These guides may provide a good start to your vacation rental search.
  • Is it possible to adjust your vacation week? Shoulder seasons provide amazing opportunities.
  • Are you a military veteran? Plenty of rental companies offer markdowns to vets and active-duty forces. Be sure to confirm with property manager to see if your travelling gang is eligible for a discounted rate.
  • Is there a specific experience you are most longing for ? You will definitely get the best value from a home that most directly satisfies your ideal vacation setting, even if it costs a little more.
  • Give thought to obtaining trip insurance with your leasing contract.

Seasoned Wilmington, NC vacationers have discovered a handful of tips and tricks throughout the years with regards to renting vacation rentals, however most beginners will be happy to discover that many of these "tricks" are in plain sight, if you know how to search.

Searching for and booking the right rental:

Before you decide to book "German Chalet by the sea", read through our brief checklist of issues to consider.

Search Early and Frequently

Wilmington, NC rentals start booking early. For the best selection, start your planning and search Six-12 months before your trip. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your rental..

Find your Spot and Determine Dates

Agreement can be tough between close relatives, but the moment this challenging part is complete everything will quickly slide in place.

How Much Rental home Do You Really Need?

Determine who is attending the vacation, and just how many/what sort of bedroom setup you'll need. Remember that that a lot of rentals list maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. You will need to figure out what is acceptable for your party. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available online. Otherwise, speak to the property manager before you reserve the home.

Exactly What Are You Prepared to Shell out?

Confirm that "German Chalet by the sea" fits your budget *during your desired dates*. Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from friends and family prior to booking a pricey rental property. One member of your family will have to be in charge of collecting payments and accepting responsibility for the whole rental payment at time of booking.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is your group looking for? Do you simply want a property with a pool, hot tub or beach volleyball court? Do you want to be far from the crowds, or close to a city setting? Are mattress sheets included with the rental, or will you need to bring your own? Make a list of priority features to facilitate filter your search.

Accessibility and Special Circumstances

Do certain people in your party have specialized needs? Ensure that you remember and inquire about wheel chair entry, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

Your Puppy Deserves a Vacation, Too

Are you or other individuals in the party travelling with a furry friend? Animals are welcome at many vacation homes, but guidelines differ. Be sure to read agreements and contracts carefully. Additional charges may apply when pets are included. If in doubt, ask the property manager and get it in writing.

Start the Search

Once the area, dates and guests are decided, search multiple resources to find the best rental home selection. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Wilmington, NC local vacation rentals" for local rental home management companies. Local rental management companies proudly offer a first-class vacation experience.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to make sure the vacation rental has everything required. If lacking, the rental home management company might know of very similar homes that fit your wishes and budget..

Although not true for all rental homes, many rental owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season trip, try asking for an additional night. Off-peak weeks will probably be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Read the Agreement

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

  • Power bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

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

Cancelling your Vacation Property

Make sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy before reserving. Property management companies and individual rental owners often offer their clients the choice to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives you comfort should disaster strike.

Reserve your Vacation Property

When everything looks correct, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. You will likely be required to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Know Who to Call

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

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your visit!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any damage as soon as you arrive. Call the rental manager right away to report your observations. If there is a disagreement about legal liability later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will be useful.
  • You might need instructions for a fireplace, TV or jacuzzi. Call your home manager. They are there to help. A brief phone call avoids many problems.
  • Make sure to be a good neighbor. Permanent residents often live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking restrictions can make a stay a good deal more pleasant.
  • Ask a local. Locals may point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best spots for night life?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure that you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation rental secured while you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Check to make sure you've packed everything. Examine drawers, bath cupboards and closets.
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one final time and look for property damage. We recommend walking through with the rental manager whenever possible (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your stay? Nearly all rental websites ask for comments after your stay . Rental owners and rental managers will thank you for glowing critiques. If something went wrong, we advise being kind but sincere in regards to your rental experience. Top owners and managers will try very hard to correct the issue.

Learn from your Stay

Hold a vacation recap meeting with your family. Does everyone want to return next year? If everything was outstanding, next year's vacation planning will be simple. Maybe the rental property was not quite right, and you'll better know how to improve your search for the next trip.

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.
