Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Cozy and Convenient

    "Great location central to Hatteras lighthouse and Hatteras village. Frisco beaches are amazing. The hospitality was so much appreciated. Chilled wine and a ready to get in hot tub was waiting after my drive."

  • Lovely, clean, quiet

    "We had a delightful four day stay (October surf fishing) at Jettshouse. It was clean, uncluttered, everything worked well (internet, TV, heat, cooling, appliances). The setting is special, off the road, so very quiet. We plan to return."

  • Saw dolphins on our first evening!

    "The cabana was cozy and we had a great time for our third wedding anniversary! The location was perfect, a short drive away from a grocery store, restaurants, and the ferry to Ocracoke. The unit was very clean upon entry and the description and pictures were accurate. Our first night we decided to watch the sunset and we were lucky enough to see a pod of about 50 dolphins a bit far off shore! A great way to kick off our long weekend! The owners were very prompt in replying to emails and easy to communicate with."

  • Excellent house!

    "This house exceeded our expectations! It was super clean and beautifully decorated. We spent our mornings touring the OBX, and our afternoons by the pool. The pool is deep, so we were happy to have life jackets along for our small kids so that we could relax. The boogie boards and sand toys for the beach were an unexpected bonus. The master suite was a luxury for my husband and I. Thoughtful touches like oranges for juicing and beverages in the fridge made us feel special upon arrival. The neighborhood is quiet, yet close enough to walk to restaurants and coffee along the highway. We will recommend this house to everyone we know traveling to the area."

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.
