My husband and I are interested in visiting this area in April for a week to 10 days. We would like to be on the beach with a balcony if possible to enjoy the ocean but not always be in the sun. We are very familiar with S.C. Kiawah and Hilton Head efficiency villas and were wondering if this type of accommodation was also available in the Outer Banks. We are independent travellers and like the flexibility of being on our own rather than the meal schedule of an inn and to explore the area around us as our leisure. A good bed and clean accommodation is important to us. Any suggestions would be welcome.
