EARLY DEPARTURES

Once a guest’s scheduled check-in date has passed, their reservation is considered to have commenced and is no longer eligible for any type of refund for early departure. This includes when a guest fails to physically check-in and does not provide prior notice of cancellation which results in a forfeiture of the entire deposit.

Due to our location, we are occasionally subjected to inclement weather or Red Tide, which is out of our control. In the event that one of these occurs during your stay, our usual cancellation policy will apply to an early departure.

 
1-Bedroom and Efficiency unit rental fee includes 2 guests,
2-bedroom unit rental fee includes 4 guests, and a
3 bedroom rental fee includes 6 guests.   
 
There is a $20 extra per night per person (maximum 2 extra guests per unit).

Unfortunately, we must stipulate that no more than two (2) dogs may occupy a unit and there is a limit of 25 pounds maximum per dog. Upon check-in you must present a copy of your dog’s vaccination records from your Veterinarian indicating that all vaccinations are up to date. Your dog must be on–leash at all times when outside of your unit. Should we receive noise complaints regarding your dog, you may be asked to leave the resort and you will forfeit any amounts paid.
