Vacation Rentals in Elizabeth City

Posted on 10/30/2020 by Carrie Barker

Elizabeth City offers more than traditional hotels and inns—with individual vacation rentals available from our friendly locals, the variety is endless! No matter your interests, budget, or group size, Elizabeth City has options that will fit your needs. 

Newly renovated apartments in the downtown historic district are perfect for travelers seeking privacy and independence. The apartments have kitchens, but our downtown dining options are mere steps away! Sample southern food with a modern twist at Hoppin’ Johnz New South Cuisine or delicious tapas at The Mills Downtown Bistro. Morning java can be found at the new and fantastic The SweetEasy.

Those seeking unique accommodations in our beautiful city can head to the waterfront for a few nights on a floating home-away-from-home! Watch the sunset over the water with your own private view from a houseboat—while still enjoying the convenience of being close to the shopping and dining of downtown. Walk down Main Street to discover local artists at Arts of the Albemarle and head along the waterfront to the Museum of the Albemarle to learn more about the history and culture of northeastern North Carolina. Fuel up for active days at long-time local favorite Muddy Waters Coffeehouse and take a lunch break for some locally-owned international fare like Big Boss Burritos for made-to-order burritos, Japanese-style sushi at Toyama’s, or the tasty flavors of the Caribbean at Island Breeze Grill.

Do you need accommodations for the whole family? Entire houses are available for rent in Elizabeth City—giving your family the flexibility to spread out and relax. Houses downtown allow easy access to downtown life and activities like Port Discover for little kids to play and learn or self-guided historic walking tours for the whole family. Outside of the downtown area allows a family to drive to the local city parks like Fun Junktion, which boasts a large playground, splash pad and more, or state parks like the Dismal Swamp State Park where the family can hike trails or rent kayaks to explore the Dismal Swamp Canal.

For the truly adventurous who are open to spontaneity and fun, We Out Here is for you. Hosts Ron and Linea will accommodate you in a beautiful, spacious downtown apartment and plan your adventures for you—as surprises! Revitalizing explorations are created just for your party.

Our local bed & breakfasts and inns also rent through Airbnb, so check out all of Elizabeth City’s variety of comfortable, unique options in one place!
