I made that mistake with Surf and Sound, never again. Pls look at the review on Google. Very shady operation.
Our current booking and our dealing have been superb. they have given us the option of a full refund or postpone to any date we desire. I know that there are many of us out there who are waiting for the good news. Just can't wait to be down there again.
I would be super careful with my money and where it goes and will remember those who stick with their customers in these difficult times.

That is the 3500$ question. We have a house booked in May driving down from Ontario. Our 15th yearly trip. If Dare county restrictions are lifted but Canadian usa border still closed no insurance. That is according to the insurance company through Surf and Sound. Surf and Sound have been less than helpful and quite frankly downright aggressive and rude when we called. Bad situation. I would suggest not booking at this time. Buyer beware.

I checked Outer Beaches Realty, is the same. If you booked before Mar 17 or can't cross the border you are out of luck. Maybe Canadians should boycott Hatteras for few years and we shall see how they pay their mortgages. Then come back and get those houses on the cheap like they used to be before windsurfing.

This policy sounds encouraging if you had booked prior to March 17th??



Their clients could still get screwed if state, or federal, or international restrictions are not lifted prior to whenever the county restrictions are lifted. Unless they make concessions for that in the future too.

Most Canadians will have May 2 or 9 check in to come back on Victoria Day. I very much doubt the border will be open this early.

1. Most likely Hatteras will be closed through April at the least and likely into early May. The State of NC has mandated rental properties must refund your rental if local travel restrictions are in place.

2. Property owners and rental companies can’t cover every possible option of why you can’t get to Hatteras. If Hatteras is open for business and you can’t get there due to international travel restrictions, cancellation of flights,etc then that’s the renters problem and not the rental companies.

This tread is just a lot of complaining. You should have something more important to worry about. I had vacations planned for sking in Salt Lake City and kiteboarding in Hatteras. Luckily I was reimbursed for both of these home rentals but I didn’t expect it nor would I have complained to the world if I was not.

US has closed it's borders so maybe these realties could get refund from US government and not stealing it from me.

I don't care about my trip to Hatteras I just want my money back, OK.

There is no airport in Hatteras, you drive there. Before it was coined Canadian hole it was just a hole. Again, the issue is not if I want to go there or not. The issue is, these realties are assholes.

There is an airport in Frisco and at least my realty company did me a solid.
