10 Things Every Beach Vacationer Should Know

Planning a trip to the beach is a fun adventure, but there are some things you should know to get the most out of your vacation. This week we dive into the nitty gritty of planning a Topsail Island beach vacation. 

Here are ten things every beach vacationer should know!

Do I need to bring linens?

For most of our properties, bed sheets and bath linens are not included in the rental price. However, we do offer linen rental service at competitive prices with no delivery or set up fees. If you are interested in renting linens, the price can be found on the information page for the property you are considering. Linen package prices include the linens for each bed located at the property (including any pull out sofas). In addition to sheets and pillowcases, each twin bed includes one towel set (which includes a bath towel, hand towel and wash cloth), and each full, queen, and/or king bed includes two towel sets. Please ask your reservationist for any additional information about your Topsail Island rental.

Can i rent equipment?

While Seashore Realty Vacations does not rent beach equipment onsite, there are several places in and around Topsail Island that rent equipment. From Kayaks to jet skis, beach umbrellas to stand up paddle boards everything you need can be rented on Topsail Island. 

Can i bring a golf cart?

Yes. However, please check with us regarding specific properties. Some locations do have restrictions regarding parking and use of golf carts. For more information about bringing your golf cart, check with the municipality you are renting your vacation home in. 

Do you offer travel insurance

Yes! When planning in advance for your vacation, unforeseen circumstances may arise that may put your vacation investment at financial risk. To protect your investment, we offer Trip Interruption Insurance with every reservation. This protection offers recovery of your vacation costs for things like: death of a family member, medical issues, mandatory hurricane evacuations, and more. 

How do i make a reservation?

For booking your reservation, you have several choices. You can book here online, by email, or by phone. Before making your reservation, we will need your full legal name, home address, home phone number, cell phone number, and your email address. Once we have this information, whether it is completed online, email, or by phone, you will be sent a confirmation, rental agreement, and instructions for completing your reservation. With the use of email and our internet portal, it allows us to expedite your reservation requirements quickly and efficiently.

Are pets allowed?

Some of the Seashore Realty Group vacation homes are pet-friendly and are noted so in the property description. If you choose to bring your pet, specific information is required regarding the type of pet. In addition, a Pet Rider must be included with your rental agreement and an additional pet fee will be added to the cost of your vacation.

Is there a minimum rental contract?

During the Peak and Value Seasons, all of our rentals are for full weeks with Saturday being the check-in/check-out day. Exceptions can be made on some of the properties. Some of our properties will allow additional nights and periods for less than a week during these seasons. Mid Season and Off Season allows partial week rentals when available.

Remember water safety?

Taking the kids to the beach and the pool is one of the great joys of a Topsail island beach vacation. However, it is important to keep water safety in mind. The ocean is a dynamic environment and being safe is important. The same is true when playing around the pool. 

Can i dock my boat at my vacation home?

Yes. Some of our canal properties have private boat docks that can accommodate boats. You are allowed to take advantage of this as long as the dock can accommodate the length, availability, and draft required  for the boat. Any questions about a specific property with a dock need to be referred to our staff who will be happy to answer your questions about a particular property. 

When is check in?

Normal check-in time for our properties is 4:00 p.m. Sometimes, depending on cleaning schedules and tenants checking out, an earlier check-in time can be provided, but cannot be guaranteed until the day before check-in. We will provide a check-in package to be picked up at one of our offices located at either: 302 N. New River Drive, Surf City, or St. Regis Resort (Building 2), 2000 New River Inlet Road in North Topsail Beach. The pickup location of your packet will be determined by the location of your vacation property.
