Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Many property management companies and vacation homes supply Southport area vacation discount magazines which include money-saving promotions, either offered individually by local companies, or by a relationship between the management company and the vendor itself. These guides provide an excellent start to your rental search.
  • Are you able to adjust your vacation week? The off-peak shoulder seasons generally offer fantastic rates on rental accommodations.
  • Many management companies and owners offer special discounts for active and veteran members of the Armed forces, or returning vacation goers of the same property. Be sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your vacationing crew qualifies for a reduced price.
  • Some rental homes are practically designed to serve particular clients, whether it's oceanside rentals with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center condos with close access to shopping or waterfront homes that have their own boat launching areas. You should prioritize your proximity to the adventures and sights you are most excited about.
  • Give thought to purchasing trip insurance together with your leasing agreement. Trip insurance, which generally add between 1% - 5% of the base rental rate, provides buyers reimbursement of their rental costs for any missed as a consequence of health emergencies or storms, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

General Vacation Rental Tips & Tricks

Many people are shocked to learn just how many rentals are available in Southport. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rental properties available allows them to find an ideal getaway to fit their Southport crew, from low-noise condos to vast event homes with several bedrooms.

The vast majority of rental homes in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local rental management agencies. Owners typically choose management companies to manage promoting and marketing, house cleaning services and routine maintenance.

We have assembled a brief guide to assist you in getting most from your vacation rental experience.

Searching for and reserving the right rental:

Do you think "42 steps to the beach! Sleeps 16. Newly renovated. 5BR, 5BA" is the perfect rental property for your upcoming vacation? Read through this checklist to confirm it fits your needs.

The Sooner, The Better

Southport vacation homes are reserved months (and up to a year) in advance. To assure the best choice of homes, we suggest searching and reserving your Southport rental home 6-Twelve months before your travel dates, whenever feasible. Holiday reunions can be a popular time for family groups to plot their Summer family vacations..

Pick your Place and Vacation Week

Consensus can often be tricky among close relatives, but as soon as this challenging part is complete everything will start to drop in place.

Pick a Size

Establish who is traveling, and how many/what type of bedroom configuration you will need. Consider that many rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the family room. You'll need to figure out what is suitable for the company. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually accessible on the internet. Otherwise, speak to the property manager before you reserve the home.

Decide on Your Budget

Will your selected rental property suit your budget during that prime Summer week? Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends prior to booking a pricey rental. One individual in your company will have to be responsible for getting contributions and accepting responsibility for the entire rental payment at time of reservation.

Its All About Amenities

What home features is your group searching for? Is a pool mandatory?Are you looking for a vacation property with outside dining area? Does the property need to be oceanfront, the downtown area, or near wildlife? Are items like beach chairs, grills, umbrellas, buggies or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental rate? Create a list of priority conveniences to help narrow your search.

Special Issues to consider

Optimal accessibility could make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. Be sure to remember and ask about wheelchair entry, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

Have You Considered Furry Family Members?

Remember to include your companion! While a number of vacation rentals permit family pets, rules and charges vary per rental. Many limitations could eliminate a prospective rental property. Ensure that you study descriptions and contracts carefully. Additional charges may apply when pets are included. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Start the Search

Once the area, travel dates and people are decided, search multiple resources for the best rental selection. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local rental management companies. Local vacation rental management companies take pride in a top-quality rental experience.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to make sure the rental has everything that you need. If it is lacking, the property management company might know of comparable homes that better fit your preferences and budget..

While not true for all rental homes, many property owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Your easiest prospects for a lower rate will be switching to a less desirable week.

Read the Contract

You should know which services are included:

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

Ensure that your quoted fee includes all taxes and fees.

If you must Cancel

Cancellation policies vary with each property. You will likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives you reassurance should catastrophe strike.

Book your Rental Property

When everything seems correct, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. You'll likely need to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Get Contact Details

Put the rental manager's contact info into your phone and wallet for easy access to answers during your stay.

