Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Fun with cousins!

    "We all (cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents) created wonderful memories during our stay in Corolla! The house was fabulous and had everything we needed and much more (including gear for the 18 month old). We never felt crowded with our group of 7 children and 6 adults. The open design of the living room and kitchen, which was stocked better than all our kitchens combined, was a great gathering place for everyone. We went to the beach almost every morning and then spent the afternoon in the pool. Our kids really loved the pool, especially with the outdoor music and lighting. We even used the cute little porch with colorful lights for chit chats and coffee! The owner was very accessible and extremely informative with any questions we had. We would definitely recommend staying at this house!"

  • Great Stay

    "My family and I loved this place. The house was perfect for the four us and our lab. We loved the location being just over the dunes to the beach and it made for great sunrises enjoying coffee on the covered front porch and watching the dolphins, or horses. Our first couple days there the weather was nice enough to have the windows open and on our first morning we were cordially awakened by four or five of the natives that were up feeding on the dune next to house. The house being located at the south end of the 4x4 beaches made it nice not driving too far up the beach to get there. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was that not all the windows had screens and it would have been so nice to open all the windows at night and let the breeze blow through the house. The other and it really wasn't the owners fault but previous guests must have really enjoyed fish and seafood as it took a couple boxes of Arm & Hammer and a few days to get the odor out of the fridge and freezer. We would definitely stay again without hesitation though."

  • The Name is Fitting - Very Nice

    "We enjoyed a great week at the house including hurricane Arthur. Comfortably accommodated 10 people. We hit the dock each night for sunset photos on the sound. The owners have bikes and kayaks for use which was very nice. You do have to drive to the beach if you are hauling stuff but there are a few public parking lots close to the beach. I think the location is perfect. Close to grocery stores, shops and dining and the traffic is not bad like it is further south. We really liked staying here!! Pros Easily sleeps 10-12 Pool and plenty of seating Nice size hot tub Pool and chairs Located in the water - soundside Extras like Kayaks, Bikes, beach chairs... Management company will make key arrangements if you come in via 64 Cons No TV in the main living area - World Cup was on and a little frustrating Cleaning crew did not do a very good job in the kitchen prior to our arrival All Decking and upper level deck furniture need to be repaired or replaced Grill is a little small and holes rusted through bottom"

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.
