We hope you’re ready for a fun and relaxing family vacation! The cleanliness of our homes has always been top priority for us, and now more than ever. Due to the increased popularity of the Outer Banks, more homes need to be serviced between check-out and check-in. If your check-in time is later than usual, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are always working as hard as we can to get your vacation started as soon as possible.

Our goal is, and will continue to be, to provide a safe, welcoming and clean environment for all of our guests.

Checking In:

  • Keyless Entry, Office Check-in or After Hours: A vast majority of our homes are keyless entry and you will receive your check-in instructions via email a few days before your check-in date. For the few homes that require a physical key to gain access, you will be instructed to visit the Resort Realty office closest to your vacation home. Should you be arriving after our offices have closed for the day, your check-in packet will be located in the convenient box on the wall beside the front door of the office.

Traffic Tips

The summer months see large traffic increases as more holiday makers make their way to the Outer Banks to enjoy time at the beach with family and friends. Explore helpful summer traffic advice here. Every year the town of Southern Shores establishes new traffic rules to alleviate congestion on check-in days. These new summer rules change from year-to-year.
