Rental house for OBX in early Sept?

Hi, my hubby and I are planning a trip this fall to OBX with another couple. Both couples have twin girls who will be 14 months and 16 months by then. We want to rent a big house (6 bedroom minimum) as there is a third couple with three boys ages 11, 9, and 7, who may join us) stay on the ocean, preferably with a pool, and somewhere that is pretty close to shopping, restaurants, etc. I have never been, and neither has the other couple, but hubby has...Any suggestions?

What do we need to know about Hurricanes at that time of year? Any suggestions at all are appreciated!!!

I would suggest the Nag's Head or South Nag's Head area. You can search rental companies and go through their list of properties online.

As for the weather-yes it is hurricane season. Can't predict now, but there is always a possibility. We had one of our worst storms in Sept a few years ago, no power for 10 days. I would recommend insurance.

Provided there are no storms- it can be the best this time of year to vacation!

Nags Head would be your fist choice, Kill Devil Hills is second and South Nags Head is 3rd.

There are many good rental companies to choose from. Do a google search for Outer Banks Rentals and start looking.

I'd actually suggest Duck. Any of the reputable rental companies will have excellent houses. The houses are all somewhat similar. We've been renting from Elan Vacations lately, although we have also rented from Resort Quest and Twiddy. We like the Sanderling subdivision. Have a great trip.
