Walkable grocery, eateries, shopping & mini golf. We want to know if something interferes with your appreciating your stay. House is outfitted with preparing essentials, and lines are PROVIDED!!

Absolutely No Smoking or family dogs and cats. We request that visitors do not smoke near the home including the decks because some smoke smell inevitably finds its way into the home and we pride ourselves on including a "smoke-complimentary" experience as much as possible. If you smoke outdoor please try not to disturb renters on the other side of the duplex.

There is a brief walk to the uncrowded Emerald Isle beach. This little group of homes has its own public entrance to the beach with NO public parking. Folks cannot park on our road so the only people that use this access are on this street. The home is at the end of peaceful cul-de-sac. There is essentially no traffic on our street or in front of the home. Most of the close by homes are units but we haven't noticed a lot of noise or seen any big events. They too have a no smoking, no dogs and cats policy.

Often there is a fabulous tidal pool during low tide. As with any beach (especially one with sandbars and without lifeguards), know what to do in terms of rip tides. On Emerald Isle, we don't get the monster waves you see on the outer banks, but everybody should know about rip tides. We have life jackets for anyone who isn't a great swimmer.

Emerald Isle is bicycle amicable with bicycle paths along the major roads and straighforward bicycle rental if you cannot bring your own. Bicycle or walk to the Emerald Plantation Shopping or Food Lion each morning to pick up a coffee or a food item. It's less than a mile away. You can walk effortlessly to the pier via the beach (about a mile away). Emerald Isle Woods Park is also about a mile away and has a pretty view of the sound. Walking distance to water park, cinema, shopping, mini-golf, and eateries. Canoe units and surf shop are also walking distance.

Beach:
Access: On your left, there is a public beach access. In the morning and evening, the beach isn't that busy. To get to the beach, turn right out of the home and walk to the end of the street.
Fishing: The Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier is a 1.6-mile drive or a 1-mile walk on the beach to the east. Surf fishing is fashionable especially when the beaches are peaceful.
Equipment: The home has beach chairs and the usual collection of "floaty things" as the children call them. There are two beach carts.

Check-in/check-out: Standard Check-In time is 4 pm and check-out time is 10 am. These hours may be flexible depending on availability. If the home is cleaned and no one is in the home, we'll tell you and you can potentially check in as early as you like on that day.

Towels: Visitors should bring their own bath and beach towels. There isn't time to turn around the home for the next guest and tidy towels.

Parking: There is covered space for two cars (one behind the other). There is also a parking pad to the right where you can put another car.

Food in the House: We've tried to stock the kitchen with necessary silverware and cookware. If anything is missing, please tell us so we can address the problem. You will also find standard spices, common items (oil) and some standard refrigerator stuff. Thus you will find some items in the refrigerator. These items are left because when we have rented, we have been frustrated that preparing is hard without them and I end up doing additional runs to the grocery store. Please feel complimentary to use anything you find. If you have food you don't want to bring home and won't spoil in the next few weeks, feel complimentary to leave it.

Next Door: Keep in mind that we cannot control the behavior of visitors who rent the other half of the duplex - and they may smoke on their decks. Please tell us if their behavior (smoking or otherwise) interferes with your relishing your stay. Please do not park on their side (the West side) of the building

Finding and booking the right vacation property:

Before you book "Ocean View, EASY beach access, close to shopping!", examine our brief collection of things to consider.

Begin Your Search Early

Like many renowned vacation spots, In Beaufort, NC the best vacation homes are booked early. For the best selection, start your planning and search Six-Twelve months before your trip. Holiday reunions can be a popular time for family groups to plan their Summer family trips..

Find your Spot and Choose Dates

Oftentimes, the most challenging portion of planning your trip is choosing where to go, and when. When the big decisions are tackled, the rest becomes simpler.

How Much Rental home Do You Need?

Establish who is attending the vacation, and how many/what sort of bedroom setup you will need. Try to remember that a lot of rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room space. It is important to figure out what is suitable for the company. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically accessible online. Otherwise, email or call the property manager before you reserve the home.

Create a Spending Limit

Most rental properties are marketed with a cost range. Determine the rate for your chosen stay. It might be at the top end of the range. Make sure to get cost-sharing commitments from company before reserving a pricey rental home. One member of your company needs to be in charge of getting contributions and acknowledging responsibility for the entire rental payment at time of booking.

Rental Home Amenities

What property features is your group interested in? Are you looking for a vacation property with patio lounge? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or nightlife? Does the home have bicycles and body boards available as part of your stay? Gather a list of prioritized "needs and wants" from your group to help filter your search to the most appropriate home.

Special Issues to consider

Elderly family members will appreciate you for not renting a stairs-access-only condo on the 3rd floor. Make sure you remember and ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment requirements..

Take the Dog

Remember to include your companion! Pet guidelines are different at each property. Read descriptions thoroughly. A number of restrictions may possibly dismiss a potential rental. Be sure you read descriptions and contracts carefully. Extra charges may apply when pets are added. Ask questions *prior to* you reserve!

Where to Search

Once the place, dates and guests are decided, search multiple sources for the very best vacation home selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local vacation homes" for local property management companies. Local rental management companies pride themselves on a first-class vacation experience.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to be sure the vacation rental has everything that you need. If lacking, the home management company may know of similar properties that suit your style and budget..

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try asking for an extra night. Off-peak weeks will be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

Study the Total Contract

Learn which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Power bills
  • Internet
  • Phone service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)

Cancellation Policies

Be sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy before booking. You'll probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergencies and weather events, It provides relief should catastrophe strike.

Reserve It

When everything looks right, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. Bear in mind that most rental contracts will require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation rental owner.

Know Who to Call

Put the property manager's contact information into your phone and wallet for quick access to answers throughout your trip.

Congrats on booking your rental! You're on the way to a terrific vacation!

During your Stay

  • To make sure no damages are attributed to your visit, make a record of any problem areas of the rental. Call the property manager immediately to report your observations. This will protect against disputes during checkout.
  • You may need instructions for a gas fireplace, TV or hot tub. Call your property manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
  • Be respectful of the local community. Residents often times live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking restrictions can make a vacation considerably more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Local residences may point you in the right direction.
  • Make sure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the home locked up when you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Tidy up a little. Although you're having to pay a housekeeping fee, The property should really be in sound condition. Sinks stuffed with dishes, excessive sand on the floors and sticky messes should really be dealt with before you leave.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental home one last time and check for damage. If you can, do this walk-out inspection with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, be sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your rental home? Virtually all rental management company websites request testimonials after your stay is complete.
