Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Beautiful and peaceful location perfectly situated in Outer Banks

    "We rented Inn over Our Heads for the last two weeks of August 2014. My family (2 small children ages 4 & 7, Mom, husband & two small dogs) really enjoyed our first time in the Outerbanks. Inn Over Heads is perfectly situated, stocked with all the essentials including beach chairs and bikes and everything in the home was in good working order. It is a short stroll to the beach, close to restaurants, ice cream shops, and great fishing and crabbing piers for the little ones. Scott was extremely helpful and provided very helpful information and insights regarding things to do and restaurants to try as well as fish shops. We really enjoyed our vacation and were so pleased to be far from the congestion and mega monster homes of Nags Head, Duck and Corolla. We felt we truly enjoyed the peace and beauty of the Outer Banks. We will definitely be back and will stay at Inn Over Our Heads again!"

  • Awesome memories were made!

    "Good morning Maurice, I finally have a minute to sit down and say thank you again for opening your home for our family vacation – we really enjoyed the trip. As you know it was our first trip to the OBX and it didn’t disappoint. The house was wonderful and I’m so happy that we chose Corolla for our location, I don’t think we could have ended up in a better spot for a first trip. The house setup and location worked perfect for our group. Access to the beach was very easy and quick and the beaches were great in that area. We cooked out several nights and spent many hours in the pool and hot tub. We hit several of the restaurants in the area including the pizza parlor, sooies bbq, ice cream and the lighthouse deli. The guys were able to get out and play a round of golf at the Currituck Club which was awesome – what a great course. We also enjoyed several games on the basketball court and loved the entrance to the house with the nice long driveway and off the main road – perfect for kids. The house was great and very accommodating – it felt like a home once we settled in. It had everything we needed from plates, cups, and silverware to blenders, spices, and toys. We loved all the natural light and the evening views of the golf course from the deck. The t.v in each room was also helpful with the kids. We loved that the entire group could hang out upstairs together – that was basically the main social gathering area as you probably know. We also got to make a drive towards Hatteras – it was beautiful down there and next time I think we have to rent a jeep so we can get out on the beaches!"

  • Wonderful Stay at Rancho Relaxo!

    "We stayed at the Rancho Relaxo the week of July 13. My husband, 2 children (a 2 year old and a 6 year old) and my mother and father in law all had a wonderful time! Although the walk to the beach was a bit too far (with small kids and all of their stuff! :) ), there was plenty of public parking lots. The house was clean and the kitchen was more than adequately stocked! We love vacationing in OBX and would definitely consider staying at Rancho Relaxo again. Mike's communication with all of my questions was wonderful!"

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.
