How We’re Helping to Stop the Spread

We have made adjustments to the operations of our business to protect our most valuable assets – our guests, our owners, and our staff.

To eliminate the foot traffic in our offices, we have made some changes to our check-in and check-out procedures. We are offering keyed check-ins pickup outside of our offices. You will not need to leave your car when picking up your key packet.

When you are departing, we have drop boxes at each office to drop your key packets off. Keyless check-ins will continue directly to your vacation rental and use your keyless code to access your vacation rental property beginning at your check-in time.

We are continuing to provide bed linens and bath towels that have been laundered in our linen facility and our staff is continuing to follow CDC guidelines.

Our housekeeping staff is taking extra precautions by assuring that each property is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized by using top-of-the-line cleaning supplies and following strict protocols to ensure all rental units are safe and clean. We are ensuring our staff is staying well-informed and updated with any changes, and following all CDC guidelines.

How You Can Help Stop the Spread

We encourage our guests to enjoy their stay and visit local attractions while still following the social distancing recommendations put in place by the CDC.  Try to stay in your vacation rental home, enjoy the beach, partake in outdoor activities, ride bikes on the bike path, enjoy take-out by picking up food from our local restaurants all while avoiding heavily populated areas, the public, and practicing social distancing.

Order Groceries Online for Pick Up or Delivery

As a Bluewater guest, you can participate in Vacationer Supported Agriculture (VSA). VSA products are supplied by local farmers and shrimpers in partnership with NC State University and local community organizations.

You may also order your groceries ahead of time and choose delivery or drive-through pickup instead of going inside the grocery store. These local grocery stores are offering grocery drive-through pickup: Publix in Emerald Isle, Walmart in both Swansboro and Morehead City, Harris Teeter in Morehead City, and Lowes Foods in Cape Carteret.

Call Us Instead of Coming In

If you have any questions or concerns during your stay – please contact our offices. While our offices remain open, we are asking everyone to reach out to us via telephone whenever possible so that our employees and guests may remain healthy.
