Need help with North Carolina vacation.

i have a week vacation coming up, and dw has asked if we could go to north carolina. she has mentioned this for years (also wants to go to idaho someday), so i figured i'd check it out.

we've never been there before, so i'm just starting out the search process. i'm thinking of a beachy type of vacation.

it doesn't have to be oceanfront, but close, and we don't need an entire house that sleeps 70. just something with a kitchen/kitchenette, and 2 bedrooms .
so the little guy will have his own room, of course.

does anyone know of any good rentals, or at least a nice area for us to help narrow down the search.

TIA for your help.

I'll ask my friend who moved there last summer. They're always out and about exploring the state.
*(PS - jealous you get to go there!!)

We have a place in OBX(outer banks), in Duck, near Corolla, it is a little slice if heaven.
I highly recommend the OBX, though it has gotten a little more commercial in the past 8 or so years, it is still a great quite beach are. Lots of cool local history too with kittyhawk and all. Also a good aquarium.

If I were going to North Carolina, I would choose the mountains. Maybe because I've been there before, and it is so beautiful. My aunt used to live in Asheville, and there's a thriving artists community there. We used to get some beautiful hand-thrown pottery when we visited...
