Help, Need House Recommendations in Outerbanks

We are planning a trip to the Outerbanks in August and would like to rent a home for 8- ages 16 to 79. (happy our kids still want to be with us). Overwhelmed reading reviews. Anyone have a specific house or realty company they like? Ocean Front or Great Ocean View and hot tub a must. Budget $1500 or less for the week. THANKS.

We rented from Midgett Realty and were happy with our rental. The place we rented was Chelsea 1 - I checked and it is booked for the whole month of August. That company was very good to work with. Would rent from them again in a heartbeat.

Oceanfront will be tough with that budget, best to think between the highways or semi oceanfront. Try Sunday to Sunday rentals to avoid a lot of traffic and frustration on those Corolla and Hatteras rentals that add about an hour to the trip..

Thank you! Midgett has a couple of options and I am more confident to rent from them.

Look up Hughes Retreat in Kill devil hills. Nice units - 3 stories, elevator, just across road from ocean. Units are 3 bedrooms.

Oh goodness.......summers fill up very quickly at the Outer Banks, especially ocean front homes. (You wouldn't find anything ocean front with the budget of $1500 anyway). You could find ocean views, but those will also be hard to comeby now that it's March.

You will probably have to get something across the road, but keep in mind, it will be difficult finding anything decent in the middle of summer on $1500 for the week.

We used to vacation there every summer while I was growing up, but it was no where near as expensive as it is now.

Let us know what you're able to find and who you went with.

Have a great trip!

We are finding when there is a house with our "must haves" it is booked. May need to put off Outerbanks until next year and look at other options for this year if we can't book soon. Appreciate everyone's help.
