Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay that are made within 30 days of arrival, forfeit the full advance payment & deposit unless the condo is rebooked for the reservation dates. If the condo is rebooked, you will be given a refund for the dates that do rebook, minus a $100 administrative fee. Early departure does not warrant any refund of rent or deposit.

Rental Agreement, Policies & Payment Authorization

The guest understands and agrees to all of the following:

    – A $200 down payment is required on all bookings to reserve the property. This down payment applies toward the reservation total. The reservation balance is due no later than thirty days prior to the first day of rental. If payment in full is not received on time, the reservation is subject to our cancellation policy. If reservation date is less than 30 days of arrival, payment in full is due at the time of booking.
    A $200 security deposit is required for all rentals and will be charged to your card on file 2 days prior to arrival and refunded 10-12 days after departure. Any lost keys, pool bands, extensive cleaning or damage to the property during your stay, which is not covered by the terms of the damage waiver, will be charged to the deposit.
    – A photo id must be presented within 48 hours of booking for identification purposes. If a photo id is not received within 48 hours, your reservation will be cancelled and you will be held to our cancellation policy rules. Once we receive your photo id, you will be emailed a confirmation of your reservation. Please verify that all of the information on your confirmation is correct.
    – Accepted forms of payment are Visa, Mastercard, Discover, E-checks. If you would like to pay your balance by personal check, please mail to Ocean Breeze Beach Vacations, 119 Pinnacle Place, Suite A, Little River, SC 29566. The check must be received no later than 30 days prior to arrival. Please call our office and inform us if you plan on mailing a check, so that your credit card on file will not be charged for the balance. There will be a charge of $50 to your account for any returned/NSF checks.
    – Changes to your reservation can be made 31+ days prior to the arrival date. No changes are allowed within 30 days of arrival. Each change will require a change form to be filled out and incur a $50 reservation change fee (with the exception of adding additional days).
    – Cancellations made 30 days or more prior to arrival, will be refunded 50% of the down payment.
    – Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay that are made within 30 days of arrival, forfeit all monies paid, unless the property can be rebooked at the same rental dates and rate. If the property is rebooked for the reservation dates (partially or fully), a refund will be issued for the rental rate that we were able to rebook the property for at the last minute, minus $100 cancel fee. Early departure does not warrant any refund of rent or deposit.
    – In the event of a Hurricane, refunds will only be given if there is a “MANDATORY” evacuation order given for the area that the rental property is located in. At that time, refunds will be given on any unused portion of rent from the date the evacuation order starts to the date the evacuation order is lifted. No refunds will be given outside of the evacuation order dates. Travel insurance is offered by several online companies, if you think that you might have to cancel for various reasons.
    – Guest certifies that he or she is at least 25 years of age and will provide proof of age. We do not rent to anyone under the age of 25, photo id is required upon booking. We do not rent to non family groups unless everyone in the group is 25 or older. If a renter is found to be in violation of this rule, the rental agreement will be immediately terminated and the renter will be cancelled or evicted with no refund. This age restriction is clearly noted on all ads prior to booking a reservation. RESERVATIONS MADE BY PERSONS NOT MEETING THE MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT, WILL BE HELD TO OUR CANCELLATION POLICY RULES AND MAY FORFEIT ALL MONIES PAID TOWARD THE RESERVATION IF THE PROPERTY CANNOT BE RERENTED.

    – ALL OF OUR PROPERTIES ARE NON-SMOKING AND NON-PET FRIENDLY. If you are found to be in violation of these rules, renter will be evicted with no refund. In addition, because this violation is deemed by Manager to be intentional, as in smoking in a “non-smoking” property or having a pet in a “no pets allowed” property or just caused by negligence, reimbursement will not be covered by the Damage Waiver Plan and a $200 charge will be deducted from the Tenant’s credit card to cover the deep cleaning of the property.
    – Please disclose if you require a service animal, as some resorts require that the service animal be registered with the resort prior to arrival.

All efforts will be made to have your vacation rental cleaned and ready by your arrival time, but this is not guaranteed. While delayed check-ins are uncommon, occasionally extra time may be required due to any unforeseen circumstances and to ensure the property meets our housekeeping standards.

    – If you have rented a property that uses a hard key for entry and you lose the key, you will be billed by a locksmith for having to rekey the lock.
