Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Many management companies and vacation rental homes supply Southport area traveller discount catalogs which feature offers, either offered independently by local companies, or by a partnership between the management company and the local merchant itself. These guides can provide an excellent start to your rental home search.
  • Flexible about when you can take a trip? Shoulder seasons feature phenomenal promotions.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be eligible for special discounts. Make sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your visiting gang qualifies for a rate reduction.
  • Some rentals are basically catered to specific travelers, whether it is soundside units with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center homes with nearby access to night life or waterfront homes that have their own kiteboarding launching areas. If there's a specific Southport activity that you love, keep an eye out for rental properties that cater especially to you.
  • Give thought to obtaining trip insurance with your rental contract. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you between 1% - 5% of the basic rental cost, provides visitors reimbursement of their travel costs for any missed a result of health-related emergencies or weather, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unforeseen motel stay or additional gas. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens .

The Rental Process

Many people are shocked to learn how many vacation rentals are available in their area of interest. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rental homes available allows them to find an suitable retreat to accommodate their Southport gang, from tranquil condos to grand event homes with several bedrooms.

The vast majority of rentals in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local rental management companies. Property management companies are well-liked by property owners because they manage the internet marketing and operations..

Below are some tips and techniques to help you understand the rental home search and reservation process.

Where to find and book the best rental home:

Do you believe "~Carolina Tides~ Oak Island, Beach View, Fishing Pier, Pool & Hot Tub (seasonal)" is the perfect vacation property for your next visit? Browse through this checklist to confirm it fits all of your needs.

Begin Your Search Early

Southport rentals start booking early. To guarantee the greatest selection of rental homes, we advise searching and reserving your Southport rental home Six-12 months in advance, whenever possible. Many visitors decide to begin their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year gatherings.

Find your Spot and Confirm Dates

Sometimes, the toughest portion of preparing for your trip is deciding on where to search, and when. After the big decisions are resolved, the rest is more straightforward.

Just How Many Bedrooms?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Remember that many homes list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the family room. You'll need to determine what is suitable for the group. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available on the internet. If not, communicate with the property manager before you reserve the home.

Commit to a Budget

Make sure "~Carolina Tides~ Oak Island, Beach View, Fishing Pier, Pool & Hot Tub (seasonal)" suits your budget *during your desired week*. Make sure to get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends before reserving an expensive rental property. Most of the time, one member of the group will be in charge of making the complete reservation and collecting each family member's share.

Let's Talk Amenities

What property features is the family interested in? Do you just want a vacation home with a swimming pool, spa or volleyball court? Are you more interested in wildlife or night life? Will the rental have bikes and body boards available for use as part of your stay? Make a list of "needs and wants" from your group to help narrow your search to the most appropriate property.

Accessability

Suitable access could make or break a visit for the less-mobile. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are necessary, include that into your search. Nearly all vacation home listings include a list of amenities.

What About Furry Family Members?

Make sure to include your pets. While a number of rentals permit household pets, guidelines and charges fluctuate per rental. Type of animal, size and dog breeds may be controlled. Study your contract very carefully! Additional fees or costs may be applied to your contract. If in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Best places to Search

As soon as the location, dates and family members are decided, search multiple resources for the very best rental selection. In combination 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 an exceptional rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

When you have identified your dream rental, make sure your vacation dates are available.

Some rental home owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season stay, try getting an extra night. Your best potential for a lower rate will be switching to an off-season week.

Study the Contract

Read the whole contract and be sure you fully understand who is liable for:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

Be sure that your quoted fee includes all taxes and fees.

Cancellations Happen

Make sure you understand the cancellation policy before reserving. Rental home management companies and individual rental owners typically offer their guests the choice to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance safeguards the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives comfort should tragedy strike.

Reserve your Vacation Property

When everything looks correct, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. You will probably have to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Where to Get Help

Make sure to get the manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. We suggest saving the contact's details in your phone and wallet.

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph on your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental unit right away. Call the rental manager immediately to report your findings. If there is a difference of opinion about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be very helpful.
  • You may need instructions for a fireplace, Television or hot tub. Call your home manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save hours of hassle.
  • Remember to be a good next-door neighbor. Often, nearby households are lived in by permanent locals. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a visit significantly more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Locals can often point you in the right direction.
  • Make certain to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the vacation rental locked up when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Checking Out

  • Make sure you've packed all your personal belongings. Sweep each room in the home for forgotten possessions. Check bathrooms, the garage, cabinets, outdoor patios, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your gear might "hide".
  • When your things are all out, do a walk-through of the property to confirm no property damage occurred in the course of your stay. If you can, do this walk-out review with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your rental home? Virtually all rental property web sites ask for feedback after your stay . Owners and property managers will thank you for positive critiques. If something went wrong, we suggest being understanding but straightforward in regards to your experience. Top property owners and managers will try very hard to fix the issue.

Learn from your Experience

Does everyone want to go back? Hopefully this guide steered you to a great rental unit. If not, you've acquired invaluable rental search experience to help with the next search.

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.
