Ultimate Rest and Relaxation at Sunflower Siesta

Sunflower Siesta is the ultimate place to spend your next Outer Banks vacation. With 5 Bedrooms and 4.5 Bathrooms sitting just a short walk away from the beach, you won’t be able to believe how relaxing your stay can be. Enjoy a soak in the warm, bubbly Hot Tub or take a dip in the Private Pool before heading to the beach or playing around in the Game Room with an Arcade Gaming System. All TVs in the home are Smart TVs, so you'll never have to miss out your favorite shows while relaxing at the beach. Every minute you spend in Sunflower Siesta will wash away your worries and transport you to a place where you can take each day one beautiful Outer Banks sunrise at a time. 

When you pull up to the Ground Level of this gorgeous Outer Banks oasis, you’ll find plenty of parking in the driveway and under the Covered Carport where you can also go ahead and relax at the Outdoor Bar with a nice, icy drink after your drive into town. Straight out back, you can rest your muscles after a day at the beach in the warm, bubbly Hot Tub after rinsing off the sand in your Outdoor Shower. Take a dip in the Private Pool* then indulge yourself with some fresh local seafood or steak on either the Gas Grill or the Park-Style Grill nearby. Relax on the cozy outdoor furniture and enjoy the fresh ocean breezes from the Carolyn Drive Beach Access just a 3-minute walk away! When it’s time to get some sleep, head inside where you’ll find a Bedroom with a Queen Bed and a Twin Bed (perfect for keeping the kiddos close) and a King Bedroom with semi-private access to the Full Hallway Bathroom nearby.

When you’re ready to blow off some steam over some friendly competition, head upstairs to the Game Room with an Arcade Gaming System where you can have some fun on the Foosball Table before whipping up some yummy snacks in the Wet Bar with a Mini-Fridge. Take a nap on the Sleeper Sofa and step out onto the Mid-Level Wrap-Around Deck for some fresh, ocean air and the warmth of the Outer Banks sunshine! You’ll pass by the conveniently-located Washer and Dryer on this floor as you make your way to the bedrooms, so mid-week washes and fluffing up those beach towels is a breeze. Get some rest for another day of exciting Outer Banks adventures and enjoying the surf, sand, and sun in the Queen Bedroom with semi-private access to the Full Hallway Bathroom or the King Master Bedroom with a Private Bathroom and access to the Deck where you can enjoy a warm cup of coffee on a quiet, peaceful morning.

Spend time together with the people you love on the Top Floor where you’ll find a spacious Living Area with high ceilings, large windows, and a Flat Screen TV that’s perfect for family movie night or relaxing on the sofa on a rainy day. And don't forget the Premium WiFi that's ideal for remote work or watching your favorite shows. Cook up some fresh, local seafood in the amply-stocked Kitchen with modern appliances and beautiful cabinetry. Eat together in the open-concept Dining Area or get the kids set up at the Bar, where you’ll find additional seating for 3. Pass by the Hallway Half-Bathroom on your way to the Furnished Sun Deck where you can take advantage of the fresh, ocean air and watch the sky turn pink and orange as the sun comes up over the water. Retreat to the King Master Bedroom with a Private Bathroom, Jetted Tub, and Access to a Private Deck when you’re ready for some peace and quiet. Wherever you choose to spend your time at Sunflower Siesta, you can rest assured that each and every moment will be peaceful and beautiful for the length of your Outer Banks vacation. And be sure to book again soon so that you can come back to the fantastic home year after year, making memories and traditions for your whole family group.

Kill Devil Hills - An Essential Area for the Best OBX Attractions
And while you’re here, be sure to explore the bustling attractions of Kill Devil Hills! Guests looking to learn more about the history of the Outer Banks should stop by the Wright Brothers National Memorial to the north or Jockey’s Ridge State Park to the South in Nags Head. The historic Avalon Pier is a great place to spend an afternoon fishing while Nags Head Woods offers the perfect opportunity to observe the flora and fauna of the island. Sample fresh seafood and other local fares at one of several restaurants close by including Pigman’s Bar-B-Que, Mama Kwan’s Tiki Bar & Grill, Miller’s Seafood & Steak House, Country Deli, The Kill Devil Grill and Beachcombers Tiki Hut where you can also enjoy oceanfront dining! Head to Bob’s Grill for a breakfast of champions! If you’re super hungry you can try their dozen-egg omelet, but we bet you won’t finish it. Prove us wrong! For lunch or dinner, you can’t go wrong with a burger from Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint -- all their delicious burgers are made from 100% wagyu beef. The Outer Banks Brewing Station offers fun for the entire family! They have cornhole and acoustic performances in the large outdoor fenced-in area most nights from 6-9 PM and live bands for the adults from 10 PM to 2 AM! Whether you spend your days lounging in the pool, relaxing by the ocean, or exploring Kill Devil Hills, you’ll love your stay at Sunflower Siesta.

