About this Property

Welcome to Beach Retreat West. This 2nd row duplex has it all. Adore great sea and sound vistas without the oceanfront rental prices. This home is in amazing condition, with over 2000 sq. feet of living space. View the sea or sound from every single room in the home. Walk out onto the decks, and the sea vistas will take your breath away. I promise, once you have been here for a week, or two, you will never want to leave.

You will wake up in the mornings, walk out onto the decks, and gaze out over the elegant Crystal Coast. Take a deep breath and you will smell Emerald Isle's salty air. This home has four bedroom, with queen beds (all with outdoor space/balcony access), a children' loft/entertainment area (four twin beds), with TV/VCR/DVD. There is also a huge collection of books, movies, games, puzzles, and a audio system system all there for your appreciation.

Cook all your favorite foods in the thoroughly supplied kitchen, while you look out the window at the sea. Dine in and entertain in the enormous, open living/ dining room. Watch t.v on the flat screen TV, while calming on the couch.

Step out on the outdoor space the take in the elegant vistas of the beach from both directions. If you watch carefully, you may even catch a glimpse of dolphin swimming by. If the sun gets too hot for you on top, walk downstairs, where you can appreciate a covered outdoor space that provides tons of shade.

One of my favorite niceties with this home is the beach access. There is a wooden walkway directly across the street that leads you straight to the beach. This is extremely important if you are like me, with five children and it seems like you bring everything but the kitchen sink with you. We always have so much to carry back and forth, that having the comfort of the beach access is priceless.

Finally, after a fun-filled day on the beach, put the children to bed and walk back out onto the outdoor space. Sit back and look at the moon as it shines over the sea. This view will just put an exclamation point on your day. Get a good nighttime sleep and get ready to do it all over again tomorrow.

I hope after reading this, you are excited about visiting with us. We look forward to making our 'Little Piece of Utopia', bliss for you and your family too. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns that you might have.

If you are visiting with multiple families, please see dates and availabilities for Beach Retreat East, listing #353518. Rent both sides and holiday together.

Thank you for visiting our page. Hope to see you at the beach soon, with a drink in your hand and your toes in the sand!

How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Many rental owners and vacation houses provide Morehead City area promotional travel magazines which include coupons, either offered independently by vendors, or by a partnership between the property manager and the local merchant itself. These guides can provide a great start to your rental search.
  • Prefer to stay away from the crowds of people and cut costs? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of peak pricing.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the U.S. Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Make sure to confirm with property management company to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a rate reduction.
  • Is there a specific activity you are mainly anticipating ? Make sure to prioritize your proximity to the family activities and locations you are most interested in.
  • Consider obtaining trip insurance along with your leasing contract. Trip insurance, which generally add somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base term price, provides guests reimbursement of their rental expenses for any days missed as a result of personal health related emergencies or hurricanes, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

General Rental Tricks & Tips

You may be surprised to find out just how many vacation rentals are available at your destination. Rental home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of online research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Rental homes are often owner operated or managed by rental management companies. For property owners not directly engaged in the management of their properties, management companies are instrumental in assisting travellers with making reservations, check-in, house cleaning services, as well as repairs and maintenance problems that may arise.

Below are great tips and suggestions to help you navigate the rental home search and booking process.

Searching for and reserving the best rental property:

Before you book "Beach Retreat West - Book your vacation today!!! **Summer 2020**", examine our brief collection of issues to consider.

The Sooner You Begin, The Better The Choices

Morehead City rentals are reserved many months (and up to a year) in advance. To ensure the very best choice of vacation homes, we advise searching and booking your Morehead City rental 6-Twelve months before your travel dates, whenever feasible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental..

Find your Spot and Establish Dates

Agreement can often be tricky among relatives, but the moment this difficult part is complete everything will start to fall in place.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

How many relatives are joining your trip? Keep in mind that a lot of rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living area. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for the party. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available online. If not, communicate with the property owner before you reserve the home.

Commit to a Budget

Will your favorite rental fit your budget during that choice Summer week? If a few individuals or family members are sharing the cost, confirm that each person knows their responsibility and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to contribute. Most rental documents call for a single person to be liable for the whole reservation.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What property features is your family searching for? Do you simply desire a rental home with a swimming pool, spa or beach volleyball court? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or night life? Are sheet sets offered with the rental, or do you need to bring your own? Build a list of priority amenities to help filter your search.

Accessability

Occasionally the senior generation has trouble with stairways. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is required, include that into your search. The majority of rental postings will include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Remember to include your furry family members. Animals are welcome at a number of rental homes, but policies differ. Read your agreement thoroughly! Additional fees or deposits may be applied to your contract.

Where to Search

A number of websites exist to match vacationers with rental owners.. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Morehead City local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Apart from offering exclusive rental properties, local companies provide exceptional service..

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to be sure the property has everything required. If it is lacking, the home management company might know of similar properties that better fit your desires and budget..

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable week, try getting an additional night. Negotiating rates is most effective during the off-peak season when many homes sit empty.

Study the Entire Contract

Read through the entire contract and be certain you are aware who is liable for:

  • Utility bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool and hot tub 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

In addition to the regular price, guests have to pay local taxes when renting "Beach Retreat West - Book your vacation today!!! **Summer 2020**", in addition to any other additional fees which may be mandatory depending on their situation, including a dog fee, earlier check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heat fee for private swimming pool usage during the fall or spring months.

If you need to Cancel

Cancellation policies vary with each vacation rental. Rental management companies and rental owners often offer their guests the option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance guards the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives you relief should catastrophe strike.

Reserve your Vacation Property

When everything looks correct, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. Keep in mind that most rental contracts will require a substantial rental down payment and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation rental owner.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

Put the rental manager's contact information into your smart phone and wallet for easy access to answers during your stay.

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any problems when you arrive. We also advise immediately calling the property manager with a report of any problems, along with your request for any repairs. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the documented problems and communication attempts could be very helpful.
  • Ask questions. You could need guidance for a fireplace, Television or spa. Get in touch with your rental manager. They are there to help. A quick phone call prevents many problems.
  • Remember to respect your neighbors. Local people will likely be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your home.
  • Ask a local. Residents may point you in the right direction.
  • Don't forget to protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation rental secured while you are away, just like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Make certain you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cabinets and cabinets.
  • Once your things are all out, begin a walk-through of the rental home to make certain no damage occurred during your stay. We advise walking through with the property manager wherever possible (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a blast? Many rental management companies and rental search sites make it easy for renters to provide feedback. If the rental home and/or property manager was outstanding, they'll appreciate your praise. If anything went wrong and they didn't fix it in a acceptable manner, or when the rental home was not as described, you may want to note that as part of your comments.

Learn from your Stay

Does everybody want to re-book next year? With a little luck everything turned out to be perfect and you're excited to re-book the same rental for your next vacation. Maybe the rental property wasn't quite right, and you will better know how to perfect your search next time.
