Q. What payment methods do you accept?
A. We accept personal checks and credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover).

Q. What are the dog rules in Nags Head?
A. Dogs are allowed on the beach at all times as long as they are leashed. Owners must clean up after their dogs. Anyone who violates the leash law is subject to a criminal and/or civil penalty. The owner/handler is responsible for and must remove feces and possess a bag/container for waste removal at all times. You can get more information directly from the Town of Nags Head’s website HERE.

Q. Is there a maximum number of people?
A. The maximum number of people allowed is 17. This does not include infants in cribs.

Q. What is the cancellation policy?
A. All cancellations must be received in writing. Tenant is responsible for verifying that Owner has received the cancellation letter. A deposit paid hereunder shall be refunded less a $125 service charge and a 2.5% credit card fee on payments submitted (2.5% fee only applicable if payment was made via credit card), if written notice of cancellation is received on or before sixty (60) days prior to the commencement of the rental occupancy. In the event of cancellation or default after such time period, any remaining balance will still be due and required immediately upon cancellation. After the total balance is paid in full, every effort will be made to re-rent the Property; however if it cannot be re-rented, the rental money will be retained and the security deposit will be returned. If the balance is not paid in full upon cancellation, owner retains the right to keep any deposits paid and re-rent the house without refunding the Tenant because the contract was breached and balance was not paid in full. Tenant will be responsible for any discounts to the rental rate extended to re-rent the Property. Owner urges Tenant to purchase trip cancellation insurance. Please note: Nonpayment of any deposits or balances due may result in reservation cancellation. There is no refund for any cancellation of a reservation made less than sixty (60) days prior to commencement of rental occupancy.
