  • Thanksgiving Week 2014

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was the 2nd year in a row we rented this home for the Thanksgiving week. House was a good size for our family. The only issue we had was that for the 2nd year in a row, one of the dishwashers was broken. The rental company sent a maintenance person right away but, of course, a part needed to be ordered so it never got fixed during our stay. I looked on the website to rent the house again for 2015 Thanksgiving week and saw that the price had gone up over 10%! I think that is way too much to raise a rent so we will look elsewhere for 2015."

  • Great value for money. Close to beach.

    "We stayed in Sea-esta with three other small families and overall enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately, out of the four days we stayed the pool was only warm enough for one day of swim due to weather conditions being too chilly however, the hot tub more than made up for it. The rooms are tight for adding air mattresses for children on the floor. Our children ended up having to share a twin mattress (which was provided). The children enjoyed the bottom level, playing pool, games and hanging out on the deck balcony hammock. The grown ups took advantage of the top level living room where we could retreat away from excitable kids. There is enough space to feel like you aren't over crowded which is nice, especially when travelling with a larger group. The beach is a short walking distance away and the beach wheelie cart provided was super helpful in toting items back and forth. The owner is very attentive and communicates well, which is appreciated. We would probably choose a house directly on the beach next time however, for the price this one was definitely worth it. Thanks again for an enjoyable stay!"

  • Fantastic Property in an Incredible Location

    "House had outstanding amenities that are perfectly suited for a fun and relaxing time in OBX. The location is absolutely ideal - near the beach and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and grocery store. Plenty of outdoor living space - great views - and a turnkey experience. I plan to be back again next year!"

  • Sweet!!

    "Lovely house with all the amenities we expected. Especially loved the outdoor shower and comfortable front porch. Master bedroom was to die for!! Location is great with easy bike ride to town or to get supplies. Car is really not necessary except to get to farther beach accesses. We originally planned to house 7 people but gratefully 2 dropped out as it would not have been very comfortable with all. Would not recommend 7 unless all are very understanding and on same schedule. A must eat is the 'Freto Taco' that can be had from the cart on the main drag. A bit unusual but really good. Remember to bring/pick-up necessities like we did not i.e. TP, soap, dish/cloths soap, etc. (Rookies we were). We all would definitely return especially at this time of year as the town was so quiet."

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.
