The Sooner, The Better

Like many popular hot spots, In Southport the best vacation rentals are booked very early. Booking your rental property 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, when possible. A lot of households prefer to begin their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.

Pick a Town and Time

Quite often, the hardest part of preparing for your trip is choosing where to go, and when. When the big decisions are resolved, the rest is much easier.

How Many Beds?

Confirm who is attending the vacation, and how many/what type of bedroom setup you'll need. Try to remember that most vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the home's living room. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for the company. Most vacation home listings will describe each of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

Commit to a Budget

Make sure that "Pet friendly private ocean frontcottage nestled in peaceful Caswell Beach" fits your budget *during your desired week*. If multiple groups or family members are sharing the cost, always make sure that each group understands their obligation and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to pay. Most of the time, a single person in the group will be liable for making the complete reservation and getting each person's contribution.

Let's Talk Amenities

What amenities is the family searching for? Do you only want a vacation home with a swimming pool, hot tub or beach volleyball court? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or near a city setting? Does the property have bikes and beach toys available as part of your stay? Create a list of priority conveniences to guide filter your search.

Special Issues to consider

Do a few members of your party have special needs? Make certain to remember and ask about wheel chair access, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

What About 4-Legged Family Members?

Are you or other people in the family visiting with a dog? Pet guidelines are different at each property. Read descriptions thoroughly. Study your agreement carefully! Extra fees or costs may be applied to your contract.

Best places to Search

A number of internet resources exist to match visitors with property owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local vacation rentals" for local property management companies. Local vacation home management companies pride themselves on a top-quality rental experience.

Negotiate

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

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Your greatest prospects for a lower rate is switching to a less desirable week.

During your Stay

  • Photograph on your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental property immediately upon arrival. Call the rental manager right away to report your observations. This can prevent disagreements during checkout.
  • Ask questions. If there is any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, property access, swimming pool operations, etc... we advise you ask the property manager immediately. A phone call can save hours of hassle.
  • Be respectful of the local community. Often times, surrounding homes are filled by permanent residents. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Residents are a terrific source of tips.
  • Be sure to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Double-check every room of the vacation property to make sure that you've gathered all possessions.
  • Once everything is out, begin a walk-through of the rental to confirm no damage occurred in the course of your remain. If you can, do this walk-out review with the property manager present. If the property manager is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Virtually all rental home sites ask for feedback after your stay . Property owners and rental managers will thank you for glowing ratings. If something went wrong, we advise being pleasant but completely honest about your stay. Top property owners and managers will work hard to solve the problem.

Learn from your Stay

Hold a vacation recap meeting with the members of your group. Did everybody have a good time? If everything was perfect, next year's vacation planning will be relatively easy. If the property was not quite right, and you will better recognize how to perfect your search for the next time.
