-- 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 superb 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 calming 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 sizable 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 outfitted 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 glamourous parlor areas.

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

-- THE LOCATION --

You couldn’t ask for a better family hideaway than Beaufort - America's #1 modest town for holidays! Residents and visitors alike relish sailing, fishing, clamming, windsurfing, parasailing, surfing, swimming and sunbathing on the beaches.

Historic downtown Beaufort merchants invite you to linger in the stores and immerse yourself in the welcoming coastal vibe. 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.

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

Begin Your Search Early

Like many popular vacation spots, In New Bern the best rental homes are booked very early. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates is recommended, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your rental..

Find your Area and Confirm Dates

Begin by determining which specific area of New Bern you want to explore, and the approximate trip dates.

Choosing an Appropriately-Sized Rental home

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Remember that that many rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living area. You will need to figure out what is acceptable for the family. Generally rental home listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

What Are You Prepared to Shell out?

Will your preferred vacation property fit your budget during that prime Summer week? Make sure to get cost-sharing commitments from company prior to reserving a pricey rental home. A single individual in your company needs to be given the task of collecting contributions and accepting responsibility for the whole rental cost at time of booking.

Property Features

What amenities is the group trying to find? Is a screened porch a requirement? Are you more interested in wildlife or nightlife? Are extras like beach chairs, grills, beach umbrellas, buggies or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental charge? Make a list of priority features to help narrow your search.

Accessability

Elderly family members will thank you for not reserving a stairs-access-only condominium on the 3rd floor. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are necessary, factor that into your search. The majority of vacation home postings will include a list of amenities.

What About 4-Legged Family Members?

Make sure to include your furry family members. Although many vacation rentals allow family pets, rules and fees fluctuate per property. A number of restrictions could eliminate a prospective vacation property. Make sure to read agreements and contracts carefully. Extra fees or costs may be applied to your agreement.

  • Please remember to respect your nearby neighbors. Permanent residents often times 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. Local residences may point you in the right direction.
  • Ensure you protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental locked up when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Tidy up a little. Although you're spending money on a house cleaning fee, The property really should be in good condition. Kitchen sinks brimming with dishes, surplus sand on the floors and sticky messes should really be addressed before leaving.
  • As soon as everything is out, perform a walk-through of the rental home to confirm no property damage occurred in the course of your stay. If you can, do this walk-out assessment with the property manager present. If the property manager is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you feel about your choice? Many rental property sites ask for comments after your stay is complete. Rental owners and property managers will thank you for favorable ratings.
