So, a little birdie tells us that you have planned to spend some well-earned vacation time on the Outer Banks. If you already know how and when to visit, there’s something you may still need help with. Where.
There are a bunch of interesting and picturesque places that you can stay at, from Corolla, Duck, Kitty Hawk, Southern Shores, Kill Devil Hills, to Nags Hills.
Starting your search
The journey begins at some people’s favorite place … vacation rental sites.
After choosing the perfect room, the vacationer will need to make a reservation for the room and then exchange mailing payments for at least a month or two, but now technology is so advanced that bookings have become more convenient.
All you need to do is to go to a booking site, filter the listings to quickly find exactly what you’re looking for, choose your desired location and book it. These online sites have multiple reviews from other users too.
You can also book your reservation by calling the management company.
A variety of rental options
On the Outer Banks, you have a good number of vacation rental options, from houses that have a small bedroom for one person to places which have more than 20 bedrooms, beach mansions, and even penthouses. Depending on the number of people on a trip, you can book a suitable room.
The rental facilities with weekly booking are also available with a small house on the ocean. Vacation Rental homes have the highest share in the rental market with different options according to your needs. You can get a small house with some 2-4 bedrooms that have the best comfy bedrooms and cozy furnishing. Most of the cottages available here are well-maintained and are budget-friendly.
Vacation Homes with facilities closer to a five-star resort are also available. The bedrooms in these types of rentals range from 5-25 and even more. The rooms are well developed and provide world-class services like private pools, hot tubs, and entertainment centers. Facilities like dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines, and TV/DVD players are also on-offer.
The benefits of renting
There are plenty of benefits to renting a home, but the primary one is that you can enjoy your private space and have the same conveniences as you have at home, like a kitchen, living area, and other areas where you can relax.
Finances wise, you will be surprised to know that the cost is often lower than at a hotel for the same number of people. Increasing the property size cost increases, and if amenities remain the same, the price decreases. Apart from the house and amenities rates, vacationers also need to pay the taxes and additional fees for pets, if any at all!
Figure out your insurance
Usually, companies or house owners ask to purchase trip insurance, which costs 1-5% of the rental and helps in situations like staying more due to illness or hurricanes and storms. We recommend you to take this as it helps a lot and saves your money as well.
That’s all that there is to our vacation home renting guide. This should give you enough to begin with for your next Outer Bank trip. Renting has never been this easy, and with such a variety of alternatives to choose from, vacationing is certainly a tad bit easier now. Happy holidaying and don’t forget to let us know how it went!
