If all Deposit or Balance Due payments are not received by the due dates given on guest’s Confirmation Invoice, the reservation will be considered cancelled under the terms and conditions provided herein and are subject to deposit and cancellation policies.

Payment by guest or guest’s agent constitutes acceptance and confirmation by the guest and guest’s agent of the deposit and cancellation and use policies, restrictions, and additional information given in the rental agreement. If a credit card is used by guest or guest’s agent for advance deposits or payments, guests and guest’s agent hereby agree to have the advance deposits and payments listed in the guest’s confirmation Invoice charged to the credit card and further agree that said amounts shall be subject to the deposit and cancellation policies given on the Confirmation Invoice. Any changes in the deposit and cancellation and use policies are effective only if executed in writing by an officer or the General Manager of Caribound Ltd.

Rates, fees and taxes are subject to change without notice. The daily rate may include amenity fees to cover use of certain amenities at the property. Higher rates apply to houses and holiday periods such as Easter, Independence Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Monthly rates are available at many properties on a seasonal basis; please call for specific details.

The Caribound Ltd website automatically applies the current best available rate. If a stay is eligible for the current best rate, the price quote already has the discount applied. No further discounts will be applied after booking.

Advance Deposits

At time of booking, a credit card advance deposit is required for the following:
twenty five percent (25%) of the total stay, and
Full payment of Vacation Rental Insurance and tax, if purchased.

Reservations made on or after the final payment due date require full payment at time of booking.

Larger homes and monthly stays have different minimum-stay requirements, advance reservation, advance payment and cancellation policies. These will be reviewed at the time of reservation and confirmation.

Advance deposit payments are non-refundable. Caribound Ltd recommends that guests purchase Vacation Rental Insurance in case travel plans change.

A credit card will be required at time of booking for all reservations regardless of payment method.

Guest must present a credit card at check-in for incidentals and damages not covered under the Rental Unit Damage Protection. No credit card fees will be charged to guests.

Reservation Fee

All reservations include a non-refundable reservation fee equal to a percentage of the rate or a flat amount plus tax to help cover the administrative cost of bookings, front desk services and other value-added programs. The reservation fee applies to each reservation, even if multiple stays are booked simultaneously. The reservation fee is automatically added to the reservation and will appear as a separate line item in the guest’s folio. The reservation fee is not charged to extended-stay rentals longer than 28 days.

Amenity Fee

A mandatory amenity fee may be required on reservations at certain properties.

Telephone Use

Local calls are free, but all long distance calls must be charged to a telephone card, credit card or the guest’s home phone.
Smoking Policy

To preserve the condition of our properties, no smoking is permitted in any unit designated as non-smoking. To cover the cleaning costs necessary to return the unit to its proper condition, a fine will be added to the final bill for any unit in which Caribound Ltd reasonably believes smoking has occurred in a non-smoking unit during the guest’s stay. The amount of the fine will be determined by Caribound Ltd. All common areas are smoke free, including hallways, lobbies, garages, and pool and hot tub areas. Guest agrees not to smoke inside non-smoking rental units, on decks, patios or balconies, or in any other designated non-smoking area including public spaces if ordinances or notices prohibit such activity.
