Wonderful weekend with a million dollar view!!
Pictures were very accurate, which is not always the case. Location was great for everything we wanted to do.
Thanks for sharing “serenity by the sea”!!
I sure hope this unit is available on my next vacation!!!
This was about my tenth time renting like this and this has been the best one yet!!
Very nice condo with breathtaking view of a large marina. As a sailor, this was important to me. The 10-15 minute drive to downtown New Bern seemed a wee long at first but became second nature later in the stay. My wife and I were very satisfied.
Supplies announced and furniture
I would have expected an extra roll of toilet paper and paper towel. We had to go buy our own. Only one towel per person and not of high quality. I washed them twice because there is no floor mats in the bathroom or a mop. The Victorian style sofa Burma very pretty just not very comfortable for people trying to relax on vacation. It is also in an awkward position as it faces the balcony and the tv is directly to the right.
Ewe did have great fun at the pool and caught enough crab for a full meal for two....catching with nothing more than twine and leftover bones from fried chicken.
It was a nice quiet retirement community. Be prepared to drive about 8 miles to the nearest major grocery store and prices much higher than stores in New Bern. Just shop before you arrive.....oh and one more thing to bring, hair conditioner. I still loved the location, mostly for the crab. I am thinking next year we will go back to the house in town though
Elaine, we're glad you enjoyed your stay overall! This unit is equipped with the appropriate amount of industry-standard toilet paper and paper towels. The supply is located under the kitchen sink, but we're sorry if you overlooked this by chance. The photos accurately depict the placement of the sofa, which is positioned so you can enjoy the TV and the view at the same. However, we're sorry if this caught you off guard. The owners wish you would have reached out while in residence with any issues or concerns so they could have addressed them promptly for a most comfortable stay. They strive to provide excellent guest experiences and we're confident this condo will Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback! Best, the Evolve Team
A wonderful peaceful community with nearby access to many attractions
I grew up going to Fairfield Harbour with my grandparents every single year for over 22 years. I was so happy to take my daughter back to the place I have loved so dearly and the condo was a PERFECT spot for us! First, the condo itself was very spacious with a well-equipped kitchen. Being on the second floor is a bonus, as there wasn't a ton of stpes to carry everything up. The balcony stretches the length of the condo, allowing for plenty of area to space out. Second, the area. Fairfiled Harbor is a wonderful place to visit, and this condo is at a very ideal location within the community. You have the views of the harbor which are fantastic to wake up to and finish a day with. There is a fishing dock very close by. There are two ponds within the community that have sidewalks surrounding them (growing up we stayed at Sand Castle Village II), you can get to both of them within a relatively close walk. The pool and rec center are also within walking distance. Third, New Bern itself has a ton of fun things to do, but we spent a lot of our time traveling too and fro. Having grown up going to the area, I know many of the local fun things to do and we crammed as much as we could in our brief 1 week stay. Crystal Coast is about a 45 minute drive away (go to Fort Macon where they have showers in a bath house!). Beaufort is always a fun shopping experience and get ice cream at The General Store after pizza at Black Sheep. The Aquarium is great for kids as well. Take a ferry ride over to Cape Lookout and go shelling, or stay on the sound side where the water is great for kids. You can walk almost 100ft out from shore and still only be knee deep! And last, the owners were very friendly and attentive to any needs keeping me updated on a power outage we had when we arrived etc. You can tell they take great pride in their space and it shows in the care and decor as well as the quality of the furnishings.
We LOVE New Bern, specifically Fairfield Harbor and I will continue to visit. I'm definitely keeping this one on my list as a place to go.
Great spot for rest and relaxing!
The spot was perfect for the few days of rest and relaxing that my husband and I needed. Enjoyed coffee and a good book on the balcony each morning. Kitchen stocked with all the necessary items to cook/dine in. Amenities at recreational center had something for all ages. Able to charter a fishing trip and rent kayaks all without leaving the marina area. New Bern with restaurants and shopping is just a short drive away. Would definitely stay here again!
