DAMAGE DEPOSIT: Guest will be required to pay a $500.00 security damage deposit. This is refundable as long as there is no damage to the property or its contents. No house parties! If you are caught breaking any house rules, laws (state or federal), you will be asked to leave immediately and you will lose your deposits. If there are damages to the property amounting to more than your deposit amount, you will be responsible for the difference. If the repairs keep us from being able to rent the property the following weeks, it will be your responsibility to pay for the loss of rents due to your damages.
CANCELLATION AND TRANSFER POLICY: Confirmed reservations are not transferable. Confirmed
reservations may request a cancellation by written notice. Upon your booking confirmation, the unit is taken off the market to anyone else; therefore, the advance deposit will be refunded only if the unit is re-rented at the full rental amount. If we are successful in re-renting the unit, all refunds are subject to a $100.00 cancellation fee. If you think you may need to cancel, I recommend that you don’t chance it and that you protect your payment by purchasing travel insurance. We do not sell travel insurance, so you will need to purchase that from a third party travel insurance agency within a couple days of the booking.

ONLY. We do not rent to house parties. Any violation will result in termination of rental agreement without
refund. You must be 25 years old or older to rent one of our properties. The person renting the property MUST be staying for the full stay. Parents, please don’t book our properties for your children for Spring Break or Senior Week. They will just be sent home without refund.

DEPARTURE CLEANING: You must take all trash and food and any other debris out of the home that wasn’t there when you checked in. All trash must be put in the trash bins outside. All linens must be left inside the unit. The cleaning crew will wash the linens and clean the unit. Please be kind to the cleaning crews. Don’t leave them a mess. If the unit is left is poor condition you may be subject to paying and addition cleaning fee. Please take care of the linens, towels and bedspreads. If they are damaged or missing, you will be responsible for paying for them.
REFRIGERATORS: 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. If the refrigerator is turned to a high 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. Don’t keep opening it.
KITCHENS: All kitchens should be fully equipped for daily meals and serving. The following items should be in each unit to accommodate at least the maximum occupancy: coffee maker, toaster, dishes, glasses, flatware, serving dishes, pots and pans, and cooking utensils. Some homes provide additional kitchen items. However, if needed, you may want to consider bringing with you items such as: food processor, extra large or specialty pots and pans, specialty knives and cooking utensils, etc.

LOCKED CLOSETS: The owner has their personal items locked in a closet for their convenience. These areas are not included in any rental.

We recommend that you buy travel insurance if you are concerned that you may not be able to make it for your scheduled vacation or may not be able to stay for the whole time. We do not sell travel insurance, however we highly recommend it to people renting during Hurricane Season or during times of bad weather that may prevent you from getting to our rental home. Travel insurance will help protect your investment in this vacation. You will need to contact a travel insurance provider to purchase insurance. We recommend that you purchase a “cancel for any reason” type policy and that you do this within a day of making a reservation, if you choose to purchase insurance. Your reservation with us is non-refundable. So please purchase travel insurance if you think you may need it.
Summer Season: Do not leave the windows or doors open. It causes two major problems:
It causes a moisture/humidity issues inside the unit. It causes your air conditioner and refrigerator 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.
Departure: Wash all dishes and put them away before checking out. If you use the grill, you are responsible for turning the gas off when finished and cleaning the grill after using it.
Furniture: Do not move furniture around. If you do, please put it back where it came from. Please pick it up and don’t slide it across the floors.
Pets: Please don’t ruin it for others. Being pet friendly is rare. So clean up after your pets. Do not bring mean or loud pets. If your pet constantly barks or is a danger to other guests or neighbors and we get complaints, we will have to ask you to remove the pet and have it boarded at a local pet kennel.
