Carolina Designs sound front vacation rentals offer some of the most spectacular views on the Outer Banks, NC and are located on the shoreline of the Currituck Sound, with no building or lot between the home and the sound. Sound front homes not only offer fabulous water views, but also an opportunity to spend time watching breathtaking sunsets in a peaceful environment. The sound, with its quixotic character, sometimes ripples with a wind-driven tide, and other times glistens and sparkles in the prismic angles of the sun, ultimately painting the sound a coral red, as the sun sets and casts its final light of the day onto this wonderful natural resource, sending silhouettes of sea hawks and water fowl into the night. This shallow estuary is home to a variety of migrating water birds and rich sea life, often visible from local piers and docks. The Outer Banks sound is ideal for vacationers who enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding fishing and crabbing.
Most of the Carolina Designs sound front vacation rentals have access to the water via walkways or piers. There are a few homes with sandy beaches and others with billowy grasses lining the shore. Although there is no private launch for jet skis or power boats at the vacation rental homes, there are many private companies that rent power watercraft, sailboats, kayaks and paddle boards. On the northern Outer Banks, vacation rental homes in Southern Shores, Ocean Crest, Bias Shores, Tuckahoe Carolina Dunes, and Monteray Shores have access to the sound through a community pier or beach exclusively for use of that neighborhood. And - everyone is welcome to enjoy the Duck Park, 11 acres situated in the heart of Duck featuring a boardwalk along the sound with several access points. The Whalehead Club Park in Corolla is also public access for the sound in a lovely setting.
Vacation rental homes in Kitty Hawk Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head are close to public sound access points. As always, please consult with our knowledgeable staff with any specific questions about sound front vacation rental homes. Whether you opt for your own private sound access with a sound front vacation home or enjoy the community and public access areas, the sound, with its natural bounty and beauty, for many vacationers, is what makes the Outer Banks a very special destination.
