Thank you for taking the time to read and understand our rules and safety information! It will only improve your experience by expanding your knowledge on our property and location.
Our properties are all thoughtfully renovated, cared for and utilized by our guests, us and our family and friends. It is our goal to make sure all of our guests have an equally enjoyable stay, which requires common decency and care from all of our guests.
None of our locations are suitable for parties or events. Please be respectful of our neighboring property owners and visitors during your stay especially in the outdoor areas. There is a noise ordnance that restricts volume permitted outside from 10:00 pm - 8:00 am.
All renters should be 25 or older prior to bookings. This does not apply to families traveling with children under 25.
We do not discriminate with respect to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap, familial status, sexual orientation or gender identity in accordance to the Fair Housing Act and our personal human decency. We welcome all guests and are dedicated to welcoming you to our area!
No smoking or vaping inside of the property or on the decks. Guests will be fined for breaking this rule. If you smoke outside, properly dispose of all cigarette butts. Do not litter cigarette butts on the beaches.
Pets are permitted at Grand Dowdy and Write Off The Beach cottages. As fellow pet-lovers, we expect all dogs and dog owners to be respectful of the property. Our goal is for all of our guests traveling with or without pets to be equally comfortable at our cottage.
NO garbage disposal. Our cottage, like most on the Outer Banks, has a private septic system in our front yard. Our personal septic system is located in our yard. Please do not flush any items other than toilet paper. Do not allow food debris down the kitchen drain. Keep drain catch in the sink.
Please do not run AC lower than 68 degrees. Per the manufacturer this can lower performance or damage the HVAC system. AC programmed at 68 degrees or higher is ideal for most HVAC systems.
For additional comfort, we have added fans to each bedroom and the two living areas. Aside from the bunk room due to safety precautions.
