Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks property reviews

  • Relaxing with our pups at Coconut Cove!

    "My husband and I brought our two senior labs on vacation and I must say that we had an incredible time. The house was so beautiful and the Outer Banks is so clean quite and just a great area. We saw wild horses and went down to the beach in corrolla. Everything is so close. The house was so spacious and our dogs sure did love exploring throughout the neighborhood and down on the beach. It was pretty cool while we were there but that did not stop my husband from getting in the hot tub every night. We have rented homes in the past and must say this was one of the best homes we have ever stayed in and the rental company was so pleasant to deal with and a nice touch was the beach bag and coffee beans. Overall we were very impressed with our stay and will we will recomend to others and we will definetly go back to stay. Thank you so much to the family that opened there beautiful house up to us and we honestly can say we did not want to go home."

  • Sleeping with the Fishes was a great place to stay!

    "We loved staying at Sleeping with the Fishes! Plenty of living space for our extended family. The grandchildren liked sleeping in the bunk room, and I liked reading in the screened porch. We were close to the beach, the lake and shopping. We were very comfortable during our stay. On a return visit I would consider bringing a large electric frying pan. Cooking breakfast for a large group was challenging, but I noted in a previous review that the owner plans to buy some new pans. It was a wonderful vacation. I would love to return to Sleeping with the Fishes!"

  • The Hodges Family

    "We celebrated my brother-in-laws 40th birthday at this beautiful home. We are completely spoiled with this location on the outer banks. The house was perfect with everything we needed. The owners were very attentive to any questions I had for them. The house was perfectly located to the beach in walking distance which was a good time for the family to talk and laugh on the way. Will never forget the memories we made and can't wait to return."

  • Amazing

    "House was amazing. Owner was great getting back to us when we had minor issue with freezer. Plenty of space. Three couples went and plenty of space of privacy. Short walk to beach. Corn holes boards were great and pool table got used a lot! Hot tub was great after long days at beach! About 15 min from food loin. And about 40 min from major town kitty hawk. Just a dream vacation! One day went out to oracoke island! Saw all the lighthouses! So beautiful!!!!! Outdoor shower had a lot of privacy!!!"

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.
