The Waterloo of Kill Devil Hills

The Waterloo Cottage is one of a handful of Outer Banks vacation rentals added to the local historic landmarks list. The property courses authentic and classic architecture and design and is ideal for large families or groups with its plentiful space.

This cottage-style property sits right by the water – an experience that is always worth seeking on an Outer Banks vacation.

It still retains many of the original features from its 1937 construction, preserved and refined over time. For example, the Waterloo has the original wood floors, which contribute wonderfully to its dazzling rustic waterside nature.

You have access to a recently-renovated kitchen, a massive patio space, and some lovely classic décor to help capture the essence of what it must have been like to live on the water all those decades ago. The Waterloo has five total rooms accommodating upwards of about 14 guests.

The Casa Atlantica of Nags Head

Nags Head is one of the most sought-after destinations of the Outer Banks, and it is not hard to see why. The majestic views, fine attractions, top-tier fishing, and more are all captured with the Casa Atlantica. This six-bedroom four-bath cottage sits by the water, with a stunning view of Jockey’s Ridge.

The property has three total levels with an ambitious patio deck with an attached boardwalk right to the sands. The interior décor is coated with authentic local art and various flavors and designs inspired by the Atlantic Ocean.

The Casa Atlantica Cottage is unique in that it is located on its very own private stretch of beach. This gives you and the whole family free reign to explore the beach as you see fit. It is intimate, personal, reflective, and likely the finest way to experience Nags Head how it should be.

Albemarle || Cola Vaughan Realty || Vacation Rentals in the Outer Banks

The Albemarle of Southern Shores

Southern Shores is a quiet alcove of the Outer Banks, and this intimate cottage rental reflects this atmosphere splendidly. You have multiple floors with easy access, including a middle floor with four total bedrooms.

The ground floor of the Albemarle Cottage is a suitable place to relax and lounge out, with a large widescreen television and patio area. You can also take a dip in the hot tub or take a quick stroll on over to your own enclosed pool and lounge. The property is on the end of a cul-de-sac, so traffic is extremely minimal.

The Albemarle is also located near to some top Outer Banks restaurants and shopping areas in the small historic district of Southern Shores. Contact us for details on the surrounding community, other options for accommodations and closest beach accesses.

These are three of the best Outer Banks vacation rental cottages in their respective Outer Banks regions. But, “best” is subjective and we know better than anyone that the best vacation home is the one that fits your vacation needs.
