Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Was a nice home, but needs some work

    "The house keeping leaves nothing to be desired. After cleaning and changing sheets when we got there, there are a few things that need updated king mattress, pillows, pool table and cover that fits the hot tub. But we did have fun there and there was more room than the photos give it credit for, was nicely decorated, and kids loved the bunk beds against wall on second floor, the 1 st floor bunk beds need a ladder."

  • Great for pets!

    "We loved this home! We were here for a partial week in September with our black lab. Our dog loved walking around and around the house on the upper deck... on "patrol"... He also loved laying on the back upper deck feeling the breeze. There are gates on the front and back steps so we didn't have to worry about him getting loose. The outdoor shower made it really easy to rinse off the dog after playing on the beach. We really only used the 2nd floor of the house because it was just 2 of us, but the bottom floor is a complete unit in itself with its own kitchen etc. The top floor has new carpet, the beds were very comfortable, & the kitchen was fully equipped. It was great grilling on the front deck with a view of the ocean. Most days we could just walk straight across the street to the ocean, unless those houses were rented... Otherwise the beach access is only about 4 houses down - a very short walk. The house is also close to Winks grocery which had great chicken salad lunch plates! Deb is very easy to deal with & will answer any questions you have!"

  • Great Vacation!!!

    "We had an incredible time! This is our second vacation at the Outer Banks. We had a couple of small issues and Nik, the caretaker, was very prompt in dealing with those. The pool area was perfection! The kids enjoyed the slide and the pool is huge. Beautiful sunsets on the sound made for some great photos. The wild horse tour is less than 15 minutes away, that was a lot of fun. We would definitely consider this home again."

    "This was one of the most greatest experiences that I have ever be involved in. Melissa and Bill have to be the most caring people you will ever encounter. No matter what you paid to stay in their beautiful home you will leave feeling it was a great deal and worth every penny. I want to send a special thanks to Melissa for everything you did to make this trip for our family members a reality. We will always be grateful for the memories our family members have made for a lifetime. We hope for you and your family great happiness!!"

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.
