Welcome! You’re on beach time at The Chatty Dolphin!

Rest, relax and recharge. We’re all about having fun in a casual beach ambiance and hope our home away from home provides this for you too!

A private hot tub overlooks the wooded backyard, gazing up into the tree canopy. Turn on the jets, changing color lights and waterfall and take in the generous sounds of nature. For added ambience, string lights adorning the sky can be turned on as well, and LED tiki torches come on each nighttime.

A new outdoor shower makes post beach clean-up of your family (including the four-legged ones) a breeze with hot and cold water, along with a close by hose for cleaning up beach gear.

With the addition of handcrafted (by the Host) cedar outdoor dining table and seating adjacent to the pizza oven. The wood fired pizza oven is a fun and amazing way to make dining an experience without ever going out. Dough, sauce and cheese to get started with are supplied along with all the tools and some books for how to get started and fun recipe ideas. Also great for baking bread, cedar planked salmon, pizookie cookies, cobbler, cast iron cinnamon rolls and more! YUM!

Winding down? Appreciate hot cocoa and cider supplied while roasting S’mores on the firepit. Local wine varietals and brews are available at close by stores for the 21+ crowd too. Firewood and hard wood for cooking are available for purchase at local grocery stores, Ace and Walmart; complimentary wood is not included at this time, as wet wood will not fire/light.

Out on the back deck are the calming sounds of the fountain coupled with handcrafted cedar bench and planter full of fresh herbs for your cooking enjoyment. A new stainless grille is on the back deck and ready to make your next lunch or dinner!

Inside the kitchen we have an Instant Pot, Ninja Blender and stainless Bread Machine. The bread machine can be set on a timer to make and bake so you wake to the enticing aroma of freshly baked bread. Sourdough boxed mix and additional bread flower and yeast are included along with a recipe ideas book. Nothing like fresh sourdough paired with the local catch on a coastal evening, or paired with some traditional local chowder.

Some of the kitchen appliances are a little older, but American made and still going strong. Nearly any spice or cookware item you’d wish to use while cooking is probably outfitted in this kitchen, as we appreciate to prepare and try new local recipes! In the summer the Ninja hooks us up with invigorating smoothies after visiting the close by farmers markets and in the fall and winter we find ourselves making soup with the Instant Pot and Ninja which saves time and money to spend on the fun stuff while traveling. A Keurig, k-cups, tea, sugar, honey and creamer are supplied.

In the master bedroom is a King size bed and attached bathroom with enormous shower. Plush bath towels (XXL bath sheets), hand towels and wash clothes are supplied two per each room. The other bedrooms are each Queen beds with a guest bathroom separating them (shower/tub unit). All linens are supplied, and everything is washed between guests, comforters and throw blankets too!

In the Laundry Nook you’ll find beach towels and spa towels for the hot tub. Broom and dustpan, handheld broom and dustpan, handheld vacuum, detergent, wool dryer balls, first aid kit. A stand-up vacuum is in a guest room closet also.

In the living room you’ll find two plush couches that are additional soft and comfortable! Apple TV which you can login to your subscription channels, i.e., Netflix, Prime, Disney +, Hulu and more is ready for you. In addition a DVD player with DVD’s is ready for use, and a CD player with CDs. Board games, books, an electric fireplace and cozy throw blankets make the space ready to savor. The fireplace can be adored with or without heat.

Munchies are covered with complimentary snacks on-hand in the snack tower.

Beach access: A few mins. golf cart ride to the public beach accesses on Ocean Drive (which have golf cart parking too!) or a ~14 min. walk.

Parking: Plenty of parking with room to part a boat also.

Location: A tad inland on the Sound side of Emerald Isle, adjacent to park with dog-friendly trails, disc golf and kayak launch. Dining such as Gaffer’s and Lazzara’s Pizza and Subs, ice cream and candy are just around the corner. Water park, fuel and go-karts close by. The home is located in a forested/wooded part of the island. We adore all the cool wildlife we get to see and experience with this location that we otherwise wouldn’t see elsewhere on the island; it’s a special place.

Emerald Isle is full of so many fun things to do, that it’s essentially essential to have a peaceful place to recharge! We’re that place. Thank you for considering your next stay at The Chatty Dolphin!

Tips to get the best New Bern vacation rental experience:

When to visit & When to book:

  • Reserve your vacation in Spring or Fall to enjoy gorgeous weather while saving money and avoiding crowds. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable during June, July, and August. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a New Bern vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation on the coast? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with loved ones at your favorite beach.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as soon as possible. Rental schedules generally become available a year in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many families reserve their Summer rental homes during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may qualify for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager if your family qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Booking websites typically offer renters an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which costs between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for program terms and fees.
  • Find a copy of your local New Bern area magazine upon arrival. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, travel guides contain discounts for local tours, shops, and attractions.

Planning and picking your New Bern vacation home:

  • First and foremost, have your family select trip dates and a maximum budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the bed configuration your group requires. Hot tub, wood fired pizza oven, fire pit, 41 acre park out back has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed types is regularly accessible online. If you don't see them listed, email or call the host before you reserve your rental. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which usually includes pull out couches in living rooms.
  • Does your family require special amenities? Most rental websites include amenity lists and search filters. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find your ideal rental.
  • Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Confirm all required amenities are available before booking
  • Some rental properties allow pets, and others do not. Acceptable types of pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and additional costs may apply. Ask the host about pet restrictions before booking.

More considerations for your visit:

  • Be sure you get the property manager's phone number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental home.
  • To make sure that no damages are attributed to your visit, inspect the rental for any problem areas during check in. Make contact with the host right away to report your findings. If there is a dispute, having a record of concerns and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • Property managers are there to help! Don't be shy to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Respect your neighbors. Frequently, surrounding homes are filled by local residents. Respecting noise limits 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 order delicious takeout, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Lock your rental while you are out and about. Keep your property safe!
  • Re-check the vacation property to confirm that you've packed everything at check-out. Re-check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Inspect the rental a final time and look for damages to contents or the property itself. We recommend walking through with the host whenever possible. If the manager isn't available, remember to take pictures of the property to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your family have a wonderful stay? Most vacation rental websites make it easy for travelers to provide comments. If your rental and/or host was great, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was inoperable and they failed to fix it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make a note as part of your comments.
