The second floor also has a central TV viewing room with a day bed with trundle (a possible 4th bedroom) as well as the laundry with state of the art washer and dryer.

The first floor is an open concept that includes the family room with a intelligent tv with blue ray player, dining area, a entirely supplied chef's kitchen with stainless steel appliances, including double ovens, convenient breakfast bar and half bath. The beautiful round wood dining table seats eight. A screened porch off the dining room provides another place to dine with a table for 6 and two comfortable swivel rockers to relax and appreciate the outdoors bug complimentary. Twinkle lights make nighttime a special spot to wind down! A covered wrap around rocking chair porch is ideal for early morning and late day leisure with 5 rocking chairs.

  • Some properties are primarily suited for particular types of visitors. Event homes are great for weddings, receptions and corporate meetings. Some properties appeal to wildlife enthusiasts. Other homes are situated close to music venues. If there's a specific Wilmington, NC atteaction that you just love, look for rentals that cater especially to you.
  • Property management companies and individual property owners generally offer their customers an opportunity to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic term price, offers buyers reimbursement of their trip costs for any days missed a result of personal medical emergencies or storms, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unforeseen hotel room stay or additional gas.

The Rental Process

You might be shocked to uncover how many properties are available at your destination. With such a wide selection, guests are sure to find a vacation home that suits their wishes and spending budget.

Nearly all rental properties in Wilmington, NC are privately operated and many are represented by well-known local property management agencies. For owners not directly engaged in the management of their property, management companies are critical in helping families with booking, checking-in, cleaning, as well as routine maintenance problems that may occur.

Below are some tips and strategies to help you understand the vacation home search and reservation process.

Searching for and booking the best rental home:

Before you decide to book "Lifestyle membership to BHI Club included (provides access to golf)!!", go through our short collection of considerations.

The Sooner, The Better

Like many trendy hot spots, In Wilmington, NC the best vacation homes are booked very early. Reserving your rental 6-12 months in advance is usually recommended, when possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and book your rental..

Pick a Village and Date

Quite often, the toughest part of preparing for your vacation is figuring out where to search, and when. When the big decisions are tackled, everything else is much easier.

Just How Much Rental Do You Actually Need?

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Try to remember that many rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room. You will need to determine what is suitable for your group. Most rental listings will summarize each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Make a Budget

Will the chosen rental fit your budget during that choice Summer week? If a few groups or family members are sharing the cost, always make sure each party understands their responsibilities and has approved a maximum they are willing to pay. One member of your party will have to be in charge of gathering payments and agreeing to responsibility for the entire rental fee at time of booking.

Its All About Amenities

What amenities is the family searching for? Are you looking for a vacation property with outdoor lounge? Are you more interested in a natural landscape or amusements? Are bed sheets included with the rental, or do you need to provide your own? Build a list of priority conveniences to help narrow your search.

Special Issues to consider

Suitable accessibility could make or ruin a visit for the less-mobile. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are required, include that into your search. Nearly all vacation home postings include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Are you or other members of the party visiting with a pet dog? Although a number of rental homes permit household pets, rules and charges fluctuate per rental. Read your contract carefully! Extra charges may apply when pets are included.

Start your Search

After the place, travel dates and guests are decided, search multiple resources for the very best vacation home selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Wilmington, NC local rental homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local rental home management companies proudly offer an exceptional vacation experience.

Negotiate the Price

When you've spotted the rentalhome of your dreams, check to confirm your trip dates are available.

Although not true for all rental homes, many owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are hesitant to budge on a highly-desirable week, try getting an extra night. Off-peak weeks will probably be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Go Through The Contract

Find out which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Utilities
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

Get a total that incorporates state taxes, animal and other extra fees.

Cancellation Policies

Ensure that you be aware of the cancellation policy before booking. You will probably be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It offers peace of mind should tragedy strike.

Book your Vacation Property

When everything looks correct, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. You'll probably need to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Keep Your Contact's Info

Be sure you get the property manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your vacation property. We suggest saving the contact's details in your smart phone and wallet.

Congrats on booking your rental! You're on the right path to a terrific vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. Take notes of any problems soon after you arrive. Contact the rental manager right away to report your observations.
  • You may need instructions for a fireplace, Television set or spa. Get in touch with your rental manager. They are there to help. A quick phone call prevents many problems.
  • Please be considerate of the local community. Natives should be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay substantially more pleasant.
  • Ask a local. Local people may point you in the right direction.
  • Enjoy your stay! Remember to protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the home 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 each room in the home for forgotten possessions. Inspect bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cupboards, backyards, the pool area, and anywhere else your gear might "hide".
  • Once your things are all out, begin a walk-through of the rental to confirm no damage occurred in the course of your stay. We recommend walking through with the rental manager wherever possible (this isn't always the case).. If the property owner is not available, make certain to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How do you rate your experience? Most vacation rental sites seek testimonials after your stay is complete. Property owners and rental managers will appreciate your favorable reviews. If anything went wrong, we recommend being pleasant but completely honest with regards to rental experience. The best property owners and managers will try hard to solve the situation.

Learn and Improve

Hold a vacation recap meeting with your traveling companions. Does everybody want to re-book next year? Maybe everything ended up being wonderful and you are excited to re-book the same rental for your next vacation. Maybe the property was not ideal, and you'll better understand how to perfect your search for the next trip.

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.
