What are the benefits of renting a vacation home rental?
Our vacation homes are equipped in such a way that you always feel like you are coming "home" rather than returning to a foreign space like hotels or multi-unit condo resorts. Our private homes are fully furnished and equipped where it matters the most…like the bathrooms, kitchens, balconies and outdoor pool and grilling areas. Some of our homes even have game rooms, theater rooms, elevators, and hot tubs. With our variety of rentals, we have something that will meet everyone’s expectations in your travel group.
How often are your rentals professionally cleaned and sanitized? What are your standards of clean?
We are asked this question a lot, and rightfully so. All our cleaning crews are fully licensed and professionally trained to meet current CDC guidelines when sanitizing each of our rentals between each guest occupancy. Along with basic cleaning areas such as showers/tubs and floors – we also make sure to spend extra time disinfecting the smaller, more common “high touch areas” such as countertops light switches, door handles and faucets. Additionally, all our towels and bedding are washed in water that's at least 60°C/140°F. We also offer a step-up from regular linen service with our exclusive “Never-Been-Slept-In” linen package. When you add this to your reservation, we will make sure every mattress in your rental home has a brand-new set of sheets and pillowcases - right out of the package and freshly washed! Give us a call for more details.
What is your Covid-19/refund policy?
Our cancellation and refund policy does not provide any form of a refund for cancelled reservations. If a reservation is cancelled it results in a complete forfeiture of all funds paid. However, we do allow guest to modify their reservation dates, property, or both so long as you are 60 or more days out from arrival. Any reservation changes you make are subject to rate change, availability, and reliant on your reservation being within the 60 day or more prior to arrival date range. We do charge a $250 change fee per every change made to reservation unless multiple changes are made at the same time. If you choose to modify your reservation all funds you have already paid will be transferred and applied to your new reservation balance. We also offer guest travel insurance through Generali Travel Insurance. This will provide the possibility of being fully refunded. Generali offers a free 10-day look period, if for any reason within the first 10 days of purchasing you decide it is not right for you, we will cancel the policy and provide you with a 100% refund of the policy. (Please note that an NY or HI residents are not eligible for insurance directly through Holiday Beach Rentals, you would need to contact them direct).
What is the non-refundable damage waiver fee?
Everyday life can be filled with stressful situations and when you go on vacation, you should be able to relax and enjoy your getaway. Our Damage Waiver Fee is designed to make your relaxation and comfort unspoiled. Instead of putting down a large up-front security deposit, this small fee offers protection for those little incidents. No more credit card holds or canceled check fees to worry about. No need to trouble over accidental damage in your rental. If something breaks, simply let us know immediately and your waiver kicks in to repair or replace the item. Most importantly, you are provided with the confidence to enjoy your vacation without worry. The non-refundable Damage Waiver Fee is included in the total cost of all reservations.
