Rental Policies and Procedures
Check-in Procedure: Check in time is after 4pm on the day of arrival. There may be times when access to your unit is unavoidably delayed due to cleaning or maintenance issues. There will be no discounts offered due to a late check-in, however management will strive to limit the amount of time between guest arrival and access to the reserved unit.
Check-Out Procedure: Check out time is 11am on the day of departure. Unauthorized late check-out will result in the guest having a balance due equal to ½ of one day’s rental fees. By signing the reservation confirmation, the guest is authorizing management to charge this additional fee to the major credit card on file.
Advance Rent Payment: An advance rent payment will be required to confirm your reservation. Seascape must receive this payment at time of booking by major credit card; however guest’s who request the ability to send a check or money order will have 10 days to remit payment before the reservation is cancelled. The amount due will be equal to 25% of the total reservation or $150; whichever is greater. The full amount of this advance rent payment will be credited towards your total bill at the time of check-in. Reservations made under false pretenses of any kind will result in the forfeiture of all rental payments and eviction.
Reservation & Administration Fee: A non-refundable Reservation & Administration fee will be added to each reservation. This fee will vary according to the property reserved by the guest but will be a minimum of $10.
Damage Waiver Fee: A Damage Waiver Fee in the amount of $55 will be collected on each reservation. This is a non-refundable fee that will cover each guest for up to $1000 worth of accidental damage. Intentional damage of any amount is not covered under this policy and will be dealt with through conventional means of charging the guest credit card for the amount of the damages at replacement cost.
Cancellation: A $75 cancellation fee will be charged on all cancelled reservations. Your advance rent payment will be refunded less your cancellation fee and reservation fee according to the following schedule:

Bookings made less than 30 days in advance: Subject to refund less noted fees if guest notifies Seascape 7 days prior to scheduled date of arrival.
In the case of non-refund of advance rent payment due to the guest failing to notify management according to the schedule as stated above; management will make every effort to rebook the unit reserved for the guest and the advance rent payment will be refunded at the time less the cancellation and reservation fee.

Pets are strictly forbidden in non “Pet Friendly” units. Having a pet in a property that does not allow pets is grounds for immediate eviction without a refund of any payments made by the guest.
