POLICIES: 

30-Night Minimum Stays

Seasonal Rates
Monthly rates are seasonal. Starting rates are reflective of low season periods.  January, February and March are considered low season months.   
Securing Your Booking
Suites cannot be held without a down payment or payment in full. A credit card “hold” may be used to secure an apartment for a 12-hour period. 
Form of Payment 
Accommodation charges are payable by wire transfer or certified bank check.  AMEX/Visa/MC (coming soon). We do not accept debit cards. Credit card purchases are subject to checkout fees.  We impose a surcharge on credit card transactions not greater than our cost of acceptance (3-4% of total value of charge will be added to the transaction).  
Cancellations
We adhere to a strict cancellation policy. Cancellations will be charged 100% of the booking arrangement. The same cancellation policy will also apply in the case of the booking arrangement being shortened. We recommend the purchase of Travel Insurance.
Identity of Guest(s)
The individual making the reservation must be the guest staying at the Accommodation unless the Guest has clearly notified the Host otherwise prior to making the reservation. 
Maximum Occupancy Number
There are designated maximum occupancy limits for each of our suites of 1-2 people.  The number of guests may never exceed the maximum number of guests allowed in the Accommodation. Children count toward the number of guests. The number of occupants as specified in the booking agreement must be adhered to. Only guests named in the original reservation whose IDs are verified in advance are permitted to stay in the Accommodation. Unauthorized guests, any sublet, sublease or substitution of guests is prohibited.  If a Guest arrives for check-in with more than the specified number of guests than stated in the booking confirmation, the Host is entitled to refuse access to the Accommodation and this will be deemed a cancellation on the day of check-in by the Guest and the Host’s Applicable Cancellation Policy will apply.  Similarly if at any point in time during the term of the Accommodation there are more people than booked, the Host is entitled to cancel the booking and the Host’s Applicable Cancellation Policy will apply.
Hotel Model Pricing
Pricing for your stay is based on a specific number of occupants. We operate under an extended stay hotel model in that our rates are based on occupancy. We technically are an extended stay hotel facility and this format is part of our business model, which helps keep regular rates as low as we are able to. Additionally, as one might already be aware, it is costly to us when additional persons stay at the house.
Overnight Guests 
We utilize a hybrid version of the hotel model as far as guests and charge based on occupancy.  Primary Guests may have an overnight visitor provided advance notice has been given to the host and the maximum occupancy limit for the suite is not violated. A monthly or daily fee is applicable. The fee covers additional operating expenses such as wear and tear, utilities, more prep and cleaning, water (showers, toilets, sink us), supplies such as towels and bedding, laundry & internet.
Serviced Apartments 
We arrange for weekly housekeeping & laundry.
Pets
Pets are not permitted in the house.
Smoking
Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the house, terrace or in any of the public areas including 25 feet from the building. This includes e-cigarettes.

We utilize a hybrid version of the hotel model as far as overnight guests and charges are based on occupancy. This as opposed to an open-ended apartment model, although even conventional rental apartment pricing is somewhat based on occupancy where maintenance and utility charges can get adjusted. Our variable costs such as utilities, housekeeping and laundry services increase with additional occupants.

Occupancy Tax

• A rental home may have more than one room. The tax will be $2.00 per room per day on each of the rooms that make up the home plus the hotel room occupancy tax for the entire home rental. (For example: The tax on a home with 4 rooms will be $8.00 per day plus the hotel room occupancy tax for the entire suite rental). New York City defines a room as “Any room of any kind, other than a bathroom or lavatory, in any part or portion of a hotel/home which is available for, or let out for, use or possession for any purpose other than a place of assembly.”

Permanent Residents

  • No tax is due from guests who are considered to be permanent residents. To be considered a permanent resident of New York State, a guest must stay for at least 180 consecutive days without interruption (see also below information).
  • To be exempt from all taxes, the occupant must have a signed lease agreement with the term exceeding 179 consecutive days. If the occupant does not complete 180 days of continuous occupancy, any taxes not previously collected become immediately due and payable (see below).
  • Technically, a person who enters into an agreement for occupancy for 180 consecutive days or more does not become a “permanent resident” under the law until he/she has been an occupant for 180 consecutive days, and the operator is liable for the collection of the tax until that occupancy for 180 consecutive days has been completed. However, an occupant can obtain permanent resident status prior to completing 180 days of consecutive occupancy by requesting a lease from the hotel operator. Where the occupant has requested such a lease, the hotel operator should not collect the tax for any day, starting on the date the lease was requested, that falls within a period of continuous occupancy by the occupant. However, if the occupant does not complete 180 days of continuous occupancy, any taxes not previously collected become immediately due and payable and are to be collected by the hotel operator.
