The Sooner You Begin, The Better The Choices

Charleston area vacation rentals book months (and up to a year) in advance. To assure the greatest selection of vacation homes, we advise searching and reserving your Charleston area rental Six-12 months in advance, whenever feasible. Many families prefer to start their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Eve holiday gatherings.

Find your Spot and Identify Dates

Start by deciding which specific area of Charleston area you'd like to visit, and the determine trip dates.

Exactly How Much Rental Do You Actually Need?

Determine who is joining, and how many/what type of bedroom setup you will need. Keep in mind that many vacation rentals list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the living room space. You'll need to determine what is acceptable for your company. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically accessible on the internet. Otherwise, communicate with the property owner before you reserve the home.

Create a Spending Limit

Does your selected rental fit your budget during that choice Summer week? Make sure to get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends prior to booking an expensive rental property. Most rental agreements call for a single individual to be responsible for the entire reservation.

Let's Talk Amenities

What amenities is the family looking for? Do you simply want a rental with a pool, spa or volleyball court? Do you desire to be away from it all, or near civilization? Are bedsheets included with the rental contract, or will you need to bring your own? Gather a list of "needs and preferences" from your party to help filter your search to the most appropriate home.

Accessability

Re-read the description to confirm the vacation home has everything you need. If lacking, the property management company may know of very similar homes that suit your style and budget..

While not true for all properties, many property owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are hesitant to budge on a highly-desirable week, try getting an extra night. This is more effective through the off-season when many vacation rentals sit empty.

Reserve your Rental Home

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

During your Stay

  • Take notes of any problems immediately after you arrive. If you discover damage, or if fixes are needed get in touch with the home manager without delay. This will protect against disagreements during checkout.
  • Ask questions. Should there be any ambiguity about vehicle parking, rules of the property, property access, pool operations, etc... we advise you ask the property manager promptly. A phone call can save several hours of difficulty.
  • Remember to respect your neighbors. . Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by vacationers next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Local people can frequently point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to order the best chicken wings, have a great night out, or the best areas for wildlife?
  • Don't forget to protect the owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental secured when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Check Out Time

  • Tidy up a bit. Even when you're having to pay a cleaning fee, The property really needs to be in sound condition. Sinks filled with dirty dishes, substantial beach sand on the floor and sticky messes should be dealt with prior to leaving.
  • As soon as your things are all out, perform a walk-through of the rental home to be certain no property damage occurred in the course of your stay. Whenever possible, do this walk-out inspection with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you feel about your choice? Many rental home management companies and rental search sites make it easy for travellers to provide feedback.
