We are Jill and Marty Whalen. We currently live in Colorado where Marty is from. Jill was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina.

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

Martin or Jill Whalen purchased this house in 2012

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.

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.

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.

BEST FEBRUARY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I would like to say that staying at Anchors Away this past week, while my son attended Jimmy Weinert Training Facility, for motocross; was one of the best family vacations. The location and neighborhood were ideal. Located just 18 miles from the training facility, each morning we had a short easy 20 minute drive to the track. My daughter also had the enjoyment of horseback lessons at Gables Run Equestrian center about 10 miles away. The house was perfect for families, offering plenty to do. We tried fishing from the dock, walking & scootering in the neighborhood. I would definitely go back when we have time, hopefully later in year to try kayaking. Thank you

THANKSGIVING VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We visit New Bern at least once a year to visit family and friends. We have stayed in lots of VRBO houses and found Anchors Away to be a wonderful stay! The house was "hospital" clean ---- really! and extremely spacious! We loved the view of the peaceful water even though the rain kept us from enjoying the great looking dock. Riverbend is a quick ride to all the wonderful activities that New Bern has to offer and the neighborhood seemed to be quiet, charming and safe. I don't know the owner Marty, but feel as he was a friend after a few chats on the phone. He was a great owner to work with!

MARJORIE AND MARK

  • 5 of 5
Anchors Away (Oct. 5 - 11) provided the perfect place for us to use as a base for exploring New Bern as a retirement destination. The neighborhood, River Bend, is quiet and an excellent location for New Bern and surrounding areas. The house is very comfortable, immaculately clean and spacious - who would want to stay in a hotel after an experience of renting your own home away from home? And, the expansive view of the water is sure to impress. There are many great restaurants in the area, lots of activities, and going to the beach for a day is a short distance. A guest notebook is provided that provides lots of helpful information. The owners are prompt to respond to any questions, concerns, or comments and we appreciated the chance to rent Anchors Away. We highly recommend the property for future renters. And, we hope to live in New Bern in the not too distant future.

PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My wife, college age daughter and myself recently stayed at this great home on a visit to see our son that is a marine at Cherry Point NC. It was great, a million times better than even a very nice hotel. The house is in a very nice neighborhood with a great location. Its a well maintained home and is actually pretty large. We use the kayaks one afternoon and had a blast. Our son the Marine really enjoyed a well deserved change of pace and scenery at this very quiet peaceful home on the water. My wife and I travel a fair amount and have rented several homes in the past but can easily give this home a 100% thumbs up. Sincerely a happy traveler
