Personally, I stay in Duck. It's a bit north but quiet and quaint. Not quite as touristy as some of the other areas. There are many places to stay there. My family has a time share at Barrier Island Station. Don't know if they have rentals. You may be able to get just a week if someone isn't using their unit and wants to rent it out.

I like Duck, and generally stay at Ships Watch. Off season, which is from mid September on, rates are not too bad, but you have to rent for a week. Off season, don't be afraid to make an offer. A lot of places are vacant. I don't know of too many overnight accommodations in Duck, Corolla, etc. Most of these are around Nags Head. When pricing, remember that you are typically renting a large, fully equipped home.

I used to live in Southeastern Virginia, so the Outer Banks area was the closest. It has definitely gotten more commercial over the years, but there are still plenty of areas to get away from it all. It really depends on how much activity you want. If you are going in the fall, keep in mind there's a chance of hurricanes. Corolla and Duck are probably the quietest, Kitty Hawk and Nags Head are busier.
