Why should I pre-reserve a home?

Best Selection

Booking early means you have more choices. Get the location, amenities, and view that you want.

Rebook Your Ideal Home

Already staying in the ideal home for your group? Most homes offer the first right of refusal to secure it again for next year by booking early.

Plan Vacation Activities Sooner

Pre-reserving your home allows you extra time to plan fun things to do on your next vacation.

When can I pre-reserve a home?

Current Guests

For most homes, the same home and time frame is held for current-year guests until the Monday following their departure. If you are a current guest, go to your account and look for the button to pre-reserve.

First-Come First-Serve

On the Tuesday following the current-year guest’s departure, most homes are offered on a first come, first served basis for anyone to pre-reserve.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the cost to book an Advance Property Hold?

A non-refundable fee of $50.00 pre-reserves the home until the lease is sent. At that time, the initial payment is required to confirm the reservation. Please note that the $50.00 fee is not applied to the rental fee.

Select homes have a fee higher than $50.00. This higher Advance Property Hold fee is listed the home's description. This fee is non-refundable, non-transferable and holds the home off the market until the lease is sent. At that time, the initial payment is required to confirm the reservation. A portion of the Advance Property Hold fee over $50.00 is applied to the rental fee. Please contact our office for more details.


How do I book an Advance Property Hold?

Time is of the essence when requesting Advance Property Holds! For current-year guests interested in holding the same home for the same week next year, it is best to place your hold and make payment while still on the Outer Banks. If this is not convenient, guests should either book online by using the link in the email sent to the leaseholder or call our office by the Monday following departure. On the Tuesday morning following departure, the home is available to pre-reserve online or by phone on a first come, first served basis. Availability is often limited due to the Advance Property Holds already placed by departing guests, so it is best to keep several vacation home choices in mind.

To place an Advance Property Hold, please book online or call our office at (866) 457-1190.


Is the Advance Property Hold fee refundable?

Advance Property Holds are not reservations, but tentative holds that are subject to the following conditions: 1) the availability of the home in Twiddy's rental program; 2) the reserved dates being available; 3) the execution of a lease, including the receipt of all applicable rents and fees, etc. In the event that either the home is not in Twiddy's rental program or if the reserved dates are not available, Your Advance Property Hold fee will be refunded. In any other case, the Advance Property Hold fee is NON-REFUNDABLE and is NOT applied toward the future rent or fees as the case may be.


When should I call Twiddy to book my week for next year?

Guests interested in pre-reserving a home for a future year time frame should book online or call our office as early as the Tuesday following the departure date of the current year to request an Advance Property Hold.


Do I need to let you know if I am holding a wedding in the home that I am booking?

Weddings are permitted in homes that allow Special Events. Please notify us at the time of booking your Advance Property Hold if you plan to hold a wedding or other special event during your stay. A special event fee may apply, depending on the house, and will be included in your total as shown on your Vacation Rental Agreement.
