These guides provide a great start to your vacation rental search.
  • Want to avoid the crowds and save some money? Off-peak times offer up remarkable markdowns.
  • Are you a military veteran? Quite a few rental companies provide financial savings to vets and active-duty forces. Make sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your travelling group is eligible for a special offer.
  • Some rentals are practically designed to serve particular guests, whether it's oceanside homes with pier passes, city-center condos with walkable access to night life or waterfront homes that feature their own boat launching areas. You should prioritize your proximity to the family activities and sight-seeing opportunities you are most interested in.
  • Consider obtaining trip insurance together with your lease contract.

General Rental property Tips & Tricks

First-timers are likely to be shocked at the number and variety of daily, weekly and monthly properties available in the Beaufort, NC area. With such a wide selection, guests are certain to discover a property which fits their expectations and spending budget.

Vacation homes are usually owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Rental owners frequently choose management companies to assist with promoting and advertising, house cleaning and repairs and maintenance.

We have constructed a brief guide to assist you in getting most out of your rental property experience.

Searching for and booking the perfect rental property:

Do you think "OCEAN FRONT HOME WITH HEATED POOL & HOT TUB (INCREDIBLE DISCOUNTS OFF SEASON)" is the perfect rental property for your upcoming family vacation? Look over this checklist to ensure it fits your needs.

The Sooner, The Better

Beaufort, NC rental homes start booking very early. Booking your vacation property 6-12 months before your travel dates is usually recommended, when possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and reserve your rental home..

Pick a Village and Time

Sometimes, the toughest portion of organizing your trip is deciding where to search, and when. After the big decisions are hammered out, everything else becomes easier.

Selecting an Correctly-Sized Vacation rental

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Bear in mind that most rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the home's living room. It is important to figure out what is acceptable for the party. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly accessible online. Otherwise, speak to the property owner before you reserve the home.

Establish Your Budget

Make certain "OCEAN FRONT HOME WITH HEATED POOL & HOT TUB (INCREDIBLE DISCOUNTS OFF SEASON)" works with your price range *during your desired dates*. Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from friends and family prior to booking an expensive rental property. Most rental contracts require a single person to be liable for the full reservation.

Create a list of "Preferences" and "Needs"

What property features is the family looking for? Is a screened deck a necessity? Will the unit need to be beachfront, downtown, or in close proximity to shopping? Does the unit have bicycles and body boards for use as part of your stay? Create a list of priority conveniences to guide filter your search.

Accessability

Elderly guests will appreciate you for not renting a stairs-access-only condominium on the 3rd floor. If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is needed, include that into your search. Almost all rental home listings will include a list of amenities.

Fido Approved

Make sure you include your companion! Pets are welcome at many rental properties, but policies differ. Read your contract carefully! Extra fees may apply when animals are added. Ask questions *well before* you book!

The best places to Search

When the area, travel dates and people are decided, search multiple resources for the very best vacation home selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local vacation rentals" for local vacation home management companies. Local property management companies pride themselves on a superior vacation experience.

Negotiate

When you've spotted the rentalhome of your dreams, double check to make sure your travel dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try getting an extra night. Off-peak weeks will be negotiable more often than peak-season..

Study The Agreement

Read through the complete contract and be certain you fully understand who is responsible for:

  • Electric bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Telephone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Key exchange
  • Parking Space

Make sure your price includes all taxes and fees.

Cancelling your Rental

Cancellation policies vary for each vacation rental. Many rental property agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base rental rate, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental home costs) for any nights missed due to personal hospital emergencies or storms, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unexpected motel stay or extra gas.

Complete the Booking

When everything looks right, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. Bear in mind that most rental contracts will require a significant rental down payment and/or security deposit to protect the rental home owner.

Know Who to Call

Put the rental manager's contact info into your phone and wallet for easy access to answers during your stay.

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

During your Stay

  • Photograph at your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental property immediately upon arrival. We also suggest promptly getting in touch with the rental home manager with a report of any wear and tear, together with your request for any necessary repairs.
  • Ask questions. If you have any ambiguity about parking, rules of the house, house access, pool operation, etc... we suggest you ask the rental home manager promptly. A phone call can save several hours of difficulty.
  • Remember to respect your neighbors. Permanent residents most likely live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a fantastic source of tips. Who better to ask where to order the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the home secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Double-check every space of the rental home to ensure that you've packed all possessions.
  • Once your things are all out, begin a walk-through of the property to make sure that no damage occurred in the course of your stay. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever feasible (this may not be possible).. If the property owner is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your rental home? Just about all rental management companies and rental search sites make it easy for customers to offer feedback. If your vacation rental and/or property manager was terrific, they'll appreciate your positive reviews. If something went wrong, we suggest being kind but honest with regards to experience. The best property owners and managers will try very hard to fix the situation.

Learn from your Experience

Hold a vacation recap meeting with the people in your group. Does everyone want to go back? Maybe everything ended up being perfect and you're ready to reserve the rental home for next season. Otherwise, you have acquired invaluable rental search experience that can help with the next search.
