About this Property

Rejuvenate yourself at the premier oceanfront bungalow in Atlantic Beach. Your stay at Sea Haven promises to add many phenomenal memories to your holiday scrapbook!

Sea Haven is a enormous, five bedroom, three-bath, oceanfront, beach home that is located in one of the peerless locations on the beach. The home lies in a peaceful, inviting neighborhood, yet still lies within walking distance of the Atlantic Beach Boardwalk and a fishing pier where a wide variety of activities and eateries available. The beach in front of the home is relatively peaceful, and you will often find yourself alone early in the morning.

At 3 stories, this home is one of the biggest beach homes in the area, and offers a great value. The rate/description is for the upper two floors. The first floor is not rented or occupied, but by May 2021, will be offered only to visitors renting the upper two floors if they want additional space. This first floor unit is entirely self-sufficient, with a separate entrance, two bedrooms, 2 baths, a full kitchen, and laundry. This unit can only be added to the main renting...we can not rent it alone...we offer it as an option to the main unit because we know that not everybody needs 7 bedrooms. The summer rate to add the first floor is $1500/week (off season $1000 to $1250). The main home (upper two floors) is entered through stairs on the street side, or via the outdoor space stairs on the sea side. The 2nd floor has a entryway, kitchen, dining area, living room, and 2 baths. The 3rd floor has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath. Ours prices are substantially better than most, especially on a per person basis, as the home is owned by two Marine Corps officers who merely wish to offset the costs of ownership. The home can sleep a lot of people...there are 6 Queens beds, 1 King bed, and 2 twin beds (see photos). With the number of beds, the price per person is among the premium you'll find for ANY sea front home, making Sea Haven one of the most first-rate values on the beach. The top floor bedrooms rooms are exceptionally sizable at about 36'x 14'. The east room is divided into two rooms; one for the parents overlooking the sea, and an adjoining room for the children. The children room is entered through the parents room...a elegant feature for those families who want to keep a close eye on toddlers. See bed layout in the "Rooms & Spaces" tab. The bed layout is as follows:

Bedroom 1: 2nd floor, next to living room, oceanfront - 1 king (2 occupants).
Bedroom 2: 2nd floor, next to hallway leading to the 3rd floor - 1 queen (2 occupants).
Bedroom 3 (Parent's Room): 3rd floor on the left (east side), oceanfront - 1 queen (2 occupants).
Bedroom 4 (Kid's Room): 3rd floor on the left (east side), enter through Bedroom 3 - 1 queen & 1 twin (3 occupants).
Bedroom 5: 3rd floor, on the right (west side), oceanfront - 3 queens & 1 twin (7 occupants).

The main floor bathroom lies off the entryway on the main floor. New LG washer and dryers are located here. The second and third bathrooms are located between the bedrooms for convenient access (Jack & Jill style, with the bathrooms entered through the bedrooms).

Both floors have independent thermostats and central heat/air units to optimize appreciation. New flat screen TV's are installed as well.

The outdoor space is exceptionally generous at over 500 square feet, and has an attached shower shed (water is surface ground temperature). There is also a covered 400 square foot porch with two sizable picnic tables, which are great for inclement weather or for just getting out of the sun. The view is unmatched...Sea Haven faces due south on an east-west beach, so during certain times of the year, you can relish both a sunrise and a sunset from the same location (this is one of the few beach locations in the US where this occurs). From the steps of the outdoor space, the waves at high tide are only about 15 yards away.

Our management company offers a wide variety of services, and will give you with the most striking holiday experience possible. Beach chairs and beach equipment are not kept at the home anymore (too many left on the beach) but are available for rent at businesses near the home. These companies can be reached at the links below. The second link may offer you a discount if you tell them we recommended them- they have more than infant equipment.

We hope you savor your stay! If you have any issues that are not resolved satisfactory by contacting the management, please e-mail me.

