About this Property

Rejuvenate yourself at the premier oceanfront bungalow in Atlantic Beach. Unwind on the warm outdoor space, listening to the joyful sounds of sea waves mere steps away. Skip down to the beach on your private pathway through the gently swaying sea oats. Watch as your children play in the sun-soaked sand on the shores of the dazzling Atlantic Sea. Savor a sunset, then getaway to your home filled with beach d├ęcor, and rest in your choice of five bedrooms. In the morning, walk down the peaceful beach to The Circle for some coffee, breakfast, shopping, or other activities. No matter what you chose to do, your stay at Sea Haven promises to add many excellent memories to your holiday scrapbook!

Sea Haven is a enormous, five bedroom, three-bath, oceanfront, beach home that is ideal for your sea get-away. This home is one of the biggest beach homes in Atlantic Beach, and is located in perhaps the most lavish location on the beach. The home is owned by two Marine Corps officers who merely want to offset the costs of ownership, so our costs are substantially better than most, especially on a per person basis. The top floor bedrooms rooms are exceptionally enormous 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 charming feature for those families who want to keep a close eye on toddlers. All beds are voluminous high-quality queens, except for one king in the master suite and two single twin beds (included for children or teenagers). The bed layout is as follows:

South Bedroom, 1st floor oceanfront - 1 king (2 occupants)
North Bedroom: 1st floor - 1 queen (2 occupants)
East Bedroom (Parent's): 2nd floor oceanfront - 1 queen (2 occupants)
East Bedroom (Childrens): 1 queen and 1 twin (4 occupants), accessed through parent's room.
West Bedroom: 2nd floor oceanfront - 3 queens and 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 happiness. New flat screen TV's are installed as well.

Sea Haven has terrific facilities for outdoor activities. The outdoor space is exceptionally sizable at over 500 square feet, and has an attached shower shed (ambient 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 appreciate 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.

The location in Atlantic Beach is also a plus due to the wide variety of activities and eateries available. Sea Haven lies in a peaceful, calming neighborhood, yet still lies within walking distance of the Atlantic Beach Boardwalk and a fishing pier. Several eateries are also within walking distance. THe beach in front of the home is relatively peaceful, and you will often find yourself alone early in the morning.

The official occupancy is listed at ten adults due to some newly enacted real unit regulations, but the home has 1 King, 6 Queens, and 2 twins (please reference the photos and below to see the bed layout). IF YOU ASK about the occupancy, you WILL be told 10 adults max.. We don't want to deny you a stay, but if you tell us you have more than 10 people, we can't rent to you. We trust that you will bring the appropriate number of people, so no one will be counting occupants. For your appreciation, when you arrive in Atlantic Beach, only the person on the contract needs to go check in with the management. The rest of your entourage can proceed to the home and wait for your family member to arrive with the key. With the number of beds, the price per person is among the most enchanting you'll find for ANY sea front home, making Sea Haven one of the choice values on the beach. Additionally, in order to ensure quality service 24 hours a day and to make your stay as nice and trouble complimentary as possible, we employ a professional management company which will cater to your every need. They offer a wide variety of services, and will give you with the most attractive holiday experience possible. 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

  • Search for the tourism bureau where you want to travel. Most established tourism bureaus will send printed tourism guide books with special deals for lodging, dining and tours. These guides can provide a good start to your rental search.
  • Willing to change your trip dates? Off-peak times offer substantive bargains.
  • Several management companies and owners offer price reductions for active and veteran men and women of the U.S. Military, or repeat individuals to the same rental home. Be sure to ask property manager to see if your visiting group qualifies for a rate reduction.
  • Some properties are primarily designed for specific groups of travellers. Event homes are ideal for weddings, wedding parties and corporate meetings. Some rentals cater to wildlife enthusiasts. Other properties are positioned close to night life. You'll get the best value from a rental that most thoroughly suits your ideal vacation setting, regardless if it costs a tad bit more.
  • Rental companies and individual home owners frequently offer customers the option to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually add between 1% - 5% of the base term rate, provides travellers reimbursement of their travel expenses for any days missed resulting from personal medical related emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unplanned hotel stay or extra gasoline. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs (heaven forbid!).

