Tips to Save Money on your Rental

  • Many management companies and vacation rental houses supply Wilmington, NC area travel discount guides which feature promotions, either offered independently by local companies, or via a relationship between the property manager and the store itself. Keep an eye out for these publications and coupon books, because this allows visitors to enjoy the same wonderful attractions at a sometimes significantly discounted.
  • Are you willing to alter your travel week? Off-peak times offer substantial savings.
  • A number of management companies and owners offer rate reductions for active duty and veteran members of the U.S. Military, or returning individuals to the same property. Make sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your vacationing crew qualifies for a discounted price.
  • Some vacation rentals are basically designed to serve specific travelers, whether it's soundside units with fishing pier passes, city-center condos with close access to restaurants or waterfront homes that have their own boat launching areas. Be sure to prioritize your proximity to the outdoor activities and points of interest you are most excited about.
  • Property management companies and individual property owners often offer clients an opportunity to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay cost, provides travellers reimbursement of their travel expenses for any days missed as a result of medical-related emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected motel stay or extra fuel.

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 ideal retreat to suit their Wilmington, NC gang, from low-noise condominiums to grand event homes with several bedrooms.

The vast majority of vacation rentals in Wilmington, NC are privately operated and many are represented by experienced local rental management companies. Vacation home management companies leverage scale, equipment and experience to provide simple and easy operational management on behalf of the owner..

Below are great tips and tricks to help you understand the vacation home search and booking process.

Where to find and reserve the best rental property:

Before you decide to book "1 Block from BEACH-Beautiful & Clean-4 Bedroom/2.5 Bath Home-Sleeps 9", review our brief collection of points to consider.

Start Your Search Early

Wilmington, NC vacation rentals are reserved months (and up to a year) in advance. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months before your travel dates is highly recommended, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental home..

Pick your Area and Travel Week

Consensus can be tough between members of the family, but the moment this difficult part is finished everything will quickly fall in place.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

How many family members are planning to share your getaway? Bear in mind that most rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to determine what is most appropriate for the party. Most rental listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

Determine Your Budget

Does your selected vacation property suit your budget during that prime Summer week? If a few individuals or families are sharing the cost, be certain that each group understands their responsibilities and has approved a maximum they are willing to pay. A single member of your family will have to be responsible for collecting payments and accepting responsibility for the entire rental payment at time of reservation.

Its All About Amenities

What home features is the group interested in? Are you looking for a rental with outside lounge? Will the property need to be beachfront, the downtown area, or near night life? Are bed linens included with the rental, or will you need to bring your own? Create a list of priority conveniences to facilitate narrow your search.

Accessibility and Special Things to consider

Do individual people in your crew have specific needs? If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is required, include that into your search. Almost all vacation home postings will include a list of amenities.

Your Puppy Deserves a Vacation, Too

Do not forget to include your companion! Pet guidelines are different at each property. Study descriptions thoroughly. Type of pet, size and dog breeds might be limited. Read your contract thoroughly! Additional charges may apply when animals are included.

Searching the Internet

Many internet resources exist to match vacationers with property owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Wilmington, NC local rental properties" for local vacation home management companies. Local vacation rental management companies proudly offer a first-class rental experience.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to confirm the vacation home has everything that you need. If something is missing, the rental home management company might know of comparable homes that fit your style and budget..

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Your best possibility of a lower rate is changing to a less desirable week.

Study the Total Contract

Read the full agreement and be certain you understand who is responsible for:

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Telephone service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Service
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

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

Cancelling your Rental property

Ensure you understand the cancellation policy before booking. Many rental home contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance guards the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives you relief should catastrophe strike.

Reserve It

As soon as you feel you've found "the one", begin the reservation process. Do not forget that most rental contracts will require a substantial rental down payment and/or security deposit to protect the home owner.

Keep Your Contact's Information

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

Good job on reserving your vacation home! You're on the right path to a wonderful vacation!

During your Stay

  • To assure no damages are linked to your visit, make a record of any problem areas of the property. If you find property damage, or if repairs are required get in touch with the home manager straight away. This can prevent disagreements during checkout.
  • Ask questions. If there is any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, property access, pool functions, etc... we advise you ask the property manager promptly. A brief phone call avoids many problems.
  • Don't forget to respect your nearby neighbors. . Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Local residences can frequently 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 wildlife?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental home locked up while you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Check to make sure you've packed all of your possessions. Sweep each room in the home for left-behind items. Inspect bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, patios, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your gear might "hide".
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one last time and look for property damage. We recommend walking through with the property manager wherever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, remember to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you feel about your stay? Most vacation rental management companies and rental home sites make it easy for customers to provide feedback. If your property and/or property manager was excellent, they'll appreciate your positive reviews. If anything went wrong and they didn't fix it in a reasonable manner, or if the rental home wasn't as described, you'll want to note that as part of your feedback.

Learn from your Stay

Hold a debrief with your traveling companions. Does everyone want to re-book next year? If everything was perfect, next year's trip planning is going to be painless. Otherwise, you've acquired useful experience that will help with the next search.

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.
