The Ultimate Dune is just what you're looking for. It's an oceanfront bungalow on the wide side of the island with tons of space for your friends and family. Dune features its own private beachfront deck with a boardwalk down to the beach.


HI, WE'RE NEW HERE
The home was purchased in the winter of 2021 and the new owners have been busy making upgrades to take it from a duplex to a massive single-family home with crisp new paint and furnishings to give the overall aesthetic a fresh new look. Be on the lookout for more changes as we go or follow us on Instagram: @theultimatedune


LIVING SPACES
Since Dune was a duplex in the past, there are two living rooms. Each one has intelligent TVs equipped with Roku and Chromecast, respectively, for streaming your favorite content. There's a PS4 and a Wii with games for rainy days too. Each side of the home also has a dining space for morning coffee, family feasts, and game nights. There is only one kitchen now. Dune is a comfortable mix of midcentury pieces and up-cycled beachy furnishings. 'Ultimately' we tried to give this one-level home a modern take on a late 60s surf shack.


BEDROOMS & BATHROOMS
There are five bedrooms, each with their own unique styling:
1. West queen suite: one queen, a modest ensuite bathroom, and TV
2. West double: two twin beds
3. West king: one king bed, no TV (for who prefer a peaceful room)
4. East queen suite: one queen bed, huge ensuite bathroom, and TV
5. East king: one king bed and TV
There are two full bathrooms with tubs and showers in the halls - one on each side, east and west.


KITCHEN
The kitchen is supplied with the usual suspects - stainless steel pots and pans, nonstick pans, silverware, knives, blender, Kitchen Aid stand mixer pro, two drip coffee makers, French press, electric flat top griddle, tupperware, drink ware, silverware, and more. The pantry has a collection of herbs and spices for your dinners in.


LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION
You're just a short trip away from eateries, grocery stores (Publix and Food Lion), and the Emerald Isle bridge. The Bogue Inlet Pier and Surf's Up Grille is less than a mile away by way of the beach.


LINENS
Clean linens included by a local company and are supplied for your stay (sheets, pillowcases, light quilts, towels, bathmats, and kitchen towels). All you need are your beach towels. And clothes. Don't forget clothes.

New Bern vacation rental tips and tricks:

Finding your perfect vacation home:

  • To book the most suitable vacation home for your budget, we strongly suggest reserving in Spring or Fall. You'll enjoy lower rental rates, greater selection, warm weather and the absence of large crowds at your favorite New Bern restaurants and activities. Many vacationers use this method to reserve larger homes, or to book a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unaffordable during the Summer.
  • In the New Bern area, The sooner your group can book, the better your selection will be. The most desirable vacation homes are reserved early. Booking your vacation property up to twelve months before your vacation dates is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental.
  • Owners sometimes offer promotional rates for veterans and active duty military. Make sure to check with your host or property manager to see if discounts are available for your group before you book.
  • Property managers frequently offer their guests an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which will generally cost between 1% - 5% of the stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed vacation time as a result of personal medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra gasoline expenses. Trip insurance might be a a life-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for details.
  • Look for your local New Bern visitors guide when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental home doesn't have one, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, visitor guides have coupons for local accommodations, tours and attractions.

Selecting and booking the right New Bern vacation home:

  • Start by selecting your a vacation week and a spending budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the configuration you need. The ultimate OCEANFRONT bungalow close to everything has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our search.
  • Specific information about bedrooms and bed counts & types is commonly accessible on booking websites. If not, reach out to the property management company before booking the vacation property. Note that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds and bunks.
  • If there's a certain New Bern beach you simply love, 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 persons with disabilities. Make certain to inquire about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • Are you bringing the family pet? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Remember to ask the property manager before booking, and study your rental agreement! Additional pet fees or costs could be applied to your invoice.

Tips to have a wonderful stay:

  • Store the owner's information in your smartphone and wallet.
  • Upon check-in, document any damages to the property and immediately alert the property manager. Record all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Hosts are available to help! Don't be shy to ask questions during your stay.
  • Respecting quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a stay significantly more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You will magnify your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are usually a fantastic source for finding the best local scenic spots.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Residents can frequently help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by locking the property when you are out, just like you would at home.
  • Just prior to departing, take a walk-through to make sure you have not forget any personal items. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • After your trip, leave a review! Property managers rely on great ratings to stimulate future reservations. They'll be thankful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other families will be thankful you shared your feedback find their best vacation rental. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager could control the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to fix it.
