Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Search for the official tourism bureau in the area you wish to travel. Most tourism bureaus will offer you printed tourism guide books with special packages for rental properties, dining and activities. Look for these catalogs and discount books, as this allows vacation goers to take advantage of the same great attractions with a sometimes significantly discounted.
  • Are you able to move your dates? Shoulder seasons feature phenomenal discounts.
  • A number of vacation rental companies and owners offer discounts for active duty and veteran men and women of the U.S. Armed forces, or repeat visitors to the same rental. Make sure to ask property manager to see if your vacationing group is eligible for a price reduction.
  • Some homes are particularly suited for particular groups of vacationers. Large event homes are perfect for weddings, wedding receptions and corporate escapes. Some rentals cater to beach bums. Other properties are situated close to nightlife. You'll get the most value from a rental that most closely matches your ideal holiday setting, regardless if it costs a bit more.
  • Rental companies and individual property owners frequently offer their guests an opportunity to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually add between 1% - 5% of the base stay rate, offers guests reimbursement of their trip expenses for any days missed resulting from personal health-related emergencies or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unexpected hotel stay or extra gasoline.

The Rental Process

First-timers are likely to be surprised at the number and wide range of daily, weekly and monthly properties available in the Southport area. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of vacation homes available makes it possible to find an perfect retreat to accommodate their Southport group, from low-noise condominiums to colossal event homes with several bedrooms.

The vast majority of rental properties in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by established local property management agencies. Property management companies leverage scale, staff and experience to provide hassle-free operational administration on behalf of the property owner..

Here are some ideas and suggestions to help you understand the vacation rental search and booking process.

Where to find and reserve the best vacation rental:

Before you decide to book "Historic Costello Suite - 211 Princess St.", review our short list of issues to consider.

Search Early and Frequently

Southport vacation homes book several months (and up to a year) in advance. To assure the very best selection of rental homes, we advise searching and reserving your Southport rental Six-Twelve months in advance, whenever you can. Many visitors plan to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve gatherings.

Find your Spot and Decide Dates

Begin by figuring out which particular area of Southport you want to explore, and the approximate trip dates.

Choose a Size

How many relatives are joining your getaway? Try to remember that a lot of rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the family room. You'll need to figure out what is most appropriate for your company. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically accessible on the internet. If not, email or call the property owner before you reserve the home.

Exactly What Are You Willing to Pay?

Will your favorite vacation property suit your budget during that prime Summer week? Make certain to get cost-sharing commitments from travel companions before booking a costly rental property. Most rental agreements require a single individual to be responsible for the whole reservation.

Vacation home Features

What home features is your family looking for? Is a screened porch a requirement? Are you more enthusiastic about a natural landscape or nightlife? Are extras like beach chairs, grills, umbrellas, beach carts or coolers available and included with your rental property charge? Gather a list of "necessities and desires" from your party to help filter your search to the most appropriate property.

Accessability

In some cases the senior generation has challenges with stairs. Make sure you remember and ask about wheelchair access, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Do not forget to include your companion! Animal guidelines are different at each rental. Study descriptions carefully. Type of pet, size and breeds may be limited. Study your contract carefully! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement.

Where to Search

. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local rental management companies. Local agencies typically have an exclusive assortment of vacation homes daily and weekly.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to be certain the rental has everything you need. If it is lacking, the property management company may know of comparable properties that fit your preferences and budget..

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 might be. Off-peak weeks will probably be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Study the Total Agreement

Read through the entire agreement and be certain you fully understand who is responsible for:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • 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 Space

Get a total that incorporates state taxes, pet and other extra fees.

Cancellations Happen

Ensure that you understand the cancellation policy before reserving. You will probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives you peace of mind should catastrophe strike.

Reserve your Rental Property

As soon as you believe you've found "the one", start the booking process. You will likely be asked to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Get Contact Details

Put the rental manager's contact information into your smart phone and wallet for easy access to answers during your stay.

Congrats on reserving your vacation rental! You're on your way to a phenomenal vacation!

During your Stay

  • To make certain no damages are linked to your visit, create a record of any problem areas of the property. If you find damages, or if repairs are needed get in touch with the property manager right away. This can protect against conflicts during checkout.
  • Ask questions. You might need instructions for a fireplace, TV or hot tub. Get in touch with your home manager. They are there to assist. A brief phone call prevents many head aches.
  • Make sure to be a good neighbor. Often, adjacent homes are filled by permanent residents. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Natives are a great source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to get the best chicken wings, have a great date night, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make certain to protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation home locked up when you are away, just like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Confirm that you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cabinetry and closets.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental home one last time and look for property damage. When possible, do this walk-out inspection with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your getaway? Nearly all rental web sites ask for comments after your stay is complete. Rental owners and property managers will thank you for favorable ratings. If something went wrong, we advise being pleasant but genuine with regards to your stay. Top property owners and managers will try very hard to fix the situation.

Use Your Experience

Does everyone want to re-book next year? Hopefully this guide steered you to a fantastic home away from home. If not, you've acquired invaluable rental search experience that will help with the next 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.
