Extended Overview:
Our enormous kitchen includes stainless steel appliances - a French door refrigerator with ice maker and water in door, a double oven range with a convection oven for quicker preparing times, dishwasher, and microwave. Plates, glasses and cookware are all supplied - enough for two meals without ever having to do dishes! There is also a coffee maker, crock-pot, toaster, blender, waffle iron and griddle to help with all the meal preparation. There is also a separate bar area with mini refrigerator for all those additional beverages, tons of barware, and silverware necessary for making this holiday beverages. For making meals outdoors, we have two gas grilles with included propane, plus a charcoal grille.

We have a sizable dining room table that accommodates 12. We also have supplied a foldable table and chairs that seats 6 more. There are also four stools at the counter, and TV trays for additional dinner seating in the living room.

The main living room has a huge couch, loveseat, and two armchairs and is open to the kitchen and dining area for max. entertaining. There is also a 40" TV and constructed-in fireplace for those chilly evenings.

The main master bedroom has a King Sleighbed, a twin daybed with low trundle, sleeping up to four. This bedroom has private access to the upstairs oceanfront balcony and has a private four piece attached bathroom with a double shower, a two person jetted tub, toilet, and his and her sinks.

The second master bedroom has two queen beds, a twin daybed with a raised trundle, accommodating up to six. This bedroom also has private access to the upstairs oceanfront balcony and an attached private bathroom. This bathroom includes a shower/whirlpool tub combo, sink and toilet.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor of the unit. One bedroom has one queen bed and has a private street-side balcony. The other bedroom includes two bunkbed sets - one is a twin-over-twin, the other is a twin-over-double, sleeping 5. This bedroom also has a private street-side balcony. These bathrooms share the main floor bathroom with a shower/tub combo, toilet and sink.

Upstairs there are two more bedrooms in addition to the two master bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen with a street-side private balcony. The other bedroom has one set of bunkbeds - a twin-over-double, and a single twin, with a private street-side balcony. These bedrooms share a bathroom with a walk-in shower with seating, a toilet, and a sink.

Our home also has a laundry closet with a stack, front loading washer and dryer for you to use. Linen service is included in the price of the unit, and includes bed sheets, bath and beach towels, hand towels, and wash cloths. Kitchen towels are also supplied.

Our unit has a private beach access for those days that you want to enjoy the beach. We are also lucky enough to have a lifeguard post right by our home for added safety when bringing families and those new to the beach. We give beach chairs so there is no need to bring any from home. There are also plenty of sand toys that we've accumulated over the years to play with as well. There is a locked storage closet in the carport to lock up strollers or surfboards, and an outdoor shower and hose to rinse off the sand.

Again, we also have a sizable backyard (very rare on the island) if you want to bring your yard games to enjoy.The backyard is gated, so you an let your children or family dogs and cats roam freely. There is plenty of outdoor space if you are planning a wedding ceremony or reception or reunion event. We can give you a list of vendors from food, to flowers, to seating as we hosted our own 10 Year Anniversary Party here last June.

All of our decks have patio seating, including a dining table set on the main floor oceanfront outdoor space. The upper level outdoor space has numerous pool loungers for sunbathing or stargazing as it is open to the sky.

If it happens to rain during your stay, there is plenty to keep you entertained inside. We have extended cable TV in the living room and master bedrooms. We have a DVD/VCR combo in the living room, and DVD player in the masters with some VHS and DVDs supplied. There is also secure wireless internet throughout the unit, plus plenty of books, board games, and puzzles to pass the time.

To make your stay hassle complimentary, no parking passes are mandatory (so no towing!) and there is enough parking for 5 cars, including two covered spaces. There are also electrical outlets in the carport area if you would like to bring or rent a golf cart during your stay (they are street legal in Carolina Beach.)

We are roughly 1.5 miles from the boardwalk area, where there are eateries and shopping galore, an arcade and amusement rides during the summertime. Also every Thursday nighttime there are fireworks on the beach which you can enjoy down by the boardwalk or from the beach in front of our unit. Sunday nights there is a family movie at the lake (about 2 miles away). We are also two blocks from the fishing pier where you can buy bait and licenses, and only 4 blocks from the access to Freeman 4x4 Park.

This is a flexible check-in day rental, but if you are interested in renting less than a week, please contact us as we can give you with nightly prices.

Finally the owners live two homes down - so if you encounter any holiday hiccups they will be there personally to get your holiday back on track. They have also been Islanders since 2007, so they know a lot of great places to go, things to do, and eateries to try.

