Direct beachfront duplex with giant deck overlooking the dunes and Oceanna Fishing Pier. When you vacation at the beach you want to be AT the beach not near the beach. Keys are supplied via a lock box, so check-in has no in person contact.

Our family has owned this unit for over 25 years, and we do annual updates for our guests' comfort. The 2020 and early 2021 period gave us an opportunity to do a total remodel with replacing most of the drywall, new floor, and fans. We have new modern appliances, deck furnishings just as a hotel would, hammocks below the deck and my favorite feature, outside enclosed showers with HOT & cold water for your outdoor showering enjoyment.

New wall colors, more parking and new covered entryway are just a few of the upgrades. We provide pretty much everything you need to walk in and relax. We provide a completely outfitted kitchen with spices, paper goods (when in short supply bring toilet paper and paper towels but we do start you off) , zip lock bags, aluminum foil ( bottom drawer beside refrigerator has paper towels and toilet paper) and just ask that you restock if you have time so the next guest has everything they need.

Each unit is a mirror image of the other except for color schemes and floor. Both units are refreshed annually, and for 2022, we added a UVC germicidal light in our ductwork to kill viruses and mold to help make our heating and air system cleaner and better for those with allergies.

The Vacation Rental By Owner listing for the sister listing is 666411, so you can read the reviews there if you like. We also have a cleaning crew who lives locally to keep the unit in great shape throughout the season and follows current 2023 cleaning recommendations. Each side has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths plus the outdoor shower provides outdoor comfort when you come back from the beach. The humongous outdoor deck accepts everybody to spend time outside and eat on the deck, too, if you like. It's a great experience preparing your food with the supplied outdoor grille, just replaced in 2022. Recent upgrades include a few new ceiling fans, new 4 burner stainless steel grille, new couch, new stove and new twin XL beds in the 3rd bedroom. If you appreciate sunsets and sunrises, please look at our photos. You'll notice very few sunrise photos (by choice) but tons of sunset photos. This is a rare east/west facing beach, so you get magnificant sunrises and magnificant sunsets. We provide beach chairs and some toys for the kids too but remember to bring your beach towels.

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.

Having the pier just a few hundred yards away is an amenities you are sure to savor. Even if you don't fish, you can walk on the pier and see if anyone else is having luck and appreciating a drink from their bar or, better yet, make one and take it with you. If you like to surf, either side of the pier creates fantastic breakers and has always been known as one of the best surf spots on the island. If you would rather fish and don't like the pier, surf fishing right in front of our home can provide lunch or dinner!

You'll quickly notice our beach is very sizable, wide, clean and relatively uncrowded. Our end of the beach is primarily single family homes for low density uncrowded beaches. If you want to walk the beach you can head towards the circle (town center for Atlantic Beach) and visit the world famed TackleBox (locals dive bar), have a beverage outside at Idle Hour or eat at one of multiple eateries. Just a few blocks from our unit (painless walk) can have you at Amos Mosquito's, arguably one of the best eateries around and the Island Grille, which is just up the street. It may be modest but the food is fantastic. You can always drive over to the Morehead City waterfront and choose between a dozen different eateries or head over to Beaufort and shop and dine on the waterfront.

Whithaven is a special place, I hope you get the opportunity to join us and see for yourself.

Booking the best Atlantic Beach vacation property experience:

Finding the best rental value:

  • Summer is high season in the New Bern area. To find the best vacation home for your budget, we recommend booking in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons. You'll benefit from lower rental rates, greater selection, beautiful weather and the absence of large crowds at local restaurants, tours, and activities. Many vacationers use this method to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during June, July, and August.
  • The earlier you can reserve a home, the easier your search will be. The most desirable rental homes are reserved early. Reserving your vacation home 6-12 months before your vacation is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental property.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager if your vacationing group qualifies for a special rate.
  • Booking websites frequently offer renters an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed days as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for details.
  • Many management companies and vacation rental houses supply New Bern area travel guides which often include coupons, either offered independently by local businesses, or by way of a relationship with the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find New Bern visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers.

Use filters to narrow your rental search:

  • Start by selecting a vacation week and a budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the configuration your group requires. DIRECT OCEANFRONT Duplex with large 3 level deck next to Oceanana Fishing Pier. has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our New Bern vacation rental search.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts is commonly available on booking websites. Otherwise, email or call the property manager before booking the property. Note that most property listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in living rooms. You'll need to work out which bed configuration is suitable 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.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before booking
  • Some rentals allow pets, but others don't. Acceptable types of dog or cat, weight and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the host about pets before booking.

Tips for a wonderful stay:

  • Add the property manager's information to your smartphone. Print and take a copy of check in/check out procedures.
  • Make a record of any damages to the rental upon arrival, and immediately contact the host. We especially recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that are beneficial if there is a dispute.
  • Hosts are available to help! Feel free to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like troublesome visitors bothering your life at home. Employ the golden rule for common sense. If they like you, locals might even recommend great local food and places you would've not otherwise known about!
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Local residents can typically point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to book the best tours, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Ensure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by locking the property when you are gone, just like you would at home.
  • Just prior to departing, complete a walk-through to confirm you haven't forget any personal items. Re-check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Go through the property a final time and look for damage. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever you can. If the manager is not available, take video and pictures of the rental to record its condition.
  • Leave a review! Property managers rely on great reviews to inspire future bookings. They'll be grateful for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationing families will will be grateful for your feedback find their best rental home. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to remedy it.
