What is check in and check out time?
You can check into your cottage any time after 3:00pm.
If you arrive early and your cottage is not yet ready you are welcome to leave your car, use the pool, have lunch at the local Deli or visit the beach. Check out time is 10:00am. We are sorry but there are no exceptions.

What is the cancellation policy?
Cancellations can be made with 40 or more days notice for a full refund of the deposit. Cancellations with less than 40 days notice forfeit the deposit.

Is parking available?
Parking is provided for one car for each cottage – limited parking does not allow space for trailers or RV’s.

What is the hurricane policy?
Direct hurricane strikes are not common in our area of Florida but they are always a risk. The National Hurricane Center’s web site has the most accurate information on hurricanes.
