The Outer Banks has been a popular vacation destination for decades, and that popularity continues to grow. In 2021, vacation homes booked faster than in past years as more families attended work and school remotely and opted for drive-to travel destinations over flights and cruises. Even Netflix’s “Outer Banks” played a part by inspiring people who had never experienced our area to give it a try.
Now, 2022 vacations are booking even faster than in 2021!
If you’re having trouble finding the right home for 2022, consider trying different search criteria. Traditional summer weeks book faster than other timeframes; plan a spring or fall vacation instead. (Fall is the locals’ favorite season!) If you prefer to stay oceanfront, consider trying a home set further back from the shore. Many semi-oceanfront and oceanside homes are just a short walk from community beach accesses. Availability on our website is real-time, so check back frequently for cancellations on your preferred 2022 weeks.
To help our guests get a head start on their 2023 vacation planning, we will be opening our 2023 booking calendars for all homes in mid-January 2022.
If you haven’t already joined our email list, sign up using the “Stay Up-To-Date On The Outer Banks” form below, and we will send you a notification when 2023 calendars become live at CarolinaDesigns.com. Although not all homes will have rates posted right away, you will be able to place an advanced hold on any available 2023 week for $50.
Opening our booking calendars earlier than ever also means rebooking policy changes for 2023.
We have already been in touch with our past guests on these updates, and we are excited to help vacationers plan their visit as far in advance as possible. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly, local reservationists. We are here to help you daily between 9 AM and 5 PM.
