Money Saving Strategies

  • Find the official tourism bureau where you want to vacation. Most official tourism bureaus will send you travel guide books with special offers for rental homes, dining and attractions. Be on the lookout for these books and promotional books, since this allows travelers to experience the same wonderful attractions at a considerable discounted.
  • Are the trip dates changeable? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of top prices.
  • Are you a military veteran? Quite a few vacation rental companies offer discounted prices to vets and active-duty servicemembers. Make sure to ask vacation rental company to see if your travelling gang is eligible for a markdown.
  • Is there a particular activity that you are mainly getting excited about during your stay? If there's a certain Southport atteaction which you just love, search for rental properties that cater especially to you.
  • Property management companies and individual home owners generally offer their clients the opportunity to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally add anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental rate, offers travellers reimbursement of their trip expenses for any missed a result of health-related emergencies or storms, and additionally ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unforeseen hotel stay or extra gasoline. Trip insurance can be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens .

General Vacation Rental Information

Some people are shocked to discover just how many rentals are offered in Southport. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rentals available makes it possible to find an perfect retreat to accommodate their Southport gang, from quiet condominiums to colossal event homes with several bedrooms.

The majority of rental properties in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local property management agencies. Vacation rental management companies leverage scale, staff and expertise to provide simple and easy operational management on behalf of the owner..

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

Finding and reserving the perfect rental property:

Do you believe "Premier location 2min to beach;shortest walk to Kindred Spirit, 2 MASTER SUITES" is the perfect vacation property for your next visit? Read this check list to confirm it fits your needs.

Start Your Search Early

Southport rentals start booking very early. For the greatest selection, start your planning and search 6-Twelve months prior to your trip. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your vacation rental..

Select a Town and Date

Agreement can be tricky between members of the family, but the moment this complicated part is complete everything will begin to drop in place.

Choosing an Adequately-Sized Vacation rental

How many relatives are joining your getaway? Consider that a lot of homes list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for your family. Most rental home listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Stick to a Budget

Check to make sure "Premier location 2min to beach;shortest walk to Kindred Spirit, 2 MASTER SUITES" works with your price range *during your desired dates*. If a few individuals or families are sharing the cost, always make sure that each party understands their obligation and has approved a maximum they are willing to chip in. Most rental contracts call for a single person to be in charge of the entire reservation.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is your group looking for? Do you want a rental property with patio kitchen? Do you desire to be far from the crowds, or close to a city setting? Will the property have bicycles and body boards available for use as part of your stay? Create a list of priority conveniences to help narrow your search.

Accessability

Grandpa and Grandma will thank you for not reserving a stairs-only condominium on the Third floor. If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are necessary, factor that into your search. Almost all rental postings will include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Make sure you include your companion! Animal friends are welcome at a number of rental properties, but policies differ. Many constraints may dismiss a prospective rental. Read your agreement thoroughly! Additional fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *well before* you reserve!

It Is Time to Search

After the place, time and people are decided, search multiple sources for the greatest vacation home selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local vacation rental management companies. Apart from having exclusive rental properties, local companies offer top-notch service..

Negotiate

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

Some rental home owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try asking for an additional night. Your easiest opportunity for a reduced rate is switching to an off-season week.

Study the Entire Contract

Read through the complete agreement and make sure you fully understand who is responsible for:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the regular fee, visitors will need to pay local taxes when booking "Premier location 2min to beach;shortest walk to Kindred Spirit, 2 MASTER SUITES", along with any other additional fees which may be mandatory based upon their circumstances, including a pet fee, earlier check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heating fee for private pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Cancellations Happen

Be sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy prior to reserving. Vacation home management companies and individual rental owners typically offer their guests the choice to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance safeguards the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It offers comfort should disaster strike.

Complete the Reservation

When everything looks right, it's finally time to sign a rental agreement. You will likely be required to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Where to Get Assistance

Put the rental manager's contact info into your cell phone and wallet for quick access to answers throughout your trip.

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Take notes of any problems as soon as you arrive. Call the property manager right away to report your findings. If there is a disagreement about liability later, having the documented problems and contact attempts should be helpful.
  • Ask questions. You could need guidance for a gas fireplace, Television or hot tub. Call your property manager. They are there to help. A brief phone call eliminates many head aches.
  • Make sure to be a good next-door neighbor. Many times, adjacent homes are filled by permanent locals. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Natives are a fantastic source of suggestions. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Make sure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the home locked up while you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Checking Out

  • Make sure you've packed all your possessions. Sweep each room in the home for left-behind items. Check bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, outdoor patios, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make a point to walk through the rental one last time and look for property damage. If at all possible, do this walk-out review with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you feel about your stay? Many vacation rental web sites seek testimonials after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will appreciate your favorable recommendations. If anything was unsatisfactory and they didn't fix it in a reasonable manner, or when the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point in your comments.

Use Your Experience

Does everyone want to go back? If everything was perfect, next year's family vacation planning is going to be simple. Maybe the rental property was not quite right, and you'll better know how to refine your search for the next time.

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.
