Outer Banks Beach Rental

Cove Realty is a business that is devoted to both the owners and renters of beach property in the Outer Banks. With a professional staff (each having years of rental experience) and a fully upgraded, online computer system, our office is able to effectively keep properties up to date and ready to rent.

We realize that vacationing is a special time for family and friends to gather and enjoy time with each other. So as a team, we here at Cove Realty wish to make your vacationing experience as easy and comfortable as possible. All of our rental properties are online and accessible to book featuring up to date pictures (both inside and out) for every unit, seasonal rates, a list of amenities, and weekly availability. So you as the renter will have a complete idea of how the cottage is laid out. We also understand that restaurants, gas, and so forth can add up to a lot of money. This is why we keep our rental prices incredibly reasonable. We will always have a unit that will meet your financial needs. We here at Cove Realty value our renters greatly, so whenever you need assistance, information, or help, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Here at Cove Realty, our owners are like family. We know that a person's home is a very precious thing, and therefore care must be taken when renting property. This is why every cottage in our program is constantly maintained, cleaned, and properly serviced. After you, as the owner, tell us what you want, from allowing pets, young adults, smoking, and so forth, we will make sure to abide by those standards. We also understand that when renting a property to others, an accident may occur. So when made aware of the event (either by tenant or cleaner upon tenants departure), Cove will contact you immediately about the occurrence and offer a healthy solution to solving the problem. Again, our main concern is your happiness, so please call us whenever you have a question, we are always happy to hear from you.

The Cove Realty Team of Experts

President of Cove Realty - Roc F. Sansotta
As President of Cove Realty, Roc Sansotta has personally developed his property management, construction, and realtor teams from the ground up to become one of the Outer Banks most professional, experienced, and dynamic forces in the real estate community. Roc came to the Outer Banks from Northern Virginia where he began his real estate and property management career. He received many national awards for selling and listing properties throughout the area. He loved the Outer Banks and bought his first Vacation rental property here in 1991. He now owns several more houses, including the one he and his wife live in.

Roc took over full ownership of Cove Realty, after having been co-owner, in 1996. He greatly expanded the services offered to home owners and home sellers. Cove Realty currently manages approximately 150 rental properties and lists many homes for sale, while remaining the personal and family-oriented business Roc wants. He also wants to maintain a hands-on approach. Roc believes so strongly in this “hands-on approach” that you will see him working with the maintenance staff clearing debris, laying sandbags, checking on each of his home owners’ properties - every day! This has always been Cove’s strength - a personal approach - and a firm company foundation built on a high standard of integrity and dependability.
