Updates for 2022: Refurnished Great Room w/Additional Furniture; Refurnished Bedrooms w/Chairs in the King Bedrooms, New Twin in the Twin Bedroom; New Deck Furniture

Plenty of Light in this Peninsula Palace
Where can you find a waterfront retreat that’s close to both the ocean as well as fun downtown niche shops, but still away from the hustle and bustle of OBX beach traffic? This dream vacation home is the best of both worlds -- seclusion and accessibility. ‘Soundscape’ is a marvelous 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath canalfront home in the Peninsula subdivision of Manteo! And when you’re ready to spend the day by the ocean, the nearest beach access is just an 8-minute drive away.

This is the ideal vacation rental for families who want to spend lots of time together while relaxing in the OBX. You don’t even have to leave the property! The sound side of the Outer Banks is the perfect location to enjoy sound side fishing, kayaking, boating, and other water activities, all of which you can do from your private 50ft dock. At night, you and your loved ones can cozy up to the indoor gas fireplace for stories, laughter, and games. If your group gets the itch to explore, Soundscape is minutes from downtown Manteo -- an area full of independently-owned boutiques and restaurants you’re guaranteed to love. 

Park your car in the expansive driveway or carport that can comfortably fit three vehicles. After you walk into the foyer and up the stairs, you’ll be pleasantly illuminated by the copious amounts of natural light. Soundscape has stained glass overhead lighting in the living room and master bedroom on the top level. The spacious living room features an indoor gas fireplace, nestled in with floor-to-ceiling stone -- a perfect gathering spot for friends and family to reconnect and make new OBX memories.

A modern kitchen comes fully stocked with everything you need to cook delicious meals in your own home on those nights you don’t feel like venturing out, including a Keurig for early morning coffee. The well-equipped kitchen has been completely renovated with new stainless steel appliances: refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and oven/range. Enjoy breakfast at the kitchen island bar with seating for 2 or sit down for a family meal in the adjoining dining area. Try not to fight over the King Master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom! This may be hard to do, given its immense size and the perk of a whirlpool spa and massive stone-walled shower with sliding glass doors. In the bedroom, you can kick back and watch the Roku Smart TV or catch some rays while lounging on the top-level deck, accessible through the top-level master bedroom and living room. 

Venture back down to the mid-level where you will find the remaining three bedrooms this home offers. There’s a second King master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. The bedroom comes equipped with a TV and DVD player. Down the hall you will find two more bedrooms, one featuring a Queen bed, the other two Twin beds. These other two bedrooms have the same comforting brilliance of natural light as other rooms in the house, and you can even open the sliding glass doors to walk out on the covered, wraparound mid-level deck with lounge area! The shared bath for these two rooms has two sinks, making getting ready to go out easy for multiple guests. One thing that remains constant throughout all the bedrooms is the storage space from beautiful cedar closets.

On the ground level, the backyard view sets Soundscape apart from so many others! You can’t beat sunsets on the Roanoke Sound, and here, you’ll have one of the best front row seats on the OBX! Plus, the private 50ft dock is guaranteed to provide more joy from potential water activities than your heart can handle. After a day of splashing around in the sound waters or ocean, be sure to rinse off in the convenient outdoor shower before throwing your suits in the mid-level washer and dryer. You'll also find a Mini-Fridge in the Carport for easy access to delicious drinks and yummy snacks both before and after your day at the beach!

Downtown Manteo: A Hidden Gem of Uniqueness and Marvel
Known for its niche shops and restaurants, downtown Manteo is a small hub of creativity that’s oh-so-easy on the eyes. Most of the shopping centers are constructed with an elegant, yet understated New England architectural style. You won’t find a Target or Belk here, but rather independently-owned boutiques and restaurants that capture the uncapped creativity of Manteo and surrounding area residents. Purchase some gifts for friends back home and dare them to try and find replicas ANYWHERE else!

Located on historic Roanoke Island, Soundscape is in the perfect location for learning more about the history of the Outer Banks. Pay a visit to the beautiful Elizabethan Gardens or stop by Fort Raleigh National Historic Site to discover how life on the island was for early settlers. The Lost Colony is an award-winning live theater performance about the famous lost colonists of Roanoke Island and is a great outing for the whole family. Kids will also love a visit to the NC Aquarium where they can see sea turtles, otters, sharks, fish, and many other marine animals. Downtown Manteo offers great shopping and tasty restaurants all with a spectacular view of the water. You can even visit the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse (one of the 5 Lighthouses of the Outer Banks). When you want to venture into the main area of the Outer Banks, you are just a short drive away from South Nags Head and can easily take a day trip North toward Corolla or South toward Ocracoke. With great amenities and an ideal location, Soundscape is where a true Outer Banks adventure awaits!

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. Normally, all beds are made prior to arrival (with exception of top bunks). However, due to Covid-19 safety measures, beds will not be made prior to arrival for the 2021 season.

 

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 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: Bunk beds, pyramid bunks, sleep sofas and trundle beds are not made prior to your arrival. Linens are provided for them and are placed on the respective bed. Unfortunately, we do not provide sheets for cribs.  

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 ahve 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).

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. The following cannot be placed into trash cans and will not be picked up: Oil, propane, paint, charcoal, yard waste, construction debris, or hazardous waste. Trash or recycling placed outside of or on top of the cans cannot be collected. Cans must be removed from the edge of the roadway and placed next to a building as soon as possible on the same day of collection. (Please put trash in the black and brown trash cans.)

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.

 

Seaside Vacations cannot predict when or where these jobs will begin or how long they will last. Since we have no control over these situations, no compensation or moves to other properties are possible.

For your convenience, linens and towels are provided at your rental home. We provide an amenity starter kit so that you have the basics upon your arrival.
