 Book Your OBX Vacation YOUR WAY!
 Enjoy these great options from Sun Realty when booking
 your next OBX vacation.

 Sun Realty's newest program was developed to meet the needs of busy families like yours!
 Introducing…Freestyle Flex Vacations
 No rules. Just flexibility.
 Our innovative Freestyle Flex Vacations program allows you to custom-design your OBX
 getaway! Stay as few nights as you like, arrive on any day of the week, and work an
 Outer Banks vacation into even the most hectic schedule.
 Sun Realty responds to the needs of our valued guests… We understand that your life
 is busy and that planning a vacation shouldn’t be. When our guests told us they needed
 more flexibility, we listened! We’re pleased to introduce a revolution in Outer Banks

 Why Freestyle Flex Vacationing is Different:
 • Choose your own arrival and departure dates - With a traditional Outer Banks vacation
 rental, you typically check-in and check-out on a Saturday or Sunday. Freestyle
 Vacations allow you the flexibility to arrive or depart any day of the week. Avoid the
 crowds and select the days that work best for your family’s schedule.
 • Choose the number of days you’d like to stay - With a traditional Outer Banks vacation
 rental, you’re constrained to a weekly timeframe. Freestyle Vacations allow you to stay
 as few or as many nights as you’d like (subject to availability).

 Why should you consider a Freestyle Vacation?
 • You pick the number of nights you’d like to stay.
 • Arrive any day of the week. No more Saturday-only or Sunday-only arrivals.
 • Can’t stay for an entire week? Take advantage of a long weekend by staying Thursday
 through Sunday, Friday through Monday, YOU choose YOUR way.
 • Choose from a wide variety of Freestyle Flex Vacation properties. We offer Freestyle
 vacation homes in every area and every price range.

 knowledgeable Vacation Specialist at 1-888-853-7757.

 Here’s to vacationing Freestyle!
