Down below we have handpicked some of the best places to stay in the Outer Banks using Airbnb and broken our list up into the 5 most popular towns:

  • Kitty Hawk
  • Nags Head
  • Kill Devil Hills
  • Duck
  • Corolla

If you haven’t used Airbnb before, take it from us that staying in one of the Outer Banks vacation rentals is the way to go! We recently visited the OBX and stayed in a hotel, but the hotel scene is limited here and this destination is more suited to vacation rentals!

By using Airbnb on your OBX vacation you get access to a full kitchen (saving you money on eating out three times per day), separate bedrooms and privacy (perfect for families), a living room, a washer and dryer, the chance to stay in nice neighborhoods and many of the comforts of a home-away-from-home!

AND, considering it’s 2020 and it is suggested we social distance, Airbnb can be a great way to isolate yourself compared to staying in a hotel with many others!
