Outer Banks vacations always have families in mind. It’s for good reason too, since the destination is a hot spot for finding some of the biggest beach home rentals in the Outer Banks. From oceanfront to soundfront and everything in between, here are 5 huge OBX beach homes to rent that you can bring the whole crew to this summer:
Dream Catcher by the Sea
Dream Catcher by the Sea is the crowned queen of the Hatteras by the Sea subdivision. Families flock to the exclusive vacation village for some of the best ocean views in town, along with quiet streets, a nature walk and access to Hatteras Island’s best beach. The home itself offers an impressive list of amenities including a private heated pool with an attached kiddie pool, a theater room, an elevator, a game room, and a boardwalk to the beach.
If you’re looking for nonstop fun in the sun and stunning sunset views, Cayman Sunset is an ideal summer haven. Perched right on the Pamlico Sound, the home is family-friendly with features including a private heated pool, a hot tub, a game room, a theater room, and a private soundfront beach with easy access for swimming, fishing, kayaking, standup paddleboarding, kite boarding, and more.
A true oceanfront retreat, Pura Vida blends tropically-inspired décor with serene ocean, dune and sound views. The home’s design gives a nod to its surroundings with outside showers, a private heated pool, a cabana bath, a tiki lounge, a putting green and a hot tub. The inside impresses too with eight bedrooms and seven full baths, an entertainment room, a game room, two wet bars, a family room and a gourmet kitchen. It’s a sister house to the equally as gorgeous Walkin’ on Sunshine, in case you need even more space.
Wings on a Prayer
Built by a top, local builder, Wings on a Prayer boasts awesome views of the Atlantic Ocean and 12 bedrooms, all with private baths. It caters to larger groups with amenities like a theater room, an entertainment room with a pool table and card table, a gourmet kitchen and a private pool, which includes a poolside cabana bar. Multiple living areas and an elevator add even more convenience. Just two lots away from the ocean, hitting the beach is a breeze too.
With over 8,000 square feet of beachfront space, Absolute Paradise is an actual modern paradise. Its unobstructed ocean and sound views are breathtaking, and it’s brimming with in-home entertainment too. State-of-the-art audio and video equipment is throughout the house, including a 70-inch HDTV in the entertainment room, a 50-inch HDTV in the great room, and a 123-inch movie screen in the theater room. Guests can also listen to the house-wide sound system, which reaches the pool area too. Outside, take a dip in the private pool or hot tub, lounge in the tiki bar, visit the sauna or walk the private boardwalk to the beach.
