About this Property

Surround yourself with old-world glamour & waterfront activities while staying at 'Mariner's Retreat,' a colonial-style holiday rental home in Beaufort. Located 1 lot off the water and ½ mile from downtown, this 4-bed, 4-bath home offers premier appreciation & privacy. Beaufort was newly named the #1 modest town for travel by Real Simple Magazine, so you know there's plenty to do!

-- THE UNIT --

Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: Queen Bed | Bedroom 4: Queen Bed

Set sail for 'Mariner's Retreat,' a handsome Beaufort 1940's home three doors down from The Hammock House, constructed circa 1709, which served as Blackbeard the Pirate's local residence and refuge.

Surrounded by foliage and a privacy fence on a peaceful cul-de-sac, it's no question why 'Mariner's Retreat' is one of the most convenient and desired locations in town. Stop to admire the high gabled Cape Cod style salt-box roofline before stepping inside to relax.

The Hammock Lane main entrance opens into a generous great room including a 60-inch flat-screen cable TV and dining for 8. Others can relax in the well-appointed sunroom with a new rent selected from the supplied library or in the 2nd den with a flat-screen cable TV and DVD player.

Beyond the main dining area, you'll find the entirely supplied kitchen where home-cooked meals are waiting to be prepared and then served at the 8-person kitchen table.

When it's time to settle in, there are 4 big bedrooms to choose from for a sound nighttime's sleep. The 2 upstairs bedrooms boast separate entrances to the upper porch and include en-suite bathrooms. You can also stay downstairs in one of the remaining 2 queen bedrooms supplied with appealing parlor areas.

One of the downstairs bedrooms includes an en-suite bathroom with a soaker tub/shower combo, while the other is promptly adjacent to a tiled walk-in shower with safety handholds.

-- THE LOCATION --

You couldn’t ask for a better hideaway than Beaufort - America's #1 modest town for vacations! Residents and visitors alike savor sailing, fishing, clamming, windsurfing, parasailing, surfing, swimming and sunbathing on the beaches. Strolling along Front Street, you might even see wild ponies on Carrot Island, bottlenose dolphins playing in Taylor's Creek, or great blue herons feeding in the shallows.

Historic downtown Beaufort merchants invite you to linger in the stores and immerse yourself in the welcoming coastal ambience. Learn more about this waterfront town with a trip to Beaufort's NC Maritime Museum displaying artifacts from Blackbeard's ship and Queen Anne's Revenge.

Explore outdoor of the town when you rent a beach excursion to the sea side of Shackleford Banks, accessible only by boat. Opt for another laid-back eco-sightseeing boat tour of the Rachel Carson Nature Preserve or marvel at mega-yachts berthed at Beaufort Docks.

For more oceanside fun, choose to charter a sailing catamaran with a guided tour or appreciate a cruise on the ferry to Cape Lookout to gaze at a quintessential lighthouse scene.

Wallet-Friendly Tips

  • Many property owners and vacation rental properties supply New Bern area traveller discount magazines which include money-saving promotions, either offered independently by vendors, or by way of a relationship between the property management company and the local vendor itself. These guides can provide a good start to your rental home search.
  • Flexible about when you might visit? Shoulder seasons feature incredible savings.
  • Are you a military veteran? Several property management companies offer discounts to veterans and active-duty forces. Be sure to check with property management company to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a price reduction.
  • Some rental homes are basically designed to serve particular vacationers, whether it's downtown units with weekly pier passes, city-center homes with nearby access to night life or waterfront homes that have their own kiteboarding launching areas. Make sure to prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and sight-seeing opportunities you are most excited about.
  • Think about getting trip insurance with your lease agreement. Trip insurance, which generally costs between 1% - 5% of the basic stay rate, offers visitors reimbursement of their trip costs for any nights missed a result of personal health-related emergencies or weather, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unexpected hotel room stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

The Rental Process

You might be shocked to find out how many vacation rentals are available at your destination. With such a wide selection, renters are certain to come across a rental which fits their expectations and spending plan.

Vacation rentals are often owner operated or managed by property management companies. Owners often select management companies to assist with advertising campaigns, cleaning and routine maintenance.

Below are some tips and tricks to help you navigate the vacation home search and reservation process.

How to find and book the right rental property:

Before you decide to book "'Mariner's Retreat' - Walk to Downtown Beaufort!", read through our short list of points to consider.

The Earlier, The Better

Like many desirable vacation spots, In New Bern the best rental homes are booked early. Booking your rental 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, when possible. A lot of households decide to start their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve holiday gatherings.

Find your Area and Establish Dates

Agreement can be tough among members of the family, but once this difficult part is complete everything will quickly drop in place.

Pick a Size

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Remember that that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for the family. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available on the internet. Otherwise, get in touch with the property manager before you reserve the home.

Establish Your Budget

The majority of rental homes are marketed with a cost range. Determine the rate for your selected week. It might be at the high end of the range. If several groups or family members are sharing the cost, make sure each group knows their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to contribute. A single individual in your company needs to be responsible for collecting contributions and accepting responsibility for the complete rental cost at time of reservation.

Rental Home Features

What property features is the group trying to find? Are you looking for a rental home with patio kitchen? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or close to civilization? Are bed linens included with the rental agreement, or will you need to bring your own? Make a list of "needs and desires" from your party to help filter your search to the most appropriate rental.

Special Issues

Do some members of your crew have special needs? Make sure to remember and ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Make sure to include your furrry friends. Pets are welcome at a number of rental homes, but policies differ. Examine your contract very carefully! Extra charges may apply when animals are added.

The best places to Search

After the place, dates and guests are decided, search multiple resources to get the best vacation home selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "New Bern local rental homes" for local rental home management companies. Local rental management companies take pride in a top-quality rental experience.

Negotiate

When you have spotted your dream rental, make sure your trip dates are available.

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

Go Through The Agreement

Discover which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Utility bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Phone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

Ensure that your price includes all state taxes and fees.

Cancellations Happen

Ensure that you understand the cancellation policy prior to booking. Rental home management companies and property owners typically offer their clients the option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs ranges from 1% - 5% of the base rental home price, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent vacation property costs) for any nights missed a result of personal hospital emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unforeseen hotel stay or additional gas.

Reserve your Rental Home

Once you feel you've found "the one", start the booking process. Remember that most rental contracts will require a considerable rental deposit and/or security deposit to safeguard the property owner.

Where to Get Assistance

Put the rental manager's contact information into your smartphone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your stay.

Good luck on booking your vacation home! You're on the right path to a fabulous vacation!

During your Stay

  • To make sure no damages are associated with your visit, make a record of any trouble spots of the property. Call the rental manager immediately to report your findings. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts should be useful.
  • Ask questions. If you have any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the property, house access, pool operation, etc... we suggest you ask the property manager immediately. A quick phone call prevents many head aches.
  • Remember to respect your nearby neighbors. Many times, surrounding households are occupied by permanent locals. 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 may point you in the right direction.
  • Make sure to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the vacation home secured while you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Double-check each space of the vacation property to be sure you've packed all belongings.
  • When your things are all out, begin a walk-through of the rental home to make sure no damage occurred in the course of your stay. If at all possible, do this walk-out inspection with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have an enjoyable time? Just about all property management companies and vacation rental websites allow travellers to provide feedback. If your vacation rental and/or property manager was great, they will likely appreciate your recommendations. If anything went wrong, we suggest being pleasant but sincere with regards to your rental experience. Top property owners and managers will work hard to rectify the problem.
