General Vacation Rental Tricks & Tips

First-timers are likely to be surprised at the range and wide variety of daily, weekly and monthly rentals available in the Wilmington, NC area. With such a big selection, clients are certain to discover a vacation home that fits their desires and price range.

Rental homes are frequently owner operated or managed by property management companies.

We've constructed a brief guide to assist you in getting most out of your rental home experience.

Finding and reserving the perfect rental property:

Before you book "503 Ocean Drive: Oceanfront 12 with Pool, Hot Tub, and Elevator!", go through our short list of factors to consider.

Start Your Search Early

Like many trendy destinations, In Wilmington, NC the best rental properties are booked very early. Reserving your rental property 6-12 months before your travel dates is recommended, when possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your rental home..

Pick a Town and Time

Agreement can be tricky among relatives, but as soon as this complicated part is finished everything will quickly fall in place.

Choosing an Correctly-Sized Vacation rental

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Bear in mind that many rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living area. You will need to figure out what is most appropriate for the party. Most rental home listings will outline each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Stick to a Budget

Make sure "503 Ocean Drive: Oceanfront 12 with Pool, Hot Tub, and Elevator!" satisfies your budget *during your desired dates*. If multiple individuals or family members are sharing the cost, be certain that everyone understands their obligations and has approved a maximum they are willing to contribute. One individual in your group must be given the task of collecting contributions and accepting responsibility for the entire rental fee at time of reservation.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is the family trying to find? Do you only want a vacation home with a swimming pool, spa tub or volleyball court? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or nightlife? Does the home have bicycles and beach toys available for use during your stay? Make a list of priority amenities to guide filter your search.

Accessibility and Special Concerns

Elderly guests will appreciate you for not reserving a stairs-only condominium on the 3rd floor. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is required, include that into your search. Most rental home listings include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Make sure you include your pets. While a number of vacation homes allow dogs, rules and fees vary per property. Type of animal, size and dog breeds could be limited. Ensure that you study descriptions and contracts carefully. Fees may apply when pets are added. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Where to Search

Once the area, time and family members are decided, search multiple resources for the very best rental selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Wilmington, NC local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Aside from offering exclusive rental properties, local companies offer top-notch service..

Negotiate

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

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some won't. If the price isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. The off-season offers your greatest opportunity to negotiate a lower rate.

Read the Total Contract

  • Electric bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV

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

What is the Cancellation Policy?

Ensure you are familiar with the cancellation policy before booking. Vacation home management companies and individual home owners typically offer their guests the choice to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance, which normally costs ranges from 1% - 5% of your standard vacation rental cost, provides vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental home costs) for any days missed a result of personal medical emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas.

Complete the Booking

When everything seems right, it's finally time to sign a rental agreement. Keep in mind that most rental contracts will require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to cover the rental owner.

Keep Your Contact's Info

Put the rental manager's contact info into your smart phone and wallet for quick access to answers throughout your stay.

Congrats! All that is left is making the most of your visit!

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any wear and tear right after you arrive. Contact the rental manager immediately to report your observations. This may protect against disputes during check out.
  • Ask questions. You could need guidance for a gas fireplace, TV or jacuzzi. Contact your rental manager. They are there to assist. A quick phone call avoids many head aches.
  • Make sure to be a good next-door neighbor. . Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking rules can make a vacation significantly more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Locals are a good source of tips. Who better to ask where to get the best pizza, have a great date night, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Enjoy your stay! Don't forget to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental home secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Check Out Time

  • Double-check every space of the rental property to ensure that you've collected all belongings.
  • When your things are all out, perform a walk-through of the rental home to be certain no property damage occurred in the course of your remain. Whenever possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you rate your experience? Just about all property management companies and vacation rental websites allow travellers to offer comments. If your rental and/or property manager was excellent, they will appreciate your compliments. If anything went wrong and they didn't correct it in a acceptable manner, or when the rental home wasn't as described, you will want to make it a point as part of your review.
