We highly recommend getting TRAVEL Insurance for your trip.

It is up to the Guest to purchase this coverage for their trip.

Coverage is available for health and weather related problems. Please call them direct or order online to purchase this in your name.

TRAVEL INSURANCE AND HURRICANES: WHAT’S COVERED?

Travel insurance through Travel Guard may cover a traveler’s vacation investment if severe weather conditions directly affect their travel arrangements or accom­mo­dations. For example, if a traveler is forced to cancel a trip due to a hurricane, travel insurance with trip cancellation can provide a reimbursement for nonrefundable expenses, up to the limit of coverage purchased.

If severe weather forces the evacuation of the traveler’s unit, the travel insurance may provide reimbursement for nonrefundable expenses, and additional travel expenses. For losses to be covered, travel insurance must be purchased before a hurricane is forecasted or predicted. Once a storm is named, losses resulting from a hurricane that has been forecasted or predicted on or before the effective date of coverage are excluded.

All claims will be evaluated on their own merits at the time of adjudication.

Travel Insurance is available on this site and we highly recommend you purchase it.

ABSOLUTELY NO PETS are permitted in rental units under any circumstances, NO EXCEPTIONS. If any evidence of a pet(s) is found in your unit or on the premises, you will be asked to vacate immediately with no refund of rent and the owner will automatically charge your credit card on file $500 for the cost of a deep cleaning of the entire home.
