We recommend that you browse all of the properties on our website and choose the property that best fits your needs in terms of location, availability and specific features. Our online calendars are up to date and we do our best to keep the amenities tabs
populated with current information on each property. When you find a home you’d like to reserve, you can make an online reservation from the property’s listing page or give us a call to make your booking over the phone. If you decide to book online, we will
receive and process your request ASAP but please note, your reservation is not confirmed until we review your reservation and you receive a rental agreement! Your rental agreement will be sent via email for e-signature - we do this to streamline the process
and make it easy for everyone! Please carefully read the rental agreement and check the accuracy of the dates and information entered. Since you are responsible for this information, please call or email us immediately if any corrections are necessary.
In addition to the nightly or weekly rate, your total rate will include the following fees and taxes:
- Local taxes totaling 7-17% depending on the municipality
- Nonrefundable $75 Reservation Fee + applicable tax
- Departure Cleaning Fee, which varies based on the size of the home
Security Deposit amounts vary based on the property and will be included in your price quote when booking. If your property does not require a security deposit, a credit card is required to be kept on file until the end of your stay to cover any excess cleaning
fees, missing linens or home accessories, damages to the property and its contents not covered by a damage protection policy (if purchased), and/or charges related to violations of the rental agreement. If the rental property does not experience any of the
above, no charges will be made and the deposit will be refunded via the same payment method it was made (credit card refund or paper check) within 14 days of check-out.
ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE PROTECTION
You will have the option to purchase an Accidental Rental Damage Protection policy with your booking for a one time fee of $59. This is a nonrefundable premium fee for an insurance policy that covers $3,000 in accidental damages to the property during your
stay with no deductible. If something gets damaged at your rental, we will first file a claim against your damage protection policy and up to the policy limit ($3,000) there will be no additional charges to you. We highly recommend the purchase of these policies,
especially with larger groups and longer term stays! We file claims regularly and almost always recieve full reimbursement. There is nothing we hate more than having to tell guests that we have to charge for something damaged at a property...so save yourself
the worry of what you or your guests might accidentally damage at an unfamiliar home and focus on enjoying your vacation!
In the event that you need to cancel your reservation 60 days or more prior to your arrival date, you will receive a refund of your entire deposit paid, less the $75 reservation fee and applicable tax as outlined in your rental agreement. You will be charged
your rental amount in its entirety for cancellations within 60 days of your reservation, unless The Holiday Life can rebook the property during the entirety of your previously reserved dates. *Certain seasonal rental properties have a 6-month cancellation
window – refer to your lease!
CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT
Check-In is anytime after 3:00 PM on the day of your arrival and check-out time is 10:00 AM on the day of your departure. You are welcome to request an early check-in or late check-out time and we will accommodate your request when possible.
All homes will be professionally cleaned prior to your arrival. If you would like periodic housekeeping during your stay, we are happy to arrange it for you for an additional charge through our excellent cleaning service. A departure-cleaning fee is included
in your reservation, however you are expected to maintain the home in a clean and tidy condition during your stay and before your departure. This means bagging the trash and placing it in the bins outside, cleaning and putting away the dishes, keeping floors
and surfaces free of food debris, cleaning the barbecue grill, and replacing the home’s accessories and furnishings to the places you found them. Each rental home has a departure checklist included with the welcome guide and left at the property. Per your
rental agreement, you’ll be expected to review the checklist and ensure you are aware of any specific departure procedures for your rental. These policies are simply in place to ensure we are able to keep all of our properties in great condition for guests
that may be coming in shortly after you leave! The cost of any excess cleaning required as well as for any damaged or missing items will be charged against your security deposit or credit card on file.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CLEAN
We pride ourselves on ensuring our homes are diligently cleaned and left sparkling between guests – all without the use of cleaning products with harsh chemicals. Our cleaning crews use Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Aroma therapeutic Household Cleaners wherever
possible in all of our homes. Not only do they smell divine, but they’re made with all natural, eco friendly ingredients that are incredibly effective! You’ll find some of the products in your rental home – feel free to use them for touch up cleaning during
your stay. We know allergies and breathing problems are a reality for an increasing number of our guests. To that end, we are firm about keeping our properties smoke and dander free. Smoking is not allowed inside any of our homes and pets are permitted only
at properties specifically noted as “pet friendly” on the amenities tab for the home. Furthermore, bedding and towels are lightly bleached between guests when possible and most mattresses and pillows are encased with allergy proof covers. We hope our approach
to cleanliness sets your mind at ease when choosing a THL property. We stand by our commitment to clean and if anything seems amiss when you arrive, we encourage you to let us know so we can have someone over to remedy the issue as soon as possible!
Each home will be prepared with fresh linens on all beds as well as bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths for each guest. Pool and beach towels are also provided for each guest at properties with pools/spas and properties walking distance to the beach.
A “start-up” supply of household products such as toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher detergent, dish soap, laundry detergent, garbage bags, all-purpose cleaner, hand soap, shampoo, and body lotion will also be provided for your convenience. Here is a list
of our standard welcome amenities, for reference:
- Hair dryer

- Iron & ironing board
- Matching dishes, silverware and glasses
- Fine glass or crystal stemware

head straight there when you arrive!
The Holiday Life makes every effort to carefully maintain each home and the equipment therein. Just like in your own home, however, unexpected and/or untimely failures of equipment and appliances may occur. If something is not working properly, please call
or email us and report the problem. Email is often better, as there will be written documentation of the issue. If you have a smartphone with a camera and the ability to include a photo of the damaged item in your email to us, that will help us to expedite
your repair! We will attempt to correct the failure as quickly as is reasonably possible, and we ask for your patience and understanding in the interim. We cannot guarantee the condition of televisions, electronics or other included amenities but if something
is not working we will do our best to get it replaced or repaired. No refund or rate adjustment will be made for equipment failures during your stay.
When selecting your vacation home, please carefully note the number of people the property “sleeps”, as that is the maximum occupancy for the home. You will be required to provide the names of all guests occupying the property when completing the reservation
paperwork. Children are included in the total occupancy but exceptions to the maximum occupancy are occasionally made for small children. Undisclosed guests and/or over-occupancy are considered serious violations of your rental agreement and may result in
a charge against your security deposit and/or the immediate termination of occupancy without refund. Only responsible adults 25 years or older may enter a rental agreement with THL.
CONSIDERATION OF NEIGHBORS
Many of our homes are located next to or near the homes of full-time residents. Please be respectful of the quiet communities and keep outside noise to a minimum. House parties are not permitted during your stay and reports of excessive noise or unruly behavior
may result in fines against your security deposit or immediate eviction.
All of our homes are non-smoking properties. Smoking is not permitted inside any of our homes or near any outdoor furniture on the patios or lanais. Evidence of smoking in or near the home will result in a charge for the full cost of remediation as well
as a possible penalty fee.
We love pets! But we also love keeping our properties immaculately clean and dander free for future guests…to that end, we have deemed certain properties to be “Pet Friendly” (noted on the amenities tab) based on our ability to restore the home to it’s pre-pet
state in a reasonable amount of time. At “Pet Friendly” homes, all guest pets must be reported to The Holiday Life at the time of booking and approved in writing. A flat pet cleanup fee of $100 will be due in addition to pet rent of $15 per day, per pet. Unapproved
pets discovered at any THL property will result in possible immediate eviction of the pet as well as a charge for the full cost of cleanup and a penalty fee.
