How to get the best deal on your rental

  • Search for the official tourism bureau in the area you wish to travel. Many tourism bureaus will send you guides with savings for rental properties, restaurants and activities. These guides can provide a great start to your vacation rental search.
  • Are you able to move your vacation week? Off-peak times provide sizeable bargains.
  • Plenty of vacation rental companies and owners offer savings for active duty and veteran members of the Military, or repeat individuals of the same property. Make sure to confirm with property manager to see if your travelling gang is eligible for a markdown.
  • Some rentals are basically catered to specific travelers, whether it is soundside units with weekly pier passes, city-center homes with walkable access to restaurants or waterfront homes that have private kiteboarding launching areas. You will definitely get the best value from a home which most closely suits your ideal vacation setting, even if it costs a bit extra.
  • Rental companies and individual rental home owners commonly offer their customers the chance to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally add somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental price, provides travellers reimbursement of their rental costs for any nights missed as a result of health-related emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unplanned motel stay or additional fuel.

General Vacation Rental Advice

First-timers are sometimes surprised at the range and wide selection of short term vacation rentals available in the Wilmington, NC area. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of vacation rentals available makes it possible to find an optimum getaway to fit their Wilmington, NC group, from low-noise condominiums to huge event homes with several bedrooms.

The majority of rentals in Wilmington, NC are privately owned and many are represented by well-known local property management agencies. Owners often choose management companies to manage advertising, house cleaning services and routine maintenance.

We've developed a brief guide to help you get the most out of your vacation property experience.

Finding and booking the best rental property:

Before you start to book ""Haven By The Sound" - Intercoastal Waterway Home w/ Pool, 6 Bedrooms / 6.5 Bathrooms", review our short list of points to consider.

Begin Your Search Early

Wilmington, NC rental properties book months (and up to a year) in advance. Booking your vacation property 6-12 months in advance is recommended, whenever possible. Many households prefer to begin their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve holiday gatherings.

Find your Area and Decide Dates

Oftentimes, the toughest portion of scheduling your trip is choosing where to go, and when. When the big decisions are hammered out, the rest is much easier.

Decide on a Size

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Try to remember that most properties advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living area. It is important to determine what is suitable for the party. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are usually available on the internet. Otherwise, contact the property manager before you reserve the home.

Establish Your Budget

Confirm that ""Haven By The Sound" - Intercoastal Waterway Home w/ Pool, 6 Bedrooms / 6.5 Bathrooms" works with your price range *during your desired dates*. If multiple groups or relatives are sharing the cost, ensure everybody knows their obligation and has approved a maximum they are willing to contribute. One member of your party must be given the task of collecting contributions and acknowledging responsibility for the entire rental payment at time of reservation.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is the group trying to find? Do you want a rental home with outside lounge? Do you wish to be far from the crowds, or near civilization? Are mattress sheets included with the rental agreement, or do you need to take your own? Build a list of priority conveniences to facilitate narrow your search.

Accessability

Do members of your crew have specialized needs? If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are required, include that into your search. The majority of vacation rental listings include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Make sure to include your pets. Although many vacation rentals allow pets, guidelines and fees fluctuate per rental. A number of restrictions may possibly eliminate a prospective rental. Make certain you study agreements and contracts carefully. Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *before* you book!

Start the Search

Several websites exist to match visitors with rental owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Wilmington, NC local rentals" for local rental management companies. Aside from offering distinctive rental properties, local companies offer you exceptional service..

Negotiate the Price

When you've spotted your dream rental, make sure your travel dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try getting an additional night. Your best chance for a reduced rate is shifting to an off-season week.

Go Through The Agreement

You really need to know which services are included:

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

In addition to the regular rate, visitors will have to pay local taxes when booking ""Haven By The Sound" - Intercoastal Waterway Home w/ Pool, 6 Bedrooms / 6.5 Bathrooms", as well as various other additional fees which might be mandatory based upon their circumstances, including a dog fee, early check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

If you wish to Cancel

Make sure you understand the cancellation policy prior to reserving. You'll likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergencies and weather events, It offers relief should disaster strike.

Complete the Booking

When everything seems right, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. Keep in mind that most rental agreements require a significant rental down payment and/or security deposit to cover the rental owner.

Keep Your Contact's Information

Make sure to get the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your vacation property. We suggest keeping the contact's information in your cell phone and wallet.

Good job on booking your vacation rental! You're on the right path to a fabulous vacation!

During your Stay

  • Record the overall condition of the rental home right away. We also recommend immediately phoning the property manager with a report of any damage, together with your request for any repairs. If there is a disagreement about liability later, having the recorded problems and contact attempts should be very helpful.
  • Ask questions. When there is any ambiguity about parking, policies of the property, house access, pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental home manager immediately. A phone call can save several hours of difficulties.
  • Please be respectful of the neighborhood. Residents more often than not live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a trip a lot more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Residents are a fantastic source of suggestions. Who better to ask where to get the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Remember to protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the property secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Check to make sure you've packed everything. Examine drawers, bath cabinets and wardrobes.
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one last time and look for damages. We suggest walking through with the property manager wherever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, you'll want to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you enjoy your vacation rental? Virtually all rental home web sites ask for comments after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will thank you for glowing recommendations. If anything went wrong and they didn't correct it in a reasonable manner, or when the property wasn't as described, you will want to note that as part of your feedback.

Learn and Improve

How did they like the property? If everything was wonderful, next year's trip planning is going to be relatively easy. Maybe the rental home wasn't perfect, and you'll better know how to perfect your search for the next time.
