A: 100% of our rental properties offer wireless access in the condos; however, we do not guarantee working internet access and do not offer refunds if it is not working. Many shops in the area offer free WIFI if the internet in the condo isn't working to your satisfaction.

What is expected of me in regards to the cleaning of the property after my stay?
A: Your property should be cleaned to your satisfaction when you arrive. Cleaning is included in your rental price.
Please remove your garbage, load and turn on the dishwasher, secure all doors and windows, and double check the safe for any personal items.    However, should the cleaning of the property exceed the hours expected, you will be charged $30 per hour from your credit card on file for any extra time it took to clean the property.  

What do we need to bring with us to our vacation property?
A: Whatever will make your vacation one of a lifetime! All of our properties are equipped with a full kitchen.

We provide basic amenities and there are some beach supplies in each condo.

What happens if we leave something behind after we leave?
A: If we find an item, we will keep it for 30 days after check-out. Please contact us as soon as possible if you think an item was left behind in a condo. After 30 days, if we are not contacted, we will donate the item. We do charge a fee to retrieve and keep any items. In addition to shipping and handling charges to return your items left behind, we charge $25 to look for and store lost items. Please make sure to triple check the rental property before you depart to make sure you leave nothing behind.

Is booking online secure?

What are the benefits of a vacation condo rental?
Our vacation condos are stocked in such a way that you always feel like you are coming "home" to your "vacation home" rather than returning to a small hotel room. Our homes have full kitchens, with some homes having game rooms, hot tubs and BBQ grills. You will be able to enjoy a full service home while you are on vacation rather than a small, cramped hotel room.
