Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Ocean Front and Center

    "We've been renting houses at OBX for over a decade, and have learned that people have different styles of enjoying a beach vacation. For us, first is location, location, location. We want to feel the beach, not just see it. At Nirvana, you step off the deck stairs into the sand, and at high tide you’re just a few paces from submerging in the ocean. Picture rolling out of bed, pulling on your trunks, and in seconds, diving in for a cool swim, followed by a nice hot outdoor shower! As a surf nut, albeit a much older and less capable one, I was thrilled to find the house faced a sandbar offshore that created surfable waves daily, and also a following of surfers -- great amusement watching from the decks. Although there are other houses close on each side, Nirvana is a few feet forward of them which makes them not feel imposing when on the decks, and the closeness to the high tide mark pretty much guarantees your beach space right out front. The deck and the living space seating was more than adequate and comfortable for the four of us and the hot tub was well maintained. We cooked all our meals and found the kitchen quite practical for that -- new stone counters were appreciated. The house is not pretentious, but as comfortable as can be, and who could ask for more (well granted, some folks have other standards and a need for elegance). But for me, Nirvana is a fine beach house, with responsive owners who obviously have focused on providing what’s important. And nothing could be more elegant than the Atlantic which is there for you, up close and personal all the time. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nirvana."

  • The Hodges Family

    "We celebrated my brother-in-laws 40th birthday at this beautiful home. We are completely spoiled with this location on the outer banks. The house was perfect with everything we needed. The owners were very attentive to any questions I had for them. The house was perfectly located to the beach in walking distance which was a good time for the family to talk and laugh on the way. Will never forget the memories we made and can't wait to return."

  • Beach Attitude = Paradise!

    "2014 marked the third time in the past 4 years that my extended family has stayed at Beach Attitude. This repeat business is a testament to the Harrison's meticulous upkeep and customer service. Every year the house is clean and everything works - this year the new appliances in the kitchen were a nice bonus. The location within Corolla Light is great, with easy walks to the Sound, the Atlantic, or any of the resort's amenities. Being at the north end of Corolla also makes for quick, easy access to the 4x4 beaches if you are properly equipped. All in all, another great week on the Outer Banks; I'm sure we will be back again."

    "Nice home. We were allowed to experience many of the activities that the sound and the sea had to offer within 1 mile. The house had many extra perks."

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.
