Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Many property management companies and rental houses supply Wilmington, NC area vacation discount magazines which feature money-saving offers, either offered individually by local companies, or by a partnership between the property management company and the vendor itself. Be on the lookout for these books and coupon books, because this allows travelers to take advantage of the very same attractions at a typically significantly discounted.
  • Want to stay away from packed areas and save some money? The off-peak seasons may offer amazing rates on daily rentals.
  • Many vacation rental companies and owners offer special discounts for active duty and veteran men and women of the US Military, or repeat guests to the same vacation home. Be sure to check with property owner to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a discounted price.
  • Some rental properties are basically designed to serve specific clients, whether it is beachfront rentals with weekly pier passes, city-center condos with close access to shopping or waterfront homes that feature their own windsurfing launching areas. You'll get the best value from a rental which most thoroughly matches your ideal holiday setting, even if it costs a little more.
  • Give thought to obtaining trip insurance with your leasing contract. Trip insurance, which generally costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base stay rate, provides visitors reimbursement of their rental expenses for any missed due to personal health related emergencies or weather, and additionally ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel room stay or additional gas.

How to Book a Vacation Home

Newcomers are often times shocked at the range and variety of short term properties available in the Wilmington, NC area. Rental accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of international search sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

The vast majority of rentals in Wilmington, NC are privately owned and many are represented by established local property management companies. For owners not directly involved with the management of their property, management companies are instrumental in helping travellers with booking, checking-in, housekeeping services, as well as repairs and maintenance issues that may occur.

Below are great tips and tactics to help you navigate the rental search and booking process.

Searching for and booking the perfect rental property:

Do you believe "Fun-Filled Beachfront House w/Free WiFi, Private Washer/Dryer, AC, Patio, Deck" is the best rental property for your upcoming vacation? Read through this guide to ensure it fits all of your preferences.

Begin Your Search Early

Wilmington, NC vacation homes are reserved many months (and up to a year) in advance. To ensure the very best selection of properties, we advise searching and reserving your Wilmington, NC rental home 6-Twelve months in advance, whenever possible. Holiday gatherings are a great time for family groups to plan their Summer escapes..

Find your Spot and Decide Dates

Consensus can often be complicated between relatives, but as soon as this challenging part is complete everything will quickly slide in place.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

How many relatives are planning to share your vacation? Try to remember that a lot of properties list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the family room. It is important to determine what is most appropriate for your family. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly accessible online. Otherwise, contact the property manager before you reserve the home.

Determine Your Budget

Make sure "Fun-Filled Beachfront House w/Free WiFi, Private Washer/Dryer, AC, Patio, Deck" fits your price range *during your desired week*. Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from loved ones well before booking a costly rental. Most rental contracts require a single person to be in charge of the full reservation.

Compose a list of "Wishes" and "Requirements"

What home features is your group looking for? Do you primarily want a vacation home with a pool, spa tub or beach volleyball court? Do you desire to be far from the crowds, or near civilization? Are bedsheets offered with the rental, or will you need to take your own? Make a list of priority conveniences to guide narrow your search.

Accessability

Often times the elder generation has problems with stairs. Ensure that you remember and ask about wheel chair access, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

Paws-Friendly, Please

Make sure you include your companion! Even though a number of rental homes allow animals, rules and fees vary per property. A number of limitations may eliminate a prospective rental. Ensure that you study agreements and contracts carefully. Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. When in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

The best places to Search

After the place, time and people are decided, search multiple resources to find the best rental home selection. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Wilmington, NC local rental properties" for local rental home management companies. Local rental management companies proudly offer an exceptional vacation experience.

Negotiate the Price

When you have identified your dream rental, make sure your trip dates are available.

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

Read the Agreement

You'll want to know which services are included:

  • Utilities
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Fees

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

Trip Insurance

Cancellation policies vary for each vacation rental. Vacation home management companies and home owners typically offer their clients the option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of your standard vacation rental price, provides guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any nights missed a result of personal health emergencies or storms, in addition to hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unforeseen motel stay or extra gas.

Reserve It

When you believe you've identified "the one", start the booking process. You will probably be required to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Keep Your Property Manager's Information

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

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

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. To ensure no damages are associated with your stay, create a record of any trouble spots of the rental. Contact the rental manager right away to report your findings. This may protect against conflicts during checkout.
  • Ask questions. You might need instructions for a gas fireplace, Television set or jacuzzi. Contact your property manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save several hours of difficulties.
  • Don't forget to be a good next-door neighbor. Permanent residents invariably live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Locals may point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best pizza, have a great date night, or the best places for shopping?
  • Remember to protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured when you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

At the end of your stay

  • Make sure you've packed all your belongings. Sweep all the rooms in the house for forgotten items. Check bath rooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, decks, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your gear might "hide".
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental one last time and look for damage. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever you can (this may not be possible).. If the property manager is not available, make sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you feel about your stay? Virtually all rental websites seek comments after your stay is complete. Property owners and rental managers will thank you for favorable critiques. If something went wrong, we recommend being understanding but honest with regards to your rental experience. Top property owners and managers will work very hard to solve the situation.

Learn and Improve

Hold a meeting with your traveling companions. Did they love their rental? We hope this guide steered you to a fantastic home away from home. Otherwise, you've gained invaluable experience that can 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. 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.
