Money-saving Tips

  • Search for the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many official tourism bureaus will send you promotional travel guides with deals for rental properties, restaurants and activities. Be on the lookout for these catalogs and promotional books, as this allows vacationers to experience those attractions with a generally substantial discounted.
  • Want to avoid the crowds of people and lower your expenses? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of top costs.
  • Several vacation rental companies and owners offer rate reductions for active and veteran men and women of the Military, or returning guests of the same rental home. Be sure to confirm with property manager to see if your travelling crew qualifies for a discounted price.
  • Some homes are primarily designed for particular groups of travellers. Large event homes are great for weddings, wedding parties and corporate escapes. Some properties appeal to wildlife enthusiasts. Other properties are situated close to nightlife. Make sure to prioritize your proximity to the family activities and landmarks you are most excited about.
  • Rental companies and individual property owners commonly offer their customers the opportunity to buy trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental rate, provides visitors reimbursement of their rental costs for any days missed as a result of medical emergencies or storms, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unforeseen hotel room stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs (heaven forbid!).

How to Book a Rental Home

You may be pleasantly surprised to uncover how many rental properties are available at your destination. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of essential search sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

Vacation rentals are commonly owner operated or managed by property management companies. Owners often select management companies to assist with advertising and marketing, house cleaning services and maintenance tasks.

Here are some tips and methods to help you navigate the vacation rental search and booking process.

Finding and reserving the best rental:

Do you believe "OCEANFRONT, Heated Salt Water Pool, Elevator--Safe, Clean & Near Boardwalk" is the best rental for your next vacation? Read through this checklist to make sure it fits all of your needs.

Search Early and Often

Southport rental properties book many months (and up to a year) in advance. For the greatest selection, start your planning and search 6-12 months prior to a trip. Holiday gatherings are a popular time for families to plan their Summer trips..

Pick your Place and Vacation Week

Begin by figuring out which particular area of Southport you prefer to visit, and the determine dates you'll be vacationing.

How Much Vacation rental Do You Actually Need?

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Be aware that most vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You will need to figure out what is most appropriate for the group. Most rental home listings will describe each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

What Are You Prepared to Pay?

Make certain "OCEANFRONT, Heated Salt Water Pool, Elevator--Safe, Clean & Near Boardwalk" satisfies your budget *during your desired dates*. If several individuals or relatives are sharing the cost, make sure that everybody understands their obligation and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to contribute. Generally, one person in the group will be responsible for making the full reservation and collecting each party's contribution.

Let's Talk Amenities

What amenities is the group interested in? Is a screened-in deck a necessity? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or amusements? Are bed linens included with the rental agreement, or will you need to bring your own? Make a list of priority features to help narrow your search.

Accessibility and Special Issues

Do individual members of your crew have specialized needs? If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is necessary, include that into your search. Nearly all vacation rental listings include a list of amenities.

Paws-Friendly, Please

Are you or other members of the party traveling with a family dog? Although quite a few vacation homes permit dogs, rules and costs fluctuate per property. Type of pet, size and dog breeds might be restricted. Examine your agreement very carefully! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *prior to* you reserve!

Where to Search

. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local vacation rentals" for local rental management companies. Aside from offering distinctive rental properties, local agencies offer superb service..

Negotiate

When you have spotted the rentalhome of your dreams, double check to make sure your vacation dates are available.

While not true for all properties, many property owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Your best opportunity for a reduced rate is changing to a less desirable week.

Study the Total Agreement

Discover which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Power bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the standard rate, travelers have to pay local taxes when renting "OCEANFRONT, Heated Salt Water Pool, Elevator--Safe, Clean & Near Boardwalk", in addition to any other fees which might be required depending on their situation, including an animal charge, early check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heat fee for private swimming pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

Cancelling your Rental property

Cancellation policies are different for each property. Many rental contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of your base vacation rental rate, provides guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any days missed due to personal health-related emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unexpected motel stay or additional gas.

Complete the Booking

As soon as you feel you've identified "the one", begin the booking process. You will probably be required to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

Be sure to get the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We suggest storing the contact's information in your smartphone and wallet.

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

During your Stay

  • To ensure no damages are attributed to your visit, make a record of any trouble spots of the property. We also recommend promptly phoning the property manager with a report of any damage, together with your request for any necessary repairs. This may prevent disputes during checkout.
  • Ask questions. If there is any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, house access, pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental home manager immediately. A phone call can save hours of problems.
  • Remember to be a good next-door neighbor. Permanent residents invariably live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a vacation a good deal more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Residents are a fantastic source of suggestions. Who better to ask where to get the best pizza, have a great date night, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Ensure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the home secured while you are away, just like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Make sure you've packed all of your personal belongings. Sweep all the rooms in the home for forgotten items. Check bath rooms, the garage, kitchen cupboards, outdoor patios, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • When everything is out, begin a walk-through of the property to confirm no property damage occurred during your stay. Whenever possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, be sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have an enjoyable time? Nearly all rental property web sites ask for reviews after your stay . Rental owners and rental managers will thank you for glowing recommendations. If anything was disagreeable and they did not fix it in a acceptable manner, or if the property wasn't as described, you may want to make it a point as part of your comments.

Learn from your Stay

Did they love their rental? If everything was perfect, next year's vacation planning is going to be simple and easy. Maybe the rental wasn't quite right, and you will better recognize how to filter your search next time.

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.
