Starting the spring search

Hey guys!

I’m starting to comb websites and I’m on the hunt for a rental for 5/8-5/15 or 5/15-5/22.

I’m open to anywhere on the OBX and I’ve developed a short list. I’m leaning towards Corolla, but Hatteras Island is lovely as well.

My budget for rent is about 3 grand for this trip, but I might be able to squeeze out a little extra for a hidden gem.

We’re five adults and one dog, and we want a private pool. Preferably as close to the ocean as possible, but it looks like 3k isn’t going to get you OF for those dates, no worries.

If anyone has already booked and doesn’t mind sharing hidden gems, I’d really appreciate it.


Right now on my short list is:

Our own BradZ’s Crosswind Landing

Ocean Mist Villa

Four Suns by the Sea

Permanent Vacation

If anyone has any thoughts on these homes or further recommendations, please chime in smiley

Thanks guys!

I’d love to get down to Hatteras Village for a week, but I don’t think I can swing 4500$ for the week.

Nonetheless — Marlin Daze is a beauty.

Not sure if this will work. Was looking at this one for family and it would fit. It’s a VRBO app link.

If you're willing to rent from that certain company on HI that got bad press last year, they have many that fit your needs. Ocean front too. Quick search yields quite a few really nice houses, under $3000 for 5/8. Some will be over after taxes, of course.

Assume we're talking S&S? If so, "Bad press" does not always equal accurate press....there's (always is) another side to the story. If any folks on here are PM'd w them would be curious as to their take....

Comletely understand, and I had no issues with them in two rentals last year, and have another booked this year. I only brought it up because I thought Ali was one that said he wouldn't use them. Could be wrong.

Lol of course they do. I’ll have to think long and hard before I do business with them again.

Honestly, I think I’ll reach out to Brad and see if he wants my money before I go through them again.

And there’s nothing wrong with semi-OF in pine island.

I’m trying not to be an entitled little sh1t.

I am not familiar with any, but one, of the homes you listed on HI, and as I searched my brain for former visits at some gems they were lacking pools or pet friendly, or both. We did stay at Brad’s place before he bought, and as he has done several renovations it can only be better, and we were comfortable then. Very well laid out to navigate home, easy beach access. I would think it would be ideal.

Derp, Unbelievable. You are consumed with warnings about the flu. You have been saying the sky is falling for nine months. Dire warnings and (alleged) personal tragedies. Even Faux-ci thinks you are off your gourd. Now, you want to flaunt all the best available "science" and travel from your state to the Great State of North Carolina FOR VACATION?! I guess all your warnings and restrictions are only for everyone else, not you.

Will you observe the Commonwealth of PA restrictions on interstate travel? Or, are you exempting yourself from that as well?
[By Order issued November 17, 2020, the Wolf administration is requiring that travelers entering Pennsylvania from other countries and states, as well as Pennsylvanians who are returning home from other countries or states, have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth or quarantine for 10 days upon entry into Pennsylvania. If a traveler chooses to get tested upon entering the Commonwealth, or is waiting for test results, the traveler must quarantine for 10 days, or until receipt of a negative test result, whichever comes first.]

Stay the hell home, you entitled sh!t.

You'll like this hatteras... I canceled my rental reservation for Lake Wally this summer and sent it to Guv Wolf, along with a message for him that I will not be be doing any business in PA, except for the Amish.

The irony of an anti-vaxxer telling me to stay home is just *chef’s kiss*

BTW, I’m phase 1B as well and I think you should go ahead and snag a dose if you can in the next few weeks. Maritsa already got hers. No side effects.

I have been checking out an area called South Beach at the southern most tip of Salvo. Seven Day Week through Hatteras Realty and a couple ocean fronts too. I think Outer Beaches has a few properties in there too. Here is a link to some drone footage of the area.

Prefer Hatteras Island and usually stay in Avon but it seems like slim pickings for summer bookings. Good luck.
