Top Ten Questions About Your Vacation

Q. Do I need to make a deposit on my vacation rental?

A. Typically we require a deposit equal to half of the total rental contract. Generally speaking, all deposits and contracts must be paid and returned to Coastline Realty within 14 days of the booking. The final balance will be due 30 days before arrival. If the property that you book is offering a SPECIAL, you will be required to pay in full within 24 hours of making the reservation. 

Q. Are linens included?

A. No, linens are generally not included. You are responsible for bringing bed and bathroom linens. Some homes do offer free linens, but that is the exception, not the norm.  Properties that include linens will have a note stating "Linens Provided." However, there are linen services available. Linen service costs $26.00 per bed, and includes sheets, pillowcases, and towels. Linens will be delivered to the residence on the day of check-in. Just let your reservationists know you are interested in linen service when you book your reservation. 

Q. Can I bring my dog?

A.Yes, we do offer a limited number of vacation homes that are pet-friendly. Looking for a specific location with a pet-friendly home? Our staff will be happy to help. Please remember that having pets in a non-pet rental is grounds for immediate eviction. Pets require a $175.00 fee per pet. 

Q. Are there any good restaurants or bars in the area. 

A. We have everything you can imagine, from steak to seafood. The area is, of course, famous for fresh seafood, and our local Stump Sound Oysters (which you must try). At check-in, you'll receive a packet which includes information on many of the area restaurants. Stay tuned to our blog as we will be featuring all the best places to eat on Topsail Island.

Q. How do I get to your office?

A. Our office is located at 965 Old Folkstone Road, in Sneads Ferry. Look for the Topsail Way Shopping Center approximately half a mile before the high-rise bridge that takes you to the island. 

Q. Are there grocery stores close by?

A. Yes, there is a Food Lion in the same shopping center where our office is located. This is a great time-saving convenience. Just check-in, grab some groceries, and you're ready to hit the beach!

Q. What is there to do in the area?

A. Your Topsail Island beach vacation is perfectly located to offer all sorts of exciting things to do. From history (Missle and More Museum) to fishing, boating, kayaking, world-class golf, and being strategically located near Wilmington. There are more things to do than you'll have time for. Its okay though, we don't mind if you need to stay longer than a week.  

Q. What time can I check in?

A. Check-in is at 4 pm. This allows our staff to professionally clean each property before your arrival. You are welcome to check with us the day of your arrival to see if your property has been cleaned and inspected earlier than 4 pm. However, we have no way of knowing what order the properties will be cleaned from week to week. Please plan on a 4 pm check-in time to be safe.  

Q. What is a damage deposit waiver plan?

A. Normally a damage deposit is required with all reservations. However, you can elect to purchase a Damage Deposit Waiver Plan. The plan costs $55.00 and covers up to $1,500 in accidental damages to the property. *Note not all properties are eligible. 


Travel Insurance: Why It's A Good Idea.

Every year thousands of travelers have vacations canceled, delayed or interrupted. Reasons for these interruptions or delays can be an extended school year, military deployment, sudden unemployment, inclement weather or death and illness. Thankfully these are rare events. However, they can happen. For this reason here at Coastline every one of our rental agreements includes a CSA Travel Insurance Policy. These reasonably priced policies are your only way to protect your vacation investment. The CSA Travel Insurance covers all sorts of losses, as well as provides other great benefits you might never have thought of. Want to find out more? Click here to see the CSA plan and remember to accept the Travel Insurance and rest well knowing your Topsail Island beach vacation is covered!
