About this Property

Gaze out at the crystal clear water from the opulence of your livingroom, diningroom, kitchen, and master bedroom. Wake to the pink rays of the sun over the water and watch as they gently turn to blue and gray. Observe egrets and herons perch among the marshes outdoor your outdoor space, and relax as you watch the sunset over the marsh. Or soak in the two -person jazuzzi with your adored one as you notice the moon rising over the water. It just doesn't get better than this. As one guest said as she walked into the livingroom, "You feel like you're on a cruise ship!"
This is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath home with drop-dead vistas of the water. The master bedroom has a queen bed, a private entrance to a screened-in porch, and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water. The master bath has a 2-person hottub and shower. Another bedroom has twin beds (one firm, one semi-firm) and overlooks the marsh. The third bedroom has a queen bed and also overlooks the marsh. The fourth bedroom serves as an office and sleeps two in a trundle bed. All bedrooms have additional sheets and blankets.
The well-supplied kitchen has everything you could possibly need - and then some! Brand new dishwasher, two ovens, an island with a cooktop, microwave, drip and Keurig coffee maker, and vistas from the kitchen sink that will convince you to do dishes by hand. The living room has a TV, books, a couch that is oh so appealing, and many games for the family to savor. As you dine at the solid maple dining room table, relish the beautiful vistas of the changing hues of the sky and the estuary tides. Most of all, a outdoor space spans the length of the home that provides covered space for those who prefer shade, uncovered space for those who appreciate the sun, and a screened-in porch, all overlooking the water (Dock in the photos belongs to our neighbor). A grille is available for your outdoor preparing comfort. A generous, modern, washer and dryer will take care of all your laundry needs, should you need them. An office with a desk also has trundle bed that sleeps 2, overlooks the marsh and your own private bridge which leads to the home. Wi-Fi is available all over the home.
For a true sense of the water and waterlife, bring old tennis shoes and at low tide you can walk to the far side of the uninhabited island behind the home. There’s a modest beach there where you can relax with no one to interrupt your thoughts, except perhaps the distant sound of a lone seagull.
This home is located ten mins. from historic downtown Beaufort, where you can walk the boardwalk and harbor, stop in local artisan stores, sip a drink of your choice at many open air eateries, or visit the N.C. Maritime Museum. Beaufort is protected from the sea by two barrier islands- the Rachel Carson Estuarine Reserve which includes Bird Shoals and Carrot Island, and Shackleford, which is one of the islands that makes up Cape Lookout National Seashore. Ferries from Front St in Beaufort take you to Shackleford, which is remote and enchanting and calming and a very special place.
Charter fishing is available everywhere, for those who are interested. Grocery store and fish market are 10 mins. from the home. Atlantic Beach and Fort Macon State Park are a brief 20 min. drive away, where you can bury your toes in the sand and surf the sea waves. The N.C. Aquarium, on Pine Knoll Shores, is 10 mins. west of Atlantic Beach. More details of happenings around Beaufort will be available to you once you rent this home. NOTE: The dock is not ours and is private unit.

How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Search for the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many official tourism bureaus will offer you promotional travel guides with deals for lodging, dining and tours. These guides can provide an excellent start to your vacation rental search.
  • Wish to stay away from the crowds? The off-peak shoulder seasons will offer incredible rates on weekly rental accommodations.
  • Are you a military veteran? Quite a few property management companies provide discounted prices to vets and active-duty servicemembers. Make sure to check with property manager to see if your visiting group qualifies for a markdown.
  • Some properties are particularly designed for particular groups of travellers. Large event homes are perfect for weddings, wedding parties and corporate retreats. Some homes appeal to wildlife enthusiasts. Other rentals are situated close to music venues. You will definitely get the most value from a home that most thoroughly matches your ideal holiday setting, regardless if it costs a bit extra.
  • Rental companies and individual rental home owners frequently offer guests the chance to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs between 1% - 5% of the basic vacation rental cost, offers vacationers reimbursement of their trip expenses for any nights missed resulting from personal health emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unforeseen hotel room stay or additional gasoline. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

General Vacation Rental Information

You may be shocked to learn just how many rental homes are available at your destination. With such a wide selection, vacationers are certain to find a rental that fits their desires and spending budget.

