These are the most luxurious Outer Banks Airbnbs to keep on your radar for a fall getaway.

We hope you love the spaces and stays we recommend! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication.

The Outer Banks in fall might be less hectic than in summer, but if you really want peace and tranquility, head to the small coastal town of Rodanthe. Quieter and more remote than the Outer Banks’ northerly destinations, Rodanthe is known for its easy access to the beach and the sound, giving you unimpeded views of both sunrises and sunsets. The recently-renovated Aloha Too is just three houses away from the ocean, has beach views from the deck, and sleeps seven people.
