Frequently Asked Questions

Our cancellation policy is below. We don't do any refunds unless the property re-books for that same time or if it's 60 days or more before the trip. The 60 day policy is below. If the property rebooks, you would get a refund less the cancellation fee ($350). The cancellation fee covers our credit card processing charges.

We recommend getting trip insurance. We partner with a great company called Rental Guardian and they offer a “cancel for any reason” policy or a “standard” policy. The standard policy can cover for illness, injury, death, job loss, hurricanes, and much more. We send out all the information about insurance after you book. You can add insurance up to 30 days before your trip. 
Special addition: 60 day policy. If you cancel 60 days or more before your stay, you will get a refund less the cancellation fee of $350. If you cancel 60 days or less before your trip there is no refund unless someone else rebooks the same dates. Then you will just pay the cancellation fee of $350. Let me know if you have further questions about that

Secluded Retreat
5/5 stars
Secluded location but close to everything you need for convenience. The perfect place to sit on the porch or by the river and watch the fish and wildlife. Exactly what we needed to relax and reset from the busy world. Beds are all super comfortable! We can’t wait to come back.

Great House
5/5 stars
This is a nice spacious house .. great views of ocean and nice area to walk on the shore line my only complaint is the beds .. it does sleep 8 but it’s two in each bed so you need to think of who is coming and ages of who can sleep together.. it would of been nice to have bunk beds in one of the rooms..

5/5 stars
My family and I had a great time at this property, it was beautiful and peaceful and very spacious. It was relaxing and had a very homey feeling. We had plenty of room for the kids to run in the yard and play. We loved it and will definitely be making a return visit. We fished and did some kayaking and did some swimming and the shops and restaurants and beaches are just a short drive away.
