Vacation Rental Terms

Although each resort has a different cleaning schedule, the typical maid service is once prior to your arrival, after your departure, and one midweek cleaning. Some resorts will also offer trash / linen service daily. Additional full cleaning or maid service is generally available at a nominal cost.

We provide extreme value-priced vacation weeks, and as such have a rigid cancellation policy outlined fully in the Vacation Rental Agreement.

All vacation condo and villa rentals are governed by a Vacation Rental Agreement, which supersedes and nullifies any other agreements or representations, actual or implied. You can review the full terms and conditions contained in the available sample Vacation Rental Agreement, below.

Prices listed represent our average weekly rental rates, inclusive of taxes. We provide you an average daily and daily “Compare To Rate” which subtracts out the included taxes (averaging 18%) so you can accurately compare to hotel or resort rates. Please note that units and rates are at all times subject to availability at the resorts. Lastly, if you are new to condo vacation rental, make sure to read our “Condo vs Hotel Room Comparison” page to get a better picture of the many values renting a condo provides over a simple hotel room or suite.
