Manteo apartment description
Very bright, airy, and spacious, one bedroom, one bath, garage apartment in a quiet neighborhood on Roanoke Island. Private entrance with private parking. Located on the bike path, just a ten minute bike ride to Manteo Waterfront, North Carolina Aquarium, Fort Raleigh, The Lost Colony, and Elizabethan Gardens. Ten minute (car) ride to the beach or numerous cool places to paddle.
Lots of bicycles, two tandem ocean kayaks, one tandem Carolina Keowee kayak, and a canoe, plus all the paddles and life vests. Also includes a 'tag-along' which is a great way for a younger child to safely participate in bike rides... All the comforts of home - everything you need for a quiet getaway!
Roanoke Island is located in the sound, west of the barrier islands of the Outer Banks. It is away from the hustle, bustle and traffic that are often associated with the more 'touristy' part of the Outer Banks. The area offers two national wildlife refuges within a half-hour, Cape Hatteras National Seashore, and a wide assortment of water and land related recreational opportunities.
Roanoke Island is traversed by a beautiful bicycle path that runs along the Roanoke Island Corrider. From the 'bike path', visitors may reach all the historic, cultural, and natural spots of the island, including the North Carolina Aquarium, The Lost Colony, Elizabethan Gardens, Roanoke Island Festival Park, public boat ramps and swimming areas, and great places to fish, bird, or just watch the sun set. For explorers, there are great day trips to state parks, private preserves, or other national wildlife refuges! Manteo is the ideal place to plan a host of day trips throughout eastern North Carolina.
This rental is my opportunity to share the things I love about living on Roanoke Island. Any advice or comments you might offer, I would certainly appreciate!
Things to See and Do on The Outer Banks:
You know what they say about real estate... the three most important things are location, location, and location!
- The Beach - Nags Head beaches and Cape Hatteras National Seashore are just a ten minute drive. The apartment includes beach chairs, boogie boards, and Ocean Kayaks (great for the ocean).
- Roanoke Island - Roanoke Island offers so much, I am always amazed that anyone ever leaves it (I seldom do...). The North Carolina Aquarium, Roanoke Island Festival Park, Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, the Elizabethan Gardens, the Lost Colony, and downtown Manteo are incredible spots you will not want to miss. My house is right off the Bike Path (about 100 yards) - and we live on a private, dead-end road (only five houses on the road). All the places I just mentioned are no more than a ten-minute bike ride from the apartment - and I furnish the bikes!
- Paddling Spots - Everywhere from the ocean to the sound and all kinds of bays, creeks, canals, and rivers. I provide lots of information about places to paddle on Alligator River and Pea Island National Wildlife Refuges and all around the Outer Banks.
- Take a Walk on the Wild Side!
Hatteras Island, about 30 minutes away by car, offers wonderfully pristine beaches and Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge. Pea Island has a sound access at New Inlet that's ideal for putting in kayaks or canoes to paddle in the sound. There is a great little Visitor Center, two very nice wildlife trails, and the beaches are out-of-this-world. Pea Island offers the nicest beaches on the Outer Banks.
Roanoke Island has a number of places to paddle, including all around the Elizabeth II (the replica of the ship the first English came over on... in Shallowbag Bay in downtown Manteo. You could even take a long day and paddle completely around Roanoke Island!
Dare County Mainland offers a number of adventures... paddling, walking, driving... Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge has 15 miles of color-coded paddling trails... the trail is about 30 minutes from my door! The Refuge also has a black bear population - and you can actually predictably see bears in the wild!

Wonderful little getaway!
Wonderful little getaway!
My family had a wonderful time at this quiet, comfortable apartment. It was clean and had everything we needed for a fun-filled vacation. The bikes were great and the bike path is an easy ride for younger or inexperienced riders as well as pros. We didn't get to use the kayaks or canoes, but they looked like so much fun!! And there were plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas, so we didn't need to lug those from home. Manteo itself is beautiful (loved the Waterfront) and Bonnie will give you all the info you need to explore. We also loved Fisherman's Wharf in Wanchese, at the other end of Roanke Island. My children had a great time and LOVED the resident dogs Maddie and Lizzy, who were very friendly, but not in any way bothersome. I whole heartedly recommend this place to anyone and have already done so to friends and family. Can't wait to go back!!
