    The importance of having adequate outdoor open spaces around a large private pool during your vacation on the Outer Banks is emphasized in an article written by Gray Berryman, one of our broker Realtors® at Carolina Designs Realty, titled “The Pool is the New Kitchen.”  Amenities such as a gas grill, cabana, baby pool, hot tub, and water features surrounding the pool are sought after more than ever.  During the rental season, families spend a large percentage of their time outside, specifically in the pool area.  In return for these accommodations, homeowners incur less wear and tear in the home, higher rental rates and more reservations.

    According to TripAdvisor®, a web site that provides recommendations for hotels, resorts, inns, vacations, travel packages, vacation packages, and travel guides, the Outer Banks of North Carolina has been named as one of the top 10 Spring Beach Destinations!

    What was once the best kept secret on the East coast is now world renowned for its unspoiled, sandy beaches and clear green-blue waters.  The Outer Banks covers one hundred miles of barrier coastal beaches and is the hot spot for surfing, fishing, hangliding, kayaking, sunbathing and so much more.

    Spring time is especially glorious here when the trees and shrubs are in full bloom and flowers are so sweet smelling, makes coastal living truly feel like a paradise.  The weather is starting to remain in the upper temperatures, just tipping mid-70’s.  Your vacation rental home awaits you and your family as a home away from home for a week or more to experience this world of great natural adventures and beauty abound.
