Welcome to Bobby’s Beach Barn, a private home located in a peaceful family neighborhood.

This bungalow has been freshly refreshed in 2022 with new floor, bathroom faucets, light fixtures, furnishings and more. It also has 3 comfortable beds (1 King / 2 Queen), 3 Samsung intelligent TVs, a Bluetooth stereo receiver, 5G WIFI and full-size washer/dryer. Plus there’s a humongous deck, outdoor shower and a beach cart you're welcome to use.

Sip your morning coffee calming in an Adirondack chair on the shady deck. Catch a nap in one of our hammocks. And bring your bicycles because the bicycle path (1/2 block away) takes you to wooded trails, close by eateries, mini-golf, a wine shop and much more. Take a family walk to the beach with your eyes peeled for whitetail deer that roam around the neighborhood at dusk.

Our beach bungalow has been in the family since 1982. Your host has spent many childhood summers and countless vacations as a grownup in Emerald Isle. He will be happy to share his local tips with you. In fact, here’s a start: Slow down, disconnect, and don’t forget to reapply. :)

Tips and Tricks to get the best Emerald Isle vacation home experience:

Finding your perfect rental:

  • In the New Bern area, The sooner you can reserve a vacation home, the better your selection will be. The most desirable properties are reserved very early. Booking your rental up to twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to search for and book your rental property.
  • To book the most suitable rental home for your budget, we strongly suggest reserving in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons. You'll enjoy lower rates, better selection, gorgeous weather and the absence of giant crowds at restaurants, beaches, and activities. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a New Bern vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with friends and family at your favorite beach.
  • Some owners offer rate reductions for veterans. Remember to ask your host or property manager if special offers are available for your group.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners usually offer their guests an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which will generally cost 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed time as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for more information.
  • Look for your local New Bern area magazine when you check-in. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, visitors guide magazines contain coupons for nearby attractions, tours, restaurants, and shops.

Choosing and booking the perfectrental home:

  • First, have your family commit to vacation dates and a budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration you need. Family beach cottage poised between the ocean, hiking, biking, eateries & shops has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rental home search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is often available on booking websites. If you don't see them listed, email or call the property management company before booking the rental. Note that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which often includes pull out couches in living rooms. You'll need to work out what is optimal for your trip.
  • Some properties allow pets, and some do not. Acceptable types of family pet, size and breeds may be restricted, and added costs may apply. Ask the owner about pets before booking.
  • If there's a specific New Bern beach you crave, look for homes that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your requirements.
  • Appropriate accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Confirm all necessary amenities are available and included before reserving a rental

Know before you go:

  • Add the host's contact information to your phone. Take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a garage door opener, A/V setup or WIFI setup. Contact your owner. They are there to help! A brief phone call prevents lots of problems.
  • Lock your rental while you're out and about. Keep your property safe!
  • At Check-in, make note of any damages to the rental property and immediately contact the owner. Record all coorespondence.
  • Respect your neighbors. Often times, nearby homes are occupied by local residents. Respecting quiet hours and parking rules is the right thing to do.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Residents can frequently point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order delicious takeout, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Re-check the property to make sure that you've packed everything at departure. Check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Walk through the rental one final time and keep an eye out for damages to contents or the property itself. We advise walking through with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager is not available, remember to take video and pictures of the rental to record its condition at check-out.
  • Did your family have a wonderful vacation? Many rental home management companies make it easy for travelers to provide reviews. If your rental and/or property manager was great, they will likely appreciate your kind words. If anything was out of order and they failed to fix it reasonably, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your review.
