You might be thinking it’s a little early to be thinking about next summer — we still have the hats and flip-flops laying around from this summer, after all. But if you plan to gather some friends and family for a getaway to the OBX in 2023, now is the time to lock in a rental home for the best selection and best value.


At Twiddy, we have over 1,000 homes to choose from – homes of all shapes and sizes, from Corolla to Nags Head. But these sweet deals begin to book up as early as 51 weeks in advance (and some book even earlier!).


Our data from the past several years shows that by January 1st, over 66% of our overall supply is rented for the following summer. 


Plan to book a vacation for a large group? By January 1st, most of our homes with 10 or more bedrooms are already been reserved, with over 79% booked.

Looking to Book an Outer Banks oceanfront rental?


If you wait until January, less than 21% of oceanfront rentals are typically left available for summer weeks, as 79% of oceanfront homes are booked by the first of the year. It’s no secret that we think that staying on the OBX oceanfront is the best

Twiddy guest services

At Twiddy, we’re lucky to have a fantastic selection of Outer Banks rentals to choose from. Waiting until January to plan means fewer homes available that meet your exact needs. We’re starting to book up fast, but planning now gives you a great chance at landing a home that’s just right. 


If you decide to plan a last-minute visit to the Outer Banks, you may get lucky and still find a home to rent. But if you’re part of a group planning to come down in the peak weeks, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, it’s smart to begin planning your 2023 summer trip to the Outer Banks now.

We can help you find the perfect OBX vacation rental!
