Jill teaches elementary school and Marty is a building and electrical contractor.

Martin or Jill Whalen purchased this house in 2012

Why Martin or Jill Whalen chose New Bern

We bought Anchors Away after searching up and down the coast for a waterfront home close to the ocean yet secluded enough to avoid crowds.We have vacationed in New Bern for many years and are entranced by it's unique blend of southern charm, natural wonder, and historical significance.

What makes this house unique

We fell hard for Anchors Away the moment we opened the front door and could see boats from the entryway. In this busy world there is serenity, comfort, and calm that comes from slowing down, unwinding, and enjoying the water.

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5
I have rented many properties through VRBO, all of them good overall experiences, but this property was AMAZING! I rented it over Thanksgiving week so that I could visit from Texas and cook Thanksgiving for my son who is stationed nearby at Cherry Point and several of his Marine friends that couldn't get home to their own families. I brought my daughter and my 82 year old father out with me too. Martin, the owner of the property, went out of his way to be certain I had everything I'd need to make cooking a huge meal like that a success. Without my asking, he went out and purchased a large electric roaster so that I would be able to cook the turkey and still have access to the over for all of the other dishes. It was incredibly thoughtful, and I didn't realize how much I would need it until I was in the middle of cooking. The property was beautiful, comfortable, and in such a gorgeous area. In the garage they had kayaks and canoes, which the marines took out on the lake and loved. My daughter stayed happy all week with the free wi-fi, and my dad stayed in the sun room and enjoyed the gorgeous views of the lake. The area was safe, quiet, so relaxing.....everything I dreamed the vacation could be. I can not recommend this rental strongly enough, or thank the owners enough for sharing their home with my family.

Quiet and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
My family of four, including two older teens, booked Anchors Away Christmas week to visit my family in New Bern. It was fantastic!!! The home was exactly as described and more.

This home is tucked away in a very nice established golf and boating community. The golf club was nice and was very friendly to my 18 year old son who played the course alone that week. The neighborhood felt very comfortable, quiet, and safe.

The home was extremely clean, well decorated, and spacious! The kitchen, not pictured on the site, was surprisingly large and also included a comfortable eat in area.

The view from the living room bay window in the morning is just beautiful and a great coffee spot. Having the additional den and sun room made this home very comfortable for everyone to have their own space to watch tv, read a book, WiFi..ect...It rained for a few days while we were there, so this was very nice.

The owners were quick to respond to any and all questions we had. A truly enjoyable week and we'll definitely rent from Marty and Jill again.

I took my family for a vacation in New Bern for some fishing and relaxation. I have stayed in several homes before around New Bern, but this home will be the one that I revisit. It is located on the water with the ultimate scenic view, its in a quiet safe neighborhood and most of all, it has a pier for docking my boat during the stay. The home was very clean and spacious, but most importantly, the homeowners were fabulous in their dealing.

Anchors Away

Anchors Away (July 27 - Aug 1) This home provided the perfect place for us to use as a base for our vacation. It is perfect for exploring New Bern, a short drive to Morehead City / Atlantic Beach and is central to Hatteras and Carolina Beach. The neighborhood, River Bend, is quiet and an excellent location for Rest and Relaxation. The home is comfortable, clean and spacious. The views from the back deck, of the water and the surrounding properties, is a treat and the fresh water fishing from the house dock is fun for the kids. The owners are prompt to respond to any questions, concerns, or comments and we appreciated the chance to rent Anchors Away on short notice. Owners are outstanding people and we truly appreciated their willingness to work with us on obtaining our family vacation rental on short notice. Our family highly recommends this property for future renters. The owners are a pleasure to work with and quick to respond to any questions.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We rented the home for 5 days for a family reunion with our son who is in the Marines at Cherry Point. This place was absolutely perfect. Clean, peaceful, relaxing and has all the amenities you need to have a family gathering. We had dinner as a family 3 nights and enjoyed every minute we had to spend together. We were able to visit New Bern's historical sites and took a drive to Emerald Isle. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation. Thank you Marty and Jill for making our reunion a huge success.
