THINGS TO DO:
Blu Skyz is located on a flat section of Ocean Drive, which is a great street to walk, bicycle or rollerblade. Emerald Isle is bicycle-friendly with bicycle paths along the major roads and easy bicycle rental if you cannot bring your own. Bicycle or walk to the Emerald Plant. Shopping 2.5 miles away. You can walk effortlessly to the pier via the beach (about 1.5 mile away). Emerald Plant. Shopping, Food Lion or Publix, water park, cinema, shopping, mini-golf, eateries, canoe and kayak units and surf shop are only 2-3 miles away. You'll often find fabulous tidal pools on our beach during low tide. As with any beach (especially one with sandbars and without lifeguards), know what to do in terms of rip tides. On Emerald Isle, we don't usually get the monster waves you see on the outer banks, but everybody should know about rip tides. Bring flashlights to look for crabs at nighttime and a pair of binoculars to watch the dolphins or birdwatch. Fishing: The Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier is a 1.5-mile walk on the beach to right. Surf fishing is trendy especially when the beaches are peaceful. We’ve tried to stock the kitchen with necessary silverware and cookware. If anything is missing, please tell us so we can address the problem. Food/Grocery: Note that the grocery stores are swamped on Saturday when new people arrive.

Our top Vacation rental tips:

How to get the best value:

  • In the Morehead City area, The earlier your group can book a vacation rental, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental properties are reserved early. Booking your vacation rental six - twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental.
  • Summertime is the most expensive season in the Morehead City area. Booking your vacation home in Fall or Spring months is a good way to save money on your vacation rental. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable properties. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Morehead City vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation on the coast? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with family and friends at your favorite beach.
  • Some hosts and property managers offer promotional rates for veterans and active duty military. It's always a good idea to check with your host or property manager to see if rate reductions are available for your group.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer their guests an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for specifics.
  • Many property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Morehead City area visitor guides which often include coupons, either offered directly by local companies, or through a relationship between the management company and the business itself. You can also find Morehead City visitors guide and coupon books at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers.

Planning and choosing yourrental home:

  • Select a group lead, select your dates, and choose a max budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the configuration your group requires. 2nd Row, Steps to Beach, Dog Friendly, 4BD, 3BA, Game Room, Office, Friday-Fri has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Morehead City rental home search.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed counts & types is generally available on booking pages. Otherwise, email or call the property management company before you reserve the vacation property. Note that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds. You will need to determine what is right for your family.
  • If your group is bringing pets, you'll need to book a rental that allows animals. Ask for specifics on breed, weight, and type requirements. Usually, property owners charge pet deposits and fees.
  • If there's a certain Morehead City attraction you love, browse homes that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your desires.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Make certain to ask about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.

Advice for a smooth stay:

  • Take a copy of the host's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. Put the host's information in your smartphone.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, elevator or coffee maker. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief call prevents quite a few issues.
  • Ensure you protect the owner (and your stuff!) by locking and securing the home when you are out, just like you would at home.
  • Record any damages to the rental during check in, and immediately e-mail them to the host. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that are helpful if a dispute is filed.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like unpleasant visitors bothering your home life. Apply the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great restaurants and scenic spots you would have never otherwise known!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can usually help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to take kids for a treat, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Just prior to departing, take a walk-through to confirm you haven't leave anything behind. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the rental one final time and keep an eye out for damages to contents or the property itself. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager isn't available, take pictures of the rental to record its condition at check-out.
  • After your trip, leave a review! Property managers rely on excellent ratings to inspire new reservations. They'll be grateful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your review and help them have the best future vacation. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to fix it.
