OCR speaks out about COVID-19

At Oceanfront Cottage Rentals, our guests, employees, and homeowners are our #1 priority. Year-round we invite guests into the homes we manage and pride ourselves on cleanliness and safety.
Just like you, our lives have become consumed with information about coronavirus (COVID-19), with new information being presented by the hour. We understand you probably have questions concerning Oceanfront Cottage Rentals policies, cleaning practices, an existing reservation or even about making a new reservation. At this time, our company is focused on best practices that have already been in place. We do not plan on canceling anyone’s reservations. We are doing our part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus by going in the extra mile in our sanitation processes and social distancing. This is a stressful and anxious time for many people, and we know that traveling to the ocean can help reduce stress/anxiety. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation, and follow all guidelines put in place by The Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
