Parking Notes: You may park directly in front of the home. If there is a covered parking area and your car is modest enough to fit underneath it, you may use this during your stay. Parking on the street and/or sidewalks is stringently prohibited and may result in a violation ticket or towing.

How to get the best deal on your rental

  • Many management companies and rental houses supply Southport area travel books that feature money-saving deals, either offered independently by local companies, or by way of a relationship between the property manager and the business itself. Search for these guides and coupon books, as this allows vacation goers to experience the very same fantastic activities at a considerable discounted.
  • In a position to alter your travel week? Off-season rates are usually a fraction of top prices.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Many vacation rental companies offer price savings to veterans and active-duty forces. Be sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your travelling crew is eligible for a reduction.
  • Some properties are essentially designed to serve specific customers, whether it is downtown rentals with pier passes, city-center condos with close access to shopping or waterfront homes that have private windsurfing launching areas. You will definitely get the most value from a rental which most thoroughly satisfies your ideal trip setting, regardless if it costs a bit extra.
  • Think about getting trip insurance with your lease contract. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic term rate, offers buyers reimbursement of their rental costs for any days missed resulting from medical-related emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unplanned motel stay or extra gasoline.

The Rental Process

Many people are shocked to learn the number of rental homes can be found in Southport. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of vacation rentals available makes it possible to find an ideal getaway to accommodate their Southport crew, from low-noise condominiums to large event homes with several bedrooms.

Rentals are often owner operated or managed by property management companies. Owners frequently select management companies to assist with advertising, house cleaning services and maintenance.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have identified a handful of tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting vacation rentals, however most novices will be happy to learn that several "tips" are in plain sight, if you understand where to look.

Searching for and booking the best rental property:

Do you think "Canal-Front Family House w/ Pier, Floating Dock, AC, Washer/Dryer, Patio & WiFi!" is the best vacation property for your next getaway? Read through this check list to ensure it fits all of your preferences.

Search Early and Often

Southport rental homes book several months (and up to a year) in advance. For the greatest selection, begin your planning and search Six-12 months before your vacation. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and book your vacation rental home..

Find your Spot and Establish Dates

Begin by choosing which specific area of Southport you'd like to explore, and the choose dates you'll be vacationing.

How Much Rental home Do You Need?

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Remember that that many properties list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room. You will need to figure out what is acceptable for the family. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available online. If not, get in touch with the property owner before you book.

Establish Your Budget

Make sure "Canal-Front Family House w/ Pier, Floating Dock, AC, Washer/Dryer, Patio & WiFi!" satisfies your budget *during your desired dates*. Make sure to get cost-sharing commitments from company well before reserving a pricey rental home. One individual in your party must be responsible for getting contributions and acknowledging responsibility for the whole rental price at time of booking.

Let's Talk Amenities

What property features is your group searching for? Is a screened porch a requirement? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or nightlife? Are mattress sheets offered with the rental, or do you need to bring your own? Make a list of priority conveniences to guide filter your search.

Accessability

Suitable access could make or ruin a visit for the less-mobile. Make certain to remember and ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

Think About 4-Legged Family Members?

Are you or other members of the crew traveling with a dog or cat? Animal policies are different at each property. Study descriptions carefully. Type of animal, size and breeds can be limited. Study your agreement thoroughly! Extra fees or costs may be applied to your agreement. When in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

It Is Time to Search

Several internet resources exist to match renters with property owners.. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local vacation rentals" for local rental management companies. Local companies often times have an exclusive collection of rentals daily and weekly.

Negotiate

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

While not true for all properties, many owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable week, try getting an additional night. The off-season offers your best chance to negotiate a lower rate.

Read the Total Agreement

Find out which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Utilities
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

Make sure your price includes all taxes and fees.

Cancellation Policies

Cancellation policies are different with each rental. Vacation home management companies and property owners typically offer their guests the choice to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which frequently costs ranges from 1% - 5% of the standard rental cost, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental home costs) for any days missed a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated motel stay or additional gas.

Book your Rental

When everything looks right, it's finally time to sign a rental agreement. Keep in mind that most rental agreements will require a substantial rental deposit and/or security deposit to cover the home owner.

Keep Your Contact's Info

Put the property manager's contact information into your smartphone and wallet for easy access to answers during your stay.

Good job on reserving your vacation rental! You're on your way to a fantastic vacation!

During your Stay

  • Record the overall condition of the rental property immediately upon arrival. If you find problems, or if fixes are needed contact the home manager without delay.
  • You may need guidance for a gas fireplace, Television or spa. Call your property manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
  • Be respectful of the community. Residents most likely live within earshot. 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 people are a fantastic source of tips. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great date night, or the best places for night life?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure that you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation home secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Always make sure you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cabinets and wardrobes.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one last time and look for property damage. We recommend walking through with the rental manager whenever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your vacation? Many rental home management companies and rental search sites allow renters to give reviews. If your property and/or property manager was outstanding, they'll appreciate your compliments. If something was disagreeable and they didn't fix it in a reasonable manner, or when the rental was not as described, you should note that in your critique.

Iterate

Hold a debrief with your family. Does everybody want to return next year? We hope this guide helped you find a great vacation rental. Otherwise, you've acquired useful experience that will help with your 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.

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.
