  • What a FUN house!

    "We stayed in "The Big House" for a family reunion; my wife and I, and our 2 daughters and sons-in-law. We had a great time. We all really loved the house, and especially enjoyed the "scenic" walk from the driveway. Every time we made that walk, we discovered something new! We also loved having our own "disco", by turning off all the lights, except the ones on the disco balls! Love the screened in porch with the hammock and the swing; there was always a nice breeze there. View from the upper balcony overlooking the sound is spectacular, especially at sunset. We had a great time exploring the Outer Banks, as well. Following are must do's (In no particular order): Get an ugly at the Orange Blossom Cafe in Buxton Take an nap in the hammock in the screened in porch Have dinner at Cafe Pamlico (at the Inn) in Buxton Go kayaking/SUP/sailing/wave running at Hatteras Watersports in Salvo (so much cheaper than anywhere else, and a nice property on the sound) Play golf at Nags Head Golf Links (Bring plenty of golf balls!) Use the supplied beach umbrella/beach chairs early and often (at the beach!) Have dinner while watching the sunset from the upper balcony Take the ferry and spend a day on Ocracoke. Tour a lighthouse (the one in Buxton is the tallest; it's like walking up 12 stories) Eat at Rustys in Buxton Eat at Ketch 55 in Avon Get a pizza from Gidgets in Avon Get ice cream at Cup and Cone in Avon (you can probably get one to share for two or three!) Walk on the beach at night, and see LOTS of sand crabs and stars And, if you get bored, try to figure out what the 40+ light switches in the main room do!"

  • 1st timers in OBX

    "This was our first time to the OBX. Been wanting to come for years and finally did. The drive down the beach to the house was beautiful but just a little bit far (15 miles) to be exact lol but well worth it. There were 9 of us and the house was plenty big enough for all of us. The crows nest was awesome any time of the day. Plenty of kitchenware, cupboard and counter space for everything. I was diagnosed with throat cancer on my bday (dec 2 2013) then my mother-in-law passed away 1 week before Xmas. So thanks to my wonderful husband for suggesting OBX for a well over due well deserved vacation. We will definitely be back, probably next year, for another fun filled vacation. Thank you to the people at Karichele Realty for all of your help"

  • 10 Stars

    "Words cannot even begin to describe the amazing week we enjoyed at Hatteras Beach House. Planning a trip in October can always be hit or miss, since the weather can be so unpredictable, but we were lucky to have had perfect weather all week, with highs in the mid to upper 70's and lows in the upper 60's to low 70's. Falling asleep every night to the sound of the waves crashing gave me the best sleep I've had in months. Everyone in our family had the same peaceful sleeping experience listening to the waves as we fell asleep on the comfortable beds in bedrooms that are all oceanfront. The house was extremely clean, with furnishings that made you really feel at home. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare home cooked meals that were served on the beautiful dining room table looking out at the ocean. We used the grill one night for lobster and shrimp, which let us have a wonderful seafood meal with better scenery than any restaurant. The decks provided ample room for everyone to sit outside on the deck chairs and watch the wind surfers and beach walkers. We walked the beach daily and took hundreds of pictures of the beautiful sunrises and ocean waves. I really can't say enough about this beautiful home and it's location. The elevator was extremely convenient to transport our groceries and luggage. The pantry provided a good space for all of our non-perishable items and the refrigerator and wine cooler on the first floor provided enough room for all of our cold items and drinks. We also enjoyed playing a game of pool and using the theater room to watch Sunday football. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly and we will definitely be returning to Hatteras Beach House in the future. Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to enjoy your home and experiencing one of the most enjoyable vacations we've had in a very long time."

  • Wonderful Vacation

    "My family and I recently stayed at " Monumental View" for a Mini vacation. Kathy was extremely pleasant and easy to work with. We even had last minute changes of plans and she worked with us to make this a smooth transition. We would highly recommend staying here to friends and family and look forward to many more trips to Kill Devil.The house is very inviting and nicely furnished. Our teens loved the pool table! The house is located on a quiet street without a lot of through traffic so the kids could play outside. We were able to walk to many of our souvenir destinations and also a couple trips to conveniently located Dairy Queen (right across the street). The view from the top deck is amazing. The Wright Brother's monument is beautiful a night. We look forward to vacationing here again in 2015!"

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.
