Q: When will you Re-open / What is happening?
A: We are healthy and as of the end of April we have have only had 5 cases county wide inside a thousand miles and nearly 40 thousand residents! Our current county wide emergency order is set to expire 5/31/2020, which reopens beaches, parks, waterways and hospitality operations. With the ability to dine-in and have the room to accommodate normal in-house activities, we are thankful to be in a unique position to provide services to those who seek them in a way that hotels cannot.
Q: Is Trip Insuance Still Available?
A: YES It is and offered through our website or by phone! Vacation Rental Insurance provides coverage for the loss of prepaid, non-refundable expenses due to certain unforeseeable circumstances that may jeopardize your vacation investment and force you to incur unplanned expenses. Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption coverage is available for events such as a sickness or injury of yourself, family member or traveling companion; flight delays due to adverse weather; interruptions of road service; terrorist acts; and mandatory evacuations. The plan also includes other valuable coverages such as Medical and Dental, Baggage, and Emergency Assistance and Transportation in addition to useful services such as identity theft, concierge and 24/7/365 emergency assistance.
