The vast majority of vacation homes in Beaufort, NC are privately owned and many are represented by experienced local property management companies. For property owners not directly engaged in the management of their rental, management companies are instrumental in assisting vacationers with reserving, checking-in, cleaning, as well as repairs and maintenance problems that may occur.

Seasoned Beaufort, NC vacationers have figured out several tips and tricks throughout the years when it comes to renting vacation rentals, however most novices will be delighted to learn that several "methods" are in plain sight, if you recognize how to look.

Searching for and reserving the right rental:

Before you start to book "Shore Beats Work! Direct Oceanfront Atlantic Beach Paradise", read through our short collection of considerations.

The Sooner, The Better

Beaufort, NC rentals are reserved several months (and up to a year) in advance. To guarantee the very best choice of vacation rentals, we advise searching and booking your Beaufort, NC getaway 6-Twelve months in advance, whenever you can. Holiday gatherings can be a popular time for groups to plot their Summer escapes..

Find your Spot and Establish Dates

Begin by determining which specific area of Beaufort, NC you would like to explore, and the choose dates you'll be vacationing.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Determine who is joining, and just how many/what sort of bedroom configuration you'll need. Consider that a lot of homes list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to figure out what is acceptable for the party. Generally rental home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.

Stay on a Budget

Make sure that "Shore Beats Work! Direct Oceanfront Atlantic Beach Paradise" fits your price range *during your desired dates*. Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from travel companions well before reserving an expensive vacation property. Usually, one person in the group will be in charge of making the full reservation and collecting each person's contribution.

Let's Talk Amenities

What property features is your family interested in? Is a screened-in porch a requirement? Do you wish to be far from the crowds, or near civilization? Are sheets offered with the rental contract, or do you need to take your own? Build a list of priority amenities to guide narrow your search.

Special Things to consider

Adequate access can make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. Ensure that you remember and ask about wheel chair access, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs..

Take the Dog

Are you or other members of the crew travelling with a family dog? Pets are welcome at a number of rentals, but policies can vary. Read your agreement very carefully! Extra charges may apply when animals are included. Ask questions *before* you book!

Searching the Internet

Many internet resources exist to match renters with rental home owners.. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Beaufort, NC local vacation rentals" for local vacation home management companies. Local agencies will often have an exclusive selection of vacation homes daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

When you have identified your dream rental, double check to make sure your vacation dates are available.

Although not true for all properties, many owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a peak-season stay, try getting an extra night. Off-peak season offers your best opportunity to make a deal for a lower rate.

Study the Total Contract

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

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Hot Tub Heating

Cancellation Policies

Cancellation policies vary for each rental. You will likely be offered trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs between 1% - 5% of your base vacation rental cost, provides guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental home costs) for any days missed as a consequence of personal health emergencies or storms, in addition to hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unanticipated hotel stay or extra gas.

Reserve your Rental Home

Once you feel you've found "the one", start the booking process. You'll probably be required to submit a security deposit at time of booking.

Know Who to Call

Be sure to get the property manager's contact telephone number and entry/exit procedures for your rental property. We recommend saving the contact's information in your phone and wallet.

  • Take notes of any damage when you arrive. If you find damage, or if fixes are required call the home manager straight away.
