General Info & Policies

The beginning of a perfect island vacation starts with choosing the right vacation home. Read the information below to help you choose a vacation rental home and make your vacation dreams a reality!

Our homes have interior and exterior photographs in addition to floor plan sketches that may be viewed with each property description. Property descriptions may be accessed through the Vacation Rentals by Name or from the results of a Carolina Retreats Rental Search. With over 250 vacation rentals across the NC coast, our large selection allows vacationers to pick the retreat that best suits their wants. With amenities you desire, such as elevators, internet access, boat dock or pier access, and pet-friendly rentals take the time to relax; you deserve this.

We rent privately owned vacation homes, condos, and duplexes to families under the terms and conditions in our Vacation Rental Agreement and in the North Carolina Rental Act.

Each home is privately owned and reflects the owner’s personal taste. Homes range from basic to luxury. Rental rates are based on location, size, amenities, and physical condition. Every effort is made to represent each home as realistically as possible. Unfortunately we do not offer any homes that meet ADA accessibility standards. We do not rent to anyone under 24 years of age and we reserve the right to require official identification showing picture and date of birth. Loggerhead Inn requires guests to be at least 21 years of age - visit https://www.loggerheadinn.com/policies for full Loggerhead Inn policies.

Carolina Retreats will not be responsible for providing additional furnishings and equipment. Please make sure the home you choose will meet your needs before you make your reservation. We will be unable to move you to another home, or make other arrangements for you, after your reservation has been confirmed or upon arrival if you are not satisfied with the home you have chosen.

The maximum number of occupants allowed in each vacation home is shown in the vacation home description beside "Maximum Occupancy". Premises may not be used or occupied at any time by more than the maximum occupancy limit. Adults and children, including babies of all ages, must be counted. Premises served by septic systems may not exceed occupancy of two occupants per bedroom in accordance with North Carolina Law. Bed sizes are indicated to allow flexibility in sleeping arrangements and do not indicate occupancy limits.

Carolina Retreats is authorized to rent to family groups only. Weddings and other celebratory events exceeding maximum occupancy at any time are not permitted. No teen or college age groups are permitted even if chaperoned by adults. Rental to individuals under the age of 24 is not permitted in any Carolina Retreats managed homes. Loggerhead Inn rooms may only be booked by guests 21 years of age or older.  We reserve the right to require official identification showing picture and date of birth. Overcrowding or misrepresentation is cause for immediate eviction and forfeiture of all monies paid.

Some homes permit Partial Week Getaways for 3 to 6 night stays. These Getaway requests may be made by calling our office and are accepted no more than 7 days in advance of the arrival date.  These stays typically must be within a home's arrival and departure day unless prior approval is obtained. 

When you need a shorter stay with booking plans made in advance, we are now excited to offer Loggerhead Inn rooms!  These rooms allow 2 night minimum stays at any time.  Visit the site for details and availability:  https://www.loggerheadinn.com/.
