Policies

We strive to ensure the comfort and privacy of our guests, and in doing so, we uphold our policies as a guideline for those staying with us. If you have a particular situation you would like to discuss, please email or call.

  • Must be 21 or older to book a reservation and at least one overnight guest must be over the age of 21.
  • Our check-in is at 3:00 p.m. Our check out is 11:00 a.m. We can arrange to hold your luggage if you arrive early or upon check-out until 8:00 p.m. that day.
  • We accept Visa, Master Card, or Paypal. Having made a reservation means you agree to our Terms and Conditions and authorize us to charge your credit card card in full at the time of booking your reservation to guarantee the dates. Your room will be reserved after we have your full name, billing address, mobile and home phone numbers, email address and valid credit card information. Your reservation is guaranteed by your payment and will be confirmed by email or text message.
  • We recommend that you reserve with us to receive the best rate, but you may use third-party agents such as Airbnb and VRBO. Should you need to cancel your reservation, you must go back through their booking website. Additionally, if you reserve through a third-party, and there is a problem with your reservation, you will need to contact them directly. 
  • We offer a convenient, user friendly Keyless Entry Security System which eliminates the need for keys and key cards. Our front and back door features a keyless digital security lock to make it easy for guests to come and go without the need for a key or a key card. To enter the house, just enter the four numbers of your private access code and the door will unlock. If you make an error several times, the red light flashes, wait a couple minutes until the red light stops flashing and try again. To lock the door, press the middle button and the door automatically locks. To help maintain the security of all our guests, please be sure the door is closed, locked and secured each time you leave and enter the house. The private Access Code should NOT be shared with anyone.
  • We strongly recommend purchasing trip insurance to best protect your travel investment and to cover unexpectedcircumstances that would prevent you from traveling last minute. 
    If you made your reservation via one of the following sites or their affiliates, Airbnb or VRBO, please contact them directly for a cancellation or change.
