Terms & Conditions

ARRIVAL/DEPARTURE – Check-in time is after 3 PM CST. Check-out time is before 10 AM CST.
We will try to accommodate exceptions to these times based on the property’s rental schedule.
NO early check-in or late check-out is permitted unless confirmed by Rich Coast Vacations in
writing via email. Arrivals after 6:00 PM CST are subject to a $20 late check-in fee and collected
upon arrival. Check-ins after 11 PM are NOT allowed.

SMOKING – All of our rental properties are non-smoking, except in designated outdoor spaces.
Any smoking inside the property will void the contract, and the client will be asked to leave.
Cleaning of the home and furnishing to remove the odor will be charged to the rental client as
outlined below in “DAMAGE DEPOSIT”.

PETS – Pets are not permitted in any rental property without written authorization by Rich Coast
Vacations. Clients will be asked to leave and will forfeit their deposit if an unauthorized pet is
discovered in the rental unit.

DAMAGE DEPOSIT – A damage deposit of $500-$1,000 (depending on the property) is due one
(1) day before arrival and is automatically released seven (7) days after departure. We will
notify the client of any damage or missing items before charging. No client will be charged for
everyday wear and tear. If the property is left extremely dirty, an additional cost of $75 will be
withheld from the Damage Deposit. To avoid being charged:

  • Do not smoke inside the rental property
  • Do not bring unauthorized pets inside the rental property
  • Ensure all keys and remotes are returned at check out
  • Ensure any charges accrued during the stay are paid before departure

PAYMENT – An advance payment equal to 50% of the “Total Price” is required to secure the
reservation. The advance payment is not a damage deposit. The remaining balance is due 60
days before the contractual arrival date. Payments can be made in the form of credit

CANCELLATIONS – We recommend purchasing trip cancellation insurance as all paid
prepayments are non-refundable. If you need to cancel your rental more than 60 days before
your arrival, we are happy to offer a credit to stay at the same property within one year of the
original check-in date. This credit is subject to the availability of this same property and
applicable for dates with the same nightly rental rate or less.

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY- The maximum number of guests for the property is limited to the
designated number on the contract. If the number of overnight guests exceeds the agreed-
upon number in this signed contract, then Rich Coast Vacations can ask the client to vacate the
property, and the client will forfeit his/her rental fee. For rentals of two weeks or longer,
overnight guests may be allowed with prior approval. These guests may incur a charge of
$50.00 per person per night. Please check with Rich Coast Vacations to verify.

KEYS – If you lock yourself out of the property, we are happy to come to your rescue. However,
there will be a $25 charge or $40 after office hours. These fees apply to both doors and safes.
LINENS – No bath towels or linens are to be taken outside of the house except beach towels.
FALSIFIED RESERVATIONS – Any reservation obtained under false pretense will be subject to
forfeiture of advance payment, deposit, and/or rental monies, and the party will not be
permitted to check-in.

OCCUPATION OF PROPERTY – Occupation of the property is reserved to those named in the
contract. Shared reservations are not permitted.

EXCEPTIONS – Any exceptions to the policies mentioned above must be approved in writing in
