Welcome to "Finest Life". See our 100+ five star reviews on Vacation Rental By Owner over 10 years. Most of our bookings are return guests - that tells you everything you need to know. This is a very clean, well maintained and entirely furnished OCEAN FRONT home - not a condo - in impressive Emerald Isle, NC. It has a full-on ocean view from the deck, 2 bedrooms and living room, not partial vistas and not over the street or rooftops. It is half of a duplex. The other side of the duplex is not a rental; it is someone's rarely used second home, so you will not have any crazy or noisy neighbors, events or big groups next door. The kitchen was completely refreshed in early 2023; see new photos! You''re likely to see dolphins frolicking in the ocean. Unlike staying in a condo complex, you'll have privacy and no worries about noise, sharing the deck or annoying neighbors. No dogs. Ideal for families with kids. The home is close to a lifeguard station on the beach. The lifeguards are on duty every day from April until September.
There is a gentle set of stairs from deck to beach, not the 50 or 60 steps to get to the homes that sit high up on the dunes. The home has everything you'll need and the kitchen is completely equipped (even spare appliances such as blender, coffee maker & toaster). There is a Kuerig coffee machine with pot and pod capability. We provide starter supplies upon your arrival (soap, paper towels, t.p.). ALL of the linens in the home is premium gel memory foam 12" beds and new frames that are less than 3 years old. (Oh, so comfortable!) All beds have thick zippered bed-sacks too. Living room couch and appreciate-seat were new in 2022. New king bed 2022 as well.
This home is an superb value and has everything you'll need for a restful anxiety-complimentary vacation at the beach. The manager is local and the owner is always available. An all-new bigger deck is just a few years old. Note the constructed-in benches on the deck near the ocean. Both bathrooms were modernized in early 2023 as well. Tub and shower are pretty tile - not cheap fibreglass! All the doors were freshly replaced. The street side windows were all replaced in 2022. As you can see from all of our photos, we strive to make this a cozy and attractively 'beachy' home. Among the features of this property are Spectrum cable, STRONG wireless internet (to the deck +), new central air unit (2021), ceiling fans in every room, 4 flat-screen HD-TV's (55" in living room and 40" in 3 bedrooms), and bespoke hand-painted tropical murals in each bedroom. It's NOT cheap thin, uncomfortable rattan / boxy / IKEA furnishings, nor is it used furnishings from Grandma's home. We want you to relax and be comfortable! Telephone owner AL directly at nine seven three four seven six eight one nine one with any questions.

There are 2 ocean-front master bedrooms (1 K & 1 Q) and 2 bedrooms street side (partial Sound view) with doubles and singles. There are 2 full tiled baths (1 tub/shower main floor and 1 shower only on the upper floor) and a phenomenal outdoor enclosed over-sized locking private shower with hot and cold water and a dressing area. (The outside shower is particularly great for kids or a fast invigorating rinse after coming off the beach.) The deck has a convenient hose for sandy feet.

Recent (within the past few years) upgrades include complete new kitchen (early 2023), new beds, new laminate floor throughout the main level, bigger deck, remodeled bathrooms, new living room furnishings, new TV's, newer roof, all new interior doors, windows, digital entrance lock, and many smaller changes as well. The a/c unit was replaced in 2021. The driveway and landscaping were upgraded in 2021. The electrical panel and service for the home was replaced in 2021. We are constantly upgrading! There are hurricane shutters on all the windows, including splendid coral color Bahama type shutters on the street side windows.

There are lifeguards on the beach within sight just a short walk away (April - Sept.). This home is ON THE BEACH with the same ocean, vistas, and ease of access as the mansions that cost 3 or 4 times as much. Wouldn't it be nice not to have to drag all your stuff to the beach from a block or more away? There is a giant difference between OCEAN-FRONT and 1 or 2 or 3 homes in from the beach. No carts or wagons needed here! No going down the block to a public access entrance. Need a drink or suntan lotion while you're at the beach? Just walk up onto the deck and get it! Maybe leave additional beverages or your kids's toys on the deck walkway for instant access. We provide beach chairs, beach umbrella, toys, as well as beach games. We appreciate your inquiry for any questions and thank you for your time and for considering "Best Life"! E-mail or call if you have any questions or need any additional information. Best wishes for a great Emerald Isle vacation!

Tips and Tricks to get the best vacation home experience:

Sticking to a budget:

  • Book your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summertime ends). Many families reserve their Summer vacations during Christmas and Thanksgiving gatherings. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summertime is the most expensive season in coastal NC. Booking your New Bern vacation home in the Spring or Fall is an excellent way to save money on your vacation home. Rates are lower, and you'll find a better selection of suitable properties. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a New Bern vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday vacation near the ocean? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
  • Some property management companies offer special rates for veterans. Check with your property manager to see if special discounts are available for your group.
  • Booking websites typically offer renters an option to purchase vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for days missed as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional evacuation charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for more information.
  • Look for your local New Bern area magazine upon arrival. If your rental property doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, visitor guide magazines contain coupons for local shops and restaurants.

Use filters to search efficiently:

  • Select a group lead, select your dates, and select a budget.
  • Determine how many bedrooms and the configuration you need. Ocean-front 4-bed house @ condo cost. Step off deck to beach. Brand new kitchen! has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is usually available on booking pages. Otherwise, email or call the property owner before you reserve the rental. Remember that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds. You will need to work out what is best for your group.
  • If your family is bringing pets, you'll need to find a pet-friendly vacation rental. Get specifics on breed, weight, and type requirements. Usually, property managers require additional pet deposits and fees.
  • Are you looking for unique amenities? Most rental websites include search filters for amenities.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for those with limited mobility. Confirm all required amenities are available and included before reserving a rental.

Considerations for your stay:

  • Take a copy of the property manager's phone number and entry/exit procedures for your .
  • Hosts are available to help! Feel free to ask questions before, during, or after your stay.
  • Protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental while you are away, just like you would back home.
  • Document any issues with the property at check in, and immediately contact the property manager. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that are valuable if damages are attributed to your stay.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking policies can make a stay more pleasurable. You'll enhance your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are often an excellent resource to find the best local beaches and hangouts.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Neighbors can usually help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for bird watching?
  • Re-check the rental property to confirm that you've packed all personal items on check-out day. Check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden items. 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 feedback! Property owners rely on great reviews to stimulate new bookings. They'll be much obliged for your review. Alternatively, if something went awry, other vacationing families will be thankful you shared your experience find their best vacation rental. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to fix it.
