About this Property

The handsome Emerald Isle beaches are open and it's the ideal place to relax during this time. This sweet beach bungalow is just steps away from the beach and in the choice part of the island! We think you'll adore this home just as much as we do! We especially appreciate the dazzling and sunny open reverse floor plan and the location.

Emerald Isle is one of our favorite places in the whole world! When we drive over the bridge to the island, we feel like all our anxiety just melts away. We vacationed in Emerald Isle for 9 years before we decided to buy 'Summer Joy'. The home is so close to the beach and in such a safe, cozy, peaceful neighborhood. We knew this was a home where we could build so many family memories and we hope you will too. You can relish the calming sound of sea waves from one of two decks all day long. It's so convenient to everything too! It's less than a 3 min. walk to the beach, close to eateries, stores, grocery stores, and many other attractions. The EI bicycle path leads directly to our neighborhood and you can bicycle just about everywhere! There's a freshly modernized playground for the children in our neighborhood just down the block. We've outfitted the closet with games and books, and the kitchen has everything you'll need to feel at home. For your peaceful of mind, we also have an AWESOME unit manager in the neighborhood should any problems arise during your stay.

(This is a NON-SMOKING AND NO FAMILY PETS home.)

  • Just want to avoid the packed areas and cut costs? The off-peak shoulder seasons can offer fantastic rates on daily rental accommodations.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Some management companies provide discounts to vets and active-duty servicemembers. Make sure to ask property manager to see if your vacationing crew qualifies for a reduced price.
  • Some rental homes are practically catered to particular travelers, whether it's soundside units with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center condos with walkable access to restaurants or waterfront homes that have private boat launching areas. If there's a certain Morehead City atteaction which you just love, keep an eye out for properties that cater especially to your needs.
  • Vacation rental companies and individual rental owners often offer their customers an opportunity to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs between 1% - 5% of the basic term cost, offers guests reimbursement of their trip expenses for any nights missed due to health-related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unanticipated motel stay or extra fuel.

Seasoned Morehead City vacationers have discovered a number of tips and tricks over the years with regards to renting rental properties, however most newcomers will be delighted to find that several "tricks" are in plain sight, if you recognize where to look.

Searching for and booking the best rental:

Before you book "Beaches are OPEN! Bright, Clean, Affordable, and Steps to the Beach! ", review our short checklist of things to consider.

The Sooner, The Better

Morehead City vacation rentals start booking very early. For the greatest selection, begin your planning and search 6-Twelve months prior to your trip. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and reserve your rental..

Find your Area and Choose Dates

Agreement can often be difficult between members of the family, but the moment this difficult part is finished everything will begin to slide in place.

Exactly How Much Rental Do You Really Need?

Confirm who is going, and how many/what sort of bedroom configuration you'll need. Be aware that most rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the home's living room. It is important to determine what is suitable for your company. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically accessible on the internet. Otherwise, get in touch with the property manager before you book.

Have a Spending Limit

Does the preferred rental home suit your budget during that choice Summer week? If multiple groups or family members are sharing the cost, make sure that each group knows their obligations and has approved a maximum they are prepared to contribute. Most of the time, just one member of the group will be liable for making the full reservation and getting each person's contribution.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What amenities is your group looking for? Is a swimming pool mandatory?Do you want a rental home with open-air lounge? Will the unit need to be beach front, in the downtown area, or near night life? Are items like beach chairs, grills, umbrellas, carts or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental property rate? Build a list of priority features to facilitate narrow your search.

Accessability

Appropriate accessibility could make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are necessary, factor that into your search. The majority of rental postings include a list of amenities.

What About Furry Family Members?

Are you or other individuals in the group visiting with a four-legged friend? Dog policies are different at each rental. Read descriptions thoroughly. Type of pet, size and breeds could be limited. Study your agreement very carefully! Additional fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Searching the Internet

Many internet resources exist to match guests with rental home owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Morehead City local rentals" for local rental home management companies. Apart from having exceptional properties, local companies offer you top-notch service..

Negotiate

When you've spotted the rentalhome of your dreams, check to confirm your trip dates are available.

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season stay, try getting an extra night. Off-peak season offers your greatest opportunity to make a deal for a lower rate.

Go Through The Agreement

Learn which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Utilities
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies

", as well as any other additional fees which might be mandatory based upon their circumstances, including a pet fee, earlier check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heating fee for private pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Cancellation Policies

Cancellation policies vary for each rental. Many rental home contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergencies and weather events, It offers relief should catastrophe strike.

Reserve your Vacation Property

When everything seems correct, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. You will likely have to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Keep Your Property Manager's Info

Put the property manager's contact information into your cell phone and wallet for quick access to answers during your stay.
