Victory Beach Vacations is a rental management company based in Carolina Beach, N.C. It focuses exclusively on properties located on Pleasure Island, an area of the Federal Point Township that includes Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Fort Fisher. The company acts as a liaison between homeowners with property to rent and vacationers seeking a place to stay, and handles all communication and transactions between the two parties.

Renters can reserve a vacation home through a property directory on the company’s website, but payments must be sent through postal mail. Reservations can also be made via phone during Eastern Standard Time business hour

There are over 100 rentals listed in the company’s online directory, and they can be searched by building type, proximity to the ocean and by desired amenities. Pet-friendly units with or without a fenced yard are available, as well as handicap accessible homes equipped with elevators. All properties are strictly non-smoking. Linens are generally not included, but can be rented separately, along with bikes, umbrellas and other beach supplies.

Most locations require a minimum stay of one week if rented during the summer—shorter stays are only accepted to fill cancellations, or during non-holiday periods of the off-season. All rentals are intended for family vacations, and leases require a signature from an adult at least 25 years of age.

Victory Beach Vacations does not rent to fraternities, sororities or any other non-family group, including wedding receptions.

Because each property is furnished and priced by its individual owner, leasing terms vary. Note that prices listed on the website do not include taxes, damage deposits or other extra charges.

Reservations made online will be confirmed with a telephone call from a receptionist within 24 hours of booking, and will require the renter to sign a lease and pay a deposit. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the first day of the rental period.

Accepted payment methods include personal check, traveler’s check, money order, cash, VISA and MasterCard. Be aware that there are some exceptions—credit cards are not accepted for any transactions that occur more than 30 days before the rental period begins, while personal checks are not accepted for transactions that occur less than 30 days before the rental period begins. In the event that a cancellation is necessary, a refund will not be issued unless the property is re-rented by another party. In this case, all payments will be refunded minus cancellation and administrative fees.

Victory Beach Vacations maintains a company blog and interacts with customers on a variety of social media sites. Although it is not accredited with the Better Business Bureau, it maintains a high rating on their site and receives consistently positive feedback from its clients.
