Please carefully read over the following information to help clarify any questions you might have about our homes and how our reservations are handled.
Our regular check in time is at 4 pm, with check out at 10 or 11 am, (each home is different). Early arrivals or late departures can sometimes be arranged with pre-approval. All major holidays require a three night minimum stay and are at a higher rate.
2023 Peak Season
(June 1st - September 30th)
During Peak Season all homes require a five-seven night minimum stay during this time frame. Shorter stays (three night minimum), may sometimes be reserved if there still is availability within two weeks of your desired arrival date.
2022/2023 Off Season (Sept. 30th - May 31st)
2022/2023 Off Season
(Oct. 1st - May 31st)
During the Off Season we require a two night minimum stay, excluding major holidays, which require a three night minimum stay and are subject to peak season rates. For extended stays, (three week minimum), we can sometimes offer a discounted rate during the off season, only.
Making A Reservation
To finalize a reservation, all we need is your full mailing address, your home, work and cell phone numbers, plus the exact number of adults, children and pets that will be sleeping at the home. We do not accept all dogs, so please include the age, breed, weight and sex of your dog, for owner approval.
Once we have all of your information, we will email you a "Reservation Order Summary", which will give you the exact breakdown of your costs.
We will then email you a "Vacation Rental Contract" that you can electronically sign. All you have to do is click on the link in the email to the contract, then scroll down to the bottom of the contract and click on the "I Agree" button. It will then automatically be emailed back to us. We will then invoice you via PayPal, if paying by debit or credit card.
Once we have received your rental contract back and your payment in full has been received, we will email you your "Welcome Package" approximately 3 days before your arrival. It will contain the policies and procedures for the home, driving directions, with a link to the ferry schedule and check in instructions, which includes the access code to the lock box at the home, so you can retrieve your key and get checked in, at whatever time you arrive.
When making a reservation more than (60) days prior to your arrival, we require 50% be paid to secure the reservation, (of which $400.00 is a non-refundable cancellation fee) be received via mail within (72) hours after making the reservation or you can pay with a debit or credit card via PayPal immediately. Your final payment must be received (60) days prior to your arrival, which we prefer be made by personal check.
For reservations made within (60) days of your arrival, we require payment in full be paid by PayPal immediately. A refundable security/damage deposit is also required on all reservations, the amount is dependent on the length of your stay and normally runs between $500 to $1000 dollars.
Cancellations received more than (60) days prior to your scheduled arrival date, will cause forfeiture of the $400 non-refundable cancellation fee. There are no refunds on reservations cancelled within (60) days of your scheduled arrival date (except for the security/damage deposit, if one has been received). We will allow rescheduling of your stay (if possible), in order to not forfeit any monies paid, if you must cancel.
Should there be any damage found, re-arranging of furniture, missing items, or excessive garbage or cleaning required after your stay, the costs will be deducted from your security/damage deposit.
Dogs are accepted at most of the homes, with paying a $50 pet fee, for each pre-approved dog. Most homes only accept one mature small to medium size dog.
To ensure a standard of cleanliness in the homes, all reservations require a $125 - $350 cleaning/garbage fee be paid.
Washington State Sales Tax of 10.8% is additional.
No Smoking in any of the homes!
Please note that all online reservations must be reviewed & confirmed by the vacation rental manager before they can be finalized.
