Have you stayed in an OBX rental yet?


There are so many reasons we love it here. It offers the perfect balance for your vacation because it has plenty of touristy fun (think mini golf, ice cream, and souvenir shops) while not being overly commercialized. It still has a small town feel, even though you can find incredibly fine dining, unique things to do and cool history that even the kids will like (everyone loves pirates).

Great Escapes specializes in the three northern Outer Banks towns of Corolla, Duck and Southern Shores, and each one offers something a little bit different.

We really like Corolla because it just has so much to offer. This is where you will find our famous wild ponies. They are so majestic and beautiful. It’s hard to even imagine what they have endured to survive on their own since they were first shipwrecked here in the 1500’s. Corolla is also home to the Currituck Beach Lighthouse, the Whalehead Mansion and grounds, and has the best selection of shopping, family-friendly activities and history.

Duck is truly our favorite place to get a great meal! Some of the best choices for fine dining are found in Duck. We also love the Duck Town and Boardwalk for taking in some nature and fresh air in any season. The Town of Duck offers activities throughout the year and is a great choice for those seeking a quieter vacation. There are no hotels or big, touristy attractions here. Just colorful, comfortable vacation rentals and the simple fun that comes with the beach.

Southern Shores

Southern Shores is primarily residential, so once again, you are in for a peaceful retreat when you rent a home here. Just minutes from popular attractions like Jockey’s Ridge State Park and the Wright Brothers National Memorial, you can kick off a fabulous vacation in Southern Shores.

Our OBX rentals come in a variety of sizes, prices and offer different amenities depending on your needs. We’ve got oceanfront, sound side and even pet-friendly rentals available.

So, back to that free vacation we were talking about…

Just enter the contest to win a free vacation rental for a whole week (dates will be September 1-8, 2019). This is a great time to try to win a vacation for your family, perhaps for a little reunion! Are the kids already back in school at that time? You could use that week for the best girls’ trip ever if you can find someone to stay back with the little ones!

If you happen to homeschool then you should DEFINITELY enter this contest! Not only do you have a wonderfully flexible schedule, the Outer Banks offers countless educational opportunities for your young students. We really have it all and you can build a curriculum around your vacation that week. We’ve got Science (seashells, the ocean, marine life and weather), History (pirates, ponies, man’s first flight and lighthouses), Physical Education (kayak, swim and play!), Art (check out these fun projects) and so much more.