Good job on booking your vacation home! You're on the right path to a phenomenal vacation!

During your Stay

  • Record the overall condition of the rental unit right away. We also suggest promptly getting in touch with the rental home manager with a report of any problems, along with your request for any needed fixes. This will prevent conflicts during checkout.
  • If you have any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the house, house access, swimming pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental manager promptly. A phone call can save several hours of problems.
  • Remember to respect your neighbors. . Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your home.
  • Ask a local. Local residences can frequently point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Ensure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the property locked up while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Always make sure that you've packed everything. Examine drawers, bath cabinetry and wardrobes.
  • Once your things are all out, begin a walk-through of the property to verify no property damage occurred in the course of your stay. If possible, do this walk-out review with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, make sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy yourself? Most vacation rental web sites request testimonials after your stay . Property owners and rental managers will appreciate your positive ratings. If anything went wrong and they didn't correct it in a practical manner, or when the property wasn't as described, you should note that in your comments.

Iterate

Did everybody have a good time? Maybe everything ended up being fantastic and you are all set to reserve the rental home for your next vacation. Otherwise, you have acquired invaluable experience that will help with another search.

Victory Beach Vacations

Visitors who are on the hunt for the postcard-perfect vacation rental in the heart of the Carolina Beach or Kure Beach area will find an enticing selection and plenty of friendly customer service when they rent through Victory Beach Vacations. Based in Carolina Beach in the coastal Cape Fear region, Victory Beach Vacations has more than 100 vacation rentals in all shapes and sizes to ensure that every vacationing family can find their dream home away from home on the beach.   When you book your Cape Fear getaway with Victory Beach Vacations, the fun doesn’t end when you leave the beach, it continues with an array of privately-owned properties outfitted with all of the amenities needed for a fabulous beach vacation.   Jenna Lanier, General Manager, explains that her family first opened the rental and property management business in 2002. At the forefront of Victory Beach operations is Lanier’s mother, Caroline Meeks. Meeks is both the Broker in Charge and co-owner with husband, Buck Meeks, who manages the Field Services team with Lanier’s husband, Scott.   For nearly 20 years, the Victory Beach team has worked tirelessly to establish a network of top-of-the-line rental properties for Cape Fear visitors to enjoy. “As far as our properties go,” explains Lanier, “they are all updated, well-furnished and appointed. “We have always performed post-cleaning inspections and since the pandemic, have put freshly laundered duvets over all of the comforters between rentals.”   Lanier emphasizes how important the guests experience is “we strive to give our guests a relaxing, stress free, memorable vacation.” This emphasis on customer service has led to Victory Beach Vacations having a 4.8 Google rating with over 300 reviews by happy owners and guests.In addition to Victory Beach’s superior sanitation practices, the company offers properties for every type of visitor. Choose from luxury oceanfront houses and condos to more reasonbly priced 2nd row properties with oceanviews. Many properties include pools and hot tubs as well, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and many are dog friendly.   Lanier also notes that all properties are within walking or driving distance to Pleasure Island’s main attractions – Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. The former, as described by Lanier, is the more commercialized of the two destinations and features a boardwalk, outdoor dining options and a plethora of weekly activities including fireworks, live music, amusement park pop-ups, and movies under the stars. Kure Beach offers a more residential feel with its fishing pier, intimate restaurants and family favorite, North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.More water fun awaits, too. “There is a harbor and a canal that feed into the intercoastal. We have several properties on the harbor so guests can bring their boat, kayak, [or jet ski] and travel between islands,” says Lanier.   A stay with Victory Beach Vacations is an annual pilgrimage for most. “A large percentage of guests are previous guests. Some even reserve the same property for the next year as they’re checking out,” Lanier says. “It’s almost like it’s their personal vacation home.”   Even before guests arrive at their vacation destination, the Victory Beach Vacations’ website greets them with a live beach cam and exquisite aerial footage of both Carolina and Kure Beaches.
