Hi Y'all,Heading to the Outer Banks last week of April 1st week of May,Can anyone make a recommendation on a Sound side rental where we can launch from the property. Thanks in Advance D@ve
Hey, Dave. April is a great month for kiting on Hatteras Island.
What are you looking for? There are lots of sound front rentals, from single bedrooms to 12+ bedrooms.
If you just want a bedroom with sound access, I'd recommend calling about the condos at Kitty Hawk Kites, which are 3-bedrooms but can be partitioned to a single bedroom rental if that's what you want. At KHK, you'll get a grassy soundfront launch, as per previous post, with air compressors, assisted launches, and onsite pool, restaurant, shop, etc. Real would be a similar option.
If you're coming with a group and want a large, multi-bedroom rental, there are options in Wind Over Waves in the Tri-Villages or Kinnakeet Shores in Avon. Best to check with AirBnB, VRBO and the local rental companies (Hatteras Realty, Midgett Realty, etc.) for those. There are many other options.
Personally, I like Avon for it's central location on the island. In April, you will likely get SW wind as well as N, NE, NW wind. In Avon, SW, W, or NW wind will be best, but you'll want to drive to Frisco for NE or E wind (for sound riding), or move to oceanside. For SE wind, the best spot is Jockey's Ridge in the Nags Head area. If you are in Avon, you'll be able to access all areas without driving too far.
Have fun, and see you on the water in April.
