After welcoming guests into our homes for over a year now we’ve noticed a handful of you have the same questions regarding the booking process. We thought it might be nice to combine all of your thoughts into one place. Below you’ll find some of the most common questions we encounter on a daily basis. These answers should help you understand how to book, what’s required, what we provide and what standards we’ve put in place thus far.
Vacation rental can be a bit intimidating but we aim to make things easy, transparent and most importantly, smooth.
So, question 1…

A: We prefer to rent to those 27 years of age and older.
Q: What is the cancellation policy?

Q: Can I bring my pet?
A: We’d rather not. These houses are brand new and allergy-free and we’d like to keep them as such.

A: During off-season, we prefer 2-3 night minimums. During the summer peak season, we require a weekly minimum.

A: We refund all security deposits within 5-7 business days of departure as long as there’s no damage.
