About this Property

This is one of the very few areas of Emerald isle that still has a Great Beach at high tide after Hurricane Florence. Largest Pool on Emerald Isle.

PLEASE CONTACT OWNER 'BEFORE' SUBMITTING ANY RESERVATION REQUEST!!!

OWNER ALWAYS WANTS TO COMMUNICATE WITH ALL GUESTS AND NEEDS TO APPROVE ALL GUESTS BEFORE PROCEEDING TO A RESERVATION. OWNER ALSO WANTS TO BE SURE TO ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS FIRST. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! :-)
2020 Reservations: Held with a $200 Non-returnable deposit until Nov.1. Then on Nov 1, first 50% of balance is due. Remaining 50% of balance is due (60) days before Check-in date. Contact owner.

Feel Free to call owner (Don) with any questions.

• LARGEST PRIVATE POOL on EMERALD ISLE!!!
Pool measures 44' long x 16' wide. The Pool design has wide, shallow steps/entrance-way at both ends which makes it great for children and the elderly. It is 4 feet deep. It also has a floating rope that divides the pool down the middle so that you have your own side for privacy. Our Concrete decking (surrounding the pool) is cool on the feet (unlike TREX Decking that other homes use which is hot).
• NO CHARGE for POOL HEATING: in May/June and Sept/Oct when heat is needed (Saves you over $550!
…because MOST homes in Emerald Isle charge $550 to $600 ‘additional’ for Pool Heating!!! We don’t!!!)
(Pool Heater operable only when the air temperature is above 60 degrees...so the month of April is very
iffy if the pool will be warm enough for swimming. That is why our ‘APRIL’ COSTS are comparable to homes 'without' a pool). Pool heating is not at all necessary for the months of July/Aug.

Money Saving Strategies

  • Find the official tourism bureau in the area you want to travel. Most tourism bureaus supply guides with savings for vacation rentals, restaurants and activities. These guides provide a good start to your rental home search.
  • Just want to stay away from crowds of people and save cash? Shoulder seasons special offer impressive deals.
  • Are you a military veteran? Plenty of management companies provide markdowns to veterans and active-duty servicemembers. Be sure to confirm with vacation rental company to see if your travelling group qualifies for a reduced price.
  • Some properties are basically catered to particular travelers, whether it is beachfront rentals with pier passes, city-center condos with walkable access to shopping or waterfront homes that have their own boat launching areas. Make sure that you prioritize your proximity to the activities and interesting attractions you are most interested in.
  • Vacation rental companies and individual home owners frequently offer their clients an opportunity to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base stay cost, provides vacationers reimbursement of their trip costs for any missed as a consequence of health-related emergencies or storms, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unforeseen motel stay or extra gas. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

How to Book a Vacation Home

Newcomers are sometimes surprised at the number and wide range of daily, weekly and monthly rental homes available in the Morehead City area. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of online search sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Rental homes are usually owner operated or managed by property management companies. Property management companies are well-liked by property owners because they manage the online marketing and operations..

We've assembled a short guide to help you get the most from your rental property experience.

Finding and reserving the perfect rental:

Before you decide to book "OCEANFRONT HOUSE with HEATED POOL, AMAZING VIEWS & BEST LOCATION!! Emerald Isle", read through our short list of things to consider.

Start Your Search Early

Morehead City rentals start booking very early. To assure the very best choice of vacation homes, we advise searching and booking your Morehead City rental home 6-12 months in advance, whenever feasible. Many groups plan to start their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year gatherings.

Pick your Area and Travel Week

Begin by picking which particular area of Morehead City you would like to browse, and the choose trip dates.

Choosing an Appropriately-Sized Vacation rental

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Keep in mind that a lot of homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the family room. You will need to determine what is most appropriate for your company. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually accessible on the internet. Otherwise, communicate with the property owner before you book.

Decide on Your Budget

Most vacation rentals are marketed with a cost range. Confirm the rate for your preferred stay. It could be at the high end of the range. Make sure to get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends before booking an expensive rental property. One member of your group will need to be in charge of gathering contributions and agreeing to responsibility for the entire rental price at time of reservation.

Property Amenities

What amenities is your family searching for? Do you primarily desire a property with a swimming pool, spa or volleyball court? Are you more interested in wildlife or night life? Are mattress sheets offered with the rental, or will you need to take your own? Build a list of priority features to help filter your search.

Accessability

Adequate access could make or break a trip for the less-mobile. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is required, include that into your search. Nearly all rental home postings will include a list of amenities.

Think About Furry Family Members?

Are you or other people in the party travelling with a dog or cat? Pets are welcome at a number of rental homes, but guidelines can vary. Type of animal, size and breeds could be limited. Make sure you read agreements and contracts carefully. Extra fees or costs may be applied to your contract. If in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Where to Search

. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Morehead City local vacation homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local rental management companies take pride in a first-class rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

When you have spotted the rentalhome of your dreams, make sure your travel dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Off-peak weeks will probably be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

Read The Contract

You really should know which services are included:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

Get a total that includes taxes, pet and other additional fees.

Cancellation Policies

Cancellation policies are different with each property. Property management companies and individual property owners often offer their clients the option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the standard rental cost, can provide travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent vacation property costs) for any days missed resulting from personal health emergencies or storms, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unexpected motel stay or additional gas.

Reserve It

When everything seems correct, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. Keep in mind that most rental contracts will require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to protect the rental home owner.

Where to Get Assistance

Don't forget to get the manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. We recommend saving the contact's details in your smart phone and wallet.

Congrats on reserving your rental! You're on the way to a terrific vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph on your arrival. To make sure no damages are associated with your visit, make a record of any trouble spots of the rental. Call the property manager immediately to report your observations. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts could be helpful.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a gas fireplace, TV or hot tub. Call your home manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save hours of hassle.
  • Please be considerate of the neighborhood. Often, surrounding residences are occupied by permanent residents. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Natives can often point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure to protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • Make sure you've packed all your things. Sweep every room in the house for forgotten possessions. Inspect bath rooms, the garage, cabinets, backyards, the pool area, and anywhere else your gear might "hide".
  • Make sure to walk through the rental home one final time and look for property damage. If at all possible, do this walk-out review with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you feel about your stay? Just about all vacation rental management companies and vacation rental websites allow travellers to offer feedback. If the vacation rental and/or property manager was top-notch, they will likely appreciate your compliments. If something went wrong, we recommend being understanding but straightforward with regards to rental experience. The best property owners and managers will work very hard to fix the issue.

Iterate

Does everyone want to re-book next year? Maybe everything ended up being ideal and you are excited to re-book the rental for next year. Otherwise, you've acquired valuable rental search experience that can help with your next search.
