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:

  • Curbside Check-Ins: Should your vacation rental require a key to gain entry, we will have a curbside service. Our staff will deliver your check-in packet to your vehicle.

Southern Shores Traffic

At the June 16, 2020 Southern Shores Town Council meeting, the Southern Shores Town Council approved implementation of “No-Left Turn Events” for eastbound traffic at the intersection of U.S. Highway 158 and South Dogwood Trail. The authorized dates are June 20th, June 21st, June 27th, June 28th, July 4th, July 5th, July 25th, July 26th, August 1st, and August 2nd from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Appropriate traffic devices placed by the Town of Southern Shores will entirely block the U.S. Highway 158 eastbound left-turn lane at the intersection during these hours. Additional weekends may be considered, and the timing of the closures may be subject to change. The action was taken with prior approval from the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the Town of Kitty Hawk.
