About this Property

Only six mins. to historic downtown New Bern. The Sanderling is a tiny cabin ideal for a couple or a family of 3 or 4. The cabin is located on a pine grove lot with access to a SHARED private dock on deep water Brices Creek. Brices Creek flows into the Trent and Neuse Rivers and then out to the Atlantic Sea. You are encouraged to use one of our kayaks to relish the water. Other activities include swimming, fishing, crabbing & boating. Don't miss a chance to prepare a s'more over our sizable fire pit.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE KING BED AND TWIN BED ARE IN LOFTS THAT REQUIRE RENTERS TO CLIMB LADDERS TO ACCESS THESE BEDS. THE LADDERS MAY BE DIFFICULT TO NEGOTIATE FOR OLDER ADULTS, PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES AND SMALL CHILDREN. Also, there are a few other rental units close by that may wish to use the fire pit and SHARED private dock. Please be respectful of other renters so everybody may adore their stay. Overall I believe you will find the unit to be very calming. The Tiny cabin is private but visitors must understand that you must climb loft ladders to access the beds and that THE SANDERLING DOES NOT HAVE IT'S OWN PRIVATE BATHROOM. YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A VERY NICE SHARED BATHHOUSE THAT HAS A FULL SIZE REFRIGERATOR, FULL SIZE WASHER AND DRYER, A SINK, A FULL SIZE TOILET AND A FULL SIZE SHOWER. You also have use of a SHARED dock that is behind The Grey Goose, our 3 bedroom 2 bath waterfront rental home, (off to the side of the Grey Goose not directly behind the home) used by The Grey Goose and one other rental cabin. THE SHARED DOCK CLOSES AT 9:00 P.M. OR DARK WHICHEVER COMES EARLIER. QUIET HOURS ARE FROM 9:00 P.M. TO 8:00 A.M. PLEASE RESPECT OTHER GUESTS.

Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Many property owners and vacation rental homes supply Beaufort, NC area printed travel guides which include coupons, either offered independently by vendors, or by a partnership between the property management company and the business itself. Search for these magazines and promotional books, as this allows travelers to experience the very same wonderful activities at a often considerable discounted.
  • Are the travel dates changeable? Off-season rates are usually a fraction of high fees.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Some vacation rental companies provide unique discounts to vets and active-duty forces. Be sure to ask property owner to see if your visiting crew is eligible for a discounted price.
  • Some vacation rentals are practically catered to particular visitors, whether it is beachfront units with weekly pier passes, city-center condos with nearby access to shopping or waterfront homes that have private kiteboarding launching areas. If there's a specific Beaufort, NC activity that you love, look for rental properties that cater especially to your needs.
  • Consider purchasing trip insurance along with your leasing agreement. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental price, provides visitors reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any days missed as a result of personal health related emergencies or hurricanes, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unplanned hotel stay or extra fuel.

The Rental Process

First-timers tend to be surprised at the number and wide variety of weekly properties available in the Beaufort, NC area. With such a big selection, vacationers are sure to locate a property that meets their wishes and spending budget.

Rental homes are usually owner operated or managed by property management companies. Vacation home management companies leverage scale, equipment and experience to provide convenient operational administration on behalf of the owner..

Below are some tips and suggestions to help you navigate the rental home search and reservation process.

Where to find and book the perfect vacation rental:

Do you believe "The Sanderling Tiny Cabin Water Access/Private Shared dock" is the best rental home for your next getaway? Read this checklist to ensure it fits your needs.

Search Early and Frequently

Beaufort, NC rentals book many months (and up to a year) in advance. For the best selection, begin your planning and search Six-Twelve months prior to your vacation. Many visitors choose to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve gatherings.

Select a Town and Time

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

Select a Size

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Remember that that most rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for your family. Most rental listings will describe each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Stick to a Budget

Most vacation homes are advertised with a cost range. Confirm the rate for your selected stay. It could be at the high end of the range. Make sure to get cost-sharing commitments from company prior to reserving a pricey rental. In most cases, one member of the group will be liable for making the whole reservation and recovering each person's contribution.

Create a list of "Preferences" and "Needs"

What home features is the family looking for? Do you simply want a vacation home with a swimming pool, jacuzzi or beach volleyball court? Are you more interested in wildlife or nightlife? Are linens offered with the rental, or will you need to provide your own? Gather a list of "necessities and wants" from your party to help narrow your search to the most suitable rental.

Accessability

Do a few people in your group have specialized needs? If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is needed, include that into your search. The majority of vacation rental listings will include a list of amenities.

Have You Considered Furry Family Members?

Remember to include your pets. While quite a few vacation homes permit dogs, rules and costs fluctuate per rental. Type of pet, size and breeds might be limited. Read your agreement carefully! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. Ask questions *before* you reserve!

Its Time to Search

Several websites exist to match guests with rental owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local vacation rentals" for local vacation rental management companies. Aside from having distinctive rental properties, local companies provide you with top-notch service..

Negotiate

Re-read the description to be sure the vacation home has everything you need. If it is something is missing, the rental home management company may know of comparable properties that better fit your desires and budget..

While not true for all rental properties, many rental owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. This is most effective throughout the off-peak season when many homes sit vacant.

Read The Agreement

It is advisable to know which services are included:

  • Electric bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the normal fee, travelers have to pay state taxes when renting "The Sanderling Tiny Cabin Water Access/Private Shared dock", as well as any other additional fees that may be mandatory based upon their circumstances, including an animal charge, earlier check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private swimming pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

Cancelling your Rental Home

Ensure that you are familiar with the cancellation policy before reserving. You'll likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental rate, provides guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental home costs) for any nights missed resulting from personal health-related emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unforeseen hotel stay or additional gas.

Reserve It

When everything seems right, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. You will likely be required to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Where to Get Assistance

Put the rental manager's contact information into your smart phone and wallet for convenient access to answers during your visit.

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your visit!

During your Stay

  • Record the condition of the rental unit right away. If you find wear and tear, or if repairs are needed contact the rental manager right away. This can protect against disputes during check out.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a fireplace, Television or hot tub. Get in touch with your property manager. They are there to help. A brief phone call eliminates many complications.
  • Be respectful of the neighborhood. Many times, neighboring properties are filled by permanent residents. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Natives are a terrific source of tips. Who better to ask where to get the best chicken wings, have a great date night, or the best spots for wildlife?
  • Make certain to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental home secured while you are away, just like you would at home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Make sure you've packed all of your things. Sweep each room in the house for left-behind possessions. Check bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cupboards, patios, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Once everything is out, perform a walk-through of the rental home to make sure no property damage occurred during your stay. If you can, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you rate your experience? Just about all property management companies and vacation rental websites allow travellers to give reviews. If your rental and/or property manager was first-rate, they'll appreciate your positive reviews. If anything went wrong and they failed to correct it in a practical manner, or if the property was not as described, you should make it a point in your critique.

Use Your Experience

Hold a vacation recap meeting with the members of your group. Does everyone want to re-book next year? Hopefully this guide helped you find a fantastic rental home. If not, you've gained useful experience that can help with the next search.
