Security Deposit & Damage Waiver Option :
The vacation homes we represent are furnished and decorated with various items. Our staff thoroughly inspects each home and inventories its contents between each guest. You become financially responsible for any and all damage to the property and its contents from the date and time you check-in to the date and time you check-out.  As a condition of rental, guests are required to post either a Security Deposit or purchase the Limited Damage Waiver, as described below.


Limited Damage Waiver :
A non-refundable Limited Damage Waiver protects you from being charged for a portion of accidental loss or damage that may occur during your occupancy. The purchase of the damage waiver is already included in the price. The Limited Damage Waiver does not cover damage or loss that is not disclosed. To avoid erroneous blame, you are required to immediately notify our staff if anything is amiss when you check-in and arrive at the rental property. You must inform our staff if there have been any incidents of loss or damage that have occurred during your occupancy prior to, or immediately upon vacating the rental property.


The Limited Damage Waiver does not replace or negate your responsibility for all members of your party as a primary renter. It does not pay for any act of intentional or negligent destruction, pet damage, re-keying, additional cleaning if the property is left excessively dirty, or other invoices associated with your rental that may be presented subsequent to your occupancy.


The Limited Damage Waiver is offered, administered, and funded solely by Emerald Beach Property Management, Inc. 


Security Deposit :
A refundable security deposit may be required that will be retained until our staff has completed a check-out inventory and inspection procedure after you vacate the rental property. Should we find the home excessively dirty or that items are missing or damaged, the cost of additional cleaning hours and/or the cost of repair or replacement of the homeowner’s property will be deducted from your deposit. The remainder of your deposit that is not applied to these expenses will be refunded to you within 10 days. You remain responsible for, and will be charged for, the cost of any damage, repair, or replacement in excess of the Security Deposit, including any invoice associated with your occupancy that is subsequently presented.


Cancellation Policy :
Any monies that are collected are non-refundable. This includes the first $300 payment. We highly recommend purchasing the Trip Insurance to protect yourself from any unforeseen events that may cause you to cancel your reservation. Changes to the booking dates and/or rental property have to be made Thirty (30) days prior to arrival for Short Term reservations and Sixty (60) days prior to arrival for Monthly reservations. Once final balance is processed there are NO REFUNDS due to cancellation.


Full Payment Due :
Full payment of balance is due forty-five (45) days prior to the arrival date. The balance is automatically processed using the credit card on file. No action is required from the guest.

Check-in time is after 4:00 pm; Check-out time is 10:00 a.m. Due to our high standards for cleanliness, not all units will be ready for check in promptly at 4pm during peak season. We ask for your patience and suggest you have alternate plans available between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 pm incase the not is not yet ready.
