How to Book a Rental Home

First-timers are sometimes shocked at the range and selection of weekly properties available in the New Bern area. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rental homes available allows them to find an ideal retreat to suit their New Bern family, from low-noise condominiums to gigantic event homes with several bedrooms.

The majority of vacation homes in New Bern are privately owned and many are represented by experienced local rental management agencies. Property management companies are liked by owners because they manage the marketing and operations..

Here are some ideas and suggestions to help you understand the rental home search and booking process.

Finding and reserving the perfect rental property:

Do you believe "A Family-Friendly Dream Vacation - Oceanfront Beach Retreat - Private Tiki Bar/Cornhole and Horse..." is the best vacation property for your next trip? Look over this check list to confirm it fits all of your preferences.

Start Your Search Early

New Bern vacation homes book many months (and up to a year) in advance. To get the best selection, start your planning and search Six-Twelve months prior to your trip. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to plan and reserve your vacation home..

Find your Area and Confirm Dates

Begin by determining which specific area of New Bern you would like to browse, and the choose trip dates.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you need? Try to remember that a lot of vacation rentals list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living area. You will need to figure out what is most appropriate for the family. Most rental listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

Have a Spending Limit

Most rentals are marketed with a price range. Confirm the price for your chosen week. It could be at the high end of the range. If a few individuals or relatives are sharing the cost, always make sure that everyone understands their responsibility and has approved a maximum they are willing to pay. Most of the time, a single member of the group will be liable for making the whole reservation and getting each family member's contribution.

Vacation home Amenities

What home features is your family searching for? Do you primarily want a vacation home with a pool, spa or volleyball court? Are you more enthusiastic about wildlife or amusements? Does the rental have bikes and beach toys available during your stay? Gather a list of prioritized "necessities and desires" from your party to help narrow your search to the most suitable property.

Accessability

Grandma and Grandpa will appreciate you for not reserving a stairs-access-only condominium on the Third floor. If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is necessary, include that into your search. The majority of rental home postings will include a list of amenities.

Paws-Friendly, Please

Make sure you include your companion! Dog policies are different at each rental. Read descriptions carefully. Read your contract thoroughly! Additional charges may apply when pets are included. When in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Best places to Search

Once the place, time and guests are decided, search multiple sources to get the best vacation rental selection. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "New Bern local vacation rentals" for local rental home management companies. In addition to having exceptional rental properties, local agencies offer top-notch service..

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to make sure the vacation home has everything that you need. If lacking, the home management company might know of similar homes that better suit your desires and budget..

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

Read the Entire Contract

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

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Telephone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Cable and pay-per-view TV
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the normal price, guests will have to pay state taxes when renting "A Family-Friendly Dream Vacation - Oceanfront Beach Retreat - Private Tiki Bar/Cornhole and Horse...", in addition to any other fees which might be mandatory depending on their situation, including an animal fee, early check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private pool usage during the fall or spring months.

Cancelling your Rental property

Ensure that you are familiar with the cancellation policy before reserving. Vacation rental management companies and individual property owners typically offer their guests the option to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which typically costs between 1% - 5% of the standard vacation rental cost, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any days missed as a consequence of personal health care emergencies or weather, in addition to hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unexpected motel stay or extra gas.

Book your Rental

After you think you've identified "the one", start the booking process. Remember that most rental agreements require a considerable rental deposit and/or security deposit to protect the rental home owner.

Keep Your Contact's Information

Put the property manager's contact information into your smart phone and wallet for convenient access to answers throughout your trip.

Congratulations on booking your vacation rental! You're on your way to a phenomenal vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures on your arrival. To assure no damages are attributed to your stay, make a record of any trouble spots of the property. We also suggest immediately phoning the rental manager with a report of any problems, along with your request for any required fixes. This may protect against disagreements during checkout.
  • Ask questions. You could need instructions for a gas fireplace, Television or spa tub. Contact your property manager. They are there to assist. A phone call can save several hours of difficulty.
  • Don't forget to be a good next-door neighbor. Local people are likely to be as friendly to you as you are considerate of them. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your residence.
  • Ask a local. Local residences can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best nachos, have a great date night, or the best places for shopping?
  • Don't forget to protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the home secured while you are away, exactly like you would in your own home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Make sure that you've packed everything. Examine drawers, bath cabinets and cabinets.
  • As soon as your things are all out, do a walk-through of the rental home to make sure that no damage occurred during your stay. We recommend walking through with the property manager whenever possible (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How was your trip? Many rental home management companies and rental websites allow travellers to offer reviews. If your rental home and/or property manager was excellent, they will appreciate your compliments. If something went wrong, we recommend being pleasant but genuine with regards to your stay. The best owners and managers will try very hard to fix the situation.

Use Your Experience

Hold a debrief with your travel companions. Does everybody want to return next year? We hope this guide steered you to a fantastic rental. If not, you've gained useful experience that will help with your next search.
