General Rental property Advice

Newcomers are oftentimes shocked at the number and wide selection of short term rental properties available in the New Bern area. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of worldwide search sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

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

Below are some tips and suggestions to help you navigate the rental home search and reservation process.

How to find and book the best rental property:

Do you think "Quaint Fully Restored Historic Family Friendly Home in downtown Beaufort" is the perfect rental home for your next getaway? Read this guide to confirm it fits your needs.

The Sooner, The Better

New Bern rental properties start booking very early. To assure the best choice of vacation homes, we advise searching and booking your New Bern vacation home 6-Twelve months in advance, whenever feasible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation home..

Find your Spot and Decide Dates

Consensus can be tough between members of the family, but once this challenging part is complete everything will quickly drop in place.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Be mindful that many properties advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living area. It is important to determine what is acceptable for the family. Most rental home listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Stick to a Budget

Will your selected rental property suit your budget during that preferred Summer week? If many groups or relatives are sharing the cost, check that each person knows their responsibilities and has approved a maximum they are willing to contribute. Typically, just one member of the group will be liable for making the complete reservation and recovering each person's contribution.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What home features is the group interested in? Is a screened deck a requirement? Does the property need to be beachfront, the downtown area, or near night life? Will the home have bicycles and body boards available for use throughout your stay? Build a list of priority conveniences to facilitate narrow your search.

Accessibility and Special Considerations

Do members of your crew have specialized needs? If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are required, include that into your search. Almost all vacation home listings include a list of amenities.

What About 4-Legged Family Members?

Do not forget to include your companion! Animals are welcome at a number of vacation homes, but policies can vary. Type of animal, size and dog breeds could be limited. Read your agreement very carefully! Additional charges may apply when pets are included. Ask questions *before* you book!

The best places to Search

. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "New Bern local vacation rentals" for local vacation home management companies. Local companies frequently have a unique selection of rental properties daily and weekly.


Re-read the description to ensure the rental home has everything required. If lacking, the vacation rental management company may know of comparable properties that better suit your desires and budget..

While not true for all rental properties, many property owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Off-peak weeks will likely be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

Read the Agreement

Read the complete contract and be sure you understand who is liable for:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

What is the Cancellation Policy?

Cancellation policies vary for each property. Many rental contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance guards the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It offers peace of mind should tragedy strike.

Book your Rental

When everything seems right, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. You will probably have to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Keep Your Property Manager's Info

Put the property manager's contact information into your smartphone and wallet for easy access to answers during your visit.

Congratulations on booking your rental! You're on your way to a terrific vacation!

During your Stay

  • To make sure no damages are attributed to your stay, make a record of any problem areas of the rental. Call the rental manager immediately to report your observations. If there is a disagreement about responsibility later, having the documented problems and contact attempts will probably be useful.
  • If there is any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, property access, swimming pool functions, etc... we suggest you ask the property manager promptly. A phone call can save hours of problems.
  • Make sure to be a good neighbor. . 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. Residents are a great source of tips.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the home secured when you are away, just like you would at home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Check to make sure you've packed all your belongings. Sweep every room in the house for left-behind possessions. Check bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, porches, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make a point to walk through the rental one final time and check for damage. We suggest walking through with the rental manager whenever possible (this may not be possible).. If the property owner is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your vacation? Most rental websites seek feedback after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will appreciate your favorable reviews. If something was unsatisfactory and they did not correct it in a acceptable manner, or if the rental wasn't as described, you will want to note that as part of your comments.

Learn and Improve

Hold a debrief with your traveling companions. Did everybody have a good time? Maybe everything ended up being ideal and you are excited to reserve the rental for your next vacation. If not, you've acquired invaluable rental search experience to help with another search.
