DEPOSITS & PAYMENTS
When you make a reservation we will let you know the amount of the deposit or payment due. If you make a weekly reservation more than 60 days in advance you will be charged a $500 booking deposit. This deposit must be received within 7 days, along with a signed copy of this rental agreement, to confirm your reservation. Payment may be cashier/bank check, money order or personal check. If we do not receive a payment within 7 days we will cancel the reservation and may rent the cottage to someone else.
Final payment, including applicable taxes and fees, is due 60 days prior to occupancy. Reservations made less than 60 days prior to occupancy require payment in full within 7 days of reservation. Payment may be cashier/bank check or money order only. Personal checks are not acceptable for Final payment.
If a reservation is made less than 30 days in advance of occupancy full payment of all rent, applicable taxes, and fees must be received within 7 days. Payments made less than 30 days in advance must be by cashiers/bank check or money order only. No personal checks will be accepted.
TAXES & FEES
All reservations are subject to 6% State and 5% City taxes. Bounced personal checks will incur a $40 fee and may result in cancellation of your reservation.
CANCELLATIONS & TRANSFERS
Cancellations made more than 60 days in advance of occupancy will be subject to a cancellation fee of 10% of the rental rate.
Cancellations made less than 60 days prior to occupancy will be subject to full forfeiture of the total rental rate unless we are able to re-rent the property. If we are able to re-rent the property for the entire period, and payment has cleared, a full refund will be made within 30 days, via check.
Transfers between properties will invoke the cancellation policy. Transfers between weeks at the same property are allowed up to 60 days prior to the existing reservation. All cancellation and transfer requests must be completed by a personal phone call with Marywood Manor management. A voice and/or email message, without personal conversation, is not sufficient to avoid missing notification dates.
