Wallet-Friendly Tips

  • Find the tourism bureau where you want to visit. Most established tourism bureaus will send you promotional travel guide books with special deals for accommodations, restaurants and activities. These guides can provide a good start to your rental search.
  • Flexible about when you might travel? The off-peak seasons generally offer amazing rates on daily rental properties.
  • Are you a military veteran? A number of vacation rental companies offer discounts to veterans and active-duty servicemembers. Be sure to ask property owner to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a discounted rate.
  • Some properties are particularly suited for specific types of visitors. Event homes are ideal for weddings, receptions and corporate meetings. Some rentals cater to beach bums. Other rentals are positioned close to nightlife. Make sure that you prioritize your proximity to the adventures and interesting attractions you are most interested in.
  • Give thought to obtaining trip insurance along with your rental agreement. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental rate, offers buyers reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed as a consequence of health emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unplanned hotel stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

How Much Vacation rental Do You Need?

How many family members are planning to share your getaway? Be aware that many vacation rentals list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the family room.

If not, speak to the property manager before you book.

Make a Spending Limit

What amenities is the family interested in? Do you just desire a property with a swimming pool, jacuzzi or beach volleyball court? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or close to civilization? Are sheets included with the rental contract, or will you need to bring your own? Make a list of prioritized "needs and wants" from your party to help filter your search to the most suitable rental.

Negotiate the Price

When you've found your dream rental, double check to make sure your vacation dates are available.

Some rental home owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Your easiest opportunity for a reduced rate is shifting to an off-season week.

During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. Record the condition of the rental unit right away. If you find wear and tear, or if repairs are needed call the property manager without delay. This will protect against conflicts during checkout.
  • Ask questions. You could need guidance for a fireplace, TV or spa. Contact your home manager. They are there to help. A quick phone call prevents many head aches.
  • Please remember to respect your nearby neighbors. Natives are likely to be as friendly to you as you are considerate of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a trip substantially more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a fantastic source of advice.
  • Be sure to protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental home secured when you are away, just like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Confirm that you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cupboards and closets.
  • As soon as everything is out, do a walk-through of the rental home to make sure no property damage occurred during your remain. We recommend walking through with the rental manager whenever possible (this isn't always the case)..

  • Did you enjoy yourself? Many rental management companies and rental websites make it easy for renters to provide reviews. If the property and/or property manager was top notch, they will appreciate your compliments. If anything was disagreeable and they failed to fix it in a acceptable manner, or when the rental home was not as described, you should make it a point as part of your critique.

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.
