Beach-N-Bay Getaways offers only premium vacation rentals and we strive to provide you, our guests, exceptionally clean and well-maintained accommodations so that you can enjoy a carefree vacation. Below you will find our rental policies that are designed to clearly state what you can expect from us and what we expect from you when you rent our homes. We will make every effort to take great care of you during your stay and we ask that you take great care of our properties in return. Please take a few moments to read over our policies.
NOTE: In placing a deposit to reserve any property with Beach-N-Bay Getaways Vacation Rentals, whether by phone or online, you agree to all of the terms, conditions and policies stated in our Terms and Conditions. On this page we provide an abbreviated, easy-to-read version of these. Each reservation confirmation also includes all of the terms, conditions, and policies.
Guest must meet minimum age requirements to reserve and/or check-in. All others staying in the home are invitees of guest who contracted with Beach-N- Bay Getaways. The contracted guest is fully responsible for the actions and behavior of his/her invitees.
Guest acknowledges and understands that he/she is a temporary guest of the property and not a tenant. This rental agreement is unique to the registered guest and may not be sublet or otherwise assigned to any other persons.
The maximum number of people permitted to stay overnight at the property is the number shown on your reservation confirmation. The maximum number of people allowed on the property at any one time will be provided to the guest as part of the check-in instructions (sent 14 days in advance of arrival date) but please contact us for this maximum number in advance if needed. The maximum occupancy provided for each home ensures that we stay within the legally allowed occupancy as stipulated by the city or county that the home is in.
Large gatherings are not allowed and this home shall not be used in combination with other vacation accommodations. This means that if the occupants have friends or family renting other homes or residing in the area, our homes are not to be used as the gathering place for the larger group. PLEASE ABIDE BY THIS RULE! If an excessive number of people are found at the property, it will be grounds for eviction with no reimbursement. This will be strictly enforced!
If a guest reservation is made more than 60 days in the future, Beach-N-Bay Getaways will collect 15% of the total invoice. Reservation deposits, partial or in full are NON-REFUNDABLE after the 48 hour grace period. The balance of your full payment is due 60 days prior to the arrival date of your rental period. By authorizing the rental deposit payment via credit card or Electronic Check (E-CHECK), the guest also authorizes Beach-N-Bay Getaways to charge to the credit card/electronic check on file the balance of the total charges on the balance due date unless other arrangements have been made prior to that date. When the balance payment is charged, a confirmation notice will be sent via email to confirm processing of your payment.
If a guest books a rental less than 60 days in advance of the stay, the full payment will be charged to your credit card/Electronic Check at time of booking.
FAILURE TO MAKE FINAL PAYMENT ON A TIMELY BASIS WILL RESULT IN THE AUTOMATIC CANCELLATION OF YOUR RESERVATION AND LOSS OF ANY DEPOSIT PAID PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT'S CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
We want to do everything possible to make your trip enjoyable and worry free so we strongly recommended that our guests purchase the Property Protection Plan. We offer this program for only $59. The program provides up to $1,900 in coverage for any unintentional damage to the home or condo that might occur during your stay. We know that no one ever intends to damage anything during their stay but accidents do happen!
If you decide not to purchase the Property Protection Plan, a $1,900 deposit will be required 14 days before your occupancy of the home. We are unable to accept credit cards for the damage deposit, the deposit can be made by direct debit to your checking account. If no damages are found to the home, your money will be returned within 14 days. Please review the full terms of the Property Protection Plan, click here. BNB Property Protection Plan
If the damages caused by your group are determined to be intentional or malicious or if the remedy of the damage exceeds $1,900.00 the additional amount will be charged to the credit card/checking account on file.
For items not covered by the Property Protection Plan, such as long distance phone calls billed to the house phone or excessive cleaning as identified by housekeeper after your departure (excessive trash disposal, excessive cleaning, upholstery or carpet cleaning required), Guest authorizes Beach-N-Bay Getaways to apply any cash security deposit to these charges and/or to charge Guest via credit card/E-Check or by written bill.
Please report any damage that you notice upon check-in via phone or email to avoid being charged for damage that you didn’t create.
Because the unforeseen and unexpected can occur before you leave or when you are away from home, we offer two levels of Travel Insurance through Nationwide: Play Travel Protection and Cancel for Any Reason. The standard Play Travel Protection insurance is offered at 7% of your reservation total and provides you with protection against certain cancelation conditions, including unique coverage reasons such as pets, school, and work. The Cancel for Any Reason** insurance is offered at 9.8% of your reservation total and covers 100% of standard coverage cancellation reasons and up to 60% of non-refundable costs for any reason you may need to cancel.
To find out more specific information about the Insurance Plans, please visit our Travel and Damage Insurance page. If you have purchased travel insurance along with your reservation and have to cancel, delay or change your reservation for a covered reason, please contact the provider directly. Reimbursement will be paid by Nationwide directly to you, not by Beach-N-Bay Getaways.
BEFORE FINAL PAYMENT IS DUE (61 days or more before arrival)
If the guest cancels his/her reservation 61 days or more from arrival, the reservation deposit is nonrefundable unless you have purchased cancellation insurance and your reason for cancellation is a covered event. All claims for refund under the terms of your insurance are to be between the guest and the insurer.
AFTER FINAL PAYMENT IS DUE (60 days or less before arrival)
If the guest cancels his/her reservation 60 days or less from arrival, all collected money is non-refundable except the Property Protection Plan fee and the cleaning fee charged. This policy also applies if a guest decides not to stay at a rental upon arrival. If your reservation is canceled 60 days or less from arrival and the full payment has not been made, the total deposit will be forfeited because the Property Protection Plan fee, security deposit and pre-paid cleaning fees are included in the final balance payment.
Upon cancellation of a reservation, we will make the home available immediately and attempt to re-rent it for some or all of the days the guest reserved. Beach-N-Bay may offer the canceled days to the public at a reduced rate. Refunds will be based only on the days rented and the actual amount collected as replacement rent on a per diem basis less a 20% service fee. If the owner chooses to make use of the home in the event of a cancellation there will be no refund other than that stated above. All refunds of rental amount paid if any, are subject to the 20% fee.
To protect against cancellations caused by certain unforeseen events, such as illness or transportation interruptions, we recommend that our guests purchase travel insurance to assure refund of non-refundable deposits paid. There are no refunds for early departures.
HOME BECOMES UNINHABITABLE
If the rental unit becomes unfit for habitation as determined by the owner and/or Beach-N-Bay Getaways, the guest’s payments are 100% refundable for any unused time at the home.
