POLICIES: 

Seasonal Rates: Monthly rates are seasonal. Starting rates are reflective of off/low season periods.  January, February and March are considered low season months.   
Securing Your Booking: Suites cannot be held without a deposit or payment in full. A credit card “hold” may be used to secure an apartment for a 24-hour period. 
Form of Payment: Wire transfer or certified bank check.  AMEX. Visa/MC (coming soon). We do not accept debit cards. Credit card purchases will be subject to checkout fees.  We impose a surcharge on credit card transactions that is 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.
Serviced Apartments: We arrange for weekly housekeeping & laundry.
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 in terms of additional housekeeping, laundry, utilities and further wear and tear.  
Overnight Guests: We utilize a hybrid version of the hotel model as far as guests and charges based on occupancy. 
Dogs/Pets:  Dogs/Pets are not permitted in the house.

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. Additionally, our variable costs such as utilities, housekeeping and laundry services increase with additional occupants.
