Money Saving Rental Tips

  • Search for the official tourism bureau in the area you want to travel. Most tourism bureaus will send you printed guide books with special packages for vacation rentals, dining and tours. These guides may provide a great start to your rental search.
  • Would like to steer clear of the crowds? Off-peak times provide sizeable discounts.
  • Are you a armed forces veteran? Several management companies offer price cuts to veterans and active-duty forces. Make sure to check with vacation rental company to see if your vacationing group qualifies for a price reduction.
  • Some properties are primarily suited for specific groups of visitors. Large event homes are great for weddings, wedding parties and corporate escapes. Some rentals appeal to beach bums. Other rentals are situated close to music venues. If there's a specific Morehead City activity you simply love, be on the lookout for rentals that cater especially to you.
  • Give thought to obtaining trip insurance with your rental contract. Trip insurance, which usually costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of the basic term price, provides vacationers reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any missed as a result of personal medical-related emergencies or weather, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, like an unforeseen hotel room stay or extra gasoline.

The Rental Process

You may be surprised to discover just how many rentals are available at your destination. Vacation home accommodations have gained in popularity with the rise of global research sites like Tripadvisor and VRBO.

The majority of vacation rentals in Morehead City are privately operated and many are represented by established local property management agencies. For owners not directly involved with the management of their vacation home, management companies are instrumental in helping families with reserving, checking-in, house cleaning services, as well as repairs and maintenance problems that may occur.

Below are some tips and techniques to help you understand the rental home search and booking process.

Finding and reserving the perfect rental property:

Before you book "A Family-Friendly Dream Vacation - Oceanfront Beach Retreat - Private Tiki Bar/Cornhole and Horse...", go through our brief collection of points to consider.

Begin Your Search Early

Like many desirable vacation spots, In Morehead City the best vacation homes are booked early. To guarantee the very best choice of rental homes, we suggest searching and booking your Morehead City rental home 6-Twelve months in advance, whenever feasible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your rental..

Choose a Community and Time

Begin by choosing which specific area of Morehead City you want to visit, and the approximate trip dates.

Exactly How Much Rental Do You Actually Need?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Remember that a lot of homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the living area. You will need to determine what is suitable for your company. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically available on the internet. If not, contact the property owner before you reserve the home.

Decide on Your Budget

Confirm that "A Family-Friendly Dream Vacation - Oceanfront Beach Retreat - Private Tiki Bar/Cornhole and Horse..." works with your budget *during your desired week*. Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from travel companions before reserving a pricey vacation property. In most cases, just one member of the group will be liable for making the whole reservation and getting each person's contribution.

Vacation home Features

What property features is your family trying to find? Do you only desire a vacation home with a pool, spa or volleyball court? Will the property need to be beachfront, in town, or in close proximity to night life? Are extras like beach chairs, grills, umbrellas, carts or coolers at your disposal and included with your rental home payment? Gather a list of "needs and desires" from your party to help filter your search to the perfect rental.

Special Factors to consider

Optimal access can make or ruin a visit for the less-mobile. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special devices are needed, include that into your search. The majority of property listings include a list of amenities.

Your Dog Deserves a Vacation, Too

Remember to include your pets. While many rental homes permit pets, guidelines and fees fluctuate per rental. Type of animal, size and dog breeds might be controlled. Make sure you read descriptions and contracts carefully. Additional fees or costs may be applied to your agreement.

It Is Time to Search

A number of websites exist to match vacationers with property owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Morehead City local rental properties" for local rental home management companies. Apart from having distinctive rental properties, local companies offer top-notch service..

Negotiate

Re-read the description to make sure the vacation rental has everything required. If it is something is missing, the rental home management company may know of comparable homes that suit your preferences and budget..

Some property owners will negotiate rates, and some will not. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Your easiest possibility of a reduced rate will be switching to a less desirable week.

Read the Total Contract

Discover which of the following is included in your quoted rate:

  • Power bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance policies
  • Key exchange
  • Parking requirements

In addition to the standard rate, vacationers have to pay state taxes when booking "A Family-Friendly Dream Vacation - Oceanfront Beach Retreat - Private Tiki Bar/Cornhole and Horse...", as well as various other additional fees which may be required depending on their situation, including a pet charge, earlier check-in or late check-out fee, or a pool heating fee for private pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Cancellation Policies

Ensure that you be aware of the cancellation policy prior to reserving. Many rental home contracts include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which usually costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the standard rental home cost, can provide travellers with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent vacation property costs) for any nights missed a result of personal medical emergencies or storms, as well as hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unexpected motel stay or additional gas.

Complete the Reservation

When everything looks correct, it's finally time to sign on the dotted line. Remember that most rental agreements require a considerable rental down payment and/or security deposit to cover the property owner.

Get Contact Information

Put the property manager's contact information into your cell phone and wallet for quick access to answers during your visit.

Good luck on reserving your vacation home! You're on your way to a terrific vacation!

During your Stay

  • To ensure that no damages are associated with your stay, make a record of any trouble spots of the rental. Get in touch with the rental manager immediately to report your observations. This may protect against disputes during checkout.
  • You may need guidance for a gas fireplace, Television set or spa tub. Get in touch with your property manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save several hours of trouble.
  • Make sure to be a good next-door neighbor. Often times, surrounding residences are lived in by permanent locals. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking rules can make a visit a little more relaxing.
  • Ask a local. Natives are a terrific source of tips.
  • Remember to protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the home locked up when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Checking Out

  • Confirm that you've packed everything. Inspect drawers, bath cabinetry and closets.
  • When everything is out, begin a walk-through of the property to verify no property damage occurred during your remain. We suggest walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (this isn't always the case).. If the property manager is not available, make certain to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you have a good time? Many rental sites request comments after your stay . Property owners and rental managers will thank you for glowing ratings. If something was disagreeable and they failed to fix it in a reasonable manner, or when the property wasn't as described, you should make it a point in your feedback.

Learn from your Experience

How did they feel about the property? If everything was wonderful, next year's trip planning will be painless. If the rental property wasn't ideal, and you'll better recognize how to improve your search for the next time.