Our large group stay was simply amazing! The home is nothing less than beautiful! The very spacious, clean and thoughtfully cute home was perfect. Great food, live music and sand beneath your feet are an easy walking distance. No need to drive anywhere! Better than advertised! Can’t wait to go back!

The Sunflower Siesta is a beautiful vacation home! The owners did not leave out any detail when it comes to this property. The house was very clean and has great amenities! They have done an awesome job of decorating this home and making sure nothing is left out; from the Game room, hot tub, pool, TVs, etc. There are numerous places to eat, breweries, Tiki Hut, and shopping within walking distance. The beach is a very short walk away. You never have to drive your car once you arrive. We highly recommend this property for a wonderful week of vacation!

This place is amazing! It’s super clean, spacious, nicely decorated and the sunset views from the main Living Room are to die for. Bedrooms are spaced out so you don’t feel on top of each other and the beds are comfortable. Plenty of space inside and out to relax. Pool and hot tub are fantastic and clean. The location is perfect- lots of food and shopping nearby, and there is a great Pizza /ice cream place right behind the house. Just a couple minute walk there, or to the beach. We enjoyed every moment of our stay here and will 100% be returning to Sunflower Siesta for our next Outer Banks vacation!

This was my second stay at Sunflower Siesta. I love the location and how we could walk to restaurants and the beach! I really enjoyed the endless views from the living room. Our rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed to make us feel at home. While there, we enjoyed the new hot tub. It was one of the cleanest homes that I’ve ever stayed at. I enjoyed going for walks each day through the neighborhood. I even met some friendly people who live there. I can’t wait to return!

FAQ

What do all the different locations mean?

There are two (2) roads running north/south on the Outer Banks. The "Beach Road" (NC 12) is a 2-lane road with a speed limit of 35 MPH. The "Bypass" (US 158) is a 5-lane road with speed limits 45-50 MPH. 

 

Please note: The Bypass is incredibly busy during the summer season on the Outer Banks. Seaside Vacations advises our guests to please take safety precautions when traveling on the Bypass. If you must cross the Bypass on foot, please make sure to do so at designated pedestrian crosswalks - never using the center turn lane as a stopping point.

 

Oceanfront - An oceanfront home has no homes or buildable lots located between it and the ocean. The distance between the home and the ocean may vary. 

 

Semi-Oceanfront - Semi-oceanfront homes are located one lot back from the ocean and may or may not require crossing the road. Children always will need assistance to cross any road. The rental may or may not have a home between it and the beach. The distance to the water, beach accesses, and views vary.  

 

Oceanside - These homes are located east of Highway 158. These homes have two or more homes between them and the ocean. These homes may or may not require crossing a road, and may or may not have an ocean view. The distance to the ocean varies. 

 

Soundside - These homes are located west of Highway 158 from Southern Shores to Nags Head and west of Highway 12 from Southern Shores to Corolla. The distance to the sound and views vary. Some homes may not have direct access to the sound (soundside homes in the village of Duck do not have direct access to the sound).  

 

Soundfront - These properties front the sound with no homes or lots in between. The distance to the sound, access to the sound and the view vary. Sunsets can be gorgeous! 

Do you offer any travel insurance? 

We offer travel insurance through Red Sky Travel Insurance. We highly recommend a travel insurance plan, especially since the Outer Banks is so prone to hurricanes. The travel insurance plan is priced affordably and covers a variety of issues that could impact your vacation should unforeseen circumstances occur. As they say on TV, “Life comes at you fast.” Most notably would be a mandatory evacuation due to a hurricane. Here are a few other things covered by travel insurance: sickness, injury or death of you or a family member, business partner, or traveling companion, the insured’s principal residence being made uninhabitable by fire, flood, vandalism, or burglary, involuntary termination of employment, military duty, etc.

