While you are welcome to check in at any time on the day of your arrival, we promise to have your lodging ready by 3PM.

Check-out is at 11am the day of your departure. If you need extra time, please check with the Villas Office. If you do not receive approval, we will have to add an additional night to your bill.

We are sorry, but we are no longer able to accept multiple deposits.

While we do require a deposit to secure your reservation, we will not need your full payment until you check-in.

What is the cancellation policy?

If you cancel 45 days out or more in advance your deposit is fully refundable and you will not incur any penalty. If you are inside the 45-day window, we will keep your deposit until we sell the room. If this happens we will issue a full refund on the deposit. However, if we cannot sell the room, we do reserve the right to keep your deposit.

Can all of our rooms be together?

It is always our goal to keep your group together (unless you ask us not to!). If this is not possible, which can happen when making arrangements close to your arrival date, we’ll make every effort to secure rooms that are close together. We’ll try our best, though we can never guarantee to get everyone under one roof.

Can all of our units be on the ground floor?

We understand the desirability of ground floor units, though since we are popular with many seniors and less abled clients, it can be hard to get everyone exactly where they want to be. We’ll try, though we appreciate your understanding when we prioritize ground floor units for people who would be excessively challenged by upper floor lodging.

Can we get extra tables and chairs put outside our villa?

If you can give us a week’s notice, we can make this happen (depending on availability). Please discuss your needs with our reservation agents.
