Moore Island Properties, LLC, was founded in 2000 by Sam Moore, a long-time Outer Banks builder/hotelier. Having had success in the hospitality industry with the Island Guest House on Roanoke Island, Sam decided to expand his company into an under served niche of the vacation rental business by offering attractive, intimate, and affordable vacation rentals on idyllic, romantic islands.

As a builder, Sam personally brings to life his plans for these unique cottages, overseeing drafting, construction, and finishing. Comfort and luxury are his motto, and each MIP cottage features the finest amenities and furnishings available.

Says Sam, "We come from a family of custom home builders. I am the third generation and have always been taught to focus on detail. With this in mind, we apply this same approach in our lodging business."

With the completion of two Roanoke Island cottages this year, and the addition of the Bahamas cottage next year, Moore Island Properties is well on its way to fulfilling Sam's vision of romantic island getaways.
