You may be surprised to find out just how many rental properties are available at your destination. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rental properties available allows them to find an optimum getaway to suit their Charleston area gang, from low-noise condos to massive event homes with several bedrooms.
The vast majority of rental homes in Charleston area are privately operated and many are represented by well-known local property management companies. Property management companies are well-liked by rental owners mainly because they coordinate the advertising and operations..
Below are great tips and suggestions to help you navigate the rental home search and booking process.
Searching for and booking the best rental home:
Do you believe "The Southard Cottage by StayDuvet!" is the best rental home for your upcoming family vacation? Read this check list to confirm it fits all of your needs.
Search Early and Often
Charleston area rentals start booking very early. Reserving your rental home 6-12 months in advance is recommended, whenever possible. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your vacation rental..
Choose a Community and Time
Consensus can be tricky among relatives, but once this difficult part is finished everything will quickly slide in place.
Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter
Determine who is attending the vacation, and how many/what type of bedroom configuration you should have. Consider that a lot of rental homes list maximum guest capacity, which usually includes sofa beds in the family room. You will need to determine what is acceptable for the family. Most vacation home listings will describe each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and mattress sizes.
Have a Budget
Confirm that "The Southard Cottage by StayDuvet!" suits your budget *during your desired week*. Make sure that you get cost-sharing commitments from company before booking an expensive rental property. A single member of your party needs to be given the task of gathering payments and agreeing to responsibility for the entire rental payment at time of booking.
Let's Talk Amenities
What amenities is your family looking for? Are you looking for a rental property with outside dining area? Are you more interested in a natural landscape or night life? Are sheets included with the rental, or do you need to provide your own? Make a list of priority amenities to help filter your search.
Do individual people in your party have special needs? If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is needed, factor that into your search. Almost all rental home listings will include a list of amenities.
Go ahead and Take the Dog
Are you or other people in the crew travelling with a furry companion? Animal friends are welcome at a number of vacation rentals, but guidelines differ. Type of animal, size and breeds can be controlled. Make sure to read descriptions and contracts carefully. Service fees may apply when animals are added. Ask questions *prior to* you book!
The best places to Search
As soon as the place, travel dates and people are decided, search multiple resources to find the best rental selection. Besides Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we advise searching Google for "Charleston area local rentals" for local property management companies. Local companies often times have an exclusive collection of vacation homes daily and weekly.
Negotiate the Price
Re-read the description to be certain the rental has everything that you need. If it is something is missing, the rental management company might know of comparable properties that fit your wishes and budget..
While not true for all properties, many rental owners and property managers will make a deal on rates. If they are unwilling to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try asking for an additional night. Off-peak weeks are likely to be negotiable more frequently than peak-season..
Study the Agreement
Read through the complete contract and make certain you fully understand who is responsible for:
- Electric bills
- Phone service
- Pool Heating
- Cable and pay-per-view TV
- Cleaning Fees
- Trash collection
- Maintenance (get a phone number)
- Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
- Parking requirements
Get a total that includes state taxes, pet and other extra fees.
What's the Cancellation Policy?
Cancellation policies are different for each property. Rental home management companies and individual rental owners often offer their clients the choice to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance protects the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives you peace of mind should catastrophe strike.
Complete the Booking
When everything seems right, it's finally time for you to sign on the dotted line. Remember that most rental contracts require a significant rental deposit and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation rental owner.
Know Who to Call
Make sure to get the manager's contact phone number and entry/exit procedures for your vacation property. We recommend saving the contact's details in your phone and wallet.
Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!
