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

Rest, relax and recharge. We’re all about having fun in a casual beach setting and hope our home away from home provides this for you too! The area has so much to offer and this location is unique to the island as a nature and animal lover's delight! Pet friendly with additional fee. Eateries right around the corner, and 41 acre park just outside the backyard!

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 additional ambience, string lights adorning the sky can be turned on as well, and LED tiki torches come on each nighttime.

An 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 an outdoor dining table, family seating for six is adjacent to the wood fired pizza oven. The pizza oven is a fun and fantastic way to make dining an experience without ever going out. Dough, sauce and cheese to get started with are included along with all the tools and some books for how-to 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. S'mores materials all supplied! Firewood and hard wood for cooking are available for purchase at local grocery stores, Ace and Walmart; a bundle of complimentary hard wood is supplied to get you started.

On the back deck are the relaxing sounds of the fountain coupled with handcrafted cedar bench and planter full of fresh herbs for your cooking enjoyment. A stainless grille is on the back deck and ready to make your next meal.

Inside the kitchen we have an Instant Pot, Ninja Blender and Bread Machine. The bread machine can be set on a timer to make and bake so you wake to the enticing aroma of fresh 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 supplied in this kitchen, as we appreciate to prepare and try new local recipes! Stainless pans, pots and cookware. In the summer the Ninja hooks us up with exhilarating 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 Kuerig, k-cups, tea, sugar, honey and creamer are supplied.

In the master bedroom is a King size bed and attached bathroom with huge 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 included, and everything is washed between guests, comforter/duvet covers and all 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 device 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 appreciate. The fireplace can be adored with or without heat.

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

Beach access: A few mins. drive to the public beach accesses on Ocean Drive (which has golf cart parking too, if you're renting a golf cart) or a ~14 min. walk.

Parking: Plenty of parking on the driveway with room to park a boat also. (Please, no parking on the grass/yard).

Location: A tad inland on the Sound side of Emerald Isle, adjacent to 41-acre 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. 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 essential to have a peaceful place to recharge! We’re that place, cozy and on a peaceful street. Thank you for considering your next stay at The Chatty Dolphin!

Finding the best New Bern vacation property experience:

Finding the best rental home value:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in Emerald Isle. Booking your vacation rental in Fall or Spring is an excellent way to save money on your vacation rental. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of suitable homes.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules usually become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many groups book their Summer rentals during holiday get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Property management companies sometimes offer rate reductions for veterans and active duty military. It's always a good idea to check with your property manager to see if rate reductions are available for your group.
  • Property management companies usually offer renters an option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually will cost 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed trip time as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a welcome relief if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for more information.
  • Find a copy of your local New Bern area magazine when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and fuel stations. In addition to great local articles, travel guides have deals for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.

How to select the best vacation home in Emerald Isle:

  • Start by selecting a vacation week and a maximum budget.
  • Determine how many beds and what type of bedroom configuration your family requires. Family Entertainment Beach House, Hot tub has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Specific information about bedrooms and bed counts is usually available online. If not, email the host before you book the property. Remember that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in living rooms.
  • Visiting for a specific event or attraction? Try a map search to locate nearby properties.
  • Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for those with limited mobility. .
  • If your group is bringing pets, you'll need to search for a pet-friendly vacation rental. Request details on breed, weight, and type requirements. Be aware that some property managers require additional pet deposits and fees.

Tips to have a great stay:

  • Take a copy of the property manager's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your . We recommend storing the manager's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • During arrival, note any issues with the rental property and immediately contact the property manager. Keep records of all coorespondence.
  • Hosts are available to help! Feel free to ask questions during your stay.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Often, nearby homes are occupied by local residents. Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations is the right thing to do.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can usually help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to take kids for a treat, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Lock your rental home while you are away. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before departing, walk through the property to make sure you've collected all belongings. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your group have a excellent vacation? Many vacation rental websites make it easy for vacationers to provide comments. If your rental and/or property manager was wonderful, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was inoperable and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't described correctly, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
