All The Best Tips for a Successful 2020 Beach Vacation
If you follow our blog you know last week we told you all about why you will love an Ocean Isle Beach vacation. If you are new to our blog, you should check out last week's post: Why an Ocean Isle Beach Vacation is the Perfect Summer Destination. In that post you will find all sorts of great information (and motivation) about booking an Ocean isle Beach family beach vacation.
We all have varying levels of concern about the Coronavirus, but we can all agree traveling this summer is going to be different then it was last summer. Here at Williamson Realty Vacations we are committed to providing you with the best and safest vacation experience in the area.This week we have a few tips and tricks for having a fun and successful 2020 beach vacation all while taking into account your concerns about the Coronavirus. Life may have changed, but a great vacation experience is still possible with a little planning.
Three things to know about your arrival and check-in
1. Keyless entry-
Did you know that most of our homes use a keyless entry system? This means there's no need (in most cases) to come to our office. It is just one more way that we can all keep our social distancing all while providing you and your family with the best service on Ocean Isle Beach. Curious how this works and if your specific property has keyless entry? Are you looking for a home that utilizes our keyless entry or lock box system? Give us a call at 800-727-9200 and we can help answer those and more questions.
2. Early isn't early-
Everyone loves getting to the beach as early as possible, (we don't blame you one bit) however, because of the coronavirus a few things have changed. While we have always strived to provide our customers with the cleanest properties on Ocean Isle Beach the reality is, like you, we are taking a few extra minutes to ensure your vacation home meets and exceeds the highest standards of cleaning. Your health is our paramount concern. Because of this we are asking guests to arrive at, or a little after, their designated check in time to allow our staff to complete the cleaning process. Coming three hours early isn't early as we will likely have to ask you to allow our staff to complete the cleaning of your home.
There are a few things you can do ahead of time to help you get settled into your vacation home and out on the beach as quick as possible. One of those is coming prepared. We recommend doing as much grocery shopping as possible prior to arriving on Ocean isle Beach. After all we are a small community. By shopping at home you'll have be able to have everything you need and help our local community. We also recommend bringing an extra supply of toilet paper and cleaning products.
Fun things you can do and still keep your social distance
The whole point of coming to the beach is to get away from it all and relax for a few days. Many people are curious about the area's attractions and things they can do while still maintaining their social distance from others. Here are three fun ways you can enjoy all the best of Ocean Isle Beach and maintain social distancing.
Enjoy the water
There are lots of different ways to enjoy the water. Whether you love the adventure of kayaking or looking are looking to start a new hobby, there is truly something for all experience levels. Ocean Isle Beach offers the following: surfing, kayaking, SUP, boating, fishing, swimming, snorkeling, canoeing, sailing, kite surfing and so much more! If you love the water you are going to love your Ocean Isle Beach vacation.
Hit the beach
There is something remarkably simple and relaxing about a day on the beach. Perhaps it's the fact that you need so little to have a great day. A towel, a cooler, and a good book are the perfect recipe for a day on Ocean Isle Beach. Turn off the news, forget about Facebook. Just sit back and enjoy the calming sounds of the waves rolling up on the shore. Pure simple bliss. Who knew social distancing could be so relaxing?
So much more to do
You don't have to be a water lover to have fun. Ocean Isle Beach is a great place for runners and cyclists as well. With our quiet and flat streets there are plenty of adventures to be had. Talking a walk or going for a long run has never been more relaxing. Picture miles of pristine beaches to jog on in the cool early mornings or throw on your helmet, air up the tires, and head out for a two-wheeled adventure around the local area.
Great vacations include amazing food
If you love great food than you're in luck. Ocean Isle Beach has lots of great restaurants to choose from. Of course, we recommend take-out to help maintain social distancing. What could be better than grabbing some take-out from your favorite Ocean Isle Beach restaurant and sitting on the beach or enjoying your deck? You can't get that view anywhere else that's for sure!
Don't forget to take advantage of your vacation home's well-appointed kitchen. Fresh seafood is never far away. fire up the grill, check out Pinterest and find that perfect beach recipe you've always wanted to try all from the comfort of your vacation home.
