Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Find the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many established tourism bureaus will send promotional tourism guides with savings for rental home management companies, dining and tours. These guides provide a great start to your vacation rental search.
  • Are your trip dates changeable? Off-peak rates are usually a fraction of high prices.
  • Are you a military veteran? Quite a few rental companies offer price reductions to veterans and active-duty servicemembers. Be sure to confirm with property owner to see if your visiting crew is eligible for a special offer.
  • Some properties are primarily suited for specific groups of guests. Event homes are ideal for weddings, wedding receptions and corporate retreats. Some properties cater to beach bums. Other homes are positioned close to night life. If there's a certain Southport atteaction which you just love, search for properties that cater especially to your needs.
  • Management companies and individual home owners frequently offer clients the option to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay rate, offers visitors reimbursement of their rental expenses for any days missed as a consequence of personal medical related emergencies or hurricanes, and additionally ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected motel stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

How to Book a Vacation Home

Newcomers are likely to be shocked at the number and wide selection of weekly rental homes available in the Southport area. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of properties available makes it possible to find an perfect getaway to fit their Southport family, from relaxed condos to large event homes with several bedrooms.

Vacation homes are often owner operated or managed by property management companies. Property management companies are popular with owners because they manage the online marketing and operations..

Here are some ideas and techniques to help you understand the rental search and booking process.

Finding and reserving the perfect rental property:

Before you start to book "The Surf Shack: Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway Views.", go through our short checklist of points to consider.

The Earlier, The Better

Southport rental properties start booking early. Reserving your vacation property 6-12 months before your travel dates is recommended, when possible. A lot of households decide to start their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve gatherings.

Pick a Village and Date

Sometimes, the toughest portion of planning your vacation is deciding on where to go, and when. When the big decisions are hammered out, the rest will be simpler.

Just How Much Rental Do You Actually Need?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Try to remember that many homes list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for your company. Generally rental listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

What Exactly Are You Prepared to Pay?

Make sure "The Surf Shack: Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway Views." fits your price range *during your desired dates*. Make certain to get cost-sharing commitments from company before booking an expensive rental home. One individual in your group will need to be given the task of getting contributions and accepting responsibility for the complete rental payment at time of reservation.

Let's Talk Amenities

What property features is the family searching for? Do you only want a vacation rental with a swimming pool, hot tub or beach volleyball court? Do you wish to be away from it all, or near a city setting? Are items like beach chairs, barbecue grills, umbrellas, carts or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental home charge? Gather a list of prioritized "needs and wishes" from your party to help narrow your search to the perfect rental.

Accessibility and Special Circumstances

Do a few people in your group have special needs? Make sure to remember and ask about wheelchair access, pool lifts and special equipment needs..

What About 4-Legged Family Members?

Are you or other members of the gang travelling with a domestic pet? Animal friends are welcome at a number of vacation homes, but policies differ. Read your contract very carefully! Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *well before* you reserve!

Best places to Search

. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Southport local rentals" for local rental management companies. Local vacation rental management companies take pride in a top-quality rental experience.

Negotiate the Price

When you've found the rentalhome of your dreams, double check to make sure your vacation dates are available.

Although not true for all rental homes, many property owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Your best prospects for a lower rate is switching to a less desirable week.

Read the Entire Contract

You will have to know which services are included:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet
  • Phone service
  • Pool 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

Ensure that your price includes all state taxes and fees.

If you'd like to Cancel

Cancellation policies are different for each property. Rental home management companies and home owners typically offer their clients the option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs ranges from 1% - 5% of the base rental home price, provides vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any days missed a result of personal hospital emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unforeseen motel stay or extra gas.

Book It

When everything looks correct, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. Keep in mind that most rental agreements will require a substantial rental deposit and/or security deposit to cover the property owner.

Know Who to Call

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

Congratulations on booking your vacation rental! You're on your way to a terrific vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Record the condition of the rental unit right away. We also recommend promptly calling the rental manager with a report of any wear and tear, together with your request for any required fixes. If there is a difference of opinion about legal liability later, having the documented problems and contact attempts could be helpful.
  • You may need guidance for a gas fireplace, TV or spa tub. Contact your property manager. They are there to help. A phone call can save hours of hassle.
  • Remember to respect your nearby neighbors. . 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. Local people can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best places for shopping?
  • Remember to protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental secured when you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

At the end of your stay

  • Make sure you've packed all your belongings. Sweep all the rooms in the home for left-behind items. Inspect bath rooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, patios, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one final time and look for property damage. When possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Virtually all rental management company web sites seek reviews after your stay . Owners and property managers will thank you for favorable ratings. If anything went wrong, we advise being pleasant but honest in regards to your experience. The best owners and managers will work very hard to solve the problem.

Use Your Experience

Did everybody have a blast? We hope this guide steered you to a great home away from home. Maybe the rental was not perfect, and you'll better know how to improve your search next time.

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.

Many properties include pools and hot tubs as well, perfect for outdoor entertaining, and many are dog friendly.   Lanier also notes that all properties are within walking or driving distance to Pleasure Island’s main attractions – Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. 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.
