As a valued guest of our community, we want to bring some issues to your attention. First, be aware that the North Carolina Vacation Rental Act provides you with certain rights and protections. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with its provisions. It’s also a good practice to ensure that your landlord has sufficient commercial liability insurance to protect all parties during your use of the property.

Second, we would like to make you aware of a few local regulations designed to promote a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
