Summer vacation in the Outer Banks is all about soaking up the sun and taking in some truly gorgeous views of the sea. Whether you’re perched on a balcony overlooking the sound or looking out of your rental home’s living room across endless ocean, North Carolina’s barrier islands are a vacation favorite for a reason. To see the best scenes on your next vacation, here are 6 OBX vacation home rentals with unbeatable ocean views:
