Accommodation at Westside Inn

Beautiful landscaping, quiet atmosphere, and remarkable wide-open views of Croatan Sound. Westside Inn provides the perfect intimate luxury waterfront setting for a weekend retreat with its picturesque wooded setting on Roanoke Island, in the heart of North Carolina's Outer Banks.

The property has spacious lawns, a small private beach, multiple gardens, and the most amazing sunsets! The owners have built this property with love for than 35 years and recently decided to open it up for others to experience the beauty and tranquility of this area. 


Featuring 3 split levels, the home offers easy separation of activities and privacy. Guests will find the great middle-level living area with classical style furniture and decor, as well as the kitchen and dining area. Brew your morning coffee and enjoy it from the enclosed sunroom overlooking the water, or maybe while taking in the island forested views. The lower-level living space offers a private escape from Westside Inn's more populated areas. It is a great spot to journal or just grab a book and enjoy the peacefulness outside the window overlooking the Sound; or just sit back and relax. 

Private Chef

This retreat will included all meals freshly made in house by International ayurveda chef Olivia Lifsey. 


In 2013 Olivia attended Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado where she received her Bachelor’s degree in Traditional Eastern Arts with a concentration in Yoga, as well as completing over 1,000 hours of yoga teacher training. Upon graduation in 2015, Olivia registered with Yoga Alliance and began her yoga teaching career while traveling throughout Central America, and in her hometown of Chagrin Falls, Ohio.

In pursuit of year-round beach life, Olivia moved to the Outer Banks in 2016 and began teaching yoga full time at Village Yoga in Duck, North Carolina. Olivia is currently certified as a 200 ERYT, 500 RYT, YACEP. She is Reiki I certified, SUP yoga certified, and is a certified ayurvedic health coach.

After years of studying and practicing yoga, ayurveda, and even some ‘out there’ wellness fads- the one constant that has always been a pillar to Olivia’s healing journey is her relationship to food.

Food is Olivia’s love language, from growing up making homemade pasta noodles with her grandmother, to traveling the world and trying unfamiliar exotic foods- taste is her most grounding sense. Olivia believes that food brings humans together. When served with love and intention, all food can be Soul Food.

Inspired by her own lifelong healing journey, Olivia is dedicated to educating and empowering others to learn how to heal themselves through ayurveda, Soul food, mindful movement, and self-love.

When Olivia is not dreaming up recipes in the kitchen or teaching classes in the studio you can find her tending to her garden, surfing with her husband Nathan, or playing with their dog, Buddy.

My experience with my yoga trainer Pauline Sweeney was beautiful and life enhancing. We set our intention for me to leave behind everyone and every mindset no longer serving my highest good, to practice yoga, to indulge in daily sound baths and….to adventure. Pauline made sure I was empowered to do all of this work and more. I Highly recommend her! 20 Million Stars to her abilities 💛👑. Signed with love and honor, Sarah Davis
