How to Book a Rental Home

You may be shocked to discover just how many rental homes are available at your destination. With such a big selection, vacationers are certain to come across a property that matches their desires and spending budget.

Nearly all rental homes in Beaufort, NC are privately operated and many are represented by established local property management agencies. Rental owners often choose management companies to facilitate advertising, housekeeping and routine maintenance.

Here are some tips and techniques to help you understand the vacation rental search and booking process.

Finding and booking the perfect vacation property:

Before you start to book "Single family home, but great for sharing with friends or 2 families!", read through our short collection of issues to consider.

Search Early and Frequently

Beaufort, NC vacation rentals book several months (and up to a year) in advance. For the best selection, begin your planning and search 6-Twelve months in advance of your vacation. Many visitors plan to begin their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve gatherings.

Choose your Town and Vacation Week

Start by determining which particular area of Beaufort, NC you prefer to browse, and the choose dates you'll be vacationing.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Establish who is going, and just how many/what kind of bedroom configuration you'll need. Keep in mind that most rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the family room. It is important to figure out what is most appropriate for the company. Generally rental home listings will describe each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Decide on Your Budget

Most vacation rentals are presented with a cost range. Confirm the cost for your desired trip. It might be at the top end of the range. Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from company prior to reserving an expensive rental. One member of your family will have to be responsible for getting contributions and acknowledging responsibility for the complete rental price at time of reservation.

Compose a list of "Preferences" and "Requirements"

What amenities is your family trying to find? Is a screened-in deck a necessity? Do you want to be away from it all, or close to a city setting? Are sheets included with the rental, or do you need to bring your own? Make a list of priority conveniences to guide narrow your search.

Accessability

Elderly family members will appreciate you for not renting a stairs-only condo on the Third floor. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is required, include that into your search. Almost all rental listings include a list of amenities.

Paws-Friendly, Please

Are you or other people in the crew traveling with a family dog? Pet policies are different at each rental property. Study descriptions thoroughly. Read your agreement carefully! Fees may apply when animals are added.

Start the Search

When the area, time and family members are decided, search multiple sources for the very best vacation home selection. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local rentals" for local property management companies. Besides having exceptional rental properties, local companies offer top-notch service..

Negotiate the Price

When you have identified the rentalhome of your dreams, check to confirm your trip dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Off-peak weeks should be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..

Study the Entire Contract

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

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

Be sure that your price includes all state taxes and fees.

Cancelling your Rental property

Make sure you are familiar with the cancellation policy prior to reserving. Rental home management companies and property owners typically offer their clients the option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which commonly costs ranges from 1% - 5% of the standard vacation rental rate, can provide vacationers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any nights missed resulting from personal medical related emergencies or storms, in addition to hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unanticipated motel stay or additional gas.

Reserve It

When you think you've found "the one", begin the booking process. You'll likely have to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Get Contact Info

Put the property manager's contact information into your phone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your stay.

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

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any problems immediately after you arrive. We also suggest immediately getting in touch with the property manager with a report of any wear and tear, along with your request for any needed repairs. This will protect against disputes during checkout.
  • Ask questions. You might need guidance for a fireplace, TV or spa tub. Call your home manager. They are there to help. A quick phone call helps prevent many complications.
  • Don't forget to be a good next-door neighbor. Residents often times live within earshot. Respecting late-night quiet hours and parking restrictions can make a visit much more enjoyable.
  • Ask a local. Local people can frequently point you in the right direction.
  • Make sure that you protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation rental secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Be certain that you've packed everything. Check drawers, bath cupboards and wardrobes.
  • Make sure to walk through the rental home one last time and check for damage. Whenever you can, do this walk-out inspection with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, be sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Most vacation rental management companies and rental home sites allow renters to offer feedback. If your rental and/or property manager was outstanding, they will appreciate your praise. If something went wrong and they failed to fix it in a reasonable manner, or when the rental was not as described, you may want to note that in your feedback.

Iterate

Hold a vacation recap meeting with the members of your group. How did they like the rental? If everything was exceptional, next year's trip planning is going to be relatively easy. If the rental property was not perfect, and you'll better know how to improve your search for the next time.
