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 completely furnished OCEAN FRONT home - not a condo - in handsome 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 modernized 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 entirely 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 elegant 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 remodeled in early 2023 as well. Tub and shower are elegant 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 charmingly '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, 3 flat-screen HD-TV's (55" in living room), 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 magnificent 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 exhilarating 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, refreshed 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 humongous difference between OCEAN-FRONT and 1 or 2 or 3 homes in from the beach. No carts or wagons needed. 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 appreciate your inquiry 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!

Our top New Bern vacation rental tips and tricks:

When to visit & When to reserve a rental home:

  • June, July, and August are the most expensive months in the New Bern area. Booking a rental in Fall or Spring is a great way to save on your vacation. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of acceptable homes. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable during the high season. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook Winter holidays for a New Bern vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Thanksgiving and Christmas are great times to gather with friends and family at your favorite beach.
  • Book your vacation home as soon as possible. Rental schedules often become available twelve months in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many families reserve their Summer rental homes during Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers. Reserve before these holidays for best selection.
  • Some property managers offer rate reductions for active duty military and veterans. Ask your property manager if rate reductions are available for your group.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer renters an option to obtain vacation insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed time as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, as well as evacuation charges, such as an unexpected hotel or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for more information.
  • Find a copy of your local New Bern visitors guide magazine when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great local articles, visitor guides have money saving offers on nearby shops and restaurants.

Filter your rental search:

  • First and foremost, have your family decide on date ranges and a maximum budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and what type of bedroom configuration your group requires. Ocean-front 4-bed house @ condo cost. Step off deck to beach. Brand new kitchen! has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our New Bern rental home search.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is almost always available online. If you don't see them listed, call the property owner before reserving the rental. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in living rooms.
  • If there's a certain New Bern destination you long to visit, search for homes that are either close by, or those that cater especially to your needs.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. Remember to confirm all required amenities are available before reserving a rental
  • If your family is bringing pets, you'll need to find a pet-friendly rental. Ask for details on breed, weight, and type restrictions. Some property managers require additional pet deposits and fees.

More tips for your visit:

  • Take a copy of the host's contact number and arrival/departure procedures for your rental property. Store the host's contact information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • During check-in, record any damages to the property and immediately contact the owner. Record all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Hosts are there to help! Feel free to ask questions during your stay.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Often, adjacent homes are occupied by local residents. Respecting late-night noise limits and parking policies is the right thing to do.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Locals can usually 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?
  • Ensure you protect the owner (and your stuff!) by locking the rental while you are gone, just like you would back home.
  • Double-check the rental property to confirm that you've packed everything on check-out day. Check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Go through the rental one final time and scan for damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever you can. If the property manager is not available, remember to take photos and video of the rental to record its condition at check-out.
  • After your trip, leave a review! Hosts rely on good ratings to stimulate future reservations. They'll be much obliged for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went awry, other vacationers will appreciate that you share your review find their best rental home. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the host could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to remedy it.
