Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Great family vacation home!

    "This house was perfect for our family reunion of 17 (10 adults 7 children). The beach was an easy walk. The pool and kiddie slide were great for our young ones learning to swim and the hot tub was a real plus for the adults. The house was spacious and the view terrific. There were many amenities nearby."

  • Perfect Location, perfect condo!

    "This condo is so conveniently located. We were right in the middle of everything we wanted to do, all the way up to Corolla for a horse tour and all the way south to Ocracoke. It is near so many good restaurants (Black Pelican and Duck Donuts were our faves!) and just a couple minutes from The Wright Brothers Memorial, near Jockey's Ridge, and a hop over to Roanoke Island. The condo itself was perfect. We have stayed in a lot of places and usually we are saying "I wish this place had a....., or I wish it was....." But honestly, we never mentioned a single thing about this condo needing anything. Oh wait, my son did, an elevator! Ha! He counted 48 steps to the top. It actually became a fun thing for us to do everytime we'd start climbing we would start counting! We got used to it after a couple days and the added exercise was good for us. My son loved the bunk bed and the games and books that were on hand. The kitchen was so pretty, my husband and I loved it! It had everything we needed, even things I brought with me because a lot of condos do not have those items in the kitchen.... this one did! The view is sooooo nice! We could hear the ocean from inside and it was heaven. The balcony was great, lots of room, although we didn't get to sit out there much because it was so cold. We even saw some snowflakes the day we arrived, very cool! I would totally recommend staying here. The owner is very nice and easy to work with. We can't wait to go back!"

  • Fun in the Sun!

    "Great trip with two families. House well equipped for little kids with gates, toys, etc., plus super short walk to and from the beach when little ones need a break. We appreciated that the new kitchen was outfitted with every kind of utensil, from ice cream scoops and cheese graters to a food processor. Definitely fit for a foodie! Plus we loved the private pool and hot tub. Great house for our group. We will come back!"

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.
