Introducing the new Twiddy app!

Manage your reservations with the new Twiddy appFamily vacations offer a glimpse of immortality. Time is fleeting and your children grow up too fast. But on vacation for a few cherished moments, your appreciation commands a pause. The rarity of the experience becomes clear. You break the static of routine. In that moment, you create lasting memories for generations. Stories your children will tell again and again. 

So at Twiddy, we take creating more time for your family vacation seriously.

We thought long and hard about how we could provide you, our guests, more time on your vacation. After years evaluating the feedback from our guests and looking at our own vacation experiences, we believe we have come up with the best solution to maximize your time on the Outer Banks. And it delivers Twiddy & Company's southern hospitality right in the palm of your hand. Introducing our new Twiddy app.

No more headaches over sharing and consolidating your precious family photos. No more passing around a piece of paper with the WiFi password. No more phone calls from everyone in the group asking for the sacred rental code. It’s a frustrating experience that takes away your time from enjoying your vacation with family and friends.

Our new app is available, exclusively for Twiddy & Company guests, on both iOS App Store & Google Play Store right now and you can also visit our app page and text yourself a link directly to the App Store’s listing We’re confident it will be a valuable addition to your Outer Banks vacation.  

Some of Our App Features:

Access & Share Your Home’s Information: Login to the app and easily share the reservation with the entire group to give everyone access to the information they will need to enjoy their Outer Banks vacation. Everyone in your party arriving at different times? No need to leave the beach to let them in, they'll have access to the address with maps of the area, key codes, WiFi passwords and more.

Share & Store Your Photos with Friends and Family: Securely and privately your entire group can share, view, and favorite in one place.  No more uploading to various photos services, messaging each and everyone their favorite pictures, or worse, not seeing them at all. Everyone can contribute to an album that Twiddy will store in the cloud insuring they will always be there when you want them.

The new app rocks!  
by OBXholla

This app made vacation easy! I was able to share my reservation with everyone in the house and we were all able to share our photos right from the app. It was great to be able to check our WiFi password right within the app along with getting a notification that our house was ready! Another addition that sets Twiddy's hospitality apart from all the rest!
