Money Saving Strategies

  • Many property owners and vacation houses provide Southport area promotional books which feature money-saving promotions, either offered individually by merchants, or via a partnership between the property manager and the local vendor itself. Keep an eye out for these publications and coupon books, since this allows travelers to enjoy the same great attractions with a generally considerable discounted.
  • Willing to modify your trip dates? Shoulder seasons offer terrific deals.
  • Many rental companies and owners offer discounts for active and veteran men and women of the US Armed forces, or repeat individuals to the same property. Make sure to ask vacation rental company to see if your travelling crew qualifies for a rate reduction.
  • Some homes are primarily suited for specific types of travellers. Event homes are great for weddings, wedding receptions and corporate retreats. Some homes cater to wildlife enthusiasts. Other properties are situated close to music venues. If there's a certain Southport activity which you just love, be on the lookout for rentals that cater especially to you.
  • Property management companies and individual property owners commonly offer clients the option to purchase trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which usually add between 1% - 5% of the basic stay rate, offers visitors reimbursement of their travel expenses for any days missed as a consequence of personal medical-related emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unforeseen hotel room stay or additional gas. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

How to Book a Vacation Home

You may be pleasantly surprised to uncover how many rentals are available at your destination. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of worldwide research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

The majority of vacation homes in Southport are privately operated and many are represented by experienced local property management agencies. Rental owners frequently choose management companies to assist with advertising and marketing, house cleaning and routine maintenance.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have discovered a number of tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting rental homes, however many beginners will be happy to learn that many of these "tricks" are in plain sight, if you know how to look.

How to find and reserve a great rental home:

Do you think "Awesome Ocean Views, Top Floor Corner w/ Pool, Elevator, Direct Beach Access" is the best rental property for your upcoming getaway? Browse through this checklist to confirm it fits your preferences.

Search Early and Often

Southport rental homes are reserved months (and up to a year) in advance. To ensure the most desirable selection of properties, we advise searching and reserving your Southport rental Six-12 months before your travel dates, whenever you can. Holiday gatherings can be a popular time for family groups to plan their Summer holiday escapes..

Find your Spot and Determine Dates

Agreement can often be difficult between members of the family, but the moment this challenging part is finished everything will start to slide in place.

Just How Many Beds?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Be mindful that most rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for the company. Most rental home listings will outline each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Stick to a Budget

Will your favorite rental suit your budget during that prime Summer week? Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends before reserving an expensive rental. A single individual in your company needs to be responsible for collecting repayments and acknowledging responsibility for the complete rental fee at time of booking.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What property features is your group trying to find? Is a screened porch a requirement? Are you more interested in wildlife or amusements? Are mattress sheets included with the rental agreement, or will you need to bring your own? Make a list of "necessities and wishes" from your party to help narrow your search to the most appropriate property.

Special Conditions

Occasionally the older generation has challenges with stairways. Make sure that you remember and inquire about wheelchair entry, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

Go ahead and Take the Dog

Make sure you include your furrry friends. Animal policies are different at each rental. Read descriptions thoroughly. You'll want to study descriptions and contracts carefully. Additional fees or costs may be applied to your agreement.

Its Time to Search

After the location, time and family members are decided, search multiple sources for the greatest rental home selection. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local rental home management companies. Local vacation rental management companies pride themselves on a top-quality vacation experience.

Negotiate

When you have located the rentalhome of your dreams, check to confirm your trip dates are available.

While not true for all rental properties, many owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Off-peak weeks will likely be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Read the Total Agreement

Find out which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Utilities
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

Get a total that incorporates state taxes, pet and other additional fees.

Cancelling your Rental

Cancellation policies are different with each vacation rental. Many rental home agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs between 1% - 5% of your standard vacation rental price, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any nights missed due to personal medical-related emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas.

Complete the Reservation

After you feel you've found "the one", start the reservation process. You'll likely have to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

Be sure to get the manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. We recommend storing the contact's information in your smart phone and wallet.

Good job on booking your rental! You're on your way to a fantastic vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Take notes of any damage as soon as you arrive. Contact the rental manager right away to report your findings.
  • Ask questions. Should there be any ambiguity about parking, policies of the property, house access, pool functions, etc... we advise you ask the rental home manager promptly. A quick phone call avoids many headaches.
  • Make sure to be a good next-door neighbor. Residents more often than not live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a terrific source of advice.
  • Enjoy your stay! Ensure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental locked up when you are away, just like you would at home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Clean up a little bit. Although you're spending money on a house cleaning fee, The property really should be in very good condition. Kitchen sinks filled with pots and pans, excessive beach sand on the floor and sticky messes should really be remedied before leaving.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one last time and look for property damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager wherever possible (this may not be possible).. If the property owner is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you feel about your choice? Nearly all rental sites seek testimonials after your stay is complete. Property owners and rental managers will appreciate your favorable critiques. If something went wrong, we advise being understanding but completely honest with regards to stay. Top property owners and managers will try very hard to fix the problem.

Use Your Experience

How did they like the rental home? We hope this guide helped you find a terrific rental. If the rental property wasn't quite right, and you will better recognize how to filter your search for the next vacation.

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.

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.
