About this Property
“Come hideaway for a while!” 1801 Canal suite D3 is a 2nd floor condo managed by Dale and Salt Water Real Estate and may be just the home away from home you are looking for! “Come hideaway for a while!” is a one-bedroom appealing condo that's just a block from our sandy shores and all the sea sights, sounds, and experiences you are looking for!
Pleasure Island has become a RAPIDLY increasing holiday destination for the entirety of the East coast and beyond for many reasons. Because we are in fact a true island, “overcrowding” isn’t in of itself a colossal issue. Limited parking and available housing will always create a calming “max capacity” that will always give a appealing (and healthy) occupancy level and mood that, despite the “hordes”, will always leave bountiful complimentary space for those looking for a bit more “distancing” and privacy. It’s an AMAZING place to visit, live, and never leave!
The suite is directly on the North End of Carolina Beach and is a long walk or brief drive from downtown Carolina Beach and everything that is has to offer. In Carolina Beach you’ve got the boardwalk, eateries, and local stores of all kinds. If you like adventures, the marina is also there where you can take an offshore fishing trip, diving excursion, or event boat out for a sunset sail. Camping more your thing? Come with the 4X4 and drive (and camp) on the beach at Freeman Park, located on the North End of the island. You can also head down to Kure Beach and fish directly off their fishing pier compete with bait, tackles, and more! The Carolina Beach Lake is close by, hosting a weekly Farmer’s Market every Saturday, FIREWORKS every Thursday, and outdoor summer movies on Sunday’s (on a generous inflatable screen in the middle of the lake!). We welcome you to sit back, relax and appreciate yourselves because that's exactly what the beach is for! * (due to Covid, please be prepared for periodic deviations from our usually scheduled events).
These suites are a mixture of the original “period” construction and old-world glamour, a kiss of shabby-chic modernity, and today’s technology because hey, there’s got to be something for everybody! Each suite has its own distinct traits, quirks, and characteristics. Above all else, it should feel like your “home away from home” while visiting with us on our Island!

Tips to Save Money on your Rental
- Find the tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many official tourism bureaus will send tourism guides with promotions for rental properties, dining and tours. Be on the lookout for these catalogs and discount books, since this allows vacation goers to experience the same terrific activities with a often substantial discounted.
- Wish to stay away from the crowds? The off-peak seasons frequently offer phenomenal rates on weekly rentals.
- Are you a armed forces veteran? Many property management companies offer discounted prices to veterans and active-duty servicemembers. Make sure to confirm with property owner to see if your vacationing gang qualifies for a markdown.
- Some rentals are basically designed to serve specific customers, whether it's soundside rentals with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center condos with close access to night life or waterfront homes that feature private boat launching areas. Make sure to prioritize your proximity to the adventures and landmarks you are most looking forward to.
- Rental companies and individual rental home owners often offer their guests the option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the basic rental rate, provides travellers reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed as a result of personal medical emergencies or hurricanes, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unanticipated motel stay or extra gasoline. Trip insurance can be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .
How to Book a Rental Home
You might be surprised to discover how many rentals are available at your destination. With such a big selection, guests are certain to come across a vacation home that fits their wishes and budget.
Rental homes are usually owner operated or managed by property management companies. Property owners typically select management companies to facilitate online advertising, cleaning and regular maintenance.
Here are some tips and suggestions to help you understand the rental search and booking process.
Searching for and reserving the perfect rental property:
Before you start to book " "Come escape for a while!" 1801 Canal suite D3 ", review our short checklist of factors to consider.
The Earlier, The Better
Southport rental homes start booking very early. Reserving your rental 6-12 months before your travel dates is usually recommended, whenever possible. Many households decide to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year gatherings.
Find your Area and Choose Dates
Begin by deciding which particular area of Southport you'd like to browse, and the approximate travel dates.
Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter
Confirm who is going, and how many/what particular bedroom arrangement you will need. Remember that many rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to figure out what is most appropriate for the party. Most rental home listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.
Make a Spending Limit
Many vacation homes are marketed with a price range. Confirm the rate for your selected week. It may be at the high end of the range. If multiple individuals or family members are sharing the cost, check that each party knows their responsibilities and has approved a maximum they are prepared to contribute. A single individual in your group needs to be in charge of collecting repayments and agreeing to responsibility for the whole rental payment at time of booking.
Its All About Amenities
What home features is your family interested in? Do you primarily desire a vacation rental with a pool, spa tub or volleyball court? Will the property need to be beachfront, the downtown area, or near restaurants? Are sheets included with the rental, or do you need to take your own? Make a list of prioritized "necessities and wishes" from your party to help narrow your search to the perfect property.
Do individual people in your party have special needs? Be sure to remember and ask about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment requirements..
What About Furry Family Members?
Remember to include your furrry friends. While quite a few vacation homes permit animals, guidelines and fees fluctuate per property. Type of pet, size and breeds could be limited. Be sure you study descriptions and contracts carefully. Additional charges may apply when pets are added.
Where to Search
Several websites exist to match clients with rental owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Southport local rental homes" for local property management companies. Local vacation rental management companies take pride in a top-quality rental experience.
Negotiate the Price
When you've identified the rentalhome of your dreams, double check to make sure your trip dates are available.
While not true for all rental properties, many rental owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try getting an additional night. Your easiest chance for a reduced rate is changing to a less desirable week.
Study the Entire Contract
Find out which of the following is included in your quoted rate:
- Utility bills
- WIFI Access
- Telephone service
- Pool and hot tub heating
- Pay Per View Movies
- Daily Cleaning (If Available)
- Trash Pickup (and which day?)
- Maintenance (get a phone number)
- Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
- Parking requirements
In addition to the standard price, travelers will need to pay state taxes when renting " "Come escape for a while!" 1801 Canal suite D3 ", in addition to various other additional fees which might be mandatory based upon their situation, including a dog charge, earlier check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heating fee for private pool usage during the fall or spring months.
Cancellation policies are different with each rental. Rental home management companies and home owners typically offer their guests the option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs between 1% - 5% of the base rental home cost, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any nights missed resulting from personal medical emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unexpected hotel stay or extra gas.
Reserve your Rental Property
When everything looks right, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. Bear in mind that most rental contracts will require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to cover the home owner.
Know Who to Call
Make sure to get the property manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. We recommend storing the contact's information in your smart phone and wallet.
Good luck on reserving your vacation rental! You're on your way to a fantastic vacation!
During your Stay
- Photograph at your arrival. Record the condition of the rental unit immediately upon arrival. If you find damage, or if fixes are required contact the home manager immediately. This may prevent conflicts during check out.
- You could need guidance for a fireplace, TV or spa tub. Contact your home manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save hours of hassle.
- Remember to be a good neighbor. Locals will probably be as friendly to you as you are considerate of them. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your home.
- Ask a local. Local people are a good source of tips. Who better to ask where to get the best chicken wings, have a great date night, or the best areas for wildlife?
- Enjoy your stay! Be sure to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured when you are away, just like you would at home.
- Check to make sure you've packed everything. Inspect drawers, bath cabinets and wardrobes.
- As soon as your things are all out, begin a walk-through of the property to make sure no property damage occurred during your remain. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever possible (this may not be possible).. If the property owner is not available, be sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
- How would you rate your experience? Many rental web sites seek testimonials after your stay . Property owners and rental managers will thank you for positive ratings. If anything went wrong, we suggest being pleasant but completely honest regarding your experience. Top property owners and managers will work hard to correct the problem.
