About this Property

We would like to welcome you to "The Simple Plateau" Cottage on Taylor's Creek in Beaufort.

Our home is comfortable and tidy and is supplied with everything you need, including TVs in the living room and each bedroom, high speed wireless internet and a modern kitchen with all new appliances. Fresh bed linens are included complimentary of charge as are bath towels and wash clothes.

Our bungalow has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The shower for the second bath, is an outdoor shower which is private and conveniently accessible directly from the bathroom.

There is also a additional room off the living room which has a inviting day bed. We call it the "Hemingway Room" as the decor is inspired by Hemingway's boat, Pilar.

We've just added a massive floating dock with room for 2 boats and there is also a floating kayak dock, fold down swim ladder, fish cleaning station and bench seating on the pier.

From the front porch and dock, you will adore a continuous parade of boats, wild horses and pirate shenanigans. With deep and calm water, Taylor's Creek is the ideal harbor.

You will only be 1/2 mile from downtown Beaufort, where you'll find plenty of eateries, bars and stores.

It's a fast drive to world class beaches, the ICW, the North Carolina aquarium, charter boat fishing and cruising and diving. There are fishing tournaments and festivals galore, including The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, The Beaufort Pirate Invasion, The Beaufort Historic Home and Garden Tour, The Beaufort Music Festival, Wooden Boat Show, Harker's Island Duck Decoys, and NC Seafood Festival. There are always fun activities in town including live music nearly nightly on the town boardwalk.

Beaufort was one of Blackbeard's favorite hangouts. Had you been our guest in 1717, you would have laid gaze on Blackbeard's mooring , as the home that he frequently visited while on holiday from pirating, is diagonally behind us. There is little doubt that he walked across our unit to reach his girlfriend's home. He ran aground off Beaufort's coast 300 years ago, and the Beaufort branch of the North Carolina Maritime Museum proudly displays artifacts salvaged from his ship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge.

Beaufort has been voted most charming yachting destination and America's Coolest Modest Town. The Cape Lookout National Seashore was freshly voted most first-rate National Park.

If you rent our home we ask that you respect the tranquility and privacy of your neighbors. While Beaufort has become a tourist destination, it is still a peaceful community, especially after dark.

We know you will savor your holiday at "The Smooth Plateau" in Beaufort .

How to get the best deal on your rental

  • Find the tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many official tourism bureaus will send you tourism guide books with special packages for rental properties, dining and activities. These guides may provide an excellent start to your rental search.
  • Flexible about when you can visit? Shoulder seasons provide incredible savings.
  • A number of property management companies and owners offer savings for active duty and veteran men and women of the Military, or returning individuals to the same rental home. Be sure to confirm with property manager to see if your vacationing group is eligible for a reduction.
  • Is there a particular activity you are mainly getting excited about during your stay? Be sure to prioritize your proximity to the activities and points of interest you are most looking forward to.
  • Vacation rental companies and individual home owners typically offer customers the chance to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the basic stay rate, provides travellers reimbursement of their rental expenses for any days missed resulting from medical related emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unplanned motel stay or extra fuel.

How to Book a Vacation Home

First-timers are oftentimes surprised at the number and wide selection of daily, weekly and monthly rental properties available in the New Bern area. With such a wide selection, clients are certain to come across a rental home that matches their wishes and spending budget.

Vacation homes are frequently owner operated or managed by rental management companies. For owners not directly engaged in the management of their vacation home, management companies are critical in helping families with reserving, checking-in, house cleaning services, as well as maintenance issues that may arise.

Here are some ideas and methods to help you navigate the vacation home search and reservation process.

How to find and reserve a great vacation home:

Do you think "Waterfront Cottage With Dock on Taylor's Creek - Short Walk to Downtown Beaufort" is the best vacation property for your next family vacation? Browse through this check list to confirm it fits all of your preferences.

The Earlier You Start, The Better The Selection

New Bern rental properties are reserved several months (and up to a year) in advance. To guarantee the most desirable selection of homes, we suggest searching and booking your New Bern getaway 6-12 months in advance, whenever you can. Holiday gatherings are a great time for families to plot their Summer holiday escapes..

Select a Village and Date

Start by figuring out which specific area of New Bern you prefer to browse, and the determine travel dates.

Pick a Size

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Remember that that a lot of properties list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living area. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for the group. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly accessible on the internet. If not, speak to the property manager before you book.

Make a Spending Limit

Make sure that "Waterfront Cottage With Dock on Taylor's Creek - Short Walk to Downtown Beaufort" works with your budget *during your desired week*. Make sure you get cost-sharing commitments from loved ones before booking a costly rental. One member of your family will need to be responsible for gathering contributions and acknowledging responsibility for the entire rental fee at time of reservation.

Let's Talk Amenities

What amenities is the group looking for? Is a screened deck a necessity? Are you more interested in a natural landscape or nightlife? Will the home have bicycles and beach toys for use during your stay? Make a list of priority conveniences to facilitate narrow your search.

Accessability

Do a few members of your crew have special needs? Make sure to remember and ask about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Make sure to include your furrry friends. Even though many vacation homes allow furry friends, guidelines and charges vary per rental. A number of restrictions may dismiss a potential rental. Read your agreement carefully! Charges may apply when pets are included. When in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Start your Search

. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "New Bern local vacation rentals" for local vacation rental management companies. Besides offering distinctive rental properties, local companies provide you with top-notch service..

Negotiate

When you have identified your dream rental, check to confirm your trip dates are available.

Some property owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Your greatest potential for a reduced rate is changing to a less desirable week.

Study the Agreement

  • Utilities
  • WIFI Access
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

Cancellation Policies

Cancellation policies are different with each rental. You will likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs between 1% - 5% of your standard vacation rental price, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any days missed as a consequence of personal health related emergencies or storms, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unanticipated motel stay or extra gas.

Complete the Reservation

When you believe you've identified "the one", begin the booking process. Do not forget that most rental agreements will require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to protect the rental owner.

Get Contact Info

Be sure to get the property manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We recommend keeping the contact's information in your smartphone and wallet.

Congrats! All that is left is making the most of your visit!

During your Stay

  • To make certain no damages are associated with your visit, make a record of any problem areas of the property. Contact the property manager immediately to report your observations. If there is a disagreement about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be incredibly helpful.
  • If there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the house, condo access, pool functions, etc... we suggest you ask the property manager promptly. A phone call can save several hours of difficulties.
  • Please be respectful of the local community. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking rules can make a stay much more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Local people may point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure to protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental secured when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • Double-check each room of the rental to make certain you've packed all personal belongings.
  • Once everything is out, perform a walk-through of the rental to make certain no property damage occurred in the course of your remain. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever you can (this may not be possible).. If the property owner is not available, make certain to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your stay? Nearly all rental property web sites request testimonials after your stay . Property owners and property managers will appreciate your positive critiques. If something went wrong, we advise being kind but completely honest with regards to experience. The best owners and managers will work hard to fix the situation.

Learn and Improve

Did they feel about the rental? If everything was fantastic, next year's trip planning will be quick. Maybe the rental was not perfect, and you'll better understand how to refine your search next time.
