Common Questions about Vacation Rental Homes

How are cancellations/refunds handled?
The cancellation policy associated with your rental agreement will clearly communicate penalties associated with canceling your contract. Note that cancellations due to weather conditions are not permitted. Travel insurance can protect your vacation investment if unforeseen circumstances require you to cancel your trip.

What amenities are included with the home?
In addition to the house and amenities advertised on each listing, we also provide guests with homes supplies as well as a starter pack of toilet paper and paper towel. Dish and laundry detergent, hand soaps, shampoo/conditioner/body wash, trash bags and dish soap are kept in bulk in each home. For longer stays guests are advised to bring their own toiletries or purchase them while in Central Oregon.
How do we check-in and what type of arrival instructions should we anticipate?
A few days prior to your arrival you will receive instructions for check-in as well as information about the area and the home to your email. As a reminder all of our vacation homes are self check-in, check-in time is at 5pm and you will be able to go directly to your home.
Where can I find details on check-in time, smoking, etc.?
Within the rental agreement you can expect to find terms related to check-in and checkout times, maximum occupancy, pet policies, cancellation conditions, and maintenance of the rental. In general, we do not have any rentals that allow smoking on the premises.
Why is there a Maximum Occupancy stipulation for the homes?
Everyone in your party counts as a guest. For fire safety reasons, the cities and counties require permits, which indicate the maximum number of guests that may stay in the vacation rental home. Secondly, our preference is to keep our vacation homes in first rate condition as to allow more open days and less closures for repair.
