Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Find the official tourism bureau where you want to vacation. Most tourism bureaus will send promotional guides with savings for rental home management companies, dining and tours. Be on the lookout for these magazines and discount books, as this allows visitors to discover those fantastic activities at a possibly substantial discounted.
  • Flexible about when you might visit? Off-peak times provide considerable discounts.
  • Many rental companies and owners offer savings for active and veteran men and women of the U.S. Armed forces, or returning travelers of the same rental. Make sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your travelling crew qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Some homes are primarily designed for specific types of guests. Large event homes are best for weddings, wedding receptions and corporate retreats. Some rentals cater to wildlife enthusiasts. Other rentals are positioned close to nightlife. If there's a certain Southport activity that you just love, search for properties that cater especially to your needs.
  • Property management companies and individual rental home owners commonly offer their guests an option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental rate, provides guests reimbursement of their rental costs for any nights missed as a result of health related emergencies or hurricanes, in addition to ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unforeseen hotel room stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens .

How to Book a Rental Home

You might be surprised to find out just how many rentals are available at your destination. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of worldwide search sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Vacation homes are commonly owner operated or managed by rental management companies. For owners not directly involved with the management of their rental, management companies are critical in helping vacationers with making reservations, checking-in, house cleaning, and any repairs and maintenance issues that may occur.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have discovered a number of tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting rental homes, however most newcomers will be happy to find that many of these "tricks" are in plain sight, if you understand where they should search.

Finding and booking the right rental:

Before you book "ON THE WATER! Sound side condo with a view of the ocean!", read through our short list of considerations.

The Earlier You Start, The Better The Choices

Southport rental homes start booking very early. Reserving your vacation property 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, when possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and reserve your vacation home..

Select a Community and Time

Begin by deciding which particular area of Southport you'd like to browse, and the approximate dates you'll be vacationing.

How Many Beds?

How many family members are planning to share your trip? Consider that many vacation rentals list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living area. You will need to figure out what is suitable for the company. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available on the internet. If not, email or call the property manager before you book.

What Exactly Are You Prepared to Shell out?

Most rentals are advertised with a cost range. Determine the cost for your desired week. It may be at the high end of the range. If multiple groups or loved ones are sharing the cost, make sure everyone understands their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to pay. One member of your family must be given the task of gathering contributions and acknowledging responsibility for the entire rental fee at time of reservation.

Let's Talk Amenities

What home features is your family interested in? Is a pool mandatory?Are you looking for a rental with open-air dining area? Are you more interested in a natural landscape or night life? Are extras like beach chairs, grills, umbrellas, beach carts or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental property charge? Gather a list of prioritized "needs and wishes" from your company to help narrow your search to the most appropriate home.

Accessability

Do individual people in your party have specialized needs? Make certain to remember and inquire about wheelchair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Go ahead and Take the Dog

Be sure to include your best friend! Animal friends are welcome at many vacation rentals, but policies differ. Type of pet, size and dog breeds might be limited. Make sure you read descriptions and contracts carefully. Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. When in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Searching the Internet

Several websites exist to match guests with rental home owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local vacation homes" for local rental home management companies. Local agencies generally have a unique assortment of rental properties daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

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

Although not true for all rental properties, many property owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season week, try getting an extra night. Negotiating rates is most effective during the off-peak season when many rental homes sit vacant.

Read the Entire Agreement

You will want to know which services are included:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Telephone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Space

Make sure your price includes all taxes and fees.

Trip Insurance

Cancellation policies are different for each vacation rental. Vacation home management companies and individual property owners often offer their guests the option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergencies and weather events, It provides relief should tragedy strike.

Book It

When you think you've found "the one", start the booking process. Keep in mind that most rental agreements will require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to protect the rental owner.

Know Who to Call

Put the property manager's contact information into your phone and wallet for convenient access to answers throughout your stay.

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

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Take notes of any problems soon after you arrive. Get in touch with the rental manager right away to report your findings. This can prevent disputes during checkout.
  • You might need guidance for a fireplace, TV or hot tub. Get in touch with your property manager. They are there to help. A quick phone call helps prevent many problems.
  • Please be respectful of the neighborhood. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a vacation a lot more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Local people can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best spots for wildlife?
  • Make sure that you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental home secured when you are away, just like you would at home.

Checking Out

  • Check to make sure you've packed all of your possessions. Sweep each room in the home for left-behind possessions. Inspect bathrooms, the garage, cabinets, porches, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make sure to walk through the rental one last time and check for damages. Whenever possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property manager present. If the property manager is not available, make sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your vacation? Many rental websites request comments after your stay . Owners and rental managers will thank you for favorable critiques. If something was wrong and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you should make it a point as part of your review.

Learn and Improve

Did everybody have a great time? With a little luck everything turned out to be wonderful and you're excited to reserve the rental home for next year. If the rental property wasn't quite right, and you will better recognize how to improve your search next time.

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.
