Searching for and booking the right vacation property:
Before you decide to book "Gated Dolphin Ridge Luxury~this home is absolutely stunning!", read through our brief list of things to consider.
The Sooner You Start, The Better The Choices
Like many renowned destinations, In Morehead City the best rentals are booked early. For the best selection, start your planning and search 6-Twelve months before a trip. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your rental..
Find your Area and Determine Dates
Quite often, the most challenging part of preparing for your vacation is figuring out where to go, and when. Once the big decisions are resolved, the rest will be easier.
Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter
Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Keep in mind that most rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living area. You'll need to figure out what is most appropriate for your party. Generally vacation home listings will describe each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.
Stick to a Budget
Many rental homes are presented with a price range. Determine the cost for your chosen stay. It might be at the top end of the range. If multiple individuals or family members are sharing the cost, check to make sure each group knows their obligations and has agreed to a maximum they are prepared to pay. A single member of your group must be in charge of gathering repayments and agreeing to responsibility for the whole rental fee at time of booking.
Compose a list of "Preferences" and "Necessities"
What amenities is your family interested in? Is a screened deck a requirement? Do you desire to be far from the crowds, or close to civilization? Will the unit have bikes and beach toys available for use as part of your stay? Gather a list of prioritized "needs and wants" from your group to help filter your search to the most suitable rental.
Accessibility and Special Things to consider
Often times the older generation has challenges with stairs. If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized devices are necessary, include that into your search. Most vacation rental postings will include a list of amenities.
Make sure you include your pets. Pet policies are different at each rental. Study descriptions carefully. A number of restrictions may eliminate a potential rental home. Study your agreement carefully! Extra charges may apply when animals are included.
Searching the Internet
After the location, travel dates and attendees are decided, search multiple resources for the greatest vacation home selection. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Morehead City local vacation homes" for local vacation rental management companies. Besides offering exceptional rental properties, local companies provide outstanding service..
Re-read the description to make certain that the rental has everything you need. If it is lacking, the home management company may know of comparable properties that suit your style and budget..
While not true for all properties, many owners and property managers will negotiate rates. If they are hesitant to budge on a peak-season week, try asking for an extra night. Off-peak season offers your greatest chance to negotiate a lower rate.
Go Through The Agreement

If you wish to Cancel
Cancellation policies are different for each vacation rental. Many rental property agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives relief should tragedy strike.
Reserve your Vacation Property
As soon as you believe you've found "the one", begin the reservation process. You will probably need to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.
Know Who to Call
Put the rental manager's contact information into your phone and wallet for convenient access to answers during your stay.
Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!
During your Stay
- To make certain no damages are linked to your stay, create a record of any problem areas of the property. If you discover damage, or if repairs are required contact the property manager straight away. This will prevent disagreements during checkout.
- Ask questions. When there's any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the house, property access, pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the property manager promptly. A brief phone call helps prevent many hassles.
- Make sure to be a good neighbor. Locals will likely 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 visitors next to your primary residence.
- Ask a local. Locals are a good source of suggestions. Who better to ask where to order the best pizza, have a great date night, or the best areas for night life?
- Ensure you protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental secured while you are away, just like you would in your own home.
- Double-check each room of the vacation property to ensure that you've packed all belongings.
- Once everything is out, do a walk-through of the rental home to be certain no property damage occurred during your stay. We advise walking through with the rental manager wherever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, make sure you take photos of the property to record its condition.
- How do you feel about your choice? Many rental websites ask for testimonials after your stay . Property owners and rental managers will thank you for favorable reviews. If anything went wrong, we suggest being understanding but straightforward with regards to your stay. Top owners and managers will work hard to correct the issue.
Learn from your Experience
Hold a meeting with your family. Does everyone want to return next year? Hopefully this guide steered you to a terrific rental unit. Maybe the property was not ideal, and you will better recognize how to refine your search for the next trip.
