  • Sand Mix

    "My family just got back from spending some quality time at this lovely home. This was our second stay at this home and we will be going back again. Why? Because it is a great house, wonderful location and the owners are very nice and helpful. They go out of their way to insure you have everything you need for a great vacation. Views are great from every window in the house ,you won't be disappointed. The horses that stroll by are so beautiful and always a thrill to see them by the ocean as well."

  • Great Club

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We enjoyed the club facilities and the neighborhood was great for walking, biking, the trolleys were awesome too. It was central to the shopping centers, the light house and the park. The light fixture by the pool was not working so we didn't enjoy the backyard as much as we would have but the pool and the hot tub were great as well. we had a view of the ocean from the kitchen which was a great addition to our inhouse dining experience. Thank you! we will surely come back to this community."

  • Perfect cozy cottage!

    "My parents, husband, and one year old daughter stayed here for a week, and it was a wonderful experience! The house was the perfect size for our small group and really felt like a home away from home! It was well stocked with kitchen essentials, and the pool and hot tub were immaculately clean and such a wonderful amenity to have! There is one bedroom downstairs, which was perfect for my aging parents to not have to attempt the climb up the small spiral staircase, but you can also reach the upstairs using an external staircase from the back deck. Our daughter had no problem avoiding the stairs, but more adventurous little ones should be monitored, as the staircase could be a hazard. The beach is a comfortable walk away, but be warned that there is a large dune to climb over--it took my mother a bit longer with her trick knee to join us at the beach! The house is also in walking distance of a small deli/grocery store, which was very convenient. All in all a wonderful stay, and I would not hesitate to recommend it!"

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.
