Sometimes Two is Better Than One
If your family is too large to stay under one roof, or you are traveling with multiple families that prefer separate accommodations, consider renting two homes side by side or on the same street.
We also offer a great map feature on our search results page dedicated to side-by-side properties. On this page, simply click the map button to see homes in their location and then drill down by criteria such as the number of bedrooms, or homes with pools, etc. (But keep an open mind, you may want to consider one house with a pool, and another without but oceanfront for example. So don't narrow your search by too much.)
Or stay right here and learn more about which homes have these options, the areas they are in, and more details about how they may be a good solution for your Outer Banks vacation. When clicking a home to view its details, you will find a map link under the unit name where you can see the home's address, specific location, and proximity to any neighboring properties. Just look for the grey dots and click one to view and learn more!
You can also call us at 800.635.1559, and we will be happy to assist you with your search!
Kilmarlic Cottage Court in Powell's Point (Mainland)
Kilmarlic Resort Cottages offer 18 luxury accommodations with world-class amenities perfect for both families and golfers.
When traveling from the North, you can't miss the H2OBX Water Park on your right, a sign that you are almost on the Outer Banks! Just after the park, you will find the prestigious Kilmarlic Golf Club community, a great location for golf lovers, water park aficionados, and beach lovers too, with a short drive to the beaches of the Outer Banks to your South!
If you have fallen in love with Corolla too, you're in luck!
Outer Banks vacationers have made Corolla a popular choice due to the spacious beaches and close proximity to adventures like Wild Horse Tours, the Currituck Lighthouse, and beautiful sunsets over the sound at the historic Whalehead Club.
In Corolla you will find several side-by-side options to choose from. Starting with oceanfront, right on the beach, followed by two Crown Point community oceanside homes within walking distance of the community pool and beach access. Then two more oceanside homes in the Ocean Sands L community, both with private pools, followed by another pair close to the beach in the Ocean Sands E community, two doors down from one another.
Corolla Cul-de-sac's for the Win!
Here are 3 homes on Conch Crescent followed by 5 more on Ocean Way
Getting Your Ducks in a Row
Located on the northern Outer Banks in Dare County, just below Corolla, the town of Duck offers family-friendly, private beaches and a bike/walking path throughout the town connecting neighborhoods to quaint shops and local restaurants (many of which are located along the mile-long waterfront sound side boardwalk).
In Duck you are always in close proximity to the water on this narrow spit of barrier island, which means enjoying sunrises over the Atlantic and sunsets over the sound, something you can easily enjoy each day of your vacation.
Cottages in Kitty Hawk
When all you need is the ocean and beach-filled days, consider these Kitty Hawk cottages. Get ocean views for semi-oceanfront prices, or if oceanfront is a must, just across the street (NC 12) are two cottages side-by-side right on the beach.
No swimming pools, no game rooms, and no hot tubs. Just you, your favorite people, and the beach.
Getting Neighborly in Kill Devil Hills
Just south of Kitty Hawk, you will find the town of Kill Devil Hills, with popular attractions such as the Avalon Pier, a favorite spot for locals and visitors alike, offering fishing, live music, an arcade, food, and beverages along with great views all year long.
As you venture south, you will find several options for two homes side-by-side in Kill Devil Hills, units residing in the same condo community, and groupings that can offer great options for keeping friends and family close together but split up as needed when considering must-have amenities such as elevators, or pools, proximity to the beach, and even budgets.
Close to Avalon Pier, you will find neighboring homes, including two semi-oceanfront homes, and further south, two condos, and across the street, two detached homes with private pools.
Wright Brothers Memorial
Here in the heart of Kill Devil Hills, we have several choices for neighboring homes where you and your family can tour this historical sight, the Wright Brothers Memorial, while being close to great shopping, restaurants, and the beach!
On the Beach Road in Kill Devil Hills
Colington Harbour in Kill Devil Hills
When heading South on Highway 158, if you turn right to the West at the Wright Brothers Memorial, get ready to discover a hidden gem called Colington Island. Just 4.5 miles wind you past fresh seafood markets, excellent dining, and views of the Albemarle sound, where crabbing boats head in and out among kayaks, pleasure crafts, and the like. Once you make your way to the far end of the island, you will find the gated community of Colington Harbour, a sound-front boating community offering deep water access, a large community pool overlooking the marina and sound adjacent to a park, and a local swimming hole, with nightly sunsets you won't want to miss.
Also Close to Jockey's Ridge
Here are some 3 and 5-bedroom options. Happy Dog Days is located at Mile Post 11 across the beach road (NC 12); just a stone's throw away from the three side-by-side beachfront properties mentioned above. A great solution for families with pets as it allows for multiple dogs and has a 19x23 Paw Shaped Pool!
Just need the beach? If you don't need a private pool, or accommodations for the dogs, then a bit further down the road at Mile Post 12 you will find these two neighboring homes, both sharing steps over the dunes to the beach.
Village at Nags Head (an Ocean to Sound Community)
Oceanfront in Nags Head at Mile Post 16
These two homes are close to the Outer Banks Shopping Outlets and Jeanette's Pier. A short drive takes you to the serene seaside town of Manteo, just over the causeway bridge. A picturesque drive south takes you along the dunes via NC 12 towards Pea Island Nature preserve and Hatteras, first passing by Bodie Island lighthouse and the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center.
