Handsome DIRECT OCEAN FRONT duplex a few hundred yards from the only Fishing Pier on the west end of the island. Both Whithaven 1 & Whithaven 2 are owned by the Whitley family. The Oceanana Pier is just steps away from 'Whithavens' additional enormous deck. Each side has 3 BR's (king, queen and 2 twins) and 2 1/2 baths plus an additional sizable L shaped couch. The kids appreciate sleeping on the couch too so everybody can appreciate themselves. (dog friendly too with additional pet fee).

During our covid period remodel, the whole unit was repainted, new ceilings and more upgrades plus increased parking up front from renovating our entry enclosure is sure to please. We use lock boxes for keys so no in person contact is standard for our units. We have an outside enclosed shower with HOT and cold water to rinse off after the beach or to use for your everyday shower (which I highly recommend and great for family pets too).

As an added feature we newly installed a UVC germicidal light in the ductwork to kill any viruses or mold to help keep the air clean and provide help for allergy suffers.

We provide pretty much everything you need to walk into the unit and savor your stay. We provide linens, bath towels, paper goods when available (restock if you can and bring some just in case), completely outfitted kitchen including many spices and nearly everything you need other than food and your favorite beverages. We have a hammock, beach chairs, beach toys, outside grille and hotel grade deck and lounge chairs. We can't promise sunshine but the weather is usually better than at home. Bring your own beach towels and toiletries and you will be ready for a calming vacation.

Our neighbors own and manage the only privately owned Event Venue on the NC coast "The Cottage at The Crystal Coast" which is 5 homes up from ours. They host live events, concerts and weddings so check them out at www.thecottage.com. You might see a concert listed on their "live events" calendar and decide to walk to the concert with your friends or book a wedding event for the future and have guests stay at our units.

Also, our new cleaning service is focused on providing the best possible service for each and every stay with enhanced cleaning procedures per 2023 guidelines.

We have a entirely supplied kitchen with various spices, zip lock bags, aluminum foil etc. are standard. Spare paper products (when available) are in the bottom drawer beside the refrigerator. Please replace what you use if you can for the next guests.

Let's face it, you come to the beach to enjoy the beach so you might as well be RIGHT ON THE OCEAN with a massive deck made for 'appreciating' all the beach ambiance you can. While we make the inside as comfortable as we can with TV's, nice beds and full kitchen, it's really about being outside at the beach.

That's why we tore down our old deck and replaced it with a 3 level deck. Each side has their own 3rd level upstairs deck off of each master bedroom with a privacy wall in the middle. It's ideal for working on your tan in private or enjoying the sunsets. The main living area has an additional huge deck with a bar top constructed around each side of the privacy wall. This gives you privacy when you want it but makes it simple to enjoy your family and friends outside whenever you want. We provide plenty of chairs and picnic tables so you can choose to eat outside or simply enjoy your favorite drink (or 2 or 3) while watching the waves crash on the beach or watching the fishermen on the pier. The additional wide walkway (ideal for strolling hand in hand with someone special) takes you down the steps to the lower deck that is ideal for some additional privacy or can be used as a smoking section away from the main unit.

The ground level has picnic tables and a gas grille for each side. When you come in off of the beach if you feel like an outdoor shower each side has their own covered and enclosed shower underneath the deck with HOT and cold water. Rinse off your surfboard (one of the prime surfing spots on the whole Island), your pets or rinse off the sand from the supplied body boards and beach chairs.

The garage is ideal for storing your bicycles or additional outdoor items like kayaks, paddle boards or parking a car. Dart board and corn hole give you something to do on those rainy days. Whithaven really is a special place. Please book your stay and become one of the Whithaven clan.

If Whithaven 2 is unavailable for your dates the other side of the property may be avalable or book both for your group. Whithaven 1 (666413) is the sister side of the duplex and also is on Vacation Rental By Owner/HomeAway. If you can't find it send me an e-mail and I will check the status as well. If you have any other questions please e-mail, text or call Lee.

*** Please note linen and bath towel service IS supplied in the base rate. Beds are King, Queen and Twins. ***

Parking for 2 or 3 cars is normal but if you have greater parking needs please contact the owner to discuss prior to booking.

Finding the best New Bern vacation home experience:

Find your best deal:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in coastal NC. To get the best value, try changing your vacation to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and even October offer warmer weather, fewer crowds, and reduced traffic. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the 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 friends and family at the beach.
  • The sooner you can reserve a home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental homes are booked very early. Reserving your rental home six - twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving are excellent times to plan and book your rental home.
  • Some hosts and property managers offer discounts for veterans. Check with your property manager to see if discounts are available for your family before you book.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners often offer guests an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which costs between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any 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 unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for more information.
  • Many management companies and vacation rental houses supply New Bern area visitor guides that include money-saving deals, either offered independently by local companies, or by way of a relationship between the property management company and the business itself. You can also find visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Planning, picking, and booking a perfectvacation home:

  • Begin by selecting vacation dates and a budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the configuration your group requires. DIRECT OCEANFRONT Duplex with large 3 level deck next to Oceanana Fishing Pier. has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is regularly accessible on booking websites. Otherwise, email or call the host before booking your rental. Remember that most listings specify maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull out couches in living rooms. You'll need to establish what configuration is optimal for your trip.
  • Does your group require unique amenities? Most websites include search filters for amenities. Amenity filters help you quickly remove less-optimal properties.
  • Appropriate accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. .
  • If your family is bringing pets, you'll need to find a pet-friendly vacation rental. Make sure to ask for details on breed, weight, and type requirements. Some hosts charge pet deposits and fees.

Considerations for your stay:

  • Review arrival and departure procedures before leaving home. Take a printed copy, and add a note with the directions to your smartphone.
  • Record any issues with the rental upon arrival, and immediately e-mail them to the owner. We especially recommend e-mails and text messages, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that can be useful if a dispute arises.
  • Property managers are great sources of help! Feel free to ask questions during your stay.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. You will enhance your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are a terrific resource to find the best local restaurants, beaches, and hangouts.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Neighbors can usually help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to enjoy a steak with a view, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Protect the rental owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are out, just like you would at home.
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before you drive away, take a walk through the rental property to make sure you've collected all belongings. Remember to check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Remove everything from 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.
  • Leave a review! Property managers rely on excellent feedback to compel more bookings. They'll be thankful for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationing families will appreciate that you share your feedback find their best vacation home. Please be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to fix it.