The vast majority of vacation rentals in Morehead City are privately operated and many are represented by experienced local property management agencies. For property owners not directly engaged in the management of their properties, management companies are instrumental in assisting travellers with reserving, check-in, housekeeping, as well as maintenance issues that may arise.

Below are great tips and tricks to help you navigate the vacation home search and booking process.

Where to find and reserve a great vacation rental:

Do you think "Unparalleled water views! Nothing like this!" is the perfect rental property for your next vacation? Look over this checklist to confirm it fits all of your preferences.

Search Early and Frequently

Like many renowned destinations, In Morehead City the best vacation rentals are booked early. To ensure the very best selection of vacation homes, we suggest searching and booking your Morehead City rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates, whenever feasible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental..

Select your Place and Vacation Week

Oftentimes, the most challenging part of organizing your trip is choosing where to search, and when. Once the big decisions are tackled, everything else becomes simplier and easier.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Establish who is joining, and how many/what sort of bedroom arrangement you'll need. Bear in mind that many properties advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You will need to determine what is most appropriate for your family. Generally rental home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Decide on Your Budget

The majority of rentals are advertised with a price range. Determine the cost for your preferred stay. It might be at the top end of the range. If many groups or family members are sharing the cost, make certain each group understands their obligations and has approved a maximum they are willing to contribute. A single member of your party will have to be responsible for gathering repayments and acknowledging responsibility for the complete rental price at time of booking.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is your family trying to find? Do you want a rental property with outside kitchen? Will the property need to be beach front, the downtown area, or near night life? Does the rental have bikes and body boards available throughout your stay? Gather a list of "needs and wishes" from your company to help filter your search to the most appropriate rental.

Accessibility and Special Factors to consider

Do certain members of your group have specialized needs? Make sure that you remember and inquire about wheel chair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Fido Approved

Make sure you include your best friend! Pet policies are different at each property. Study descriptions thoroughly. Make sure that you study agreements and contracts carefully. Additional fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *prior to* you book!

Its Time to Search

Several internet resources exist to match visitors with rental home owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Morehead City local vacation rentals" for local rental home management companies. Besides offering exceptional rental properties, local agencies provide fantastic service..

Negotiate

Re-read the description to confirm the vacation home has everything required. If it is lacking, the rental management company may know of very similar properties that suit your style and budget..

Some property owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season stay, try asking for an additional night. This is more effective through the off-peak season when many vacation rentals sit empty.

Study the Entire Contract

You will have to know which services are included:

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the normal fee, vacationers have to pay local taxes when booking "Unparalleled water views! Nothing like this!", in addition to any other fees which may be required based upon their situation, including an animal charge, earlier check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heat fee for private pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Cancelling your Vacation Property

Make sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy prior to reserving. Rental home management companies and individual rental owners commonly offer their clients the option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of your standard rental rate, can provide travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent vacation property costs) for any days missed resulting from personal hospital emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated motel stay or extra gas.

Complete the Reservation

When you feel you've identified "the one", begin the reservation process. You will probably be required to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Get Contact Information

Put the rental manager's contact information into your smartphone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your visit.

Congrats! All that is left is making the most of your vacation!

During your Stay

  • To make certain no damages are linked to your visit, make a record of any trouble spots of the property. Call the rental manager immediately to report your findings. This will prevent disagreements during checkout.
  • When there's any ambiguity about parking, policies of the property, house access, swimming pool functions, etc... we recommend you ask the property manager promptly. A brief phone call prevents many headaches.
  • Be considerate of the community. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a vacation much more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Residents are a good source of advice. Who better to ask where to get the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure that you protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental secured when you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Tidy up a lttle bit. Even if you're paying a cleaning fee, The vacation home is required to be in good shape. Kitchen sinks stuffed with dirty dishes, surplus sand on the flooring and sticky messes ought to be addressed before leaving.
  • Once everything is out, begin a walk-through of the property to confirm no damage occurred during your remain. Whenever you can, do this walk-out inspection with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, make certain to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your rental? Most rental home management companies and rental search sites allow renters to provide comments. If the rental home and/or property manager was great, they will appreciate your compliments. If anything went wrong, we suggest being pleasant but completely honest with regards to your rental experience. The best property owners and managers will try hard to rectify the issue.

Learn from your Experience

Does everybody want to go back? If everything was fantastic, next year's vacation planning is going to be simple. Otherwise, you've gained valuable experience to help with another search.
