  • Family Times

    "The house was perfect for our family! We have adults and kids of all ages and there were plenty of baths and bedrooms for all! Kids could hang out on second level while adults gathered on third level. The kitchen was fully stocked with all we needed and more. Lovely views and decks! Enjoyed our stay!"

  • Shells OH Yeah!

    "We just got back from spending a wonderful week at the beach. Shells Yeah, is a quick walk to the ocean and a short drive to a wonderful bay side beach. though you can't really see much of the ocean from the house, you can hear it and the walk is so short that we really didn't miss it,. this house has a beautiful screened in porch that keeps the bugs out nicely. a great deck for sunning and since its up in the air you feel like your in a tree house. everything is in such an easy drive or walk from the house we had such a great time and will recommend it to anyone who does not have bad knees. there are a lot of stairs to get to the house but once there......;)"

  • Best of the Best!

    "Hello, my name is Vince and I am currently on my last night in your wonderful beach house, Sounds Terrific! Since I was a baby my parents brought me to the Outer Banks twice a year. We started out camping in a pop up at Pea Island Resort before it became what it is named now. Eventually we outgrew that and my parents began renting homes from Surf or Sound. These were the greatest memories of my childhood, despite all of the other places my parents took me around the country. When I became an adult with a family of my own I continued to come out here and rent homes from Surf or Sound twice a year. Now that I am nearly 37 and have teenagers of my own this is still every bit of my heaven as it was when I was a young child. I come once a year with my family and once a year with other couples that have never gotten to experience the Outer Banks. We are on the latter of two trips currently, but planning a Thanksgiving family trip for this November. I have stayed in so many of the homes but this is the first time I have ever stayed sound side. I have to say out of all the homes that I have stayed in your home is the best one yet hands down. It is beautiful, comfy, and has everything you could need and more. For the first time I am not interested in staying at another home and cannot wait to come back and stay here again!"

  • Great Anniversary!

    "This property was exactly as described! I cant imagine finding a more perfect place to stay. There were just 2 of us, but beds for 6. Cooking was a breeze with all the items provided, so much so that we only ate out once. Although it was a bit early in the season, we found that everything we wanted to do was available. We took the kayak on a tour of the sound, and my husband dumped me...much to our neighbors delight! He offered to call the Coast Guard for us, but we managed. (The water was about 2 ft deep) Kiteboarders could be seen out almost every window. We plan on returning next year, and bringing my parents along for some much needed R&R. Thanks for sharing your home with us! You helped me an awesome 1st Anniversary!"

Buxton Travel Tips

Buxton Beach House Rentals: Wondrous Oceanside Lodging

North Carolina's Outer Banks have been an immensely popular vacation destination for many years. The natural beauty, mostly perfect climate, and pristine beaches and waterways lure travelers during all seasons. If an Outer Banks vacation is on the agenda, consider Buxton beach house rentals to meet lodging needs. Buxton homes are an ocean lover's dream, offering ocean views of crimson and blaze-orange sunsets from open-air decks or screened porches. With numerous options to choose from, Buxton beach house rentals may offer private pools with tiki bars alongside the comforts of home, making for a perfect stay on the Outer Banks.

Outer Banks' Beauty Nearby

Located on beautiful Hatteras Island, wonder surrounds Buxton homes. Cape Hatteras National Seashore is the perfect way to enjoy the barrier islands, which have survived the ever-pounding sea and wind. The shoreline stretches over 70 miles. In some places, visitors can find isolated beaches where the sea birds are the only other life in sight. Many chances for fun and recreation exist at Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Spend a day or two enjoying the sun and surf while sunbathing, swimming, fishing, canoeing, sailing, s

helling, surfing, and snorkeling.

Explore Lighthouses and Shipwrecks

In 1870, men erected the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse to guide sailors away from the treacherous shoals that lie a few miles off shore, earning the Outer Banks the name "Graveyard of the Atlantic." A visit to the lighthouse, the tallest in the country, is a testament to man's long-time love affair with the often dangerous sea. Nearby, roam through exhibits and collections from shipwrecks at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum. Many vessels have met their end in these waters and are remembered in exhibits. Hatteras Island's many activities are best culminated by a home-cooked meal and cocktails at Outer Banks vacation rentals—the perfect end to a day on the seashore.
