Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Search for the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many official tourism bureaus offer printed tourism guides with savings for rental properties, dining and attractions. Look for these catalogs and promotional books, as this allows vacation goers to take advantage of the very same terrific attractions with a sometimes considerable discounted.
  • Are you able to change your trip dates? Off-peak times offer up sizeable deals.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Many management companies offer unique discounts to vets and active-duty servicemembers. Be sure to ask property owner to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a markdown.
  • Some rentals are basically designed to serve particular visitors, whether it's oceanside rentals with weekly fishing pier passes, city-center condos with nearby access to restaurants or waterfront homes that have their own jetski launching areas. You'll receive the most value from a home that most directly matches your ideal trip setting, even if it costs a bit extra.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners frequently offer their guests the option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base stay price, offers visitors reimbursement of their trip expenses for any nights missed as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas.

General Rental property Advice

You may be surprised to uncover just how many rentals are available at your destination. With such a wide selection, guests are certain to discover a vacation home that matches their desires and spending plan.

Vacation rentals are often owner operated or managed by property management companies. Property management companies are liked by property owners because they coordinate the advertising and operations..

Here are some ideas and techniques to help you navigate the vacation rental search and booking process.

Searching for and reserving the perfect rental property:

Do you think "Historic Yopp Suite on Princess Street" is the perfect rental for your next getaway? Browse through this check list to confirm it fits all of your preferences.

Search Early and Frequently

Southport rentals start booking very early. For the best selection, start your planning and search Six-Twelve months before your trip. Many families prefer to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.

Choose a Town and Time

Sometimes, the hardest portion of organizing your vacation is figuring out where to go, and when. Once the big decisions are hammered out, everything else is simplier and easier.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

How many family members are joining your trip? Consider 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 family. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically accessible online. If not, communicate with the property owner before you reserve the home.

What Exactly Are You Willing to Pay?

The majority of vacation rentals are advertised with a price range. Confirm the price for your chosen stay. It might be at the top end of the range. Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from company well before booking an expensive rental home. Generally, one member of the group will be liable for making the whole reservation and collecting each person's share.

Create a list of "Preferences" and "Necessities"

What amenities is your family looking for? Is a screened-in deck a necessity? Do you desire to be far from the crowds, or near civilization? Are mattress sheets included with the rental, or do you need to provide your own? Make a list of "necessities and wishes" from your party to help filter your search to the most appropriate home.

Special Factors to consider

Proper accessibility can make or ruin a visit for the less-mobile. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are necessary, include that into your search. Nearly all rental home listings will include a list of amenities.

Take the Dog

Are you or other members of the family travelling with a family pet? Animal friends are welcome at a number of rentals, but policies differ. Type of animal, size and dog breeds might be restricted. Make certain you read agreements and contracts carefully. Charges may apply when animals are included.

Start your Search

Several internet resources exist to match renters with rental owners.. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local rentals" for local rental home management companies. Local rental home management companies pride themselves on an exceptional rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to make sure the vacation rental has everything you need. If it is something is missing, the property management company may know of very similar homes that better suit your preferences and budget..

Some rental owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If they are hesitant to budge on a highly-desirable week, try asking for an additional night. Your easiest chance of a reduced rate will be changing to a less desirable week.

Read The Agreement

Find out which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Utilities
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

Be sure that your quote includes all taxes and fees.

Trip Insurance

Cancellation policies vary with each rental. Vacation rental management companies and individual home owners typically offer their guests the choice to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives you reassurance should catastrophe strike.

Reserve It

When everything looks correct, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. Remember that most rental contracts require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to protect the rental owner.

Keep Your Contact's Information

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

Good job on reserving your rental home! You're on the right path to a wonderful vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any damages when you arrive. We also advise immediately phoning the rental manager with a report of any problems, along with your request for any necessary repairs. This can prevent conflicts during checkout.
  • Ask questions. You could need instructions for a gas fireplace, Television set or jacuzzi. Call your home manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save several hours of problems.
  • Please be respectful of the community. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a trip a little more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a good source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best places for wildlife?
  • Enjoy your stay! Don't forget to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental locked up while you are away, exactly like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Check to make sure you've packed all of your possessions. Sweep all the rooms in the house for left-behind possessions. Check bath rooms, the garage, cabinets, patios, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make sure to walk through the rental one final time and check for damages. We advise walking through with the rental manager wherever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property manager is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your vacation? Many vacation rental management companies and rental search sites make it easy for travellers to offer reviews. If the rental home and/or property manager was great, they'll appreciate your recommendations. If something went wrong and they didn't fix it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you will want to note that in your feedback.

Iterate

Did they like the property? Hopefully everything ended up being exceptional and you are all set to re-book the rental home for next season. If not, you've acquired invaluable rental search experience to aid 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.
