  • Beautiful Currituck Club Home

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We were only able to stay here for 5 night in early October, but this house was one of the most beautiful we've ever stayed in. The amenities were wonderful as well as the secluded location. The 2 king master suites are what we always look for when traveling with our daughter and her family. Will definitely try to bring them here - we know they will love it."

  • Great Family Get-A-Way!

    "I rented "Swinkels" for a short family get a way. There were 5 of us plus our 3 family dogs. We were NOT disappointed in the home at all. Cleanliness was a big thing for us and our expectations were met. It felt like a home a way from home. The weather was cool but since it was off season, we expected it to be cooler. The beaches were deserted, which made it nice. We had a rain day which we didn't mind because the place was cozy to relax in. The front and back deck were nice to relax on with nice views of the sound and ocean, although you have to see the view between houses. The beach was a short walk away and the water was beautiful. The location is great with plenty of things to see both north and south. Graveyard of the Atlantic, Wright Bros. museum and Ocracoke Island were nice to see as well as the Lighthouses in the area. The highlight was a trip from Ocracoke to the uninhabited Portsmouth Island. I would definitely stay here again! The owner was great to deal with. Very prompt in replying to emails and phone calls. We received our security deposit back in a very timely manner. Overall, this is a great place to stay and it won't drain your wallet. Enjoy!"

  • Amazing amazing!!!

    "Wow. We were blown away by how nice this place was. Right on the water, the screened in porch was our favorite place to sit and relax. The views are amazing. It was so close to everything - we came right before the season started so a lot of the restaurants were closed, but we were within walking distance to Zillie's (open year round) so we were happy. We will definitely be staying here again!!"

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.
