  • GREAT FOR FIRST TIME VACATIONERS

    "This home is beautiful, by far the most nicest house I have ever seen. As others have said, the pantry is well stocked, there are all types of pots and pans for your use. We lacked for nothing. There is also a washer and dryer in this home. Food Lion is just down the road for groceries and there is a Dollar Store in the same plaza. The Ocean is just down the road over the dunes, the kids were able to go swimming, fishing and crabbing. We also went to the Avon Pier which was amazing. This was my family's first vacation to the Outer Banks and we loved it, we really enjoyed ourselves. Claire was always just a call away if we needed her."

    "Wow is all I can say! We had an amazing time at Buck's Sound House in September of 2014! Our trip organizer booked it for the kiteboarding, but we all had an absolute blast here! The house is the most amazing home I have stayed in, Jayne was wonderful, we ate at great restaurants, Pop's, Orange Blossum, Hatteras Light was great, Ocracoke was so fun, so was Rodanthe and cute restaurant in Waves on left where we had fish tacos, Atlantic Coast Cafe, very nice. Everyone we met on the island, from staff to locals at the church we attended were so welcoming. I could have hung out on the beautiful porch at Buck's Sound House the whole week and been happy. I love VRBO and Buck's Sound House! Cannot wait to go back next year!"

  • Great Location.

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was clean. The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great Location. Great Beach. But left something to be desired. The house was in a great location, right between the sound and the ocean, and the layout and amenities worked well for our family. However, we were disappointed with the level of cleanliness (or lack of) on arrival. We expected more for the price point."

  • Low-Key, Great Location

    "We've stayed in fancy Duck houses and a couple that were below our standards. This house is just right. Really comfortable, well maintained, nicely equipped kitchen, great spa with pleasant outdoor seating. The Colony By the Sea pool - right by the beach, with bathrooms - is a great arrangement for a family. The bedrooms downstairs are small, but if your main purpose - like ours - was to be either outside or together in the common areas, that's a minor consideration. Janet the owner is friendly and helpful."

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.
