arrive! Upon check-in, your balance will be collected by any
of the following methods: cash, credit card, travelers checks,
money order, or cashier's check/bank draft. If you would like
to pay your balance by personal check, this must be received
by our office at least 3 weeks prior to your arrival date (to
allow time for the check to clear).
What if I need to cancel?
We understand that sometimes situations arise that prohibit
people from traveling. If you need to cancel and are able to
notify us over 30 days prior to your arrival date, we will be
more than happy to apply your deposit to a future reservation.
If you have to cancel your reservation and it is 30 days or
less prior to arrival, this will forfeit your deposit.
How will I know what home I will be staying
In most cases, we do not provide the actual address of the home
until arrival because things can change at any point. The allocation
of the homes is based on availability, any outstanding maintenance
on the homes, and any guest requests. We do our best to honor
any requests that a guest may have, such as a particular view,
location, or bed arrangement, but this is not always possible.
If you have found
a home on our website that you would like to book, we will be
more than happy to guarantee this home provided the following
conditions: the home is available for your dates of travel,
the home is still under our management when you arrive, and
there are no emergency maintenance issues (i.e. broken air conditioning)
that would prohibit us from putting guests in the home. A particular
home can be guaranteed for an additional $10.00 per night on
top of the nightly rate. Once you have booked a specific home,
we will notify the homeowner of this booking so that you are
guaranteed this home. In the event that the property is not
available, we will supply you with other available alternatives.
How old are the homes?
Our homes have an average age of approximately 3-5 years or
less. We even have houses that are just a few months old! We
are constantly taking on new properties to be able to offer
our guest the newest and best amenities.
What is provided in the home?
The better question would be -- what ISN'T provided?! Each home
comes complete with a fully equipped kitchen including a refrigerator,
freezer, oven, range, microwave, dishwasher, cookware, toaster,
coffee maker, blender, dishes, silverware, glasses, and utensils.
There is also a full size washer and dryer right in the home.
Each bedroom will sleep up to 2 people in either a double bed
(king, queen, or full) or a pair of twin beds, not to mention
the queen size sleeper sofa which sleeps an additional 2 people.
The home also comes with an alarm clock, iron, ironing board,
hairdryer, and even linens and towels!
What do I need to supply
While we try and provide each guest with everything they will
need, there are some items that are not provided in the homes.
While bath and hand towels are provided, you may want to bring
your own beach towels and wash cloths as these are not always
provided in the homes. Starters of toilet paper, trash bags,
and soap are provided, but you may need to supply more of these
as your stay progresses. In addition, any basic toiletry items
such as shampoo, conditioner, etc. must also be provided by
the guest, as well as food.
How do I check-in?
Checking in couldn't be simpler. Once the your balance

and anything else your might need to have a great stay in one
of our many properties.

the attractions from the home?