 

If you would like to have specific questions answered, please call RedSky Travel Insurance at (866) 889-7409 or visit www.suntrippreserver.com (policy coverage information).

 

Remember, in order to have coverage due to a named hurricane, a travel insurance plan cannot be added after a tropical storm becomes a “named hurricane.” We tell you this because it could be very costly to wait. You would have to contact Red Sky Travel Insurance for specific details.

Do I have to pay any taxes on my rental? 

Unfortunately, the tax man doesn’t take vacations. Obviously, we do not set the tax rates and we only collect the taxes for the county. If your rental home is in Currituck County (Corolla), the tax is 12.75%. If your home is in Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, or Nags Head, the tax is 12.75%.

I don’t see rates for next year. When will these be available?

We publish rates for the following year in spring/summer of the current year. You may reserve the home by paying the first half of the rent or by setting up payments with our Vacation Layaway ProgramIf you don't see rates or availability for a home online yet, give us a call and we can place a hold on the home for you. 

What/where is Club Seaside?

Club Seaside is an exclusive program consisting of complimentary events and discounts on popular Outer Banks activities that are exclusive to Seaside Vacations guests. Click on Club Seaside to obtain more information including schedules, contact information and to make reservations for each activity.

*Some events include a small fee.

Are linens and towels provided? 

Linens and towels are provided for ALL of the homes in our vacation rental home program. 

 

Towel sets are also provided. There are enough towel sets for the number the house sleeps.

 

One bath towel, one hand towel and one washcloth per person is provided. The towels and linens are placed on each bed in the home. One bath mat per bathroom is also provided. (Towels are not freshened daily.) Two potholders, one dish towel, and one dishcloth are provided and are placed on the kitchen counter prior to your arrival.

 

We do offer extra sets of both towels and linens at an additional charge. For prices and to place an order, contact a Vacation Specialist at (866) 884-0267.

 

Please Note: Beds are not made prior to your arrival. Linens are provided for them and are placed on their respective beds. 

Does my property have internet access and how is the WiFi? 

Most of our properties do offer internet access. Please check your property's website description to determine what type of internet service (if any) is available. If your home doesn’t provide this service, there are many free WiFi hotspots all over the Outer Banks. 

 

Wifi is normally very good, however, being in a remote area there are occasional unexpected outages. In those events, we will do everything in our power to get service restored as quickly as possible, but we would recommend bringing a hotspot as a backup plan if wifi is a necessity for your family.

 

Below is the lowest broadband speed for Dare County's internet providers:

 

Spectrum: 50MB
Century Link: 10MB

What are your policies on bringing a pet? 

Most dog friendly homes allow two (2) mature, house-trained dogs (75-pound limit). Dogs are not allowed in any rental home unless otherwise indicated. Cats and other animals are not permitted. A $160 fee (plus tax) per dog per week is added to the rental amount. Dogs (and any other animal) are not allowed in pools, hot tubs or spas. Tenants are responsible for any damage incurred by their dog, as this type of damage is not covered under our Security Deposit Waiver Fee. Owners of dogs at non-dog homes will be subject to a $200 unauthorized pet fee and may be evicted without a refund. 

Please be aware that all of our beaches have leash laws.

Our vacation home has a pool. Can we have the pool heated? 

Pool heat is available with some of our homes typically between April-June and September-October. There is an additional charge for pool heat and this charge varies by home.

 

Please remember that most pool heaters will only heat the water 5 to 8 degrees above the outside air temperatures. For example, if the air temperature is only 60 degrees, the pool water will likely be no warmer than 68 degrees. Pool heat does not give a “hot tub” effect, it merely prolongs the pool swimming season.

What time is check-in? 

Please know that we want to get all of our guests into their vacation home as soon as we can. Our check-in time begins at 5:00 p.m., as the houses become available and are released by Housekeeping and Maintenance. We will be happy to check you in as soon as the cleaners/inspectors give us the "OK." Again, please know that our goal is to get you on your way, enjoying your vacation, as soon as we can.

I have keyless entry. Do I still have to come to the office?

Our keyless entry service allows you to go straight to the home on check-in day, any time after 5:00 p.m.! In addition, when checking out, you may head straight home (skipping our office).

Do you offer early check-in? 

We do offer early check-in for homes with 1-5 bedrooms, but we do have a limited number available each week. Please call us and request an early check-in at least one week in advance. The cost for early check-in is $125, plus tax. Early check-in is at 2:00 p.m. Unfortunately, we cannot offer this service on homes with 6 or more bedrooms.  

