Frequently Asked Questions - God’s Blessings Beach House

Question: When do we get the information about how to access the house?
Answer:  It will be e-mailed to you a week prior to your stay

Question: How far away is the beach?

Answer: The house is 1 row back from the ocean. The access to the beach path is just across the lane. Climb over 2 dunes and you're there!  If you have little ones it may be easier to use the boardwalk access just a couple of houses down the lane.  The boardwalk has 20+ stairs over the 1st dune, then you walk on the sandy beach bath over the 2nd dune, which is a smaller dune.  It's about a 3 minute walk total.

Question:  Where is the laundry room key located?
Question:  It is located on key rack near the main door.

When are trash pick-up days?

Tuesday and Friday (put out trash bins the night before as trash pickup usually occurs around 2-3 AM)  You may hear a large truck driving by beeping with flashing lights, don't be alarmed, it's just the garbage truck.

Question: Can I bring my pet?

Answer: No. Our liability Insurance doesn’t cover pets as of now. Also, the house isn’t equipped for pets.

Question: Why do I have to provide my address and contact info?

Answer: This is protection for both parties as it applies to liability for the NC Rental Agreement, and also for liability insurance on God’s Blessings beach house.
