Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Damage Waiver $50
  • Cleaning Fee $100
  • Tax Rate 6%

Notes:

The damage waiver is a non-refundable fee, which acts as a small insurance policy covering up to $500 in accidental damage. The cleaning $100 cleaning fee is for a full summer week. During an off season, two night minimum stay, the fee is $50. The damage waiver is non-refundable. 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!

We require 50% of the rent upon booking. The remaining balance is due within the two week window prior to arrival.
