Frequently Asked Questions

How much of a deposit is needed to make a reservation?

$300 is our initial deposit amount. There will be an additional amount of travel insurance if you opt in to the protection at the time of the booking.

If you make the booking 30 days or less prior to arrival the payment is due in full at the time the reservation is made. There are no cancellations from this time unless the travel insurance is in place.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you cancel your reservation 60 days or more prior to your arrival date you will forfeit $50 of your $300 deposit plus any insurance amount. You can place a claim for the $250.00 on your insurance if it is in place if it is a covered cancellation reason.

If you cancel your reservation between 30-60 days prior to arrival you will forfeit your $300 deposit plus any insurance amount. You can place a claim for the $300.00 on your insurance if it is in place if it is a covered cancellation reason.

Once your reservation is paid in full and you are within the 30 days there is no refunds unless you have the travel insurance in place. If we re-rent any of the time you could receive a partial refund less the $300 deposit.

I have made my reservation now what?

You will receive a confirmation by email requesting your signature on a security deposit form in lieu of a cash security deposit to be completed with final payment 30 days prior to arrival date. If you have booked 30 days or less prior to arrival you will receive the same document to sign. This form must be completed prior to check in as you check in at the property.
