The Elan Difference

"WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE ELAN VACATIONS FOR MY NEXT OUTER BANKS VACATION?" That's an easy one… it's our people! Some of our best employees own the company. We're here every day on the Outer Banks; answering the phones, working the check-in counter, delivering linen and troubleshooting maintenance issues. We wear all of the hats imaginable and our hands-on approach and commitment to ensuring the best Outer Banks vacation experience possible is what sets us apart from the rest!

Élan Vacations is the only rental company with a check in office located off-island. Affording every guest a Standard Early Arrivals Program- getting you off the road & on vacation ahead of the crowd.

Pick up your keys as early as 9am. If your home is ready, you can go straight to the property and start to relax; otherwise, we'll take your cell number and call you as soon as the property is ready. Arriving late or driving in from the west? Just call our offices ahead of time and we'll make special arrangements to accommodate your needs!

Hungry after traveling so long? Before heading to the grocery store, stop in and relax under the tent…. Enjoy an ice cold soft drink and feed the kids with Nathan's hot dogs and genuine North Carolina BBQ. Our Check-In Day cookout (Memorial Day - Labor Day) is fast becoming the highlight of check-in day! You're on vacation and we're here to help you relax! Linens and towels are provided for every Élan Vacations home. Your home will be professionally cleaned upon your arrival and after your departure at no additional charge- just pack up and go and leave the cleaning to us!

Why vacation with Élan? It's simple… we care about YOU and making this the best vacation EVER!
