Nags Head Vacation Rentals

Outer Banks vacation homes are the most common form of accommodation for visitors here, and these rentals come in every size and location you could need.

When planning for your Nags Head vacation rental (or your visit to Kill Devil Hills or Kitty Hawk) keep in mind that most local agencies that handle Outer Banks vacation houses offer rentals throughout the area, often from Corolla to South Nags Head, so it doesn’t matter in what town their office is located. The best tip we can give you in choosing your vacation rental is to read our overall descriptions of each town to see which area suits your personality.

Many Nags Head vacation rental homes, especially those in South Nags Head, are located in quieter parts of the beach while Kill Devil Hills rental homes tend to be more in the middle of the action. Other factors to consider when choosing your Outer Banks vacation rental is whether you want oceanfront, soundfront or in between. Pricing changes depending on proximity to water, season, size of house and amenities. We’re listing the Outer Banks vacation rental companies here alphabetically for your convenience.
