  • Lovely Home at the Perfect Location

    "This was our first visit to the Wilmington beach area. We wanted to explore the beaches, towns, and the city, and the Sea Breeze was a perfect hub for discovering what Kure beach and the surrounding towns had to offer. The owner keeps the home very clean. The kitchen is updated with a variety of utensils and appliances to fix any sized meal. The upstairs bathroom is spacious, and I liked the optional handheld shower head. One queen bedroom was on the first floor with its own bathroom and gave my mother privacy while my husband and I slept in the upstairs in the front bedroom where we could fall asleep to the ocean. It also had a spacious back bedroom with a single and a double. The second floor and first floor decks offered wonderful views of the ocean. The first floor deck had a dining area and a ceiling fan, which came in handy to keep the bugs away and allowed us to eat our meals on the deck without getting too hot. Every morning, we ate our breakfast on the deck while listening to the ocean, watching the waves, and enjoying the pelicans flying over the water. Kure Beach pier, park and restaurants are within walking distance. Carolina Beach and its rides and restaurants are a few minute drive north. Ft. Fisher Ferry and beach along with the aquarium and museum are a ten-minute drive south. Taking the ferry to the quaint town of Southport was convenient from the Sea Breeze. We also visited Bald Head Island, another easily accessible ferry ride from Southport. Downtown Wilmington was about a 25-30 minute drive. The owner provided games, cable TV, internet access, beach chairs and umbrella, and beach toys for children. In front of the deck is the private walkway for townhome residents that goes over the dunes to the beach. It was nice to set up on the beach and then quickly pop back to the house to grab a snack or a drink. Just bear in mind that pets aren't allowed on the beach from April through the end of September. We were able to find a grassy area across the two-lane road for our dog to use the bathroom. There is also a small dog run a few blocks away at a park. Pets are allowed on Ft. Fisher beach a few minutes away. I highly recommend this property when visiting Kure beach, especially if you enjoy being directly on the ocean. It's a great deal for the price, location, and quality of the property."

  • Family Vacation

    "This was our third time visiting Carolina Beach and this rental location is our all time favorite. We all said we will be coming back to this spot the next time we visit Carolina Beach. Brian was fantastic to deal with from day one, always got back to me with an answers within a day..sometimes immediately. Don was great to deal with for our check in and check out. The condo is perfect for families. We had 4 adults and 5 kids and we had plenty of space. The location of the condo to the beach is perfect, the pool was great for all of us and Brian has so many things there for you to use - boogie boards, wagons, chairs, etc. You cannot go wrong with this location. We can't wait to come back!"

  • Beautiful House/Perfect place to stay

    "We had a wonderful vacation staying at Lee and Joan's house in the Outer Banks. You couldn't ask for better people to rent from. They will take care of anything you need and are very helpful if something should go wrong. The walk to the beach isn't bad and the location of the house is great for sightseeing and going to local restaurants. I would definitely recommend this house to others wanting to visit the Outer Banks."

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.
