Money Saving Strategies

  • Search for the tourism bureau where you want to vacation. Many tourism bureaus offer promotional travel guide books with special deals for rental management companies, dining and tours. These guides provide a good start to your rental home search.
  • Flexible about when you can vacation? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of high prices.
  • Are you a military veteran? Many management companies provide discounted prices to vets and active-duty forces. Be sure to ask property management company to see if your visiting crew is eligible for a markdown.
  • Is there a particular experience you are mainly longing for during your stay? If there's a certain Southport atteaction that you love, search for rentals that cater especially to you.
  • Management companies and individual property owners often offer customers an option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally add anywhere between 1% - 5% of the basic stay rate, provides vacationers reimbursement of their trip expenses for any missed as a consequence of medical-related emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unanticipated hotel room stay or extra gas.

How to Book a Vacation Home

You might be surprised to find out just how many rental properties are available at your destination. 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 suitable retreat to suit their Southport family, from restful condominiums to grand event homes with several bedrooms.

The vast majority of rental homes in Southport are privately operated and many are represented by established local property management companies. Rental owners often choose management companies to facilitate internet marketing, house cleaning and routine maintenance.

We have constructed a short guide to assist you in getting most out of your rental home experience.

How to find and reserve the perfect vacation rental:

Before you start to book "Live Like a Local in Carolina Beach", read through our short list of factors to consider.

The Earlier You Start, The Better The Choices

Southport vacation rentals start booking early. Reserving your vacation property 6-12 months in advance is highly recommended, when possible. Holiday reunions are a popular time for family groups to plot their Summer family vacations..

Find your Spot and Choose Dates

Start by deciding which specific area of Southport you prefer to visit, and the approximate travel dates.

Choosing an Adequately-Sized Rental

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Keep in mind that a lot of rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to figure out what is acceptable for your family. Generally rental home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Establish Your Budget

Most rental homes are presented with a price range. Determine the cost for your desired stay. It may be at the top end of the range. If a few individuals or family members are sharing the cost, check that each party knows their obligation and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to contribute. Generally, one person in the group will be in charge of making the full reservation and getting each party's contribution.

Compose a list of "Wants" and "Necessities"

What property features is the group interested in? Is a screened porch a requirement? Will the unit need to be beachfront, in town, or in close proximity to shopping? Does the property have bikes and body boards available for use as part of your stay? Make a list of priority features to guide narrow your search.

Special Factors to consider

Grandparents will thank you for not renting a stairs-only condominium on the 3rd floor. Make certain to remember and inquire about wheel chair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment requirements..

Your Dog Needs a Holiday, Too

Do not forget to include your best friend! Animals are welcome at a number of rentals, but guidelines can vary. Be sure you study agreements and contracts carefully. Extra charges may apply when animals are included. Ask questions *prior to* you book!

It Is Time to Search

. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local vacation homes" for local property management companies. Local companies will often have an exclusive collection of vacation rentals daily and weekly.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to be certain the vacation home has everything you need. If something is missing, the vacation rental management company might know of comparable homes that better fit your style and budget..

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

Read through the Entire Agreement

Read through the entire contract and make certain you are aware who is liable for:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

Get a total that includes taxes, pet and other additional fees.

What is the Cancellation Policy?

Be sure you be aware of the cancellation policy before booking. Rental home management companies and property owners typically offer their guests the choice to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance guards the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives peace of mind should disaster strike.

Complete the Booking

As soon as you think you've found "the one", start the booking process. You'll likely have to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Where to Get Help

Make sure to get the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental. We recommend saving the contact's details in your smart phone and wallet.

Congrats! All that is left is making the most of your visit!

During your Stay

  • Record the condition of the rental property right away. If you find damages, or if repairs are needed contact the home manager straight away.
  • Ask questions. If you have any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, house access, swimming pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the property manager immediately. A quick phone call helps prevent many problems.
  • Make sure to be a good next-door neighbor. Locals are likely to be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. 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 can often point you in the right direction.
  • Make certain to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Check to make sure you've packed all your belongings. Sweep all the rooms in the house for left-behind possessions. Inspect bathrooms, the garage, cabinets, backyards, the pool area, and anywhere else your gear might "hide".
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental home one final time and look for damage. If you can, 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? Just about all vacation rental management companies and rental home sites make it easy for renters to offer comments. If the property and/or property manager was terrific, they will appreciate your compliments. If anything went wrong, we suggest being kind but genuine about your experience. Top property owners and managers will try very hard to rectify the problem.

Learn from your Experience

Did everybody have a blast? If everything was outstanding, next year's family vacation planning is going to be quick. If not, you have acquired valuable experience that can help with the next 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.

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.
