About this Property

With steps leading directly to the beach - what more could you ask for? The vistas from this home are amazing no matter which direction you look. Sitting on the highest point of land in Emerald Isle, Cloud Nine is appropriately named, sitting high atop the dunes. The sun rises to the east and sun sets in the west, over the sea, making this location one of the only places on the entire east coast that faces due south.
The home layout offers a humongous composite outdoor space with PVC railings and a covered sitting area for shade. Stairs offer less than a min. walk to get your feet in the sand. On the main living floor an open floor plan offers a calming living room to relax and rejuvenate for another breathtaking beach day. A sizable kitchen off of the living room on the main floor is loaded with all of your preparing necessities. On the Bogue Sound side of the main floor, a separate room is tucked away for additional sleeping space and is supplied with cable TV and a desk. A full bath and washer/dryer is on the sound side, off of the kitchen.
The upstairs is all about sleeping space! After a day on the beach or out visiting the plethora of local attractions, there is nothing like a good nighttime's rest. Cloud Nine offers bliss sleeping for our visitors as we have decorated the home for as we will one day live there ourselves. The master bedroom sits off the sea side and offers a king bed and a generous outdoor space with a view that makes you speechless. The master bedroom offers the biggest bathroom with windows that show the sea with every turn.
The biggest room on the sound side offers a private outdoor space with a view of the sea and the sound, a queen bed with a twin, enormous walk-in closet and wall mounted TV. The sound side back bedroom offers a full bed, twin bed and plenty of closet space with a great view of Bogue Sound. The middle room at the top of the stairs offers a bunkbed with two twins and closet.
Constructed in 1995 and modernized in 2012, the home is very well constructed and maintained. Cloud Nine sits near mile marker 15, mid-way mark on the 29 mile island. This proximity accepts visitors to travel east to discover the local flavor of close by Atlantic Beach, including a side trip to the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, only 8 miles away. Continue on east and follow Route 58 to the end of the road which is home to historic Fort Macon State Park. From Atlantic Beach, a trip across the causeway to Morehead City offers nightlife, sound side dining and local shopping with historic Beaufort only a few miles further east. Traveling west from the home brings you into the town of Emerald Isle in just 4 miles. Adventurous visitors can walk to the Bogue Sound pier by beach in about two hours. I recommend walking one way and phoning back for a ride and insisting on being taken out to a amazing local restaurant for lunch since you earned that!! Crossing the bridge at the west end of Emerald Isle is one of the most beautiful scenes on the island. This brief drive takes you to Cedar Point, home of Dudley Marina and the most impressive place for FRESH OFF THE BOAT seafood at Phillips Seafood Market - where the locals go for new fish. Drive across another brief bridge and enter into Swansboro, one of our favorite places to go. Wonderful people and phenomenal eateries. The closest mall in Jacksonville is only 30 mins. from Cloud Nine, beyond Swansboro.

These guides provide an excellent start to your rental search.
  • Desire to stay away from packed areas and save some money? The off-peak shoulder seasons generally offer amazing rates on rental accommodations.
  • Are you a military veteran? Many vacation rental companies offer discounts to veterans and active-duty servicemembers. Be sure to ask property manager to see if your travelling group is eligible for a discount.
  • Is there a particular experience you are mainly anticipating ? You'll receive the best value from a rental that most closely matches your ideal trip setting, even if it costs a little more.
  • Give thought to purchasing trip insurance along with your leasing agreement. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental rate, offers visitors reimbursement of their travel expenses for any days missed a result of personal health emergencies or storms, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unforeseen motel stay or extra fuel.

Many people are shocked to learn just how many rental properties are available in their area of interest. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of properties available makes it possible to find an optimum retreat to fit their Morehead City group, from tranquil condominiums to vast event homes with several bedrooms.

The majority of rental homes in Morehead City are privately owned and many are represented by experienced local property management agencies. For property owners not directly involved with the management of their vacation home, management companies are critical in helping travellers with booking, check-in, cleaning, as well as routine maintenance problems that may arise.

Seasoned Morehead City vacationers have discovered several tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting rental homes, however many newcomers will be happy to realize that many of these "tricks" are in plain sight, if you understand where they should look.

Finding and booking the best rental property:

Do you believe " OCEANFRONT ** UNBELIEVABLE VIEWS " is the best vacation property for your next getaway? Read this checklist to ensure it fits your preferences.

The Earlier You Begin, The Better The Choices

Morehead City vacation homes are reserved months (and up to a year) in advance. To get the best selection, begin your planning and search 6-Twelve months prior to a trip. Holiday gatherings can be a popular time for groups to plan their Summer escapes..

Find your Area and Identify Dates

Begin by figuring out which specific area of Morehead City you want to browse, and the choose dates you'll be vacationing.

Select a Size

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Be mindful that most properties advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the family room. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for your party. Generally rental listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Stick to a Budget

Check to make sure " OCEANFRONT ** UNBELIEVABLE VIEWS " suits your budget *during your desired week*. If a few individuals or relatives are sharing the cost, ensure each group understands their responsibilities and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to contribute. Typically, one member of the group will be in charge of making the complete reservation and collecting each party's contribution.

Create a list of "Wants" and "Requirements"

What home features is your group interested in? Do you just desire a rental home with a swimming pool, hot tub or volleyball court? Do you wish to be away from it all, or near a city setting? Are items like beach chairs, gas grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included with your rental home payment? Gather a list of "needs and desires" from your group to help narrow your search to the most suitable property.

Accessability

Do certain people in your party have specialized needs? If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are required, factor that into your search. The majority of property postings will include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Don't forget to include your best friend! Animal guidelines are different at each rental property. Read descriptions thoroughly. Don't forget to read agreements and contracts carefully. Service fees may apply when animals are included. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Start your Search

. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Morehead City local vacation homes" for local vacation home management companies. In addition to offering distinctive properties, local agencies offer top-notch service..

Negotiate

Re-read the description to make sure the vacation home has everything that you need. If lacking, the home management company might know of comparable properties that better suit your style and budget..

While not true for all properties, many owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Your easiest opportunity for a lower rate will be shifting to an off-season week.

Study The Agreement

Read the entire agreement and make sure you fully understand who is liable for:

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

Make sure your price includes all taxes and fees.

If you wish to Cancel

Ensure that you understand the cancellation policy prior to reserving. You'll probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of your standard vacation rental price, provides travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent vacation property costs) for any nights missed a result of personal medical related emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unforeseen hotel stay or extra gas.

Reserve It

When everything seems right, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. You'll likely have to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Know Who to Call

Make sure to get the manager's contact telephone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We suggest keeping the contact's details in your smart phone and wallet.

Good luck on reserving your rental home! You're on the right path to a phenomenal vacation!
