  • Slice of Salvo Heaven

    "My family very much enjoyed our stay. The home is on a quiet street with easy access to what feels like a private beach. Unfortunately for us our stay was cut short due to Hurricane Aurthor, it was however very painless due to great communication by the owner in keeping us updated as to when we would be able to arrive at the house. Other than loosing the ability to use the yard due do some standing water you could not tell that a hurricane had just passed through, the owner did a great job cleaning up. I would definitely recommend a stay at this property to anyone looking for that quiet getaway or a place where your kids can play safely."

  • Comfy beds clean house

    "We loved staying at the sandmann this October 2014. We were in town for a wedding and the house was beautiful, clean, and comfortable. It had all the amenities needed (except for an iron but most people don't need one when at the beach-- we did for wedding attire). It is a lovely place and the owner was easy to communicate with and very accessible. I can't wait to return again! I have been vacationing in OBX since I was a child, and it's rare to find a small house in such modern and great condition that close to the ocean! Most oceanfront rentals that are remodeled and updated are very large! It's great to be able to get a place for only a couple families right on the ocean without having to rent a mansion at high rates! Recommend this place to all!"

  • Quiet and Clean

    "We've been vacationing at the beach for decades and this beach home has proven to be one of the most satisfying we've encountered. It's clean, just the right size with all amenities you could wish for. It has large decks providing incredible views and is in a quiet and relaxing section of Corova that's close to the beach but without many neighbors. This home is an all around great beach house that allowed us to thoroughly enjoy a much needed vacation."

  • Amazing House!

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a great time in the Outer Banks and loved our vacation home. The only thing I would suggest is making the entertainment system a little more user friendly - we had to play around before we could get the tv to work, and never did figure out how to change the radio station or hook up an ipod. But that was a minor drawback and we still loved our stay!"

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.
