Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Many rental managers and rental homes supply Southport area printed travel guides which include coupons, either offered independently by local companies, or by a relationship between the property manager and the local business itself. These guides provide a good start to your rental search.
  • Willing to switch your travel dates? Shoulder seasons special offer phenomenal savings.
  • A number of management companies and owners offer price reductions for active and veteran members of the US Military, or repeat visitors to the same rental home. Be sure to ask vacation rental company to see if your visiting gang qualifies for a rate reduction.
  • Is there a particular experience that you are most getting excited about during your stay? If there's a particular Southport atteaction that you love, search for properties that cater especially to you.
  • Give thought to purchasing trip insurance along with your rental agreement. Trip insurance, which generally add between 1% - 5% of the basic vacation rental price, offers visitors reimbursement of their rental expenses for any missed due to personal health related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unforeseen hotel stay or extra gas.

The Rental Process

You may be pleasantly surprised to discover how many rental properties are available at your destination. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rentals available makes it possible to find an optimum retreat to suit their Southport crew, from relaxed condos to huge event homes with several bedrooms.

Vacation homes are often owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Rental owners frequently choose management companies to assist with advertisements, housekeeping services and regular maintenance.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have identified a number of tips and tricks throughout the years when it comes to renting rental homes, however most newcomers will be delighted to discover that many of these "tricks" are in plain sight, if you recognize where they should look.

How to find and book the best vacation home:

Do you believe "Five Fun Seekers comes with an Ocean View !" is the best rental for your upcoming getaway? Read this check list to confirm it fits your needs.

Start Your Search Early

Southport rentals 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 rental..

Choose your Area and Travel Week

Begin by picking which particular area of Southport you want to visit, and the approximate travel dates.

How Much Rental home Do You Really Need?

Determine who is joining, and just how many/what type of bedroom setup you will need. Remember that a lot of vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. You'll need to figure out what is acceptable for the company. Most rental home listings will describe each of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

Commit to a Spending Limit

Make sure "Five Fun Seekers comes with an Ocean View !" works with your price range *during your desired dates*. Be sure to get cost-sharing commitments from company prior to reserving a pricey vacation property. A single member of your party will need to be given the task of collecting contributions and accepting responsibility for the whole rental fee at time of booking.

Compose a list of "Wants" and "Necessities"

What property features is the family looking for? Is a screened deck a necessity? Do you desire to be far from the crowds, or near civilization? Will the property have bicycles and beach toys available throughout your stay? Gather a list of prioritized "needs and preferences" from your group to help filter your search to the most suitable home.

Special Circumstances

Commonly the elder generation has problems with stairs. Make sure you remember and ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

Fido Approved

Make sure you include your companion! Pet guidelines are different at each rental. Study descriptions carefully. A number of constraints might dismiss a potential rental home. Be sure to read descriptions and contracts carefully. Additional fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. Ask questions *prior to* you book!

Its Time to Search

A number of websites exist to match guests with rental home owners.. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rental homes" for local rental home management companies. Local agencies often have a unique collection of vacation rentals daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

When you've located your dream rental, check to confirm your trip dates are available.

Although not true for all rental properties, many owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Your easiest possibility of a lower rate is changing to a less desirable week.

Study the Total Agreement

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

  • Power bills
  • Internet
  • Phone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Space

In addition to the regular charge, guests will have to pay state taxes when renting "Five Fun Seekers comes with an Ocean View !", along with any other additional fees which might be mandatory based upon their situation, including a dog fee, earlier check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

Trip Insurance

Cancellation policies are different for each rental. Many rental agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which ordinarily costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the standard rental home rate, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any days missed resulting from personal hospital emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unexpected motel stay or additional gas.

Book It

Once you believe you've identified "the one", begin the reservation process. Remember that most rental contracts require a significant rental down payment and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation home owner.

Know Who to Call

Be sure you get the manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your vacation property. We recommend keeping the contact's information in your phone and wallet.

Congrats on booking your rental home! You're on the right path to a phenomenal vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Take notes of any problems immediately after you arrive. We also suggest immediately getting in touch with the rental manager with a report of any problems, together with your request for any needed repairs. If there is a dispute about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts could be useful.
  • You may need guidance for a gas fireplace, Television or spa tub. Get in touch with your home manager. They are there to assist. A brief phone call eliminates many problems.
  • Don't forget to be a good neighbor. Permanent residents usually live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a visit significantly more pleasant.
  • Ask a local. Locals can frequently point you in the right direction.
  • Make sure to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the home secured when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Check Out Time

  • Always make sure you've packed everything. Examine drawers, bath cupboards and wardrobes.
  • Make a point to walk through the rental one final time and look for damages. Whenever possible, do this walk-out review with the property manager present. If the property manager is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Most rental management company websites ask for reviews after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will appreciate your positive reviews. If something went wrong, we recommend being kind but genuine with regards to rental experience. The best property owners and managers will work hard to rectify the problem.

Iterate

Hold a meeting with your travel companions. Does everyone want to re-book next year? Maybe everything was ideal and you are happy to reserve the property for next year. If not, you've acquired useful experience that can help with another 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.

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.
