About this Property

"Slice of Life" is a unique and thoroughly remodeled duplex/bungalow located three homes from the beach. Walk out the door and past two homes to the beach access located at the end of the street. It's about a one min. walk to have sand between your toes.

This 2 bedroom/1 bath beach getaway is the south side of a duplex and an ideal hideaway for couples and modest families. The home is ground level so there are no stairs to climb. This is especially convenient for senior citizens and families with modest children. The home was completely refurbished a few years ago. Some of the updates and additions include, new ceramic tile floors all over, a completely new kitchen and appliances, new bathroom fixtures, including a ceramic tile shower, a new central heat/air system, screened doors, an enclosed hot/cold outdoor shower, and a laundry.

How to get the best deal on your rental

  • Can you switch your trip dates? The off-peak seasons can offer amazing rates on daily rental properties.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? A number of vacation rental companies provide discounted rates to veterans and active-duty forces. Make sure to confirm with property manager to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a reduction.
  • Some rental properties are basically catered to particular visitors, whether it's oceanside units with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center condos with nearby access to shopping or waterfront homes that have their own kiteboarding launching areas. You'll receive the most value from a rental that most closely matches your ideal vacation setting, regardless if it costs a bit more.
  • Rental companies and individual rental owners typically offer their clients an opportunity to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic vacation rental cost, provides visitors reimbursement of their trip costs for any nights missed resulting from personal health-related emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unplanned motel stay or additional gas.

The Rental Process

Some people are shocked to discover the number of rentals are available in New Bern. Rental home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of online search sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

The majority of vacation homes in New Bern are privately operated and many are represented by established local property management companies. Property management companies are well-liked by rental owners mainly because they manage the online marketing and operations..

Seasoned New Bern vacationers have identified a number of tips and tricks throughout the years when it comes to renting vacation rentals, however many novices will be delighted to learn that many of these "tips" are in plain sight, if you recognize how to look.

Finding and reserving the best vacation property:

Before you book "One Minute Walk to the Beach in Emerald Isle!", read through our brief list of considerations.

The Sooner You Start, The Better The Choices

Like many trendy vacation spots, In New Bern the best rental homes are booked early. Reserving your rental 6-12 months in advance is highly recommended, whenever possible. Holiday gatherings are a great time for groups to plan their Summer vacations..

Select a Town and Time

Sometimes, the hardest portion of organizing your trip is deciding where to go, and when. When the big decisions are tackled, the rest is simplier and easier.

How Many Bedrooms?

How many family members are planning to share your trip? Be mindful that a lot of rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the family room. It is important to determine what is suitable for your family. Generally vacation home listings will outline each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Stay on a Budget

Does the preferred rental home suit your budget during that choice Summer week? If many individuals or loved ones are sharing the cost, make sure that each group knows their responsibilities and has approved a maximum they are prepared to contribute. A single individual in your company will need to be responsible for collecting payments and accepting responsibility for the complete rental payment at time of reservation.

Its All About Amenities

What home features is the family looking for? Is a screened-in porch a necessity? Will the unit need to be oceanfront, downtown, or in close proximity to wildlife? Are bed linens offered with the rental agreement, or do you need to provide your own? Make a list of priority features to help narrow your search.

Accessibility and Special Factors to consider

Do certain members of your crew have specialized needs? If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are required, factor that into your search. The majority of rental postings will include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Are you or other individuals in the crew visiting with a dog? Pets are welcome at a number of rentals, but policies differ. Study your contract thoroughly! Additional charges may apply when animals are included.

Searching the Internet

. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "New Bern local vacation rentals" for local rental home management companies. Local rental home management companies take pride in an exceptional vacation experience.

Negotiate

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

Some rental home owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable week, try asking for an extra night. Your best possibility of a reduced rate will be changing to an off-season week.

Read the Entire Agreement

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

  • Electric bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

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

Cancelling your Rental Home

Cancellation policies are different with each rental. Many rental home contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental rate, provides travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any days missed as a consequence of personal health related emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unforeseen motel stay or additional gas.

Reserve your Rental

When everything seems right, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. Do not forget that most rental agreements require a considerable rental down payment and/or security deposit to safeguard the rental home owner.

Where to Get Help

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

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

During your Stay

  • To make certain no damages are linked to your visit, create a record of any problem areas of the property. If you discover damages, or if repairs are required call the home manager straight away. This can protect against disputes during check out.
  • Ask questions. You could need instructions for a fireplace, Television or jacuzzi. Get in touch with your rental manager. They are there to help. A brief phone call helps prevent many headaches.
  • Be respectful of the community. . Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your home.
  • Ask a local. Natives can frequently point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Ensure you protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • Always make sure that you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cabinetry and wardrobes.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one final time and look for property damage. If possible, do this walk-out inspection with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you rate your experience? Nearly all vacation rental web sites ask for reviews after your stay . Rental owners and property managers will appreciate your favorable critiques. If something was wrong and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or when the rental wasn't as described, you may want to make it a point in your review.

Learn from your Experience
