About this Property

Direct shorefront duplex with humongous outdoor space overlooking the dunes and Oceanna Fishing Pier. When you holiday at the beach you want to be AT the beach not near the beach. Keys are included via a lock box so check in has no in person contact.

Our family has owned this unit for over 20 years and constantly are upgrading for our visitors happiness. The winter of 2019 to 2020 gave us an opportunity to do a total modernization with replacing most of the drywall, new floor and fans. We have new modern appliances, outdoor space furnishings just as a hotel would, hammocks below the outdoor space and my favorite feature, outdoor enclosed showers with HOT & cold water for your outdoor showering comfort.

New wall colors, more parking and new covered entryway are just a few of the upgrades We give pretty much everything you need to walk in and relax. We give a thoroughly outfitted kitchen with spices, paper goods (when in brief supply bring toilet paper and paper towels but we do start you off) , zip lock bags, aluminum foil ( bottom drawer beside refrigerator has paper towels and toilet paper) and just ask that you restock if you have time so the next guest has everything they need.

Each unit is a mirror image of the other except for color schemes and floor. Both are refreshed annually and have been happily shared with our visitors for 20+ years. The Vacation Rental By Owner listing for the sister listing is 666411 so you can read the reviews there if you like. We also have a new cleaning crew who lives locally to keep the unit in great shape throughout the season and follows current 2021cleaning recommendations. Each side has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths plus the outdoor shower provides outdoor appreciation when you come back from the beach. The giant outdoor outdoor space accepts everybody to spend time outdoor and eat on the outdoor space too if you like. It's a great experience preparing your food with the supplied outdoor grille, just replaced in 2019. 2019 & 20 upgrades include a few new ceiling fans, new 4 burner stainless steel grille, new couch, new dishwasher and new twin XL beds in the 3rd bedroom. The queen and king were both replaced in 2018 and the master bathroom was enlargened with a fabulous new tile shower. If you appreciate sunsets and sunrises please look at our photos. You'll notice very few sunrise photos (by choice) but tons of sunset photos. This is a rare east/west facing beach so you get awe-inspiring sunrises and amazing sunsets. We give beach chairs and some toys for the children too.

Having the pier just a few hundred yards away is an comforts you are sure to appreciate. Even if you don't fish you can walk on the pier and see if anyone else is having luck and savor a libation from their bar or better yet, make one and take it with you. If you like to surf, either side of the pier creates unreal breakers and has always been known as one of the most great surf spots on the island. If you would rather fish and don't like the pier, surf fishing right in front of our home can give lunch or dinner!

You'll quickly notice our beach is very generous, wide, tidy and relatively uncrowded. Our end of the beach is primarily single family homes for low density uncrowded beaches. If you want to walk the beach you can head towards the circle (town center for Atlantic Beach) and visit the world famed TackleBox (locals dive bar), have a drink outdoor at Idle Hour or eat at one of numerous eateries. Just a few blocks from our unit (simple walk) can have you at Amos Mosquito's, arguably one of the most exemplary eateries around and the Island Grille which is just up the street. It may be modest but the food is unbelievable. You can always drive over to the Morehead City waterfront and choose between 10 different eateries or head over to Beaufort and shop and dine on the waterfront.

Whithaven is a special place, I hope you get the opportunity to join us and see for yourself.

Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Many property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Beaufort, NC area vacation discount guides which feature money-saving promotions, either offered independently by merchants, or by a relationship between the property manager and the local business itself. These guides provide a good start to your vacation rental search.
  • Desire to steer clear of the crowds of people? The off-peak shoulder seasons can offer great rates on weekly rentals.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Some management companies offer discount rates to veterans and active-duty servicemembers. Make sure to confirm with property owner to see if your visiting gang is eligible for a reduced price.
  • Some rentals are practically designed to serve specific customers, whether it is downtown rentals with weekly pier passes, city-center homes with close access to restaurants or waterfront homes that feature private windsurfing launching areas. You'll receive the most value from a rental that most closely suits your ideal holiday setting, regardless if it costs a bit more.
  • Consider investing in trip insurance along with your leasing contract. Trip insurance, which usually add anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental price, provides visitors reimbursement of their trip expenses for any days missed as a consequence of medical emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unexpected motel stay or additional fuel. Trip insurance can be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens .

