About Mary White

Mark and Mary fell in love with New Bern over 25 years ago while visiting Mary's parents who retired to New Bern and still reside here. With 3 young children at the time, the 10 hour ride was well worth it. There is so much to do with the ocean so close or boating on the river. There are many historic sites nearby. River Bend Country Club is beautiful with a 18-hole golf course and restaurant. There are many restaurants in the historic town of New Bern. Plus, something is always happening in the town with the Tryon Palace, museums, theatres, shopping, the farmers' market and antique stores. Also, there are so many churches in the area. We absolutely love it here and we love our home. We hope you will love it too.

Mary White purchased this house in 2013

The most well equipped VRBO we have ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most perfect VRBO we have stayed in and we have stayed in some from Vail CO to Emerald Isle Beach, NC. Each bedroom had a theme and was beautifully decorated. The beds were all very comfortable and even the towels were soft & luxurious! The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed and more, including laundry supplies. We will definitely be back.

Worked well while we waited to get in our new house.

  • 4 of 5

House was a little crowded with 3 adults and a child, but all in all, it worked out to our benefit. Hostess was very accommodating of our needs and willing to assist when an issue came up. Her father and nephew were as close as a phone call. Would highly recommend.

Nestled in a quiet corner of River's Bend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a quiet, beautiful month of Feb., in a warm and friendly, family furnished home. We did not need to bring anything, but our toothbrushes. Golf course right around the corner, and only 5 miles from New Bern and many vibrant restaurants.

We loved our stay

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

As a family we needed a home away from home for 4 weeks and this was the perfect fit for us. The home was cozy, very clean and hospitable to the pace of life we enjoy. The full service kitchen along with ample sized bedrooms and well equipped bathrooms made this house feel like a home very quickly. The screened in porch allowed us to enjoy being outside but out of the rainy weather we experienced while we stayed there.

Mark and Mary are incredibly easy to work with. Their quick and clear communication made our stay feel safe and accommodating.

Family Visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a 7 week stay at this property. The house in a perfect location for those who like being close to the water. We fished from the dock located nearby and enjoyed walks around the neighborhood. Almost every morning or evening the deer would come out of the forest next to the property and cross the road in front of the home. We were very comfortable in this home and it was supplied with everything we needed. Excellent place for a family.

Nicely Appointed Home with Trees

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house was nice and generally quiet during our stay. I would recommend it for those who wish to get away from more populated areas. Would have been nicer to have more active channels on the cable system (only a small number were active plus Netflix). While admitting that seeing deer out front from the Kitchen windows early one morning was neat -- not having closable blinds at night in the main areas (i.e., Living, Dining, & Kitchen) was a bit disturbing. We were disappointed that the bird feeders were not attended to prior to our arrival. It was nice to have trees to look at out back and experience a quiet atmosphere.

Owner's Response: Thank for your comments, we welcome any helpful hints that can make your stay and future guest comfortable. We have put blinds on the kitchen windows, and have added more channels to the TV. The hummingbird feeder is always full and there is sweet water for them in the refrigerate. In the case of the other bird feeders, they go through the seed in a week. And we are not close by to check them. We do keep seed for them in the garage, so your welcome to fill them.
