Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Beautiful home - needs some attention

    "First, the home was beautiful. Loved the space. The kitchen cooking supplies are very limited, but plenty of dishes. Had two days of rain and several roof leaks. One couple had to relocate their room. Lights were broken and couldn't figure out how to play music at pool - no directions, speakers are there. Couldn't hook computer to TV to watch a football game that was not available on any station. It was a beautiful home, it just needs some maintenance attention."

  • Great house and a beautiful area

    "As newbies to the NC area, we had no idea what to expect. We now plan on making the Outer Banks a yearly excursion! Everything was just as described and more! The cottage was clean with great amenities...including an outdoor shower! I'm not sure why, but that was my favorite part of the house. We made many meals in the kitchen and used the outdoor bbq grill more than once. The cottage location was perfect. We were within a few walking minutes of the beach, Ice Cream, supplies, restaurants, etc. It's not easy to please a family 5 when 3 of them are teenagers. We all had a memorable time and Cheers was a great part of it. Thank you!!!"

  • Perfect week

    "My husband and I dropped our last child at college and took a week at the beach for just us. This cottage was perfect. We have stayed in the OBX at various homes over the past twenty years and this was hands down the best appointed cottage. It is beautifully decorated, spotless, has beautiful decks and a relaxing hammock and swing. The kitchen is the best outfitted kitchen of any beach house we have ever been in. It lacked nothing and I like to cook! Top it off with great views (easy beach access) and an incredible week of weather, we could not have had a better vacation. I cannot wait to return!"

  • Great spot for families and experienced kiteboarders

    "Nice home. Perfect spot. The kiteboarding launch is a little mucky without much setup area. You will need to be proficient at drift launches if you ride alone or you will wreck your kite on the reeds. A grass launch or large dock for staging would be a nice addition"

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.
