SURF OR SOUND REALTY – Your Peace of Mind is important to us
We have never been more excited to welcome you to a Hatteras Island vacation. Miles of wide-open beaches affords everyone space to spread out, play in the surf, and breathe in the warm, salty, sea breeze. The southern charm and hospitality that Hatteras Island is known for has not faded, and is still visible - even from a short distance away. We look forward to seeing you at the beach!
Relax in our premier rental homes knowing:
Our homes are professionally cleaned prior to your stay based on recommendations from the CDC and using products approved by the EPA for use against COVID-19. Special attention is focused on disinfecting the kitchen surfaces and appliances, bathroom surfaces and installations, and many other high-touch areas throughout the home including door handles, light switches and remote controls.
All bedspreads, comforters, pillow shams, and blankets can be found folded and placed in the bedroom closets.
All bed linens and towels, for homes that provide them, are professionally laundered and sanitized by our professional laundry service prior to delivery to your rental home.
Enjoy full-service support while limiting interactions:
We offer keyless entry systems enabling a remote check-in and check-out process that does not require a visit to our office.
If a repair is required during your stay, our maintenance technicians will minimize exposure inside the home and will be wearing masks and disposable gloves.
Our offices in Avon and Salvo are open for your convenience. We thank you for wearing a mask and practicing social distancing when visiting our offices and limiting your office visit to 2 members of your party.
More payment options means more peace of mind:
We understand that budgeting can be difficult during this time, and we offer no interest payment plans ranging from 1, 2, 3 or 4 easy payments. You choose your method of payment and how you would like to spread out your payments over time.
Hatteras Island has never been a better vacation choice.
