Money-saving Tips

  • Find the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Most established tourism bureaus supply guide books with savings for property management companies, restaurants and tours. These guides can provide a good start to your vacation rental search.
  • Are your vacation dates flexible? Shoulder seasons special offer terrific deals.
  • Several property management companies and owners offer price reductions for active duty and veteran members of the US Armed forces, or returning vacation goers to the same property. Make sure to ask property owner to see if your visiting group qualifies for a discounted price.
  • Some homes are particularly suited for specific groups of vacationers. Large event homes are perfect for weddings, wedding receptions and corporate retreats. Some homes appeal to wildlife enthusiasts. Other rentals are situated close to music venues. Be sure to prioritize your proximity to the activities and interesting attractions you are most excited about.
  • Rental companies and individual rental home owners commonly offer customers an opportunity to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually add between 1% - 5% of the basic vacation rental price, provides visitors reimbursement of their rental expenses for any nights missed a result of personal health related emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unanticipated hotel room stay or additional fuel. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens .

How to Book a Rental Home

Many people are surprised to learn how many rentals can be found in their area of interest. With such a wide selection, vacationers are certain to select a vacation home which fits their wishes and spending budget.

The majority of rental homes in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local rental management agencies. Property management companies leverage scale, systems and practical knowledge to provide easy operational administration on behalf of the property owner..

We've assembled a brief guide to assist you in getting most out of your rental experience.

Searching for and reserving the best rental:

Do you think "CN1406: 1 Step Away: Oceanfront, HOT TUB! Private Pool & Beach Access, Elevator" is the perfect rental home for your next getaway? Read through this checklist to confirm it fits your preferences.

The Earlier You Start, The Better The Selection

Southport vacation rentals start booking early. To find the best selection, begin your planning and search Six-12 months in advance of your trip. A lot of visitors plan to start their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve gatherings.

Choose your Place and Travel Week

Agreement can be difficult between close relatives, but as soon as this difficult part is complete everything will begin to drop in place.

Choosing an Appropriately-Sized Vacation rental

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Try to remember that a lot of vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living area. It is important to figure out what is suitable for your group. Generally vacation home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

What Exactly Are You Willing to Spend?

Confirm that "CN1406: 1 Step Away: Oceanfront, HOT TUB! Private Pool & Beach Access, Elevator" suits your price range *during your desired dates*. If multiple individuals or families are sharing the cost, always make sure each group knows their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to pay. Most rental documents require a single person to be responsible for the entire reservation.

Property Features

What home features is the group trying to find? Do you want a rental property with patio dining area? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or amusements? Will the property have bikes and body boards available as part of your stay? Build a list of priority conveniences to help narrow your search.

Accessibility and Special Circumstances

Do a few people in your party have specific needs? If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is needed, include that into your search. Most vacation home listings will include a list of amenities.

Have You Considered Furry Family Members?

Are you or other people in the crew traveling with a pup? Dog guidelines are different at each rental property. Study descriptions thoroughly. Type of pet, size and dog breeds may be controlled. Make certain you read descriptions and contracts carefully. Fees may apply when pets are added. When in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Start your Search

As soon as the place, dates and people are decided, search multiple resources to get the best vacation home selection. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Southport local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local rental management companies pride themselves on a top-quality vacation experience.

Negotiate the Price

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

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Off-peak season offers your greatest chance to negotiate a lower rate.

Read the Total Agreement

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

  • Electric bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the normal charge, visitors will need to pay local taxes when renting "CN1406: 1 Step Away: Oceanfront, HOT TUB! Private Pool & Beach Access, Elevator", along with any other additional fees which may be mandatory depending on their situation, including a dog charge, early check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heat fee for private swimming pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Trip Insurance

Cancellation policies are different with each property. Many rental home agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which ordinarily costs ranges from 1% - 5% of the base rental home rate, provides guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental home costs) for any days missed a result of personal health care emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas.

Reserve your Rental Property

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

Get Contact Information

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

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

During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental unit immediately upon arrival. Contact the property manager immediately to report your findings. This can protect against disputes during check out.
  • When there is any ambiguity about parking, policies of the house, property access, swimming pool operations, etc... we suggest you ask the rental manager immediately. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
  • Don't forget to be a good next-door neighbor. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a trip considerably more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Residents are a terrific source of advice.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the property locked up when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Make sure you've packed all your possessions. Sweep each room in the house for forgotten possessions. Inspect bath rooms, the garage, kitchen cupboards, decks, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your gear might "hide".
  • Once your things are all out, begin a walk-through of the property to confirm no property damage occurred in the course of your stay. If it is possible, do this walk-out inspection with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a good time? Nearly all vacation rental web sites seek reviews after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will appreciate your favorable recommendations. If anything was unacceptable and they didn't fix it in a practical manner, or if the rental home wasn't as described, you should note that as part of your comments.

Use Your Experience

Hold a meeting with your family. Does everybody want to return next year? Hopefully this guide helped you find a fantastic rental unit. Otherwise, you have gained invaluable experience that can help with another search.

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.

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.
