  • Perfect beach house in the OBX!!

    "This was our first trip to the OBX and it was perfect! It all began with Lisa, the owner of the home who was really helpful in answering any questions I had about the place and area. There were 9 of us staying there all in our mid-late 30's. The house was perfect and the layout was great. We especially enjoyed the openness of the family room and the kitchen where we spent a large amount of time cooking together and grilling. The kitchen really had nearly everything you would need. The beach was such a short walk that it was easy to spend a few hours there, come back to lounge by the pool and then go back to the beach if you wanted to. The beach was great because it wasn't crowded and the waves were plentiful. Very relaxing! We did a large amount of our grocery shopping when we arrived and did not eat out a lot, so can't comment too much on the places to eat nearby. We did try top dog cafe which was great (get the fish tacos!!), and also checked out a new place about 1/2 mile walk down called Waterman's Bar and Grill which has live bands on some nights. It was pretty cool and we would definitely go back. We worked with shore details to get some towels, linens for the beds and beach chairs. They were great to work with and the rental costs for the linens were very really reasonable. They were also there if we had any issues and responded quickly. We had to call them when we went to grill as the propane tank was empty and quickly had it replaced for us and apologized for any inconvenience. Super sweet people. We had such a great time that we are planning on staying there again and have already reserved our week for next year!"

  • Great weekend!

    "Very nice house, fully equipped. Great location, we enjoyed a magnificent sunset on the sound side. The owner is very nice and easy to work with, she replied immediately to all my questions. There is plenty of wildlife, we saw many deer and a fox from the deck of the house. My son enjoyed fishing on the beach, the rest of us spent more time in the hot tub or on the very long Duck boardwalk. I recommend breakfast at Duck Doughnut (walking distance from the house). We will be back!"

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.
