To secure your place in paradise, let us know you are ready to proceed with booking. A rental agreement will be emailed out to you. Look over it and see if you have any questions. We require 50% to secure the dates and the final 50% is due at least 90 days prior to arrival. If you are booking a year out, we are happy to offer the option of four payments spread throughout the year instead of two. We accept personal checks, a direct deposit to our Wells Fargo account, or payment through PayPal. If you would like to use a credit card, you may do so through PayPal. Since we accept credit cards only as a convenience to our guests, we do not pay the credit card fee that PayPal will charge. We will provide an address to which you can mail the agreement and initial payment. If you plan to use PayPal or Wells Fargo direct deposit, you can email the agreement back to us if that is more convenient. Please note that a reservation is NOT secured, and requested dates will remain available to others, until the rental agreement and deposit have been received by the owner.
