Plan ahead and pre-reserve the home of your dreams.
At Twiddy, we have over 1,000 homes to choose from – homes of all sizes and shapes, from Corolla to Nags Head. These OBX homes begin to book up as early as 51 weeks in advance (and some book even earlier!), so it's important to start planning in advance.

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 book my week for next year?
Guests who are a current year guest can book for next year NOW! You have from the time you book your current year reservation until the Monday following your departure to have first choice on the same week for next year. Guests who are not a current year guest and 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.
If a holiday falls within my week, do I get the first right to rebook the same holiday week next year?
Not necessarily. Your first right of refusal refers to the comparable calendar week for next year. If the holiday falls during a different calendar week next year, you are not able to hold that week until the guest staying that week this year departs and does not rebook. For example, if you are staying the week of March 30-April 6, 2024, and Easter is on March 31, 2024, the week you have first dibs on is March 29-April 5, 2025. Easter is on April 20, 2025, so to book Easter week in 2025, you must wait for the guests who are staying during the week of April 20-27, 2024 to depart because those guests have the first right of refusal to book the week of April 19-26, 2025.
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.
