RESERVATIONS: A minimum of 50% down per reservation is required at the time of booking. Final payment is due thirty (30) days prior to check-in for your arrival. Sixty (60) days prior to the monthly rental check-in. To protect against the loss of your rental payments, travel insurance is strongly recommended. Each reservation is also subject to a cleaning and linen fee, 6% processing/administrative fees, and taxes at state/local rates of 12%.
CANCELLATION POLICY: All cancellations are subject to a cancellation fee of $100. Your prepaid rent, less the cancellation fee, will be returned if the reservation is canceled 31 days or more prior to arrival for weekly and daily reservations, and 61 days or more prior to arrival for monthly reservations. All reservations canceled within 30 days, or 60 days for monthly, of arrival will forfeit the advance payment unless we are able to rebook the dates. We will make every attempt to fill the dates and return your full payments less than the $100.00 cancellation fee.
AIR CONDITIONING/OPEN DOORS: Balcony doors and Exterior doors are to remain closed while running the AC/Heat. The high humidity causes the AC/Heat units to “freeze up” and can permanently damage them. Any damage caused during your stay, attributed to this issue by maintenance staff, will affect the return of the security deposit. Condensation collecting or dripping from the AC/Heat Vent on walls or ceilings are indications of potential problems. ****All Exterior Doors have Sensors which when the door is left open will automatically turn off the HVAC. Double-check the doors closely as even a tiny opening will trigger the sensor.
Opening the Exterior Front Door with the Balcony Door(s) open can cause a draft that can slam the exterior and interior doors. This can be dangerous and/or cause you to be locked out of the unit. DO NOT OPEN AN EXTERIOR DOOR OR THE BALCONY DOORS WHILE THE OTHER IS OPEN.
