Reservations: Your reservation is very easily made by phone. Just call our office, and we will discuss with you the availability. We will ask you for a head-count so please have some idea of the number in your party. In order to be fair, it is necessary to make reservations on a first come, first service basis and therefore the most satisfactory way to make a reservation is by telephone. Generally the large houses book up sooner than smaller places and the best selection always goes to the early bird. (One year advance reservations are available with a deposit.) All reservations are made firm in February of each year.
REMEMBER THAT CANCELATIONS CAN OCCUR AND MANY "IN SEASON" WEEKS CAN BE RESERVED AS LATE AS A FEW DAYS IN ADVANCE.
Falsified Reservations: Any reservation obtained under false pretense will be subject to forfeiture of reservation deposit, damage deposit, and / or balance of rental payment. Guest will not be permitted to check in.
Deposits: One half of the rent is required to hold a reservation. Any reservation made one year in advance requires a $50 deposit to hold until February 1st of next year. At that time one half of the rent is due.
Payment Methods: Cash, Travelers Checks, Money Orders, MasterCard, Visa, Discover or Cashier Checks. Personal checks will be accepted 30 days before occupancy. (see paragraph below.)
Check Cashing: We deal with very little cash and are unable to cash checks. We recommend travelers checks for use during your vacation.
Cancellations: If it is necessary to cancel your reservations, a full refund will be made, less $50 for expenses, if canceled more than 60 days prior to the beginning date of the reservation. If cancellation is necessary less than 60 days prior to rental, there will be no refund unless we are able to rent the house for the canceled period then there will be a $250.00 non-refundable cancelation fee held.

Checking In: Please plan to arrive at your condo anytime after 3 PM. Do not purchase your perishable groceries in anticipation of an early check-in.

Most of our condos now have a key pad and you will be provided a code to access your unit the day before you arrive and you can go straight to your unit upon arrival. We encourage you to send the balance of your rental 30 days prior to your check-in. This will speed up the check-in time and allow us to send your code and property address. We will accept payment in full from one individual. We can not accept multiple payments from different individuals.
