We aim to resolve complaints within a two month period from receipt, the details of which will be kept confidential to only the parties involved.

Note: SPECIFICALLY TO VRBO BOOKINGS--VRBO's system allows us to charge but only for one pet at booking, if you bring 2 pets (again max of 2 allowed and any pet friendlies) you will need to pay us for the second pet directly outside of VRBO. Your pets must be treated for fleas and ticks using a reliable flea and tick treatment plan prior to arrival. Pets are not allowed on the furniture or bedding and all pet hair must be cleaned up prior to departure--a $200 or more fee will be charged if there is any report of pet hair on bedding and furniture (this is in addition to the nightly fees). Guest pets must be leashed at all times when outside of the unit. Guests must pick up after pets and tightly tie the remnants in a plastic bag and dispose in the trash toter outside. The violation of any terms of this pet policy subjects the guest to additional fines or termination of the rental period.

Pets must be kenneled if you are leaving them unattended for their safety and that of our rental unit.