What are your check-out cleaning requirements?

Check-out is at 9:00 a.m. on the day of departure. Cleaning crews arrive at the home at 9:00 a.m.; your prompt departure is appreciated. 

All keys are to be returned to our office upon departure. (Keyless entry guests do not have to stop by the office to check out).

Please leave the home tidy by completing the following items:

  • Remove only the fitted/flat sheets from all beds and leave them piled at the foot of the bed
  • Clean out the refrigerator and leave the refrigerator/freezer settings on medium
  • Place all trash in the cans provided or in a nearby dumpster. Move trash cans/recycle bins to the edge of the street the night before you leave. Make sure all trash is placed INSIDE of the cans, or the trash will not be picked up (Pick-up is done prior to dawn.)
  • Please wash and put away all dishes or place them in the dishwasher and begin the cleaning cycle
  • Turn the thermostats to 75 degrees (summer) and 55 degrees (winter)
  • Please turn off all inside and outside lights
  • Leave grills, furniture, and accessories as you found them
  • Remove toys/trash from the pool area
  • Make sure the hot tub cover is secure
  • Make sure the propane tank has been shut off for all gas grills
  • If you have rented a pet-friendly home, please be sure you have cleaned up any pet waste from the premises
  • Please clean any and all grills using the grill brush provided
  • If any member of your party has smoked outside, please be sure all cigarette butts have been picked up from the grounds
  • Check closets, drawers and under beds for personal items
  • If you logged into a smart device or streaming program with your personal login information, be sure to log out
  • Please make sure you close and secure all windows and doors and also have someone check the security of all doors and windows from outside the home.

Can you drive on the beach in the Outer Banks? 

Beach driving is allowed on several places in the Outer Banks but permissions vary by town. Driving is allowed year-round in Corolla/4x4 Carova Beach Area north of the paved road but only allowed south of that point between October 1 and April 30 and parking permits are required in-season. Driving is allowed on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore at designated access ramps and with a permit only. Driving in Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head is permitted with a permit between October 1 and April 30 at designated access points. All 4x4 access areas are subject to change due to nesting wildlife or impending weather conditions at each town's discretion.

Which Outer Banks beaches allow bonfires?

Gathering around a beach bonfire is the perfect way to spend your evening. On the Outer Banks, bonfires are allowed on the beach in Nags Head, on Hatteras island and on Ocracoke Island under certain conditions and with a permit. Bonfires are prohibited on the beaches of Corolla, Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills. Learn more about having bonfires on the OBX.

What are the Outer Banks wild horses?

The Outer Banks Wild Horses (also known as the Corolla Wild Mustangs or Banker Mustangs) are a herd of wild horses who live in Northern Corolla and are descendants of horses brought to the "New World" by Spanish explorers. Banker Mustangs can be spotted roaming the beach, playing in the waves, and grazing on native vegetation. These mustangs, although docile in nature and beautiful to watch from afar, are still wild and should never be approached, touched or fed. The herd is managed and protected by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. Learn more about the OBX Wild Horses.

What is the trash collection schedule?

Please click here to find the days of the week that trash collections will take place for each town.

 

Bag all trash and place it in the home's outdoor trash receptacles with the lids tightly closed.

 

Sanitation Cart Placement: To ensure that your trash and recycling cans are emptied, they must be placed out at the edge of the roadway the day before the scheduled collection service. Trash must be inside cans and the lid must be closed.

What is Beach Nourishment?

Beach nourishment is the process of pumping sand onto an eroding shoreline to widen the existing beach. Sources of sand may include a nearby sandbar, a dredged source (such as an inlet or waterway), or an offshore borrow site along the ocean floor. The widened shoreline provides increased defense from coastal storms and beach erosion, protecting property, communities, and infrastructure that are located along the coast.

 

While the Outer Banks coastline is beautiful, it is also very fragile. Storms, high winds and tidal changes all contribute to beach erosion. To restore and preserve our fragile coastline, Dare County and the towns of Duck, Kitty Hawk, Southern Shores, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head have implemented important beach nourishment projects important that are critical to the future of our communities.

 

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this causes and are confident you understand the importance and necessity of this project so you can continue to return and enjoy the Outer Banks beaches for many years to come. We hope you will choose to make the best of your vacation should you find your stay impacted by the beach nourishment project.
