5 Reasons Why Vacation Rentals Beat Hotels

You may confront a bit of a dilemma as you start planning your next Myrtle Beach vacation: Should you book a vacation rental property or a hotel? The answer, however, is simple when you consider cost, amenities and the space you can only get from vacation rentals.

To assure you that vacation rentals are the way to go, we’ve assembled five big reasons why it’s smart to choose vacation rentals for your Myrtle Beach getaway.

Reason #1 to book a vacation rental: The cost.

Multi-Family Vacations

Booking a private vacation rental home using a property management company means more transparent pricing. You won’t get charged hidden fees depending on the amenities you use, so the price you pay doesn’t budge from the start.

If you’re traveling with a large group, it can get rather expensive to reserve several hotel rooms. By choosing a vacation rental home, you can involve more families, share the expenses and save money you can apply to future vacations!

Meals are the largest expense during a vacation. Having the option to cook your own meals in a vacation rental property relieves a huge burden from your budget. Recruit the whole family to help with dinner and visit Myrtle Beach restaurants only when you want to.

Reason #2 to book a vacation rental: Total flexibility.

Operating according to tight schedules is a good way to turn your perfect vacation into a drag. If you’re staying in a hotel, you can expect orchestrating your day around room service, the long lines for a mediocre breakfast and inconvenient pool hours.

A vacation home, meanwhile, gives you the freedom to sleep in, treat yourself to hearty meals at any time, and go for a late-night dip in the pool if you’d like. That’s vacation time.

Plus, vacation rentals in Myrtle Beach offer flexible periods of stay, whether you’re in town for a few nights or a few weeks.

Reason #3 to book a vacation rental: More space.

Vacation rental homes typically run about 2,000 square feet, while a hotel room is usually less than one quarter that size. In that small of a space, things can get pretty hectic with family members bickering over the bathroom or keeping everyone’s belongings separate. And who wants to sleep in a room with the person who snores?

At a rental property, family and friends can spend quality time in shared spaces, then retreat to bedrooms when you need a little breathing room.

Reason #4 to book a vacation rental: Better amenities.

These days, travelers want a balance of home-like conveniences with perks they can only get on vacation. These include:

• Fast (free) Wi-Fi connections
• Big kitchens
• Swimming pools, pool tables and hot tubs
• Free parking

You’re far more likely to find these amenities in vacation rentals.

Washing machines, coffee makers and driveways not only make life easier—they boost your comfort level. While these come as part of the package with most vacation rental properties, hotels tack on hidden fees for even the smallest conveniences like Internet access and movies. Find the perfect rental property with all your must-haves rather than settling for an impersonal hotel room for your family vacation.

Reason #5 to book a vacation rental: Tranquility.

Frequent guests of rental homes in Myrtle Beach relish the peace and privacy afforded by a place of their very own. It’s nice to enjoy a refreshing night’s sleep without loud guests coming and going down the hall in a busy hotel.

Are you in the market for a relaxing retreat? Or perhaps a fun-filled week of activities for the whole family? Enjoy both when you book a rental property. It’s the perfect choice no matter how you define vacation.

2019 Housing Forecast: Myrtle Beach Vacation Rentals

2019 Forecast for Myrtle Beach Vacation Rentals: 6 Expert Predictions

It’s not yet January, but your 2019 housing forecast has already arrived. For property owners in or entering the vacation rental market, knowing what potential guests value is the key to a successful experience—for you and your vacationers. What matters most to guests, whether millennials or extended families? What should you promote about your property and the surrounding area? And how can you make small changes to your property that will yield a big return on your investment? Read on for six major trends and timely predictions for Myrtle Beach, South Carolina vacation rentals in 2019.

1. Spacious and multi-purpose properties


Who doesn’t want more space? People looking to book vacation rentals certainly do. In 2019, expect to see the search for larger rental homes increase. Whether potential renters want space to accommodate extended family, embark on increasingly popular multigenerational travel or simply to create a little distance between the kids and adults, more is better.

