We are on a flat corner lot and have a back driveway that can accommodate a modest boat trailer, please let us know if you will be bringing a boat. There are two parking pads at the front with space for 4 cars.

EASY BEACH ACCESS: The closest beach access is to the left of the home and only 100 steps away and is a sand path with no steps (super simple for the kiddos). The other is to the right of the home and is a boardwalk with a few steps up and a few steps down.

FRIDAY Check-in/check-out: Get on and off the island before the crazy weekend traffic and make a run to the grocery store before everybody else! Check-In time is 4 pm and check-out time is 10 am. Because cleaning well between guests is important to us, we are unable to adjust the check-in and check-out times for our guests. Thank you for your understanding.

TOWELS & LINENS PROVIDED: Bath towels, bedsheets and pillowcases are included at no charge to our guests. NOTE: Bring your own beach towels and beach chairs, or you may arrange to rent these from Island Essentials.

FAST WIFI! We sometimes work and school from the beach, so we’ve made sure to have High-speed Wifi throughout the home with a mesh system. All TVs have Roku attached. There is a workstation/desk downstairs.

NO SMOKING/VAPING. We request that guests do not smoke/vape near the home including the decks because some smoke smell inevitably finds its way into the home and we pride ourselves on providing a "smoke-complimentary" experience as much as possible. Smoke/vape outside only and please try to keep it to the back yard.

DOG FRIENDLY. We welcome well behaved family dogs! No weight limit, up to two. We provide poop baggies and ask owners to promptly clean up after their dogs. Per town regulations, dogs must be leashed outdoors and on the beach.

SECURITY. We have 4 exterior security video cameras that are always on 24/7, two at the front and 2 at the back of the home.

We will ask all reservations to confirm the max. number of 10 guests with an e-mail giving the names of all the guests in their group. We also ask the person making the reservation to use the Vacation Rental By Owner platform to submit a copy of their photo ID within 24 hours of booking to avoid cancellation of the reservation.

Blu Skyz is located on a flat section of Ocean Drive, which is a great street to walk, bicycle or rollerblade. Emerald Isle is bicycle-friendly with bicycle paths along the major roads and easy bicycle rental if you cannot bring your own. Bicycle or walk to the Emerald Plant. Shopping 2.5 miles away. You can walk conveniently to the pier via the beach (about 1.5 mile away). Emerald Plant. Shopping, Food Lion or Publix, water park, cinema, shopping, mini-golf, eateries, canoe and kayak units and surf shop are only 2-3 miles away.

You'll often find excellent tidal pools on our beach during low tide. As with any beach (especially one with sandbars and without lifeguards), know what to do in terms of rip tides. On Emerald Isle, we don't usually get the monster waves you see on the outer banks, but everybody should know about rip tides. Bring flashlights to look for crabs at nighttime and a pair of binoculars to watch the dolphins or birdwatch.

Fishing: The Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier is a 1.5-mile walk on the beach to right. Surf fishing is trendy especially when the beaches are peaceful.

We’ve tried to stock the kitchen with necessary silverware and cookware. If anything is missing, please tell us so we can address the problem.

How to find the best vacation rental experience:

Find your perfect rental:

  • Book your rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules generally become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many groups book their Summer rental homes during Winter holiday gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summer months are the most expensive season in Emerald Isle. Reserve your New Bern vacation in the Fall or Spring to enjoy warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the high season. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a New Bern 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 owners offer discounts for active duty military and veterans. Ask your host or property manager if special offers are available for your group.
  • Property management companies often offer their guests an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost anywhere between 1% - 5% of the booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed trip time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for specifics.
  • Look for your local New Bern visitors guide when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores and visitor centers. In addition to great local information, travel guides have coupons for local accommodations, restaurants and tours.

How to choose the best vacation rental in the New Bern area:

  • First and foremost, have your group select a vacation week and a max budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the bed configuration you need. 2nd Row, Oceanview, Dog Friendly, 4 BD/3BA, Friday in/out, Game Room, Office has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our New Bern rentals search.
  • Specific information regarding bedrooms and bed types is commonly available on booking pages. If they are not listed, contact the property manager before reserving your rental. Remember that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull out couches in living rooms. You will need to work out what configuration is optimal for your vacation family.
  • Some rental properties allow pets, but others do not. Acceptable types of dog or cat, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added charges may apply. Ask your host about allowable breeds and types before booking.
  • If there's an individual New Bern destination you long to visit, keep an eye out for homes that are either near by, or those that cater to your needs.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. .

Considerations for your stay:

  • Be sure you get the property manager's contact number and check in/check out procedures for your rental property. Store the host's information in your smartphone.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, A/V setup or kitchen appliance. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent quite a few difficulties.
  • Ensure you protect the property owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are gone, just like you would back home.
  • During check-in, document any damages to the property and immediately contact the property manager. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Be respectful. Frequently, surrounding homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay significantly more pleasurable.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Locals can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to find the best bike paths, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before departing, walk through the rental property to reconfirm you've collected all personal items. Remember to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • After your trip, leave a review! Property managers rely on great reviews to stimulate more reservations. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something wasn't right, other vacationing families will appreciate that you share your experience find their best vacation home. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to fix it.
