Roanoke Island nightlife and events have the advantage of flourishing in the cozy community of Manteo. Locals are friendly, the venues fun and the events are full of energy and entertainment. You can find Roanoke Island events happening almost every night in the summer months, and they stay fairly constant during the other seasons as well. Roanoke Island nightlife centers on the arts. With plays, productions, book signings and plenty of live music, you’ll start to feel like you’re living in an artsy district of a big city. Check out The LC (The Lost Colony) to see a dramatic representation of the first settlers on Roanoke Island and how they mysteriously disappeared. On certain nights, you can even enjoy a dinner with the play’s characters. Several local theater troupes, including the high school drama department (their productions are fantastic!) filled with talented volunteers also put on popular productions throughout the year that make for a ready night of entertainment.

If you’re visiting the area toward the beginning of a month, you definitely don’t want to miss Manteo’s First Friday Festivals. Stroll through Manteo’s waterfront downtown as you peruse local vendors, galleries, artisans’ fares and listen to live music. What isn’t there to like?

And speaking of music, Roanoke Island events do an excellent job of bringing bands and solo musicians to restaurants, outdoor venues, festivals and marinas in Manteo and Wanchese. Some are big — Jefferson Starship, Led Zeppelin and Beatles cover bands, Journey! But this is also a great chance to listen to some local music — maybe you’ll even discover your new favorite genre! In fact, Manteo events can now boast a summertime festival of big name country singers in the Island Opry! Check out the link below to see where and how you can enjoy Manteo's nightlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good morning Brian!

We finally arrived this early this morning about 4am! My partner is a dentist and we had emergencies that came in late that we had to take care of before leaving. Then on hwy 64, I had fallen asleep, and forgot to tell her that we needed to fill up with gas before getting on 64, so we ran out of gas! 😂😂

Thankfully, we were able to get gas from the boat we were pulling and made it to a nearby gas station!

We parked the boat and trailer at the landing across from pirates cove.

After this horrible trip here, it was nice to arrive at your home to find it cozy for some much needed rest.

Wanted to update you on a couple things about your home. First off. It is lovely and will definitely get 5 stars. We have two dental practices and understand how reviews are very important. The location is perfect for what we were looking for for our trip this week.

But to update you and make sure you were aware. There were no dish rags or hand towels in the kitchen. I am running out to the store in a little while and will buy a few that I will leave here for future guests. Also, we found that it was very very clean.

Thank you thank you for sharing your home this weekend and responding so quickly to our needs when booking!

The place was clean and comfortable and I loved the non-stick cookware that was provided. The VCR came in handy and so did the dvd player. I also enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The answer is a definite YES if i would consider staying there again.

Great Times! We Can't Wait to Go Again :)

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Outer Banks and were not sure what to expect. Reading the reviews of others was incredibly helpful. We found this property to be exactly as it was described. Boy were we relieved! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left it was nothing but fun being in Manteo.

We enjoyed the shopping, restaurants, and local attractions. Check out the aquarium if it's a rainy day. We thought it was worth every penny. The outlet stores had many good bargains. We found the restaurants to be so good. We wanted to just all day, every day. Stripers was a definite favorite! We just couldn't get enough of their menu. Cafe Lachine was incredible. The french toast and eggs benedict with crab cake were just incredible. We could go on and on, honestly.

The condo was nice, clean, full of amenities, and quiet. We never heard another living soul while we were there. The beach is a short 10 minute drive and the pool was a quick 2-minute walk from the condo. We had a small issue with the grill and the owner was so nice to do everything in his power to get it working again. A new grill ended up having to be purchased, but it truly was fine since the owner really did the best he could to accomodate us and we were incredibly grateful. It's hard to find good customer service nowadays. We have nothing but good things to say about our experience. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. We are looking forward to going back again in 2017. If you are undecided about renting this property please know you won't be disappointed!

A Much Needed break.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well kept, the kitchen was particularly well equipped with mostly non stick pots and pans. The layouts of the rooms were comfy and inviting and the views of the development were good. The air conditioning worked great and when a storm left some damage outside (a tree had toppled over, near the property) maintenance came by quickly and had it removed. All in all a very pleasant stay and I would love to come back here next year.

Owner's Response: Good Day Michael... I just want to let my future guests know...this guest stayed in our condo for two weeks... If you stay in someones house for 2 weeks you have a pretty good idea of the owner, the rental process, the condo, the community and all of the amenities... That said, Thank You Michael for letting us host your Vacation and Thank You for Booking with us again next year ! Best Regards and Safe Travels ! Brian and Donna

Awesome Condo that is close to the Pool, Clubhouse, Marina and Restaurant

  • 5 of 5

Arrived for a Family week before the kids return to school and the condo actually is nicer than the pictures. The kitchen is well appointed and the BBQ grill on the deck was a nice feature for our evening cookout. Brian the owner, gave us a nice welcome email package with several restaurant suggestions that were wonderful. Stripers in Manteo, The Lone Cedar just over the causeway and Sam and Omie's on the way to the beach for breakfast were all outstanding. This condo is a short drive to the beach and found Jennette's Pier fun to do some fishing. We enjoyed our stay and recommend the condo to families with children because of its location to the playground and the clubhouse for Kids Camp... Kids Camp is a daily experience for children and gave the adults some free time to enjoy a few hours to ourselves. We have booked this unit again next year and look forward to enjoying another OBX vacation. Thank you again.

Once again 5 star rental from these wonderful owners! This is the second property we have stayed at that they own. So clean and big. The deck is amazing as well! Bars and great food within the community. We are beach goers so we know a great rental when we see one. Already planning next summer with these owners rentals!!!
