Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks property reviews

  • The Hodges Family

    "We celebrated my brother-in-laws 40th birthday at this beautiful home. We are completely spoiled with this location on the outer banks. The house was perfect with everything we needed. The owners were very attentive to any questions I had for them. The house was perfectly located to the beach in walking distance which was a good time for the family to talk and laugh on the way. Will never forget the memories we made and can't wait to return."

  • Wonderful beach home!

    "My husband, five-year-old son, and I rented SandMann for a week in June with friends and their two children. The home was just as pictured and described. Such lovely decor and comfortable, clean, and nice floor plan. The outdoor space was great for relaxing at any time of day, and the hammock was a favorite place for naptime! This home really allows for connecting to the seashore and the coastal environment. We saw dolphins from the porch, and even a few little crabs in the parking area. Owner Ron was kind, helpful, and quick to respond always. The location is really convenient with stores (Harris Teeter for groceries and Wings for beach items and souvenirs) and restaurants (many choices, but can be a little expensive) just a short drive away, and Bodie Island Light Station even closer. Jockey's Ridge State Park is also close by and a surprisingly beautiful example of the naturalness of OBX. Cape Hatteras is a pleasant drive as well. So much to do. Although, staying at the house would be more than enough, with the beach so very close and many beach and water items provided at the home, the patio/deck for relaxing, and the TVs were newer and of good quality. The outdoor shower is a huge benefit. Parking under the home is also a plus. We would definitely return, and certainly recommend this home as a wonderful place to spend a vacation, or many."

  • Perfect Location, Perfect Vacation

    "What a great vacation our family enjoyed in your super home! It suited our needs perfectly from the multiple bedrooms and baths to the generously appointed kitchen. The nearness to the beautiful beach and on-location swimming pool was ideal for our family(s). Other pluses included the front porch swing, outside shower, hot tub and wireless access. Hurricane Arthur was not much of a threat as there was no damage that we could see and no loss of power. Although there was lots of wind and rain we were still able to use the pool in the afternoon before we left. We tried to leave the place in good shape and see that nothing was overlooked as we prepared to leave. We're already talking about a possible return trip next summer."

  • A nice place with a view.

    "A clean house that presents mostly as advertised. I really liked the red bathroom upstairs, artfully done. Everything was ready for us (except the hot tub which takes a day to warm up after cleaning), even a coffee grinder, which meant I did not need to bring my own. Ac worked fine, except we had one day when a tech had to come out and fix a leak, no biggie. Hot tub is older, but functional. Not the best location for the hot tub. Room to park my boat and three cars (a bit of a stretch, but we got them in). Private, except for an elderly neighbor who apparently is a resident who was always outside doing something. But he kept to himself. Sound was nice, a little marshy getting in, but definitely a waterside plus! Not deep enough for my Boston Whaler unfortunately, but would work for smaller craft. For the price (I got a late summer break) and for a virtually last minute rental, it worked out great. Dogs liked it too. Like other reviewers, I will mention that the trees blocked the bottom half of the sound view. But still, the sunsets were to kill for. I saw the "green flash". I would return."

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.
