We here at RelaxOBX love the Outer Banks and are excited to provide a vacation rental listing service exclusively focused on the amazing Outer Banks community.
For Owners/Property Managers: We are committed to providing a service that allows you to list your vacation rental properties and easily connect directly with prospective guests through our one-click inquiry process.
For Vacationers/Guests: We are committed to providing a service that reduces the hassle of finding that perfect Outer Banks vacation rental and provides you with the ability to initiate contact directly with owners and property managers to find that perfect vacation property without the hassle of other vacation rental sites.
For Everyone: RelaxOBX will NEVER charge “service fees” to prospective guests like other vacation rental websites, saving everyone money.
Who are we: We are Outer Banks property owners and vacationers. We created RelaxOBX based on a few core principals driven by our own direct experience owing a vacation rental in the Outer Banks.
- Local – Not Global: We sought out to create a service that was exclusively Outer Banks focused and we plan to add more locally focused content in the future.
- Take Back Control: We became very frustrated with the large, corporate vacation rental websites that have systematically taken total control over the rental process by putting up multiple barriers to prevent guests and owners/property managers from communicating directly. These restrictions have taken what once was a smooth and easy to manage process for prospective quests and owners/property managers and made it cumbersome and frustrating for everyone. Guests can no longer interact directly over the phone or email with owners and managers directly during the inquiry and booking process and we have experienced first hand how these ever increasing restrictions actually make the process much more difficult and add significant frustration for everyone involved, especially prospective guests.
- No Service/Booking Fees: Since these large vacation rental sites have all adopted the same model of charging prospective renters a service/booking fee of in some cases up to 9% – two things have happened:
- This historic number of vacation weeks booked at our property has plummeted and
- Our guests are now paying much more to find that perfect vacation property and secure it for the same service that used to be free to them
- RelaxOBX will never ask for or require a prospective guest to provide their credit card information just to make a rental inquiry or at anytime on the site
Thanks for visiting RelaxOBX and we hope you enjoy your experience and have an opportunity to Relax on this amazing island.
