If our housekeeping staff has to spend extra time cleaning your rental upon departure due to negligence, pet hair/damage, or any other reason, we have the authority to charge you an additional cleaning fee of up to $300. If you are staying longer than 30 days, we urge you to consider a monthly or bi-monthly clean at $95 a clean to ensure all remains manageable.

No grace period will apply. Final payment, consisting of the remaining balance, must be received by Coastal Accommodations at least thirty (30) days prior to guest arrival (or immediately if booked less than thirty (30) days in advance of guest arrival). Failure to make final payments on a timely basis will make reservation subject to automatic cancellation.

DAMAGE PROPERTY PROTECTION PROGRAM:
Guests are required to pay a $59 flat fee in the first portion of their payment to cover potential damages (not including pet damages) to and/or loss of items from the Property. This fee considers risk mitigation and protection for both Coastal Accommodations and the guest. We have partnered with an insurance company who provides $1,500 worth of damage protection for a $59 flat fee upon booking. It is extremely important the guest notifies us should there be any accidental damages prior to departure, otherwise all damage costs will be the responsibility of the leaseholder. We are given 15 days to file a claim and 45 days to actually fix it, but the quicker we know, the faster we can solve the issue! All of our properties are NON-SMOKING. If we find that there has been smoking in the property, an air quality fine of up to $1500 will be charged to the departing guest. Plus any other costs that may occur to clean the property from smoke damage.
Our townhomes are in close proximity to our neighbors. It’s important that all guests adhere to the city quiet hours: 10 PM – 8 AM.
