About this Property

The superb 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 peerless part of the island! We think you'll appreciate this home just as much as we do! We especially appreciate the radiant 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, whimsical, peaceful neighborhood. We knew this was a home where we could build so many family memories and we hope you will too. You can adore 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 remodeled 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 tranquility 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.)

Money-saving Tips

  • Search for the tourism bureau where you want to visit. Many established tourism bureaus will offer you guides with deals for rental properties, dining and activities. These guides may provide a great start to your rental home search.
  • Are your travel dates flexible? Off-season rates are usually a fraction of maximum costs.
  • Many rental companies and owners offer special discounts for active duty and veteran men and women of the US Military, or repeat visitors of the same property. Be sure to confirm with property manager to see if your travelling group is eligible for a reduction.
  • Is there a specific activity you are most anticipating during your stay? If there's a specific Morehead City atteaction you simply love, keep an eye out for rentals that cater especially to you.
  • Give thought to purchasing trip insurance along with your lease contract. Trip insurance, which usually costs between 1% - 5% of the basic rental cost, offers buyers reimbursement of their rental costs for any missed a result of personal medical related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unexpected hotel stay or extra gasoline.

How to Book a Rental Home

Some people are surprised to discover just how many rental homes are available in their area of interest. Rental home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of essential search sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

Rental homes are usually owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Property management companies are well-liked by property owners because they coordinate the advertising and operations..

Seasoned Morehead City vacationers have figured out a handful of tips and tricks throughout the years when it comes to renting vacation homes, however most novices will be delighted to realize that many of these "strategies" are in plain sight, if you know where to search.

How to find and reserve the perfect vacation home:

Before you start to book "Beaches are OPEN! Bright, Clean, Affordable, and Steps to the Beach! ", read through our brief collection of issues to consider.

Start Your Search Early

Morehead City vacation homes start booking early. Reserving your vacation property 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, when possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation home..

Find your Spot and Identify Dates

Oftentimes, the hardest portion of preparing for your vacation is figuring out where to search, and when. As soon as the big decisions are resolved, everything else is more straightforward.

Just How Much Rental home Do You Really Need?

Determine who is traveling, and how many/what type of bedroom setup you should have. Keep in mind that a lot of homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the family room. You will need to figure out what is most appropriate for your family. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available on the internet. Otherwise, contact the property manager before you book.

Exactly What Are You Willing to Spend?

Make certain "Beaches are OPEN! Bright, Clean, Affordable, and Steps to the Beach! " satisfies your budget *during your desired dates*. Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from friends and family prior to booking a pricey rental home. Most rental agreements call for a single individual to be in charge of the full reservation.

Let's Talk Amenities

What home features is the family searching for? Do you primarily want a rental with a pool, jacuzzi or beach volleyball court? Does the unit need to be beach front, the downtown area, or close to restaurants? Will the property have bicycles and beach toys for use throughout your stay? Gather a list of prioritized "necessities and desires" from your group to help narrow your search to the most suitable rental.

Special Concerns

In some cases the elder generation has trouble with stairs. Ensure that you remember and inquire about wheelchair access, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Do not forget to include your companion! Dog policies are different at each property. Study descriptions carefully. Many limitations may possibly eliminate a prospective rental home. Read your contract thoroughly! Additional fees or deposits may be applied to your contract.

Searching the Internet

. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Morehead City local rental properties" for local property management companies. Local property management companies proudly offer an exceptional vacation experience.

Negotiate

When you have located your dream rental, make sure your trip dates are available.

While not true for all rental homes, many owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Off-peak weeks will probably be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Study The Agreement

  • Utility bills

  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

Ensure that your price includes all state taxes and fees.

Do you know the Cancellation Policy?

Be sure you understand the cancellation policy before booking. You'll likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance guards the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It offers relief should disaster strike.

Complete the Booking

When everything looks correct, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. Remember that most rental contracts require a considerable rental deposit and/or security deposit to protect the property owner.

Get Contact Details

Be sure to get the property manager's contact telephone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We recommend saving the contact's details in your cell phone and wallet.

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your visit!

  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure to protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the property locked up 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 cupboards and wardrobes.
  • Make sure to walk through the rental home one last time and look for property damage. When possible, do this walk-out review with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, make certain to take photos of the property to record its condition.

If something went wrong, we suggest being pleasant but honest regarding your rental experience. Top property owners and managers will work very hard to correct the issue.
