Some people are surprised to discover how many rental properties are located 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 ideal getaway to suit their Southport gang, from relaxing condos to large event homes with several bedrooms.

Virtually all rental properties in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by established local property management agencies. Owners frequently select management companies to facilitate online advertising, housekeeping services and maintenance.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have figured out a few tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting rental properties, however many newcomers will be happy to know that several "tricks" are in plain sight, if you know where to look.

How to find and book the right rental home:

Do you believe "Fantastic Waterfront House w/Patio, Free WiFi, Private Washer/Dryer, Central AC" is the perfect vacation property for your upcoming vacation? Read through this checklist to ensure it fits your preferences.

Start Your Search Early

Like many popular vacation spots, In Southport the best rentals are booked early. To find the best selection, start your planning and search Six-12 months prior to a trip. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your vacation rental home..

Choose your Place and Travel Week

Agreement can be tricky between members of the family, but the moment this challenging part is finished everything will start to slide in place.

Selecting an Adequately-Sized Rental

How many family members are joining your vacation? Be mindful that a lot of properties list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to determine what is acceptable for the party. Most rental home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Establish Your Budget

Will your chosen rental fit your budget during that prime Summer week? If several individuals or family members are sharing the cost, make sure each group knows their obligation and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to pay. A single member of your company will need to be given the task of collecting payments and accepting responsibility for the entire rental price at time of booking.

Its All About Amenities

What home features is the group interested in? Is a screened-in deck a requirement? Would you like to be away from it all, or near a city setting? Are linens included with the rental, or do you need to bring your own? Make a list of prioritized "necessities and preferences" from your party to help filter your search to the most suitable home.

Special Issues

Oftentimes the elder generation has problems with staircases. Ensure that you remember and inquire about wheelchair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Fido Approved

Make sure to include your furrry friends. Although a number of vacation homes allow furry friends, guidelines and charges vary per property. Many limitations might eliminate a potential rental. Study your contract thoroughly! Charges may apply when pets are added.

Start the Search

Many websites exist to match clients with rental home owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local vacation rentals" for local property management companies. Local vacation home management companies proudly offer a first-class vacation experience.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to ensure the vacation rental has everything that you need. If it is something is missing, the home management company might know of very similar homes that fit your style and budget..

Although not true for all rental homes, many property owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Negotiating rates is most effective during the off-peak season when many homes sit empty.

Study The Agreement

It is advisable to know which services are included:

  • Utilities
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

Make sure your price includes all state taxes and fees.

Cancellation Policies

Be sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy before booking. Many rental property agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance safeguards the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives you comfort should catastrophe strike.

Complete the Reservation

When everything seems right, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. Bear in mind that most rental agreements will require a significant rental down payment and/or security deposit to protect the rental owner.

Know Who to Call

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

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

During your Stay

  • Photograph on your arrival. Take notes of any wear and tear as soon as you arrive. If you find problems, or if fixes are needed contact the rental manager right away. This may protect against disputes during checkout.
  • If you have any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, house access, pool operations, etc... we advise you ask the rental home manager immediately. A phone call can save hours of hassle.
  • Don't forget to be a good neighbor. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a vacation much more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Natives are a good source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to order the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best spots for wildlife?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the home secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • Double-check every space of the rental property to ensure that you've gathered all belongings.
  • Be sure to walk through the rental one final time and check for property damage. Whenever possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your vacation? Many rental home management companies and rental home sites permit renters to give reviews. If your property and/or property manager was excellent, they'll appreciate your compliments. If anything went wrong and they didn't correct it in a practical manner, or when the property wasn't as described, you'll want to note that as part of your critique.

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.
