Roanoke Island Vacation Rentals

Roanoke Island Vacation Rental Options

For many people considering a trip to the Outer Banks, a Roanoke Island vacation rental home isn’t the first thing they think about. But that’s changing. More and more visitors are discovering the charms of Manteo and its draw as a walkable vacation community that offers incredible amenities—tons of arts events, great shopping, heralded restaurants, fun attractions. An extended stay in one of the bed and breakfast inns here is the most common Manteo vacation rental. But other rental options include one larger hotel and several small, charming motels. Wanchese, too, has two delightful bed and breakfasts that show visitors a more traditional Outer Banks vacation experience.

Pirate’s Cove, though located a mile or so from the main waterfront area, offers wonderful Manteo vacation rental home possibilities with its lovely condos, gracious homes and a community that’s rich in amenities. And from here, you’re only another few miles to the beach.

A Roanoke Island vacation rental stay will give you a view of this beautiful little island that day-trippers don’t get. When everyone else has gone home for the day, you’ll feel the quiet soul of this island as you stroll the moonlit boardwalk and quiet streets or enjoy an unhurried meal in one of the local restaurants. And when you wake up here, you’ll see a sunny side of the island that has caused many a visitor to decide to make this place home.
