The Rental Process

You may be shocked to learn just how many rentals are available at your destination. With such a wide selection, guests are certain to find a rental home that meets their desires and spending budget.

Virtually all rental properties in Carolina Beach are privately operated and many are represented by well-known local rental management companies. For property owners not directly involved with the management of their home, management companies are critical in helping families with reserving, check-in, cleaning, as well as routine maintenance issues that may arise.

Seasoned Carolina Beach vacationers have figured out several tips and tricks over the years when it comes to renting rentals, however many novices will be happy to know that many of these "methods" are in plain sight, if you know where to search.

Searching for and reserving the best vacation property:

Before you book "Welcome to Southern Sands, abeautiful two bedroom condo in the heart of Carolina Beach with amaz", review our brief collection of factors to consider.

Begin Your Search Early

Like many trendy hot spots, In Carolina Beach the best vacation homes are booked very early. To guarantee the best selection of vacation homes, we recommend searching and reserving your Carolina Beach rental 6-12 months before your travel dates, whenever feasible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and reserve your rental..

Find your Area and Confirm Dates

Consensus can be tricky between members of the family, but the moment this challenging part is complete everything will start to slide in place.

Select a Size

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Try to remember that most properties advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the family room. You will need to figure out what is acceptable for the party. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually accessible online. Otherwise, contact the property owner before you reserve the home.

Determine Your Budget

Does the preferred rental home fit your budget during that popular Summer week? If multiple individuals or loved ones are sharing the cost, always make sure each group knows their obligation and has approved a maximum they are prepared to chip in. Normally, a single member of the group will be in charge of making the full reservation and getting each family member's contribution.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What amenities is your family looking for? Do you want a rental property with outside dining area? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or night life? Does the unit have bicycles and beach toys available throughout your stay? Make a list of prioritized "necessities and preferences" from your group to help filter your search to the perfect rental.

Accessability

Elderly family members will thank you for not reserving a stairs-only condo on the 3rd floor. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is necessary, factor that into your search. Most vacation home postings include a list of amenities.

Take the Dog

Are you or other people in the group traveling with a furry companion? Animal friends are welcome at a number of vacation rentals, but policies can vary. Many restrictions might eliminate a potential rental property. Ensure that you read agreements and contracts carefully. Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. Ask questions *before* you book!

Where to Search

A number of websites exist to match renters with property owners.. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Carolina Beach local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local companies often have a unique collection of rental properties daily and weekly.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to be certain the property has everything that you need. If it is lacking, the rental management company may know of very similar homes that better fit your style and budget..

While not true for all rental homes, many owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable stay, try getting an additional night. Your easiest prospects for a lower rate will be switching to a less desirable week.

Read the Entire Contract

It is advisable to know which services are included:

  • Utility bills
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash collection

  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

Get a total that includes taxes, pet and other additional fees.

Trip Insurance

Cancellation policies vary with each rental. Many vacation property agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It offers peace of mind should tragedy strike.

Book It

As soon as you think you've identified "the one", start the reservation process. Bear in mind that most rental agreements require a substantial rental down payment and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation home owner.

Know Who to Call

Put the property manager's contact information into your smartphone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your visit.

Congratulations! All that is left is making the most of your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. To make sure no damages are linked to your stay, make a record of any problem areas of the rental. We also suggest promptly calling the rental manager with a report of any wear and tear, together with your request for any critical repairs. This can prevent disagreements during checkout.
  • You could need instructions for a fireplace, Television or hot tub. Call your rental manager. They are there to help. A brief phone call helps prevent many headaches.
  • Be respectful of the local community. Many times, adjacent residences are occupied by permanent locals. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a visit much more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Natives are a terrific source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to get the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Remember to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured while you are away, just like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Tidy up a bit. Even though you're spending money on a house cleaning fee, The rental needs to be in good condition. Kitchen sinks brimming with dishes, excessive beach sand on the floor and sticky messes should really be addressed prior to leaving.
  • As soon as everything is out, perform a walk-through of the rental to make sure no damage occurred in the course of your stay. We recommend walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your stay? Many vacation rental management companies and rental websites permit customers to give comments. If the rental and/or property manager was top notch, they'll appreciate your positive reviews. If something went wrong, we advise being kind but genuine regarding your experience. The best owners and managers will work very hard to solve the problem.

Learn from your Stay

Hold a meeting with the members of your group. Did everyone have a good time? We hope this guide helped you find a fantastic vacation home. Otherwise, you have acquired invaluable rental search experience to aid with the next search.
