Location

The village of Rodanthe, with it's beautiful beaches and 'laid back' atmosphere, is centrally located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. If you just want to relax, read a book and enjoy uncrowded beaches, Rodanthe is the place to be. There is great fishing by boat, from the surf or at the pier located 1/2 mile from Castle by the Sea. Rodanthe Watersports offers bike rentals, kayaks and jet ski's for rent. Rodanthe is a kiteboarding and windsurfing paradise. If you aren't experienced and want to learn the watersports, lessons are available in the area. We do have a variety of restaurants and shops in Rodanthe.

25 miles south, in Buxton, sits the tallest lighthouse in North America. Cape Hatteras lighthouse is open to climbing if you are up to the challenge. The view is well worth the trip to the top.

Another 15 minutes further south you will arrive at the free ferry to Ocracoke Island. It is the home of the oldest lighthouse still in operation. Visit the quaint village of Ocracoke and learn the history of pirates including the famous Black Beard himself.

There are many shops, restaurants, and other things to do along the way.

Traveling north from Rodanthe you will cross the bridge at Oregon Inlet with beautiful views of the ocean and sound. If looking for an off shore charter Oregon Inlet is the place to stop. You can stop by in the afternoon and watch the charter boats unload the catches of the day. If looking for a soundside charter we can refer you to someone locally.

Five minutes further, north, is the Bodie Island Lighthouse with its rich history.

When you get to the stoplight straight ahead is Nags Head or left on 64 takes you to Manteo.

In Manteo you can see the longest running outdoor drama, The Lost Colony. Manteo is the homeport of the Elizabeth II which is a full size replica of the first English ship to visit the new world. Don't forget to visit the Aquarium. Its full of information and fun for kids. Elizabethian Gardens is located beside the lost colony and well worth a visit for its beauty and splendor. Take a walk through the streets of Manteo and visit the waterfront and many shops and restaurants.

On your way into Nags Head you can stop by Jockey's Ridge, the tallest sand dune on the East Coast and watch the hang gliders or if your brave enough take a lesson and join in.

Further north into Kill Devil Hills is the Wright Brothers Memorial. A tribute to America's first heavier than air flight. It has a large and very interesting museum. Along the way you will see putt putt courses, golf courses and a movie theatre.

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Many generations have passed since the first O'Neal was shipwrecked on Hatteras Island. The O'Neals once owned a large strip of land, in Rodanthe, that went from ocean to sound. Over time the land was divided up and passed down from one generation to another. With each generation the lots were getting smaller, and some were sold outside of the family. Our goal was to try and save as much family land as we could. We bought the Sea Sound Motel, a small 11 room, family run motel in 1997. It is located on Sea Sound Road. It was part of the original O'Neal property. The opportunity to buy the lot that the Castle sits on came up and we were excited. How we got the name, Castle by the Sea. We briefly owned a hotel in the mountains of North Carolina called the Castle Hotel. The buildings were actually built like castles. When we sold it, much to our surprise, the new owners tore it down. One day we were talking about the Castle Hotel and remembering the fun times there with our grandsons. When we said we were sad we sold it one of our grandsons spoke up and said build a castle in Rodanthe. After looking at many house plans, we decided the victorian house was the most similar house to a castle. The name came easy. CASTLE BY THE SEA
