The Wacky Turtle is an updated two story townhouse which has it's own dock and benches on a lovely canal. All the comforts of home and more. This charming home is in a "Norman Rockwell" like community which is ultra safe for jogging, walking, and enjoying the outdoors. A paddle board and kayak await you to enjoy the waterways. If you like to golf we have golf that is great because the golf course is a stone's throw away. Enjoy your morning coffee and the gorgeous view from the 2nd story balcony or from the deck off of the lanai or your personal deck on the water. Enjoy the view or have dinner in the Carolina Room (Lanai), with all windows over looking the canal on the first floor. The master suite has a full bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has an attached sitting room with a daybed/trundle. This is the room that can be used as a 3rd bedroom, separated by toile drapes. This bedroom has a balcony overlooking the canal. It also has a smart TV. WiFi is provided throughout as well as 2 designated parking spaces convenient to the front entrance. Why did we name it the Wacky Turtle? Sit on the dock and enjoy the turtles. Golfers will enjoy the River Bend Country Club. You may rent this townhouse by the night (minimum of 2 nights), by the week, or by the month.
Tastefully decorated two story townhouse with deck, dock, balcony and more!

About Connie Beddow
Bill & I just retired, bought the Wacky Turtle, and put some hard work into reviving it. We live on the OBX most of the year and when visiting River Bend/New Bern we stay here. We love being on the water!
Connie Beddow purchased this Townhome in 2016
Why Connie Beddow chose New Bern
The view is lovely. Cleanliness is 5 stars. I have provided hotel quality white towels and linens for your comfort. The neighborhood is serene, safe, and enjoyable. This is ideal for anyone who loves the beauty of the outdoors and enjoys being outdoors. Walk throughout the neighborhood or jog, or bicycle. Or get out on the water and cruise the canals. The neighborhood is lovely. The decor of the home is simplistic. You will not be tripping over items. It is easy to stay organized, here. Enjoy a glass of wine on the deck and have casual dining in the Lanai. The folks who are permanent residents in the neighborhood are friendly and will wave to you when you are sitting on the deck or the dock. Two parking spaces are provided conveniently by the front entrance. By the way, River Bend is a part of New Bern which is only 10 minutes from the historical downtown. New Bern sits on the Neuse & Trent Rivers and has shopping, pubs, restaurants, live music, art galleries...and scenic sunsets. A paddle board and kayak are provided to enjoy the winding canals throughout River Bend. Paddle board along the canals or kayak. I have also furnished my guests with safety vests. The golf course is right here as well as 1 beach bicycle.
What makes this Townhome unique
River Bend has its own police department which keeps the neighborhood very safe. We are an official Community Watch Neighborhood. Unofficially, all of the neighbors look out for each other. Just like in the good old days. River Bend Country Club has a restaurant. Down the road from the Wacky Turtle about 1 minute away is Attitude's Pub with great home cooking. Friday nights they have karaoke. On Sundays they have "shag" dancing. A good pizza shop is right around the corner. You won't meet any strangers in River Bend. Don't forget to wave!

Better than Expected!
I have stayed at many vrbo's over the years - and this one by far was the nicest one I rented/stayed! All the little things that made it special but the décor and hominess of this waterfront townhome is what made it special for my stay. Loved the deck/dock/river view! Was the main reason we rented it and it did not disappoint.
We used the gas grill for dinner and all the kitchen appliances for breakfast and lunches. Beds were comfy and towels soft. Super close to New Bern so we explored the town one day and drove to the coast the next. Nice neighbors too as I took my morning walk. Would highly rec renting Connie's Wacky Turtle! Thank you!
A Hidden Gem with Beautiful Views at an Affordable Cost!!!
We were needing to find a place to stay to attend our Nephew's wedding in New Bern. "The Wacky Turtle" was the perfect find for the family to enjoy the weekend and we absolutely enjoyed the beautiful views. This place was so relaxing and is very well maintained along with modern interior decor. Even though it was rainy for most of the day on Saturday, we were able to utilize the sun room area to still enjoy the outside views while keeping ourselves dry from the weather. It was a great location with just a short drive from the downtown New Bern area and we cannot wait to be able to come back again. Connie was very accommodating and was a pleasure to work with during our stay. We have added this one to the top of our list as one of our favorite places to stay and hopefully can enjoy a longer stay next time with some nicer weather. It was a very relaxing weekend for all and you will not regret booking this place for your stay!!!
Nice condo. Very peaceful setting
Very pleased with condo. Quiet area. Relaxing outdoor waterfront. Would stay here again
Felt just like home!
My fiancé and I had the best time in New Bern! Connie's home was the perfect place to stay! Talk about clean... the property looks barely used! It was so cozy and we caught up on some much needed sleep! We will be back! 💜
Thanks for the kind words. You were the perfect Guests. Please come back and visit whenever possible. And don't forget, we have a beach house on the OBX named U Found Dory. I would love to host you there, also. Have a good week!
Perfect quiet getaway!!
My family and I just wanted a little getaway. We wanted to surprise my mama because, she loves to look at water of any kind! This property is beautifully decorated. Great location for a peaceful weekend. We will definitely come back!!!
The neighbor said he enjoyed watching your guest enjoy the paddle board and kayak. I loved having you and your family stay at the Wacky Turtle. I hope you got to see some turtles although it was still a little cold for them. Come back, anytime!
Beautiful and Comfortable!
Amazing home, it was cold so we didn't get to enjoy the outdoors much but got to use the indoors a lot. Close to many towns and easy to navigate... We will be back as my niece and nephew are moving to NC.
Historical downtown New Bern on the water has tours, pubs, restaurants, beautiful views, Tryon Palace, a live theatre, art walks, charm and more charm. Downtown is about 7-10 minutes from the Wacky Turtle
