  • Comfortable, Easily Accessible, Well Stocked - This One Has it All!

    "Ever gone to a beach house and said "oh if only we would have brought…"? That's the last thing you'll be saying here! From a well-stocked kitchen down to laundry detergent for the washer, Judy in the Sky is the most comfortable place I've ever stayed. And the location is prime for anyone wanting the fun and sightseeing of Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hill. Even with a somewhat busy road in front of the property, the location right across from the beach was ideal. Some "block back" properties make it difficult to access the beach, but not this one. The deeded property that serves as cut-through over the dunes was so easy to access and a breeze to carry chairs and toys back and forth to the ocean. Additionally, the inside of the house was so comfortable and well kept - the pictures don't do it justice. Several surprises too - including an outdoor shower and restroom right by the pool, and a great bonus room that opens right to the outside. We had four adults and six kids and didn't feel cramped once (the bunk bed room was clutch!). If you're looking for a great location at a great price, with room to relax and enjoy - this is it. *Side note - the property management company for this rental was also a pleasure to work with. Flexible and so friendly!*"

  • Amazing OBX Rental

    "My family and our friends with their little ones stayed at the Midas Touch in August. This is the first time where the picture did not do the house justice. The house and the living space is larger than it is shown in the picture. The separate living spaces along with the nooks and crannies allow people to gather in one area or hide out and enjoy a little alone time. The second level is divided where 2 queen rooms are on one side of the floor and the kids room and a king room on the other. This allows a little privacy for each family to have its 'own' side. And of course the ensuite for each of the room (4 out of 5) made sharing a bathroom with kids a thing of the past. The beach was less than a 5 minute walk and there is plenty of room on the beach to run around, fly kites and just hang out. And after the beach the outdoor shower is a must to clean off all the sand. When we got tired of the beach, we went to the pool club at Sanderling and enjoyed a fun filled afternoon in the salt water pool. At night when the temperature gets cooler, never fear there is a hot tub. It is just a great way to relax and end the day. All in all this is an amazing rental. However, it is so nice it feels as it's a home away from home rather than a rental! We are already planning our stay for next year!"

    "We love this cottage! It is the perfect size for 6-7 people. Extra clean and a great location! It is close to shopping, resturants, and the beach! Debra is very accommodating and made sure our stay was perfect! Looking forward to another mini vacation at the "Turtle Shell.""

  • Amazing place

    "We just got back from having a great vacation. The house was wonderful. We had a big group with a mix of family and friends which can sometimes be disastrous, but it work out great. Plenty of room for everyone to do your own thing. One couple brought down their boat and they did a lot of fishing all week. Even though we only had 3 days of sun on this vacation everyone had a great time. The pool was a lifesaver with the kids since the ocean was way to rough to swim in. Most of the people who came had never been on the 4x4 beach and they all had a blast driving on the beach. Remember let the air out of your tires. We did a lot of kayaking and went for a lot of walks to see the horses. They are everywhere so lots of good photo ops. It is neat to be that close to the beach and yet so secluded. If I had any advice to anyone planning on staying on the 4x4 beach it would be to bring a small air compressor with you it takes forever to fill your tires at the ones at the gas stations and on check out day you will be waiting in line. It took us about 45 mins to get our tires filled. Next year we are taking our own. All in all just an awesome time. Thanks Lisa for sharing your wonderful home."

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.
