Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Great house, great location!

    "I wanted to thank you for letting my family enjoy your beautiful house in Duck, NC. We love Ducked Out! The house was PERFECT and literally had anything/everything we could have asked for. The location was perfect, the pool and hot tub were both so relaxing and were enjoyed over and over and over by all of us. There was plenty of space for my family and all my baby nieces! Having two washer/dryer units and 2 dishwashers was the BEST! And we definitely took full advantage of using the golf cart for beach outings. We also enjoyed being so close to the town and walking/running along the boardwalk on the bay-side. The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is because the pool and perimeter lights kept going out. The pool guy did come by and fix the lights mid week and he explained how they trip if any moisture is encountered. But then they wound up tripping again the last night. It was difficult to see outside in the back without the lights. I would definitely recommend this property and would consider renting again in the future."

  • 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!"

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.
