Frequently Asked Questions
What happens after I reserve a vacation home on line?
You will receive an email confirming your reservation and a rental contract.
Please Sign and return the contract by fax, scan and email or snail mail.
How do we get the keys and instructions to the home?
When final payment has been received, we will email you driving directions and a guest guide specific to the home you are renting.
Ten days prior to your arrival date, we will snail mail you a key to your unit or email you instructions directing you to a lock box and the code. Many of our properties are now keyless, in which case a numeric code which will unlock the door during
your stay will be emailed to you .

If your arrival date is less than 60 days of the reservation date, the entire payment is required in full.
If you are booking more than 60 days in advance, you are charged one-half of the rental when you make the reservation, and the remaining balance is due 30 days from the arrival date.

We accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover.
Can I pay by check?
