Wallet-Friendly Tips

  • Many management companies and vacation rental homes provide Southport area promotional magazines that feature deals, either offered individually by merchants, or utilizing a relationship between the property manager and the itself. Keep an eye out for these catalogs and coupon books, since this allows visitors to discover the very same great attractions with a considerable discounted.
  • Can you switch your trip dates? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of high costs.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Quite a few rental companies offer markdowns to vets and active-duty servicemembers. Be sure to confirm with vacation rental company to see if your visiting crew qualifies for a reduced price.
  • Is there a certain experience that you are mainly anticipating during your stay? You'll get the best value from a home which most directly satisfies your ideal vacation setting, regardless if it costs a bit extra.
  • Property management companies and individual property owners typically offer their guests an option to purchase trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually add somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic rental price, offers buyers reimbursement of their trip costs for any missed due to health-related emergencies or storms, as well as ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unplanned hotel stay or additional gasoline. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

How to Book a Rental Home

Many people are shocked to learn the number of properties are available in their area of interest. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of global research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

Nearly all vacation rentals in Southport are privately owned and many are represented by established local rental management companies. Vacation rental management companies leverage scale, technology and working experience to provide hassle-free operational administration on behalf of the homeowner..

Below are great tips and tricks to help you understand the vacation home search and booking process.

Finding and reserving the perfect rental:

Do you believe "The Hulk Upper - 3BR 2.5Ba Classic Oceanfront Cottage" is the best rental for your upcoming vacation? Read this checklist to confirm it fits your needs.

The Earlier, The Better

Southport rental homes start booking early. For the best selection, start your planning and search Six-12 months prior to a trip. Many families prefer to start their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve holiday gatherings.

Choose your Town and Travel Week

Oftentimes, the most challenging part of preparing for your trip is deciding on where to go, and when. When the big decisions are hammered out, the rest is simpler.

How Many Beds?

Establish who is attending the vacation, and just how many/what kind of bedroom setup you need to have. Bear in mind that a lot of vacation rentals list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the home's living room. It is important to determine what is suitable for your group. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available on the internet. If not, contact the property manager before you reserve the home.

Establish Your Budget

Does the preferred rental suit your budget during that choice Summer week? If many individuals or family members are sharing the cost, make sure each group knows their responsibility and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to chip in. A single member of your company must be responsible for collecting contributions and accepting responsibility for the whole rental price at time of reservation.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What home features is the family searching for? Is a screened-in porch a necessity? Are you more enthusiastic about a natural landscape or nightlife? Are items like beach chairs, grills, beach umbrellas, beach carts or coolers at your disposal and included with your rental fee? Gather a list of prioritized "necessities and wishes" from your company to help filter your search to the perfect property.

Special Factors to consider

Frequently the senior generation has challenges with stairways. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are needed, factor that into your search. The majority of rental home postings will include a list of amenities.

Take the Dog

Are you or other individuals in the party visiting with a domestic pet? Even though quite a few rentals permit dogs and cats, rules and charges fluctuate per property. Examine your contract very carefully! Extra charges may apply when pets are included. When in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Where to Search

. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Southport local rentals" for local rental home management companies. Local property management companies pride themselves on a top-quality rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to confirm the home has everything you need. If something is missing, the vacation rental management company might know of very similar properties that fit your preferences and budget..

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season week, try asking for an extra night. Negotiating rates is more effective through the off-peak season when many homes sit vacant.

Read through the Entire Contract

Read through the entire agreement and make certain you are aware who is liable for:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

Make sure your quoted fee includes all state taxes and fees.

Cancellations Happen

Cancellation policies are different with each rental. You'll probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance protects the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives you relief should disaster strike.

Book your Rental Property

When you believe you've identified "the one", begin the booking process. You'll probably be required to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

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

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your visit!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Take notes of any wear and tear when you arrive. We also recommend promptly calling the property manager with a report of any wear and tear, along with your request for any needed fixes. If there is a dispute about liability later, having the documented problems and communication attempts will probably be useful.
  • Ask questions. If you have any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, property access, swimming pool functions, etc... we suggest you ask the rental home manager immediately. A quick phone call prevents many hassles.
  • Please be respectful of the neighborhood. Residents are likely to be as friendly to you as you are considerate of them. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your home.
  • Ask a local. Natives are a good source of suggestions.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the vacation home secured when you are away, just like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Double-check each room of the rental home to assure you've gathered all personal belongings.
  • As soon as everything is out, do a walk-through of the property to make certain no damage occurred during your remain. When possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property manager is not available, be sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your rental home? Many rental sites ask for comments after your stay . Rental owners and rental managers will thank you for favorable recommendations. If something was wrong and they didn't fix it in a reasonable manner, or if the rental home was not as described, you'll want to make it a point in your critique.

Iterate

Did they love their stay? Hopefully this guide helped you find a great rental. If not, you have gained invaluable rental search experience to aid with your next search.

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.
