Memory Monday 5/22/17- Great Memories

Happy Monday!  This week’s Memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Karen Lombardo of Round Hill, Virginia who shares some great memories of her family’s vacation on the Outer Banks.   Our vacation rental properties were built for great memories, and Karen shares with us several examples of how to best enjoy the OBX with your family at the beach!


Memory Monday 5/15/17 – Danny’s Necklace

Happy Belated Mothers Day to all of the mother’s out there.   We had a great weekend here on the Outer Banks with sunny skies and warm weather.  Today’s Memory Monday photo submission has a great story behind it and so we step aside to hear the story of Danny’s Necklace from Fred Streb of Chantilly, Virginia who stayed with Outer Banks Blue at the Corolla Vacation Rental property “Island Hopping.


Memory Monday 4/3/17 – Family Fun on OBX

Good Monday Morning!   It is a beautiful day here on the Outer Banks and we have several spring break families with us enjoying the warm temperatures and activities around the area.   It is still a little cool to jump in the ocean for our tastes, but still a lot of Family Fun to be had in the area.

Happy Spring!

Let us be one of the first to wish you a happy spring, or better yet a happy end to winter!   While temperatures are still not very spring like in a lot of places, we see signs of warmer weather everywhere.  Daffodils are popping out, golf courses are getting a little bit greener every day, and we are also noticing song birds in the morning for the first time in a while.   Ahhhhh…..spring.

Enjoying the beach!

Happy Monday everyone.  We hope your teams won yesterday and are in the Super Bowl in two weeks.   Lots of Pittsburgh Steeler fans here on the Outer Banks and among our usual guests so we feel for you, but we are very excited for Atlanta Falcons’ fans today who get to cheer for their team in the biggest football game for just the 2nd time in history.

Baby It’s Cold Outside!

Greetings from the cold and frozen Outer Banks!   We did not get as much snow as was predicted this past weekend (3 to 6 inches were predicted to fall on Saturday), but we did get about an inch of snow and the very cold temperatures which made (and is still making) an icy mess.   Main roads are clear on the Outer Banks today, but yesterday was treacherous travelling on the beach, and with temperatures dipping into the teens both last night and the night before we expect there will be many broken pipes and problems in our houses when things warm again into the 50’s tomorrow.

Happy New Year!

Well our phones are quite busy here at Blue today as folks are realizing it is 2017 and its time to reserve your special getaway at the beach for this coming summer.  We have lots of great properties available, but we urge you not to delay as the best properties and the best weeks will be booking up quickly.
