About this Property

Located under a 500 year old Live Oak this restored historic Victorian beauty will take you back in time. Before stepping inside you'll be charmed by the hand carved marker with the original owner's name and date the home was constructed in 1909. Appreciate a laid-back swing on the front porch or take your coffee on the back porch while being serenaded by the feathered friends in the enormous oak. A enchanting flex space upstairs (i.e. the Tree House Room) is ideal for the children play room, additional company, yoga or exercise. Pet friendly with approval. 

Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Find the official tourism bureau in the area you wish to travel. Many tourism bureaus will send guides with special packages for property management companies, dining and attractions. These guides can provide a good start to your rental home search.
  • Are you willing to switch your dates? Shoulder seasons offer terrific opportunities.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the U.S. Armed forces may be able to get special discounts. Make sure to check with property manager to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a markdown.
  • Some homes are primarily suited for specific types of travellers. Large event homes are perfect for weddings, receptions and corporate retreats. Some rentals cater to beach bums. Other rentals are positioned close to music venues. If there's a particular Southport atteaction which you just love, keep an eye out for properties that cater especially to you.
  • Property management companies and individual property owners generally offer their clients the opportunity to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally add anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay cost, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any missed a result of medical-related emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unexpected motel stay or additional gas. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs (heaven forbid!).

General Rental Information

Newcomers are likely to be shocked at the number and wide variety of short-term vacation rentals available in the Southport area. With such a big selection, vacationers are certain to locate a rental which matches their desires and spending plan.

Vacation homes are usually owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Property management companies are popular with rental owners because they manage the advertising and operations..

Seasoned Southport vacationers have figured out a number of tips and tricks throughout the years when it comes to renting rentals, however most beginners will be happy to know that several "tips" are in plain sight, if you recognize where to look.

Searching for and reserving the right rental home:

Do you think "The Treehouse Cottage" is the perfect rental home for your next trip? Browse through this guide to confirm it fits your preferences.

Search Early and Frequently

Southport rental properties start booking early. For the greatest selection, start your planning and search Six-Twelve months before your trip. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and book your vacation rental home..

Settle on your Town and Travel Week

Start by figuring out which specific area of Southport you want to browse, and the choose travel dates.

Select a Size

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Remember that many rentals list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living area. You'll need to determine what is acceptable for your family. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available online. Otherwise, speak to the property owner before you book.

What Exactly Are You Prepared to Pay?

Will the preferred rental fit your budget during that choice Summer week? Make sure you get cost-sharing commitments from friends and family prior to booking a costly rental home. Most rental documents require a single individual to be liable for the whole reservation.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What property features is the group looking for? Do you simply desire a property with a swimming pool, jacuzzi or volleyball court? Are you more interested in a natural landscape or nightlife? Are items like beach chairs, barbecue grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included with your rental property charge? Make a list of priority amenities to help narrow your search.

Special Issues

Do individual members of your crew have special needs? If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are needed, include that into your search. Nearly all rental home listings include a list of amenities.

Paws-Friendly, Please

Are you or other individuals in the group visiting with a domestic pet? Animal friends are welcome at many rentals, but policies differ. Be sure you read descriptions and contracts carefully. Extra charges may apply when animals are included. If in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Best places to Search

. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rentals" for local rental management companies. Local rental home management companies take pride in a top-quality rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to ensure the vacation home has everything you need. If lacking, the rental home management company may know of very similar homes that fit your style and budget..

While not true for all rental homes, many property owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season stay, try asking for an additional night. Off-peak weeks should be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Study the Total Contract

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

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the normal price, visitors will need to pay state taxes when booking "The Treehouse Cottage", in addition to various other additional fees which might be required depending on their circumstances, including a dog charge, early check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private swimming pool usage during the fall or spring months.

If you want to Cancel

Ensure that you be aware of the cancellation policy prior to reserving. You will likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs ranges from 1% - 5% of your standard vacation rental rate, provides vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent vacation property costs) for any days missed resulting from personal health care emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or additional gas.

Book your Rental Property

When everything looks correct, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. You'll likely need to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Get Contact Information

Put the rental manager's contact info into your phone and wallet for easy access to answers during your trip.

Congratulations on booking your rental home! You're on your way to a fantastic vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any property damage right after you arrive. Get in touch with the property manager immediately to report your observations. This will prevent disputes during check out.
  • Ask questions. When there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, property access, swimming pool operation, etc... we suggest you ask the rental home manager immediately. A quick phone call eliminates many headaches.
  • Please be respectful of the local community. Residents frequently live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking rules can make a trip a little more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Natives may point you in the right direction.
  • Make sure that you protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, just like you would at home.

Checking Out

  • Double-check every space of the rental home to make sure that you've packed all valuables.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one last time and look for damages. We advise walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (this isn't always the case).. If the property owner is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you feel about your choice? Just about all rental management companies and vacation rental websites permit travellers to provide feedback. If your property and/or property manager was top-notch, they will appreciate your recommendations. If something went wrong, we suggest being pleasant but genuine with regards to your experience. Top property owners and managers will try hard to fix the issue.

Iterate

Hold a debrief with your travel companions. Did everyone have a blast? With a little luck everything was exceptional and you are all set to re-book the property for next season. If the rental home was not ideal, and you will better know how to improve 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.
