Q. What do we need to bring during our stay?
We recommend these home essentials when staying in one of our vacation rentals in the Outer Banks: coolers, ice, paper products, condiments, basic cleaning supplies, garbage bags, sponges, dishtowels and dishcloths, laundry and dish detergents, coffee and filters, aluminum foil, saran wrap, beach gear & beach towels. Bed and bath linens are provided at most of our vacation rental properties year round, with just a few exceptions.
Q. Do we have to wait until 4:00pm to check-in to your office/why do I have to check in at your office?
You can check-in at our office as early as 9:00am. However, check-in time to the rental property is 4:00pm. We are conveniently located at the foot of the Wright Memorial Bridge, so you can stop by the office as soon as you arrive on the Outer Banks. We like to greet our guests and welcome you to the Outer Banks with a warm smile and a gift bag to make your stay that much more memorable!
Q. How far in advance do you take reservations?
We take tentative reservations up to 2 years in advance with a $50 down payment!
Q. Why should I purchase the travel insurance?
Life is unpredictable, and some vacations need to be cancelled. Travel insurance can provide peace of mind against injuries, illness, and other unexpected events. In the event of a natural disaster, travel insurance plans can help cover the cost. We all experience tough economic times. The loss of a job or other income might mean a trip planned in advance may have to wait. For more information on travel insurance, please visit: https://trippreserver.com/sun-trip-preserver/#faq
