Rental Policies & Procedures
IF YOU MUST CANCEL | Reservations cancelled 30-60 days prior to arrival will forfeit 100% of the deposit. Cancellations made within 30 days of arrival will forfeit 50% of the reservation cost. Cancellations made within 14 days of arrival will forfeit the full reservation cost. This loss can be avoided if CSA Travel Protection Insurance was purchased and the reason for cancellation is covered under your policy. If you should have to cancel your reservation, please notify us immediately, and if you purchased Travel Insurance contact CSA to begin your claim.
IF YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR RESERVATION | Changes made more than 30 days prior to arrival will not be penalized. Any changes made within 30 days of arrival that result in a shortened stay, change of dates, or change of location may result in loss of the deposit. If not made within the appropriate time frame, cancellations or early departures for any reason (including weather) will not warrant any refund of rental cost. Destiny Beach Properties reserves the right to make exceptions if seen applicable.
MONTHLY RESERVATIONS OR CANCELLATIONS | 1-month rentals or longer will be given priority during the Winter season. Monthly renters must cancel 120 days or more prior to arrival to be eligible for a refund of the deposit. Any change that results in a shortened stay must be made at least 90 days prior to arrival. Failure to comply with either of the aforementioned rules may result in the loss of the reservation deposit.