And it’s not just more space that renters are seeking—it’s a variety of opportunities available within that space. The grand vacation rentals described by Forbes writer Christopher Elliott, including an estate in California’s wine country with sleeping room for 10, are mansions with their own pools, hot tubs, spas, outdoor bars and outdoor living rooms.

There are plenty of ways, however, to create this cozy look and feel without having thousands of square feet to spare. Think about how to break up your vacation property in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, so that different rooms have different functions. Here are some ideas:

  • A room stocked with rainy day games
  • A jewelry-making station for collected shells
  • A napping nook for children (and adults!)
  • A picnic patio for seafood nights
  • A porch for ice cream desserts and cocktails

If you’re thinking about renovating to meet some of these goals, creating more open kitchen and dining room areas for guests to gather is an ideal place to start.

2. Catering to millennials


The 2019 housing forecast reveals that there’s more to property rentals than large families. Consider millennials—travelers in their late 20s to early 30s—who come your way alone or with others to attend events, see the landscape or just hang out.

Many millennials are flexible and experienced travelers, even at their young age. They’ve had all kinds of vacation experiences, from staying in condos, beach houses and hotels as children to booking vacation properties online with ease as young adults. But they’re often looking for something different: rentals that accommodate a smaller budget and fewer vacation days.

Here’s how property owners can help: Have an option for shorter stays. Think about making multiple properties in the same complex available for groups on vacation. And absolutely don’t forget millennial-style amenities:

  • Speedy Wi-Fi and plenty of bandwidth for streaming
  • Mobile services for all property-related interactions, including booking and paying
  • Proximity to scooter, car and bike sharing resources

Millennials can also be nostalgic for locales from their childhoods. By mentioning neighborhood restaurants, beaches or arcades from their childhood vacations to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, you could book a stay—and even prompt a new tradition—built on memories.

3. Local outdoor and dining attractions


Nature sites are becoming big travel destinations for 2019. The Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and the Catskills in New York have been listed among Lonely Planet’s best affordable adventures for the new year.

The Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, vacation rental market can benefit from this trend. Adventures abound here, including:

  • The surf fishing, natural trails and equestrian facilities at Myrtle Beach State Park
  • The Dangerous Reef exhibit at Ripley’s Aquarium—a 340-foot underwater tunnel where you can walk surrounded by sharks, tarpons and green moray eels.
  • Day and night safari tours at Myrtle Beach Safari’s 50-acre tropical preserve
  • A variety of kayak tours, including the National Wildlife Refuge Kayak Tours, Historic Conway & Big Cypress Kayak Tours and the Sunset Refuge Kayak Tour

One trend that has become increasingly apparent as it takes over Instagram is the rise of foodies. Experiencing local food, adventurous dishes—and taking pictures of it all—is a particular priority for many vacationers. Myrtle Beach’s food and beverage venues are up to the task—and so are you in what you recommend to renters, such as:

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, also features food festivals and events galore. Depending on the week or month, guests might encounter a barbeque or shrimp festival, events centered around local Greek or Italian foods, or—if they’re lucky—the world-famous Blue Crab Festival.

4. Quality, consistent service


We live in a digital society, and companies continue to invest in technology that accelerates the speed of business. But outstanding customer service—the kind with a personal touch—is timeless. And in the world of vacation rentals, it’s an essential differentiator.

According to a publication summarizing the 2018 VRMA Conference: “Booking a vacation rental is more of a ‘considered purchase’ than booking a hotel room.” Property owners have to stay focused on the core tenets of customer satisfaction, like meeting or exceeding expectations with regards to the quality of the experience, the amenities offered and the level of service delivered.

This can mean:

  • Maintaining the property with timely repairs and upgrades
    Adding modern conveniences that enhance the stay, including key-based entry systems and digital thermostats
  • Simple benefits that guests will remember and appreciate, like free passes to the local gym, mid-week cleanings and delivery services for groceries and other essentials

In the property rental business, you cannot overestimate the importance of personal engagements and the value of making guests feel welcome and cared for. That’s not always easy for busy owners, so it’s vital to select property management experts with a reputation for delivering impeccable service.

Hospitality consultant Debby Hudspith defines this service as: “Knowing why the customer is there in the first place, making them feel important, building a relationship, responding to requests out of the ordinary and ensuring someone is always available for them, no matter which department.”

