Terms & Conditions
All guests and occupants (“the Guests”) of the property (“the Property”) acknowledge, understand, and agree that the moment their credit card details are provided for the Initial Reservation Payment, and/or taking possession of the Property, they have accepted the Wieler Investments, LLC (dba Sunkissed & Salty Vacation Rental/S&SVR) Terms and Conditions (“The Terms and Conditions”), to include our Cancellation Policy, regardless of whether a signature is provided. S&SVR, in its sole and absolute discretion, may choose not to accept a reservation if it does not meet certain criteria such as, but not limited to, a minimum number of nights, not beginning or ending on a certain day during particular times of the year, and not meeting certain criteria for Holiday periods, or dogs not meeting the Property's parameters. These Terms and Conditions may be modified from time to time.
Reservations can be made online, by phone, or by email. The Guest authorizes S&SVR to charge the provided credit card for the Initial Reservation Payment. The Initial Reservation Payment is 25% of the Rental Fee and is due at the time of booking. This is a Payment towards the total cost of the reservation and NOT considered the Refundable Security Deposit. The remaining balance must be received no later than 60 days prior to the arrival date and can be made by credit card, check, e-check, and bank wire transfer (wire fees may apply). Reservations made within 60 days of arrival must be paid in full at time of booking by credit card. All prices are quoted in US Dollars. All reservations will include a Reservation Fee, Security Deposit Hold, and Cleaning Fee. All fees are subject to a 12% Sales and Resort Tax.
All cancellations must be received in writing. Please email your cancellation request to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your name, confirmation number, and dates of stay. The original PDF confirmation you received from VRBO and S&SVR Booking Site is also acceptable. A confirmation of the cancellation will be emailed once the cancellation has been processed. All cancellations are subject to a $100 cancellation fee.
Refunds are subject to S&SVR’s ability to re-rent the Property for the originally contracted Rental Fee. If the Property is re-rented, S&SVR will issue a refund in the amount for which it was re-rented, minus the $100 cancellation fee. If the Property is re-rented for a lesser amount, the Guests will be responsible for the difference in the value of the originally contracted Rental Fee and the re-rented Rental Fee. No refund will be given if S&SVR is unable to re-rent the Property. S&SVR does not make any sort of guarantee that it will be able to re-rent the Property, or re-rent it for the original contracted Rental Fee, but S&SVR will make every effort to do so. No refunds will be issued for non-arrival, late arrivals, early departure or alteration to the Reservation. S&SVR strongly recommends Trip Insurance to cover unforeseen circumstances.
TRAVEL PROTECTION INSURANCE:
We strongly recommend travel protection insurance. We suggest “Cancel For Any Reason” insurance coverage if you want complete flexibility and want to guarantee complete coverage in case of cancellation reasons not covered by standard travel insurance. S&SVR is not responsible and will not be held liable for coverage policy exclusions and/or coverage.
FORCE MAJEURE ACTS OF GOD/NATURE:
S&SVR will work diligently to ensure Guests stay is pleasant. However, S&SVR will not be held liable or issue refunds for circumstances beyond its control. This includes but is not limited to inclement weather, hurricanes, red tide, fire, pandemics, and any other acts of nature. S&SVR strongly encourages your purchase of Travel Protection Coverage.
In an effort to provide the best possible experience, Guests should notify S&SVR owners of any and all damages to the Property immediately upon arrival. Immediately reporting damages to S&SVR will help to prevent Guests from being charged for damages in error. Guests will be financially responsible for damages to the Property and its contents during their dates of occupancy, with obvious exclusions such as Acts of God/Nature and damages deemed as normal wear and tear. S&SVR requires an active credit card on file to be used in the event of Property or contents damage.
Guests are required to have a Refundable Security Deposit Hold on their card and Damage Insurance. Damages in excess of the Damage Insurance coverage limit will result in Security Deposit charges. The Guest who uses their credit card for the Initial Reservation Payment is considered the responsible party, and all necessary charges associated with their rental will be charged to their credit card on file for the Rental Property, regardless of “who” in the Guest’s party caused the damages.
TERMS OF SECURITY DEPOSIT: S&SVR places a $500 Security Deposit "hold" on the primary credit card 3 days prior to arrival. The Security Deposit hold will be retained by S&SVR for approximately (2) days after the date of departure. Guests are obligated to inform S&SVR of any and all damages prior to departure. In the event of unreported damages, Guests will be notified by email and provided with documentation detailing damages and associated costs. If repairs (reported or unreported) are needed, all or a portion of the Security Deposit will be forfeited to cover the cost of the repairs. Guests agree that S&SVR is authorized to charge the active credit card on file for any damage exceeding the $500 Security Deposit hold. Guest will also be notified by email that all or a portion of their Security Deposit will be forfeited for such occurrences as but not limited to; theft, damage caused by smoking, extensive cleaning required upon departure, linens that are damaged or missing, charges resulting from violation of any law, ordinance, or regulation, any fines or costs levied against Guests or visitor of Guests.