The Rental Process

Many people are shocked to learn the number of rentals can be found in their area of interest. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of worldwide research sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

Virtually all rental homes in New Bern are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local rental management agencies. Property management companies are well-liked by owners mainly because they manage the advertising and operations..

We have developed a brief guide to assist you in getting most out of your vacation rental experience.

Searching for and reserving the best rental home:

Before you decide to book "Oceanfront with 9 Beds! (1 King, 6 Queens, 2 Twins)", read through our short collection of issues to consider.

The Earlier, The Better

New Bern vacation rentals are reserved several months (and up to a year) in advance. Reserving your rental 6-12 months in advance is highly recommended, whenever possible. A lot of groups plan to start their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year gatherings.

Find your Area and Choose Dates

Quite often, the hardest part of scheduling your trip is deciding on where to search, and when. When the big decisions are resolved, everything else becomes easier.

Just How Many Bedrooms?

Establish who is going, and how many/what kind of bedroom arrangement you will need. Keep in mind that many homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the family room. You will need to determine what is acceptable for the company. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available online. Otherwise, speak to the property owner before you book.

What Exactly Are You Prepared to Pay?

Will your chosen rental home suit your budget during that choice Summer week? Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends well before booking a costly vacation property. Usually, one member of the group will be liable for making the complete reservation and recovering each party's contribution.

Rental Home Features

What property features is the group interested in? Do you want a rental home with outdoor kitchen? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or near civilization? Are items like beach chairs, barbecue grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers at your disposal and included with your rental property charge? Make a list of priority features to help filter your search.

Special Circumstances

Do individual members of your party have special needs? Be sure to remember and ask about wheelchair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Fido Approved

Are you or other people in the family traveling with a domestic pet? Pet guidelines are different at each rental property. Study descriptions carefully. Type of animal, size and dog breeds may be limited. Read your contract very carefully! Service fees may apply when pets are included.

It Is Time to Search

Several websites exist to match visitors with property owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "New Bern local rental homes" for local rental home management companies. Local vacation home management companies pride themselves on an exceptional rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

When you've spotted the rentalhome of your dreams, check to confirm your travel dates are available.

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season stay, try asking for an additional night. Your best prospects for a reduced rate will be shifting to an off-season week.

Go Through The Contract

You should know which services are included:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Space

Ensure that your quote includes all taxes and fees.

Cancellation Policies

Make sure you understand the cancellation policy before reserving. Vacation rental management companies and rental owners typically offer their guests the choice to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance guards the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It offers peace of mind should tragedy strike.

Reserve It

After you think you've identified "the one", start the reservation process. Bear in mind that most rental contracts will require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to cover the rental home owner.

Get Contact Information

Make sure you get the property manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We suggest saving the contact's information in your phone and wallet.

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph on your arrival. To ensure that no damages are associated with your visit, make a record of any trouble spots of the rental. We also advise immediately phoning the rental home manager with a report of any wear and tear, along with your request for any necessary fixes.
  • Ask questions. If you have any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the house, property access, pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental manager promptly. A brief phone call prevents many hassles.
  • Please be considerate of the community. Natives are likely to be as friendly to you as you are considerate of them. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Natives can frequently point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great date night, or the best areas for night life?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the home locked up when you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Make sure you've packed all your possessions. Sweep each room in the house for forgotten items. Check bathrooms, the garage, cabinets, backyards, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • As soon as everything is out, do a walk-through of the property to confirm no property damage occurred during your remain. If possible, do this walk-out review with the property manager present. If the property manager is not available, be sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your rental? Nearly all rental sites seek comments after your stay . Owners and rental managers will appreciate your favorable reviews. If anything went wrong, we advise being pleasant but sincere about your experience. Top property owners and managers will try very hard to fix the situation.

Learn from your Experience

Hold a vacation recap meeting with your traveling companions. Did everybody have a blast? If everything was perfect, next year's vacation planning will be relatively easy. If not, you have acquired invaluable experience to help with your next search.
