Tips and Tricks for getting the best Ocracoke rental home experience:
Get the most from your vacation rental budget:
- Summertime is high season in Ocracoke. To book the best rental home within your budget, we strongly suggest reserving in the Fall or Spring. You'll benefit from lower rates, better selection, warm weather and the absence of large crowds at Ocracoke restaurants, tours, and activities. Many vacationers use this strategy to find larger homes within budget, or to reserve an oceanfront vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during June, July, and August.
- The earlier your group can book a vacation home, the better your selection will be. The best rental homes are booked early. Reserving your vacation property up to twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental.
- Some owners offer special rates for veterans. Check with your host or property manager to see if special discounts are available for your family before you book.
- Management companies and individual rental owners frequently offer renters an option to buy vacation insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally will cost you between 1% - 5% of the base booking price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any days missed as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel stay or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance might be a a welcome relief if the unforeseen happens. Ask your host for details.
- Look for your local Ocracoke visitors guide upon checking in. If your rental home doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local grocery stores, shopping centers, and visitor centers. In addition to great local stories, visitors guides have offers and deals for nearby accommodations, tours and attractions.
Choosing the perfect vacation rental in Ocracoke:
- Select a designated group leader, choose your vacation week, and choose a budget.
- Determine how many bedrooms and the configuration your group requires. Jonathan Livingston Seagull: Dog friendly single story home. has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
- Precise details about bedrooms and bed counts is usually accessible on booking websites. If they are not listed, contact the host before booking the vacation home. Remember that most property listings specify the max. guest capacity, which frequently includes sofa beds. You will need to determine which bed configuration is optimal for your group.
- If there's a certain Ocracoke beach you are enamored with, look for properties that are either near by, or those that cater to your requirements.
- Suitable accessibility can make or break a vacation for those with limited mobility. Make certain to ask about specialized equipment and wheel chair accessibility.
- If your group is traveling with pets, you must reserve a pet-friendly property. Request details on breed, size, and type restrictions. Be aware that some property owners charge additional pet fees.
- Add the property manager's information to your phone. Take a copy of arrival/departure procedures.
- To make sure that damages are not attributed to your family's visit, note any problem areas when you arrive. Speak to the rental manager right away to report your findings. If there is a dispute, having the recorded problems and contact attempts will be helpful.
- Property managers are great sources of help! Feel free to ask any questions during your stay.
- Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations can make a stay more pleasurable. Be a good neighbor. You'll enhance your chance to make some new local friends, and resident neighbors are usually an incredible resource to find the best local attractions.
- Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Residents can frequently help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to take kids for a treat, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
- Lock your rental while you're out. Protect the owner's property and your stuff!
- Double-check the vacation property to confirm that you've packed all personal items at departure. Re-check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden treasure. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
- Please make sure to walk through the property one final time and look for any damage. We advise walking through with the property manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the host is not available, take photographs of the rental to record its condition.
- Remember to leave a review! Property managers rely on excellent feedback to compel more reservations. They'll be thankful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other families will appreciate that you share your feedback and help them have the best future vacation. Remember to be objective. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the property manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded reasonably to fix it.
