Check-ins Have Resumed, Southport Boil Water Advisory Lifted

Post Florence Update – 9/26/18
Oak Island Accommodations has resumed check-ins. All guests who were scheduled to check in between 9/22/18 and 9/30/18 should have received an email with check-in instructions and updates concerning the condition of their vacation rental (check your junk folder too, as some inboxes will place our messages there). Property owners should log into OwnerWeb and visit the “News and Info” section for important information during the recovery process. Guests who were scheduled to check-in during the period when Hurricane Florence was making landfall should watch for an email coming in early October with further information.
There continue to be some circumstances on the island that could necessitate a move if situations do not improve by the time of a guest’s arrival. These include:
CASWELL BOIL WATER ADVISORY – The Town of Caswell Beach remains under a boil water advisory. We are hoping to hear that this has been lifted any day now, but at this time a boil water advisory is still in place.
OKI SEWER SERVICE ISSUES – There remain certain sections of Oak Island that still do not have adequate sewer service. If your vacation rental is located in one of the below areas and sewer service is not resumed by your arrival, our staff will find a comparable rental to move you to:
• SE 57th Street
• Pelican Drive from SE 46th to SE 57th
• E. Beach from SE 52nd to SE 58th (area eastward of beach washout – working to get road restored)
• NW 3rd to NW 13th
• Along West Yacht Dr. between NW 3rd and NW 13th
Thank you for your patience as we work to communicate with our guests and property owners following Hurricane Florence. Florence may have made a mess of our office building, but she did not dampen our spirit.

    Am happy things are getting back to somewhat “normal” and that OIA is accepting check-ins. I would hope that those customers that are coming in October and that have had reservations for many months and will be travelling for several hundred miles to vacation on Oak Island will hear sooner rather than later whether or not their cottage is still “rentable”. Most cannot wait until the last minute to finalize their trips that are now on “hold”. Also, even if the rental is not damaged, there is the issue of not being able to get there due to road closures. So, will continue to check your updates, our e-mail and the road situation in the area.

    Thanks and know it is unimaginable what you and the residents have gone thru…
