General Vacation Rental Tips & Tricks

Many people are shocked to learn the number of properties are offered in their area of interest. With such a wide selection, vacationers are sure to come across a rental home which matches their expectations and price range.

Vacation homes are usually owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Owners frequently select management companies to facilitate web advertising, house cleaning and maintenance tasks.

We've put together a brief guide to assist you in getting most from your rental property experience.

Searching for and booking the perfect rental:

Before you decide to book "5 BR OCEANFRONT Duplex! Gorgeous views! Completely remodeled kitchen!", examine our short list of factors to consider.

Start Your Search Early

New Bern vacation rentals are reserved several months (and up to a year) in advance. To guarantee the best choice of rental homes, we suggest searching and reserving your New Bern vacation home Six-Twelve months in advance, whenever possible. Holiday reunions are a great time for families to plan their Summer trips..

Select a Village and Time

Consensus can often be complicated among close relatives, but as soon as this tricky part is complete everything will quickly drop in place.

How Much Vacation rental Do You Really Need?

How many family members are planning to share your getaway? Be aware that most homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the family room. You'll need to figure out what is suitable for your party. Generally vacation home listings will describe each of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattresses.

Stay on a Budget

Does your chosen rental property fit your budget during that prime Summer week? Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from travel companions well before reserving a pricey rental home. One member of your family will need to be responsible for gathering contributions and agreeing to responsibility for the entire rental cost at time of reservation.

Create a list of "Wants" and "Needs"

What amenities is the family searching for? Is a pool mandatory?Do you want a rental home with outside lounge? Would you like to be far from the crowds, or close to civilization? Does the unit have bikes and body boards for use during your stay? Gather a list of "needs and preferences" from your company to help filter your search to the most suitable property.

Special Criteria

Appropriate access can make or break a vacation for the less-mobile. Make certain to remember and inquire about wheel chair access, pool lifts and special equipment requirements..

What About Furry Family Members?

Make sure to include your furrry friends. Animal friends are welcome at many rental properties, but guidelines can vary. Many restrictions may possibly eliminate a prospective rental property. Make sure that you study descriptions and contracts carefully. Additional fees or costs may be applied to your contract. Ask questions *well before* you reserve!

Start your Search

. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we recommend searching Google for "New Bern local rental homes" for local rental home management companies. Besides having exclusive properties, local agencies provide top-notch service..

Negotiate

When you've spotted the rentalhome of your dreams, double check to make sure your vacation dates are available.

Although not true for all rental homes, many property owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Off-peak weeks are likely to be negotiable more often than peak-season..

You should know which services are included:

  • Power bills
  • WIFI Access
  • Long Distance Calls
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning Fees
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies

  • Parking Fees

Cancellations Happen

Cancellation policies vary with each rental. Vacation rental management companies and property owners typically offer their clients the choice to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance shields the renter against emergency situations and weather events, It gives peace of mind should disaster strike.

Complete the Booking

Once you believe you've identified "the one", begin the reservation process. Do not forget that most rental contracts will require a considerable rental deposit and/or security deposit to cover the home owner.

Get Contact Info

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

Congratulations! All that is left is making the most of your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. To ensure no damages are associated with your visit, create a record of any trouble spots of the property. If you discover damages, or if fixes are required call the rental manager right away. If there is a disagreement about legal liability later, having the recorded problems and communication attempts will be helpful.
  • You could need guidance for a gas fireplace, Television or hot tub. Get in touch with your rental manager. They are there to help. A brief phone call prevents many hassles.
  • Be considerate of the neighborhood. Permanent residents probably live within earshot. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your home.
  • Ask a local. Locals can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best nachos, have a great night out, or the best places for wildlife?
  • Enjoy your stay! Remember to protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the property secured when you are away, just like you would at home.

When its Time to Leave

  • Make sure you've packed all of your things. Sweep each room in the house for forgotten items. Check bathrooms, the garage, kitchen cabinets, porches, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • Make a point to walk through the rental one final time and look for damage. If at all possible, do this walk-out assessment with the property manager present. If the property manager is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Most vacation rental management companies and rental search sites permit travellers to offer reviews. If your vacation rental and/or property manager was top-notch, they will appreciate your compliments. If anything went wrong, we recommend being understanding but honest with regards to your rental experience. The best property owners and managers will work very hard to rectify the situation.

Learn and Improve

Hold a debrief with your traveling companions. Did they feel about the vacation rental? We hope this guide helped you find a terrific rental home. If not, you have acquired useful experience that will help with the next search.
