You are here

Finding the perfect vacation home that checks all the boxes for everyone in the family can be a challenge. Our website is designed to make searching for your OBX vacation rental home quick and easy. 

Based on your search criteria, the results list will lead you to choices you can easily mark as favorites to return to. You can also fine-tune your results as needed. But with such a wide variety of homes, each offering different features appealing to guests preferred amenities, if we listed every single amenity choice on one screen, it would be a VERY BIG SCREEN.

While having choices is great, too many can be overwhelming. So, we thought we would list some of our amenities that don't appear in the filter screen but might be exactly where you want to start your search. You need to start somewhere. Right?

Also, remember that we have a wonderful team of friendly Vacation Specialists here to assist you!  If you need any help with your search, call or text us, and we'll get started immediately.

Corn Hole Game

Well, here's a fact.  Chillin' and grillin' can't happen without cornhole.  If the family loves to play but would rather make room in the car for other vacation essentials, you can either rent a cornhole game from our friends at Ocean Atlantic Rentals, or stay in one of our 100+ homes that already have one on-premises.

Several billiard aficionados in the family?  If a game of pool is a must-have option while on vacation, you won't need to drag everyone down to the local pub. Many of our homes have pool tables, and a few even have bumper pool.  While you can search for the 'rec room' amenity from several places on our website, the game contents of each rec room vary.  We have a handful of homes with shuffleboard tablesping pongair hockeyarcade games, and arcade tables, too!

Over half of these homes allow more than three adult, house-trained dogs.  We call these homes extra pet-friendly, and here they are:

fenced yard

Let the kids run free, while you stay worry-free in a home with a private fenced-in yard.  Yards with a fence are a pretty rare find on the Outer Banks, unless it's a home with a private pool.

The Great Outdoors and You

Charcoal Grill

One can not fully chill until after grilling. Maybe you found the perfect house, but it has only one or maybe even two park-style grills. Well, fear not—you can rent a gas grill from our friends at Ocean Atlantic Rentals.  Or you can search for homes that come equipped with:

What says 'beach vacation' more than sitting outside sipping on your favorite beverage at the Tiki Bar?

Outdoor Shower

You haven't lived until you have experienced the exhilaration of an outdoor shower, and as luck would have it, most of our homes have one.  They come in pretty handy when you want to rinse off the beach before heading inside or hopping in the pool.  They're also just an experience in and of themselves.

Putting Green

If you are a golfer, you already know the Outer Banks has some of the best golf on the East Coast.  Not only do we have homes located close to courses, including Seascape, Nags Head Links, Duck Woods, and Kilmarlic, to name a few, but we also have homes with their own putting greens!  Of course, no matter where you lay your head while here, you are never far from a round of golf, or a fun game of putt-putt with the family.  We have several putt-putt courses scattered throughout the Outer Banks, including one buried under Jockeys Ridge State Park!
