About this Property

We would like to welcome you to "The Smooth Plateau" Cottage on Taylor's Creek in Beaufort.

Our home is inviting and tidy and is supplied with everything you need, including TVs in the living room and each bedroom, high speed wireless internet and a modern kitchen with all new appliances. Fresh bed linens are supplied complimentary of charge as are bath towels and wash clothes.

Our bungalow has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The shower for the second bath, is an outdoor shower which is private and effortlessly accessible directly from the bathroom.

There is also a additional room off the living room which has a calming day bed. We call it the "Hemingway Room" as the decor is inspired by Hemingway's boat, Pilar.

We've just added a giant floating dock with room for 2 boats and there is also a floating kayak dock, fold down swim ladder, fish cleaning station and bench seating on the pier.

From the front porch and dock, you will appreciate a continuous parade of boats, wild horses and pirate shenanigans. With deep and calm water, Taylor's Creek is the ideal harbor.

You will only be 1/2 mile from downtown Beaufort, where you'll find plenty of eateries, bars and stores.

It's a fast drive to world class beaches, the ICW, the North Carolina aquarium, charter boat fishing and cruising and diving. There are fishing tournaments and festivals galore, including The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, The Beaufort Pirate Invasion, The Beaufort Historic Home and Garden Tour, The Beaufort Music Festival, Wooden Boat Show, Harker's Island Duck Decoys, and NC Seafood Festival. There are always fun activities in town including live music nearly nightly on the town boardwalk.

Beaufort was one of Blackbeard's favorite hangouts. Had you been our guest in 1717, you would have laid gaze on Blackbeard's mooring , as the home that he frequently visited while on holiday from pirating, is diagonally behind us. There is little doubt that he walked across our unit to reach his girlfriend's home. He ran aground off Beaufort's coast 300 years ago, and the Beaufort branch of the North Carolina Maritime Museum proudly displays artifacts salvaged from his ship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge.

Beaufort has been voted peerless yachting destination and America's Coolest Modest Town. The Cape Lookout National Seashore was newly voted most attractive National Park.

If you rent our home we ask that you respect the tranquility and privacy of your neighbors. While Beaufort has become a tourist destination, it is still a peaceful community, especially after dark.

We know you will savor your holiday at "The Painless Plateau" in Beaufort .

Wallet-Friendly Tips

  • Many management companies and vacation rental houses supply Beaufort, NC area travel catalogs that feature coupons, either offered independently by vendors, or by way of a partnership between the property management company and the itself. Look for these magazines and promotional books, because this allows visitors to experience those terrific activities at a typically considerable discounted.
  • Are your travel dates changeable? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of peak fees.
  • Plenty of vacation rental companies and owners offer savings for active and veteran members of the US Armed forces, or returning vacation goers of the same property. Be sure to confirm with property management company to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a rate reduction.
  • Some rental properties are basically designed to serve specific vacationers, whether it is downtown homes with weekly pier passes, city-center homes with close access to restaurants or waterfront homes that feature their own windsurfing launching areas. You should prioritize your proximity to the family activities and interesting attractions you are most excited about.
  • Property management companies and individual rental owners commonly offer customers an option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic rental price, offers guests reimbursement of their trip costs for any nights missed resulting from health-related emergencies or storms, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unforeseen motel stay or additional gas. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

The Rental Process

Some people are surprised to discover the number of vacation homes are offered in Beaufort, NC. With such a big selection, clients are certain to find a rental which fits their desires and price range.

Rentals are frequently owner operated or managed by property management companies. Vacation home management companies leverage scale, technology and practical knowledge to provide convenient operational management on behalf of the owner..

Here are some tips and techniques to help you understand the vacation rental search and reservation process.

Where to find and reserve the perfect rental property:

Do you think "Waterfront Cottage With Dock on Taylor's Creek - Short Walk to Downtown Beaufort" is the perfect vacation property for your next visit? Look over this guide to make sure it fits all of your needs.

Start Your Search Early

Beaufort, NC rentals start booking very early. To find the best selection, begin your planning and search 6-12 months before a trip. Many families choose to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year gatherings.

Choose your Town and Vacation Week

Sometimes, the hardest part of planning your vacation is deciding on where to go, and when. As soon as the big decisions are tackled, the rest is more straightforward.

Choose a Size

How many relatives are planning to share your getaway? Remember that a lot of vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the home's living room. It is important to figure out what is acceptable for your group. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly accessible on the internet. Otherwise, email or call the property manager before you book.

Stay on a Budget

Confirm that "Waterfront Cottage With Dock on Taylor's Creek - Short Walk to Downtown Beaufort" works with your budget *during your desired week*. Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from loved ones well before reserving a pricey rental property. A single individual in your group will have to be in charge of collecting contributions and accepting responsibility for the complete rental price at time of booking.

Let's Talk Amenities

What home features is your group trying to find? Is a screened-in deck a requirement? Would you like to be away from it all, or close to a city setting? Are bedsheets included with the rental, or will you need to bring your own? Build a list of priority amenities to facilitate narrow your search.

Special Factors to consider

Do people in your crew have specific needs? Be sure to remember and inquire about wheel chair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Are you or other members of the crew travelling with a pet dog? Although a number of rental homes allow furry friends, guidelines and costs fluctuate per rental. Make sure to read descriptions and contracts carefully. Charges may apply when animals are included. Ask questions *well before* you reserve!

It Is Time to Search

. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local rentals" for local vacation home management companies. Local property management companies pride themselves on an exceptional vacation experience.

Negotiate

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

Although not true for all rental homes, many property owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Off-peak season offers your best opportunity to make a deal for a reduced rate.

Study The Agreement

You should know which services are included:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

Ensure that your price includes all taxes and fees.

Cancelling your Vacation Property

Cancellation policies are different with each vacation rental. Many rental property contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which ordinarily costs ranges from 1% - 5% of the standard rental price, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent vacation property costs) for any days missed a result of personal hospital emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unforeseen hotel stay or additional gas.

Reserve It

When everything seems right, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. You will likely need to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Know Who to Call

Put the rental manager's contact information into your smart phone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your stay.

Good luck on reserving your rental! You're on the way to a wonderful vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any damages when you arrive. We also advise promptly calling the rental manager with a report of any wear and tear, along with your request for any needed repairs.
  • If you have any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, property access, swimming pool functions, etc... we suggest you ask the rental manager promptly. A brief phone call helps prevent many complications.
  • Make sure to be a good next-door neighbor. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking restrictions can make a trip a little more pleasant.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a terrific source of advice. Who better to ask where to order the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best places for wildlife?
  • Make sure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental home locked up when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • Double-check every space of the vacation property to make sure you've collected all personal belongings.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one last time and look for property damage. If at all possible, do this walk-out inspection with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you rate your experience? Virtually all vacation rental websites ask for reviews after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will appreciate your glowing critiques. If anything went wrong, we recommend being pleasant but sincere with regards to experience. Top property owners and managers will try very hard to rectify the situation.

Learn and Improve

Did they enjoy their stay? We hope this guide steered you to a fantastic vacation rental. Otherwise, you've gained invaluable rental search experience that can help with the next search.
