With over 100 miles of pristine blue beaches that fringe the North Carolina coast, the Outer Banks is a popular vacation destination. Four narrow barrier islands stand between the North Carolina mainland and the Atlantic Ocean, each with its own unique vibe – from chill to action-filled.
The best way to stay in the Outer Banks is through the large supply of vacation rentals. We stayed at a magnificent, brand new beach home in the heart of Nags Head called The Sunfish Sanctuary.
With six colorful beachy-decorated bedrooms and six bathrooms, there was plenty of room for our party of seven. On the third floor was an open-plan living space where we socialized in the large lounging area on a cozy sectional sofa convenient to the upscale kitchen, and dining area. Floor-to-ceiling windows looked out to the beach. Other amenities included a private pool and a four-person hot tub, arcade and pool table game room, washer/dryer, gas grill, and even an elevator. They thought of everything!
The location could not have been better. With my morning coffee in hand, I walked the short 160-yard path from the home which led to a gazebo overlooking the beach. On the boardwalk next to the gazebo were steps which led directly down to the beach. Starting the day just doesn’t get any better than that!
With such a central Nags Head location, we were also close to many of the Outer Banks restaurants, shops, art galleries, and attractions like Jockey’s Ridge, the Wright Brothers’ Monument, and Nag’s Head Fishing Pier.
