An educational Nature Center is located on the island for children of all ages to savor. Camp Fripp and Wee Links Golf are a must for the children.

Wallet-Friendly Tips

  • Many property managers and rental homes provide Beaufort, SC area travel magazines that feature coupons, either offered independently by vendors, or through a partnership between the property management company and the merchant itself. Search for these magazines and promotional books, as this allows vacation goers to experience those attractions with a often substantial discounted.
  • Are you able to alter your dates? Off-peak times offer up significant deals.
  • Active Duty and veterans of the US Military may be qualified for price reductions. Be sure to ask property owner to see if your vacationing crew qualifies for a discount.
  • Some properties are particularly suited for particular groups of travellers. Large event homes are ideal for weddings, wedding parties and corporate escapes. Some homes appeal to beach bums. Other properties are positioned close to night life. You will definitely get the best value from a home which most closely satisfies your ideal holiday setting, even if it costs a bit extra.
  • Think about getting trip insurance along with your lease agreement. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you between 1% - 5% of the basic stay rate, provides buyers reimbursement of their travel costs for any nights missed a result of health emergencies or hurricanes, in addition to ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, like an unplanned motel stay or extra fuel. Trip insurance might just be a bank account-saver if the unforseen happens (heaven forbid!).

The Rental Process

Many people are shocked to learn just how many vacation homes can be found in their area of interest. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rental properties available makes it possible to find an ideal retreat to suit their Beaufort, SC gang, from quiet condominiums to giant event homes with several bedrooms.

Rental homes are usually owner operated or managed by rental management companies. Vacation home management companies leverage scale, staff and experience to provide trouble-free operational management on behalf of the property owner..

Below are some tips and methods to help you understand the rental search and reservation process.

How to find and book the right rental property:

Do you believe "Oceanview *Total Renovation*Great Beach Location*" is the best rental property for your next getaway? Browse through this checklist to ensure it fits all of your needs.

Start Your Search Early

Beaufort, SC rental properties are reserved many months (and up to a year) in advance. For the best selection, start your planning and search 6-12 months in advance of your trip. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and reserve your vacation rental home..

Pick a Village and Time

Start by determining which specific area of Beaufort, SC you would like to visit, and the choose travel dates.

Selecting an Appropriately-Sized Rental property

Keep a list of attendees. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Be aware that many rentals advertise maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes sofa beds in the home's living room. It is important to determine what is suitable for your company. Specific descriptions of bedrooms and beds are commonly available online. Otherwise, get in touch with the property manager before you book.

Stay on a Budget

Many rentals are marketed with a price range. Determine the cost for your selected week. It may be at the top end of the range. If several individuals or loved ones are sharing the cost, make sure each group knows their responsibility and has approved a maximum they are prepared to pay. Most rental contracts require a single person to be responsible for the full reservation.

Let's Discuss Amenities

What amenities is the family searching for? Is a screened-in porch a requirement? Are you more enthusiastic about a natural landscape or night life? Are sheet sets offered with the rental, or do you need to take your own? Gather a list of prioritized "needs and wishes" from your party to help filter your search to the perfect rental.

Special Issues

Grandpa and Grandma will appreciate you for not reserving a stairs-access-only condo on the Third floor. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is needed, include that into your search. Almost all vacation rental postings include a list of amenities.

Paws-Friendly, Please

Remember to include your furry family members. Animals are welcome at a number of rentals, but policies differ. Be sure to study descriptions and contracts carefully. Charges may apply when pets are included. When in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Where to Search

As soon as the place, time and family members are decided, search multiple sources to find the best vacation rental selection. Together with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Beaufort, SC local vacation homes" for local vacation home management companies. Aside from having exclusive properties, local companies provide you with outstanding service..

Negotiate

Re-read the description to make certain that the vacation rental has everything you need. If something is missing, the rental home management company may know of comparable properties that fit your desires and budget..

Some rental home owners will negotiate prices, and some will not. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights might be. Your best prospects for a reduced rate is switching to an off-season week.

Study the Contract

Read the whole contract and make certain you fully understand who is liable for:

  • Utilities
  • Internet
  • Telephone service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Housekeeping
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

Get a total that includes taxes, animal and other extra fees.

If you must Cancel

Ensure you be aware of the cancellation policy prior to booking. Many rental home agreements include an option for trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs somewhere between 1% - 5% of your standard rental price, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental costs) for any nights missed as a consequence of personal medical emergencies or weather, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as a unanticipated motel stay or additional gas.

Complete the Booking

When everything looks right, it's finally time to sign a rental agreement. Keep in mind that most rental agreements will require a substantial rental down payment and/or security deposit to safeguard the rental home owner.

Where to Get Assistance

Put the property manager's contact info into your cell phone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your trip.

Good luck on booking your rental home! You're on the way to a terrific vacation!

During your Stay

  • Photograph on your arrival. Take notes of any wear and tear as soon as you arrive. We also advise promptly phoning the rental home manager with a report of any problems, together with your request for any required fixes. This can protect against disputes during check out.
  • Ask questions. You might need guidance for a gas fireplace, Television or jacuzzi. Get in touch with your home manager. They are there to help. A brief phone call helps prevent many complications.
  • Be respectful of the local community. Often, neighboring households are occupied by permanent residents. Remember the golden rule and treat others the same way you'd like to be treated by visitors next to your primary residence.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a terrific source of tips.
  • Remember to protect the property owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental home locked up when you are away, just like you would in your own home.

Check Out Time

  • Double-check each room of the rental to make certain that you've collected all valuables.
  • Make sure to walk through the rental one final time and check for property damage. Whenever possible, do this walk-out inspection with the property manager 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? Virtually all rental management company web sites request feedback after your stay is complete. Rental owners and property managers will thank you for glowing recommendations. If anything was wrong and they failed to correct it in a practical manner, or if the vacation rental was not as described, you should make it a point in your critique.

Learn from your Experience

Does everyone want to go back? Maybe everything was wonderful and you're all set to re-book the same rental for your next vacation. If not, you have gained invaluable experience to help with the next search.
