Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • WV Mountaineer

    "I highly recommend this beach house and would definitely stay here again. The location is close to many restaurants and is oceanfront. The view is fantastic from the dining area and the deck. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. This house has the Outer Banks cottage feel with all the modern amenities of the more expensive rental properties. I had a great vacation at Gracie Bell's Sea Shell!"

  • Cozy, clean and comfortable!

    "This place is just as it appears in the photos. It was clean and comfortable. The rooms were nice sized, including a very large bathroom. The location was great. We especially appreciated the ample, comfortable seating in the living room. It was well appointed, and well maintained. The neighborhood was quiet. And Lisa was very easy to work with! We came down for a girl's getaway, and would definitely stay here again."

    "My family just got back from spending some quality time at this lovely home. This was our second stay at this home and we will be going back again. Why? Because it is a great house, wonderful location and the owners are very nice and helpful. They go out of their way to insure you have everything you need for a great vacation. Views are great from every window in the house ,you won't be disappointed. The horses that stroll by are so beautiful and always a thrill to see them by the ocean as well."

  • Great Place, Great People!

    "Great location, excellent facility and wonderful owners to deal with. Very easy transaction from check in to check out - hassle and stress free, just as vacation should be. The location was good for what we were looking for - off the beaten path a bit, away from the busy crowds of Kitty Hawk but still close enough to everything you need. Access to beach and sound both within very short walking distance. Great deck to enjoy the afternoon sun and morning coffee on. Immaculate accomodations with all ammenities, never wanted for anything. There were only two of us (and a dog) but with three bedrooms and large living areas including open kitchen/dining area and screened in porch and open decks - it would have been more then big enough for a large family or several couples. We were there is late March so shops in town weren't all open, but there was still enough open to meet our needs. Neighbourhood was great with friendly people and good privacy. Really enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend. And if you are into Kiteboarding, this is the place to be - several rental outfits within walking distance, a great day use area less then 5min drive and beach access everywhere."

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.
