RENTAL TERMS & CONDITIONS

 

Advance Payment Required Reservations

At the time of booking a credit card advance payment will be required equivalent to fifteen percent (15%) of the total due to include a non-refundable reservations fee (see “Reservations Fee” below). Optional travel insurance, which protects you from unexpected events such as hurricanes (see “Vacation Insurance Protection” below) is available for a fee of 6.5% of the reservation total, and if taken is also due at the time of booking. Reservations for condominiums made less than 30 days prior to arrival require payment in full immediately. All advance payments will be held in an interest bearing account with all interest going to the management company.

Reservation Fee

There will be a $39.00 reservation fee per unit booked. The reservation fee is automatically added to the reservation and will appear as a separate line item in the guest folio.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation before final payment (30 days prior to arrival) will result in a loss equal to 15% of the total amount due plus the non-refundable reservation fee and travel insurance if purchased. (NOTE: Guest covered under Red Sky rental vacation insurance are exempt from the 15% early-cancellation fee if the reason for cancellation is a covered reason under the travel insurance.) Cancellation after final payment will result in a 100% loss of the total cost of the stay. The 100% cancellation loss can be avoided if: (1) Red Sky rental vacation insurance was purchased; or (2) Brooks and Shorey Resorts can re-rent the unit for the full term of the original rental period, in which case the guest will be charged a 10% rebooking fee in addition to the reservations fee. Prior to arrival, if a guest has to shorten their stay or change their unit, normal cancellation penalties may apply, whether they are insured or not. Refunds issued by Brooks and Shorey Resorts will be issued no more than 30 days after departure date of original stay. Refunds are payable to the guest within 30 days after the subsequent re-rent payment has cleared our account.
