GAS SHORTAGE ON THE ISLAND? - Posted By: tlbond71 on 4/12/2021
I have heard that there is a gas shortage issue on Hatteras Island - specifically Hatteras Village and some neighboring towns. We are heading there in a couple of weeks and was wondering if this is true and if we should be sure to fuel up in the Nags Head area before we head down? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

LOOKING TO SELL YOUR CANAL LOT FOR TOP DOLLAR? - Posted By: OBX2021 on 4/12/2021
If you are interested in selling your canal front lot in Carova, I am interested in buying it! I am looking for something fairly private to build on (off main road/not next to a rental). If you have adjacent lots to sell, even better. If you are serious about selling, please private message me. I am a no-fuss cash buyer. Thank you!

CONSIDERING PURCHASING A HOUSE - Posted By: skronz on 4/12/2021
I'm in the very early stages of thinking about purchasing a house in the OBX, and was hoping to talk to other home owners. Not really looking so much to learn from the professional rental or large scale people, more so anyone who lives out of state, but purchased one house and rents it out when they're not using it a couple weeks out of the year. Anybody in this position that wouldn't mind helping... [Read Full Post]

OBX RENTAL OWNERS...THE REAL COSTS OF OWNERSHIP? - Posted By: 5513MKII on 4/12/2021
With so much talk about whether or not investing in rental property is a good move, I wanted to more directly discuss the costs of ownership. Not necessarily down to the dollar and cent, but the various categories. My assumption is that the majority of people use a management company. And while it may be tempting to say that PM A charges 14% and PM B charges 12%, therefore A is more expensive,... [Read Full Post]

JOHN'S DRIVE-IN - New Owners have made delicious improvements
The New Owners have made delicious improvements. For those that gave up going here years ago, like me, the new owners (May 2020) have really stepped up to the plate and upgraded the food and quality. If you are one of those that have been going there, then you will notice the new quality and taste of the food. If you are one, like me, that just avoided the greasy fishy tasting food then you are go... [Read Full Review]

SPANKY'S GRILLE - Good Burgers
This is a great place to eat. It is a no frills establishment with counter service. You order at the counter and your food is delivered to you fresh and hot. The burgers and fries were so good and they had fried okra! I don’t know how they make a profit because the prices are low. This is my new go to place from now on.

SPANKY'S GRILLE - Good Food.
I really like this restaurant. It is a no frills place. You walk up to the counter to order. They bring you your food. The prices are low and they have a variety of choices, including fried okra (my favorite). The hamburgers and fries were very good and everyone was so nice. I plan to go back.
