Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Find the official tourism bureau in the area you want to travel. Many established tourism bureaus supply guides with special packages for property management companies, dining and activities. Be on the lookout for these catalogs and coupon books, because this allows vacation goers to experience the very same wonderful activities at a quite often considerable discounted.
  • Prefer to steer clear of the crowds of people? Off-peak times offer up significant bargains.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for discounts. Be sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your visiting gang is eligible for a reduction.
  • Some rental homes are basically designed to serve particular guests, whether it is downtown homes with pier passes, city-center condos with close access to restaurants or waterfront homes that feature private jetski launching areas. If there's a particular Southport atteaction you simply love, search for rentals that cater especially to your needs.
  • Rental companies and individual rental owners typically offer guests the chance to obtain trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic vacation rental rate, provides vacationers reimbursement of their trip expenses for any nights missed as a consequence of health emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unanticipated hotel room stay or additional fuel. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

How to Book a Vacation Home

Newcomers are likely to be surprised at the number and wide selection of short-term rentals available in the Southport area. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of vacation homes available allows them to find an ideal retreat to fit their Southport group, from peaceful condominiums to giant event homes with several bedrooms.

Rental homes are often owner operated or managed by property management companies. Rental owners typically select management companies to facilitate marketing and advertising, cleaning and maintenance.

We've assembled a short guide to assist you in getting most from your rental experience.

Finding and booking the right rental home:

Before you start to book "CENTRALLY LOCATED 5 BEDROOM / 4 BATH HOUSE", examine our short list of points to consider.

Start Your Search Early

Southport rentals start booking very early. Booking your rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates is recommended, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation rental home..

Find your Spot and Establish Dates

Consensus can be difficult between loved ones, but once this challenging part is finished everything will quickly slide in place.

Just How Much Vacation rental Do You Actually Need?

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Be mindful that many rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to determine what is acceptable for the party. Generally vacation home listings will outline each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Stay on a Budget

The majority of rentals are marketed with a cost range. Determine the price for your desired stay. It may be at the top end of the range. Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from company before booking a pricey rental property. In most cases, a single person in the group will be liable for making the whole reservation and collecting each party's share.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What amenities is your family interested in? Are you looking for a rental property with outside lounge? Does the property need to be oceanfront, the downtown area, or in close proximity to night life? Does the home have bikes and body boards for use during your stay? Make a list of prioritized "needs and wishes" from your party to help narrow your search to the most suitable home.

Special Criteria

Do certain members of your crew have specialized needs? Make certain to remember and ask about wheelchair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment requirements..

Your Puppy Deserves a Vacation, Too

Remember to include your best friend! Dog policies are different at each rental property. Study descriptions thoroughly. A number of restrictions could dismiss a prospective rental home. Examine your contract carefully! Additional fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement.

It Is Time to Search

Several internet resources exist to match renters with rental owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rental homes" for local rental home management companies. Local property management companies take pride in an exceptional vacation experience.

Negotiate

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

While not true for all rental homes, many owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable stay, try asking for an extra night. Off-peak season offers your greatest opportunity to make a deal for a reduced rate.

Read the Total Agreement

Read the full contract and make certain you are aware who is liable for:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the regular charge, vacationers will need to pay local taxes when renting "CENTRALLY LOCATED 5 BEDROOM / 4 BATH HOUSE", in addition to any other additional fees which might be required depending on their circumstances, including a pet charge, earlier check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heating fee for private swimming pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Do you know the Cancellation Policy?

Cancellation policies are different with each rental. Vacation home management companies and individual property owners commonly offer their clients the choice to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which ordinarily costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of your base rental price, provides vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any nights missed resulting from personal health emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unforeseen hotel stay or additional gas.

Complete the Booking

As soon as you feel you've identified "the one", start the reservation process. You'll probably be required to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Where to Get Help

Put the rental manager's contact info into your smart phone and wallet for quick access to answers during your trip.

Congrats! All that is left is making the most of your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Record the overall condition of the rental home right away. If you discover wear and tear, or if repairs are needed get in touch with the rental manager immediately.
  • If there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, property access, swimming pool functions, etc... we advise you ask the rental home manager immediately. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
  • Be considerate of the local community. Often, surrounding properties are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking restrictions can make a stay a little more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Local people can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Don't forget to protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation rental locked up while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Check Out Time

  • Make sure you've packed everything. Inspect drawers, bath cupboards and wardrobes.
  • When everything is out, do a walk-through of the rental to be certain no property damage occurred in the course of your remain. 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 have a blast? Most rental management companies and rental websites make it easy for travellers to give feedback. If the rental and/or property manager was top notch, they'll appreciate your recommendations. If something went wrong, we recommend being kind but straightforward regarding your stay. Top owners and managers will try very hard to solve the problem.

Learn and Improve

Hold a debrief with your family. Did everyone have a blast? Ideally everything turned out to be fantastic and you are ready to reserve the same rental home for next year. If not, you've acquired valuable experience to aid with your next 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.
