If the home is ready prior to the 4 PM check-in time, you will receive a text notification making you aware. Please rely on this notification system for early access as much of our staff spends turnover day in the field prepping houses for your arrival. 

Access instructions will be sent via email. Some homes may require physical keys while most will have keyless entry. If you have any questions regarding your specific home's access instructions you may call 866-938-7497.

What to Pack

Yes, all linens in the home will be provided at no additional cost to you. Our laundry services package the linens after laundering and they will not be opened until they are placed inside your home.

We do ask that guests bring beach towels, as the towels provided cannot be used at the beach or pool. If you're bringing a pet, don't forget to bring a towel for them, too! 

We provide one bath towel and one wash cloth per guest allowed at the property as well as two hand towels per bathroom. The kitchen will have two hand towels and hot pads.

While You're Here

No. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the premise of the rental home. Cigarettes, cigars, pipes, marijuana, drugs of any kind and vaping are prohibited.  Upon your departure, if there are signs of smoke remaining at the property, fees will be charged to clean and repair the home of any damage.

***No firearms or fireworks are allowed on the premises.***

The leaseholder is financially responsible for damage done to the property beyond normal wear and tear. Coastal Carolina Vacations reserves the right to run a credit card authorization to cover any damages to the property. You will be notified of any excessive cleaning charges or damages made and the amount that will be charged to your credit card IF necessary.

No, they must be taken in daily. Please remove your personal & rental items each day from the beach, not to be left over night. Coastal Carolina Vacations is not responsible for any personal or rental items left on the beach over night. Outer Banks beaches are enforcing a new policy as of 2013 to permanently remove items left on the beach overnight, not to be recovered.

Some of Coastal Carolina Vacations properties provide a charcoal or gas grill for our guests to use while occupying the home for their vacation week (see listing for each property to see which is provided as sometimes this can change during the course of the year). Guests are responsible for cleaning and removing the remnants from around and on the grill after usage. Grills are not permitted to be moved or placed on the wooden decks of the house due to the hazard of fire. These rules also apply to large propane deep fryers. The heat and grease can cause extensive damage to screens, wood & siding on the home as a result of being placed or left too close and of course also present a fire hazard. Grills and fryers should only be used on concrete surfaces away from the house for safety’s sake

For keyless entry homes, your code will expire promptly at 10 am. 

You're on vacation so you should be relaxing all the way through check-out! Our cleaning teams will be readying the home for the next guests so no need to wash any of the linens. We do ask that you strip the sheets and pillow cases (leave the mattress pads in place) and leave them piled on top of the beds. Gather the bath linens into the bathrooms as well. Don't forget to take all of your personal items and food when you leave. If there are non-perishable items you wish to donate to the local food pantry, you may drop those items off at the office on your way out or simply leave them on the kitchen counter. 

**See "What are the check-out procedures" for more details.**

All food should be removed from the fridge and kitchen cabinets and disposed of properly.

Place trash in exterior property trash cans.

Dishes must be washed and put away or loaded into the dishwasher and started.

The thermostat must be set to 75 degrees for AC or 55 degrees for heat.

Ensure all windows and doors are securely locked.

Coastal Carolina Vacations will not be responsible for any items left behind. Our team will attempt to locate your items and if found will contact you to set up a return. You will be responsible for the cost of postage to return your items. Items not claimed within 30 days of check-out will be donated to a local charity.

Pet Owners

If your home is listed as pet-friendly, absolutely! Here are some tips below to ensure your pet has a great vacation, too. **Please note, only dogs are allowed in pet-friendly homes. No other animal types will be permitted.**

- Bring a leash and keep your dog on it while outside of your home (most municipalities here have strict leash laws).

- Sand and pavement get extremely hot during the Summer. If you can't walk on the sand or pavement barefooted, neither can they! Early mornings and evenings are the best times for walks.

- Fleas and ticks are prevalent on the Outer Banks. Ensure your pet is protected prior to your stay.

- Bring plenty of fresh water for your pet to drink. Salt water will cause vomiting and diarrhea if drunk. 

- In the case of an emergency, there are several local veterinary hospitals that can assist you during the day. If you happen to have a problem at night, options are available but very limited. The closest 24-hour staffed emergency clinic is at least an hour away in Chesapeake, Virginia. 

