Welcome to the Outer Banks

Welcome to the Outer Banks.

We're thrilled to welcome you to the Outer Banks.

Few things feed the soul like the warmth of the sun, the crashing of waves, the scent of salt air, and being together with loved ones. We look forward to welcoming you as we’ve done for more than 40 years, with southern hospitality and a commitment to doing our part to ensure a vacation that will bring you many cherished memories for years to come.

Check-In and Check-Out

Check-In begins at 4:00PM
Unless early check-in was confirmed and paid for prior to arrival.

Don't miss your check-in notification!

To ensure you are alerted when it is time to check-in, please confirm your cell phone number on file by logging in to your Twiddy.com account and navigating to the 'My Information' section, or you may download the Twiddy app if you prefer not to receive text messages.

Keyless Homes

Guests staying in keyless homes will not come to the office for check-in. You may go directly to the home once you receive your text message or notification that the home is ready for your arrival. Read our troubleshooting guide for additional information.

Keyed Homes

We will be offering curbside check-in at our Duck and Corolla office for homes with physical keys. You may proceed to the office to pick up your keys to the home once you receive the text message or notification that the home is ready for your arrival.

To find out if your home has keys or keyless entry:

  1. Go to your home’s listing on our website.
  2. Scroll down to the "Amenities".
  3. If the home has keyless entry, it will show under Featured Amenities. (If you do not see this listed, then the home has physical keys.)

You will receive a text message when the home is ready. If you arrive in the area early, please refrain from going to the home or parking in the driveway until you receive the notification. Parking at the home could delay or stop services from being completed.

Maintenance and pool-service may still be ongoing when you arrive at the home. Please allow the technicians to complete their work before entering. Do not get in a pool or hot tub unless it has been serviced.

For reservations that include linens, beds will be made with fitted sheet, flat sheet, and pillowcases. Comforters and blankets are not washed in between every guest. You are welcome to launder prior to using if it fits in the washing machine and dryer at the home. Please do not overload.


Our housekeeping crews are thoroughly trained before preparing any homes and our housekeeping supervision team performs routine quality assurance checks to ensure that cleaning processes are followed. Cleaning crews and staff are supplied with the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

We are utilizing products that are EPA-approved for use against the virus that causes COVID-19. 


For reservations that include linens, beds will be made with fitted sheet, flat sheet and pillow cases, as well as a comforter or blanket. 

Sheets and towels are laundered in a highly automated and sophisticated commercial laundry facility. Beds are made by our housekeepers who are instructed on proper handling of laundry.

Pools and Spas

Pools and hot tubs are cleaned and chemically treated prior to each guest's arrival. A midweek chemical check will be performed as well. 

The CDC has stated there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools, hot tubs or spas, or water playgrounds. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools, hot tubs or spas, and water playgrounds should inactivate the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

Do not get in a pool or hot tub on arrival day unless it has been serviced.

Maintenance Requests

As always, we are here to help should you need assistance during your stay. In an effort to offer service safely and in accordance with social distancing guidelines, expect troubleshooting steps and solutions to be provided to you over the phone prior to a field technician being sent to the home.

If a field technician must be sent to the home, the following steps will be taken:

  • Twiddy Technicians will announce themselves prior to entering the home, and will apply personal protective equipment, if requested.
  • We will ask you to clear the level they will be working on.
  • The area will be disinfected as needed before the technician departs. 

Please keep in mind, local service providers and vendors outside of Twiddy have their own protocols in place.
