Our family used to go to the Sanderling Inn at the Outer Banks, NC for vacation. You rent a room, which can come with a kitchenette, and you can dine there. The food is very good. I found it to be more of a vacation than renting a house, where you have the same chores as you do at home. I saw they had a million dollar make over and now have a large swimming pool.
But the beach is what you go for. The water is warm and the people are friendly.
