Refund Policy: We're pleased to refund 90% of your payment if your cancellation is outside 45 days of arrival with a $50 cancellation fee.(For monthly, within 60 days). Regrettably, we can not offer refunds inside 45 days, as it's difficult to rent vacation properties on short notice. However, if we can re- rent the property for the cancelled period, or a portion thereof, we will refund any amounts recovered from the new rental, less the 10% and $50 fee. Prices subject to change without notice. Paid reservations with deposits confirm original price. If the hot tub is not functioning due to mechanical failure, we cannot give refunds or credits. We maintain our spa but sometimes things happen that cannot be avoided. We will try to repair the spa as soon as possible but this is very difficult on a weekend. A functioning hot tub is not a condition of the rental. We will do everything we can to insure you a great vacation.
