Summer Sun, Sand & Surf

Spend your Summer in Currituck. Create memories to last a lifetime.

Our Outer Banks vacation rentals offer the comforts of home and the luxury of a beach retreat, and no matter where you stay you’re just a short walk to the North Carolina coast. Every day offers fun and relaxation – swimming, surfing, sailing, and soaking up the sun. If you’re lucky you might spot some of our famous locals – the wild Spanish Mustangs – trotting along the shore. You can also book a 4×4 horse sighting tour to see our friends in their natural habitat in Corolla.

Our summer calendar is packed! Join us for Wild Horse Days, tours of Whalehead in Historic Corolla, and enjoy the view from the top of the Currituck Lighthouse.

When a day at the beach or exploring nature trails leaves you famished, tuck into a succulent seafood dinner or tender Carolina-style barbecue, or even a crisp slice of pizza at Corolla’s many restaurants. If you’d rather stay in, let a personal chef cater meals for the family in your beach rental. As the sun sets, you can enjoy the view from your balcony with a glass of wine from our area vineyards.

Whether you have a long weekend free, a week or longer, the Currituck Outer Banks has your ideal summer vacation accommodations. Arrange your destination wedding and honeymoon or plan your family getaway (bring the dogs along, we’re pet friendly). We’ll supply the memories.
