Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Many property managers and vacation rental properties provide Southport area travel books that feature promotions, either offered individually by vendors, or by way of a relationship between the management company and the local merchant itself. Look for these catalogs and coupon books, since this allows visitors to enjoy the very same fantastic attractions at a frequently substantial discounted.
  • Wish to stay away from the crowds of people? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of high prices.
  • Are you a military veteran? Many property management companies offer unique discounts to veterans and active-duty forces. Make sure to confirm with property management company to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a special offer.
  • Some properties are practically designed to serve particular customers, whether it is soundside units with fishing pier passes, city-center homes with close access to shopping or waterfront homes that have their own kiteboarding launching areas. Make sure that you prioritize your proximity to the family activities and interesting attractions you are most interested in.
  • Vacation rental companies and individual rental owners often offer their clients the option to obtain trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base rental rate, provides visitors reimbursement of their rental expenses for any missed as a consequence of health related emergencies or storms, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unanticipated hotel room stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens .

General Rental property Advice

First-timers are oftentimes surprised at the number and wide range of short term properties available in the Southport area. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of online search sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Vacation rentals are usually owner operated or managed by property management companies. For property owners not directly involved with the management of their rental home, management companies are instrumental in assisting guests with booking, checking-in, housekeeping services, and any routine service problems that may arise.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have figured out a few tips and tricks over the years with regards to renting vacation homes, however most novices will be delighted to know that many of these "tricks" are in plain sight, if you recognize how to search.

How to find and reserve the perfect vacation rental:

Do you think "Our Ocean Retreat - Enjoy an ocean view and a private pool!" is the perfect rental for your next visit? Browse through this checklist to confirm it fits your needs.

Start Your Search Early

Like many popular vacation spots, In Southport the best rental homes are booked early. To ensure the best choice of properties, we advise searching and reserving your Southport rental home 6-Twelve months before your travel dates, whenever possible. Holiday gatherings are a great time for groups to plan their Summer family vacations..

Find your Spot and Establish Dates

Quite often, the most challenging part of planning your trip is figuring out where to search, and when. When the big decisions are hammered out, everything else will be much easier.

Just How Much Vacation rental Do You Actually Need?

How many family members are planning to share your vacation? Be aware that a lot of homes list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living area. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for your family. Generally rental listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Commit to a Spending Limit

Does your favorite vacation property fit your budget during that preferred Summer week? If many groups or loved ones are sharing the cost, make sure each person knows their obligations and has approved a maximum they are prepared to chip in. Most rental contracts require a single individual to be responsible for the whole reservation.

Property Amenities

What amenities is the group interested in? Are you looking for a rental home with outside kitchen? Does the property need to be oceanfront, downtown, or close to restaurants? Are items like beach chairs, barbecue grills, umbrellas, beach carts or coolers at your disposal and included with your rental property charge? Make a list of prioritized "necessities and wants" from your party to help narrow your search to the perfect home.

Special Things to consider

Adequate access could make or ruin a trip for the less-mobile. Make sure that you remember and ask about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Make sure you include your companion! Even though quite a few rentals permit pets, rules and fees fluctuate per rental. A number of limitations could dismiss a potential vacation property. Examine your contract very carefully! Extra charges may apply when animals are included. When in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Start your Search

Several internet resources exist to match visitors with property owners.. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Southport local vacation homes" for local vacation rental management companies. Local companies usually have an exclusive selection of vacation homes daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

When you've located the rentalhome of your dreams, make sure your vacation dates are available.

Some rental home owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Your greatest possibility of a lower rate is shifting to a less desirable week.

Read the Contract

Read through the full agreement and be certain you are aware who is responsible for:

  • Electric bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the standard fee, travelers will need to pay state taxes when renting "Our Ocean Retreat - Enjoy an ocean view and a private pool!", along with any other additional fees which might be required based upon their situation, including an animal charge, early check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heat fee for private pool usage during the fall or spring months.

If you need to Cancel

Ensure you be aware of the cancellation policy before booking. You'll likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental price, can provide travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any days missed as a consequence of personal medical related emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unexpected hotel stay or additional gas.

Complete the Booking

When everything looks correct, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. Do not forget that most rental agreements require a considerable rental deposit and/or security deposit to cover the vacation rental owner.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

Put the rental manager's contact information into your phone and wallet for quick access to answers throughout your trip.

Good luck on booking your rental home! You're on the right path to a fabulous vacation!

During your Stay

  • Record the overall condition of the rental property immediately upon arrival. We also recommend immediately calling the rental home manager with a report of any problems, along with your request for any critical repairs. If there is a disagreement about responsibility later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts should be very helpful.
  • Should there be any ambiguity about parking, policies of the property, house access, pool functions, etc... we recommend you ask the rental home manager immediately. A brief phone call avoids many head aches.
  • Be respectful of the local community. Permanent 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 residence.
  • Ask a local. Locals may point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great date night, or the best areas for night life?
  • Make certain to protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation home secured when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

At the end of your stay

  • Check to make sure you've packed all of your belongings. Sweep every room in the home for forgotten items. Check bathrooms, the garage, cabinets, porches, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one last time and look for property damage. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever feasible (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a great time? Just about all vacation rental management companies and vacation rental websites permit travellers to offer reviews. If the vacation rental and/or property manager was outstanding, they will appreciate your praise. If anything went wrong and they did not correct it in a acceptable manner, or if the rental was not as described, you will want to make it a point in your comments.

Learn from your Experience

Did everyone have a blast? Hopefully this guide steered you to a terrific rental unit. Maybe the rental was not perfect, and you'll better understand how to perfect your search for the next trip.

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.
