Begin Your Search Early

Beaufort, SC rental homes start booking very early. For the best selection, begin your planning and search Six-Twelve months in advance of your trip. A lot of households plan to begin their search during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.

Pick a Village and Time

Start by determining which specific area of Beaufort, SC you prefer to visit, and the approximate dates you'll be vacationing.

Bedrooms and Bed Sizes Matter

How many relatives are joining your getaway? Remember that that many vacation rentals list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living room space. You will need to figure out what is acceptable for the family. Precise descriptions of bedrooms and beds are typically accessible on the internet. Otherwise, get in touch with the property manager before you reserve the home.

Create a Budget

Most rental properties are marketed with a price range. Confirm the cost for your chosen stay. It may be at the top end of the range. If multiple individuals or families are sharing the cost, make certain each group understands their obligations and has approved a maximum they are prepared to contribute. Most rental agreements call for a single individual to be responsible for the entire reservation.

Make a List of "Wants" and "Necessities"

What amenities is your family interested in? Is a screened-in deck a necessity? Are you more interested in wildlife or nightlife? Are items like beach chairs, gas grills, beach umbrellas, buggies or coolers available and included in your rental property charge? Make a list of "needs and wants" from your group to help narrow your search to the most suitable rental.

Special Issues

Suitable access could make or ruin a trip for the less-mobile. If wheel chair access, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is necessary, include that into your search. Most vacation rental postings will include a list of amenities.

Your Puppy Deserves a Holiday, Too

Do not forget to include your companion! Although a number of vacation homes permit dogs, rules and costs vary per rental. Many limitations could eliminate a potential rental home. Examine your agreement carefully! Service fees may apply when animals are included. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Start your Search

Once the place, time and attendees are decided, search multiple resources for the very best vacation rental selection. In addition to Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Beaufort, SC local rental properties" for local vacation rental management companies. Local agencies usually have an exclusive assortment of vacation rentals daily and weekly.

Negotiate the Price

Re-read the description to be sure the vacation home has everything you need. If lacking, the rental management company may know of comparable homes that fit your wishes and budget..

Some rental home owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If the rate isn't negotiable, the number of nights may be. Your best chance for a lower rate is changing to an off-season week.

Study the Entire Contract

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

  • Utility bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Phone service
  • Pool Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Cleaning services and housekeeping
  • Trash collection
  • Maintenance policies
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Space

Get a total that incorporates taxes, pet and other extra fees.

What is the Cancellation Policy?

Make sure you understand the cancellation policy before reserving. Rental home management companies and individual home owners commonly offer their clients the choice to purchase trip insurance. Trip insurance, which generally costs between 1% - 5% of your base rental rate, can provide guests with reimbursement of their vacation costs (and subsequent rental property costs) for any days missed as a consequence of personal health-related emergencies or weather, and additionally hurricane evacuation expenses, such as a unforeseen hotel stay or extra gas.

Reserve your Vacation Property

When everything seems correct, it's finally time for you to sign a rental agreement. You will probably have to submit a security deposit at time of reservation.

Where to Get Help

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

Congrats! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

  • Ask questions. You could need instructions for a fireplace, Television or hot tub. Call your rental manager. They are there to assist. A quick phone call prevents many head aches.
  • Be respectful of the community. Local people will likely be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a stay a good deal more pleasant.
  • Ask a local. Local people are a good source of suggestions.
  • Enjoy your stay! Make sure that you protect the rental owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental home secured while you are away, just like you would at home.

At the end of your stay

  • Double-check every space of the rental to make sure you've collected all possessions.
  • Make a point to walk through the rental home one final time and check for damage. When possible, do this walk-out review with the property manager present. If the property owner is not available, be sure to take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • Did you love your rental? Many rental management companies and rental home sites permit renters to give feedback.
