Peace of Mind

Your Peace of Mind is Always on Our Minds

As travel restrictions ease and vacation planning resumes, peace of mind is a top priority. So, it's no surprise that - during these challenging times - Hatteras Island and the Outer Banks have emerged as the most resilient travel destination in the US

More than ever, travelers are seeking small town comfort and nature vacations. This is fueling a pace of bookings for our premier private vacation homes never before seen on these shores.

Between the natural advantages of our beautiful remote location, a relatively small number of accommodations, and the efforts we are making to further improve our guests' experience during these trying times, we hope you will find your best peace of mind, here on Hatteras Island.

cleaning supplies

Our homes are professionally cleaned prior to your stay based on recommendations from the CDC, which includes disinfecting the kitchen surfaces, kitchen appliances, bathrooms and other high-touch areas.
Our cleaners use products approved by the EPA for use against COVID-19.


Linens and towelsWe have removed all bedspreads, comforters, pillow shams, and blankets. They are folded and in the bedroom closets. Feel free to use these items, however, be aware that they are not regularly laundered.

Sheets and towels, if this home provides them, have been delivered prior to your arrival and placed on the beds - still wrapped in plastic - sanitized and fresh from our professional laundry service.
