  • Fishing vacation

    "When we opened the door to this well appointed house we were totally amazed. It was more than what we expected. Very roomy with spectacular views from every level. This is the best place we have ever stayed in. Thanks so much, Dan for allowing us to rent your wonderful home."

  • Unforgettable Valentine Getaway

    "I am writing the review for this place from the comforts of it's living room. I first made contact with Stephanie a few weeks ago inquiring about renting the place for a surprise Valentines getaway for my wife. I basically relied on the perfect 5 star reviews left on this website to make sure I would come out of this "looking like the man." I have gotten to where I rely on reviews for various products. They give a honest first hand account of satisfaction. Hardly ever do you see any product with perfect 5 stars and wonderful testimonies. I am here to tell you that my wife says I am the man! She was very impressed with the choice I had made. So I call it a success. From the first contact I had with Stephanie (and every other up to now) she was very professional and friendly. You could just tell she wanted this to be as special for my wife as I did. This place is all it is advertised be and then some. The pictures don't do it justice. You don't get the feeling you are in a vacation rental. You get the feeling you are at home. I can tell the owner takes great pride in the appearance both inside and out. Cleanliness is an understatement. Thank you Stephanie for sharing your place with us for a memorable Valentine getaway. I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out."

  • Best of the Best!

    "Hello, my name is Vince and I am currently on my last night in your wonderful beach house, Sounds Terrific! Since I was a baby my parents brought me to the Outer Banks twice a year. We started out camping in a pop up at Pea Island Resort before it became what it is named now. Eventually we outgrew that and my parents began renting homes from Surf or Sound. These were the greatest memories of my childhood, despite all of the other places my parents took me around the country. When I became an adult with a family of my own I continued to come out here and rent homes from Surf or Sound twice a year. Now that I am nearly 37 and have teenagers of my own this is still every bit of my heaven as it was when I was a young child. I come once a year with my family and once a year with other couples that have never gotten to experience the Outer Banks. We are on the latter of two trips currently, but planning a Thanksgiving family trip for this November. I have stayed in so many of the homes but this is the first time I have ever stayed sound side. I have to say out of all the homes that I have stayed in your home is the best one yet hands down. It is beautiful, comfy, and has everything you could need and more. For the first time I am not interested in staying at another home and cannot wait to come back and stay here again!"

  • Fabulous getaway!

    "If your looking for a clean, comfortable, and close to shops etc., this is the rental for you! Not to mention the very ease of dealing with the owner, Suzanne. If all the vrbo rentals could be this clean we wouldn't have to hope that future rentals at other places are clean. A+, for the house keeper. I would Definitely like to rent this house and deal with Suzanne again."

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.
