  • A Perfect Respite In A Beautiful Home!

    "I simply cannot speak highly enough about our experience with the owner and the home itself. The owner checked in with me multiple times on Friday as I traveled down to the island and like a caring parent, made sure all was well with me. As a 30-something woman traveling alone for the majority of my trip, this created a sense of comfort that was maintained throughout our visit. John is a professional yet caring owner and his focus on giving us a wonderful weekend was unparalleled. The home was EXACTLY as described and fit our needs to a tee. The kitchen was beautifully equipped, clean, and the living area fully stocked with books, magazines, games, and above all, comfort. The bedrooms and bath were beautifully maintained. From arrival to departure, we had no complaints. We absolutely would rent here again. I think the only constructive criticism I can offer is really pointed more at guests than the owner - and that is, while I was ecstatic to see multiple trays of ice frozen upon our arrival, they were all made from the tap and my 30+ years of OBX living has taught me that drinking water and ice should be done with bottled water. I made sure to remake our ice with bottled water and I would encourage other visitors to do the same. After we cleaned the property (a task I at first felt might be daunting but my OCD kicked in and my bf told me I managed to get it cleaner than when we started and that's a feat since it was spotless when we arrived!) the owner graciously offered to allow us to keep our car parked at the home while we spent the day at the beach before leaving. It's this kind of personalized hospitality that puts the OBX Fun House a notch above the rest and the reason that we wouldn't hesitate for a moment to rent here again. Many thanks to the owner for a FANTASTIC weekend in this wonderfully equipped and comfortable home. We simply couldn't have asked for more! :)"

  • Spacious House with Everything you need!

    "We filled the house with 3 Families (6 Adults and 6 children aged 10 and under) so were pleased to find it lived up to previous reports of being very spacious. It was great to be able to all sit together for some meals and send the children away to the games area so we could also enjoy Adult meals for a change! There during a cold, blustery weekend, the short walk to the beach was ideal. Would definitely consider a return trip."

  • Home away from Home, Only Better!

    "My family of 7 had a great time at the Outer Banks, thanks in large part to this Rental Home. It was just as stated in the ad, only better! The outside shower and beach cart were added bonuses that came in very handy! The house was very clean and well appointed - not once did we need something that wasn't there (lucky to find out we needed to bring our own linens/towels prior to our visit). Proximity to stores, beach and local entertainment was great! Kids rented some bikes and were off and at 'em all week! I highly recommend this property and wish I was still there!"

  • Girls Marathon Weekend at OBX

    "We had a fabulous time for our Girls only marathon weekend! The house was exactly at mile 8 (for those of us running the half) which was super convenient. We got to wave to our own private cheering section! The hot tub was our blissful reward post race. (Although climbing all the stairs after the race was a bit brutal ;-) )Having two coffee pots was perfect for our house full of java lovers ;-). Everything we needed and then some. We're talking about making this an annual tradition! The house was great, plenty of space, supplies. Highly Recommend."

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.
