Every property is equipped with basic housekeeping items such as pillows, blankets, furniture, kitchen appliances, pots and pans, dishes, glasses, silverware and lawn or deck furniture. The condition of the property varies depending upon the age and care by the individual owner. Each rental unit is privately owned and reflects the owner’s personal tastes. Property reserved sight unseen is represented by Agent as realistically as possible with regards to space, physical conditions and comparisons. We will be unable to make substitutions or refunds upon arrival. Each tenant is expected to use the property as if it were their own and to leave it undamaged. Specific cleaning requirements are as follows: SEE HOUSEKEEPING.

A reservation change is treated like a new reservation, requiring a separate advance payment. Your payment on the original reservation will be refunded only if the property is re-rented, and the new payment is received. We strongly recommend that you are sure of your plans before you make any payments, because the payments are at risk if your plans change. Travel insurance can help reduce some, but not all, of your risk.
Back to Top


In case of cancellation, there is no refund, unless the same unit is re-rented, confirmed and paid in full, for the same number of days as your original reservation. If we re-rent the unit at the same rate your balance less any difference in rental rate, less the $75 reservation fee and 15% commission fee, will be returned to you. Cancellations and transfers must be confirmed in writing or email.

Guests bear the risk of mandatory evacuations. Travel Insurance is your only protection for lost rents. Travel Insurance charges are automatically added to your initial deposit payment. If you do not want to buy this coverage, you may delete the charge by indicating “Decline” and signing the Deposit Request Form that must be returned with your deposit. This amount will be credited to your final payment. Some, not all, other cancellation situations are covered by the insurance also. We strongly recommend it simply for the mandatory evacuation coverage. If you have any questions whatsoever about cancellation insurance, before purchasing or after purchasing, you should call the company directly 866-999-40148 CSA Travel Protection.

These are quiet family neighborhoods and beaches. If you reserve a unit for a house party and we discover it when you check in, you will be asked to vacate the unit. Your payments will not be refunded. If we discover a house party in a home, the house party is forced to leave with no refund of rent.. If you have any questions whatsoever about whether your group may be considered a house party, ask your reservationist for a clear understanding. Failure to do so could result in great disappointment during your vacation and loss of deposit and rent.
