We do not require you to check-in to our office on the day of your arrival. All of our homes are keyless. The week of your arrival you will get a series of email from us with important information for your trip. 3 Days before your check-in date, you will get your door access code. It is very important that you do NOT unsubscribe from our emails so that you can get all the information you need for your stay. You can find the property address and recommended activities on our website.
What is the check-in time and can I check-in early?
Check-in is at 4:00pm. During our prime winter, summer, and holidays we do not offer an early check-in. On the day of your check-in you may get a text message from us letting you know that your property is ready for check-in. If you do arrive early, consider visiting a local attraction or grabbing a bite to eat.
What is the check-out time and can I check-out late?
For the majority of our homes, the check-out time is 11:00am. At our Long Beach homes, our check-out time is 10:00am. The day of your departure you will be emailed a departure checklist. This can also be found as a laminated sheet in the home. During our prime winter, summer, and any holidays we do not offer late check-outs. Please email us if you would like to request a late check-out and we can see if we can make special arrangement.
Will my Damage Protection Fee be refunded to me?
No, the damage protection fee is non-refundable and the cost ranges from $45 to $125 per booking. This fee protects you for up to $1,000 in coverage against accidental damage to your home. However, this damage must be reported to Vacation Rental 365 as soon as it occurs and prior to your departure to be eligible. Special circumstances may require guests to have a traditional refundable security deposit. This deposit is refundable to guests within 14 days of check-out, as long as the property is left in good condition and there are no charges for excessive housekeeping, damage, or maintenance related issues.
What is the cancellation policy?
Once we receive formal notice via email greater than 120 days from the date of your arrival, you will be refunded 100% of your deposit minus a $150 processing fee. Any reservation cancelled within 120 days of your arrival will get 1 year from the original date of check-in to rebook the same property during an off-season month (Between March-May and October-November excluding all holidays). There will be a 20% rebooking fee applied to the new reservation. If a guest cancels within one week of their check-in the guest agrees to forfeit 100% of all deposited funds. There will be no refunds given due to weather conditions, late arrivals, early departures, or any other reasons outside of the control of Vacation Rental 365.
