About this Property

  • Sleeps 8
  • 4 Bedrooms
  • 4 Bathrooms
  • Cottage

1809 (Sun Thyme) is a striking ocean-front bungalow with 1800 Sq ft right on the beach! Spectacular open floor plan with two sizable bedrooms and two bathrooms on each side of the bungalow. There are two ocean-front KING bedroom suites....one on each side of the bungalow...with ensuite bathrooms. The other two bedrooms (one with a king bed and the other has two twin beds), each with their own hall bathroom, are located on the front of the home. The center area is where you will find the Living room, dinning room, and kitchen with Island. There is plenty of room for 8 folks to convene together while still giving plenty of private away space. There is a huge ocean-front deck and a lower sunbathing deck. The bungalow is just a few steps from the sand and then a few more to the water! The 1800 block of the beach is not busy so you will not have to fight for sand space to set up for a fun day at the beach. When you are done playing at the beach, rinse the sand and salt off at the outdoor shower station and savor the deck with unrestricted vistas of the ocean and the marine life that swims by. Dolphin sightings are very common during all seasons! Also this section of the beach generally homes a few sea turtle nests as an additional educational enjoyment...varies from season to season.

I always wanted an ocean front property....and am pleased now to own and offer it up for others to also appreciate. I Believe that property management is SO VERY important. And as such, I take great care to make sure that the guests have a incredible experience and as such, will return year after year! I have a magnificent group of folks to help me....my housekeeping staff is great and they make sure everything is clean and sanitized using all the CDC's recommendations and approved products. Also, if maintenance is required (my goal is that it not be), my maintenance folks are a call away responding immediately for something major and within 24 hours with the not so major things. I too am always with my phone and can be reached through voice, text, or e-mail and encourage my guests to call if they need anything or have questions. I assure you, it will not be a bother!

I also believe in working with my guests with a flexible cancelation policy....these days more than ever.

My home rules are simple:
1) Take care of the property as this is a private residence.
2) Keep all doors and windows shut when the AC is on
3) No enormous events
4) Must be >28 years of age to rent as the responsible event, no spring break events.
5) NO SMOKING inside or out on the premises
6) Please be mindful of the following: rinse sand off before coming inside (a handy station is supplied) and please, no wet bathing suits on furnishings.

Tips and Tricks for getting the best New Bern vacation rental experience:

Finding the best rental home value:

  • In the New Bern area, The earlier your group can book, the easier your search will be. The best rental properties are booked early. Booking your rental up to twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental home.
  • Summer is high season in the New Bern area. Reserve your vacation in Fall or Spring months to get the benefit of warm weather while saving money and avoiding crowded roads, restaurants, and activities.
  • Hosts and Property managers sometimes offer discounts for active duty military and veterans. Ask your host or property manager if discounts are available for your group.
  • Booking websites typically offer renters an option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which costs 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance can be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for details.
  • Look for your local New Bern area magazine upon arrival. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great information, visitor guide magazines have discounts for local attractions, tours, restaurants, and shops.

Narrow your Search:

  • Start by having your family choose the best dates and a budget.
  • Determine how many beds and the bed configuration your group requires. Ocean Front Cottage Renovated and ready for 2023! has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our rentals search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is normally accessible on booking websites. Otherwise, reach out to the property manager before you book the vacation home. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull out couches in living rooms. You will need to work out what is best for your trip.
  • If your family is bringing pets, you must reserve a pet-friendly property. Make sure to ask for specifics on breed, size, and type restrictions. Usually, hosts charge pet deposits and fees.
  • If there's an individual New Bern destination you crave, keep an eye out for homes that are either nearby, or those that cater to your requirements.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. .

During your stay:

  • Add the owner's information to your phone. Understand and take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
  • Property managers are there to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Lock your vacation home while you're out. Protect your property!
  • Record any issues with the rental at check in, and immediately contact the owner. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that are beneficial if a dispute arises.
  • Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You'll magnify your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are usually a terrific source for finding the best local beaches and restaurants.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can typically help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to find the best seashells, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before departing, take a walk through the rental property to make sure you've collected all personal belongings. Remember to check bathrooms, garages, and back yards for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Leave a review! Hosts rely on good reviews to drive more reservations. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something went wrong, other vacationing families will appreciate that you share your experience and help them have the best future vacation. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to solve it.
