Large, spacious rental homes are the norm to see all over the Outer Banks. While these huge homes are amazingly beautiful, they might not be the most logical option for a mini-vacation or for a smaller family. We’ve put together a few reasons why renting a condo for your next Outer Banks vacation might be the best decision you’ve ever made.


A Smaller Place For Smaller Groups

Condos offer the luxury of a large vacation home but the size and convenience a small group needs. Sharing a hotel room can get pretty cramped and having to book multiple hotel rooms can be expensive — plus, you don’t get the quality time that’s valuable to spend with your friends and family. With an Outer Banks condo rental, you can spend that precious time together and still go your separate ways without feeling like you’re on top of one another. It’s a win-win all around!


Did someone say, “Weekend getaway?”

Want to plan a girls trip with a few of your best friends? Been dying to go offshore fishing with the guys? Or do you need just a short weekend getaway for you, your spouse, and the kids? Condo rentals are the way for you to go. OBX condos tend have that sense of a “home away from home” feel that is cozy and comfortable. They’re perfect for just hanging out and relaxing.


A Budget Friendly Find

Because condos are smaller, they’re a more affordable option. Don’t let the small size of the condo fool you though, they can be just as luxe as larger houses. If you and a small group of friends are planning a short getaway, splitting the cost of the already low rental fee makes your vacation cheaper and you still get all of the fun in the sun the Outer Banks has to offer. For small families, the low rental fee will fit easily into your budget, leaving you more money in your pocket. Now you can think about trying that parasailing adventure or dolphin watch that’s been catching your family’s eye.


Smaller Space, Same Features

Remember what we said about condos being just as lavish as the massive vacation homes? Most condos grant you access to pools, hot tubs, and outdoor grilling at no extra cost; just like vacation homes! Some even feature community sport centers, tennis courts, and basketball courts to keep you active. Easy sound and ocean access are available too. Size won’t compromise your experience. You’ll still get the same beautiful soundfront sunsets or oceanside sunrises you can get with a large rental home. And don’t worry about not being able to bring your pup on your trip with you; pet friendly options are available in vacation homes and in vacation condos as well!


With a more convenient size for smaller groups, affordable prices, and some of the same amenities, why wouldn’t you give a condo rental a try? Resort Realty offers an extensive list of Outer Banks condos available for rent from Corolla to Hatteras. Check them out here and plan your next Outer Banks get away today!
