  • Beautiful house

    "My husband and I rented this unit with another couple, and all of us enjoyed it! The men enjoyed the golf course that this house sits on. We've used VRBO at various locations and this was one of our favorites. Very clean and owners communicate fast with questions. I hope to use it again in the future!"

  • Beautiful, cozy home! Great location too.

    "This was our first trip to Duck. We had a blast! The home was as pictured. Even better in person. The owner thought of everything. She has excellent taste. Kitchen is stocked. The location to the beach was great - 30 second bike ride; 2 min walk. The pool was a bonus. The kids loved it. We traveled with 5 kids - the teenagers loved the Roku system in their bedrooms. Also, very close to the Town of Duck which made morning runs to Duck Donuts convenient. 10 mins from the nearest Walmart, CVS, and Harris Teeter. We hope to return next year."

  • 1st timers in OBX

    "This was our first time to the OBX. Been wanting to come for years and finally did. The drive down the beach to the house was beautiful but just a little bit far (15 miles) to be exact lol but well worth it. There were 9 of us and the house was plenty big enough for all of us. The crows nest was awesome any time of the day. Plenty of kitchenware, cupboard and counter space for everything. I was diagnosed with throat cancer on my bday (dec 2 2013) then my mother-in-law passed away 1 week before Xmas. So thanks to my wonderful husband for suggesting OBX for a well over due well deserved vacation. We will definitely be back, probably next year, for another fun filled vacation. Thank you to the people at Karichele Realty for all of your help"

  • Sleeping with the Fishes was a great place to stay!

    "We loved staying at Sleeping with the Fishes! Plenty of living space for our extended family. The grandchildren liked sleeping in the bunk room, and I liked reading in the screened porch. We were close to the beach, the lake and shopping. We were very comfortable during our stay. On a return visit I would consider bringing a large electric frying pan. Cooking breakfast for a large group was challenging, but I noted in a previous review that the owner plans to buy some new pans. It was a wonderful vacation. I would love to return to Sleeping with the Fishes!"

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.
