“…Ocean Atlantic Rentals was fabulous about setting up our chairs and umbrellas early everyday! Jacob was wonderful with his good morning texts and letting us know when all was set up and ready to go! One less worry when you just want to relax at the beach! Thank you Ocean Atlantic Rentals, Jacob and Eric, for your great service! Highly recommend” –5 Star TripAdvisor Review
When you visit the Outer Banks, the last thing you want is extra work; relaxation and less hassle is the name of the OBX vacation game. This past season, our umbrella service (also known as cabana service) received the most 5-star online reviews from our customers. This service proved to be extra beneficial for families with elderly guests, those with young children, large vacation homes and vacationers that stayed for multiple weeks. It also was appreciated by guests that wanted the ultimate beach experience and did not want the hassle of lugging a ton of beach equipment back and forth every day to their rental home. Multiple online reviews stated they would never vacation again without this service.
Here are several things to understand when considering using Ocean Atlantic Rentals umbrella setup service:
Pre-Reserve for your Summer Vacation
Umbrella service requires a lot of manual labor and pre-planning. To maintain the level of quality in our work and professionalism we have to limit the number of setups our various crews can handle. On any given week, especially in the peak of the summer season, demand may outweigh our availability. To ensure you are able to experience this premier Ocean Atlantic Rentals treatment during your summer vacation, we highly recommend you do not wait and book with plenty of advance notice. Cabana service is available May 1st through October 15th.
The Details Make the Difference
On your check-in day, we deliver your gear to your beach house; you are welcome to use the gear that day. For the next 6 days our Ocean Atlantic Rentals staff will setup your Ocean Atlantic Rentals chairs and umbrellas on the beach in front of your cottage (or closest beach access) before 9:30am. When the equipment is set-up, you are sent a text message (optional). A name tag will be placed on one chair with your last name and contact information for your server; you can text message your server at any time that week with weather concerns. Your OAR server will come back between 5-7pm to “break down” the rental OAR chairs and umbrellas and return them to the storage place at your beach house. Sorry, we do not set up non-Ocean Atlantic Rentals gear.
Customize Your Umbrella Service
Our umbrella service lets you choose what combination of beach chairs and umbrellas best suits your needs. Our cabana packages vary from a single umbrella and two chairs and can grow to over 6 umbrellas and 12 chairs. You also have the option to add extra umbrellas and chairs or specialty items like footrests, tables and daily iced coolers!
Locations Available for Set-Up
Umbrella service is available for all ocean front homes, condos, and motels from Corolla to South Nags Head. Non-ocean front homes require much more labor and are available on a case-by-case basis only for a $75 fee ($125 fee for orders over $500).
