About this Property

Smile and Wave. New to Vacation Rental By Owner and the rental market in 2021! Our second row beach home has been freshly refreshed and we can't wait to share this family friendly home with you! We are located on the east side of Sea Isle Beach about 1 mile from the center of town. Our home is steps away from the beach access so its very simple to run back and forth to the home for anything you may have forgotten!

Our reverse floor plan optimizes sea vistas in the space that you will be spending most of your time. The open family room, dining room, and kitchen offer radiant vistas of the sea. With 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, Smile and Wave sleeps up to 14 people so we have plenty of room for you, your family, and your friends. There are 2 master bedrooms (one on the top floor and one on the first floor) each offering King beds and their own bath. The 3 remaining bedrooms are all on first floor along with two additional bathrooms. Each level includes a huge outdoor space spanning the width of the home for inviting or dining . All bedrooms have TVs with Roku devices so you can sign in to any streaming service that you like. There is a generous, private outdoor shower to rinse off in after a day at the beach!

For families with modest children, our home is supplied with a infant gate, pack and play, booster seat, high chair, umbrella stroller, and a variety of beach toys.

How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Many property managers and rental homes supply Southport area traveller discount magazines which include coupons, either offered individually by local companies, or by a partnership between the management company and the local business itself. Look for these catalogs and coupon books, because this allows visitors to experience those attractions at a sometimes substantial discounted.
  • Prefer to stay away from crowds of people and reduce costs? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of peak fees.
  • Are you a military veteran? Several management companies offer discounted prices to veterans and active-duty forces. Make sure to ask vacation rental company to see if your travelling gang qualifies for a reduced price.
  • Some properties are particularly designed for specific types of vacationers. Large event homes are perfect for weddings, receptions and corporate escapes. Some rentals cater to beach bums. Other rentals are positioned close to nightlife. You should prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and landmarks you are most interested in.
  • Property management companies and individual rental home owners generally offer their guests an opportunity to purchase trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic stay rate, offers vacationers reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any days missed resulting from health emergencies or storms, and additionally ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unanticipated motel stay or extra gasoline.

How to Book a Rental Home

You might be surprised to find out how many rental homes are available at your destination. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of essential search sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

Rentals are commonly owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Property management companies are popular with property owners because they manage the online marketing and operations..

We've assembled a short guide to assist you in getting most from your rental experience.

Searching for and booking the perfect rental:

Do you think "Newly remodeled second row home with beautiful views and steps to the beach!" is the best vacation property for your next family vacation? Browse through this guide to confirm it fits all of your preferences.

Search Early and Frequently

Southport rentals start booking very early. For the greatest selection, start your planning and search 6-Twelve months in advance of a trip. Many visitors choose to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve gatherings.

Select your Area and Vacation Week

Agreement can often be complicated between family, but the moment this complicated part is finished everything will quickly slide in place.

How Much Rental home Do You Need?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Bear in mind that most rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You will need to determine what is most appropriate for the group. Generally vacation home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Stay on a Budget

Make sure "Newly remodeled second row home with beautiful views and steps to the beach!" satisfies your budget *during your desired dates*. Be sure to get cost-sharing commitments from company before booking an expensive rental. One member of your party must be responsible for gathering contributions and accepting responsibility for the complete rental fee at time of booking.

Make a List of "Preferences" and "Necessities"

What amenities is your family interested in? Is a screened porch a necessity? Are you more enthusiastic about a natural landscape or amusements? Does the rental have bikes and beach toys available throughout your stay? Make a list of prioritized "needs and desires" from your party to help narrow your search to the most appropriate property.

Accessibility and Special Circumstances

Optimal accessibility could make or break a visit for the less-mobile. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is necessary, include that into your search. The majority of vacation home listings include a list of amenities.

Paws-Friendly, Please

Be sure to include your companion! Pets are welcome at many rental homes, but guidelines can vary. Ensure that you study descriptions and contracts carefully. Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. Ask questions *prior to* you book!

Searching the Internet

Once the location, dates and attendees are decided, search multiple sources for the very best rental selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local rental home management companies. Besides having exceptional properties, local agencies offer top-notch service..

Negotiate

When you have spotted the rentalhome of your dreams, check to confirm your trip dates are available.

Although not true for all properties, many rental owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Your best chance for a reduced rate is switching to a less desirable week.

Read the Total Agreement

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

  • Power bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the normal charge, vacationers will need to pay local taxes when renting "Newly remodeled second row home with beautiful views and steps to the beach!", in addition to any other fees which may be required depending on their circumstances, including a dog fee, earlier check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heating fee for private swimming pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Do you know the Cancellation Policy?

Cancellation policies are different for each property. Vacation home management companies and rental owners typically offer their clients the option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs between 1% - 5% of the standard rental home rate, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any days missed a result of personal hospital emergencies or weather, and additionally hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unexpected motel stay or extra gas.

Book your Rental

Once you feel you've found "the one", begin the reservation process. You'll likely be asked to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Keep Your Contact's Info

Put the property manager's contact info into your smartphone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout 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 damages when you arrive. Call the rental manager immediately to report your observations. This will prevent conflicts during check out.
  • Ask questions. Should there be any ambiguity about parking, policies of the property, property access, swimming pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental manager immediately. A quick phone call helps prevent many hassles.
  • Be respectful of the local community. Often, adjacent residences 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 home.
  • Ask a local. Local residences may point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best areas for shopping?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the vacation home locked up while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • Tidy up a lttle bit. Even when you're having to pay a house cleaning fee, The rental should be in good shape. Kitchen sinks filled with pots and pans, surplus sand on the floors and sticky messes should really be remedied before you leave.
  • When your things are all out, begin a walk-through of the property to make sure that no property damage occurred during your stay. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever possible (this may not be possible).. If the property owner is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you feel about your choice? Virtually all rental management company websites request testimonials after your stay . Owners and rental managers will appreciate your positive reviews. If something went wrong, we advise being pleasant but honest regarding your stay. Top owners and managers will try very hard to rectify the issue.

Use Your Experience

Hold a debrief with your travel companions. Did they love their vacation? If everything was outstanding, next year's trip planning will be easy. Maybe the rental was not quite right, and you will better recognize how to perfect your search for the next trip.

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.
