This private suite is conveniently located about five miles from historic downtown New Bern, 45 minutes from Atlantic Beach, and just a few minutes from the airport. Event venues such as Carolina Colours and Abelina Plantation are also close by. You'll be delighted by the nautical-themed decor as well as the quiet and seclusion the place offers. My place is great for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.

The space

This home is across a private street from our our own. Parking is under an attached carport for your privacy and ease of access in inclement weather. You will enter into a sunny sitting room with large windows, a small table with two chairs, and a comfy chair for reading. The bedroom features a queen size bed and a desk. The door in the hall to the rest of the house is double dead bolt locked, and the rest of the house is used as my craft studio with a guest room for our friends and family. You will have complete privacy. The house is situated away from what little traffic we have in an old pecan grove, and is a short block-and-a-half walk to the Neuse River. The suite overlooks the back yard where you may see our two horses grazing. There is a 32" TV which receives the major broadcast networks plus a few others. It also has a built-in DVD player if you wish to bring your own movies to watch, or there is DVD rental available nearby. Coffee is provided along with a small refrigerator and microwave. Please ask if you need access to a washer and dryer as we can accommodate your request. This is a pet free and smoke free space.

Shirley's spot is secluded but still in reach of an airport and the most important highway in the area. We booked it as a "break spot" on our road trip from Charleston SC to Washington DC. The place was very clean, tidy and welcoming in a beautiful area and close to the small town of New Bern. We would definitely recommend this Airbnb to travelers on a road trip.

Shirley's place was secluded and perfect size for two people. We had a small issue and she took care of it right away.

A very restful accommodation in every respect and a super location for traveling by car in North Carolina's Southeast region. Host Shirley went above and beyond to make sure I found the house efficiently and felt welcome during my stay.

Shirley's place was just what we wanted in a weekend getaway for two. We didn't arrive till after dark but Shirley still came to introduce herself and was very friendly. She lives across the street. Quite area close drive to food and downtown activities. Great price, super clean space.
