Happy Fall

Good morning from the Outer Banks where we are transitioning from the heat and beauty of summer. In the middle of the night we switched from summer to fall. That brings mixed emotions as we leave behind summer, but we look forward to cooler days and nights. Some are saying “Yes!” This is the time of year many like the best here on the beach. READ MORE

Toby's First Beach visit

Good Monday morning to you and greetings from the Outer Banks where Spring continues to toy with us. We are seeing daffodils pop up for the first time this year and temperatures were in the 70’s yesterday in the area which is very encouraging.

Greetings from a chilly Outer Banks. The winter weather has finally arrived, and we are really missing those warm temperatures we experienced over the holidays. This week we share a Memory Monday photo of a Father and Son taking a chilly walk on the beach READ MORE

Family Reunion – Memory Monday 5/14/18

Family reunion
We hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day yesterday.  Our Mother’s hit the beach yesterday here on the Outer Banks as temperatures were in the 80’s and the sun was out and bright.   What a wonderful weekend we had.   Great to see our Mom’s and visit with our family.   We hope you were able to do the same.

Speaking of family and reunions we share with you this week on Memory Monday this photo from one of our guests from last summer.  Kristina Castillio-Gough shares this photo today of her family that gathered at the Nags Head vacation rental property “Cinco Palmas.”

This crew of 38 people made up of family members from New York, Illinois, Virginia, and Florida all gathered at this Outer Banks Blue property to celebrate Kristina’s parents’ 50th Wedding anniversary.

Cinco Palmas is one of our properties well equipped to handle this type of gathering as the property is actually made up of 3 buildings.  One large property on the oceanfront, and two smaller villas that gives more privacy to those staying away from the big house.  As you can see everyone can still come together for a group picture however when the time comes!

We thank Kristina for sharing her family reunion story and photo with us on this Monday morning, and hope to serve the family again soon.   We hope to serve your family too.   Keep in mind that Memorial Day is just 2 short weeks away and availability on summer vacation rental properties is dwindling.

Check out our specials page for some real values on select weeks.  If you have the ability to travel in June it would seem to be a good opportunity as we have several houses that are offering special promotional pricing.   Weather is typically fantastic in June, and the beaches, restaurants and shoppes are not as crowded as they can be in July and August.   Something to consider!

All the best from the beach!

 

Good Morning Sunshine – Memory Monday 4/23/18

Good morning sunshine
What a beautiful sunrise we enjoyed this morning.  Reminds us of the song good morning Sunshine as the bright yellow ball rose over the ocean today.  Not to be confused with the song Good morning Starshine by Oliver.  Good morning sunshine  is a silly song written and performed by by Aqua which just makes you smile.

This week’s memory Monday photo submission comes to us from Keith Bardeen of Alckwana, New York who stayed with Outer Banks Blue at the Nags Head vacation rental property “All Seasons.”

This good sunrise was captured during their stay in September, but it could just as easily been captured this morning, as it looked substantially the same.

This morning’s sunrise, just as the one pictured above gave a foreboding sign however.

Weather Change Ahead

There is a famous saying in nautical circles that relates to today’s Memory Monday photo.  “Red sky at night – Sailor’s delight.  Red sky in the morning – Sailor’s take warning.”

This would qualify as a red sky in the morning and sure enough today’s weather forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain moving in later today, and all day tomorrow.   Not a great beach day on Tuesday expected on the Outer Banks.

But at least the temperatures have warmed up to consistently warm levels so folks vacationing at the beach are enjoying golf, fishing, walking the beach and all outdoor activities that one enjoys while relaxing at the beach.

We thank Keith again for his great sunrise shot this morning, and we look forward to serving him as well as you on your next stay on the Outer Banks.

All the best from the beach!
