  • Relaxing week at the beach!

    "We had a wonderful time at the castle by the sea. Even though we came late in the season the weather was beautiful. The sunrise and sunset were spectacular. The house was spotless and very comfortable for two big families. We brought some firewood and used the outside firepit and really enjoyed it. The owner is friendly and easy to get in touch with. We can't wait to come back!"

  • It Is What It Is!

    "The owners of this home have gone out of their way to provide a safe, secure and sun filled home for vacationers to treasure for years to come. The listing is accurate...the photos of the home reflect reality...the owners provide clear and useful information about the area...and eliminate any ambiguity about the rental terms and expectations of renters...it is what it is! The owners were extraordinarily flexible in working with us on a late season rental moving away from the traditional weekend to weekend rental drum beat...and accommodated a pet dog to boot. Our security deposit was fully refunded and almost beat us home. The owners are honorable and genuine people. This one is a keeper!"

  • Great weekend!

    "Very nice house, fully equipped. Great location, we enjoyed a magnificent sunset on the sound side. The owner is very nice and easy to work with, she replied immediately to all my questions. There is plenty of wildlife, we saw many deer and a fox from the deck of the house. My son enjoyed fishing on the beach, the rest of us spent more time in the hot tub or on the very long Duck boardwalk. I recommend breakfast at Duck Doughnut (walking distance from the house). We will be back!"

  • Wonderful Hospitality

    "My husband and I just visited the beautiful town of Edenton, NC and chose to stay in this lovely home! The hospitality was just as expected with all the southern charm we were looking for! The bed and linens were very comfortable and we had a wonderful nights sleep! The private bath was an expected treat, as some b&b do not have private bathes. We awoke to a wonderful breakfast, which Jaynie had prepared herself, and not only was it delicious, it was so elegantly presented! Jaynie and Tom were a sweet, endearing couple that anyone would enjoy spending time with:) Also, their lab, Blanche, was very sweet, never even heard her bark! The view, towards the sound, is simply breathtaking! You won't be disappointed!"

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.
