- Months with 28 days = $165 night X 21 nights (7 nights free) = $3465

- All major Credit / Debit Cards, Sorry no checks.
- 50% due at booking, balance due 90 days before arrival. Final payment will be billed to card on file on due date. Reservations made within 90 days prior to arrival, full payment due at booking. See cancellation policies below.
- One credit card only per payment. Please no splitting of charges between guests using more than one card. Suggestion - One guest pay first payment and other guest make final payment.
- We are a small operation so cancellations affect us greatly.
- Vacation homes operate differently from hotels. We have only 2 properties and when a guest cancels with short notice, it's very difficult to rent your time slot. We are not a big business and our chances of re-renting a weekend, week or a month grow exponentially lower as the date draws nearer.
- Many of our guests make reservations up to one year in advance, Particularly in the Peak Season we have to turn away many requests for reservations because our Casita hasbeen reserved. As a result our cancellation policy is written to discourage those who would make a reservation without being committed to honoring their commitment with us. There are two payments required of those who wish to make a reservation - 50% is due at booking and the 50% balance is due 90 days before arrival.
- Cause of Cancellation: Please note that our cancellation policy is not dependent on the cause of the cancellation. We are unable to be responsible for elements such as bad weather; flight delays or cancellations; illnesses or injuries; family, pet, or work emergencies; or even the most unfortunate of unexpected events, a death. Please be aware that you have the option of purchasing "trip insurance" that would protect you from the costs that could be incurred due to an unforeseen cancellation. There are many suppliers of trip insurance and they are easily found on the Internet or often times, through your credit card provider.
- We encourage you to purchase Travel Insurance. It's a small price to pay if an emergency were to occur, you have additional recourse for canceling your stay and potentially obtaining a refund. Travel insurance is usually reasonably priced (as low as 2 to 5% of the trip cost) and would be entirely up to you to research and purchase. More trip insurance info below.
- We are not responsible for the weather, flight delays, acts of nature or mistakes you may have made with your reserved dates/itinerary or flight schedules during your trip. Thank you for understanding!
