The beaches along the Southeastern North Carolina Coast have instituted new policies and regulations to reduce crowds and encourage the idea of “Social Distancing” regarding coronavirus.
We wanted to list any restaurants that are open for take-out ordering. We also wanted to know if businesses offer eCommerce sales.
And are Vacation Rental Companies and Hotels receiving reservations for the Summer season or have they seen a drop-off in inquiries? How are they handling reservations and cancellations for their customers with uncertain times ahead?
We also asked for any comments from area businesses about how they are being affected in general. We created a form for them to help share this information. Some that responded requested to remain anonymous.
If you are an area business and would like to be included please Click Here.
Here is some of the feedback that we have received so far:
The Sunset Inn
All we can say is, it’s bad. No revenue coming for potentially months and very few new reservations coming in for the summer.
Guests are starting to cancel in early May as well. We are a seasonal business and timing could not have been worse. We depend on the spring business.
We are currently offering a gift card special to help us get through.

A vacation rental company who wished to remain anonymous wrote:
“So far we are still seeing new reservations for May and the summer but they have declined in numbers.
We changed dates or gave refunds to guests who were scheduled during the Town’s suspension of rentals.
For reservations beyond the Town’s suspension, we are only giving refunds at each homeowner’s discretion.”
