Base price
We live and work in the hustle and bustle of the D.C. metro area and had always enjoyed visiting the Outer Banks with its eclectic mix of activities ranging from familiar to unique, usually staying in hotels due to time and budget constraints. When the opportunity arose for us to purchase a classic beachbox in need of some TLC, we jumped at the opportunity to own a "bit of the beach" and to share it with others so that they can experience a piece of the magic that is the heart of the Outer Banks.
