  • The best family vacation ever

    "My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Fabulous Nags Head Ocean View Home....My Niece was gtetting married right down the beach road at Jennettes Fishing Pier and it was in close proximity to our cottage, which was helpful to go and come to take care of last minite details on the day of her wedding. The beach is a short walk away and the home was as pictured on the website. Thanks to the owners who made it all possible. After such a delightful stay, we might make it a annual tradition. Thank you"

  • great week in the Outer Banks!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this lovely home for a fall family vacation. It was immaculate and welcoming. The kitchen is well stocked and the bedrooms are all very comfy. Lots of space for time together and personal space as well---always a bonus when you have a large group. We really appreciated the beach chairs,umbrella, etc. There is also a great selection of board games, video choices and magazines for the beach. Loved trekking over to the sound to enjoy evening sunsets and then returning "home" for dinner and a relaxing dip in the hot tub to gaze at the stars. All the delightful comforts of a beach home. The owners were easy to work with and provided lots of helpful information. We would highly recommend this property. And it will stay on our list of vacation home choices. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!"

  • Great Weekend Getaway!

    "Just spent a great weekend at Freebird! The house was fantastic, very clean and modern décor! The hot tub was a twice a day event and the walk to the beach was easy even for an 8 year old! The owner was very helpful helping me get my last minute weekend organized! I am hoping to get down again this winter!"

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.
