Money Saving Strategies

  • Find the official tourism bureau where you want to visit. Many official tourism bureaus will send travel guide books with special deals for accommodations, dining and activities. Keep an eye out for these books and coupon books, since this allows travelers to discover the very same fantastic attractions with a sometimes substantial discounted.
  • Desire to avoid the crowds? Shoulder seasons offer terrific savings.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Military may be able to get price reductions. Make sure to check with property management company to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a rate reduction.
  • Some properties are primarily suited for particular types of visitors. Large event homes are great for weddings, receptions and corporate meetings. Some rentals cater to wildlife enthusiasts. Other properties are positioned close to nightlife. You will definitely get the best value from a home that most directly suits your ideal trip setting, regardless if it costs a tad bit more.
  • Think about getting trip insurance with your leasing contract. Trip insurance, which generally add anywhere between 1% - 5% of the basic stay cost, offers guests reimbursement of their trip expenses for any nights missed a result of personal health-related emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unexpected hotel stay or extra gas.

The Rental Process

First-timers are likely to be shocked at the range and wide variety of daily, weekly and monthly vacation rentals available in the Wilmington, NC area. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of essential research sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

Rentals are frequently owner operated or managed by property management companies. Owners frequently choose management companies to facilitate web advertising, housekeeping services and maintenance tasks.

Below are some tips and tactics to help you navigate the vacation rental search and reservation process.

How to find and reserve the perfect rental property:

Do you believe "Beautiful, Remodeled, Charming 6 Bedroom/2.5 Bath, OCEANFRONT Home-Sleeps 15" is the best rental for your next visit? Browse through this check list to confirm it fits all of your needs.

The Sooner You Start, The Better The Selection

Wilmington, NC vacation homes book several months (and up to a year) in advance. To guarantee the very best selection of rental homes, we recommend searching and reserving your Wilmington, NC vacation home Six-12 months before your travel dates, whenever you can. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and reserve your rental home..

Find your Spot and Identify Dates

Quite often, the most challenging portion of organizing your vacation is choosing where to go, and when. When the big decisions are resolved, everything else becomes easier.

Choosing an Correctly-Sized Rental

Establish who is traveling, and how many/what particular bedroom configuration you will need. Consider that many properties advertise maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living room space. You will need to figure out what is acceptable for the company. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available online. Otherwise, contact the property manager before you book.

What Exactly Are You Prepared to Pay?

Will your favorite rental property suit your budget during that choice Summer week? Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from travel companions before reserving a pricey vacation property. One individual in your party needs to be given the task of collecting repayments and acknowledging responsibility for the whole rental price at time of reservation.

Vacation home Features

What amenities is the family trying to find? Are you looking for a vacation property with open-air kitchen? Will the unit need to be beach front, the downtown area, or near restaurants? Are bed linens included with the rental agreement, or do you need to provide your own? Make a list of prioritized "necessities and wishes" from your party to help filter your search to the most appropriate home.

Accessability

Elderly guests will thank you for not reserving a stairs-access-only condo on the Third floor. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is necessary, factor that into your search. Almost all rental postings will include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Remember to include your furry family members. Pets are welcome at many rental homes, but policies differ. Type of pet, size and dog breeds may be controlled. Make sure that you read agreements and contracts carefully. Service fees may apply when pets are added. Ask questions *well before* you book!

Its Time to Search

Once the location, time and attendees are decided, search multiple resources to find the best vacation rental selection. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Wilmington, NC local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local agencies will have a unique collection of vacation homes daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

When you have identified your dream rental, check to confirm your vacation dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Negotiating rates is more effective throughout the off-season when many properties sit vacant.

Go Through The Contract

Discover which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the regular rate, vacationers must pay state taxes when renting "Beautiful, Remodeled, Charming 6 Bedroom/2.5 Bath, OCEANFRONT Home-Sleeps 15", as well as any other additional fees which may be mandatory based upon their circumstances, including a dog fee, early check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private swimming pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Cancellations Happen

Make sure you be aware of the cancellation policy prior to booking. You will probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance protects the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives you peace of mind should catastrophe strike.

Reserve It

When you believe you've found "the one", start the reservation process. You'll likely be asked to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Where to Get Assistance

Don't forget to get the property manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. We recommend saving the contact's details in your cell phone and wallet.

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

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Record the condition of the rental property immediately upon arrival. We also suggest immediately calling the rental manager with a report of any problems, along with your request for any required repairs.
  • When there's any ambiguity about parking, policies of the house, condo access, swimming pool operations, etc... we advise you ask the rental home manager promptly. A phone call can save several hours of difficulty.
  • Please remember to respect your neighbors. Local people will be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a visit significantly more pleasant.
  • Ask a local. Residents may point you in the right direction.
  • Remember to protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the vacation rental secured when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Check Out Time

  • Make sure you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cupboards and wardrobes.
  • Be sure to walk through the rental home one last time and check for damages. If possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property manager present. If the property manager is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Many vacation rental sites seek feedback after your stay . Rental owners and property managers will appreciate your positive ratings. If anything went wrong and they didn't correct it in a reasonable manner, or when the rental home was not as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your critique.

Learn and Improve

Does everyone want to return next year? Hopefully everything was fantastic and you are excited to re-book the same rental for next year. Otherwise, you've gained invaluable experience that will help with your 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.

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.
