A lot of families prefer to start their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.

Pick your Town and Travel Week

Quite often, the toughest portion of planning your vacation is choosing where to go, and when. As soon as the big decisions are tackled, everything else will be simpler.

Exactly How Much Vacation rental Do You Really Need?

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Be mindful that a lot of vacation rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room. You will need to figure out what is suitable for the party. Generally vacation home listings will outline each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

Have a Spending Limit

Make certain "Our Happy Place-Walk/Bike Downtown Beaufort/Pets Ok /Virtual Tour of Condo" suits your budget *during your desired dates*. If multiple individuals or relatives are sharing the cost, always make sure that everyone understands their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are willing to contribute.

Property Features

What amenities is your family interested in? Are you looking for a vacation property with outdoor kitchen? Are you more interested in a natural landscape or nightlife? Will the rental have bicycles and body boards available as part of your stay? Make a list of prioritized "necessities and wants" from your company to help filter your search to the most appropriate home.

Special Issues

In some cases the senior generation has challenges with staircases. Be sure to remember and inquire about wheel chair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment requirements..

Fido Approved

Make sure you include your companion! Animals are welcome at many rentals, but guidelines differ. Type of animal, size and dog breeds may be restricted. Make sure that you study agreements and contracts carefully. Additional fees or deposits may be applied to your contract.

Searching the Internet

. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local vacation homes" for local vacation home management companies. Local property management companies pride themselves on a first-class rental experience.

Negotiate

Re-read the description to ensure the rental home has everything required. If lacking, the property management company might know of very similar homes that better fit your wishes and budget..

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

Go Through The Contract

Read through the entire agreement and make certain you are aware who is responsible for:

  • Electric bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Phone service
  • Pool and hot tub heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)

Get Contact Information

Put the property manager's contact info into your smart phone and wallet for quick access to answers during your trip.

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

During your Stay

  • Photograph on your arrival. Take notes of any wear and tear right after you arrive. If you discover damages, or if fixes are needed get in touch with the rental manager immediately. If there is a difference of opinion about legal responsibility later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will be helpful.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a gas fireplace, Television set or spa tub. Contact your home manager. They are there to assist. A quick phone call eliminates many hassles.
  • Make sure to be a good next-door neighbor. Residents should be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your home.
  • Ask a local. Natives can frequently point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best spots for night life?
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure you protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental home locked up when you are away, just like you would at home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Make sure you've packed all your things. Sweep all the rooms in the home for left-behind possessions. Inspect bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, porches, the pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Please make sure to walk through the rental home one final time and check for property damage. We suggest walking through with the property manager wherever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, ensure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Most rental home sites request reviews after your stay is complete. Property owners and property managers will thank you for glowing reviews. If something went wrong, we recommend being pleasant but completely honest about your rental experience. The best owners and managers will try very hard to rectify the issue.

Learn and Improve

Does everybody want to re-book next year? Maybe everything turned out to be fantastic and you are all set to reserve the same rental home for next season. Maybe the rental home was not ideal, and you'll better understand how to perfect your search next time.
