Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks property reviews

  • Loved it!

    "This is a great house and is exactly as advertised. It was clean, spacious, well maintained and very comfortable. Pool and hot tub at the house are great so we didn't even use the large pool that is steps from the end of the driveway. We did take advantage of the close proximity to the beautiful beach and to the great playground. The property management company was incredibly responsive the couple of times we called them with questions. Great large table for family gatherings. Would have been nice if the grill was upstairs on the deck off the kitchen but that is probably a community rule / fire hazard. Very close to Duck shops/restaurants. If returning to Outer Banks I'd definitely go back with my family."

  • Comfortable, Easily Accessible, Well Stocked - This One Has it All!

    "Ever gone to a beach house and said "oh if only we would have brought…"? That's the last thing you'll be saying here! From a well-stocked kitchen down to laundry detergent for the washer, Judy in the Sky is the most comfortable place I've ever stayed. And the location is prime for anyone wanting the fun and sightseeing of Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hill. Even with a somewhat busy road in front of the property, the location right across from the beach was ideal. Some "block back" properties make it difficult to access the beach, but not this one. The deeded property that serves as cut-through over the dunes was so easy to access and a breeze to carry chairs and toys back and forth to the ocean. Additionally, the inside of the house was so comfortable and well kept - the pictures don't do it justice. Several surprises too - including an outdoor shower and restroom right by the pool, and a great bonus room that opens right to the outside. We had four adults and six kids and didn't feel cramped once (the bunk bed room was clutch!). If you're looking for a great location at a great price, with room to relax and enjoy - this is it. *Side note - the property management company for this rental was also a pleasure to work with. Flexible and so friendly!*"

  • Large family

    "My large family and I stayed here and had a fabulous time. The house was clean and comfortable. One of my children left a Nintendo DS there I contact the owner immediately and he sent it back with no problem. The owner was great to work with very friendly."

  • Beautiful beach cottage

    "What a beautiful, relaxing cottage in a great location! We loved the cottage and all of its décor. It is well maintained cottage and the photos accurately show its beauty. It was a great place to relax in the evenings with the family and dogs. Its location is in the heart of the Outer Banks and an easy access to the Northern or Southern part of OBX. Sharon was great to deal with. She sent the information by mail and email and responded quickly to any questions we had. I highly recommend the Magnolia Cottage and hope to return soon."

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.
