to cancel your reservation prior to 14 days of arrival you may reschedule the
reservation within 1 year and apply the deposit to that future stay with no
penalty or receive a refund less a $50 processing fee. If you cancel within 14
days of your arrival you must rebook your reservation for a future date
applying all advanced deposits to the future booking. There are no
cancellations within 10 days of holidays unless we can rebook the unit for the
full duration of your scheduled stay.

Reservations: To make a reservation, simply pay a
deposit equal to the first nights rental plus all fees and taxes. Payment in
full to secure the unit is required no less than 10 days prior to arrival. If
guest would like final payment to be charged to any other credit card, other
than the card on file, then it is the guest responsibility to phone in the
other payments on or before 10 days prior to arrival. Otherwise we will
automatically charge the balance due to the original credit card on file. If
unable to charge balance due to credit card on file, we will make every attempt
to contact guest for final payment, as reservations not paid in full at least
10 days prior to arrival, are subject to cancellation without notice. If
booking is made 14 days or less prior to arrival, then the entire balance will
be charged at the time of booking.
