How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Find the tourism bureau where you want to travel. Most established tourism bureaus offer printed travel guides with special deals for rental properties, restaurants and activities. These guides can provide an excellent start to your rental home search.
  • Is it possible to change your vacation week? The off-peak seasons will offer you terrific rates on weekly rental properties.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the U.S. Armed forces may qualify for cost savings. Make sure to confirm with property management company to see if your visiting gang is eligible for a reduction.
  • Is there a specific experience you are most anticipating during your stay? If there's a certain Southport activity which you just love, keep an eye out for rentals that cater especially to your needs.
  • Property management companies and individual rental home owners often offer their clients the option to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually add between 1% - 5% of the base rental cost, provides guests reimbursement of their travel expenses for any nights missed as a result of personal medical emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unforeseen motel stay or additional fuel. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

How to Book a Vacation Home

Newcomers are often shocked at the number and wide range of short term properties available in the Southport area. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rental properties available makes it possible to find an ideal getaway to fit their Southport crew, from calm condos to colossal event homes with several bedrooms.

The majority of vacation rentals in Southport are privately operated and many are represented by established local property management agencies. Vacation rental management companies leverage scale, staff and knowledge to provide effortless operational management on behalf of the property owner..

Below are some tips and techniques to help you navigate the rental home search and reservation process.

Searching for and reserving the best vacation property:

Do you think "Walk downtown from this beautiful 1850 Antebellum home" is the best rental home for your next getaway? Browse through this checklist to ensure it fits your preferences.

Start Your Search Early

Like many popular destinations, In Southport the best vacation rentals are booked early. Booking your rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates is recommended, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and book your rental..

Select your Town and Travel Week

Start by deciding which particular area of Southport you'd like to visit, and the determine dates you'll be vacationing.

Selecting an Properly-Sized Rental property

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Bear in mind that a lot of vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room space. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for the family. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available online. Otherwise, email or call the property manager before you book.

Decide on Your Budget

Make sure "Walk downtown from this beautiful 1850 Antebellum home" suits your price range *during your desired dates*. If several individuals or families are sharing the cost, check that each group knows their obligation and has approved a maximum they are willing to contribute. Most rental agreements call for a single person to be liable for the full reservation.

Let's Talk Amenities

What amenities is the group looking for? Is a screened porch a necessity? Do you wish to be far from the crowds, or close to a city setting? Are items like beach chairs, gas grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included in your rental property charge? Make a list of "needs and wishes" from your group to help narrow your search to the most appropriate property.

Special Factors to consider

In some cases the senior generation has problems with stairways. Be sure to remember and ask about wheelchair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Think About 4-Legged Family Members?

Are you or other members of the gang travelling with a four-legged friend? Pet policies are different at each rental. Study descriptions carefully. Study your agreement carefully! Extra fees may apply when pets are added.

Its Time to Search

Once the location, travel dates and family members are decided, search multiple sources for the greatest rental home selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rental homes" for local rental management companies. Local agencies often times have a unique selection of rental properties daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

When you've spotted the rentalhome of your dreams, make sure your trip dates are available.

While not true for all rental homes, many owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season trip, try getting an additional night. Off-peak weeks will be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

Read The Agreement

Read the entire contract and make sure you fully understand who is responsible for:

  • Utilities
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

Make sure your quote includes all taxes and fees.

Cancelling your Vacation Property

Ensure you are familiar with the cancellation policy prior to booking. Property management companies and individual property owners often offer their clients the option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives reassurance should catastrophe strike.

Reserve It

After you think you've identified "the one", start the reservation process. You will likely be asked to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Get Contact Details

Put the property manager's contact info into your cell phone and wallet for convenient access to answers during your visit.

Congratulations! All that is left is making the most of your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any problems soon after you arrive. We also suggest immediately phoning the rental home manager with a report of any problems, together with your request for any needed repairs.
  • When there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, condo access, swimming pool functions, etc... we advise you ask the rental home manager immediately. A quick phone call avoids many complications.
  • Remember to be a good neighbor. Residents most likely live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a vacation substantially more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Residents are a terrific source of suggestions.
  • Make sure you protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the vacation rental secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • Double-check every space of the vacation property to make sure that you've packed all possessions.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental home one final time and look for property damage. If you can, do this walk-out assessment with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your rental? Just about all vacation rental management companies and vacation rental websites make it easy for travellers to provide feedback. If your vacation rental and/or property manager was terrific, they will likely appreciate your praise. If anything was disagreeable and they failed to correct it in a reasonable manner, or when the property was not as described, you may want to make it a point as part of your review.

Iterate

Hold a vacation recap meeting with your travel companions. Did everybody have a blast? Hopefully this guide steered you to a terrific rental unit. If not, you've gained valuable experience that will help with the next search.

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.
