Deposit & cancelation policy

The payment and cancelation policy is the same as I have on Vrbo.  The refundable deposit upon booking is 50% of the total.  If your stay is beyond a year and you prefer to have a smaller deposit, contact me.  There is a 100% refund for cancelations until 30 days prior to your stay.  There is no reason needed.

At 60 days prior to your stay, the balance of 50% is due.  I’ll invoice you.  If I’m late, don’t worry.  Your booking is secure.
