Vacation/Seasonal Rentals – Nonrefundable once signed! Bookings for our seasonal rental properties are non-refundable once a rental agreement is signed and deposit paid. In the event that you need to cancel a seasonal rental, please let us know as soon as possible. We will then open up availability for the property and attempt to rebook it to someone else. If we are able to rebook it, we will then offer you a refund of the rent and applicable tax paid, up to the amount we are able to recover from the new booking. If we are not able to rebook it, you will be responsible for the full balance of your rental costs as outlined on your rental agreement, whether or not you have paid that amount in full prior to the cancellation.
Security Deposit amounts vary based on the property and will be included in your price quote when booking. Security Deposits are held in escrow in a separate non-interest-bearing account at Iberia Bank 9132 Strada Pl, Unit 11105, Naples, FL 34108. The Deposit is refunded timely. If damage is discovered, or extra cleaning is needed, you will be notified after departure. Otherwise, you can expect to receive a full refund.
Please note that a Damage Waiver Fee of $125.00 will be charged. This Fee is non-refundable. Damage Protection insurance policies will no longer be sold by our firm.
Charges for laundry and extra cleaning will not be covered by the Damage Waiver Fee, nor will replacement of lost keys, fobs and remotes. These items will be charged against the guest’s credit card — required to be placed on file at the time of lease agreement execution.
All homes will be professionally cleaned prior to your arrival. Daily service is not provided but we can request that service from an outside vendor for an additional cost. You are responsible for basic cleaning (e.g. broom swept floors and vacuumed carpets, all counter tops wiped down, refrigerator emptied), leaving the property in the same similar condition as when you arrived. Additional charges will apply for any cleaning over and beyond the basic cleaning.
COVID-19 ENHANCED CLEANING SERVICES
Our 5-Step Cleaning Process:
Prepare, Clean, Sanitize, Check, and Reset.
Step 1: Prepare
- Ventilate the space before and during cleaning, when possible
- Use disinfectants approved by your local regulatory agencies for use against COVID-19
- Always read the directions and warnings on your cleaning products carefully
- Wash or disinfect your hands, and wear a mask and gloves while cleaning
Step 2: Clean
- Sweep, vacuum, dust, and/or mop areas before sanitizing
- Wash all dishes and laundry at the highest heat setting possible
- Wipe down hard surfaces with soap and water
Step 3: Sanitize
Sanitizing is when you use chemicals to reduce the number of bacteria on surfaces such as doorknobs and TV remotes.
- Spray high-touch surfaces in each room with an approved disinfectant spray
- Let the disinfectant stand for the length of time specified on the product label
- Allow the surface to air-dry
Step 4: Check
- Refer to the best practices in each room-by-room checklist to make sure that all areas are cleaned and sanitized between each stay
Step 5: Reset
To help prevent cross-contamination, it’s important to finish cleaning and sanitizing a room before replacing items for the next guest. Make sure to:
- Wash your hands and replace gloves before replacing guest supplies, linens, and cleaning kits
- Safely dispose of or wash cleaning supplies and protective gear
- Don’t re-enter a room once it’s been sanitized
- Empty and/or clean your equipment (ex: vacuum, microfiber cloths) between each turnover