Even Fido loves a great beach day! Just be aware that every town has their own set of rules and restrictions for pet owners. Make sure you clean up after your pet and deposit it in the appropriate containers.

Service Animals, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), includes animals that have been trained to perform specific tasks for individuals with a disability. These tasks are typically assisting those with hearing or sight impairment, assisting an individual who suffers from seizures, and assists those who suffer from Post-Traumatic disorders. Service animals are allowed in any of Coastal Carolina Vacations properties, but we ask that the leaseholder makes us aware that a service animal will be present prior to check-in.

Emotional Support Animals (ESA), also known as a “comfort animal,” is a dog that belongs to a person who is emotionally or psychologically (psychiatrically) disabled. The person’s doctor (a licensed mental health professional) has determined that the presence of the animal is necessary for the person’s mental health and that they are considered disabled as a result. The licensed mental health professional must provide Coastal Carolina Vacations a letter of prescription stating the dog is necessary for the normal day to day functioning of the disabled person.

Emotional Support Animals are allowed in any of Coastal Carolina Vacations properties, but we ask that the leaseholder makes us aware that an emotional support animal will be present prior to check-in.

A Therapy Animal (usually a dog) has been obedience trained and screened for its ability to interact favorably with humans and other animals. The primary purpose of a Therapy Animal is to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, hospices, disaster areas, and to people with learning difficulties. Although Therapy Animals provide a very important therapeutic service, they are NOT considered “service animals” and they and their handlers have no protections under federal law (ADA, the Fair Housing Act, Air Carrier Access Act, etc.).

A Companion Animal (usually a dog) describes an animal that provides only companionship as a pet, rather than performing useful or necessary tasks. They are NOT considered “service animals” and they and their handlers have no protections under federal law (ADA, the Fair Housing Act, Air Carrier Access Act, etc.).

Those with Therapy Animals or Companion Animals are not allowed in non-pet friendly properties. If the animal is a dog or cat we do have a large selection of pet-friendly properties to choose from.

Due to the Outer Banks’ diverse ecosystem, common insects such as ants, mosquitoes, palmetto bugs, midges, house flies and spiders are prevalent in the area. Factors such as rain, wind speed/direction, and temperatures will influence the likelihood of encountering these pests in or around your rental home. While most homeowners participate in quarterly pest control treatments, there is no way to completely prevent or predict these local nuisances. A few ways you can help mitigate common pests during your vacation are:

-Keeping doors and windows closed as much as possible

-Placing trash into the designated receptacles frequently & following local trash pickup schedules

-Properly storing any food items & cleaning up after cooking or grilling

-Turning off excessive lighting, especially in the evening

-Avoid leaving buckets or items that can create standing water

Coastal Carolina is not licensed to spray or treat for pests and bugs; however, we can arrange for additional pest control services should they be needed. *Please know that flying insects such as mosquitoes and midge flies are not treatable*

What is a Palmetto Bug? (aka Water Bug)

While it’s true, the palmetto bugs are in the cockroach family, palmetto bugs are not an indicator of an unsanitary home (they are not equivalent to the German cockroach) and are simply not 100% preventable.   Quite common in the Outer Banks, these unsightly pests are found both outside, and often times inside, the home as they are driven to damp, dark areas (such as lower-level bathrooms or closets) due to harsh weather conditions. While alarming to see, they are not harmful. Should you have an issue with excessive palmetto bugs, please contact our office for assistance.

What are Midges?

Midges are small, winged flies that often breed and travel in swarms. They are more common in the spring and summer months, attracted to bright lights and heat. While they are a nuisance, they do not spread disease and thankfully have a short life span of around 24 hours. If a swarm is in the area, it is common to find large piles of expired midges around the exterior of your home. Since these flies are a food source for other pests, like spiders, daily sweeping of outdoor areas is one of the best ways to deter other bugs that may be attracted by them. Unfortunately, there is no preventative treatment for midges.

The Outer Banks has a very beautiful, and fragile, shoreline. In efforts to protect and preserve the shoreline, Beach Nourishment projects are essential. The process involves dredging sand from the ocean floor off-shore to be pumped on to the shoreline in an effort to widen the beach shoreline. The schedule of these projects is government regulated. For more in depth information, visit the Dare County website here

Reservations are made on a first come, first serve basis, meaning that when the property is open on the market, it is open to all of the rental market.
