kayakersCheck-in Time: Check-in time is after 3:00 PM Central. Every effort is made to have each condo ready for occupancy by the check-in time, but sometimes unforeseen events can delay the readiness of some condos. We ask and thank you for your patience if this occurs.  There will be no discounts offered due to a late check-in.

Check-out Time. Check-out time is no later than 10:00 AM Central.

Advanced Reservation Payment: All reservations are not secured until proper payment is confirmed with an Advanced Reservation Payment. This may be paid by personal check, bank cashier’s check, or credit card (Master Card, Visa, or Discover). If you are paying with a check, we will need to receive the check within fourteen (14) days of initial reservation.

Administration Fee: A non-refundable administration fee & (ARDI) Accidental Rental Damage Insurance fee ($45) will be charged to all reservations. The amount of this fee varies by unit size.

Accidental Damage Protection (ARDI):

For standard vacation rentals, a damage protection fee of $45.00 (plus tax) is added to each reservation and is included in the total quoted to you at booking. The damage protection is non-refundable and covers accidental damages to the unit or its contents up to a replacement cost or repair of $1500.00.  This damage protection does not cover damages by pets, which are not allowed, or willful or gross negligent behavior that results in damages.
