  • What a great place!

    "We had a great family vacation here. House, furnishings, beach access, sand toys, beach chairs, grill - games - you name it! We will return! We had to adjust the schedule a little but Connie was a pleasure to make it right."

  • 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!"

  • Very pleased!

    "It was our first visit to the Outer Banks and we really enjoyed it! The Shelter is clean, neat and exactly like the pictures. You are a short walk to the beach and some small shops and grocery mart. If you want relaxtion and beach time, it's perfect. We had good food at all of the restaurants we visited."

  • Great for families, so close to the beach.

    "This unit was clean, comfortable, quiet, and right there on the beach. The beach is this area was not very busy, so there was plenty of room for us to spread out. The unit is on the main street through town, so it is convenient to go to attractions, boardwalks, or shops. The town is a gem, too. The unit has a number of sand toys for the kids, along with some beach chairs. We went to the aquarium, fort, state park, and the battleship in Wilmington. We had no issues with the condo. The upper balcony is great for relaxing and watching the sea. I might suggest bringing some dark curtains if you don't want your small kids to wake up with the sun each day."

Coastal Travel Tips

Getting to North Carolina’s Spectacular Coast

With over 300 miles of coastline, North Carolina Coast vacation properties are all perfect for visitors looking for a great vacation. While summer is the tourist season here, the weather makes it an ideal area for early vacations in spring. April and May are great times to avoid the crowds but still enjoy good weather. Late in the season, September and October, are also good times to stay in North Carolina Coast vacation rentals.

Once visitors decide which part of this beautiful area to base their vacation, getting here will be a breeze. Heading to the Outer Banks, visitors may choose to fly to Raleigh-Durham or Norfolk International and drive down to the coast. There are also smaller regional airports to head further down the coast. Boat owners will be delighted with the option of over 400 marinas interspersed around the region and the Intracoastal Waterway gives access to a variety of destinations, such as Morehead City, Beaufort and Emerald Isle.

The main road route through Outer Banks is Route 12 and highways to other areas are US 158 to Kitty Hawk and Nags Head or Interstate 40 from Wilmington. US Highway 17 takes visitors from Wilmington to New Bern.

More Than Just a Beach-Lover’s Paradise

It may be tempting to spend each and every long, glorious day just chilling out on the beach or taking part in the many water-based delights of the area but there are some great day trips to be had. The USS North Carolina Battleship memorial offers the chance to tour a ship that took part in every major naval battle in the Pacific in World War II. To learn more about the Civil War, visit Moore’s Creek National Battlefield. Fans of Michael Jordan will find his exhibit at the Cape Fear Museum of History and Science a fascinating insight into this popular basketball player. The museum also features a 1.5-million-year-old giant sloth discovered locally.

Combine an evening stroll with something a little more adventurous by taking a ghost tour of haunted Wilmington, or try a haunted pub crawl. The area covered by the Cape Lookout National Seashore includes the abandoned Portsmouth Village. Settled in the mid-1700s, this village was inhabited until the early 1970s when the last two residents left. Today, it is open to the public to tour. A favorite for visitors is to head to Roanoke Island, site of Sir Walter Raleigh’s attempt to establish an English colony. The original inhabitants were left with provisions; when new provisions arrived three years later, the inhabitants had disappeared. Their fate remains a mystery to this day and visitors today can visit as archaeologists and historians work to solve this long-standing puzzle.

Don’t Leave Without Sampling the Seafood

Visitors to North Carolina Coast lodging should not miss the opportunity to sample the delights of the variety of fresh seafood offered by local restaurants. There is a fabulous selection of tuna, oysters, shrimp, grouper and the best clam chowder around.

What Makes North Carolina Lodging Special

With an array of properties to suit any size of family or group of friends, the toughest choice is deciding which area best suits your individual desires. Whether it is a lively resort such as Wilmington or Nags Head or one of the quiet, North Carolina vacation properties scattered along the coast, you will find one perfect for you. These properties are well-equipped and welcoming, with many happy to include your four-legged family member too! Spacious homes where visitors can travel back from the sandy beach without a care in the world abound here, and there is plenty of room to dry bathing suits and towels.
