How to Book a Rental Home

Some people are shocked to learn how many rentals can be found in Southport. With such a big selection, clients are certain to locate a property that fits their desires and price range.

Virtually all vacation rentals in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local property management companies. Rental owners typically choose management companies to manage advertising, house cleaning services and maintenance.

Here are some ideas and methods to help you navigate the vacation rental search and reservation process.

Searching for and booking the best rental:

Before you start to book "Coming Soon - FSBO 3BR in Maritime Forest! Large lot & great rental history", examine our brief list of points to consider.

The Sooner You Begin, The Better The Selection

Southport vacation homes start booking very early. To get the best selection, begin your planning and search Six-12 months before your trip. Holiday gatherings are a great time for families to plan their Summer family trips..

Find your Area and Choose Dates

Begin by determining which specific area of Southport you'd like to visit, and the choose travel dates.

Selecting an Adequately-Sized Rental home

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Consider that many properties list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to determine what is acceptable for the family. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically accessible on the internet. If not, speak to the property owner before you reserve the home.

Stick to a Budget

Confirm that "Coming Soon - FSBO 3BR in Maritime Forest! Large lot & great rental history" suits your price range *during your desired dates*. If many individuals or relatives are sharing the cost, be certain that each group understands their responsibilities and has approved a maximum they are prepared to contribute. In most cases, a single member of the group will be in charge of making the whole reservation and getting each party's share.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What home features is the group interested in? Is a screened deck a requirement? Would you like to be away from it all, or close to a city setting? Does the rental have bicycles and body boards for use throughout your stay? Make a list of priority conveniences to facilitate narrow your search.

Accessability

Optimal accessibility can make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is necessary, include that into your search. Most property listings will include a list of amenities.

Go ahead and Take the Dog

Don't forget to include your best friend! Even though a number of vacation homes permit family pets, guidelines and fees fluctuate per property. Many constraints may eliminate a prospective rental. Make sure you study descriptions and contracts carefully. Additional fees or costs may be applied to your contract. If in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Negotiate

When you have located your dream rental, make sure your trip dates are available.

Although not true for all rental homes, many property owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Off-peak weeks will probably be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Read the Entire Contract

  • Utility bills

Reserve your Rental Home

As soon as you think you've identified "the one", start the reservation process. You will probably have to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Get Contact Information

During your Stay

  • To make certain no damages are attributed to your stay, create a record of any problem areas of the property. We also advise immediately phoning the rental home manager with a report of any damage, along with your request for any necessary fixes. If there is a dispute about responsibility later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will probably be useful.
  • Ask questions. If there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the property, property access, pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental manager immediately. A brief phone call prevents many head aches.
  • Please remember to respect your nearby neighbors. Locals will likely be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a vacation much more pleasant.
  • Ask a local. Natives are a fantastic source of advice.
  • Enjoy your stay! Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental home locked up while you are away, just like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Double-check every space of the vacation property to ensure that you've packed all belongings.
  • When everything is out, begin a walk-through of the rental to verify no property damage occurred during your remain. If 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 would you rate your experience? Virtually all rental property sites request reviews after your stay is complete. Rental owners and rental managers will thank you for glowing reviews. If anything was unsatisfactory and they did not correct it in a acceptable manner, or if the vacation rental was not as described, you'll want to note that in your critique.

Learn and Improve

Did they enjoy their vacation? Maybe everything turned out to be ideal and you are ready to re-book the same rental for next season. Otherwise, you've acquired invaluable experience that can help with your next search.
