IMPORTANT COVID-19 Policy changes for 2021:

New Beach House Policies:

  1. The rooms are only for customers who will be diving on the Under Pressure. Non-divers are not allowed to stay at the house.
  2. All Guests are asked to wear a face cover when entering the house and around others.
  3. Please make sure to maintain Social Distancing while in the Beach House and outdoor deck areas.
  4. The Beach house will be disinfected prior to guests arriving.
  5. There will be paper towels and disinfected spray bottles in each bathroom and in the hallway for guest to use to disinfect after each use of the bathroom and any common areas.    
  6. No guest will be allowed on the upper level (main living area/kitchen) due the small space and to allow the Captain and Crew to have a space for Social Distancing.
  7. The beds in the bedrooms will only have sheets, one pillow, and a blanket on each bed.  All additional pillows and bedspreads have been removed.
  8. We will have a coffee machine (Keurig) in the entry hall along with Maxwell House K-cups, cream & suger. There is also a mini-fridge and small microwave for guests to use. Each guest must provide their own reusable coffee cup and any food/drink.
  9. Please avoid touching things unless necessary and use the provided disinfecting spray to clean after you use the bathroom and the new coffee/mini kitchen area.
  10. We will have a picnic table and dining utensils stored in the bottom level for guests to use if they want to cook-out.  We will have a Rubbermaid bin already prepared with paper plates, individually wrapped dining utensils, aluminum foil, and grilling utensils. 
  11. All Charter trip leads are responsible for assigning rooms (with a max of two people per-room) and to arrange room sharing if desired.
While we understand all these new rules may be irritating it is what we must do to help protect all. Should you feel you’d rather not deal with these policies there are some other options for lodging on Hatteras Island please look into those.

General Information:

The Top level is where Nancy and I stay and the crew; this house will be one of the nicest beach houses you will ever stay in for divers. It has an ocean view and beach access. Divers/guest who stay here we ask that you please respect the house and furnishings. Many things in the house are brand new (furniture, décor, houseware) and the bathrooms have been remodeled recently.

Hope this answers any of your questions. I will continue to add to this list of info based on questions that I get asked as the year goes on. I think it will meet and exceed your expectations, which has been the case so far for those who have stayed here.
