The owners provide regular and precautionary treatment for pest control and animal control. Although we clean, sanitize and treat the property on a regular basis, no amount of prevention can 100% eliminate the possibility of an encounter. Guests agree to hold the owners harmless for encountering any pests or critters whether outside or inside the property. The owners will make every effort to address pest control concerns reported during stay, but is not responsible for refunds due to the presence of pests or in the event of untimely service by pest control companies.

We recommend Travel Insurance.

We do not refund rents or deposits lost due to cancelled or shortened stays because of weather. We do not allow cancellations, refunds, or rescheduling due to an impending storm or hurricane, hurricane watch or warning, voluntary evacuation or mandatory evacuation. We do not allow cancellations, refunds, or rescheduling due to cancelled flights, closed travel routes, or travel delays and interruptions. Early departures due to inclement weather do not warrant refund of rent or deposit. We strongly suggest purchasing travel insurance for stays during the hurricane season (June - November).

A material breach of this agreement by guests which in the sole determination of the owner or its representatives that results in damage of the premises, personal injury to others, a breach of peace or violation of criminal of law or local code should be grounds of termination of the guest’s tenancy.
