About Janice Orr

I am a real estate broker in the New Bern area and available to show you properties in the area. New Bern is a beautiful town in Eastern North Carolina and I think it is the Best!

Janice Orr purchased this condo in 2004

Why Janice Orr chose New Bern

I purchased this property in the small downtown district of New Bern because the location was outstanding! You can easily enjoy all this Historic Downtown area has to offer. The location is hands down, one of the best in New Bern. The waterfront is only 2 blocks away....be sure to visit the waterfront and nearby marina while you are here!

What makes this condo unique

The ability to step out the door and be in the center of Historic Downtown New Bern

There are no hotel employees to deal with, it's a unique private condo...come and go without all the fuss.

Coffee shops, park, shopping, churches, resturaunts...you want for nothing!

Bring your bikes, kayak, boat or tennis shoes....plenty to enjoy.

Two blocks from the waterfront...you can't beat that!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5
Excellent location, perfect for walking the little town. Exceptionally clean and we would definitely stay here again. We did not have any problems with the internet (phones or ipad), the television is small and in an odd location especially for its size, if that matters to anyone else (did not to us). We were also not offered the "1st Morning Complementary Bagle Breakfast & Java", perhaps we were supposed to ask, but during our busy travel schedule it slipped our minds until it was too late, so perhaps a word of advice to future travelers would be to mention this yourselves as it would have been nice. Luckily, there are delicious restaurants near by for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Parking around back was very convenient, we did have a car that parked crooked in front of us, but we were able to maneuver out. Keep in mind this is a busy tourist town and parking is behind the building facing a busy restaurant. We would recommend visitors plan on walking.
All in all, you cannot beat the location and cleanliness.

cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5
I guess it depends on what you're looking for. I was personally looking for a place that was centrally located, clean, with enough space. This suite satisfied all of those. This is a nice cozy place above the Realty office and it has a nice personality. It is right in the middle of town which is great with restaurants very nearby. Clearly a lot of time was spent making sure the place was in great condition. Floors, kitchen, bathroom, towels and linens were all in great shape and even the comforter was still in the dryer when I arrived. If you're looking for the Waldorf-Astoria, then this place is probably not what you're looking for, however I would take this place over the aforementioned any time.

Regarding what a couple of reviewers have mentioned, you should probably watch the stairs. It's not that they are and they imminent threat but I did slightly worry of slipping down the stairs while wearing my socks probably just because the hardwood floors were so clean. As far as the Internet goes, it's probably an issue that has been resolved by now. You are supposed to connect to the Internet from the Realty office downstairs and when connected it works pretty well. This is instead of using the Wi-Fi that is coming from the apartment itself which has a lot stronger signal. I never heard it understand the reason for not connecting to that. My computer had no difficulties at all connecting but the iPad and galaxy seemed not to be too happy.

I would definitely recommend this to a friend and Janice was extremely accommodating.

Not good for families with small children

  • 3 of 5
I have a lot to say about this property. Overall, it was fine.There are lots of areas for improvement though. Keep in mind we traveled with a 3 year old and 1 year old.

Pros:
-Location is awesome! Right in downtown New Bern and there is a church nearby with a playground. There is a great place to eat for breakfast nearby also, Baker's Kitchen.
- The bedroom is very nice. It is quiet and cool with curtains that keep the light out. The bathroom is also great sized. The kitchen is nice too. You have all of the appliances you might have at home.
Cons
- The stairs are a dangerous situation for small children. They are steep and there is nothing blocking them. We asked the owner to install a pressure-mounted gate before our arrival, but she refused citing concerns that the gate itself would fall down the stairs. If this might be an issue for you, don't stay here!
- The internet is ridiculous. It hardly connects. You can't stream anything, which leads me to the next con.
- The TV is a joke. It is tiny and across the stairway. If you have children who like watching TV in the morning or enjoy watching TV yourself in the evenings you can forget it. There were several nights where my husband went out with family while I stayed home with the kids. I couldn't watch anything on the TV and the internet is so bad I couldn't stream anything from Netflix on our tablet.
- We had our 3 year old sleep out on the pull-out couch. This worked well except for a few things. The bed has sheets but there are no pillows for that bed. We had to use one of the pillows from the bedroom, which left my husband and I with only 3 flat pillows. It just seems to me that if you are going to provide a pull-out bed you would provide pillows to go with it. Additionally, the blinds in the living room area are a weave that are see-through. They block out no light and it was very difficult to keep it dark in there into the morning. We ended up stuffing towels into the tops of the blinds to block light.
- Small issue, but there are only 7 hangers in the closet. 2 adults staying for a week, you do the math.

This would be a wonderful place for a couple on a romantic getaway. I will not stay here again with my family though.

sweet suite in new Bern!

  • 5 of 5
my husband and I spent several days visiting New Bern and were so delighted that we chose to rent this charming and comfortable suite. It could not have been better located and offered us convenience as well as impeccable surroundings with our comfort in mind. Beautifully decorated and super clean, this has been one of our most favorite homeaway rentals. We heartily recommend this property.
