How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Search for the official tourism bureau where you want to vacation. Many tourism bureaus supply printed guide books with special offers for lodging, restaurants and tours. Keep an eye out for these magazines and coupon books, as this allows vacationers to experience those fantastic attractions with a quite often substantial discounted.
  • Are your travel dates flexible? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of peak fees.
  • Are you a military veteran? Some management companies provide price reductions to veterans and active-duty forces. Make sure to ask vacation rental company to see if your visiting crew is eligible for a markdown.
  • Some homes are primarily designed for specific groups of guests. Event homes are great for weddings, wedding parties and corporate escapes. Some rentals cater to wildlife enthusiasts. Other rentals are positioned close to nightlife. You will definitely get the best value from a home that most thoroughly satisfies your ideal holiday setting, even if it costs a tad bit more.
  • Vacation rental companies and individual rental owners commonly offer guests the chance to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally costs between 1% - 5% of the basic term price, provides vacationers reimbursement of their trip expenses for any nights missed a result of personal health related emergencies or weather, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unforeseen hotel room stay or extra gasoline. Trip insurance can be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

How to Book a Vacation Home

Some people are shocked to learn just how many rentals are available in their area of interest. Rental home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of online search sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Virtually all rentals in Southport are privately operated and many are represented by experienced local rental management companies. Owners often select management companies to assist with marketing, housekeeping and regular maintenance.

Here are some ideas and techniques to help you navigate the rental search and reservation process.

Finding and reserving the best rental home:

Do you believe "Magnificent sound front home with captivating water views" is the perfect rental property for your next getaway? Browse through this guide to ensure it fits all of your preferences.

The Earlier, The Better

Southport vacation homes book months (and up to a year) in advance. To guarantee the best selection of rental homes, we recommend searching and reserving your Southport getaway Six-Twelve months in advance, whenever possible. A lot of visitors choose to begin their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.

Select your Place and Travel Week

Agreement can be difficult among family members, but as soon as this tricky part is finished everything will quickly fall in place.

How Many Bedrooms?

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Consider that most vacation rentals list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living room space. It is important to figure out what is acceptable for the company. Most rental listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Commit to a Budget

The majority of vacation homes are presented with a cost range. Confirm the cost for your chosen stay. It may be at the high end of the range. Make sure you get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends well before booking a costly vacation property. Most rental contracts call for a single person to be responsible for the full reservation.

Rental Home Features

What amenities is your group trying to find? Do you simply want a property with a pool, spa or volleyball court? Do you wish to be away from it all, or near civilization? Are sheets included with the rental, or will you need to take your own? Build a list of priority amenities to guide narrow your search.

Special Conditions

Elderly family members will appreciate you for not reserving a stairs-only condo on the Third floor. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are necessary, include that into your search. Most rental listings include a list of amenities.

Your Dog Deserves a Vacation, Too

Make sure you include your pets. While many rental homes allow dogs, rules and costs vary per rental. Examine your agreement thoroughly! Extra fees or costs may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *before* you reserve!

Its Time to Search

Several websites exist to match vacationers with rental home owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Southport local vacation rentals" for local vacation rental management companies. Local rental management companies take pride in a superior rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

When you've located the rentalhome of your dreams, check to confirm your travel dates are available.

Some property owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Off-peak weeks will probably be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Read through the Entire Contract

You really should know which services are included:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

Make sure your quote includes all state taxes and fees.

Trip Insurance

Be sure to be aware of the cancellation policy before reserving. You'll probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the standard vacation rental rate, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any days missed as a consequence of personal health-related emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas.

Book your Rental

As soon as you feel you've found "the one", start the booking process. Remember that most rental contracts require a considerable rental down payment and/or security deposit to cover the vacation rental owner.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

Put the rental manager's contact info into your smart phone and wallet for quick access to answers during your visit.

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • To make sure no damages are associated with your stay, create a record of any problem areas of the rental. Get in touch with the rental manager right away to report your observations. If there is a disagreement about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will probably be useful.
  • Ask questions. If you have any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, condo access, swimming pool functions, etc... we suggest you ask the rental manager promptly. A brief phone call prevents many complications.
  • Be considerate of the local community. Many times, neighboring properties are filled by permanent residents. 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 may point you in the right direction.
  • Make sure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental locked up while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Check to make sure you've packed all of your personal belongings. Sweep every room in the home for left-behind possessions. Inspect bathrooms, the garage, cabinets, decks, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Once your things are all out, do a walk-through of the rental to make sure that no property damage occurred in the course of your stay. We advise walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your vacation rental? Just about all rental home management companies and rental websites permit renters to provide reviews. If the vacation rental and/or property manager was top notch, they'll appreciate your compliments. If something went wrong and they didn't correct it in a reasonable manner, or when the rental was not as described, you will want to note that as part of your critique.

Learn and Improve

How did they like the rental choice? Maybe everything was outstanding and you are excited to re-book the property for next year. Maybe the rental property wasn't ideal, and you'll better understand how to refine your search for the next vacation.

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.
