Money Saving Strategies

  • Many property management companies and vacation houses supply Southport area travel guides which include money-saving deals, either offered independently by vendors, or utilizing a relationship between the property manager and the vendor itself. Look for these books and coupon books, since this allows vacation goers to discover the very same terrific attractions with a frequently significantly discounted.
  • Are your trip dates flexible? Off-season rates are usually a fraction of peak fees.
  • Plenty of property management companies and owners offer price reductions for active and veteran members of the U.S. Military, or repeat travelers of the same property. Make sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your travelling crew qualifies for a reduction.
  • Some rental homes are practically designed to serve particular vacationers, whether it is soundside units with weekly pier passes, city-center homes with close access to restaurants or waterfront homes that have their own boat launching areas. Be sure to prioritize your proximity to the adventures and places of interest you are most interested in.
  • Consider purchasing trip insurance together with your leasing agreement. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental rate, provides buyers reimbursement of their vacation costs for any nights missed a result of health related emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unexpected motel stay or additional gasoline. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs (heaven forbid!).

How to Book a Rental Home

You may be surprised to discover just how many rental homes are available at your destination. With such a big selection, vacationers are certain to find a property that matches their wishes and spending plan.

Nearly all vacation rentals in Southport are privately operated and many are represented by well-known local rental management agencies. Property management companies are liked by rental owners because they coordinate the marketing and operations..

Seasoned Southport vacationers have identified a few tips and tricks over the years with regards to renting vacation rentals, however most novices will be delighted to learn that many of these "methods" are in plain sight, if you recognize where they should search.

Searching for and booking the best rental home:

Before you start to book "Bella's Island Escape", review our brief list of things to consider.

The Sooner, The Better

Like many popular hot spots, In Southport the best rentals are booked very early. Reserving your vacation property 6-12 months in advance is highly recommended, when possible. Holiday reunions can be a popular time for family groups to plot their Summer family vacations..

Find your Spot and Identify Dates

Begin by figuring out which specific area of Southport you would like to visit, and the choose trip dates.

Pick a Size

How many family members are joining your getaway? Consider that most properties list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living area. It is important to figure out what is most appropriate for your group. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available on the internet. Otherwise, email or call the property owner before you reserve the home.

Make a Spending Limit

Check to make sure "Bella's Island Escape" suits your budget *during your desired dates*. If multiple individuals or loved ones are sharing the cost, check that each group knows their obligation and has approved a maximum they are willing to pay. Generally speaking, just one member of the group will be liable for making the complete reservation and recovering each family member's share.

Its All About Amenities

What home features is the group trying to find? Do you simply want a vacation rental with a swimming pool, spa or volleyball court? Do you wish to be away from it all, or near civilization? Are items like beach chairs, barbecue grills, umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included in your rental home rate? Make a list of priority amenities to guide filter your search.

Accessibility and Special Considerations

Occasionally the elder generation has problems with stairways. Make sure that you remember and ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Make sure to include your furry family members. Animal friends are welcome at many vacation homes, but guidelines differ. Be sure to read agreements and contracts carefully. Additional fees or costs may be applied to your contract.

Its Time to Search

After the location, time and people are decided, search multiple sources to get the best vacation rental selection. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local vacation homes" for local rental home management companies. Local agencies often have an exclusive selection of rental homes daily and weekly.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to be sure the rental has everything that you need. If lacking, the vacation rental management company may know of very similar properties that better fit your desires and budget..

Although not true for all rental homes, many owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season stay, try asking for an additional night. The off-season offers your greatest opportunity to negotiate a lower rate.

Read The Contract

Read the full contract and be sure you understand who is responsible for:

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Telephone service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

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

Cancellation Policies

Cancellation policies are different for each rental. You will probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergencies and weather events, It provides reassurance should disaster strike.

Book your Vacation Property

After you believe you've found "the one", start the booking process. Bear in mind that most rental contracts will require a considerable rental down payment and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation home owner.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

Put the property manager's contact info into your cell phone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your trip.

Congratulations! All that is left is making the most of your visit!

During your Stay

  • To ensure no damages are associated with your stay, create a record of any problem areas of the rental. Contact the property manager right away to report your findings. This will protect against conflicts during check out.
  • When there's any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the property, condo access, swimming pool operation, etc... we recommend you ask the rental manager immediately. A brief phone call prevents many problems.
  • Remember to respect your neighbors. Locals should be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a vacation a little more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Residents are a fantastic source of recommendations.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation home locked up when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Clean up a little bit. Even though you're paying a house cleaning fee, The property should really be in good condition. Sinks full of dishes, substantial sand on the floors and sticky messes should really be addressed before leaving.
  • Make sure to walk through the rental one last time and look for damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager wherever possible (this isn't always the case).. If the property owner is not available, make certain to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you rate your experience? Most rental management company sites seek testimonials after your stay is complete. Rental owners and property managers will thank you for favorable recommendations. If anything was unsatisfactory and they failed to fix it in a practical manner, or when the property wasn't as described, you may want to make it a point in your feedback.

Learn from your Stay

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.
