Renting a private home is different than staying at a hotel. It is important to ask questions before you reserve. We have done our best to describe our properties, however, guest expectations vary. If you have special requests or needs please ask before you reserve. We want to avoid renter's remorse or the old 'this was not what I thought it was going to be like'. In most cases guests never asked any questions!!!! Refunds at the time of check in are not permitted.

Thank you!
