Rental Terms for Retro Chic Beach House
By submitting this reservation, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions:
Age & Occupancy Restrictions
You must be at least 25 years old to rent a property. Anyone under that age of 25 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. At any time SkyRun may request, and the guest who reserved must provide, a valid ID as proof of age. The reservation holder must be on-site for the entire duration of the reservation. Maximum occupancy at any time is equal to the number of guests a property 'sleeps', as listed per property. Unless approved in advance, exceeding the occupancy at any time will result in an additional $500 minimum charge to your credit card and will result in the forfeiture of your stay without refund. SkyRun has the right to inspect the number of people in your party.
Your payment of 1/2 of the grand total (or a minimum of $300) was paid at the time of booking. The remainder of the balance was paid 30 days prior to arrival. If you booked through Airbnb or another 3rd party site, they have collected your payments according to their payment terms & conditions.
Taxes and Fees
Taxes and fees are not included in quoted rates. 14% state sales tax, state and local accommodations taxes and fees, plus a reservation fee are added to all rentals. Tax rates are calculated according to state sales tax, state and local accommodations taxes and fees and local laws in force at the time of the Agreement. Guest is responsible for payment of all applicable taxes in effect at time of occupancy.
No house parties or weddings allowed at properties. If there is a party in the property (as further evidenced by a noise complaint, security report, or by excessive amounts of trash or destruction) the guest will be charged for complete clean and replacement of damaged items and property. If you intend to have a party, please book your reservation from another provider.
Please see individual property listings for the number of vehicles allowed at each rental; please contact us if you'd like to request an exception. Driving and parking on lawns and grassy areas is prohibited. Towing and ticketing will be enforced, and SkyRun is not responsible for, nor will SkyRun pay for the salvage of a vehicle not parked in a designated parking area. To comply with city and county short-term rental permit restrictions, the outdoor driveways/parking areas of some homes are monitored by video camera and local police.
Most properties are WiFi enabled; this is a service paid by the owner and an added benefit to the guest at no additional cost and provided by a local service provider. SkyRun cannot guarantee reliable internet service. Circumstances outside of SkyRun's control may result in internet service interruptions, outages, degradation or what the guest may consider less than satisfactory service to what they may be accustomed to. SkyRun will not reimburse or refund any monies to the guest in the event of any of the above circumstances. If a guest wants to ensure optimized and reliable service, SkyRun recommends guests travel with their own air card or personal hotspot. The guest is accountable for any illegal activity that occurs on the network during their stay.
Check-in & Check-out Times
Check-in time is 4:00pm EST; check-out is 10am EST. Unless arrangements for late check-out are confirmed, SkyRun is authorized to charge for an extra night for any guests remaining past check-out time.
As reservations are carefully scheduled in advance, no refund will be given if a guest leaves prior to their reserved departure date, regardless of reason.
Unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances may occur during your stay including but not limited to, internet, TV, and utility outages, inclement weather, travel delays, limited availability of town services, the closing of common & home amenities (including hot tubs, pools, and fitness centers). Guests are not entitled to full or partial refunds for any unforeseen circumstances. SkyRun as an entity and the reservations associated with a home are not part of or party to the sales contract for a home; in the event that a home is sold and future reservations are not accepted by the new homeowner, reservations are subject to cancellation or the reservation may be moved to another comparable SkyRun property.
Smoking & Pet Policy
No smoking of any kind or pets are allowed in any property, unless otherwise specified in the listing. Failure to comply will result in an automatic $500 minimum charge to your credit card for additional cleaning. Pets are not permitted (including Emotional Support Pets).
Property Cleaning & Damage Disclosure
SkyRun reserves the right to charge your credit card in order to recoup the cost of repairs for any damage done to property. Cleaning after your departure is provided but properties left in poor condition, will be subject to an additional fee.
SkyRun is not the cause for air conditioning or any other appliance that fails to operate properly or for other maintenance issues, including but not limited to, pest control and housekeeping. Guest agrees to notify SkyRun as soon as maintenance or housekeeping issues arise and the issue will be repaired or remedied as soon as possible. No refunds or compensation will be given.
Because we are located in a low-lying area, pest control services are performed regularly. To keep the pest population under control, Guest agrees to allow pest control operators access to the property.
Cancellation & Refund Policy
100% refund if cancelled within 24 hours of reservation made; 100% refund of initial payment up to 30 days prior to check in; 50% refund if cancelled before 14 days of check in; no refund if cancelled within 14 days of check in. Guest cancellations must be in writing. A refund or rescheduling will be permissible if the property becomes inaccessible or if major systems are down for extended periods of time (e.g., loss of electricity or water). No rain checks. Changes in weather, the cancellation or closure of a local event or point of interest, and other outside factors are not grounds for a refund or right to reschedule. Exceptions to this policy will be made exclusively by SkyRun. Protection through our Travel Insurance is strongly recommended for your peace of mind.
Items Left at Property
$50 plus the cost of packing and shipping will be charged to retrieve and return any personal items left at the property.

Condominiums and townhouses are managed by 3rd party Home Owners Associations (HOAs). These HOAs manage and control shared amenities which include but are not limited to outdoor grills, hot tubs, pool, fitness areas, parking structures and areas, picnic areas and landscaping.

Each person who arrives on the PROPERTY does so at their own risk and accepts full liability and responsibility for that risk and whatever occurs to them while they are on or around the PROPERTY. GUESTS acknowledges and accepts these risks and RELEASES, WAIVES, DISCHARGES AND COVENANTS NOT SUE SkyRun Vacation Rentals or the OWNER of the PROPERTY, either personally and/or as a company or corporate representatives, including their members, managers, operators, officials, officers, directors, employees, owners and/or lessees of the PROPERTY, (herein referred to as 'RELEASEES').

WARNINGS: Use of decks, pools, hot tubs, bunk beds, fireplaces, and outdoor grills carry risks that may result in serious injury or death.

Never use a spa while under the influence of drugs or alcohol or if you are taking medications of any kind, or being treated for any illness. A spa should be kept at a temperature less than 104 degrees for personal safety and all bathers must shower before and after use to decrease the possibility of skin problems.
