Vacation Policies and Services



  • RENTAL RATES include departure cleaning. Rates do not include taxes or reservation fee and are subject to change. Summer rentals are weekly from Saturday to Saturday. Summer mini-vacations of less than a week may be available and can usually be booked within 2 weeks of arrival. Please call for availabilty and rates. Off-season minimum is two nights for most properties but may vary for holidays and special events.
  • YOUR INITIAL PAYMENT amount is based upon how far in advance you reserve. Details regarding payment amounts and due dates will be provided with your confirmation email or letter. Acceptable methods of payment include check, money order, VISA®, MasterCard®, Discover®, or American Express®. Checks are NOT accepted upon arrival. Upon receipt of payments, we will mail or email confirmation indicating rental charges, vacation insurance, fees and taxes. Charges for requested special services (bed & bath linens, golf, etc.) and security deposit also will be listed.
    A SECURITY DEPOSIT of $500 or more is required. If you prefer, a credit card authorization can be taken on arrival in lieu of a cash deposit. Charges will be applied to your credit card or security deposit only if there are damages, missing items, excessive cleaning requirements, or unpaid balances. Security deposits will be refunded within 30 days of departure less any charges.
    IF A RENTAL PROPERTY IS SOLD, removed from our Vacation Rental program, or otherwise becomes unavailable for occupancy, we will substitute a comparable property or offer a refund. We will make every effort to contact you in advance for such situations.
  • CANCELLATIONS & CHANGES: If you must cancel your reservation, you may do so by calling or writing us. If you cancel your reservation within 7 days of booking, you will receive a full refund. Thereafter, refunds are only for amounts paid in excess of the amount due at the time of cancellation per the reservation payment schedule. Changes are subject to the same policy as cancellations. Including vacation insurance may prevent some or most losses due to cancellation.
  • BED & BATH LINENS: You have the option of bringing your own bed & bath linens or adding a convenient linen package to your reservation. You may add linens for individual beds or save 10% with a Whole House Package which includes linens for all beds. Linen packages are delivered in wrapped bundles to assure cleanliness and include sheets and pillowcases. Washcloths and 2 bath towels are included with single bed linens; washcloths and 4 bath towels are included with double, queen and kind bed linens. Bath mats are included with linens.
  • FURNISHINGS & EQUIPMENT: Vacation rentals are privately owned and furnished. As such, we cannot make changes.

Most have a washer & dryer or access to a common laundry facility. Beds have pillows, mattress cover and bedspread. Multiple TVs, other electronics and internet service are noted if available.
