Vacation Rental Property Protection Plan
On your rental agreement you will find a Vacation Rental Property Protection Plan fee listed in your booking charges. This fee is taken in lieu of a larger refundable security deposit, and is non-refundable. This fee offers you, our guest, as well as the owner of the home protection against accidental damages.

As an alternative to Property Protection, Guest may choose to pay a Refundable Damage Deposit, authorized and collected prior to Guest entering into Premises, that will act as a safeguard to Agent for any damages that may occur, whether unintentional or intentional. Any refund of Damage Deposit is subject to the terms of this Lease. No portion of the Damage Deposit will be refunded to a departing Guest until the Premises is vacated by all co-guests. Guest acknowledges that all, or a portion, of the Damage Deposit may be retained by Agent upon termination of the tenancy, and that any refund (full or partial) of the Damage Deposit to Guest shall be made within 14 days of reservation departure date.
*Our larger homes do require a security deposit and may be subject to different terms.
