Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Many property managers and vacation properties supply Southport area promotional travel books which include offers, either offered individually by local companies, or through a partnership between the property manager and the local store itself. These guides may provide a great start to your vacation rental search.
  • Willing to alter your travel week? Shoulder seasons offer fantastic savings.
  • Are you a military veteran? Many management companies offer concessions to veterans and active-duty servicemembers. Make sure to confirm with property manager to see if your visiting crew is eligible for a reduced price.
  • Is there a particular activity that you are most getting excited about during your stay? You should prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and tours you are most interested in.
  • Give thought to investing in trip insurance along with your rental contract. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental price, provides visitors reimbursement of their travel expenses for any missed as a consequence of personal medical emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or additional gasoline. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

The Rental Process

You may be shocked to learn just how many vacation rentals are available at your destination. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of international search sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

The vast majority of rentals in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by experienced local rental management agencies. Owners often choose management companies to assist with online advertising, house cleaning and routine maintenance.

Seasoned Southport vacationers have discovered several tips and tricks throughout the years with regards to renting rentals, however most beginners will be delighted to find that several "strategies" are in plain sight, if you understand where to search.

Where to find and reserve the best rental home:

Do you believe "Spacious, Well-equipped, Oceanfront Home in Ideal Location on South Beach" is the perfect rental home for your upcoming family vacation? Read this check list to confirm it fits your needs.

The Sooner, The Better

Like many popular destinations, In Southport the best vacation rentals are booked very early. To guarantee the most desirable selection of properties, we suggest searching and booking your Southport getaway 6-12 months in advance, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and book your vacation rental home..

Choose a Community and Time

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

Choose a Size

How many family members are planning to share your vacation? Remember that that most rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You will need to figure out what is suitable for the family. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available online. Otherwise, contact the property owner before you book.

Establish Your Budget

Make sure that "Spacious, Well-equipped, Oceanfront Home in Ideal Location on South Beach" satisfies your budget *during your desired dates*. Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from loved ones before booking an expensive rental. Generally, one member of the group will be in charge of making the complete reservation and recovering each family member's contribution.

Make a List of "Wants" and "Requirements"

What home features is your group trying to find? Do you want a rental with outdoor kitchen? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or close to civilization? Are items like beach chairs, grills, umbrellas, carts or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental home charge? Gather a list of "needs and preferences" from your group to help narrow your search to the most suitable property.

Special Issues

Elderly family members will appreciate you for not reserving a stairs-only condominium on the Third floor. Make sure you remember and inquire about wheelchair access, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

Your Dog Needs a Holiday, Too

Don't forget to include your companion! Animal guidelines are different at each rental. Read descriptions carefully. Type of animal, size and dog breeds may be restricted. Examine your contract carefully! Additional fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. Ask questions *before* you reserve!

Searching the Internet

Many websites exist to match clients with property owners.. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local rental properties" for local property management companies. Local vacation rental management companies take pride in an exceptional vacation experience.


Re-read the description to be certain the vacation home has everything required. If something is missing, the property management company might know of very similar properties that suit your wishes and budget..

Some rental home owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If they are hesitant to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try getting an additional night. This is most effective through the off-peak season when many properties sit empty.

Read the Entire Agreement

Read through the entire contract and make certain you understand who is liable for:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

Get a total that includes state taxes, animal and other extra fees.

Trip Insurance

Be sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy before reserving. You'll probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs between 1% - 5% of your standard rental home price, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any nights missed due to personal medical-related emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unforeseen motel stay or extra gas.

Book It

After you feel you've identified "the one", begin the reservation process. Keep in mind that most rental contracts require a substantial rental deposit and/or security deposit to protect the rental home owner.

Get Contact Info

Make sure to get the manager's contact telephone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We suggest keeping the contact's information in your cell phone and wallet.

Congratulations on reserving your vacation rental! You're on the right path to a fabulous vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any wear and tear as soon as you arrive. We also recommend immediately getting in touch with the property manager with a report of any damage, along with your request for any required fixes. If there is a disagreement about legal liability later, having the documented problems and contact attempts will be valuable.
  • Ask questions. When there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the house, house access, pool operation, etc... we recommend you ask the property manager immediately. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
  • Remember to be a good neighbor. . Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a good source of advice.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure to protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the property locked up while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Check Out Time

  • Make sure you've packed all of your things. Sweep every room in the house for left-behind possessions. Check bathrooms, the garage, cabinets, porches, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make sure to walk through the rental one last time and check for damages. If you can, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your vacation rental? Many rental management company web sites seek feedback after your stay . Owners and rental managers will appreciate your favorable critiques. If something went wrong, we suggest being kind but honest regarding your experience. Top property owners and managers will try very hard to rectify the situation.

Learn from your Experience

Did everybody have a blast? If everything was wonderful, next year's family vacation planning will be relatively easy. If not, you have gained useful rental search experience to aid with the 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.

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.
