For rentals of one week or less, a $500 deposit is required to reserve the house. For rentals of 2 weeks or more, an additional $500 is required. The deposit will apply to the rent when it is paid. The cleaning fee is $270, and there is a $50 processing fee per week. Taxes of 10.5% are additional to the rental rate and all fees. The balance of rent, cleaning fee, and taxes are due 8 weeks in advance of your arrival date.
Holiday up charges are $500 for WaterColors and apply to the following weeks: Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.
We have three night minimums between mid September and early March, except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, which are weekly minimums. There is a 4 night minimum for Fl-Ga weekend.
Between March and Labor Day, we rent only by the week, Saturday-Saturday.
We ask that you wash at least one load of sheets and/or towels in each washer. If you have time, please put the washed linens into the dryer and start them. Please also put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher and start it. Leave all kitchen items, including pots and pans, clean. Put all furniture (including the crib) back where you found it. These small chores will help the cleaners ready the house for the next renters, just as they have helped you be able to check in on time or earlier.
We cannot offer refunds once the house is booked unless it becomes uninhabitable, or unless we are able to re-rent for the same time period and price, or unless the cancellation more than 60 days from the arrival date. We encourage all renters to obtain trip cancellation insurance, and you can see various companies on our web site. We charge a 10% administrative fee for all renter-incurred cancellations.
