Top Ways to Find Affordable Outer Banks Rentals
During the Summer from mid-June to mid-August, Outer Banks Rentals rates are at their peak. You'll save big by considering an off-season week. We suggest April, May, September or October because the weather is ideal, most seasonal restaurants and shops are open and many great Outer Banks events take place. Start your search.
Consider Oceanside or Soundside
Sure, staying directly on the Oceanfront or Soundfront is awesome! However, by staying Oceanside or Soundside you'll save a lot of money! Many Oceanside or Soundside homes have a short (under 5 minute) walk to the beach and some even offer ocean and/or sound views!
Check for Outer Banks Rental Specials
If you are booking in advance, you may want to take advantage of early bird specials. However, the majority of discounting happens as we move closer towards the vacant week, otherwise known as last minute Outer Banks specials.
