About this Property

  • 1 Bathrooms
  • Apartment
  • Approximately 787 square feet

Welcome to our striking 2-bedroom, 1-bath apartment in the heart of downtown New Bern. The iconic Spaight House, constructed ca. 1770, initially faced the Trent River before being reoriented to Metcalf St. between 1908 and 1913, and a huge rear two-story addition also transformed it into a duplex . In the 1940S, the home was further divided into 7-8 dwellings. The last remodel, until the current times, was in the 1970s. Beginning in 2020, work began to update each unit to retain the historic allure, original detail, and appeal of the Spaight House while adapting to the modern lifestyle. The property has a enchanting mix of long-term tenants and short-term visitors.

A generous 785 square feet, our apartment features a King Bed, 3 Twin beds, Private Balcony, and Prime Location!

Unwind on the historic front balcony as you take in the photogenic Tryon Palace Gardens view. A glimpse of the Trent River awaits to your left. Embrace the convenience of being steps away from everything downtown New Bern offers!

Sink into the enormous couch, wrap up in a comfortable blanket, and stream your favorite shows on the rare occasion you aren't hanging out in downtown New Bern during your stay! Savor the beauty of the fireplace, but please don't light a fire! This one's just for looks!

Escape to our inviting primary bedroom, where a opulent king bed awaits dressed with European-style linens. European-style comforters are designed to provide each sleeper with their own individual covering, eliminating midnight blanket tug-of-war and improving individual temperature regulation. The blackout shades, 55” TV, Roku, dimmable lamps, and plenty of outlets make this bedroom a total hideaway.
This cozy getaway is ideal for relaxation and entertainment.

The freshly remodeled bathroom is complete with storage space and essential toiletries. Appreciate the soft Turkish cotton washcloths, hand, and sizable body towels, makeup washcloths, hypoallergenic body soap, paraben-complimentary shampoo and conditioner, and quality toilet paper and tissues. Indulge in a cozy and convenient stay with all the amenities you need.

The completely-equipped kitchen offers all the necessary appliances and silverware for a seamless cooking experience, including a dishwasher. Savor your choice of drip coffee or French Press - a luxury you won't find in a hotel room! Industry-leading Kinetico K5 water filter connected to the refrigerator ensures top-quality drinking water and ice for you and less plastic for the environment.

Bedroom 2 homes a twin-sized bed, a twin-sized trundle bed, and a twin-sized fold-out chair/bed. Enormous windows flood the space with natural light when you want it and have blackout shades when you don’t. A desk, chair, charging station, and basic office supplies (scissors, note paper, pens) cater to remote working needs.

The backyard includes a huge round table with 8 chairs and an umbrella that guests are welcome to use. The amenities may be shared with other guests and tenants in the building.

Free parking is available behind the building, and guests are also welcome to park on the street. We ask that each unit limit parking behind the home to one car only, with additional cars parked on the street.

A complimentary washer and dryer complete with detergent and dryer sheets are supplied in the apartment for your convenience.

Strategies for getting the best New Bern rental experience:

Sticking to your spending plan:

  • Book your vacation home as soon as possible. Rental schedules usually become available 12 months in advance (or in September just after Summer ends). Many families reserve their Summer rentals during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve get-togethers. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Summer time is high season in New Bern. Booking your vacation home in Fall or Spring is one of our best tips for saving money on your rental home. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of suitable homes.
  • Some hosts and property managers offer special rates for active duty military and veterans. Ask your property manager if special offers are available for your family.
  • Property management companies often offer renters an option to purchase vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed time as a result of medical-related issues or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel or additional gasoline expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask your host for additional information.
  • Often, property management companies and vacation rental houses supply Crystal Coast area travel guide magazines which include special offers, either offered directly by local businesses, or through a relationship with the property management company and the business itself. You can also find Crystal Coast visitors guide magazine and coupon books at local gas stations and shopping centers.

Narrow your Search:

  • First and foremost, have your family commit to trip dates and a maximum budget.
  • Decide how many bedrooms and the bed configuration your group needs. Downtown!! has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Crystal Coast rental home search.
  • Precise information about bedrooms and bed sizes & counts is commonly available on booking websites. Otherwise, email the property manager before you book your rental. Note that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which frequently includes pull-out couches. You'll need to establish what configuration is right for your vacation group.
  • Traveling with pets? Although a number of vacation homes allow pets or animals, guidelines and costs vary per property. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Ask your property manager before booking, and study your agreement thoroughly! Additional fees or costs may be applied to your agreement.
  • Are you visiting for a single event? Use a map search to find nearby rentals.
  • Proper accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for persons with disabilities. Make certain to inquire about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.

Tips to have a fantastic stay:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before traveling. Take a printed copy, and save the instructions to your smartphone.
  • Property managers are there to help! Don't be shy to ask any questions during your stay.
  • Protect the owner (and your stuff!) by locking the property when you are gone, just like you would at home.
  • Document any issues with the property at check in, and immediately e-mail them to the owner. We specifically recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain time stamps that are useful if a dispute arises.
  • Be a good neighbor! You wouldn't like troublesome vacationers bothering your peace and quiet. Use the golden rule for best judgement. If they like you, locals might even recommend great restaurants and scenic spots you would have not otherwise known about!
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local resident! Locals can frequently help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to rent beach equipment, have a great night out, or the best spots for crabbing?
  • Don't leave anything behind! Just before you drive away, take a walk through the property to confirm you've collected all of your things. Make sure to check garages, decks, and cabinets for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Leave a review! Hosts rely on good ratings to inspire more reservations. They'll be thankful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something went awry, other vacationing families will will be grateful for your review find their best vacation rental. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the owner had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded quickly to remedy it.
