Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Find the tourism bureau where you want to vacation. Many tourism bureaus will send tourism guides with special offers for rental properties, restaurants and activities. These guides may provide an excellent start to your vacation rental search.
  • Are you willing to modify your travel dates? Shoulder seasons special offer amazing prices.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Some management companies provide discounted prices to veterans and active-duty forces. Be sure to confirm with property manager to see if your visiting gang qualifies for a reduction.
  • Is there a specific activity you are mainly looking forward to during your stay? Be sure to prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and landmarks you are most looking forward to.
  • Give thought to getting trip insurance with your leasing agreement. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental rate, offers guests reimbursement of their vacation costs for any missed as a result of personal medical emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unforeseen hotel stay or extra fuel.

How to Book a Rental Home

Many people are shocked to learn just how many rentals are located in Southport. Rental home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of essential research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Rental homes are often owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Property owners often choose management companies to facilitate promoting and advertising, housekeeping services and maintenance tasks.

We have put together a short guide to help you get the most out of your vacation rental experience.

Searching for and booking the best rental property:

Do you think "Pelican Watch 105: Oceanfront on 2nd floor , 3BR, 2BA, Sleeps 8, pool, hot tub!" is the perfect rental for your upcoming trip? Look over this check list to ensure it fits your needs.

Search Early and Often

Southport vacation homes book months (and up to a year) in advance. Reserving your vacation property 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, whenever possible. Holiday reunions are a great time for groups to plot their Summer vacations..

Find your Area and Choose Dates

Begin by choosing which specific area of Southport you want to browse, and the choose travel dates.

Just How Many Beds?

Determine who is traveling, and just how many/what sort of bedroom setup you need to have. Be aware that most rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to figure out what is acceptable for your party. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available online. If not, email or call the property owner before you book.

Exactly What Are You Willing to Shell out?

Most rental properties are marketed with a cost range. Confirm the price for your chosen stay. It might be at the top end of the range. Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from company well before booking a costly rental property. One individual in your party will need to be given the task of getting contributions and accepting responsibility for the complete rental price at time of booking.

Compose a list of "Wishes" and "Requirements"

What amenities is your family trying to find? Is a pool reallynecessary?Do you want a vacation property with open-air dining area? Will the unit need to be oceanfront, in the downtown area, or in close proximity to wildlife? Does the home have bicycles and body boards available as part of your stay? Make a list of "needs and wishes" from your party to help filter your search to the most suitable rental.

Accessibility and Special Concerns

Do certain people in your crew have specific needs? If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are required, factor that into your search. Nearly all rental postings include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Make sure to include your furry family members. Even though many rental homes permit dogs and cats, guidelines and fees fluctuate per property. A number of constraints could eliminate a potential rental. Study your agreement thoroughly! Extra fees may apply when pets are included.

Searching the Internet

Many internet resources exist to match guests with property owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Southport local rentals" for local rental management companies. Aside from having exclusive properties, local agencies offer top-notch service..

Negotiate the Price

When you have found your dream rental, make sure your vacation dates are available.

Although not true for all rental properties, many rental owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season week, try asking for an extra night. Off-peak weeks will likely be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

Study the Total Agreement

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

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Space

In addition to the normal rate, vacationers will have to pay local taxes when renting "Pelican Watch 105: Oceanfront on 2nd floor , 3BR, 2BA, Sleeps 8, pool, hot tub!", as well as various other fees which may be required depending on their situation, including a pet fee, earlier check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private swimming pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Trip Insurance

Ensure that you are familiar with the cancellation policy before booking. You'll likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives comfort should disaster strike.

Complete the Reservation

When everything looks right, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. Remember that most rental contracts will require a considerable rental down payment and/or security deposit to cover the vacation home owner.

Where to Get Help

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

Congrats! All that is left is making the most of your visit!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any problems soon after you arrive. If you discover damage, or if repairs are required contact the home manager right away. If there is a disagreement about responsibility later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be incredibly helpful.
  • You could need instructions for a gas fireplace, TV or spa. Get in touch with your rental manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save several hours of problems.
  • Don't forget to be a good neighbor. Often, adjacent residences are lived in by permanent locals. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Locals are a great source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great date night, or the best spots for night life?
  • Enjoy your stay! Be sure to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

Check Out Time

  • Make sure you've packed all your things. Sweep each room in the house for forgotten possessions. Inspect bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, backyards, the pool area, and anywhere else your gear might "hide".
  • Make a point to walk through the rental one final time and check for damage. We recommend walking through with the rental manager whenever feasible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you feel about your stay? Many rental websites seek reviews after your stay . Rental owners and property managers will appreciate your favorable critiques. If anything went wrong, we advise being kind but straightforward with regards to stay. Top property owners and managers will work hard to fix the issue.

Learn from your Experience

Does everyone want to go back? Hopefully everything turned out to be fantastic and you are excited to reserve the property for next season. Maybe the rental was not ideal, and you'll better recognize how to refine your search for the next trip.

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.

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.
