Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Excellent location, great property, Deckdaze is a dream!

    "I can only say great things about this property! Located off of a quiet neighborhood street in Avon, but an *excellent* location for both beach and soundside access and grocery and dining, this beach house has it all! This well-maintained property was just the perfect beach getaway for this family. The owner was beyond helpful with any questions or concerns that we had. This was my first visit to the Outer Banks, and we really enjoyed it and all that the immediate area had to offer. If I ever stay in Avon again, I would definitely choose Deckdaze again!"

  • Best kept secret on Ocracoke!

    "We were hesitant to write a review as we didn't want the best kept secret of Ocracoke out! Baby Duck is a fabulous, magical cottage. We have rented several VRBO properties and this is the best! The cottage is nicely furnished and decorated with a lot of attention to detail. We loved the screened-in porch and barbecue in the yard. The outdoor shower was also great! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for cooking and grilling. And a huge plus is that all the items were really good quality. Often when you get a rental vacation home kitchen items are inexpensive -- not at Baby Duck! The loft area was a wonderful get away to read a book and take a nap! The outdoor sink/fish cleaning area was a plus to hose off beach furniture! Thank you to the owners and the on site management company. They answered all our questions and were great to work with! Can't wait until we return!"

  • Perfect in January!

    "We stayed in January. What a fantastic experience. The home was perfect. Despite it being 48 degrees outside we played volleyball and some basketball in the driveway. With the bright sun it felt like 60! The kids had plenty to do. There is a TV in every room with an internet media player to watch Netfix if you are bored. There is a small gaming table on the bottom floor for the kids to play on and a large tv in case you want to bring your xbox or ps4 to plug into. The top floor has a very large library of very good DVDs. We loved the big fireplace on the top floor. Everyone seemed to gather around it at night. It turns on with the push of a button on the wall, very easy. The queen size bedrooms on the second floor were awesome. Just like the rst of the house, they were all very clean/spotless. The balcony views for each were also very nice. The third floor bedroom is also very nice. A really nice balcony view from there as well. Oh yeah, that bedroom has a very nice jetted tub. Whether it's 95 degrees in August or 48 degrees in January, this is a home you want to stay it if you have a large family. Jorge the owner is also one of the nicest people you'll ever speak to in your entire life. He checks on you to make sure your stay is comfortable and reminds you of the discounts you can get.. for example he told us about the bowling pass on the refrigerator which saved us some $$$ the second night we were there. He was ALWAYS accessible if we needed anything. Lets see.. the kitchen had everything you needed.. pots and pans, oven, microwave, you name it. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate our stay a 10.. on a scale of dealing with the owner, on a scale of 1-10 I would give Jorge an 11."

  • Super Vacation!!!!!

    "This was a wonderful vacation! The place was super clean, location was wonderful. There was room for everyone! The kitchen was super stocked, lacked for nothing. The views beyond wonderful! Super easy transition to rent. Our families from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky, and Colorado were able to all come together for a great time. The beach was very private. Would love to come back, discussing making this an annual vacation. The pool was enjoyed by all! Thank you for allowing us to use this home for a wonderful vacation."

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.