5. Value over luxury


What’s one of the most important elements of vacation rentals in 2019? Value. It’s not always luxury that guests are after, and since group trips are on the rise, dividing up a property’s nightly rate is an efficient and cost-effective way to get more space. Divided by 10 people, the cost of the California wine estate we mentioned earlier was just $68 per person per night. It’s hard for any hotel to beat that rate.

Property owners can offer value in a myriad of other ways for any kind of rental property. Including in the price of your rental amenities like a complimentary bottle of wine and/or a welcome basket of snacks might just be the reason your renters return next season.

Further ideas highlighted by Successful Meetings include:

  • A record player and an eclectic vinyl music selection
  • Customized cocktail packages brought right to their door
  • A pet fish as the property mascot

Choosing skincare products, robes and linens that reflect the changing seasons or come from a local source is a trendy bit of detail much appreciated by renters. And lots of these ideas will fit into any budget.

Other bonuses renters enjoy are practical elements that will make their stay easier—coffeemakers, blenders, bottled water and energy bars, fresh fruit, baked goods straight out of the oven and water bowls and treats for pets.

6. Benefits of booking direct


This year, local vacation rental property owners are taking the lead over online travel agencies (OTAs). Managers of large vacation properties revealed at the VRMA International Conference a decline in the overall use of OTAs.

Local owners have plenty to offer that OTAs and their customer service representatives just can’t, including personalized communication with guests and availability at every stage of the booking and renting process. More and more, guests will rely on owners and property managers for hyperlocal Myrtle Beach information, such as:

  • Last-minute dinner recommendations at Barefoot Landing
  • The inside scoop on the area’s best ice cream parlors
  • Recommendations for kid-friendly spaces and the coolest clubs for adults to dance the night away
  • The most unique local shops and top attractions at Broadway at the Beach
  • The most memorable spots to explore at Myrtle Beach State Park—surf fishing, nature trails, equestrian facilities

These are just a few of the trends and predictions we’re keeping an eye on for vacation rentals and travel in 2019. As the year gets going, the experts here at Vantage Vacation Rentals will be on the lookout for more opportunities to help you keep your guests satisfied while getting the most from your Myrtle Beach property.

In the meantime, we’re here to answer your questions, provide support and set you up for a successful year. Reach out to us at any time by calling 888.404.3110 or email us at Info@VantageMB.com.

10 Ways Vacation Rental Owners Can Upgrade for Instant Value

Small Upgrades that Create Big Value for Vacation Rental Owners

While many vacation rental owners may not have the funds or resources for major structural changes to their rental properties, there are several types of easy upgrades that can instantly add value. Below are our top recommendations for inexpensive improvements that will help maintain your vacation rental, impress your guests, and pave the way for repeat business in the future.

  • A fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into any vacation home – nothing improves your home’s appearance more than this. Painting is easy and inexpensive and sets the tone throughout the property. Consider adding an accent wall for a splash of color and an interesting design element.
  • Replacing older light fixtures not only improves lighting quality, but also gives your home an updated look and aesthetic appeal.
  • New cabinet doors, knobs and contact paper for shelves and drawers freshen up kitchens and make guests feel at home during their stay.
  • Upgrading to hardwood or tile flooring makes your property easier to maintain and gives it an updated look in online photos.  You will score big points with guests, as well!
  • Contemporary showerheads, toilet paper holders, towel racks or faucets may seem like small details, but they can give bathrooms a clean, personalized touch like that of an upscale hotel.
  • Flat-screen TVs add a modern, streamlined look to your home and greatly improve the viewing experience for guests while they relax on vacation.  With the cost of flat-screen TVs having come down dramatically in price, this is a great opportunity to swap out any older, boxy TVs that may be making your vacation rental look dated.
  • Programmable thermostats can add money-saving and functional elements to the home. Most are inexpensive and easy to install.
  • While it may not be possible to add square footage to your property – especially if it’s located in a condo building – storage within the home can be maximized by installing vertical shelving in workrooms, pantries, closets and garages.
  • Little touches, like updating light switches and doorknobs, can add a fresh feel to any room. Routinely upgrade the bedrooms with hotel-quality bedding, pillows, and mattresses or mattress toppers – all things that guests have come to expect when they travel. New door handles and locks can improve security, as well.
  • Save on energy costs by switching to energy-efficient light bulbs, routinely cleaning your refrigerator coils, and replacing older air conditioning or furnace filters.

