The towns of North Carolina’s Crystal Coast have a beauty all their own, and something to offer everybody.

Our condo is located in the Southern Outer Banks, in the town of Pine Knoll Shores. Its location in between Atlantic Beach and Emerald Isle offers visitors the unspoiled beauty of the pristine beaches while still being in close proximity to an array of boating and fishing activities, shopping, and dining in eateries specializing in new local seafood.

The rich history of the area is evident whether you are strolling the streets of Beaufort, the third oldest city in North Carolina, exploring the grounds of Fort Macon National Park or scuba diving the Graveyard of the Atlantic in search of Blackbeard's famed ship 'Queen Anne's Revenge'.

Our three bedroom, 2-1/2 bath unit offers you everything you need for a ideal family holiday get-a-way. Sea Glen is a modest, peaceful complex located on the barrier island of Bogue Banks. It is located in the maritime forest right next to the 200 acres of the Theodore Roosevelt Natural Preserve. The beach is wide and uncrowded. It has a friendly, family mood. You can meet and mingle with the other Sea Glen visitors or maintain your privacy - the choice is yours.

These rooms share the 2nd full bath. Downstairs there is a thoroughly-supplied kitchen, dining room, sunroom, sizable living room, plus a half bath. Since the beach faces the south, you can relax and appreciate yourself on the outdoor space and watch spectacular sunrises and/or sunsets.

Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Search for the official tourism bureau in the area you want to travel. Most established tourism bureaus offer printed guide books with savings for accommodations, dining and attractions. These guides can provide an excellent start to your rental home search.
  • Willing to alter your dates? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of maximum pricing.
  • Are you a military veteran? Some property management companies offer discount rates to veterans and active-duty military. Make sure to check with property management company to see if your vacationing group is eligible for a markdown.
  • Some vacation rentals are essentially designed to serve particular customers, whether it is downtown units with weekly pier passes, city-center condos with close access to restaurants or waterfront homes that feature private kiteboarding launching areas. You should prioritize your proximity to the activities and attractions you are most looking forward to.
  • Think about investing in trip insurance with your leasing agreement. Trip insurance, which usually costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, provides vacationers reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any nights missed as a consequence of personal health related emergencies or hurricanes, in addition to ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unplanned hotel stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

The Rental Process

First-timers are often times shocked at the number and wide range of short-term vacation rentals available in the Beaufort, NC area. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of global search sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Nearly all vacation rentals in Beaufort, NC are privately owned and many are represented by experienced local rental management companies. For owners not directly involved with the management of their vacation home, management companies are critical in assisting travellers with reserving, checking-in, housekeeping, as well as routine maintenance problems that may occur.

We have developed a short guide to assist you in getting most out of your rental home experience.

Search Early and Frequently

Beaufort, NC vacation homes start booking very early. To ensure the very best selection of homes, we suggest searching and reserving your Beaufort, NC getaway Six-12 months before your travel dates, whenever possible. Holiday reunions can be a popular time for groups to plot their Summer holiday escapes..

Decide on a Community and Date

Quite often, the hardest part of preparing for your vacation is figuring out where to go, and when. As soon as the big decisions are tackled, everything else becomes simplier and easier.

Just How Many Beds?

Confirm who is going, and how many/what kind of bedroom configuration you'll need. Remember that that a lot of vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for your company. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available online. Otherwise, contact the property owner before you reserve the home.

Establish Your Budget

Most rental homes are marketed with a price range. Determine the cost for your chosen week. It may be at the high end of the range. If several individuals or relatives are sharing the cost, make sure that everyone understands their responsibility and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to pay. One individual in your group will have to be responsible for collecting payments and agreeing to responsibility for the complete rental cost at time of booking.

Make a List of "Wants" and "Needs"

What amenities is the family looking for? Is a pool reallynecessary?Are you looking for a rental property with outside dining area? Will the unit need to be oceanfront, in the downtown area, or close to shopping? Are sheets offered with the rental, or will you need to bring your own? Gather a list of "needs and desires" from your party to help narrow your search to the perfect property.

Accessibility and Special Concerns

Elderly guests will thank you for not renting a stairs-access-only condominium on the 3rd floor. Make certain to remember and inquire about wheelchair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment requirements..

What About 4-Legged Family Members?

Are you or other individuals in the family visiting with a pet dog? Dog guidelines are different at each rental property. Read descriptions carefully. Examine your contract very carefully! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. Ask questions *well before* you book!

The best places to Search

Once the location, travel dates and attendees are decided, search multiple sources for the best rental home selection. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local vacation homes" for local rental management companies. Local agencies often times have a unique collection of rental properties daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

When you have identified your dream rental, check to confirm your travel dates are available.

Some rental home owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. This is most effective through the off-season when many properties sit empty.

Study the Entire Contract

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

  • Electric bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the regular fee, vacationers have to pay local taxes when booking "Two Steps to the Beach", as well as various other additional fees which may be mandatory depending on their situation, including an animal fee, earlier check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heating fee for private pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

If you'd like to Cancel

Ensure that you understand the cancellation policy prior to booking. Vacation home management companies and home owners typically offer their clients the option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental price, can provide travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any nights missed due to personal health-related emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas.

Reserve your Rental Property

As soon as you think you've identified "the one", begin the booking process. Bear in mind that most rental agreements require a substantial rental deposit and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation rental owner.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

Put the rental manager's contact information into your phone and wallet for quick access to answers during your stay.

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!
