Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer guest pickup?

Yes, we offer FREE Guest Pick Up and FREE Golf Cart transport in the Tri-Villages of Rodanthe, Waves, & Salvo.

What about child safety?

All vehicles will accept child safety seats, provided by the rental guest. 

Why can’t I drive on the Dunes?
You cannot drive on the dunes for two main reasons. First, the dunes are the defensive line to our cherished islands. They protect us against rising flood waters when deadly hurricanes and harsh north east winds blow and threaten our land and lives. Driving and walking on them, loosens the vegetation and disturbs the sand, causing erosion an weakness. Second, the beaches are regulated by the National Park Service and it is strictly prohibited. It is ILLEGAL and subject to a $5,000 fine & up to six months in federal prison.”
Can our dog ride in the vehicle?

By all means, yes; dogs are welcome! If your dog is likely to jump from the vehicle, we do not recommend bringing him/her in any of the convertibles. If any damage is caused by your pet, you will be held responsible (i.e. torn seats, “potty spots”, chewed up parts, etc.) Also, if your dog sheds excessively, please clean it yourself or pay an extra fee.
