What else do you need to know?
What time is check-in/check-out? Can I check-in early? Can I get a late check-out?
Check in time is 4:00 p.m., check out time is 9:00 a.m. (EST). Currently, we are not able to accommodate requests for early check in or late check out. In response to COVID concerns, we are utilizing all time available to do our part to help our guests stay safe with additional cleaning and disinfecting procedures, including all frequently touched surfaces (light switches, doorknobs, cabinet handles, remotes, etc.) prior to check in. Our cleaning and maintenance crews will be on-site at 9:00 a.m. of the designated check out date to start preparing for the arrival of our next guest.
How do I access the home when I arrive?
Our vacation homes are equipped with keyless entry locks. You will be provided with a digital code that will allow you to access the home directly upon your arrival. The same code will be active throughout your stay permitting you and your guests to come and go from the property with ease and no keys!
Some guests prefer a quick meet and walk through the home, while others prefer to access the home and settle in directly on their own; we are happy to accommodate both, just let us know your personal preference.
