More About Us

Our Outer Banks Vacation Innovations Over The Years

  • We were the first Outer Banks rental company to provide linens (beds made) as a standard amenity.
  • We were the first Outer Banks rental company to offer floor plans for all of our homes.
  • In 1997 we became the first Outer Banks rental company (and one of the first in the country) to offer real time availability and reservations via Internet.
  • In 2006 we deployed wireless Internet access in our homes and now all of our homes provide high speed wireless Internet access.
  • In 2007 we transitioned to using revolutionary electrolyzed cleaning products for use in our homes eliminating the need to use harsh chemicals. This important change critical to help in the preserving the fragile ecosystems of the Outer Banks shoreline and wildlife and is part of an overall philosophy of promoting environmentally responsible business practices, including recycling and use of recycled products.
  • In 2008 we initiated an innovative wait list program for guests.
  • In 2009 we launched our new web site, a state-of-the-art, user-friendly system built by in-house technical experts, which makes it simple for our guests to find and book vacation properties, print leases, and make payments on line.
  • In 2010 we became the first company to offer guests the ability to plan vacations much earlier in the prior year with the ability to secure a property with a 10% down payment.
  • We continue to offer cutting edge technology which gives our guests and owners unparalleled information about the properties we manage and the services we provide.

Any home can have problems that arise from time to time; what counts is how quickly the management company takes care of those problems. Our customer care organization boasts a staff of full time field maintenance technicians and in-house coordinators that can address a wide range of problems. We want your stay with us to be as carefree as possible!

To ensure that your home is properly prepared prior to your arrival, we manage our own cleaning and inspection staff. All of our cleaning teams are trained by our customer care department and each is required to follow a rigorous set of guidelines as they clean your rental home.
