Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Many rental owners and vacation rental homes provide Southport area discount catalogs that feature money-saving coupons, either offered independently by local companies, or via a partnership between the management company and the local itself. These guides may provide an excellent start to your rental home search.
  • In a position to modify your trip week? The off-peak shoulder seasons can offer phenomenal rates on weekly rental accommodations.
  • Are you a military veteran? Some vacation rental companies provide discounted prices to vets and active-duty military. Make sure to check with property management company to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a reduced price.
  • Some rental homes are essentially designed to serve particular customers, whether it's beachfront homes with weekly pier passes, city-center homes with nearby access to restaurants or waterfront homes that have private windsurfing launching areas. If there's a particular Southport activity you simply love, look for rentals that cater especially to your needs.
  • Consider purchasing trip insurance together with your lease agreement. Trip insurance, which usually add anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay cost, offers vacationers reimbursement of their rental expenses for any days missed as a consequence of personal medical related emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unplanned motel stay or additional gas. Trip insurance can be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs (heaven forbid!).

How to Book a Rental Home

First-timers are likely to be surprised at the number and wide variety of short term rental properties available in the Southport area. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of properties available makes it possible to find an suitable getaway to accommodate their Southport family, from low-noise condominiums to giant event homes with several bedrooms.

The majority of rental properties in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by established local rental management companies. Vacation home management companies leverage scale, technology and practical knowledge to provide painless operational administration on behalf of the property owner..

Below are some tips and tactics to help you understand the vacation home search and booking process.

Finding and reserving the perfect rental home:

Do you think "Fun Summer GETAWAY at a Super Cute OCEANFRONT COTTAGE ! " is the perfect rental for your upcoming visit? Read through this guide to ensure it fits all of your preferences.

Start Your Search Early

Like many renowned destinations, In Southport the best vacation homes are booked early. Booking your rental property 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, when possible. Holiday gatherings are a great time for family groups to plot their Summer trips..

Find your Spot and Determine Dates

Agreement can be challenging between family, but as soon as this difficult part is complete everything will quickly fall in place.

Choose a Size

Determine who is joining, and how many/what kind of bedroom configuration you'll need. Remember that that many vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You'll need to determine what is suitable for your party. Most vacation home listings will describe each of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

Determine Your Budget

Does your preferred rental suit your budget during that prime Summer week? If many groups or family members are sharing the cost, check that each group knows their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to pay. One individual in your group must be responsible for getting payments and agreeing to responsibility for the complete rental cost at time of booking.

Compose a list of "Wants" and "Needs"

What amenities is your group trying to find? Do you want a rental property with outdoor lounge? Are you more enthusiastic about a natural landscape or night life? Are extras like beach chairs, barbecue grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included in your rental property payment? Create a list of priority amenities to guide narrow your search.

Accessibility and Special Things to consider

Occasionally the older generation has challenges with stairs. Make sure you remember and inquire about wheel chair access, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

Take the Dog

Remember to include your pets. Dog policies are different at each rental. Read descriptions carefully. Many constraints could eliminate a prospective rental property. Examine your contract thoroughly! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *prior to* you book!

It Is Time to Search

Several websites exist to match vacationers with property owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Southport local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local agencies generally have an exclusive collection of rental properties daily and weekly.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to be sure the rental has everything that you need. If something is missing, the property management company might know of similar homes that better fit your preferences and budget..

Although not true for all properties, many owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try getting an additional night. Off-peak weeks are likely to be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Read The Agreement

Read through the entire contract and be certain you fully understand who is liable for:

  • Electric bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the normal charge, vacationers must pay local taxes when booking "Fun Summer GETAWAY at a Super Cute OCEANFRONT COTTAGE ! ", as well as any other additional fees which might be required based upon their circumstances, including an animal charge, early check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heat fee for private pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

Cancellations Happen

Cancellation policies vary for each rental. Many rental property contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs ranges from 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental price, provides vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent vacation property costs) for any nights missed as a consequence of personal hospital emergencies or weather, and additionally hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unexpected motel stay or additional gas.

Book your Rental Home

After you feel you've found "the one", start the reservation process. You'll probably need to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Where to Get Assistance

Make sure that you get the property manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. We suggest saving the contact's details in your smartphone and wallet.

Congrats on reserving your vacation home! You're on the right path to a wonderful vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental property right away. Call the rental manager immediately to report your observations. If there is a disagreement about responsibility later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts should be very helpful.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a gas fireplace, TV or spa. Contact your rental manager. They are there to assist. A quick phone call eliminates many head aches.
  • Remember to be a good neighbor. Often times, adjacent residences are filled by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a vacation a little more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Locals are a terrific source of advice. Who better to ask where to get the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best areas for shopping?
  • Be sure to protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation rental secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Make sure that you've packed everything. Inspect drawers, bath cabinets and wardrobes.
  • Once your things are all out, do a walk-through of the rental home to confirm no property damage occurred in the course of your stay. We suggest walking through with the property manager wherever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property manager is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you rate your experience? Most rental management companies and rental websites permit renters to provide reviews. If your vacation rental and/or property manager was outstanding, they'll appreciate your recommendations. If anything went wrong, we recommend being kind but genuine about your rental experience. Top property owners and managers will try very hard to fix the problem.

Learn from your Experience

Hold a vacation recap meeting with your traveling companions. Did everybody have a great time? If everything was exceptional, next year's family vacation planning will be easy. If the property wasn't quite right, and you'll better know how to refine 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.

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.
