3 Reasons why people are heading to the OBX with their kids this fall

People are bringing their children to OBX to learn remotely


2020 has certainly had its moments but with every new change comes a new opportunity. With school calendars changing considerably, kids not able to do the sports they were planning, and work from home now a reality, taking a trip to the beach for a change of scenery is looking great for a late year beach trip. We can help you find your perfect rental!


What better place to get away from it all than Hatteras Island! Here, it’s easy to get plenty of breathing room, whether its within your big rental home, on a spacious wrap-around deck, or out on the beach. Wherever you go, social distancing laws and best practices are in place to keep your families and our families safe.
