Yes. No advance reservations will be made for less than one week
in season (June, July and August). Nightly rentals, however, can
be arranged on some properties on a last-minute basis by calling
our office on Tuesday before the weekend you plan to come to the
beach. Please, three-night minimum.
A reservation change is treated like a new reservation, requiring a separate
advance payment. Your payment on the original reservation will
be refunded to you if the property is re-rented, and the new payment
is received. We strongly recommend that you are sure of your plans
before you make any payments, because the payments are at risk if
your plans change. Travel insurance can help reduce some, but not all,
of your risk. Read on.
In case of cancellation, there is no refund, unless the same unit is rerented,
confirmed and paid in full, for the same number of days as
your original reservation. If we re-rent the unit for less money for part
of the time you reserved, the shortage in rent we receive from the new
guest will come from your deposit. Your balance, less a $100 handling
fee, will be returned to you.
Cancellations and transfers must be confirmed in writing or fax. Travel
insurance is included in your first deposit figure. It is optional, but
Guests bear the risk of mandatory evacuations, ordered by the
Governor. Travel Insurance, mentioned in the paragraph above, is your
only protection for lost rents.
Travel Insurance charges are automatically added to your advance rent
payment. If you do not want to buy this coverage, you may delete the
charge by indicating “No” and signing the Deposit Request Form that
must be returned with your deposit. Some, not all, other cancellation
situations are covered by the insurance also. We strongly recommend it
simply for the mandatory evacuation coverage.
If you have any questions whatsoever about cancellation insurance,
before purchasing or after purchasing, you should call Red Sky
directly 866-889-7409. For more information, please visit
Absolutely not. These are quiet, family beaches. If you reserve a unit
for a houseparty and we discover it when you check in, you are not
allowed to occupy the unit. Your payments will not be refunded. If
we discover a houseparty in a home, the houseparty is forced to leave
with no refund of rent. A houseparty may be, but is not limited to,
any group made up predominately of young people 25 or under. If
you have any questions whatsoever about whether your group may be
considered a houseparty, ask your reservationist for a clear understanding.
Failure to do so could result in great disappointment during your
vacation and loss of deposit and rent.
If you reserve a rental property during either the last two weeks of May
or the first two weeks in June, you will receive a special form asking
for names and ages of every person in your group. This form is not
designed to get overly personal with you or to offend you in any way,
unless your group is a houseparty. This form is designed to insure
quiet, adult and family groups that they will not have their vacations
spoiled by noisy, rowdy groups of under-aged party people.
Absolutely no pets of any kind are allowed in or on the property of any
of our properties. No exceptions will be made unless noted with a dog
paw by the property's description. If you will be vacationing at one of
our dog friendly properties, a $200 per pet additional charge will be
added to your reservation. You may bring up to 2 dogs which cannot
exceed 40 pounds. Any dog damage including additional cleaning or
pest extermination will result in additional charges. Please note the
county leash law is in effect and is enforced. You are required to clean
up after your dog. Violators can be fined up to $200 or given 30 days
in jail. Don't risk termination of your occupancy.
Arrange for the following items that may be needed during your stay:
salt, pepper, sugar, paper towels, toilet paper, soap, dish and laundry
detergent and cleaning supplies. These items are not provided by the
owner or the rental agent. Rollaway beds, full-size cribs, portacribs,
and high chairs can be rented through local vendors. Please reserve in
advance. The supply is limited.
We are happy to receive mail and messages for you. Please be sure to
tell the folks at home or at the office the name and phone number of
the rental unit you have reserved. Mail sent in care of Dunes Beach
Home Rentals can be picked up at our office. A fax machine is also
available in our office. Our fax number is 843-237-9312.
All rental units are equipped with telephones unless otherwise indicated
on your reservation deposit request letter. The phone number is
included in the information printed on your reservation confirmation.
No long distance calls are to be placed from these phones unless they are
billed to your calling card. A $25 handling fee will be charged if telephone
privileges are abused. If you report calls placed or received in error to our
front desk and pay estimated charges, the handling fee will be waived.
There is no extra charge for internet when it is provided at the property.
Dunes Beach Home Rentals does have internet access at our office
for Dunes’ guests to use during business hours.
Occupancy is strictly limited to maximum listed. Children are counted
unless they are babies in cribs. No sleeping bags on the floor, please.
Please call the office in case of mechanical failure. Please be sure to
check plugs and breakers/fuses before reporting an appliance for repair.
Our office can tell you where the fuse box is located. No appliances
or air conditioners are guaranteed. There will be no refunds on their
failure. We try to keep them in good working condition and we repair
any failure as soon as possible, taking into consideration service personnel
work load, parts availability and nature of work, but we give no
refunds for breakdowns. Guest agrees that Dunes Beach Home Rentals
or its agents may enter premises for the purpose of making necessary
repairs and/or maintenance, or other necessary purposes.
Pool hours are at the discretion of the condominium or management
and are subject to change. There will be no refunds given for discretionary
pool closings. Please note rules regarding babies and diapers.
