Wallet-Friendly Tips

  • Search for the tourism bureau in the area you want to travel. Most tourism bureaus will send printed tourism guides with special deals for vacation rentals, dining and activities. Search for these books and promotional books, because this allows visitors to take advantage of the same fantastic activities with a generally substantial discounted.
  • Are you willing to alter your dates? The off-peak seasons will offer you fantastic rates on weekly rentals.
  • A number of property management companies and owners offer price reductions for active and veteran members of the U.S. Armed forces, or repeat guests of the same rental home. Be sure to check with property owner to see if your visiting gang qualifies for a discount.
  • Some rentals are essentially catered to specific guests, whether it is downtown homes with pier passes, city-center condos with walkable access to restaurants or waterfront homes that have private boat launching areas. Make sure to prioritize your proximity to the activities and tours you are most excited about.
  • Think about investing in trip insurance together with your leasing contract. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental rate, provides travellers reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any missed resulting from personal medical-related emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unplanned motel stay or extra gasoline. Trip insurance can be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs (heaven forbid!).

The Rental Process

First-timers are often surprised at the number and variety of short term rentals available in the Carolina Beach area. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of worldwide research sites like Homeaway and VRBO.

The majority of vacation rentals in Carolina Beach are privately operated and many are represented by established local rental management agencies. Owners often choose management companies to facilitate promoting and advertising, housekeeping services and regular maintenance.

Seasoned Carolina Beach vacationers have figured out a number of tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting rental properties, however many newcomers will be happy to know that many of these "strategies" are in plain sight, if you recognize where they should look.

Finding and booking the right rental property:

Do you believe "Ocean Front at 365 W. First - elevator, private pool, private walk to the beach" is the best rental for your upcoming family vacation? Look over this guide to make sure it fits your needs.

Start Your Search Early

Carolina Beach vacation rentals start booking early. To ensure the greatest selection of vacation rentals, we advise searching and reserving your Carolina Beach vacation home Six-Twelve months before your travel dates, whenever possible. Holiday reunions can be a popular time for families to plan their Summer vacations..

Find your Area and Identify Dates

Oftentimes, the toughest portion of organizing your trip is deciding on where to search, and when. As soon as the big decisions are tackled, everything else becomes simpler.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

How many family members are planning to share your vacation? Be mindful that most rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the family room. You'll need to determine what is acceptable for the company. Most rental home listings will describe each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

What Exactly Are You Willing to Pay?

Will the preferred rental home fit your budget during that choice Summer week? If several individuals or families are sharing the cost, make sure that everyone understands their obligations and has approved a maximum they are willing to pay. Normally, just one member of the group will be in charge of making the full reservation and recovering each person's share.

Vacation home Amenities

What home features is the group trying to find? Do you want a rental home with open-air dining area? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or close to civilization? Are sheets included with the rental agreement, or do you need to take your own? Build a list of priority features to guide filter your search.

Accessibility and Special Considerations

Do individual people in your group have specialized needs? Be sure to remember and ask about wheelchair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment requirements..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Are you or other people in the group traveling with a pet? Animal friends are welcome at a number of rental homes, but guidelines differ. A number of restrictions could eliminate a prospective rental home. Read your agreement thoroughly! Additional fees or costs may be applied to your agreement.

Start your Search

As soon as the location, travel dates and people are decided, search multiple sources for the best rental home selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Carolina Beach local rental properties" for local rental home management companies. Besides offering exclusive rental properties, local companies offer you superb service..

Negotiate the Price

When you have found the rentalhome of your dreams, double check to make sure your trip dates are available.

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season week, try getting an additional night. Your greatest chance for a lower rate will be changing to an off-season week.

Read The Contract

Read the whole contract and make sure you fully understand who is responsible for:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

Make sure your quoted fee includes all taxes and fees.

Cancellations Happen

Make sure you be aware of the cancellation policy prior to reserving. Vacation home management companies and individual rental owners typically offer their guests the option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance guards the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives peace of mind should disaster strike.

Book your Rental Property

As soon as you think you've found "the one", begin the booking process. You'll likely be required to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Keep Your Property Manager's Info

Put the property manager's contact info into your smart phone and wallet for convenient access to answers during your visit.

Congrats on reserving your rental! You're on the way to a fantastic vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental property right away. Get in touch with the rental manager immediately to report your observations. If there is a disagreement about responsibility later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will be valuable.
  • Should there be any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the property, house access, swimming pool functions, etc... we recommend you ask the rental manager promptly. A phone call can save several hours of difficulty.
  • Please be respectful of the local community. Natives should be as friendly to you as you are considerate of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking restrictions can make a vacation significantly more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Locals are a fantastic source of advice. Who better to ask where to get the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best spots for wildlife?
  • Enjoy your stay! Remember to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental home locked up while you are away, exactly like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Tidy up a lttle bit. Regardless of whether you're having to pay a housekeeping fee, The vacation home should really be in good shape. Sinks full of pots and pans, excessive sand on the floor and sticky messes should be dealt with before you leave.
  • Make sure to walk through the rental home one final time and look for damage. We advise walking through with the rental manager whenever feasible (often this isn't possible).. If the property manager is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your rental? Nearly all rental home websites seek testimonials after your stay . Owners and property managers will thank you for favorable reviews. If anything went wrong, we advise being understanding but honest with regards to your stay. The best owners and managers will work very hard to rectify the issue.

Iterate

Did everyone have a good time? With a little luck everything ended up being ideal and you're excited to reserve the same rental for your next vacation. Otherwise, you've acquired useful rental search experience that can help 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.

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.
