Useful Rental Tools

The Outer Banks has always been a wonderful destination for those seeking a relaxing vacation filled with sand, surf and sun. The beautiful beaches combined with great restaurants, history, outdoor activities and nightlife have made the Outer Banks an even more popular destination in recent years. As the word has spread, rental properties are quickly booked many months in advance. To make renting a beach getaway as easy as possible, Southern Shores Realty has put together some tools so you can find the perfect time and location for your beach vacation.

Looking for a specific week but everything is booked?

The Re-Rent page  is a hot spot for rentals. Cancellations are posted to the re-rent page as soon as they become available. We have been seeing homes re-rent in record time so check this page frequently. If you see something you like, we suggest booking as soon as possible.

Looking for a weekend getaway?

Partial stays are available for booking 10 days before desired check-in for select properties. The properties that allow for partial stays can be found on our website by clicking here.

Looking for a pet-friendly rental?

Is a vacation without your pet really a vacation? Southern Shores Realty offers many pet-friendly rentals so you and ALL of your family members can enjoy vacation together. Find the perfect rental on our pet-friendly rental page.

Looking for a last-minute deal?

Save more on rental fees with special discounts on select properties and select dates. Great deals are available on our Outer Banks Rental Specials page. Again, check back frequently as updates are made often.

Looking for a discounted rate?

We get it, vacation is expensive! When booking your property online be sure to check for available discounts. Many Southern Shores Realty properties offer discounts for military, senior citizens, first responders and educators. In addition to regular discounts, properties may have special promotions for specific weeks. Check out last minute specials to find a current list of properties with discounted rates. Discounts offered are property-specific and subject to change so be sure to act quickly if you find something you like! If you have questions, call us! We are happy to help you find the property that meets your needs.

Visiting next year?

Great! Now is the time to book! It's never too early to start planning your next Outer Banks getaway. Check out the 2024 Rentals Page to view properties that have been posted and are available to book. Properties are being added every day so be sure to check back often!

Want a specific rental for the future?

Southern Shores Realty offers priority rental for guests returning to the same property for the same week the following year. Guests have until check-out to get first dibs on the same week in the same rental for the following year. If you're the current tenant, you can easily book again using this page. But-- what if you have your eyes set on a particular home that you didn't rent in the previous year? We are accepting requests! This form can be filled out and we will make the reservation for you should it become available. Please thoroughly read information contained in the webpage before proceeding with the request.
