About this Property

Wake up in the morning with a serene, broad view of the beach in peaceful Pine Knoll Shores. “Bella Vita” is a roomy, shorefront townhome in Sea Grove, within the big resort area of Beacon’s Reach. Bella Vita offers two beach-side decks with enough furnishings to accept alfresco dining. The townhome has been freshly modernized with new appliances and furnishings; including beds. The kitchen is very well supplied as the owners spend numerous months here each year and adore to prepare; especially the generous variety of seafood that is conveniently available in the area. Bella Vita has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The fourth bedroom (2 bunk beds) is also a “beach room” or den that the children or young at heart will especially savor. The pool is literally about 50 yards from the front door. You will appreciate the fact that the unit is a townhome with no units above or below you and no elevator needed.

Pine Knoll Shores is nearly an undiscovered bliss on Bogue Banks; sandwiched between the much busier beaches of Emerald Isle and Atlantic Beach. The town is relatively modest as it was once a nature preserve, owned for decades by descendants of the Theodore Roosevelt family. The town actively protects the maritime forests here and our parking tons are not acres of hot concrete but are modest and shaded. Beacon’s Reach offers miles of natural walking/cycling trails and streets as well. The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is a 5 min. drive. Also the interesting towns of Beaufort and Morehead City are very close by. They both offer gorgeous waterfront downtowns for strolling and an array of exemplary dining options.

Sea Grove owners are a tight knit group and there are only a few units available for rental so it is important to be respectful of all residents. Because of low density and lack of close by public accesses, the beach is virtually never busy unlike other Bogue Banks locations. Bella Vita is an striking choice for a appealing beach hideaway. Occupancy is stringently limited to 8 individuals. Bella Vita is a peaceful hideaway for couples and families and you will likely leave with new friends by the end of the week – and we bet you’ll also be checking out the local real unit listings! We look forward to sharing our beach home with you and your family.

How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Many rental managers and vacation rental homes provide New Bern area travel magazines that feature money-saving promotions, either offered independently by merchants, or by way of a relationship between the property management company and the business itself. These guides may provide an excellent start to your rental home search.
  • Could you shift your dates? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of maximum prices.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the U.S. Armed forces may be able to get price reductions. Be sure to confirm with property management company to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a discount.
  • Is there a particular activity you are most looking forward to ? You'll receive the most value from a home that most thoroughly satisfies your ideal trip setting, even if it costs a bit more.
  • Give thought to purchasing trip insurance with your leasing agreement. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base rental price, offers buyers reimbursement of their travel expenses for any missed resulting from medical related emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unforeseen hotel room stay or extra gas.

The Rental Process

You may be shocked to learn just how many rental properties are available at your destination. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of global research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Vacation rentals are commonly owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Vacation home management companies leverage scale, equipment and practical experience to provide trouble-free operational management on behalf of the owner..

Seasoned New Bern vacationers have identified a few tips and tricks throughout the years when it comes to renting rentals, however most novices will be delighted to discover that many of these "methods" are in plain sight, if you know where to look.

Where to find and reserve the perfect vacation rental:

Before you book "UPDATE, MULTI-LEVEL WITH EASY OCEAN ACCESS", examine our short checklist of factors to consider.

The Sooner, The Better

New Bern vacation rentals start booking very early. To guarantee the very best selection of rental homes, we suggest searching and booking your New Bern vacation home 6-Twelve months before your travel dates, whenever feasible. Many households decide to start their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve holiday gatherings.

Find your Area and Decide Dates

Start by deciding which particular area of New Bern you want to explore, and the approximate travel dates.

Just How Many Beds?

How many family members are planning to share your vacation? Be mindful that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to figure out what is acceptable for the company. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available on the internet. Otherwise, communicate with the property owner before you reserve the home.

Commit to a Spending Limit

Does the chosen rental fit your budget during that prime Summer week? If a few groups or relatives are sharing the cost, make sure that each group knows their responsibility and has approved a maximum they are prepared to contribute. A single individual in your group will need to be responsible for gathering contributions and acknowledging responsibility for the complete rental fee at time of reservation.

Let's Talk Amenities

What amenities is the group trying to find? Do you just want a property with a swimming pool, hot tub or beach volleyball court? Do you wish to be far from the crowds, or near a city setting? Does the rental have bikes and body boards for use as part of your stay? Make a list of "necessities and desires" from your group to help narrow your search to the most suitable property.

Accessibility and Special Things to consider

Elderly guests will appreciate you for not renting a stairs-only property on the 3rd floor. Make sure you remember and ask about wheelchair access, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

Your Dog Deserves a Holiday, Too

Remember to include your furry family members. Even though many rentals permit canine companions, guidelines and charges fluctuate per rental. Read your contract very carefully! Charges may apply when pets are included.

Start the Search

Once the place, dates and people are decided, search multiple resources to get the best rental selection. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "New Bern local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local agencies will often have a unique selection of rentals daily and weekly.

Negotiate

When you have identified the rentalhome of your dreams, double check to make sure your trip dates are available.

Some property owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season trip, try getting an additional night. Off-peak season offers your greatest chance to make a deal for a reduced rate.

Study the Entire Agreement

You should know which services are included:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet
  • Phone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the standard fee, travelers will have to pay local taxes when booking "UPDATE, MULTI-LEVEL WITH EASY OCEAN ACCESS", in addition to any other additional fees which may be mandatory based upon their circumstances, including an animal charge, earlier check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private swimming pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Cancellation Policies

Cancellation policies vary for each vacation rental. Many vacation property contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance protects the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives you reassurance should tragedy strike.

Book your Rental Home

When you think you've found "the one", begin the booking process. You will likely be required to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Get Contact Information

Put the property manager's contact information into your smartphone and wallet for convenient access to answers during your visit.

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental home right away. We also recommend promptly getting in touch with the property manager with a report of any wear and tear, along with your request for any needed fixes.
  • Ask questions. You could need guidance for a gas fireplace, Television or spa tub. Get in touch with your rental manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save several hours of trouble.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Local people will likely be as friendly to you as you are considerate of them. 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. Locals can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best chicken wings, have a great date night, or the best places for wildlife?
  • Ensure you protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the home secured when you are away, just like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Make certain you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cabinetry and cabinets.
  • Make sure to walk through the rental home one final time and look for damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager wherever possible (this isn't always the case).. If the property owner is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your vacation? Nearly all rental management company sites seek reviews after your stay . Property owners and rental managers will appreciate your positive critiques. If something went wrong, we recommend being pleasant but genuine in regards to your experience. Top property owners and managers will try very hard to fix the issue.

Learn from your Stay

Did they enjoy their vacation? If everything was perfect, next year's trip planning is going to be quick. Otherwise, you have acquired valuable rental search experience that will help with another search.
