The Wacky Turtle is an refreshed, beautiful two story townhouse with it's own dock on a impressive canal. Bring your fishing rod! Tie up your skiff or modest fishing boat on your own dock. This striking home is in a "Norman Rockwell" like community which is safe for running, walking, and appreciating the outdoors. If you like to golf you are a stone's throw from the community golf course with a restaurant & open to the public. Appreciate your morning coffee and the pretty view from the 2nd story balcony or from the deck off of the lanai or your personal dock on the water. Why is it named the Wacky Turtle? The turtles like to visit the dock area. Eat outdoors on the deck with the gas grille. Savor the view or have dinner in the Carolina Room (Lanai), with all windows over looking the canal on the first floor. The master suite has a full bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has an attached sitting room with a daybed/trundle. This is the room that can be used as a 3rd bedroom, separated by toile drapes. This bedroom has a balcony overlooking the canal. It also has a intelligent TV. WiFi is supplied throughout as well as 2 designated parking spaces convenient to the front entrance. Quaint & artsy downtown New Bern on the water is a short drive. Paddle over to the marina close by with a restaurant & bar. You may rent this townhouse by the nighttime (minimum of 3 nights), by the week, or by the (discounted) month. Golf & eateries are a stone throw away. Karaoke at Attitude's Pub on Friday nights or "Shag" to beach music on Sunday's.

How to get the best rental experience:

Cost saving strategies:

  • In the Morehead City area, The sooner you can book a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The best properties are reserved early. Booking your vacation property up to twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and book your vacation home.
  • Summer time is high season in the Morehead City area. Reserving a rental home in the Fall or Spring is our favorite way to save money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a better selection of suitable homes. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a Morehead City vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with friends and family at your favorite beach.
  • Some property managers offer discounts for veterans and active duty military. Remember to ask your host or property manager if special offers are available for your group before you book.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners often offer guests an option to obtain vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for more information.
  • Often, rental management companies supply Morehead City area visitor guides which often include money-saving offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or by way of a partnership 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.

Narrow your rental Search:

  • Start by selecting potential vacation weeks and a spending budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the bed configuration your group needs. LOVELY WATERFRONT TOWNHOUSE WITH DOCK, KAYAK & PADDLE BOARD has 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rental home search.
  • Specific information about bedrooms and bed counts is regularly accessible on booking websites. Otherwise, email or call the host before you book the property. Remember that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in living rooms.
  • Some properties allow pets, but others don't. Allowable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional fees may apply. Ask the owner about your furry family members before booking.
  • If there's a particular Morehead City attraction you crave, search for rentals that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your desires.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Confirm all necessary amenities are available before booking.

Have a wonderful stay:

  • Store the host's information in your smartphone.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, television set or coffee maker. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief phone call prevents many concerns.
  • Protect the owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental when you are away, just like you would back home.
  • To make sure damages are not linked to your family's stay, make a record of any problem areas during check in. Call the property manager immediately to relay any pre-existing damages. If there is a dispute, having a record of problems and contact attempts will be valuable.
  • Be respectful. Frequently, adjacent homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting noise limits and parking rules is the right thing to do.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Neighbors can often help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to find the best bike paths, have a great night out, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • When it's time to leave, complete a final walk-through to make sure you haven't forget anything. Check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the property a final time and look for any damage. We recommend walking through with the host whenever possible. If the property manager is not available, take pictures of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your family have a wonderful time? Most rental management companies make it easy for customers to provide feedback. If your rental and/or host was great, they would love to hear it. If anything was out of order and they failed to address it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.
