Common Questions about Vacation Rental Homes

What time is check-in/out?
Check-in: 3:00 p.m. / Check-out: 11:00 a.m.
While we do our best to accommodate special requests, please be mindful of these times as we keep a full schedule of house keepers and inspectors to ensure our homes are in perfect condition for the next guests’ arrivals.

What kind of deposit is due on booking?
A 50% rental deposit is due upon making the reservation. The remaining balance is due one day prior to arrival. Any damage to home, carpet, damage done by pets, or breach of the rental agreement can result in extra charges. If you paid for your reservation with a credit card, we will hold your credit card number as a deposit.

What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations within 30 days of arrival will receive 50% of deposit paid; for arrivals within two weeks, full deposit will be forfeited. 

How old do I have to be to rent your homes?
All guests 18+ must be documented on the reservation/lease, regardless of length of stay. The Owner/Agent must approve all occupants living in the premises for longer than 7 consecutive days. Subletting of a rental home is prohibited.

What is included with the home?
Each home is privately owned, so some amenities vary.  However, homes will have at a minimum kitchen cooking utensils, plates, and silverware, drip coffee makers, linens and towels are provided. Benebu provides a starter of hand and dishwasher soap, toilet paper, tissue, and garbage bags.