4 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Vacation Rental Manager

Hiring a Vacation Rental Manager? Be Sure to Ask these 4 Questions.

Do you own a vacation rental in Myrtle Beach, SC? You may want to consider hiring a property management company to oversee its operations when you are unable to handle maintenance, communicate with guests and answer various questions. You do not want to end up with a management company that does not understand you and your needs, so here are some questions to ask every prospective organization.

1. What Are Your Fees?

You always want to know how much you will need to pay a property management company before signing a contract. The fees can range anywhere between 25 and 50 percent of the total rent. Consider how much you can afford to pay and still make a profit from your vacation rental.

2. What Do Your Other Clients Have To Say?

It is always advisable to seek out references. The management company should have no problem putting you in touch with current clients. These clients will offer their sincere opinions, and you will know whatever they say is the truth.

3. What Services Are Included in the Fees?

The fees you pay should cover most of the maintenance costs. Some aspects that should be included consist of marketing, maintenance, cleaning, in-person visits and pre-stay walk-throughs. Ask about everything, so you do not get caught off-guard about any extra fees that pop up.

4. What Is Vacation Rental Performance Like in the Area?

An experienced vacation rental property management company should be able to tell you everything about that industry in a specific city. They should be able to tell you when the slow and busy seasons are. You should also ask about any local regulations that could impact who you can rent to.

If you have a Myrtle Beach rental property and are looking for a vacation rental manager to partner with, Vantage Vacation Rentals can help.

Book Direct & Save on Your Vacation

Five Reasons Why Smart Travelers Book Direct

Browsing travel websites is a great way to get an overview of the types of places to rent in various vacation spots. You can see a whole bunch of places at once and sort by price, distance, availability, amenities and other factors.  But smart travelers know that the next step isn’t to click on “Book Now” on those sites but instead to book direct from the property owner or agency that manages the rental.  Here’s why:

  • Websites such as Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway and TripAdvisor add significant traveler fees when you book through them. So do many online travel agencies. You can save substantially by contacting the owner or manager to book direct.
  • Direct contact with the owner or manager makes it easy to communicate special needs without your requests getting “lost in translation.” This provides you with a faster, smoother experience.
  • Many of the best vacation rentals aren’t even listed on major sites because these listings are expensive for property owners. Along the North Carolina coast, for example, only 30% of all rental properties are listed on the major sites. You could be missing out.
  • Owners and managers offer helpful insider’s knowledge that can enhance your experience and save you valuable vacation dollars. Many have special offers, flash sales, and off-season discounts  that they don’t list on the major sites.
  • If you’re looking for a local’s perspective, property owners and managers can give you the most updated information on their rentals and community. They can tell you about new amenities, lesser-known area events, the best restaurants, and hidden gems around town.

In short, if a particular property management or vacation rental firm has a property – or a few properties – that look good to you, go to that company’s website (such as VantageMB.com!) to book direct. Chances are you’ll find more options, avoid hidden fees on travel websites, and have a smooth experience as you gear up for a great vacation.

Book smarter. #bookdirect. You’ll save on your vacation and have a much better experience.

Post-Tax Time Oceanfront Vacations

Taxes Done? Trade Your 1040 for SPF 40

Nothing is more relaxing than ocean waves and salt air, and we have great oceanfront properties that are a perfect way to reward yourself for getting your taxes done. (And if you’ve already received your refund, this is a great way to treat yourself.)

Bring that special someone, or invite all of your little deductions to come along. You’ll find a wide variety of vacation choices throughout Myrtle Beach, and we promise you won’t have to fill out any forms.

So put down that calculator, pick up your beach toys and reward yourself for a job well done. To deduct your tax-time stress, book online or speak with a Vacation Coordinator at (888) 404-3110.
