Makin' Waves is a elegant home that has a classic, opulent feel throughout the entire 3 floors of cavernous gathering spaces and comfortably appointed bedrooms. The exterior also has much to offer, with multi-level covered and uncovered decks on the front and back side all adorned with furnishings for calming and sunbathing. Make watching the sound-side sunset a ritual from the porch swing in the front, and savor vistas of the ocean, as well as the family making memories in the private pool, from the back.
Coming in from the pool deck, there is a ground-level living room, offering a roomy, recreational area to take a break from the sun. There is a huge sectional couch that offers a queen sleeper, entertainment center, ping pong table, card table, and a kitchenette, complete with an ice maker and wine refrigerator. In addition to the outdoor shower on the pool deck, there is a full-sized bath on this level, with an entrance from both the pool deck and just off the kitchenette. This floor includes a laundry room and is where the elevator begins its service.
The second floor can also be known as the bedroom floor. Here you will find a spacious King Suite that has a soaking tub, glass surround shower, and double sinks. There are also 2 bedrooms both with a Queen Bed and private baths. The additional bedroom on this floor is one for the kiddos to appreciate. This bedroom has a twin/twin bunk as well as a full/full bunk bed and uses the bathroom just across the hallway.
As you enter the third floor, be prepared to feel at home. This enormous open floor plan is where you will find the kitchen, dining area, and living room, as well as a home office. For those working remotely, this room is equipped with a sizable sitting desk and a wireless printer. The Master Bedroom fit for a King is on this level as well. The bedroom is furnished with a King Bed, TV filled armoire, and a unique bespoke bathroom complete with soaking tub, standing shower, and separate vanities.
Let leaving something at home be the least of your worries-the kitchen is complete with everything you will need including a Keurig, Standard Coffee Maker, and deluxe air fryer. For those of you with little ones, you'll find a highchair and pack-n-play is available for your convenience. The entertainment centers are also complete with Roku systems for family movie nights!
Your four-legged adored one is also invited to join in on your vacation! This home can be pet friendly with a $150 pet fee/per dog (max. of 2) and if they are under 25 pounds.
All of the beds are made prior to arrival with newly laundered linens, including the comforters, and are supplied with a full week’s stay.
The location of this home is within the handsome, private and gated community of Dolphin’s Ridge. The beach access is located at the split of Dolphin Ridge Road and Sandy Court which is where you will be able to leave your cart for a day at the beach. The walk to the beach is roughly a 5 min. walk as you are just around the corner from the access although the golf cart makes it a breeze.

Rental property booking tips:

Get the most from your vacation rental budget:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in Emerald Isle. Booking your vacation home in the Fall or Spring shoulder seasons is our favorite way to save money on your vacation rental. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of acceptable homes. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to reserve an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during June, July, and August. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a New Bern vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with family and friends at the beach.
  • Book your vacation home as early as possible. Rental schedules usually open twelve months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer vacation rentals during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Veterans and Active Duty Military members may be qualified for special discounts. Be sure to ask your prospective property manager or host if your group qualifies for a reduced rate.
  • Property managers frequently offer renters an option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs between 1% - 5% of the base reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed trip time as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for program terms and fees.
  • Many rental management companies supply New Bern area visitor guides which include special offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or through a partnership between the rental management company and the business itself. You can also find New Bern visitors guide and coupon books at local shops and grocery stores.

Use filters to search efficiently:

  • Select a group lead, select your trip dates, and select a max budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the bed configuration your family requires. Oceanview with elevator, private pool, golf cart, in Dolphin Ridge community has 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms.
  • Specific descriptions of bedrooms and bed types is usually available on booking pages. If you don't see them listed, contact the property owner before booking the home. Note that most listings specify the max. guest capacity, which often includes pull out couches in living rooms.
  • If there's an individual New Bern beach you simply love, look for properties that are either nearby, or those that cater especially to your desires.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or break a vacation for persons with disabilities. Confirm all necessary amenities are available and included before reserving a rental
  • If your family is vacationing with pets, filter your search for a pet-friendly rental. Request specifics on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Be aware that some property owners charge additional pet fees.

Tips to have a great stay:

  • Get the owner's phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. Put the manager's contact information in your smartphone.
  • During arrival, document any damages to the property and immediately alert the property manager. Keep records of all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, elevator or washer/dryer. Contact your property manager. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent a lot of problems.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like unpleasant visitors bothering your peace and quiet. Use the golden rule for best judgement. If they like you, locals might even recommend great local food and attractions you would have never otherwise known!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Residents can often help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to book the best tours, have a great night out, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Protect the owner (and your things!) by locking the rental when you are out, just like you would at home.
  • Re-check every room of the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all of your belongings on check-out day. Re-check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean out 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.
  • After your trip, leave feedback! Property managers rely on excellent reviews to drive new bookings. They'll be thankful 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 manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to solve it.
