General Policies

Payments: 30% of your total booking is taken to secure the reservation using a credit card. There is also a $35 reservation fee associated with every reservation. Balance is due 30 days prior to the check-in date.


Arrival: Check-in time is 4 PM. Early check-in is possible IF the property is available but early arrivals are NEVER guaranteed. We ask that late arrivals (any arrival after 5:00 PM) contact our office to make key arrangements.


Departure: Check-out time is at 11 AM. A late check-out is possible if our schedule permits. All late check-outs must be arranged.


Cleaning fee and responsibility: There will be a cleaning fee added to each rental. The cleaning fee is based on the size of the house. Each property will be inspected and cleaned after your departure. You are REQUIRED to leave the property in the same general condition that you received it by making sure that dishes are washed and garbage is removed to trash receptacles and the home is generally picked up and ready to be cleaned. If additional cleaning is required, or rearranging of furniture that you have moved, appropriate charges will be deducted from your security deposit.


Garbage: All waste must be placed securely in the marked cans provided. Make note of the waste designation for each can. If any waste is placed in the wrong can, your security deposit may be charged for that task. Also, all waste cans come with a bungee cord to prevent raccoons and other animals from digging in the trash. Trash cans must be secured with the bungee. Do not overfill the waste cans where trash is accessible by animals. If there is a mess made by any animals because the trash can was not secured or over full, your security deposit may be charged for the cleanup. If the waste can is full, please place the trash in the garage and contact the office at 800-927-1303.


Deposit and refund: As a part of your stay, you may purchase a $49 Vacation Rental Damage Protection plan designed to cover unintentional damages to the rental unit interior that occur during your stay provided they are disclosed to management prior to check-out (recommended option). If you decide not to purchase damage protection insurance you will be required to pay a $3000 refundable security deposit, payable upon booking in the form of a cashier's check. Which will be returned via check 2-3 weeks after departure if there has been no damage to the property. If purchased, the policy will pay a maximum benefit up to the $3000 shown on the confirmation.  Any damages that exceed the $3000 or are not covered under the plan will be charged to the credit card on file. If during your stay at one of our rental properties, an insured person causes any damage to real or personal property of the unit as a result of inadvertent acts or omissions, the Insurer will reimburse the Insured for the cost of repair or replacement of such property up to a maximum benefit of the policy limit.  Certain terms and conditions apply.
