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 striking 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; a bundle of complimentary hard wood is included to get you started.

Out on the back deck are the calming 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 outfitted in this kitchen, as we adore 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 Keurig, k-cups, tea, sugar, honey and creamer are supplied.

In the master bedroom is a King size bed and attached bathroom with sizable shower. Plush bath towels (XXL bath sheets), hand towels and wash clothes are included 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/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 appreciated 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 appreciate 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!

Tricks and tips to get the perfect vacation home experience:

When to visit & When to reserve a Emerald Isle rental home:

  • Booking in Spring or Fall is one of our best tips for saving money on your vacation. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of suitable properties.
  • In the New Bern area, The earlier you can book a vacation home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable properties are reserved early. Reserving your rental property up to 12 months before your vacation is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to search for and book your vacation rental.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property owner or host if your family qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Property managers often offer their guests an option to purchase vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which costs between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any missed days as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for program terms and fees.
  • Often, rental management companies and vacation rental houses supply New Bern area visitors guides which will include special offers, either offered independently by local businesses, or through a relationship with the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find New Bern area magazine and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Selecting and booking a perfectrental home:

  • Start by selecting trip dates and a maximum budget.
  • Note the number beds and the bed configuration your family requires. Hot tub, wood fired pizza oven, fire pit, 41 acre park out back! has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
  • Specific details about bedrooms and bed types is commonly available online. If they are not listed, email the property manager before reserving the property. Note that most property listings specify maximum guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches and bunk beds.
  • If there's a certain New Bern destination you simply love, look for properties that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your desires.
  • Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Make certain to inquire about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • 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. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Ask your property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Extra fees or could be applied to your contract.

Additional considerations:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before traveling. Take a printed copy, and save the directions to your smartphone.
  • Record any issues with the rental upon arrival, and immediately send them to the property manager. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that can be valuable if damages are attributed to your stay.
  • Hosts are there to help! Don't be shy to ask questions during your stay.
  • Be respectful. Frequently, adjacent homes are filled by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay significantly more pleasurable.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can typically help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to get the best breakfast in town, have a great night out, or the best spots for fishing?
  • Lock your vacation home while you're out and about. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
  • At departure, complete a walk-through to confirm you haven't leave anything behind. Make sure to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Please make sure to walk through the property one final time and scan for any damage. We advise walking through with the host whenever you can. If the manager is not available, remember to take photos and video of the rental to record its condition.
  • Did you have a wonderful vacation? Many rental management companies make it easy for clients to provide feedback. If your rental property and/or host was fantastic, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was wrong and they failed to correct it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your feedback.
