RESERVATIONS: Our homes and villas are available for rental on a weekly basis in the summer and for a minimum of two nights during the off-season. During the summer, reservations run from Friday to Friday for most houses and Saturday to Saturday for most villas, unless otherwise noted. Many of our condos are available year round for less than seven days. All reservations require a 50% deposit of the total rental cost stated. The balance is due 30 days prior to arrival. If you are reserving a property within 30 days of the arrival date, the total reservation amount is due.

CHECK-IN:   AFTER 3:00 p.m. Our properties have electronic locks and your entry code will not activate until 3:00, please plan your travel accordingly.

CHECK-OUT:  BEFORE 10:00 a.m. If the property is not vacated by 10:00 AM and the housekeeping staff has arrived, a $100 Holdover Fee will be charged to the guest. Additional Holdover Fees will be charged every hour until the guest departs.

EARLY CHECK-IN:
Check-in is after 3:00 PM. Please do not plan an Early Check-In. While we do our best to accommodate requests for Early check-Ins, please be advised that an Early Check-In is at the discretion of our housekeeping department and is only possible if the rental property you are renting is prepared for arrival and approved in advance by our staff. A limited number of 12:00 pm Check-Ins are offered for those rental guests with special arrival needs and MUST be requested at least 7 days prior to arrival. The fee for this special option is $125, plus tax. Please keep in mind that an Early Check-In cannot be guaranteed due to situations that may arise (owner stays, maintenance, extra cleaning, etc.) that are beyond our control. While we will make every effort to honor your request, it may not always be possible and your Early Check-In fee will be refunded if an uncontrollable circumstance occurs.

LATE CHECK-OUT:
Check-Out is before 10:00 AM. Please do not plan on a Late Check-Out. No Late Check-Outs are permitted during June and July. During other times, a limited number of 12:00 Late Check-Outs are offered for rental guests with special departure needs and MUST be requested at least 7 days prior to arrival. The fee for this special option is $125, plus tax. Otherwise, a Holdover Fee will be assessed. If the property is not vacated and the cleaning crew has arrived, a $100 Holdover Fee will be assessed. Hourly Holdover Fees will continue to be assessed until the guest departs.

ADDITIONAL COSTS: Published rental rates do not include 10% state/local taxes or optional Travel Insurance.

ITEMS TO BRING: Some things you will need to bring are staple kitchen items: salt, pepper, etc., wraps, paper products, soap, laundry and dish detergent, and beach towels. A "starter supply" of soap, bath tissue, and dishwasher detergent is provided for your convenience.

LINEN SERVICE: All reservations include sheets, bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, dishtowels and bath mats. Your beds will be made and towels set out in the bedrooms. Crib sheets and beach towels are not supplied.

TRAVEL INSURANCE: We include Travel Insurance with every reservation. If you do not wish to accept the Travel Insurance, please initial the Rental Agreement where indicated. We want you to experience all the joy and excitement of your planned and much anticipated vacation to DeBordieu. However, we know that unexpected events: illness...medical emergencies...delayed flights...hurricanes and severe weather can occur when you least expect them. These unfortunate events may cause you to cancel or interrupt your trip, forcing you to lose your vacation investment and incur unexpected expenses. Remember, when you cancel the travel insurance, you are cancelling it for your entire group. Can you afford to lose the non-refundable cost of your trip if something unexpected happened? Your vacation investment is protected when you buy Travel Protection, which covers you for trip cancellation, delay, and interruption. We highly recommend that you purchase this protection to safeguard against the unexpected. For more information visit the provider's website: HERE. Coverage Questions? Call 866-889-7409.

MANDATORY EVACUATIONS: Late summer and fall is hurricane season. Having a storm threaten your vacation is a possibility. In the event government officials or the DeBordieu Colony General Manager order a mandatory evacuation of the area, due to natural disasters including but not limited to, hurricanes, floods, tornadoes or pandemic, guests must vacate the premises immediately. Unless Travel Insurance has been purchased, there will be no reimbursement for a mandatory evacuation.

FURNISHINGS/EQUIPMENT: Our rental homes have been decorated and equipped to satisfy the particular tastes and desires of the owners.
