We are excited to inform you that all Topsail Island Towns are allowing Vacation Rentals as of May 9, 2020 in conjunction with the NC Governor’s announcement to move into Phase I of reopening our state to ease certain COVID-19 restrictions and to help revive the economy while protecting public health. Here is a link to FAQs for Phase 1. Please see links below for information from each of the town websites.
Brief Overview with Area Requirements and new Rules/Requirements from A Beach Place Realty:
*Visitors/Guests should bring their own face covering/masks as they will be required to be used inside areas where the public is allowed inside open businesses. *Please bring masks with you, practice social distancing, and proper hand hygiene!
*Our office will be closed to the public. All correspondence will need to be done via phone or email. All check-in envelopes will have sanitized keys and will be in the white Dropbox on the front of our building after 3 PM unless otherwise notified.
*All social distancing guidance is expected to be followed, even on the beach – 6 feet apart between each family group.
*Beach Accesses and public parking are open, although many or most parks are closed.
*Restaurants are currently not permitted to offer dine-in or on-site (inside or outside) eating. Take-out or delivery services are permitted only. Most of the island favorites are providing curbside pickup service.
*Limitations on the number of people permitted at one time into businesses or other public spaces based on size of the building or other factors.
*Town officials are recommending that all Visitors/Guests should bring essentials with them, including paper and sanitizing products including non-perishable groceries. Like many places in the United States, all shoppers should expect to see changes in product availability at grocery and retail outlets as supply chain demand fluctuates across the nation.
VERY IMPORTANT – NEW RULES AND RECOMMENDATIONS:
*All decorative pillows, shams, throw blankets, bed blankets, etc. are being removed from furniture and beds – they may be either removed from the property or bagged and placed into closets. Please do not remove them from their bags or closets for the safety of everyone.
*Guests will need to bring or rent blankets. We highly recommend all Guests to bring their own bed pillows.
