We are renting an oceanfront home at quite the premium in S. Nags Head this summer, and just received a notice last Friday that notified us of a "beach nourishment" project that will be ongoing on our stretch of beach while we are there. The beach will be closed and machinery will be working under lights 24/7. I am so upset that we have no recourse because of the contract we signed before we knew this!
After some research, I learned that the rental companies (as well as owners and residents) knew of this project and have been hotly debating its details for months. After the many questions we asked about our rental, no one apprised us that we may want to choose a different house.
Just beware-- if you are already obligated to a rental in the Town of Nags Head, this project could affect you too. The town website has the projected dates for each location/MP.
If anyone has any good advice for getting out of this contract, please let me know. We have young kids, as well as handicapped elderly-- we cannot navigate large pipes and mountains of dredged sand.
