Outer Banks Vacation Rentals

Sep 14, 2008
In addition to miles of coastline, one-of-a kind geographic features, and historical charm, the Outer Banks is the ideal place to find a unique and accommodating vacation rental. As you plan your trip to North Carolina's barrier islands, take a little time to find the perfect home away from home.

Whether the southern communities on Ocracoke Island appeal to you or you prefer to stay close to the more popular communities of Brodie Island, there is a vacation rental that has everything you need for a memorable trip. Most come with basic features like a washer and dryer, a fully-stocked kitchen, and an expansive deck where you can enjoy a relaxing lunch in the stunning Outer Banks surroundings. The extras, however, are what make your rental unique and set it miles apart from the cookie cutter hotels that lack the amenities and convenience of a vacation home rental.

The advantage to a vacation rental in the Outer Banks is the freedom it provides the family, to say nothing of added amenities one won't find in a simple motel. Many of the vacation rentals in the area are equipped with high-end furnishings and large bedrooms. A family of four or five will be able to stay more comfortably in a rental, with each child enjoying a private room while the parents may enjoy their own solitude. Taking into consideration that pets are part of the family, a check with an area rental agent will determine which vacation homes allow dogs and cats to stay on premises.

Behind the house, a pebbled path will lead you to a day filled with all the beach activities you can imagine. Outdoor showers will keep sand from reaching inside, and the screened porch will make the perfect setting for a home-cooked meal. There are lots of activities in the Outer Banks, such as museums, sailing tours, and wildlife refuges, and they will likely draw you to the outside world for much of the day. Don't be surprised, however, if you end up stealing a couple of hours away from the outdoors, relaxing in a comfy chair with a book on your lap. This is your vacation, after all, so spend it as you please.

For a different view, try heading south. You'll still have all the opportunities of the beach and access to museums and notable sights if you reserve a cottage in Kill Devil Hills or Nag's Head. There are large properties here as well, but if you're seeking something more modest in terms of price or size, you won't be disappointed.

Private pools and hottubs are other amenities one will not find in a motel. In a vacation rental, one can relax after a long day of sightseeing in relative privacy. For a quiet vacation, it is recommended to rent a home where private beach access is available, away from the populous areas of the shore. Currituck County and Duck offer the most isolation, away from the larger towns of Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills, yet are close enough to drive to for a day of attractions and shopping. VisitCurrituck.com, the official site of Currituck Outer Banks tourism, offers an extensive listing of area real estate agents who handle vacation rentals. Here you can research what you need to enjoy your Outer Banks vacation.
