Check-In time is 3:00 p.m. or later. Please plan your trip accordingly, as entry is not available until the condo is cleaned and inspected. Occasionally, we may need the hours of 3:00-4:00 p.m. to perform additional cleaning or maintenance. No check-in is permitted unless your reservation has been paid in full including all fees and we have received a copy of your government issued identification, and you have been sent a code to the building entry door and to the condo entry door along with the physical address of the building.
EARLY CHECK-IN: Early check in might be available for a fee, depending on occupancy levels. To inquire about early check-in, please contact the office. You will be notified if we either can or cannot provide the service so that you may plan your trip accordingly.
CHECK-OUT TIME: Check out time is 11:00 a.m. Late checkout may be available for a fee, depending on occupancy levels. We must have time to clean and inspect all properties for arriving guests. An unapproved late check-out will result in additional charges to your rental account equal to one night’s rent and will prevent you from renting the condo in the future. Please return all items to the rental unit.

Any damage resulting in additional charges over and above the damage deposit or damage waiver will be charged to your credit card on file.
