Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Cozy beach condo

    "The condo was the perfect size for our family of three with a separate bedroom & bathroom for our toddler. The location is a quick walk to the beach (or drive to public parking if you have lots of beach stuff) & close to dining & shopping. The furniture was good but the queen bed in the master bedroom was more firm than we prefer. As parents to a young child, we'd love a bit more cable channels (nothing available past basic cable) because we're awake for a few hours after the little one goes to bed. Another item that may make renters happy would be wifi. Just some helpful thoughts for the owner. Overall a nice space for our vacation."

  • Perfect Location, Perfect Vacation

    "What a great vacation our family enjoyed in your super home! It suited our needs perfectly from the multiple bedrooms and baths to the generously appointed kitchen. The nearness to the beautiful beach and on-location swimming pool was ideal for our family(s). Other pluses included the front porch swing, outside shower, hot tub and wireless access. Hurricane Arthur was not much of a threat as there was no damage that we could see and no loss of power. Although there was lots of wind and rain we were still able to use the pool in the afternoon before we left. We tried to leave the place in good shape and see that nothing was overlooked as we prepared to leave. We're already talking about a possible return trip next summer."

  • Great little beach cottage!

    "This was the perfect little beach cottage for the two of us! It was extremely clean with cute, beachy decor, and everything inside (appliances and furniture) was new and in great condition. The kitchen was spacious and fully equipped with everything we needed, including special touches like a Keurig and Brita water filter. We were also very happy to find two small beach chairs and a frisbee in the closet, just what we needed! The walk to the beach was less than 5 minutes, it was just down the street and easy to get to. There also was a very small public parking lot right by the beach access, which was nice because we were able to park there and still hang out at the beach after we checked out on Sunday. Jim was great to work with, very accommodating and responded quickly to emails! We received our full cleaning deposit back within a day, which was great. For couples (or a small family), you can't find a better place than this, especially at such a great price! Other things we enjoyed in the area: Colington Cafe (just down the road), touring the Wright Brothers memorial and museum (across the street), and kayaking through Kitty Hawk Woods."

  • One of a kind experience @ the Sand Mix!!

    "First time in the 4x4 section of OBX in Corolla ... had 3 kids ranging from 5 - 14 and dog, so took a little getting used to traffic being on the beach during prime days of wknd. That said, We absolutely Loved the entire area and property!! The pics did not do justice of the serene ocean views off each level deck, especially the 360 view from the very top to look all across the land for miles. House was positioned back a little off main path and was on a hill so also had some privacy for cooking out and playing music, nice layout inside and out, and all enjoyed loved the scenery, quick trips to beach, and the daily visit of local horses. Turned out that some of the most memorable trips were just jumping in the 4X4 and exploring the sandy trails to find horses and explore the dunes directly behind the house! (Where paid tours go by frequently so we enjoyed taking advantage of that for FREE). Owners were great to deal with and worked with us on our dates, prompt on communication and process end to end ... no surprises on costs or fees and returned deposit in timely fashion, overall just incredible experience for all!! Thanks again!"

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.