Searching for and reserving the best rental:

Before you start to book "DIRECT OCEANFRONT Duplex with large 3 level deck next to Oceanana Fishing Pier.", go through our short checklist of factors to consider.

Begin Your Search Early

Beaufort, NC vacation rentals book many months (and up to a year) in advance. Booking your rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates is highly recommended, whenever possible. Holiday gatherings can be a great time for family groups to plan their Summer family trips..

Select a Town and Date

Begin by figuring out which specific area of Beaufort, NC you prefer to visit, and the determine dates you'll be vacationing.

Just How Many Beds?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Remember that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for your family. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available online. Otherwise, get in touch with the property owner before you reserve the home.

What Exactly Are You Prepared to Pay?

Most rental properties are marketed with a cost range. Determine the rate for your preferred stay. It may be at the high end of the range. Make certain to get cost-sharing commitments from company prior to reserving a pricey vacation property. Typically, just one member of the group will be responsible for making the full reservation and collecting each person's contribution.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What amenities is your group interested in? Is a screened-in deck a necessity? Will the unit need to be beach front, the downtown area, or in close proximity to night life? Are sheets included with the rental, or do you need to take your own? Make a list of prioritized "necessities and wishes" from your party to help filter your search to the most suitable property.

Accessibility and Special Considerations

Commonly the older generation has trouble with staircases. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are required, include that into your search. Nearly all rental listings include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Remember to include your furry family members. Even though quite a few rental homes permit household pets, rules and fees vary per rental. Be sure to study agreements and contracts carefully. Extra fees may apply when pets are included. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Start your Search

Many websites exist to match vacationers with rental owners.. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local vacation homes" for local rental management companies. Local agencies typically have an exclusive assortment of rental properties daily and weekly.

Negotiate

When you have found your dream rental, check to confirm your trip dates are available.

Some rental home owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. This is most effective during the off-season when many rentals sit empty.

Read the Total Contract

Read through the full contract and be certain you understand who is liable for:

  • Utilities
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection

Cancelling your Rental Home

Cancellation policies vary with each property. Vacation rental management companies and property owners often offer their clients the choice to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs between 1% - 5% of your base rental cost, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any days missed a result of personal medical emergencies or weather, and additionally hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated motel stay or additional gas.

Reserve It

After you think you've found "the one", begin the reservation process. Remember that most rental agreements require a substantial rental down payment and/or security deposit to protect the vacation home owner.

Know Who to Call

Put the rental manager's contact info into your phone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your trip.

Congratulations! All that is left is making the most of your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any problems soon after you arrive. We also suggest immediately calling the rental home manager with a report of any problems, together with your request for any critical fixes. If there is a difference of opinion about liability later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will be valuable.
  • When there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the house, house access, swimming pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental manager promptly. A brief phone call avoids many complications.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Permanent residents probably live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking restrictions can make a trip significantly more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Locals may point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Don't forget to protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the home secured while you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Tidy up a lttle bit. Despite the fact that you're having to pay a housekeeping fee, The property really should be in very good condition. Kitchen sinks full of dirty dishes, excessive beach sand on the flooring and sticky messes should be dealt with prior to leaving.
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one last time and look for damages. We suggest walking through with the rental manager whenever feasible (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Many rental home management companies and rental websites make it easy for travellers to give reviews. If the rental and/or property manager was first-rate, they will likely appreciate your positive reviews. If anything went wrong, we advise being pleasant but honest with regards to your experience. Top property owners and managers will try hard to rectify the problem.

Learn from your Experience

Hold a meeting with the people in your group. Does everyone want to return next year? If everything was outstanding, next year's trip planning will be relatively easy. Otherwise, you have gained valuable rental search experience to aid with the next search.