How to get the best deal on your rental

  • Many management companies and vacation rental properties supply New Bern area travel discount guides which include offers, either offered individually by vendors, or via a partnership between the property manager and the local itself. Search for these guides and discount books, because this allows visitors to discover the very same great attractions at a possibly substantial discounted.
  • Are your trip dates flexible? Off-peak times offer up significant bargains.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the U.S. Armed forces may be qualified for discounts. Be sure to confirm with property owner to see if your visiting gang qualifies for a special offer.
  • Some properties are primarily suited for particular types of guests. Event homes are great for weddings, wedding receptions and corporate escapes. Some homes appeal to beach bums. Other properties are situated close to night life. Make sure that you prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and locations you are most interested in.
  • Rental companies and individual property owners typically offer customers the chance to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs between 1% - 5% of the base term price, offers vacationers reimbursement of their vacation costs for any nights missed as a consequence of health related emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unexpected hotel room stay or additional fuel.

How to Book a Vacation Home

You might be surprised to uncover how many rental homes are available at your destination. Rental home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of essential research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Rental homes are frequently owner operated or managed by property management companies. Property management companies are liked by property owners because they coordinate the marketing and operations..

We've put together a brief guide to help you get the most out of your rental home experience.

Searching for and booking the right rental:

Before you decide to book "Oceanfront with 9 Beds! (1 King, 6 Queens, 2 Twins)", review our short checklist of factors to consider.

The Earlier, The Better

New Bern rentals book many months (and up to a year) in advance. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates is usually recommended, whenever possible. Many visitors choose to start their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year gatherings.

Select a Village and Date

Start by choosing which particular area of New Bern you'd like to browse, and the determine travel dates.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Confirm who is traveling, and just how many/what type of bedroom configuration you should have. Remember that most rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for the family. Generally rental listings will describe each of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

What Exactly Are You Prepared to Shell out?

Make certain "Oceanfront with 9 Beds! (1 King, 6 Queens, 2 Twins)" satisfies your budget *during your desired week*. If a few individuals or relatives are sharing the cost, make sure that everyone understands their obligation and has approved a maximum they are willing to chip in. One member of your family will need to be responsible for getting contributions and accepting responsibility for the entire rental fee at time of reservation.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is the family looking for? Do you primarily desire a home with a swimming pool, spa tub or volleyball court? Do you wish to be away from it all, or close to civilization? Are extras like beach chairs, gas grills, beach umbrellas, beach carts or coolers available and included with your rental charge? Build a list of priority features to help narrow your search.

Special Issues to consider

Do members of your party have specific needs? Be sure to remember and ask about wheel chair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Fido Approved

Make sure you include your furrry friends. Animal friends are welcome at many rentals, but policies differ. Many constraints may eliminate a prospective rental property. Read your agreement thoroughly! Charges may apply when pets are included.

It Is Time to Search

. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "New Bern local rental homes" for local rental management companies. Local agencies will often have a unique selection of vacation rentals daily and weekly.


When you've found your dream rental, check to confirm your vacation dates are available.

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Your greatest potential for a reduced rate is switching to an off-season week.

Study the Total Agreement

Read the full contract and make sure you understand who is liable for:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Telephone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

Make sure your quoted fee includes all state taxes and fees.

Cancellation Policies

Make sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy prior to reserving. You will likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs ranges from 1% - 5% of the standard vacation rental cost, provides travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any days missed a result of personal health care emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unforeseen hotel stay or extra gas.

Reserve It

When everything seems correct, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. You'll probably be required to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Keep Your Contact's Info

Don't forget to get the manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your vacation property. We suggest storing the contact's details in your phone and wallet.

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your visit!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Take notes of any damage soon after you arrive. Get in touch with the property manager right away to report your observations. If there is a dispute about liability later, having the documented problems and contact attempts should be helpful.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, Television set or spa. Get in touch with your rental manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save hours of difficulty.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. . Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Local residences may point you in the right direction.
  • Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation rental secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Check to make sure you've packed all your things. Sweep every room in the home for forgotten possessions. Inspect bathrooms, the garage, cabinets, outdoor patios, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one last time and check for damage. We advise walking through with the property manager wherever possible (this isn't always the case).. If the property owner is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a good time? Just about all rental home management companies and rental websites allow renters to provide comments. If your vacation rental and/or property manager was great, they'll appreciate your praise. If anything went wrong and they did not fix it in a practical manner, or if the rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point in your critique.

Use Your Experience

Hold a meeting with your travel companions. How did they like the rental home? We hope this guide steered you to a terrific home away from home. Maybe the rental home wasn't ideal, and you'll better know how to refine your search for the next time.
