How do I reserve this property? What is the method of payment? Is there an advantage to booking direct with the owner?
We have an online booking calendar on this website. Select your dates and book your home online via a major credit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit or debit cards.
Booking directly with the owner can save you up to 10% over other websites such as VRBO, HomeAway, AirBNB, and FlipKEY which all charge the customer a booking fee.
We do not have a third-party booking or transaction fee.
What is your cancellation policy?
Please contact our office as soon as possible if you must cancel or change your reservation. If you cancel your reservation more than 60 days prior to the arrival date, you will receive a refund of all monies paid less a $250 cancellation fee. If you cancel your reservation within 60 days of the arrival date, you will lose all monies paid unless you have purchased Trip Insurance. (See below information regarding Trip Insurance). You must email us a notice of cancellation.
Do you offer Trip Insurance?
Two types of trip insurance are offered via TravelGuard during the online booking process. Trip insurance is optional, but we highly recommend purchasing it. You can review the specific details during the online booking.
Do you require a damage deposit?
No, we do not require a damage deposit. A non-refundable damage insurance fee is included in the total rental cost. The damage insurance will cover reimbursement for non-intentional damages (see terms during the online booking). You will receive the terms and conditions associated with damage coverage upon making your reservation. Please notify us immediately if any damages occur.
