Recent Northern Coast & Outer Banks reviews

  • Home away from Home, Only Better!

    "My family of 7 had a great time at the Outer Banks, thanks in large part to this Rental Home. It was just as stated in the ad, only better! The outside shower and beach cart were added bonuses that came in very handy! The house was very clean and well appointed - not once did we need something that wasn't there (lucky to find out we needed to bring our own linens/towels prior to our visit). Proximity to stores, beach and local entertainment was great! Kids rented some bikes and were off and at 'em all week! I highly recommend this property and wish I was still there!"

  • Lovely Cottage

    "The cottage is so charming and well appointed--you must stay here! If you're familiar with Roanoke Island, as we are, you'll know that the cottage is in a primo location for walking to all the activities in Manteo: restaurants, shopping, Festival Park, etc. Our family of three (and our dogs) were quite happy here, and we appreciated the owner's help and guidance. We'll be back!"

  • The perfect escape!!!

    "I can not say enough good things about this Cottage. The moment we arrived I felt all the stress of my busy life disappear. The cottage is so beautiful, the attention to detail is seen everywhere. The boys loved the turtle bedroom they stayed in. My parents enjoyed the master on the top floor, since they are early risers it was nice for them to be able to walk around the kitchen and living room with out waking the rest of us downstairs. The decks gave you great views so don't let the distance from the beach fool you it is not far at all. It also was very easy to find just one block down from the beach. After spending the days at the beach we would shower in the very nice and enclosed outdoor shower and jump right into the pool and relax in the hot tub. I traveled with my husband ,two boys and my parents so there was plenty of room in fact one of the bedrooms we never used. The location is perfect very close to the beach and the firehouse(which has a little shop with ice, ice cream t-shirts. the boys loved going there to get ice cream). The cottage has everything I would need at home to cook and bbq, games, books, and WIFI. We rarely found ourselves using the tv because there is so much to do and look at. The bonus of this Cottage is seeing the wild horses, they came every day into the yard. The boys named them and every morning they would look for them. This was such a great experience to get to be so close to the horse. I was concerned about the tour jeeps driving around with all the people but we rarely saw them driving around the home so that was great. So are you looking for a great house that is close to the beach, with a pool and hot tub, traveling with less then 10 people, well maintained and very clean? Then this house is perfect for you. It was a home away from home for us, the boys wanted to stay for the whole summer. We will be planning another stay soon. The owner was very helpful and responded quickly to emails I sent. I never write reviews but this is truly a great find and you won't be disappointed!!!"

No matter what you paid to stay in their beautiful home you will leave feeling it was a great deal and worth every penny. I want to send a special thanks to Melissa for everything you did to make this trip for our family members a reality. We will always be grateful for the memories our family members have made for a lifetime. We hope for you and your family great happiness!!"

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.


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.
