Rental Locations Explained

Oceanfront:

No units between the Oceanfront unit and the beach. The distance to the water may vary, but there are no units between you and the ocean. With very few exceptions, most Oceanfront units have a good view of the Ocean with an easy walk to the water. View our oceanfront rentals.

Oceanside:

Units are located between the Ocean and Beach Road. While a few of these have an unobstructed ocean access, all are near and easily accessible to the ocean without crossing any major streets. Most of these have some ocean view. Most houses on the Oceanside have a very short walk to the beach. View our oceanside rentals.

Semi-Oceanfront - Beach Road:

Units are located on the west and front sides of Beach Road, NC 12 in Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head and NC 1243 in South Nags Head. There may be one or more properties located between the subject property and the Ocean and a two-lane road must be crossed to get to the Beach. Most homes in this category offer Ocean Views and a short walk to the Beach. Please refer to individual property descriptions. View our Beach Road rentals.
