About this Property

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

Our home is appealing 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 supplied 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 effortlessly accessible directly from the bathroom.

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

We've just added a colossal 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 appreciate 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 attractive yachting destination and America's Coolest Modest Town. The Cape Lookout National Seashore was newly voted most exemplary 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 .

Wallet-Friendly Tips

  • Many property management companies and vacation rental properties supply New Bern area printed travel magazines which include money-saving coupons, either offered independently by local companies, or via a relationship between the property management company and the store itself. These guides may provide a good start to your rental home search.
  • Desire to stay away from the packed areas and get a better price? Off-peak times offer up substantive bargains.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Several management companies offer rate reductions to veterans and active-duty forces. Make sure to check with property management company to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a special offer.
  • Some properties are primarily suited for specific types of guests. Event homes are ideal for weddings, wedding parties and corporate escapes. Some properties appeal to beach bums. Other rentals are positioned close to night life. If there's a particular New Bern activity that you love, be on the lookout for properties that cater especially to you.
  • Property management companies and individual home owners often offer customers an opportunity to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their rental costs for any nights missed as a consequence of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unexpected motel stay or additional gasoline.

How to Book a Vacation Home

You may be shocked to uncover how many vacation homes are available at your destination. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of vacation rentals available makes it possible to find an perfect retreat to suit their New Bern group, from relaxing condos to gigantic event homes with several bedrooms.

The vast majority of rental homes in New Bern are privately operated and many are represented by established local rental management companies. Property management companies are liked by property owners because they manage the online marketing and operations..

Here are some tips and methods to help you navigate the vacation rental search and booking process.

Where to find and book a great rental home:

Before you book "Waterfront Cottage on Taylor's Creek w/ Boat Dock - Near Shops and Restaurants ", examine our short checklist of factors to consider.

Start Your Search Early

New Bern rentals are reserved several months (and up to a year) in advance. Reserving your vacation property 6-12 months before your travel dates is usually recommended, whenever possible. Many groups plan to start their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve gatherings.

Select a Community and Date

Sometimes, the most challenging part of planning your trip is figuring out where to search, and when. When the big decisions are hammered out, everything else is more straightforward.

Choosing an Adequately-Sized Rental home

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Be aware that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room space. It is important to determine what is suitable for your group. Generally vacation home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

Exactly What Are You Willing to Shell out?

Make sure that "Waterfront Cottage on Taylor's Creek w/ Boat Dock - Near Shops and Restaurants " fits your price range *during your desired dates*. If many individuals or families are sharing the cost, always make sure that each group knows their obligation and has approved a maximum they are willing to pay. Usually, just one person in the group will be responsible for making the whole reservation and recovering each person's contribution.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is the group trying to find? Are you looking for a vacation property with outdoor lounge? Does the unit need to be beachfront, in town, or near wildlife? Are mattress sheets offered with the rental agreement, or do you need to provide your own? Gather a list of prioritized "necessities and wishes" from your company to help filter your search to the perfect property.

Accessability

Proper access can make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are required, factor that into your search. The majority of rental postings will include a list of amenities.

Paws-Friendly, Please

Remember to include your pets. While a number of vacation rentals allow animal friends, rules and fees fluctuate per rental. A number of restrictions might eliminate a prospective vacation property. You'll want to read agreements and contracts carefully. Additional charges may apply when pets are included. Ask questions *prior to* you reserve!

It Is Time to Search

As soon as the area, time and guests are decided, search multiple resources to find the best vacation rental selection. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "New Bern local rental homes" for local property management companies. In addition to having exclusive properties, local companies offer you fantastic service..

Negotiate

When you have located your dream rental, double check to make sure your travel dates are available.

While not true for all rental properties, many property owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Your best potential for a lower rate is shifting to an off-season week.

Read the Contract

Read through the complete contract and be sure you are aware who is liable for:

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the regular fee, guests must pay state taxes when booking "Waterfront Cottage on Taylor's Creek w/ Boat Dock - Near Shops and Restaurants ", as well as any other fees which might be mandatory depending on their circumstances, including a pet charge, earlier check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

Trip Insurance

Make sure you be aware of the cancellation policy before booking. Many rental home agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs between 1% - 5% of your base rental rate, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any days missed resulting from personal health emergencies or storms, and additionally hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas.

Complete the Booking

Once you believe you've identified "the one", begin the booking process. You'll probably need to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Where to Get Help

Put the rental manager's contact info into your cell phone and wallet for convenient access to answers during your stay.

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your visit!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. To ensure no damages are associated with your visit, create a record of any trouble spots of the rental. We also recommend promptly calling the rental home manager with a report of any damages, together with your request for any fixes. If there is a disagreement about legal responsibility later, having the documented problems and communication attempts will be helpful.
  • Ask questions. You could need instructions for a gas fireplace, Television set or spa tub. Contact your property manager. They are there to assist. A brief phone call eliminates many problems.
  • Don't forget to respect your nearby neighbors. Residents frequently live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Natives can often point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Don't forget to protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation rental secured when you are away, just like you would at home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Make sure you've packed all your things. Sweep each room in the house for left-behind possessions. Check bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, outdoor patios, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one last time and check for damage. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever feasible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your stay? Just about all rental management companies and rental websites make it easy for renters to provide comments. If your property and/or property manager was terrific, they'll appreciate your praise. If something went wrong and they failed to correct it in a acceptable manner, or when the property wasn't as described, you will want to note that in your critique.

Use Your Experience

Hold a meeting with your family. Did they love their rental? We hope this guide steered you to a great rental unit. Otherwise, you've acquired invaluable experience to help with another search.
