Wallet-Friendly Tips

  • Search for the official tourism bureau where you want to travel. Many established tourism bureaus offer tourism guide books with promotions for vacation rental management companies, restaurants and activities. These guides provide a good start to your vacation rental search.
  • In a position to change your travel dates? The off-peak shoulder seasons frequently offer amazing rates on weekly rentals.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the U.S. Armed forces may be qualified for discounted prices. Make sure to ask property owner to see if your vacationing crew qualifies for a rate reduction.
  • Is there a specific activity you are mainly looking forward to ? You should prioritize your proximity to the adventures and interesting attractions you are most interested in.
  • Property management companies and individual rental owners typically offer clients an opportunity to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the basic stay cost, offers guests reimbursement of their travel costs for any nights missed as a result of personal medical emergencies or hurricanes, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unexpected motel stay or extra gasoline. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

You might be pleasantly surprised to uncover how many rental properties are available at your destination. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of vacation homes available makes it possible to find an ideal getaway to fit their Southport crew, from relaxed condos to giant event homes with several bedrooms.

The majority of vacation rentals in Southport are privately operated and many are represented by established local rental management companies. Vacation rental management companies leverage scale, systems and knowledge to provide effortless operational administration on behalf of the property owner..

Seasoned Southport vacationers have discovered a number of tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting vacation homes, however many novices will be happy to know that many of these "methods" are in plain sight, if you recognize where they should search.

Searching for and booking the best rental property:

Do you believe "Top of the Stairs -- Family Friendly, Clean, Oceanview, Pool, 1 Bedroom/2 Bath" is the best vacation property for your next visit? Read this check list to ensure it fits your preferences.

The Earlier You Begin, The Better The Choices

Southport rental homes book several months (and up to a year) in advance. To ensure the best choice of vacation rentals, we recommend searching and booking your Southport getaway 6-12 months in advance, whenever possible. A lot of groups plan to start their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.

Decide on a Village and Time

Begin by choosing which particular area of Southport you would like to visit, and the choose dates you'll be vacationing.

Exactly How Much Vacation rental Do You Really Need?

Confirm who is going, and how many/what particular bedroom setup you'll need. Remember that that many vacation rentals list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to figure out what is acceptable for your family. Generally rental listings will outline each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Stay on a Budget

Many rental homes are advertised with a cost range. Determine the price for your chosen trip. It may be at the high end of the range. If several individuals or family members are sharing the cost, always make sure that each group knows their responsibility and has approved a maximum they are prepared to pay. Typically, a single member of the group will be liable for making the whole reservation and recovering each person's share.

Let's Talk Amenities

What amenities is your family interested in? Is a swimming pool reallynecessary?Do you want a vacation property with outside kitchen? Will the unit need to be beach front, the downtown area, or in close proximity to shopping? Are extras like beach chairs, barbecue grills, beach umbrellas, carts or coolers at your disposal and included in your rental property rate? Gather a list of prioritized "necessities and desires" from your company to help filter your search to the most suitable home.

Accessability

Do certain members of your group have specific needs? If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are needed, factor that into your search. Nearly all vacation rental listings will include a list of amenities.

Have You Considered Furry Family Members?

Are you or other members of the party travelling with a pup? While quite a few rentals permit animal friends, guidelines and costs fluctuate per rental. A number of constraints could dismiss a prospective rental property. Ensure that you study agreements and contracts carefully. Service fees may apply when animals are included. Ask questions *before* you book!

Start your Search

A number of websites exist to match clients with rental owners.. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Southport local vacation rentals" for local property management companies. Local rental home management companies proudly offer an exceptional vacation experience.

Negotiate

When you have identified the rentalhome of your dreams, check to confirm your travel dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season stay, try getting an additional night. Off-peak weeks will likely be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Go Through The Contract

Read the entire agreement and make certain you fully understand who is liable for:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

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

If you want to Cancel

Make sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy prior to booking. You'll probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance safeguards the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives peace of mind should tragedy strike.

Reserve your Rental Home

When everything looks correct, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. Bear in mind that most rental contracts require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to cover the vacation home owner.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

Make sure you get the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental home. We recommend saving the contact's information in your smartphone and wallet.

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. To make certain no damages are attributed to your visit, create a record of any trouble spots of the property. If you discover damages, or if repairs are needed get in touch with the property manager immediately. This will protect against conflicts during check out.
  • You could need instructions for a gas fireplace, Television set or spa. Call your property manager. They are there to help. A quick phone call avoids many head aches.
  • Don't forget to respect your neighbors. Residents often live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a trip substantially more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Natives can frequently point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make certain to protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Double-check each room of the vacation property to assure you've gathered all valuables.
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental home one last time and check for damage. We advise walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, make sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you feel about your stay? Most property management companies and rental home sites allow travellers to provide reviews. If the rental home and/or property manager was excellent, they will likely appreciate your compliments. If anything went wrong and they failed to correct it in a practical manner, or when the property wasn't as described, you may want to make it a point in your critique.

Iterate

Hold a debrief with your travel companions. Did they love their vacation? If everything was fantastic, next year's trip planning is going to be painless. Maybe the property wasn't quite right, and you'll better know how to improve your search for the next vacation.

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. Choose from luxury oceanfront houses and condos to more reasonbly priced 2nd row properties with oceanviews. 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.
