How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Find the tourism bureau in the area you wish to travel. Many established tourism bureaus offer travel guides with deals for vacation rentals, restaurants and attractions. These guides can provide a good start to your vacation rental search.
  • Able to change your travel dates? Off-peak times provide remarkable markdowns.
  • Many rental companies and owners offer discount rates for active and veteran men and women of the US Military, or repeat vacation goers to the same rental. Make sure to confirm with property owner to see if your visiting crew is eligible for a discount.
  • Some rentals are practically designed to serve particular travelers, whether it's beachfront homes with fishing pier passes, city-center condos with close access to restaurants or waterfront homes that have their own boat launching areas. You'll receive the most value from a home that most thoroughly satisfies your ideal holiday setting, even if it costs a bit extra.
  • Management companies and individual property owners frequently offer customers the option to obtain trip insurance coverage. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you anywhere between 1% - 5% of the basic stay rate, offers visitors reimbursement of their trip costs for any nights missed as a consequence of medical-related emergencies or hurricanes, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unforeseen motel stay or extra gas. Trip insurance can be a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

How to Book a Vacation Home

First-timers are sometimes shocked at the number and wide variety of short term rentals available in the Carolina Beach area. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rental properties available allows them to find an suitable getaway to fit their Carolina Beach crew, from calm condominiums to gigantic event homes with several bedrooms.

Vacation homes are often owner operated or managed by rental management companies. For property owners not directly involved with the management of their property, management companies are critical in helping families with booking, check-in, housekeeping services, as well as maintenance issues that may occur.

We've developed a short guide to assist you in getting most from your rental home experience.

Searching for and booking the best rental home:

Do you believe ""Shore is Beautiful" 5 Bedroom/2 Bathroom, Ocean Front Home w Exceptional Views." is the best rental property for your next vacation? Look over this check list to ensure it fits your preferences.

The Sooner, The Better

Carolina Beach vacation rentals are reserved several months (and up to a year) in advance. Booking your rental home 6-12 months in advance is highly recommended, whenever possible. Many groups plan to begin their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve holiday gatherings.

Select your Place and Travel Week

Oftentimes, the most challenging part of preparing for your vacation is deciding on where to go, and when. As soon as the big decisions are tackled, the rest becomes much easier.

Just How Much Vacation rental Do You Actually Need?

Confirm who is going, and just how many/what kind of bedroom setup you'll need. Bear in mind that most rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room space. It is important to determine what is acceptable for your party. Generally rental home listings will describe each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

What Exactly Are You Willing to Pay?

Confirm that ""Shore is Beautiful" 5 Bedroom/2 Bathroom, Ocean Front Home w Exceptional Views." works with your budget *during your desired week*. If a few individuals or relatives are sharing the cost, ensure each group understands their obligation and has approved a maximum they are prepared to contribute. Most of the time, just one member of the group will be liable for making the full reservation and getting each person's contribution.

Make a List of "Wants" and "Needs"

What amenities is the family interested in? Do you primarily desire a vacation home with a pool, spa tub or volleyball court? Do you want to be away from it all, or close to a city setting? Does the unit have bicycles and body boards available during your stay? Make a list of prioritized "needs and desires" from your group to help filter your search to the perfect rental.

Accessibility and Special Things to consider

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

Go ahead and Take the Dog

Do not forget to include your best friend! Pet guidelines are different at each rental property. Study descriptions thoroughly. Many limitations may eliminate a prospective vacation property. Read your contract thoroughly! Additional fees or costs may be applied to your contract.

Start the Search

. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Carolina Beach local rental homes" for local property management companies. Local agencies generally have a unique assortment of rental homes daily and weekly.

Negotiate

When you've identified the rentalhome of your dreams, make sure your travel dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If they are hesitant to budge on a highly-desirable stay, try asking for an extra night. This is most effective during the off-peak season when many properties sit empty.

Read Through The Contract

You really need to know which services are included:

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Phone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)

Cancellation Policies

Cancellation policies vary for each vacation rental. Many rental contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance guards the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It provides relief should catastrophe strike.

Reserve your Rental Property

Know Who to Call

Put the rental manager's contact info into your cell phone and wallet for easy access to answers during your visit.

During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. To ensure that no damages are linked to your visit, make a record of any trouble spots of the rental. If you discover damages, or if repairs are needed contact the rental manager straight away.
  • Ask questions. If there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the house, house access, swimming pool functions, etc... we suggest you ask the property manager promptly. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
  • Make sure to be a good neighbor. Permanent residents probably live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your home.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a good source of advice. Who better to ask where to order the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best areas for night life?
  • Make sure you protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the vacation home secured while you are away, just like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • You should make sure you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cabinetry and closets.
  • Be sure to walk through the rental home one last time and look for damage. We advise walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (this isn't always the case).. If the property owner is not available, make sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your vacation? Nearly all rental home websites seek testimonials after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will thank you for glowing ratings. If anything was wrong and they did not fix it in a reasonable manner, or if the rental home was not as described, you will want to note that as part of your critique.

Use Your Experience

Does everyone want to return next year? Maybe everything turned out to be outstanding and you're ready to reserve the same rental home for next season. Otherwise, you have acquired valuable rental search experience to help with another search.
