About this Property

If you’re looking for amazing sunrises and spectacular sunsets as well as many other wonderful features in a first-class Outer Banks beach home, then Dawn’s Folly is the perfect choice for your family. This 5 bedroom, 5½ bath stunner offers an elegant escape with classic Outer Banks beachy decor mixed with the highest end finishes, furnishings, and electronics. Conveniently located between the ocean and sound, within walking distance of the newly remodeled Jennette’s Pier, Dawn’s Folly provides entertainment inside and out with a spacious layout and all of the amenities expected in our nicest of accommodations.

Outside, a large sodded fenced-in pool area with hot tub as well as a bar perfect for seafood steaming feasts or just the afternoon libation. Inside, no expense was spared in the design of this upscale vacation retreat. From the recreation room with ping pong table, full wet bar, and oversized flat-screen TV, to the chic open top floor plan with its luxurious kitchen, living and dining room all of which are accessed by elevator. The theme of opulence mixed with comfort continues in the bedrooms with four of the five bedrooms masters and the one that is not, it a semiprivate bath shared with the downstairs media room. Beyond that four of the five bedrooms in Dawn’s Folly have king beds with one “kids” room featuring a bunk with trundle, all though are outfitted with flat-screen TVs and a full cable package. Folly may be in the name but, every detail of this spectacular home was well thought out with the express purpose of providing the highest-end Outer Banks family vacation possible.

Located just as you enter into South Nags Head, Dawn’s Folly is one of the few places on the Outer Banks where you can experience the comforts of a newly decorated and modern home yet still get the pleasures of the “old” Outer Banks vacation that made our beaches so famous. Replenished beaches with room for everybody are a highlight and except for two conveniently placed piers, you won't find any hotels or commercial businesses in this part of the Outer Banks. The end of South Nags Head is flanked by a National Park, and dolphins, whales and even seals have been known to make an appearance here. Situated not far from Jennette’s Pier, guests are also close to Outer Banks Fishing Pier, making this truly is a fisherman or nature lover’s paradise. Even if fishing isn’t on the docket, you're also centrally located, so you can enjoy a wide range of the local’s favorite activities such as the Bodie Island Lighthouse which is minutes away, Manteo, Hatteras, and even Ocracoke if you are feeling especially adventurous. Backing up to the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Dawn's Folly offers privacy, seclusion, and amazing views.

The only thing that would be a folly with this amazing home is not booking now for your next family vacation.

Carnival Treats at the Beach—With Flavorful Creations and Allergy-Friendly Options, Donutz on a Stick Serves Up Sweet Treats for Everyone

 

David and Stephanie were not always in the business of carnival confections. In fact, Stephanie was a fitness instructor and David worked in the computer field. But he loved donuts and she loved ice cream, and when they saw an opportunity to bring their favorite treats to beachgoers, they jumped on it.

 

In 2014, the couple opened their first Donutz on a Stick—a family-run, family-friendly dessert shop on the boardwalk. They quickly realized that in order to serve everyone, they would need to get creative. “We had a family who would come in, and one of the little boys would have to wait by the door because of his gluten allergy,” David says. “That didn’t sit well with us. We wanted everyone to come under the same roof no matter what kind of allergies they had. And we continue to work towards that goal.”

 

The Williams’ daughter Desireé spent six weeks experimenting until she created a gluten-free donut that was totally safe and delicious. Gluten-free donuts are now a huge part of the business, with more than 1,000 being served each day, just out of the Duck location. But you will want to call or stop by to reserve them in advance.

 

The Williams’ other three children, David, Justin and Christian, have all invented menu items as well, such as Christian’s donut milkshake, which features hot and fresh cooked donuts blended into a milkshake with another donut on top making it picture perfect.

 

While all the Williams have created menu items, the most popular pick—the donut sundae—was actually a happy accident.

 

“We were being featured in a local magazine and we could only have one photo for the article,” David says. Since both ice cream and donuts were equally popular, “we built the donut sundae for the photo and we discovered after the photoshoot that it tasted amazing. It was completely serendipitous.”

 

The Williams family is constantly creating and improving upon their recipes. At the heart of it all is a desire to see everyone come in and enjoy an experience together. They want to bring the carnival to your mouth.

 

“No matter how busy we are—even if there’s a line down the boardwalk—every customer gets that engagement and service from us,” they say.

 

The family has since opened a second location in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area.
