The Outer Banks has just experienced one of its busiest years in living memory, and 2021 is going to be even busier. The information on this page is always changing as we receive news from the State and Dare and Currituck counties regarding weather, COVID-19 or anything that can impact your vacation. We’re excited to be able to serve you and your family! See you on the beach!

For county-wide updates, please scroll to the ‘Updates’ section below our “For Our Guests” section.

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.
