3. Get the house you WANT

One of the most important reasons to book early is to guarantee that you get the house you want and need! If you’re trying to get together a large group for a much needed family beach vacation on the Outer Banks, then you’re going to need a certain number of bedrooms, specific amenities, a particular location, or even multiple houses side by side or close together. Do you want to bring the family pup along? You’ll have to check out our pet friendly rentals that are perfect for you and your furry friend. If you wait too long to book your OBX getaway, you may miss out. The most popular OBX homes tend to book early, so get yours reserved now!


4. More time to plan

Once you’ve reserved the perfect vacation home, you can spend the rest of time having fun planning what you want to see and do on the Outer Banks. From our famous Outer Banks lighthouses, cultural activities, and historical attractions to watersports, world-class fishing, and the freshest seafood you’ll ever taste – there is plenty to do on the Outer Banks!

5. Having Something To Look Forward To

Who does’t love having something like a beach vacation to look forward to?! Studies have proven that having an experience to look foward to increases happiness levels in some people. It only makes sense that the longer you have to look forward to a vacation. The more anticipation that builds, the happier you’ll be!
