We celebrated our 30th anniversary on the StarryBanner and enjoyed it thoroughly!! Our 12 year old golden retriever also joined us ... very easy on and off. Loved the little town of Manteo , walkway along the marina , and fabulous sunrises!!! The Starry Banner was very comfortable and the owner was incredibly attentive to all our needs!! We highly recommend!!!
There’s no better way/location for immersing yourself into the history of Roanoke Island than a stay at the Starry Banner. If other parts of Dare Co are on your to do list, then you only have but a quick drive over one bridge. When your ready to relax, there’s enough space either below or above deck to stretch out & bask in the tranquil downtown waterfront. This was our 2nd stay aboard the yacht w/our 4-legged fur-baby & it’s impeccably maintained. The owner Sharon is warm, inviting, open & helpful to any needs that may arise. Thank you for your generosity & we look forward to staying here again. The Morrisons
The BEST stay ever!
Staying on the Starry Banner is a real treat. Nothing has been overlooked and the entire experience from reservation to checkout was perfect! Sharon is a delight to work with and very caring and thoughtful. We can not wait to return for another trip to Manteo and this sweet spot! Thank You so much!!!
This was my first experience of sleeping on a boat—like a tree house rocking in the water!
Well appointed, clean, pretty, and comfortable. The owner was immediately accessible both electronically and in person for help with any issues or questions. Comfortable bed and stateroom, colorful neighbors, excellent location! Manteo is a gem. Extra stars for being pet friendly. Our dog was initially unsure but adapted to getting off and on the boat eventually. People are very friendly around boats— what an experience!
This is the C-Suite of Class! STAY on THE STARRY BANNER!! :-)
We have just returned home from the Outer Banks the last week in July. When we came home and our friends and family asked us "how was your vacation" my husband and I Steve both could only say "it was one of the best vacations we have been on" and we contribute this to accommodations and the hospitality we received during our time on The Starry Banner. Sharon from beginning to end was amazing, and one call away if we needed anything. The neighbors on the dock were warm, welcoming and helpful if need anything as well. We had a lot of rain during our week but thanks to our new dock friends(that we plan to continue to keep in touch with...)and the comfort and convenience of the yacht and all of the special touches Sharon has added, we didn't care that it rained.! Manteo has everything to offer right in walking distance, around each and every corner you will find something new and exciting to uncover during your stay on the Outer Banks. I am going to recommend The Starry Banner to my friends and family; and no kidding- my husband and I are so looking forward to going back we have already made our reservations in November this year to return and celebrate our anniversary. It's that special of place- 5 stars really isn't enough.
