Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Wish we were there now!

    "Pool, hot tub, close to the beach--who could ask for anything more! Everything was clean, the house was warm and inviting, and we couldn't think of anything we were lacking. The Sunday to Sunday week is a must! We'll never go back to Saturday again. The kids had their own place to hang out up in the loft, and got to use the pool whenever they wanted. Fridge by the pool along with plenty of lounge chairs (did I mention the hot tub?), and I was in my glory. The bikes, beach cart, pool toys, and cooler were all put to good use. All the little things you don't normally think about--they've got it covered. We're already planning next year!"

  • Moontree Cottage

    "This was my family's first trip to the OBX region and it was really an enjoyable experience staying at MoonTree. The sunsets from the decks are beautiful. The Cottage is well equipped and maintained, and the kitchen has everything you'll need for breakfast through lunch and dinner. The beach is across Duck road but there's a parking area that you have access to and the walk is very short. Everyone in the Tuckahoe community could not have been nicer. If you walk into Duck it's less than a mile and my wife and I made that our walk of the day. A lot to see in the town of Duck so the location of the cottage was great for that. All in all, we were really pleased."

  • Amazing Wedding - Scott and Elena McGrew

    "We spent four nights with our closest friends and family in this beautiful property. We wanted to have a very small wedding at the beach followed by a barbecue in the house. We were twelve people in total and there was enough space for everyone both in terms of sleeping and dining.The property was in excellent condition. The house is beautifully decorated. We loved the expansive decks and the outdoor furniture was in perfect condition. The view from the house is really nice, especially if you manage to wake up early enough and catch the sunrise. The beach was less than a couple of minutes away! The water was warm and the weather was gorgeous even in the end of September! There were not many people vacationing at the time, which gave us privacy for our beach ceremony. The house is in better condition than what it is shown in the photos! Every room was clean and nicely decorated. Amenities were sufficient to accommodate our group of twelve. The internet was a bit slow, especially in the downstairs bedrooms, but since we didn't really need to stay connected for these days, it was not an issue. We had a lot of fun with the boogie boards and bikes that were available at the house. There were also beach umbrellas and chairs, which made our beach time even more pleasant and relaxing. The key-less entry was another benefit, since our guests arrived at different times. We are very grateful to the owner, who let us rent the property and was very helpful! Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home! We had a great time and a perfect wedding! We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a cozy accommodation just minutes away from the ocean, especially for the people who enjoy the tranquility of a September vacation!"

  • New Experiences

    "Our first time to the Outer Banks, and "Whale-N-Jennings" was a great place to stay. The cottage was comfortable, clean, and perfect for small families or couples with pet(s). Centrally located and only steps away for the beach/ocean! We'll definitely return to the OBX 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.


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.
