Property description

Boasting both a large front yard and back yard, this really is a sweet little retreat. Two bedrooms/ two baths. Accommodates 8. Queen bed in master bedroom; Full bed plus one set of twin bunk beds in second bedroom; Queen sofa bed in living room. Wireless and high speed internet; TV/DVD; Washer/Dryer; Air Conditioning.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Cleaning Fee $100
  • Damage Waiver $45
  • Tax Rate 6%

Notes:

The damage waiver is a non-refundable fee. The cleaning fee is $100 for a summer week, but for shorter, off season stays of two night minimums, the fee is $50. During the busy summer months, if we have a cancellation, we can sometimes go to a three night minimum. HOWEVER, when this happens, we do not go by a weekly summer average rate, but by a nightly summer weekday and summer weekend rate. Please ask our office for details!
