Welcome to
Cheap OBX Vacations


... comfortable, affordable, and quiet - great places to bring your family or to come for a peaceful (or romantic!) getaway for one or several couples or friends...just minutes from Nags Head on the Outer Banks of North Carolina

Home (literally)

Here's what our guests have said....

- (I recently received this email...) Bonnie and family! Just received a visit NC blurb on line and with just a little bit or searching found you new web page!  The apartment looks as wonderful and inviting as it did when Bryan and I were there! It was such a truly wonderful place to stay, so peaceful and beautiful, so much more than we ever expected. I cannot say enough about just how unique and calming staying just far enough away from all that sand, and traffic, and all of the outer banks hoopla was.  Close enough to have a blast, and then the small town charm and beauty of Manteo to "come home" to!  That wonderful little town was refreshing and recharging. Can you get homesick for a vacation house? We certainly seem to have been hit with that since leaving Twyne Lane! We will be back.

The rest are from the guest books.....

- Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you for making September so relaxing for two retired school teachers! We loved it all: your spacious, lovely apartment (129A), biking, kayaking, charming Roanoke Island, the beautiful beaches... We'll be back!

- We had a wonderful time in OBX and at your clean and very comfortable apartment (129A). Even our puppy had a great time playing with Bailey and Lizzie!

- We had a great time exploring Roanoke Island and the OBX, especially by bicycle and kayaks. This little "treehouse" is just perfect, and we look forward to visiting again!

- This has been a wonderful and exciting trip for my family, and having a place more like a home than a hotel made it that much more enjoyable! We loved using the bikes (even though we forgot flashlights). My daughter and I also just loved Lizzie - what a great dog! We'll send you pictures! Thank you for having this place available and for being so wonderful and inviting.

- Thank you for your hospitality, generous spirit, and great insider tips on what to see and do. Downtown Manteo is so tucked away- we never would have ventured down there-- but once found, was one of our favortie places! We loved the park and the outdoor concerts - very talented! The apartment was so much more than we expected - spaciuos, comfortable, quiet and far enough away from the craziness of the Outer Banks traffic contests - and best of all.. NO SAND!!

- It's our anniversary - 16 years! And we've been so glad to be able to spend the day and week here! You offer a lovely place, we were were especially interested in your pet policy. Your dogs were a welcome treat! We will definitely recommend to all our friends who like to travel as we do - a unique place and visit!

- Thanks so much! This apartment was so much more spacious, clean, new, etc. that we could have expected! We did take the kayak out and were very glad - even just seeing Manteo from the waterfront was a pleasure. It really helped make our vacation fun that we had such a nice place top come back to at the end of the day!

- We enjoyed our stay- it was peaceful and quiet. All the extras (beach chairs, umbrella, bikes, kayaks, etc.) we much appreciated!

- This has been our 3rd trip to the OBX in 5 years- it's our favorite vacation spot- but our 1st time to have such a roomy place! It was so nice to have plenty of sleeping space and to actually be able to "live"- especially during the heat of the day when it was just too hot to be aoutside! The apartment is thoughtfully and thoroughly furnished - I believe we found everything we lookmed for! It was especially nice to have the washer/dryer and a well-equipped kitchen.

- Our favorite amenity was the quiet forest setting, your wonderful cat and dog, and Mother Nature's display of birds and fauna!

- It's so nice to be central to everything, yet have such a quiet hide-away. Coffee on the deck with the cat was wonderful!

- We certainly had everything we needed here. The use of all your beach gear was the icing on the cake! Our girls will miss Boo (the cat) and are still trying to figure out how she lost her tail!
