Rates are based upon time of year and number of guests/bedrooms occupied. One bedroom rate is for 1 to 2 persons. Two bedrooms rate is for 2 to 4 persons. PLEASE NOTE: The additional 'per person' rate is added to the weekly rate to get the TOTAL RATE FOR SECOND BEDROOM. It is not a 'per person' add on but an add on for renting the second bedroom. Example: High Season 2 bedroom rate is $1350 or Low Season 2 bedroom rate is $950. Sorry for the confusion but web site does not allow me the option to input rates correctly. Please contact me by email for a rate schedule if further assistance is needed. Note that Low Season rates DO NOT include internet & TV service, they are available as optional additional charges during low season only. They are INCLUDED in High Season rates.
