Val's Vacation Rentals - Policies & Procedures
Reservations are accepted up to one year in advance, reservation dates will be confirmed. However, the possibility of circumstances beyond our control makes the guarantee of rates and properties impossible. VVR reserves the right to change property assignments if circumstances beyond our control make your reserved property unavailable. VVR will attempt to reassign you to another property of comparable features and quality. However, since each home is privately owned we cannot guarantee such.
Guests are responsible for any damages that occur during occupancy. A refundable Security Deposit is collected with each reservation. If something breaks during your visit, please notify us. Any damage to the property, furniture, furnishings, excess trash or extra cleaning, or theft is the responsibility of the guest and occupants.
You will be responsible for paying charges and fines levied by a Homeowners Association based on infractions of Association Rules and Regulations during your stay, traffic fines, or other guest expenses incurred during your stay, and if there are any violations of the rental agreement.
To avoid any additional charges, please follow the check-out list provided at each home. All keys, Key Fobs and Pool Keys must be left in the home. Key replacement fee is $100 and will be charged to the Guest.
If the reservation is cancelled 90 days or more prior to arrival, your money will be refunded in full. If cancellation is 60 days or more prior to arrival, your money will be refunded less a $50 cancellation fee. If cancellation is within 59 days prior to arrival, the full rent and processing fees, less the cleaning fees and sales tax, will be forfeited.

You must register the number and names of guests occupying the property when completing the reservation documents. Children are included in the total occupancy. Undisclosed guests and/or excess guests are considered serious violations of your lease/reservation agreement and may result in a charge against your security deposit, and immediate termination of occupancy without refund.

If a service technician is called and find the equipment is in working order and the problem is due to guest oversight or neglect, the service call fee may be the responsibility of the guest. We cannot guarantee the condition of televisions, VCRs, stereos, appliances, or other equipment, or the condition of pools and hot tubs/spas in condominium complexes.
