Thank you for choosing Island Rentals of Hilton Head as your vacation provider. Below is a list of our basic rental policies.
Payment: A deposit via credit card is required at the time of booking, with the balance due 30 days prior to your arrival date. Second payments may be made by check, e-check, or credit card, however a 3% convenience fee is added to the remaining
balance if credit card is used for secondary payment. All reservations that have not paid their balance within 10 days of arrival will have the card on file charged and the 3% fee automatically added. Bookings within 30 days of arrival require payment in full
at the time of booking. Age: Guests must be over the age of 21 to book a property with Island Rentals. The party named on the lease must be present at the home for the duration of the rental.
Pet Policy: Many of our properties are pet friendly. An additional pet fee is required and varies based on length of stay. We request that all pets are crated when left alone in the property, or that gates are brought to confine pets to
proper areas of the home. New environments may cause even the most well-behaved animal to cause damage and act out. Please do not allow pets on any furniture in the property. Pet hair and pet stains are much more time intensive and costly to remove from upholstered
furniture, and should the furniture need steam cleaned, additional charges may occur.
Cancellation Policy: Reservations that are canceled greater than 30 days prior to the start of your stay will receive a full refund minus the non-refundable Reservation Fee and the 10% sales tax on that fee. No cancellations are allowed
30 days or less prior to your arrival. Travel Insurance is recommended if you feel a situation may occur where you have to cancel within 30 days of the start of your stay. All Reservations made for a duration of
1 month or longer are non refundable. Travel Insurance is highly recommended.
Travel Insurance: CSA Vacation Rental Insurance has been offered with your reservation. Vacation Rental Insurance reimburses for pre-paid, non-refundable expenses due to certain unforeseeable circumstances that may jeopardize your vacation
and force you to incur unplanned expenses. We strongly recommend you purchase this valuable protection. View a Description of Coverage/Policy at
Damage: Damage Protection insurance may be purchased and includes up to $3000 worth of coverage for any damages to the property that occur during your stay. We understand that accidents do happen, and encourage you to report any damage,
as our ability to repair it before the next rental becomes much more difficult if damage is not disclosed in advance. Full details of the Vacation Rental Damage coverage are contained in the Description of Coverage or Insurance Policy at
Housekeeping: Each unit is cleaned after each rental occurs, and all sheets, towels, hand towels, and washcloths are stripped out of the unit and replaced with clean sets. A starter set of amenities, hotel size soaps, shampoo, dish detergent,
one roll of paper towels, and two rolls of toilet paper per bathroom are also provided. Please bring your own beach towels, as our bath towels are not permitted to leave the home.
Bicycles: Many of our properties come with bicycles provided by
South Beach Bicycle Rentals. These bicycles are left at the property year round and include free maintenance. If your bicycles require service please call the number on the bicycles and
South Beach Bicycle Rentals will replace them free of charge. Adult Bicycles only are provided, no substitutions. Additional bicycles may be rented by contacting
South Beach Bicycle Rentals at
843-671-2453. A 15% discount on additional rentals will be provided, just mention you are staying with Island Rentals, or if reserving via their website, using coupon code
Tennis & Pickleball: Some of our properties include free tennis privileges from the
South Beach Racquet Club. If your property includes these privileges, it will be specified in the listing. These privileges include 1 free hour of Tennis per day, and 1/2 off of court time
Hurricane & Weather Refund Policy: No refunds will be issued for any situation arising from hurricanes including evacuations without Travel Insurance coverage. No refunds will be given for cancellation or interruption of your stay due to
other inclement weather.
Prohibited Vehicles: Trailers, U-hauls, Motor Homes, Motorcycles and/or commercial or recreational vehicles are prohibited in the Plantations on Hilton Head Island. NO watercraft trailers (boats, jet skis, etc.) are allowed into the Plantations
without prior arrangements for dry dock and/or boat slip. Parking is not allowed on streets.
Pool Heating: Private pools are cleaned twice a week. In the interim, a skimmer net has been provided. There will be a charge for an extra cleaning. Most pools can be heated, for an additional charge (plus tax), and will be activated on
the day of arrival. Spa jets will NOT operate unless payment has been made for heat. Some villa and complex pools are heated seasonally. However, this is at the discretion of the owner’s association and cannot be guaranteed.
