His view was that if we were taking this seriously as a business venture and not as a hobby, then we had to evaluate the addition of every feature and facility from a strictly business perspective. If a new purchase did not have a positive impact on the bottom line, then it should be delegated to lower priority. Will it raise the rental rate? Will it increase bookings? How long will it take to pay off the investment? I’m not talking here about the essential purchases, although he did argue that spending $130 on a coffee machine with a built-in grinder, instead of $50 on a perfectly good alternative without a grinder might not ‘sell more chickens’. The jury is out on that one. What he did get us to see was that our major decisions must be guided by solid economics and not me just saying, ‘that would be really nice and our guests would love it http://ow.ly/NbzqQ
I’ve bought and rented out seven properties in the past dozen years or so, and am getting quite adept at knowing what will please our guests and keep them

The N.C. House’s proposed spending plan for 2015-16 could be promising for the state’s film industry. Included in the House’s recently approved $22.2 billion budget for next fiscal year is $40 million for filming–a boost from the already-spent $10 million grant in the current budget, but a drop in the originally recommended $60 million allocation. Lawmakers whittled that figure down to $40 million in committee last Thursday before taking the budget to the floor. While any boost is good news, Wilmington Regional Film Commission director Johnny Griffin said $60 million in funding would have nearly returned the state to the days of the film tax incentive program, which expired in December 2014 and was replaced with the $10 million North Carolina Film and Entertainment Grant. Between 2012 and 2014, the state awarded tax credits of between $60 and $65 million each year, Griffin said, with the exception of a hefty $20 million for the locally shot “Iron Man 3.”  The credit provided a 25 percent tax break for productions that spent at least $250,000, with a maximum per production of $20 million. “So, to get $60 million in funding from the legislature would put us back in the ballpark,” Griffin noted. “Anything less than that means that we obviously would do less business. At some point you do run out of the money and you do have to tell the clients, ‘That’s it; we’re done.’” He has had to say that often these days, as the $10 million grant was quickly parceled out to the locally shot CBS series, “Under the Dome” and two other projects shooting elsewhere in the state. http://ow.ly/Nuyjw

The Triangle once again emerges as a popular place to visit, dominating more than a quarter of the top-20 list of North Carolina's most popular historic tourist attractions in 2014, compiled by Carolina Publishing and Associates. Raleigh is home to four of the list's attractions, and two more are in Durham. One of these Triangle locations took home top honors.

BIZSPACE SPOTLIGHT SPONSOR LISTING Property Spotlight: North Hills Office Sublease See All Bizspace Properties This is the list's 11th year. The Biltmore house and gardens in Asheville, which was consistently a front-runner, has been removed from the list because CPA says it no longer provides annual attendance totals. In the 10 years it was counted on the list, Biltmore ranked No. 1 nine times – only dropping to second place in the 2011 list of top tourist attractions. The N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences came in at No. 1 that year. http://ow.ly/Nr0OW

Kure Beach, North Carolina 

Kure Beach, NC is located only 3 miles south of Carolina Beach, North Carolina (center to center), basically merging together. The town is part of New Hanover County. The population of Kure Beach is 2,063. Kure Beach is sometimes referred to as a "sleepy beach town" that is growing in popularity and price! While there is a permanent population of approximately 1,500 residents, the town still functions like any normal town with municipal services and fire protection. The town features a few restaurants, but no commercial entertainment... it's the perfect place to get-away ... or stay if you love the slow pace of life! Kure Beach doesn't have the option to expand as it is completely surrounded with the Fort Fisher State Recreation Area and Historic Site, US Government owns the west side, Carolina Beach borders the north, and of course the beautiful Atlantic Ocean forms the east border.

*****love...Love...L O V E***** We love it so much! So much that we have continued to stay at the same location (Victory Penthouse) for 5 years running. Accommodations are always super-clean and well prepared for our visit. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and ready to help! The best part is this...Victory Beach Vacations has dog-friendly rentals available! Bella, our golden retriever, thinks the V Penthouse is her second home...honestly, we feel the same way. Seriously, you should take some time off and Visit!

#214 Cabana Dilapidated Master mastress with questionable stains on coverlet (eww) : hammock like sofa bed- unsuitable for even the most elastic teen spines:only three, inconveniently located power outlets to charge our modern day electronics( so forget working on your PC anywhere but the kitchen counter top, bath room sink counter or behind the couch, Shower head with three syringe-like like streams feeling like darts hitting your tender skin, - no batteries in the living room remote, strobe-like flickering of the lamp fixtures giving rise to a John Carpenter "Halloween" moment. Other than those highlights- the view was fabulous.

Hi Devon, very sorry to hear you weren't pleased. Before guests check in we always send a property manager to check each unit to make sure it’s clean and in good condition, occasionally there may be something that the property manager can’t tell from inspection. For this reason upon check in we tell each guest to call us if there are any problems during your stay and we will come right out to fix it. We have never had any complaints about the mattress in the master, we notified the owners and they did replace it after you left. We advertise that sleeper sofas are for children, as they can be uncomfortable for adults. As we suggested a 2 bedroom would be more comfortable for you and your grown son, adults would be more comfortable sleeping in a bed not a sleeper sofa. The shower head was just replaced before you checked in and was malfunctioning, we are so sorry, in the future please call us and we will come right over to fix it. If there are ever any problems such as dead batteries or outlets not working just let us know, the GFI for the outlets had popped and was an easy fix. We want our guests to be happy and always do the best we can to fix any issues you may have. As discussed over the phone, Next time you stay with Victory please ask for the Manager and we will take wonderful care of you.

We are so pleased that we discovered Victory Beach Vacations! We had never been to any beach in North Carolina before, but after our daughter's family moved to Georgia, the Carolina/Kure Beach area emerged as a half-way point for the 3 families to meet. Jenna and the Victory Beach team were so helpful in finding us a nice, clean house big enough for all of us, and within walking distance of beach, pool, and playground. The Victory Beach team also helped us to rent the cribs and other baby equipment that we needed for 4 toddlers. They made it so easy for us to enjoy a totally new destination. We'll be back next year!

We have been using Victory Beach for the past five years. We have stayed in several of the properties but our favorite by far is the Sandcastle. The process to reserve the property is so easy and check in is quick! The staff that works there is always very nice and happy to see us. If we ever have a problem (which is something minor) they are always quick to send someone to fix it. The house is always neat and clean and we always enjoy our stay! We are looking forward to our stay next year!!!!!

We rented a beach side house this September and had an absolutely great time. It was a family reunion and the house and setting helped to make it a wonderful time. The house was everything it we expected and more. We are definitely returning next year and hopefully many more years to come

For 16 years we have been vacationing in Carolina Beach. For 15 of those years we have been using Victory Beach Vacations to rent the same unit year after year. We have never been disappointed. Check in and check out are seamless. Best of all - the unit is always clean and ready for our arrival. One year we had a maintenance issue, but it was taken care of easily that day and it didn't interrupt our vacation at all. We will always use Victory Beach and high recommend them to anyone searching for clean units and great customer service for their vacation experience.

My family stayed at SeaWatch 109 The Grape Escape for the first time this year and we loved it! The home is only a few years old and is in excellent condition. The spacious layout worked very well for our group, and we loved the location as it lies half way between the community pool and the beach. The walk to the beach is very short, and the pool is large, clean and never crowded. The house has many upgrades, and we greatly appreciated the kitchen being well stocked with cooking necessities. We have rented from Victory Beach Vacations for many years, and we have always enjoyed our experience with this company. Thank you to Victory Beach and to the owners of SeaWatch 109 The Grape Escape for helping to make our vacation wonderful!
