Total relaxation and pleasure on your own terms. An experience catered expressly to your style and your needs, with memories to last a lifetime. When you choose an Outer Banks vacation rental by ResortQuest, you'll enjoy luxurious space, privacy, multiple rooms, fully appointed kitchens and baths, and other thoughtful details of home.

Here are the top 10 reasons how Outer Banks vacation rentals by ResortQuest outweigh (and outstay) hotels:

1. More for Your Money
An oceanfront hotel room can cost as much as $299/night during the summer. The average cost per night, per person in an oceanfront Outer Banks vacation rental home? As low as $45 a night! And the hotel room can't boast a private gourmet kitchen, expansive multi-level decks, private pools and hot tubs…

2. Limitless Options
Which would you prefer? Spending your beach vacation in a hotel room that looks like every other hotel room in America? Or…relaxing in your own private Outer Banks vacation rental? The choice is yours…play some tennis next to your resort villa, listen to the waves break from the balcony of your 10-bedroom oceanfront estate, watch the radiant sunsets from the porch of your sound front home…or watch the final putt on the 18th hole from your golf course home. When you want to get away from it all, ResortQuest can make it happen.

3. Privacy Please
No more cramped hotel rooms, no more housekeepers knocking and no more noisy strangers on the other side of the wall. Just the comfort, privacy and freedom of a lovely home -- all right beside the country's most unforgettable beaches, golfing, fishing, water sports and more.

4. Your Own Mini-Resort
From game rooms with pool tables to theater rooms with surround sound, the options for fun are limitless. Plus, with each Outer Banks vacation rental home boasting its own private kitchen, it's easy to plan and host large family dinners without the hassle of traffic, reservations or hard to please taste buds.

5. Pools and Hot Tubs
No pool or hot tub hours. No lifeguard. No sharing. When you stay in an Outer Banks vacation rental, the pools and hot tubs are for your own private use. And if you feel like a midnight swim, well, it's all yours.

6. You Need (and Get) Your Space
Feel like catching up on your beach read while you relax by the pool? Husband ready to grill out? Kids demanding to play foosball? With our wide selection of Outer Banks vacation homes, the entire family will have plenty of space to relax, unwind and truly stretch out.

7. Say "I Do"
Outer Banks vacation rentals offer you a unique location, with extraordinary amenities, to host Outer Banks Weddings, receptions and rehearsal dinners (as well as guest accommodations). Enjoy a romantic beachside ceremony and then a fabulous reception….right in your own home!

8. Even Dogs Need a Little "R&R"
There's no need to leave your dog in a cramped kennel for a week...many Outer Banks vacation rental homes are pet-friendly and allow your dog to vacation with you!

9. Well-Equipped
We know the drive to get to your beach vacation can be a long one. That's why our owners have done some of the work for you. From beach chairs and DVDs to baby equipment and games, most Outer Banks vacation rental homes are well-stocked…so you can leave those things at home and make more room for….FUN!

10. Wear Flip Flops to Work
The wide variety of peaceful settings mixed with the unique blend of premier properties makes vacation rentals the perfect location for Outer Banks meetings and conferences. Imagine…hosting your next meeting in a crowded hotel conference room. Or….discussing ideas around a large table overlooking the beautiful blue Atlantic. Where would you be most creative?
