Common Questions about Vacation Rental Homes
Are there any additional fees?
All rental stays under 31 days are subject to a transient occupancy tax, TOT, (11.05% of the total rent and cleaning fee as of January 01, 2013).
Occupants have the option of paying their balance by check, cash, or credit card. Credit Cards are accepted and may be used for any balances owed. Credit/Debit Cards incur an additional 2.75% PSG service charge. Occupant acknowledges that if they choose to use a credit /debit card for any of the balances due, up to an additional 2.75% service charge will be added to that charge and paid for via deduction from their security deposit. Guests paying their balance in cash may opt to purchase a damage insurance policy at a cost of $45 in lieu of a security deposit. Security deposits are dependent upon the size of the unit and range from $300 - $600. Guests paying their balance by credit card must pay the security deposit amount for their selected rental.
