Guest may cancel his or her hold without penalty until Jan 25 2019. The $500 deposit will be refunded for cancelled holds.
Pets are prohibited in all properties unless specifically designated in writing as “pet-friendly.” If pets are present in a property not designated as “pet-friendly,” Agent reserves the right to terminate this agreement, charge a fee of $1000.00, and require Guest to vacate premises immediately without refund, compensation, or alternate accommodations. A non-refundable, $100.00 per pet fee is charged to reservations in properties designated in writing as “pet-friendly.”

Rather than requiring a large, refundable security deposit, Vacation Rental Damage Protection safeguards Guest from unintentional and accidental damages to the rental unit interior which may occur. If purchased, this $69 plan covers up to $3000.00 to repair or replace damage to real or personal property during occupancy of the property as a result of inadvertent acts or omissions. Cost of accidental damages exceeding the benefit limit will be charged to the Guest’s credit card. Certain terms and conditions apply. Full details of the Vacation Rental Damage Protection coverage are contained in the Certificate of Insurance or Insurance Policy. The Vacation Rental Damage Protection can be purchased up to, and including at, check-in. By submitting payment for this plan, Guest authorizes and requests RedSky Travel Insurance to pay Dunes Properties, Agent, directly any amount payable under the terms and conditions. Guest may elect to substitute a refundable security deposit of $3000.00 payable by check and due 30 days prior to check in place of the $69 Vacation Rental Damage Protection. Refundable security deposits will be processed within 60 days of Guest’s departure. Description of Coverage
