  • Portsmouth view

    "We stayed here in November for a long weekend. I've been coming to Ocracoke for around 10 to 12 years and this is one of the nicest homes I've stayed in. The view from the deck is awesome, and the home is beautiful."

  • A great place to stay

    "This very well-designed summer home was nicely furnished and appointed and very well-equipped in all regards, including the kitchen and its appliances, the clothes washer and dryer, the two bathrooms, dvd player and TVs, as well as the outdoor ground floor shower and fish cleaning station, which unfortunately we never had occasion to use. The screened porch provided an additional nice space for fresh air during some colossally inclement weather. The location is superb, being only a short walk from the ocean beach, and an easy walk from a bike rental shop, an ice cream shop, a kind of general store, the US Post Office, a delicatessen, and a fish store that was closed due to the lateness of the season during our visit. The owners were extremely pleasant and helpful. We had a great time, despite some wild, windy, and occasionally very wet weather that stirred the ocean into a somewhat turbulent and menacing state. Although we did not swim in the ocean, we did a lot of barefoot walking in and out of the ocean surf at numerous places along the National Seashore, rode bikes down to the Salvo sound-side park and beach, and enjoyed numerous longer trips to the Pea Island refuge, different lighthouses, the Wright Brothers museum to the north, and to the Weather Station and Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum in Hatteras Village. From our explorations from Hatteras Village to the Kill Devil Hills, we concluded that this VRBO home was for us in the very best location on the Outer Banks. We would happily recommend this VRBO to anyone."

  • Good place, good times :)

    "We arrived to a very clean condo overlooking Pamlico Sound. Very comfortable for our group of 4 adults and 1 child. Everything we needed was there although we did have to buy bathroom soap and extra bathroom tissue. The owner was very fast in replying to our inquires and overall very friendly to deal with. The condo was very quiet but we did hear the upstairs neighbours from time to time. The wifi was very fast and the AC worked flawlessly during the hot humid August. This is one of the few places where you can book for less than a week. We would definitely stay here again the next time we find ourselves in outer banks."

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.