Wallet-Friendly Tips

  • Many rental owners and vacation rental houses supply Southport area vacation discount magazines which feature money-saving offers, either offered independently by merchants, or via a relationship between the property manager and the local itself. Be on the lookout for these books and promotional books, since this allows travelers to enjoy those terrific attractions at a frequently significantly discounted.
  • Flexible about when you might vacation? Off-season rates are usually a fraction of high fees.
  • Are you a military veteran? Several management companies offer price cuts to vets and active-duty forces. Make sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your vacationing group is eligible for a rate reduction.
  • Some properties are primarily designed for specific types of visitors. Large event homes are perfect for weddings, wedding receptions and corporate meetings. Some properties appeal to wildlife enthusiasts. Other properties are situated close to music venues. If there's a particular Southport atteaction which you just love, be on the lookout for rentals that cater especially to your needs.
  • Think about obtaining trip insurance along with your leasing agreement. Trip insurance, which generally add between 1% - 5% of the base term rate, provides visitors reimbursement of their trip expenses for any days missed as a result of health emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unexpected hotel room stay or extra gas.

The Rental Process

Some people are surprised to discover the number of rental homes are offered in Southport. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rental properties available allows them to find an suitable retreat to fit their Southport crew, from quiet condominiums to giant event homes with several bedrooms.

Vacation homes are usually owner operated or managed by property management companies. Vacation home management companies leverage scale, systems and experience to provide painless operational management on behalf of the owner..

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

Finding and reserving the perfect rental property:

Before you start to book "Oceanfront Family/Pet-Friendly Unit for Weddings/Reunions - Private Beach Access", go through our brief list of points to consider.

The Earlier You Begin, The Better The Selection

Southport rental homes start booking early. To find the best selection, start your planning and search Six-Twelve months prior to your vacation. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and reserve your rental..

Choose your Area and Vacation Week

Quite often, the hardest portion of scheduling your trip is figuring out where to go, and when. After the big decisions are tackled, the rest will be much easier.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Remember that that most vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the family room. You'll need to determine what is acceptable for the family. Most vacation home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

Commit to a Budget

Most vacation rentals are advertised with a price range. Confirm the rate for your chosen week. It might be at the top end of the range. If multiple individuals or loved ones are sharing the cost, confirm that each party understands their obligations and has approved a maximum they are prepared to chip in. Generally speaking, a single member of the group will be in charge of making the complete reservation and recovering each person's share.

Compose a list of "Wants" and "Necessities"

What amenities is your family trying to find? Do you primarily want a rental with a swimming pool, spa tub or volleyball court? Do you wish to be far from the crowds, or close to civilization? Are sheet sets included with the rental, or do you need to take your own? Create a list of priority amenities to guide filter your search.

Accessability

Commonly the senior generation has trouble with stairs. Be sure to remember and ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Take the Dog

Make sure you include your companion! Animals are welcome at a number of rental properties, but guidelines differ. Type of pet, size and breeds could be restricted. Examine your contract carefully! Extra fees may apply when pets are included. Ask questions *well before* you book!

Start the Search

. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local rental home management companies. Local companies typically have a unique selection of vacation rentals daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to ensure that the home has everything you need. If something is missing, the rental management company might know of comparable properties that suit your style and budget..

While not true for all rental properties, many rental owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season week, try getting an extra night. Negotiating rates is more effective through the off-season when many homes sit empty.

Read the Total Contract

You will have to know which services are included:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

In addition to the regular rate, guests have to pay state taxes when booking "Oceanfront Family/Pet-Friendly Unit for Weddings/Reunions - Private Beach Access", in addition to any other additional fees which might be required based upon their circumstances, including a pet fee, early check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heat fee for private swimming pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

Cancelling your Rental

Cancellation policies are different for each rental. You will likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of your base rental price, provides guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental home costs) for any nights missed due to personal health emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas.

Book It

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

Get Contact Information

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

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your visit!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental property immediately upon arrival. We also advise immediately calling the property manager with a report of any damage, along with your request for any necessary fixes. If there is a difference of opinion about liability later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts could be helpful.
  • Ask questions. If you have any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the house, condo access, pool operations, etc... we suggest you ask the property manager promptly. A brief phone call prevents many problems.
  • Please be respectful of the neighborhood. Frequently, adjacent properties are filled by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a vacation a little more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Locals can frequently point you in the right direction.
  • Be sure to protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the vacation home secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Clean up a lttle bit. Even if you're having to pay a cleaning fee, The rental needs to be in sound condition. Sinks brimming with dishes, substantial sand on the floors and sticky messes should really be remedied before leaving.
  • Make sure to walk through the rental one final time and check for damage. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever feasible (this may not be possible).. If the property owner is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your rental? Most rental home management companies and rental home sites allow renters to give feedback. If the property and/or property manager was great, they'll appreciate your recommendations. If anything went wrong, we suggest being pleasant but straightforward in regards to your rental experience. Top property owners and managers will try hard to rectify the issue.

Learn from your Experience

Hold a debrief with the members of your group. Did they love their vacation? If everything was outstanding, next year's trip planning is going to be painless. Maybe the rental wasn't ideal, and you will better recognize how to filter your search for the next trip.
