Searching for and reserving the right rental home:

Search Early and Frequently
Like many renowned vacation spots, In Beaufort, NC the best rental properties are booked early. To get the best selection, begin your planning and search 6-12 months before a trip. Holiday reunions can be a great time for families to plot their Summer family trips..
Pick a Town and Time
Quite often, the hardest portion of scheduling your trip is deciding on where to go, and when. As soon as the big decisions are hammered out, everything else is simplier and easier.
Exactly How Much Rental Do You Actually Need?
Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Remember that that a lot of properties advertise maximum guest capacity, which typically includes sofa beds in the living room space. It is important to figure out what is acceptable for the company. Most rental home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.
Stay on a Budget
The majority of rental homes are marketed with a price range. Confirm the cost for your desired week. It could be at the high end of the range. If many individuals or loved ones are sharing the cost, always make sure each group knows their responsibilities and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to chip in. A single member of your company must be responsible for gathering contributions and agreeing to responsibility for the whole rental cost at time of reservation.
What amenities is the family trying to find? Is a swimming pool mandatory?Are you looking for a rental home with outside kitchen? Would you like to be far from the crowds, or close to civilization? Does the unit have bicycles and beach toys for use during your stay? Make a list of "needs and wants" from your party to help filter your search to the most appropriate property.
In some cases the elder generation has problems with stairs. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are required, factor that into your search. The majority of vacation rental listings include a list of amenities.
Are you or other individuals in the party traveling with a furry companion? Even though a number of rental homes allow dogs, guidelines and costs vary per rental. Many limitations could dismiss a potential rental property. You'll want to study descriptions and contracts carefully. Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *prior to* you book!
Its Time to Search

Aside from offering exclusive properties, local companies offer you exceptional service..
Negotiate the Price
Re-read the description to confirm the rental home has everything required. If it is something is missing, the rental home management company may know of very similar properties that better fit your style and budget..
Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable stay, try getting an extra night. Negotiating rates is more effective throughout the off-peak season when many vacation rentals sit empty.

During your Stay
- Record the condition of the rental home immediately upon arrival. We also recommend promptly calling the rental home manager with a report of any damage, along with your request for any needed fixes. If there is a difference of opinion about liability later, having the documented problems and communication attempts will probably be very helpful.
- If you have any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the property, house access, swimming pool operation, etc... we recommend you ask the property manager immediately. A phone call can save hours of hassle.
- Don't forget to be a good next-door neighbor. Residents invariably live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your residence.
- Ask a local. Residents are a good source of recommendations. Who better to ask where to order the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best spots for wildlife?
- Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the property locked up while you are away, just like you would in your own home.
When its Time to Leave
- Double-check each space of the rental home to make sure you've packed all personal belongings.
- When everything is out, perform a walk-through of the rental home to make sure no damage occurred during your stay. Whenever possible, do this walk-out inspection with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
- Did you enjoy yourself? Many rental management company websites seek testimonials after your stay is complete. Owners and rental managers will thank you for favorable ratings. If anything was wrong and they did not correct it in a practical manner, or when the property wasn't as described, you may want to make it a point as part of your comments.
Learn from your Stay
Hold a meeting with your traveling companions. How did they like the property? If everything was amazing, next year's trip planning will be quick. Maybe the rental home was not perfect, and you will better recognize how to improve your search next time.
