We were very pleased with our stay at Christie's place. She was a great host and provided us with the privacy and comfort that we were hoping for. She was always just a text away if we needed her. Excellent accommodations. The room was very cozy and comfortable. The location was awesome. All of downtown New Bern was walking distance (5-10 minutes) from the home. New Bern downtown is a great experience. We will definitely return in the future.

Thank you so very much for helping make our daughter and son-in-law's anniversary special. You went the extra mile to see they were comfortable, felt welcome and knew the places to go in New Bern. Our daughter commented on your nice sheets and the privacy their room provided. Christie, You are perfect to host a B&B when you have your social skills. The location our daughter said was perfect as it was within walking distance to everything they wanted.

This private room was everything we needed plus more for our stay in New Bern. There were so many intricate details that put it over the top with interiors and fixtures. The house is a 5 minute walk to the heart of downtown and many great eateries. There is also a great outdoor seating area to have a drink and relax. I would highly recommend staying there if you are in New Bern!

Hi! I'm Christie. We moved to New Bern, NC to be closer to the coast. It is not the first time we lived on the coast. Savannah Georgia was our home for nearly 7 years.

Coast living is unique. The people just seem happier here. Please come share our home in a style that gives you the grace and charm of a southern coastal community and gives you the freedom to come and go as you wish, on your terms. We enjoy great travel, great books, great movies, great food, and friends.

My style of travel is comfort, style, grace and being able to move comfortably from one place to another. I prefer clean spaces with the ability to move as freely as possible.

My motto in life is LIVE LIFE LARGE..........and enjoy each moment.
