    "I was part of a girls' trip to Ocracoke in April of 2013. We rented The Morning Star and loved it! It was comfortable and we had every amenity we needed. We loved having coffee on the front porch in the morning and my favorite was the outside shower! It was convenient for walking to the lighthouse, Springer's Point and even to some shops and restaurants. I look forward to coming back to The Morning Star sometime in the near future!"

  • Good Times & Good Memories!

    "Located in a quite neighborhood and walking distance to the beach, this cottage is exactly as pictured and described. It is clean and well appointed, a comfy place for a little R&R. My personal favorite was the screened in porch with a good book. We would recommend this property to anyone and plan on returning."

  • Enjoyed stay but not sure if I would rent from ...

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Enjoyed stay but not sure if I would rent from paramount again House was very nice. Well kept. Had a problem with lock box and they were immediate with response for help. Even stayed an extra day. What was an awesome stay ended with my disappointment. My daughter had left a small stuffed animal behind. Paramount charges 35$ which they say is to cover them getting the item from house and the time to pack and send it. In over 20 years of vacationing in corolla and duck we have left something behind once if twice. Never have I been charged that much. Kicker is it wasn't even sent by UPS for that price. I found it a little excessive. Employees were very nice but this left me now feeling like I got ripped off. Live and learn right. So moral of story. Loved the house. Just triple check before you leave!!!! Manager responded on 6/10/2014: Hello Mrs. Stoddard, We did offer it send it back to you at no cost using your UPS account but you could not work that out on your side so we sent it back to you Priority Mail the very day you asked us to return the item. Our return charge of $35 is a standard fee we charge for any item which is left behind. We did everything we could on our side to get your lost item back to you as you requested. We hope that you will consider vacationing with Paramount again in the future."

  • 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."

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.
