Why not yacht it?

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the yacht as our "home" for 6 nights while in the OBX. It had everything we needed, was tastefully decorated and so very conveniently located on the first slip along the dock in the Manteo marina. You can literally walk to everything, including a nearby coffee shop, restaurants and even enjoy a morning run along the pier into the neighboring streets. Sharon is a warm hostess and checked in on us to be sure we had everything we needed. Only downside was that internet was from the marina and at times unstable

Our 2 small dogs were very happy to settle in on the couch with a bird's eye view of us cooking in the galley or bustling about in the master "stateroom". With one full bath and one half bath, and accommodations to sleep 2 others, this is a must do for a couple or a family of 4. Take the chance, and "yacht it" on your next vacation stay in Manteo!

It was a wonderful adventure.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week getting to know Manteo and the surrounding barrier islands. Of an evening we would retire to the Starry Banner to a comfortable romantic place nestled in the marina. A wonderful adventure for us.

Something differed and fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Starry Banner was a most wonderful adventure. I was surprised at how much room we had inside the yacth. I received a call before check in letting me know it was ready for our arrival. The beds were comfy and the towel luxury soft. We didn't use the stocked kitchen due to all the places in walking distance. Even the weather was great. Our truck broke down on our first evening. Sharon out hostess assisted us getting towed and then picked us up. She even offer to take us back when it was fixed. 5stars in all categories.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most unique vacation rental- and does not disappoint! Whether you are an experienced boater or a novice, this rental has everything you need to feel at home. There are clear instructions provided when you board and the owner is easily accessible for any questions you might otherwise have (although the informational booklet pretty much covers everything). It has a full galley (kitchen) to prepare meals aboard and linens and towels are included in the staterooms (bedrooms) and heads (bathrooms). Heat and AC are provided if needed, or you can enjoy the outdoors with a full view of the Manteo waterfront from the flybridge. It is located at the heart of the Manteo marina with easy access to the stores and restaurants along the waterfront. Even the residents of the dock are a joy to chat with! You must try this rental for an experience like no may never vacation on land again!

Try something different!

  • 5 of 5

We saw this historical yacht on VRBO. At first, we weren't sure we wanted to stay on a boat. The more we thought about it, the more we thought it would be a neat experience. It was fantastic! We had a wonderful time visiting Manteo, the Outer Banks and making the Starry Banner our home away from home for five nights.
