Money-saving Tips

  • Many property managers and vacation rental houses provide Southport area traveller discount catalogs which include coupons, either offered independently by merchants, or by way of a relationship between the management company and the itself. These guides may provide a good start to your rental search.
  • Are your travel dates changeable? Off-peak times offer sizable savings.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Armed forces may be eligible for special discounts. Make sure to confirm with property manager to see if your travelling crew is eligible for a markdown.
  • Is there a specific experience that you are mainly looking forward to ? You should prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and sight-seeing opportunities you are most interested in.
  • Think about investing in trip insurance with your lease contract. Trip insurance, which usually add anywhere between 1% - 5% of the basic term cost, offers buyers reimbursement of their trip costs for any missed resulting from personal health emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unplanned hotel stay or additional gasoline.

How to Book a Vacation Home

Newcomers are oftentimes shocked at the number and variety of short term vacation rentals available in the Southport area. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of global search sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Rentals are often owner operated or managed by property management companies. Property owners typically select management companies to facilitate advertising and marketing, housekeeping services and maintenance tasks.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have identified several tips and tricks throughout the years with regards to renting rental homes, however most novices will be delighted to realize that several "techniques" are in plain sight, if you know where to look.

How to find and book the right vacation rental:

Do you think "Lovely 3BR, 2 BA Oak Island Sea Cottage" is the best rental home for your next vacation? Read through this checklist to make sure it fits all of your needs.

The Sooner You Start, The Better The Choices

Southport vacation homes book many months (and up to a year) in advance. Booking your rental property 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your rental home..

Pick a Village and Time

Begin by deciding which specific area of Southport you'd like to explore, and the choose travel dates.

How Much Rental home Do You Actually Need?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Keep in mind that many rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. You'll need to determine what is acceptable for the party. Generally vacation home listings will outline each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Establish Your Budget

The majority of vacation homes are marketed with a price range. Determine the cost for your preferred stay. It might be at the high end of the range. Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from loved ones prior to reserving an expensive vacation property. Most rental contracts call for a single individual to be liable for the entire reservation.

Make a List of "Wishes" and "Necessities"

What property features is the family looking for? Do you want a rental home with outside lounge? Does the unit need to be oceanfront, in town, or near wildlife? Are extras like beach chairs, barbecue grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers available and included in your rental property payment? Make a list of priority features to help filter your search.

Special Things to consider

Oftentimes the senior generation has challenges with stairs. Make sure you remember and ask about wheelchair entry, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Go ahead and Take the Dog

Are you or other members of the crew travelling with a dog? Although quite a few rentals allow pets, rules and fees vary per rental. Type of pet, size and breeds might be restricted. Study your contract very carefully! Extra fees or costs may be applied to your contract.

Searching the Internet

. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rental homes" for local vacation rental management companies. Local property management companies proudly offer a top-quality vacation experience.

Negotiate

When you have located your dream rental, double check to make sure your trip dates are available.

While not true for all properties, many rental owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. This is most effective during the off-peak season when many homes sit vacant.

Study the Total Contract

You will have to know which services are included:

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

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

Cancelling your Rental

Make sure you understand the cancellation policy prior to reserving. Many rental home contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance protects the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives you comfort should disaster strike.

Reserve It

When everything seems correct, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. You will probably need to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Get Contact Details

Make sure you get the manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We recommend keeping the contact's information 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 immediately upon arrival. We also recommend immediately getting in touch with the rental home manager with a report of any problems, together with your request for any needed repairs.
  • You could need guidance for a gas fireplace, Television set or jacuzzi. Call your rental manager. They are there to help. A quick phone call helps prevent many complications.
  • Be respectful of the community. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a trip a good deal more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a terrific source of tips.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make certain to protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the home locked up while you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Make sure you've packed all your things. Sweep all the rooms in the home for forgotten items. Inspect bath rooms, the garage, kitchen cupboards, outdoor patios, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make sure to walk through the rental one last time and look for damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager whenever feasible (this may not be possible).. If the property manager is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy yourself? Many rental home management companies and rental home sites make it easy for customers to offer comments. If your rental and/or property manager was top-notch, they will appreciate your compliments. If something went wrong, we advise being pleasant but completely honest in regards to your experience. Top owners and managers will work hard to solve the issue.

Iterate

Hold a debrief with your family. Does everyone want to go back? With a little luck everything turned out to be ideal and you are all set to re-book the rental for your next vacation. Otherwise, you have acquired useful rental search experience to help with another search.

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.
