MAKING A BOOKING. A lead guest must be aged 23 years or over and accept the terms and conditions of rental. Only persons named with the booking are permitted to stay in the house under Florida State Law. Any persons not shown on the booking form will be asked to leave by our agents. Florida State Law prohibits subletting, sharing or assigning. A booking is confirmed once a full deposit has been received and confirmed in writing to the lead guest.

CONFIRMATION. At the time of confirmation, an account will be issued showing the balance due. This is payable 8 weeks prior (10 weeks for snowbird bookings) to the date of arrival. Bookings made within 8 weeks of arrival are payable in full at the time of booking. Full details on our house will be sent out after full payment is received.

LATE PAYMENT. The owners reserve the right to cancel the booking if payment is not received by the due date.

CANCELLATION CHARGES. The client may cancel the booking at any time after it has been confirmed. Cancellation must be made in writing. If final payment is not received the owner will endeavour to contact the lead guest. If no communication or payment is made the right is reserved to cancel the booking and recover the owing balance. The following cancellation charges will apply:

More than 8 weeks before arrival date Deposit forfeited
Less than 8 weeks before arrival date 100% of total cost forfeited

In the unlikely event that personal circumstances necessitate the owner cancelling the booking, any monies will be refunded and paid to the party (without interest, compensation or consequential loss of any kind). However, the management company will always seek to relocate your booking to a home of a similar or superior standard.

AMENDMENTS. Alterations to confirmed bookings may be permitted upon client request and at the owners discretion – an administration fee of £10/US$15 will be charged. Changes need to be notified in writing, together with the relevant fee.

DEPOSIT/SECURITY DEPOSIT. A deposit of £250/US$300 per week is required with the booking. Confirmation will normally be made within 24 hours of receipt of deposit. Once the booking is confirmed, the deposit will be non-refundable but will be deducted from the full rental amount due. An additional refundable security deposit of £200/US$300 will be collected together with the final balance to cover any breakages, damage, excess cleaning charges, excess garbage collection charges, excessive utility charges and/or any incurred costs/fines caused by misuse of property and/or failure to comply with homeowner association rules. In addition, you may be held responsible for any damage or loss sustained during your period of reservation in excess of this sum. Loss of door keys incurs a US$200 fee.

ARRIVAL/DEPARTURE. The rental commences at 4.00pm on the agreed day of your arrival and ceases at 10.00am on the day of departure. The property will be cleaned before your arrival and again on your departure. Failure to vacate may render you liable to incur additional rental charges.
