How to get the best deal on your rental

  • Many property owners and rental properties supply Southport area printed travel magazines which include money-saving coupons, either offered independently by merchants, or by a relationship between the management company and the local store itself. These guides provide a great start to your vacation rental search.
  • Are you willing to alter your trip dates? Shoulder seasons offer impressive offers.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be qualified for discounts. Make sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a discounted rate.
  • Some rentals are basically designed to serve specific travelers, whether it is oceanside rentals with fishing pier passes, city-center homes with nearby access to restaurants or waterfront homes that feature private jetski launching areas. If there's a specific Southport activity which you just love, search for rental properties that cater especially to your needs.
  • Management companies and individual rental owners typically offer clients an option to purchase trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which usually add between 1% - 5% of the base term price, offers guests reimbursement of their rental expenses for any nights missed as a result of personal health-related emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel room stay or extra gasoline. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens .

The Rental Process

Many people are shocked to discover the number of rental homes are available in Southport. With such a wide selection, guests are certain to find a vacation home that meets their desires and spending plan.

The vast majority of rentals in Southport are privately operated and many are represented by experienced local rental management agencies. Owners typically choose management companies to manage advertisements, house cleaning services and routine maintenance.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have discovered a number of tips and tricks throughout the years with regards to renting vacation homes, however many beginners will be delighted to discover that many of these "techniques" are in plain sight, if you understand where to search.

Searching for and booking the right rental:

Before you start to book ""PLAYIN' HOOK-Y".....GET AWAY FROM IT ALL....", go through our short collection of issues to consider.

The Sooner, The Better

Southport rentals book months (and up to a year) in advance. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates is usually recommended, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and reserve your rental home..

Find your Area and Decide Dates

Consensus can often be complicated between family members, but once this complicated part is complete everything will start to slide in place.

How Much Rental home Do You Really Need?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Remember that most rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living area. You will need to determine what is most appropriate for your family. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available online. Otherwise, contact the property owner before you reserve the home.

Stick to a Budget

Most rental homes are advertised with a cost range. Determine the rate for your preferred week. It may be at the high end of the range. If a few individuals or loved ones are sharing the cost, confirm that everyone understands their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to contribute. Typically, a single member of the group will be liable for making the whole reservation and recovering each family member's share.

Create a list of "Preferences" and "Requirements"

What property features is your group trying to find? Is a screened deck a requirement? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or close to a city setting? Are items like beach chairs, grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included in your rental property rate? Make a list of prioritized "necessities and preferences" from your group to help filter your search to the perfect home.

Special Considerations

Adequate access can make or ruin a trip for the less-mobile. Ensure that you remember and inquire about wheelchair entry, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

Think About 4-Legged Family Members?

Are you or other people in the crew traveling with a furry companion? Animals are welcome at a number of rental homes, but policies differ. A number of constraints may dismiss a prospective rental. Be sure to study descriptions and contracts carefully. Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. When in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Start your Search

Once the area, travel dates and people are decided, search multiple sources to find the best rental home selection. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local rental management companies. Apart from offering exclusive properties, local agencies offer outstanding service..

Negotiate

Re-read the description to be certain the vacation home has everything that you need. If it is lacking, the vacation rental management company may know of very similar properties that better suit your style and budget..

Some rental home owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Negotiating rates is more effective throughout the off-peak season when many rentals sit empty.

Study the Agreement

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

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the regular rate, travelers must pay state taxes when booking ""PLAYIN' HOOK-Y".....GET AWAY FROM IT ALL....", in addition to various other fees that may be required depending on their situation, including an animal charge, early check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Cancellations Happen

Cancellation policies vary for each rental. You'll probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives relief should catastrophe strike.

Book It

When everything looks correct, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. Remember that most rental agreements will require a considerable rental down payment and/or security deposit to protect the vacation home owner.

Where to Get Assistance

Put the rental manager's contact info into your smartphone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your stay.

Congratulations on reserving your vacation rental! You're on the way to a phenomenal vacation!

During your Stay

  • Record the overall condition of the rental unit right away. We also advise promptly phoning the rental home manager with a report of any damages, together with your request for any required repairs. If there is a disagreement about legal liability later, having the documented problems and communication attempts should be incredibly helpful.
  • Ask questions. If there is any ambiguity about parking, policies of the property, house access, pool operation, etc... we recommend you ask the property manager immediately. A phone call can save hours of trouble.
  • Be considerate of the neighborhood. More often than not, adjacent households are lived in by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking restrictions can make a stay substantially more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a great source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great date night, or the best spots for wildlife?
  • Make sure that you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental locked up when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Check to make sure you've packed everything. Examine drawers, bath cupboards and wardrobes.
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one last time and check for damage. If at all possible, do this walk-out inspection with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, be sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you feel about your stay? Nearly all rental home sites request testimonials after your stay . Rental owners and property managers will appreciate your favorable critiques. If anything was disagreeable and they didn't correct it in a practical manner, or if the rental home was not as described, you will want to make it a point as part of your critique.

Use Your Experience

Hold a meeting with your travel companions. Did they like the property? We hope this guide helped you find a great rental. If not, you've gained invaluable rental search experience to help with another 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. Choose from luxury oceanfront houses and condos to more reasonbly priced 2nd row properties with oceanviews. 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.
