Hello, I live in upstate NY and Iam moving to the mid atlantic to pursue proffessional goals. I am 48 and single and my 18 year old daughter is off to college this month. I am looking for a very inexpensive place to live for October 1 st. A winter or year round rental is fine. I will be writing, and any small space would be fine. I smoke but only outside and I have no pets.
I just want a "Beach Shack", even a "Beach Shack Room" I want to spend beteen 400.00 and 500.00 a month. Anyone know if this is possible or anyone that has a small space thats livable and available?

I doubt you will find anything in the price area you are looking for. 1 BR efficiencies run around $800 a month. I would start with the rental companies and check the Outer Banks Craigslist rentals

Avoid ALL the rental companies like the plague! Unless you want to spend way too much for way too little and just get screwed by them.
ONLY rent from local owners as they will charge you a fair price and be here when you need them. My suggestion is to look and post on craigslist for a room-mate or shared space as many individuals like having a winter renter to help with expenses when the season is over and money is stretched. Also contact the local churches to see if members/friends of the congregation know of anyone that is looking to fill a rental space as they often do not get advertised. Good luck and we look forward to having you here.

There are some nice 2 bed/2 bath apartments in Manteo that I believe Sam at the Island Guest House rents out. They used to be $500/month years and years ago.I am not sure of current rates.
Sam also has other rentals locally. Here is his site for short term rentals. Get up with him to check on availability.
I believe he also has long term/year round rentals.
You will love the OBX. I grew up near Syracuse. I would not go thru another NY winter if you paid me.

It looks like my last post did not show up. Sorry if this is a duplicate.
Try Sam at Island Guest house. I believe he has long term rentals as well as his short term lodging.
I grew up near Syracuse/Utica area. Would not go thru another NY winter if you paid me. You will love the OBX. Rent is high but the quality of life is even better.
