Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Great value, good lodging

    "We enjoyed our stay at the coast. The unit was well equipped and stocked. The furnishings were appropriate and comfortable. The view from the balcony was excellent. We enjoyed the sunrises every day and walked out front to enjoy the sunsets in the evening. The grounds were clean and well attended. The laundry was a little worn around the edges, but the equipment was very good, and free! There are no elevators, so be prepared for the climb, especially if you are on the third floor. The access to the beach was excellent, the surf was both soothing and invigorating. We loved our time there and would recommend this unit to anyone. The price was very fair. The owner was very easy to deal with and quickly correctly any little issues that arose. We will stay here again in the future."

  • Donnie, Veronica and Riley pup

    "We had a wonderful time at Turning Point. The view was amazing, more than I had expected. Irene was a fantastic host. She called to ask us about the bed, because she had some complaints that it made a noise. It did, but nothing you couldn't deal with. We slept perfectly fine. We enjoyed crabbing and fishing off the dock. Our pup Riley seemed to enjoy it the most. She loved sitting in front of the glass doors or on the deck as we enjoyed our morning coffee. It is a far drive from most tourist type things, but is well worth it. You are on a part of the island that is so narrow, that you can see the sound on one side and the ocean on the other. The only suggestion I would make is to bring bug spray. The mosquitos are relentless! We even left the citronella candles we bought for the next guests. Other than that, we had a fantastic time. I have been to the OBX many times and stayed a few places. From here on out, it will be at Turning Point! We look forward to coming again next year if we can."

  • Wonderful place to get away!

    "Our family had a wonderful time at this beautiful cottage! It is located at the end of a quiet street, just minutes from the beach, but still close to everything the area has to offer. Becky warned us that it might be a little "too" cozy for us - a family of 5 - but it was lovely and helped to make our vacation perfect. :)"

  • outstanding time

    "Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed out time at your home. We have been going to Outer Banks for the last 5 years, and this is the first time the kids didn't keep asking what are we doing next. They had plenty to keep them happy. We made use of everything there and enjoyed all of it. The highlight of the week, we were all out by the dock fishing and two members of our family had taken the canoe out right out in front of us, when 5 dolphins appeared and circled the boat twice and then went on there way. The kids loved it. Thanks again for the use of your home. Shiffletts from Shenandoah, Va"

Northern Coast & Outer Banks Travel Tips

The Outer Banks is a glorious stretch - 200 miles, to be exact - of barriers islands and peninsulas along the North Carolina coast. Though it boasts magnificent beaches, there’s plenty to do here year-round.

What to Do

The options are nearly endless in the Outer Banks.

- Take a hike at the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site on the northern end of Roanoke Island and visit the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens - a memorial to the first colonists.

- Immerse yourself in the history of flight at the Wright Brothers National Memorial and Museum in Kill Devil Hills, just south of Kitty Hawk.

- Visit the North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island to feed stingrays, pet an alligator, learn about sea turtle rescues and be wowed by the largest group of captive sharks in North Carolina.

- Go Kayaking or take stand up paddleboarding lessons in Kitty Hawk Bay from Kitty Hawk Kites or Kitty Hawk Surf Company.

- Do something extreme at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. There are awesome sand dunes here - if you know how to sand-board, get a permit and come here between October 1 and March 31. You can also take hang-gliding lessons from Kitty Hawk Kites and soar over Jockey’s Ridge, or go windsurfing in the shallow Roanoke Sound.

- Play a game of golf at any of the excellent courses, from the Currituck Club up in Corolla all the way down to Nags Head Golf Links.

What to See

The Outer Banks offer miles of scenic beauty and historic treasures.

- See the many historic lighthouses on the coast. Make sure you have your walking shoes on when you climb Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on Hatteras Island - it has 248 stairs on an iron spiral staircase, the equivalent of climbing 12 stories! After all of your work, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of the Atlantic. You can also visit the Ocracoke Lighthouse on Ocracoke Island at the very southern point of the Outer Banks, or head to the northernmost point to learn the sordid and mysterious history of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla.

- Visit the Roanoke Settlement Site, the first English colony in the New World and learn about the mysteries of The Lost Colony. It’s an educational experience with games and woodworking to show what life was like back then. You can also visit and board a replica of the Elizabeth II, one of the boats that arrived in the New World in 1585. There’s plenty of activities for both kids and adults to enjoy here. In the summer, the play “The Lost Colony” is performed to educate and entertain.

- Check out the views from Jockey’s Ridge and Jennette’s Pier, both in Nags Head. Sunsets here are simply unmatched.

Events

There are plenty of festivals in the Outer Banks that harness its unique heritage and location. Check out the Bluegrass Island Festival, a newer addition to the fall lineup held the first weekend in October. It features Bluegrass by traditional artists as well as younger revival artists. Don’t forget to come for the homey Southern-style cooking!

The Outer Banks Seafood Festival is another fest celebrating coastal heritage. It’s held for one weekend in mid-October every year in Nags Head across the Roanoke Sound. Aside from enjoying various local seafood and cooking demonstrations, visitors can participate in the Fish House Olympics, including a Mullet Toss - the fish, not the hairstyle - and crab races. There’s also live music and a Dock & Dine event hosted by The Dunes Restaurant.
