About this Property

  • Private vacation home

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

Rest, recharge, and relax. 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 ample 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 a cedar outdoor dining table and seating for six adjacent to the pizza oven. The wood fired 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 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 included 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 relaxing sounds of the fountain coupled with a 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 lunch or dinner!

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 can wake to the enticing aroma of freshly baked bread. Sourdough boxed mix and additional bread flower and yeast are supplied along with a recipe 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 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 included, and everything is washed between guests, comforters/duvets 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 appreciate. 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 park 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 essential to have a peaceful place to recharge! We’re that place, cozy and welcoming on a peaceful street. Thank you for considering your next stay at The Chatty Dolphin!

Booking the best rental experience:

How to get the best value:

  • The earlier you can book, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental homes are booked early. Booking your rental property six to twelve months before your vacation is recommended. Holiday gatherings are excellent times to plan and book your rental property.
  • To get the best value, try changing your group's vacation to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and October offer warm weather, , and reduced traffic. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve a beach front rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the high season. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a New Bern vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years 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 property management company or host whether your family qualifies for a special promotion or discount.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer their guests an option to add vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed time as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for more information.
  • Often, property management companies and vacation rental houses supply New Bern area visitor guide magazines which often include special offers, either offered directly by local companies, or through a relationship with the property management company and the business itself. You can also find New Bern area magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Planning and choosing the perfect New Bern rental home:

  • Choose your vacation dates and spending budget.
  • Note the number beds and the bed configuration your family needs. Hot tub, wood fired pizza oven, fire pit, 41 acre park out back! has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our New Bern rentals search.
  • Specific information about bedrooms and bed counts & types is almost always available online. Otherwise, call the host before you book the vacation home. Note that most property listings specify maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds. You'll need to establish what bed configuration is suitable for your vacation.
  • Are you traveling with furry, four-legged family members? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Additional fees or costs applied to your agreement.
  • Does your family require unique amenities? Most websites include amenity lists and search filters. Filtering by amenity will allow you to quickly find the perfect rental home.
  • Suitable accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Make certain to inquire about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.

More considerations:

  • Take a copy of the host's phone number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental. Put the manager's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Property managers are there to help! Feel free to ask questions during your stay.
  • Lock your vacation home while you are out. Protect your property!
  • To make certain damages are not attributed to your family's stay, note any problem areas when you arrive. Contact the host right away to relay any damages. If there is a dispute, having a record of issues and contact attempts will be helpful.
  • Respect your neighbors. Frequently, nearby homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting late-night noise limits and parking regulations reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Local residents can usually help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to go for the best drinks, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Upon check-out, complete a final walk-through to confirm you didn't leave anything behind. Re-check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Inspect the rental one final time and look for any damage. We suggest walking through with the host whenever possible. If the host is not available, ensure that you take photos and video of the rental to record its condition.
  • Leave feedback! Property owners rely on great feedback to stimulate future reservations. They'll be much obliged for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went awry, other vacationers will be thankful you shared your feedback and help them have the best future vacation. Please be fair with your feedback If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to fix it.
