About this Property

  • Cottage


Kolby's Kottage is one of the last over the water bungalows on the safe and protected Radio Island Causeway between Morehead City and Beaufort NC. Open the front door and you will be amazed at the spectacular view like no other. The best feature of this home is being directly over the water as the tide rises and falls. Standing on the dock, you can see the flag at Fort Macon, Carrot Island grazing horses and the Atlantic Ocean. This 1300 square-foot Cottage was constructed in the 1930s and refreshed in 2022. The bungalow has modern amenities, granite countertops and tile baths yet the integrity of the 1930s is ever present. Kolby's bungalow has the original wood floor, tongue and groove wood walls and a view that is indescribable! Sleeps 8, a unique set up of open areas (three queens, two single trundle beds) Park your boat on the floating dock and cruise to Beaufort inlet (1 mile) Beaufort waterfront or Morehead city waterfront....go fishing or kayaking from your dock… The options are limitless. Ideal for afternoon cruises and /or dining. Watch dolphins feed from the comfort of your living room. The huge cavernous dock is overlooking the western entrance of Taylor's Creek and provides a spectacular sunset every evening. Come and share this unique experience on the Crystal Coast.

My husband and I along with daughter Kolby have traveled extensively and have brought what we believe to be simple luxury. We all three welcome you to relax in Kolby's Kottage, an experience you won't forget.

New Bern vacation rental home tips and tricks:

When to visit & When to reserve a New Bern rental home:

  • Book your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families book their Summer rental homes during Winter holiday get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • To find the best value, change your vacation to the Spring or Fall seasons. May, September, and even October offer warm weather, , and reduced traffic. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a New Bern vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with friends and family at your favorite beach.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective vacation rental company or host whether your group qualifies for a discount.
  • Property managers usually offer customers an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed time as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for details.
  • Look for your local visitors guide when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great articles, travel guides contain discounts for local tours and attractions.

Planning and choosing the rightrental:

  • Select vacation dates and spending budget.
  • Note the number beds and the bed configuration you need. Cottage built over the water!! Newly renovated! has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed counts & types is usually available on booking pages. If not, contact the property manager before reserving the property. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull out couches in living rooms.
  • If your group is traveling with pets, you must book a rental that allows animals. Make sure to ask for information on breed, size, and type restrictions. Often, hosts charge pet deposits and fees.
  • If there's a certain New Bern beach you are enamored with, keep an eye out for homes that are either close by, or those that cater to your needs.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.

More considerations:

  • Add the property manager's phone number to your phone. Understand and take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, stereo or kitchen appliance. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent lots of problems.
  • Lock your rental home while you're out. Keep your property safe!
  • During arrival, make note of any damages to the rental property and immediately alert the property manager. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You will magnify your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are often an incredible source for finding the best local beaches.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Local residents can frequently point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to find the best bike paths, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • On check-out day, complete a walk-through to confirm you have not forget any personal items. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did your group have a fantastic vacation? Many rental management companies make it easy for vacationers to provide comments. If your rental property and/or property manager was terrific, they would love to hear about it. If anything was wrong and they failed to address it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
