For cancellations received 30 days or less prior to your arrival date, your full deposit will be non refundable. Unfortunately there are no exceptions to this policy. See below for Vacation Rental Insurance.

Should you reserve for a certain number of days and leave before your reserved departure date, you will be charged one night or 50% of remaining balance, whichever is greater. Unfortunately there are no exceptions to this policy. It is the individual responsibility of each guest to look after vacation rental insurance to protect themselves against unforeseen circumstances.

To protect you against unforeseen circumstances we highly recommend vacation rental cancellation insurance. No one plans for unforeseen circumstances so this is the best way to ensure peace of mind when the unexpected happens.
