2022 Guest Information ~ Checking In, Beach Nourishment, Clean & Comfortable Vacation Homes


Welcome to Oak Island, NC!

Like you, the Coastal Vacation Resorts team has adjusted to the new way of life, business, and recreation the pandemic has given us. We’ve implemented extensive processes that are critical to creating one-of-a-kind, fun, safe and memorable vacations for our guests.

While we all know and appreciate there are no absolutes in the new normal, we assure you that we are doing all we possibly can to offer private retreats for families that are safe, clean, and spacious. Our practices may have changed since your last visit so we hope these frequently asked questions along with their answers will guide you through an upcoming peaceful stay with us at Coastal Vacation Resorts Oak Island.

What will the check-in process be like?

Our main office building is currently open to the public, you may check-in at our front desk or if you prefer a contactless check-in process, we will place your packet in a box on the exterior of the building next to our main entrance between 3:00pm and 5:00pm, and Coastal Vacation Resorts will phone you if your home is ready before 3:00pm.

As such, please make arrangements for restroom usage before your arrival. All vacationing guests are encouraged to call (910) 278-5405 or email [email protected] ahead of their scheduled check-in with any concerns or questions. Our team is ready to support and serve our guests MONDAY – SATURDAY from 9 am – 5 pm.

Have we enhanced your cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting practices?

Absolutely! Coastal Vacation Resorts is committed to providing a clean, comfortable, and safe vacation home to our valued guests using hospital-grade sanitizers provided by our commercial cleaning product supplier. Before check-in, all rental accommodations are thoroughly and professionally cleaned followed by an in-depth inspection. We are always evaluating and improving our techniques for cleaning and disinfecting commonly used surfaces like doorknobs, locks, light switches, television remotes, handles, and other high touch areas.

To give our guests peace of mind during their stay we encourage them to take even greater measures if they wish, by adding the following suggested items to their packing list:

  • Blankets and pillows.
  • Toilet tissue, paper towels, hand soaps, and disinfectant cleaners.
  • Food and Beverages.

Are local stores and restaurants open?

Yes, NC restaurants are open to dine-in customers. Also, all of the wonderful restaurants in the Oak Island / Southport area are continuing to serve delicious take-out meals for the entire family, with some offering nightly specials and home delivery options. Support our local businesses by dining in or ordering take-out during your stay!

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Oak Island and may your family be blessed with a comfortable, relaxing vacation.

Will I have direct beach access due to beach nourishment activity?

Beautiful Oak Island experienced major storm surge damage from Hurricanes Florence and Isaias. Our 2022 vacationers staying in the areas of the island where restoration work is underway may experience some noise, illumination at night, and direct beach access closures due to pipelines used for sand distribution. Ahead of your vacation, please check the Town of Oak Island’s website for updates to your specific rental home’s location relative to ongoing work. Here are few links that you may find helpful:

We ask for your understanding while beach amenities are being restored and encourage you to explore other areas of the island if you find work is actively underway near your vacation home.
