Summer is just around the corner which is super exciting, but the beginning months can sometimes interfere with beach time here on the Outer Banks. It’s that awkward time of year when sometimes it’s way too hot to be at the beach without jumping in the ocean but the ocean is way too cold to stand for more than a few seconds. What do you do? Spend the day poolside of course! Resort Realty offers over 60 homes that have their own private pool and many houses and condos that provide access to community pools as well. So take some time to cool off and check out our list of Cool Pools to make this Outer Banks vacation your best one ever!
