Home Away From Home 

One of the things that makes the Outer Banks of North Carolina such a special place is the abundance of outstanding vacation rental homes. While we celebrate our other lodging options, like hotelsmotelscottage courtsbed & breakfasts and campgrounds, vacation rental homes give our guests the ability to take what they love about being home and move that experience to the shores of one of America’s top beaches. You can drive to the Outer Banks (and enjoy falling gas prices), go straight to the house, use your keyless entry code and start vacationing. It’s that simple. No people to interact with, no crowded elevators, just you, your travel party, and more than a 100-miles of uncrowded, outstanding beach. Cook meals in, if you prefer, or venture out to the hundreds of individually owned restaurants. Take a windshield tour of iconic Highway 12, ride a ferry, check out five local lighthouses, or stop by one of three National Park Service sites. You’ll find our small towns and villages have a lot to offer and might just be the perfect antidote to city life -- open spaces and endless possibilities.

Life on the Edge

The OBX is a 130-mile stretch of barrier islands just off the coast of North Carolina. Made up of quaint towns and sleepy fishing villages, each wonderfully weather worn to a varying degree. Even spanning hundreds of years and despite millions of visitors, each town retains its own individual character
