Vacation Rental Terms and Agreement
A minimum Down Payment of 25% of the rental rate plus the CSA Travel Insurance Protection Premium, if purchased, will be required upon booking the reservation. The Down Payment is a portion of your rent and will be applied to your grand total; therefore, it will NOT be refunded following your departure. Reservations made under false pretenses of any kind will result in the forfeiture of all monies paid, as well as the cancellation of your reservation.

Final Payment (balance due after the Down Payment has been paid) is required 30 days prior to arrival. If a reservation is made within 30 days of arrival, the Final Payment is due in full upon booking. Check, Cashier's Check or Money Order is also available for the Final Payment and should be made payable to Book PCB and must be received 30 days prior to arrival. If a worthless check is submitted for payment, a $50.00 NSF charge will be added to your reservation and payment may only be completed with Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. If you do not fulfill your Final Payment, your reservation will be cancelled and all payments that have been submitted will be forfeited. Please note: it is your responsibility to contact CENTURY 21 Ryan by the Final Payment date noted on your confirmation.

Once your reservation down payment has been received, there will be NO REFUNDS given except through coverage under CSA Travel Insurance Protection and it is considered a covered event.  Please note: CENTURY 21’s cancellation policy does not provide refunds for early departure due to unforeseen developments such as illnesses, personal circumstance, or inclement weather unless you purchased the additional trip insurance and it is a covered event.  Because of this, we strongly suggest that you purchase trip insurance.

Travel Insurance is an additional 6.95% of your total rental rate. The premium for CSA Vacation Travel Protection has NOT been included in the cost unless you requested the insurance at the time of booking. The plan is optional and we strongly recommend it. In case of any unforeseen events, this insurance helps protect your vacation investment. Please review our cancellation policy above. By initialing this form, you acknowledge you have read and understand our cancellation policy and choose NOT to purchase CSA Travel Rental Insurance _______ (Initial to Decline). Questions concerning CSA Travel Protection can be obtained by reviewing the certificate of insurance on their website or calling 800-554-9839. Hurricane Policy: Should a hurricane or a tropical storm threaten our area, we will receive evacuation instructions from the National Hurricane Center and our local governing officials. If the “Mandatory Evacuation” order is given, refunds will only be given by CSA Travel Protection if you have purchased coverage before the storm was named. CENTURY 21 Ryan does not issue refund of any rent payments.

We respectfully request that you remember you are staying in someone’s home: please treat it with care.

Furnishings are subject to change. Décor, style, color schemes and inventory vary since properties are individually owned. Some internet photos may differ due to owner updates or changes.

At all times, the maximum occupancy is the number the unit will sleep and the number stated on your confirmation, including children. Violation of this rule will result in immediate eviction without refund of rent.

Check-in is at 4:00PM CST. Once your Final Payment has been settled and your Rental Agreement has been returned, you will be set up for express check-in. For properties equipped with lock boxes or electronic keyless locks, you will obtain your combination via email one week prior to arrival. Early check-in often is not possible; therefore, we encourage you to enjoy our public beaches and attractions if you arrive in the area early. Our housekeeping standards may require extra cleaning time for some properties, which may delay check-in. Although keys may be released at 4:00 p.m., no guarantee is made that properties will be cleaned by 4:00 p.m. Rate adjustments or refunds will not be issued for properties that are not ready at the standard check-in time.

Check-out is 10:00AM CST sharp as our housekeepers are scheduled to arrive immediately upon departure. An early departure key drop box is provided at our CENTURY 21 Ryan Realty office for those properties not equipped with a lock box or an electronic keyless lock. Please note: Guest will be charged an additional fee for late check-out. Upon departure, it is your responsibility to leave the property reasonably clean and in good order (additional cleaning or trash disposal charges will apply.), to leave kitchen items (dishes, cookware, etc.) clean, dispose of all trash in proper outside containers and lock all doors and windows.

Just as might occur at your own well-maintained home, mechanical failures and other breakdowns could occur.

Refunds are not made for inclement weather, lack of public utilities, the unavailability of private community amenities, mechanical failures or malfunctioning equipment. Where applicable, there is no guarantee that pools will be heated. These amenities are extras provided in addition to the beach house or condominium rental. Should any equipment malfunction, we will make every effort to have it repaired as soon as possible. Although all attempts will be made to correct the situation, some breakdowns cannot be prevented or repaired during your occupancy.

For properties that are not equipped with an electronic keypad entry, you will be supplied with 2 room keys. There will be a $25.00 replacement fee for each key that is not returned.
