Luxurious Homes for Rent in the Outer Banks

The Outer Banks is a hot vacation spot because of the great climate, prime beaches, and family-friendly activities. Many of the properties in this area are large enough to accommodate family reunions and large groups of friends. You can easily find accommodations that come with pools, hot tubs and even game rooms. If you love traveling with your pet, then you’ll appreciate the pet-friendly options that are available.

Fun at the Beach

On your way to the attractions, visit Duck Donuts for homemade doughnuts that will melt in your mouth. After a long day in the sun, stop in at one of the excellent restaurants for great seafood and American dishes. The Outer Banks has some of the best beaches in the nation. They’re clean and family-friendly, and many of them have lifeguards on duty during the summer months. If you head over to Duck Beach, then you can even take your four-legged family members with you. You'll also find great little shops along the beaches and main strips, including art galleries, antique stores and the more traditional tourist shops. With so much to do at the beach, you can easily keep the entire family entertained.

Pirate Adventures for the Kids

Your kids can take their pretend playtime to an entirely new level at the Pirate Adventures attraction. After getting dressed up in pirate outfits, the kids will be taken out to a real ship for an amazing adventure that includes firing cannons and finding their own treasures. Reservations are a great idea as this is a very popular attractive for younger kids and their parents.

Roanoke Island

The Roanoke Island Festival Park is just a short drive from the private homes available in Rodanthe. When you come to this park, you can take a tour of the Elizabeth II ship, stop in at Indian Town and see people wearing period dress. It’s a great time for the entire family, and the kids just might learn something new while on vacation.

The Best Time for a Trip

The Outer Banks has a mild climate in the winter with temperatures dropping into the low 50s, and the summer highs are seen in July, August, and September with temperatures in the 80s or higher. The average temperature of the ocean in the summer is a comfortable 70 degrees, and this makes it a great vacation spot for families. July and August are the rainiest months, but the weather dries out slightly in October, November, and December.

If you ask the locals when the best time to visit is, they’ll say that every season has its own special feel and offerings. While the winter months are quiet and most of the shops are closed, some people still enjoy visiting for the peace and quiet. You’ll find excellent fishing in the fall, and windsurfers enjoy coming to Nags Head during this time because the winds pick up a little. Summer brings the biggest crowds and highest energy level, but you’ll also find that the spring is very enjoyable as the shops reopen and people start enjoying time outside again.

Transportation

The Outer Banks has an active shuttle transportation service that makes it easy to fly in for your vacation. They offer express rates from Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head to Norfolk. Visitors from across the eastern seaboard and even the Midwest will choose to drive to the area so that they can have their own car for visiting the different attractions.

                                                              Overall we were very happy with our stay. The owner was great to work with and very responsive. Everything was as expected. The only small negatives: the fireplace did not work (no gas tank and it was in the 30s at night) and the main road was just a little noisy at the front of the house, just around sunrise when things were very quiet and traffic was picking up. Setting the heating/cooling fan to run from auto helped mute the occasional noise. Thank you for a great 3 night stay.

                                                              We stayed here for a girl's weekend to celebrate birthdays. The house looks just like the pictures online. The cottage was so clean and relaxing. The kitchen was fully stocked. We went the 2nd week in April while it was too cold to get in the beach, we didn't miss it. There were times that we didn't want to leave the cottage cause we were so comfortable. Cindy was so easy to work with and accommodating. She even gave me suggestions on things to do in the area. I already plan on going back to this cottage.
