myrtle beach pet friendly rental policies

Reservations

Our homes are available for rental on a weekly basis in the summer and for a minimum of two nights during the off-season. During the summer, reservations run from Saturday to Saturday. All reservations require a down payment of 50% of the total rental cost to reserve. The balance is due 30 days prior to arrival. If you are reserving a property within 30 days of the arrival date, the total reservation amount is due.

Check-In

4:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m.. We aim to have each property cleaned and ready by 4:00 p.m. but, sometimes they need more time to ensure they are completely clean and ready for your arrival. Please understand in the rare case that a problem arises, we reserve the right to delay the check-in time until the cleaning process is completed. Therefore, please plan your travel accordingly.

Check-Out

9:00 a.m. or earlier. If you leave early, please contact us to let us know that you have departed. This helps the cleaning crews get an early start and helps to keep the check-in process on time. There will be a penalty for late departures.

Upon Arrival

Please check your unit upon arrival. If there is a problem, cleanliness issues, please report it immediately. We will make every effort to take care of any issues if reported immediately. We do not offer discounts or refunds. Any issues not reported will be your responsibility.
Many refrigerators are left open during cleaning. It can take as long as twelve (12) hours before your food will cool and the refrigerator returns to a medium temperature. If you fill it with warm groceries and continually open the refrigerator door, it will take much longer than 12 hours. Please check your refrigerator upon arrival – it should be set at a medium temperature setting. If the refrigerator is turned to a high (coldest) setting, the humidity will cause the coils to freeze up, which prevents cool air from reaching the refrigerator compartment while the freezer remains cold. If this should happen, please set the unit to a medium setting and allow time to defrost and stabilize.

Please do not leave the windows or doors open. It causes moisture/humidity issues inside the unit and your air conditioner to freeze up and quit working. If this happens, it will take about 24 hours before it will begin working again, which means you will not be enjoying a good night’s sleep.  

Occupancy

Occupancy is strictly limited to the number stated in the unit description. The only exception is an infant sleeping in a crib. We reserve the right to cancel any reservation made under false pretenses, for groups exceeding the occupancy of the house or other legal reasons.

Substitutions

If a home is made unavailable due to damage or change of ownership, we will attempt to locate comparable substitute accommodations. If no suitable substitute can be located, all deposits and payments shall be refunded.

Mandatory Evacuations

Late summer and fall is hurricane season. Having a storm threaten your vacation is a possibility, but a very rare occasion. In the event the State orders a mandatory evacuation of the area due to natural disasters including but not limited to, hurricanes, floods, or tornadoes, guests must vacate the premises immediately.  There will be no reimbursement for a mandatory evacuation due to any weather issues. You will need to purchase travel insurance to protect you from these unforeseen events.  We do not sell travel insurance, so  you will need to purchase it from a 3rd party insurance representative.

Deposits & Payments

We accept bank checks, Visa, and MasterCard. Personal checks are accepted up to 10 days before your arrival date. All deposits and payments may be placed in an interest bearing account. All sales are final.

Additional Costs

Rental rates do not include linens, cleaning, state/local taxes, optional Travel Insurance or damage deposit waivers.

Items to Bring

A “starter supply” of bath tissue, and paper towels are provided for your convenience. Some things you will need to bring are special kitchen items, salt, pepper, wraps, paper products, trash bags, soap, laundry and dish detergent, hair dryer, beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and sunscreen.

Furnishings & Equipment

Our rental homes have been decorated and equipped to satisfy the particular tastes and desires of their individual owners. The furnishings are not to be moved or rearranged and are subject to change without notice. Any locked closets are reserved for the storage of the owner’s private property and are not to be entered or damaged.

Grilling

Grill only in designated areas away from any building if your rented home allows it. For your safety, grilling is not permitted on decks, porches, balconies, pool areas, or on the beach.

Vehicles

Most homes have parking for 3 vehicles only.  Please remember that motor vehicles are not allowed on the beach. Guests bringing golf carts to private homes  need to know that operators must be at least 16 years of age, have a valid driver’s license and obey all S.C. traffic regulations. Operation is limited to daylight hours.

Restrictions

• Fireworks are prohibited.
• Discharge of firearms of any kind is prohibited.

Pets

While our properties are “Pet Friendly”, we ask that you only bring a pet that is well mannered.  Pets that continuously bark, chew on furnishings, or don't behave well around other guests are encouraged to stay home.  You are responsible for your pet. Please make sure they do not keep others from enjoying their stay or you could be asked to remove the pet from the premises.  In this case, we recommend that you board the pet at a local boarding facility or hire a local pet sitter.

No Smoking

Smoking inside the unit will result in a loss of damage deposit plus any additional sanitizing fees associated with cleaning and you will be asked to leave immediately. This is a non-smoking property.

House Parties

House parties are prohibited. Any group consisting predominately of unrelated people under the age of 25, whether chaperoned or not, is considered a house party. Should a house party occupy a rental home, the rental will terminate immediately without a refund. The person making the reservation shall be held liable for any damage to the property, its contents or surroundings.

Travel Insurance

We recommend you buy Travel Insurance for your reservation. We want you to experience all the joy and excitement of your planned and much anticipated vacation to the Myrtle Beach area. However, we know that unexpected events, illness, medical emergencies, delayed flights, hurricanes and severe weather can occur when you least expect them. These unfortunate events may cause you to cancel or interrupt your trip, forcing you to lose your vacation investment and incur unexpected expenses. Your vacation investment is protected when you buy Travel Protection, which covers you for trip cancellation, delay, and interruption. We highly recommend that you purchase this protection to safeguard against the unexpected.
