Here are some helpful rules & policies that make things safe and secure for all. We ask that you kindly read and follow so everyone is clear in understanding of our policies. Thank you we look forward to having you!
Rates and Bookings
: Reservations are considered “Booked” once we receive your VRBO / AIRBB Contracts or Credit Card information. At that time you are agreeing to our Reservation Policies detailed below. Occupancy tax 9% is required to be collected on all properties, per the State of California in addition to a cleaning/security deposit.
Some properties require only an insurance policy, others require an additional cleaning / security deposit. The deposit must be received at the time of booking. The deposit is not applied toward rent, however it is fully refundable within 10 days of departure, provided no damage is done to property or its contents beyond normal wear and tear. Properties that require above average cleaning at the time of checkout will have an additional fee deducted from the security deposit.
Cancellation & Refunds
: Written notification is required for cancellation. If written notification is received more than 60 days prior to the arrival date, all payments received, minus a 10% cancellation fee, will be refunded. If cancellation occurs within 60 days of arrival, any refund is subject to the ability to re-book the property. If the property is not re-booked, no money will be refunded. If the property is re-booked, all payments, minus a $150 cancellation fee, will be refunded for the period of time the property is re-booked.
