A reservation fee of $500 is required at the time of booking to hold the dates.  We must receive your deposit within 60 days of your reservation or the time period cannot be held.  Once this fee is received, your booking is confirmed. Deposit is then held as a security deposit & returned within 14 days after checkout pending no damage is done to the property or any property is found missing. Property inspection and inventory is done 24-72 hours after every check out. Therefore there is a possibility that the deposit may be returned earlier than 14 days. However, a 14 day estimate is given to account for certain cases in which damage was done, or property was loss to provide adequate time to process an incident report. An itemized invoice will be provided for any items damaged or missing along with a refund of the deposit lt plus/less repairs or replacement costs.
