  • Amazing

    "This house is amazing!! It's a place where you can escape reality. The private peer with hammock was a beautiful place to see living Sand Dollars, seagulls, ducks, cranes, and most of all have a picnic at the picnic table. House came with everything but food and bath towels. This place has the most beautiful sunsets, sunrises and most of all night star gazing from the 3rd floor deck. We rented this place for a vacation/romantic getaway. The hot tub on the second floor was perfect for relaxing after a day of sightseeing. I will come back here again and have recommended it to all my friends and family. The owners were the nicest people to email and were super wonderful people. You could tell that took great care of the people who rented their house. We had a gift basket waiting on us whenwe arrived and received a thank you note from the owners within the first week back home. They go above and beyond to make sure our vacation was relaxing and worry free. Thank you."

  • 1st Time in Outer Banks

    "This was our first vacation to the Outer Banks. We were very pleased with the Blue Fin. We traveled with six adults, four children 2 and under and one dog. There was plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the home. The kitchen was well equipped and even provided kitchen towels and paper towels. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The only suggestion would be for the playground area to either be sand or grass. There were too many rocks and plants for the children to play outside. The children did enjoy the swing set, pool, and porch swing. The first day we walked to the beach which was about a mile walk. The rest of the time we took the shuttle which was much more enjoyable. The gated community is great and we enjoyed using the community indoor and outdoor pools as well. We also enjoyed the short walk to Duck. Of course the Duck donuts were great! We were not prepared for the four hours that it took us to go the last twenty miles to the house in bumper to bumper traffic. Would certainly recommend this home and community."

  • Mini-Vacation

    "Autumn is our favorite time of the year and The Little Cabin on the Hillside provided a cozy experience for the two of us! This adorable cabin had everything we needed plus more! The owners were more than gracious and invited us to share the beautiful view of the river from their property up the hill. There was a full "Blood Moon" while we were there. It was stunning to see it shine on the water! The cabin is located near the Historic Town of Edenton. Recommend a visit there especially to tour the newly restored lighthouse and eat lunch at the 309 Bistro. The Edenton Coffee House has wonderful coffees and pastries too."

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.
