Another great HomeAway property!

What a great experience - and very different from your traditional hotel stay. The yacht was beautiful and very well appointed. The owners were very responsive to all emails. I would highly recommend this experience!

Best Stay Ever

  • 5 of 5

I happened upon the Starry Banner while looking for a unique place to stay with my 15 year old granddaughter and her friend. We all were in love immediately upon arrival. The Starry Banner is beautiful in side and out. Majestic on the outside and cozy inside. Everything you could ever need is provided by these wonderful hosts Sharon and Bob. The master bedroom is beautifully appointed, and very comfortable...bed ...sleeping on a cloud. The girls loved Manteo, hanging out on upper bridge, sleeping in v birth and jumping off bridge (to Lost Colony). Kitty Hawk Kites provide additional activities for teenagers such as parasailing. Very competent captain and 1st mate. The ice maker is a great surprise during the hot days of July. We parked the car and walked everywhere in town. Just the best experience ever! Thank you Sharon and Bob for sharing this little taste like of heaven!

Don't miss out on this experience!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent! Our family truly loved this trip. We didn't think Manteo could be more charming and quaint, but The Starry Banner made us love it even more! The boat was clean, the surroundings were beautiful and everyone was so friendly. Sharon is a pleasure to talk to. We have already checked availability for next summer. If you have the opportunity to stay on the Starry Banner and like unique places to stay, then this is the place. When we left we felt happy, peaceful and blessed for the opportunity to stay in this lovely town! This is a family vacation we will remember forever!

Yacht Fun in Manteo

  • 5 of 5

"Yacht Owner" for a week! Experiencing the coast in a boat is amazing. The breeze off the water and the gently lapping of the waves lulled us into a peaceful state of mind while we were on the Starry Banner. Though there was a superbly appointed galley we spent most meals at local restaurants, fisheries and coffee houses. Manteo is a quaint town with amenities for everyone. The Starry Banner was gorgeous with a dreamy bed in the state room and comfortable cozy furniture in the salon. Sharon and Bob put delightful nautical touches throughout the burnished wood interior of the boat. We spent evenings on the upper deck sipping wine and watching the clouds and sunset make picturesque paintings. Sharon and Bob are gracious hosts and gave fabulous recommendations on dining and activities. We rented bikes and pedaled along the Roanoke Island bike path to the Wild Life Refuge, the Elizabethan Gardens, and around town. We loved the Starry Banner and experienced a maritime community that is generous, fun, and enjoys life to the fullest. Thanks Sharon and Bob for this opportunity.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

What more could you ask for? Friendly faces & beautiful setting @ every angle! The Starry Banner is very comfortable, & roomy, with every modern convenience you could hope for! The stateroom is cozy & the salon is spacious. The galley is practical and has everything you need to prepare your meal. We used the community grill located a few steps away on one occasion. The fly bridge is especially pleasant in the afternoons or evenings. The property manager & owners were always available to answer questions within a matter of minutes!

Would highly recommend the starry banner for you romantic getaway!!
