Terms and Conditions

Terms and Conditions

If booking online, you will be asked to read and accept these Terms and Conditions. That is your legal acceptance of these terms and conditions. Please print a copy for your reference.
If booking by phone, you will receive a copy of the Terms and Conditions by email, along with other confirmation information. It must be signed and returned prior to receiving the code or keys to your rental.

Reservations & Deposits - Reservations can be made online or over the phone and the responsible party must be 25 years of age or older.    

When booking your reservation through our company website, a payment by credit card of 50% of the total rental fee is required. You will receive an email confirmation of the payment and details of the reservation. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.

The remaining balance is due no later than 30 days prior to your check-in date.  By accepting the terms of this rental agreement, you authorize Coastal Bend Property Management to automatically charge your credit card on file for your remaining balance unless you make other payment arrangements. For rentals longer than one month, other payment arrangements for the balance can be made.

For rentals longer than 2 months, the following policies apply:
A deposit in the amount of one month's rent will be required at the time the reservation is made. This will be applied to the last month's rent.
Each month's rent (except for the last month) is due 30 days in advance. Your credit card will be charged unless prior arrangements are made.

Reservations placed within 30 days of check-in date will require payment in full at the time of booking the reservation and must be paid with credit/debit cards only.

We only accept checks on reservations made more than 30 days before the check-in date to allow time for processing. If paying by check, payment must be received no later than 5 days after booking your reservation or the reservation will be cancelled. Please reference reservation dates and confirmation number when sending checks.

Reservations made through booking sites such as VRBO, HomeAway, Google, Expedia, Airbnb, etc. will follow the payment policies for those individual sites.

Taxes - Texas lodging tax and any County or city occupancy taxes that apply are added to your total rent and will be due when the balance of your rent is paid.

Cancellations - Cancellations must be submitted in writing (letter or email) and confirmed no later than 30 days prior to the original check-in date in order to receive a refund.  
For rentals longer than 2 months, the following policies apply: Cancellations must be submitted in writing (letter or email) and confirmed no later than 60 days prior to the original check-in date in order to receive a refund.
All cancellations will be subject to a 10% service charge.  
Refunds will not be given for cancellations, changes, or rescheduling done after 30 days prior to your arrival date. In the case of a "No-Show" the reservation will be treated as a cancellation, and no refunds will be given.

There are no exceptions. We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance to avoid losing your vacation investment due to unforeseen cancellations. You may purchase travel insurance at the time you make this reservation or call the office to purchase it at a later date.

Rescheduling/Changes - You may reschedule or change your reservation one time free of charge after your original reservation. All reservations changes or rescheduling changes thereafter are subject to a $25 processing fee for each rescheduling. All rescheduling must be done prior to 30 days before your arrival date.  No refunds or rebates will be offered for guest's inability to arrive on scheduled date or for having to depart early for any reason.

Damage to Property - As a part of your stay, you may purchase a Vacation Rental Damage Protection plan designed to cover unintentional damages to the rental unit interior that occur during your stay provided they are disclosed to management prior to check-out.

If purchased, the policy will pay a maximum benefit of $3000. Any damages that exceed $3000 or are not covered under the plan will be charged to the credit card on file. If, during your stay at one of our rental properties, an insured person causes any damage to real or personal property of the unit as a result of inadvertent acts or omissions, the Insurer will reimburse the Insured for the cost of repair or actual cash value of such property up to a maximum benefit of $3000. Certain terms and conditions apply. Full details of the Vacation Rental Damage coverage are contained in the Description of Coverage or Insurance Policy, www.vacationrentalinsurance.com/g10vrd.

The Vacation Rental Damage plan can be purchased up to, and including at, check-in. If purchasing the plan at check-in, cash or a valid credit card must be used. Admittance to the rental unit will not be permitted without either the Damage Plan or a $3000 damage deposit.

By submitting payment for this plan, you authorize and request CSA Travel Protection and Insurance Services to pay directly Coastal Bend Property Management any amount payable under the terms and conditions of the Vacation Rental Damage. If you do not wish to purchase the Vacation Rental Damage Protection you will be charged $3000 for a damage deposit.

Please contact Coastal Bend Property Management directly if you do not wish to participate in this assignment. If you do not wish to purchase the Vacation Rental Damage Protection, a $3000 damage deposit will be required upon check-in.

Any damages found upon check in must be reported immediately and within 2 hours of check in or you will assume responsibility for any damages found. Tenants are responsible for all unreported damages, and damage caused by negligence, and willful and wanton conduct. 

Pets - All properties that allow pets have a nonrefundable pet fee of $100 for the first pet. The fee varies for additional pets, if allowed. Please register all pets when booking your reservation. Any unauthorized pet is an automatic $200 fine and immediate eviction with no refund.

Pets must be completely housebroken, well-behaved and pest-free. Pets are not allowed on furniture. Guests will be charged for additional cleaning for removing pet hair and other pet-related material from furniture, linens/towels or the yard. Guests are agreeing that by signing these Terms and Conditions, they are authorizing Coastal Bend Property Management to charge Guest’s credit card on file for any damages sustained as a result of pets. 

No Smoking - All our properties are non-smoking. Smoking is NOT allowed. Any evidence of smoking, including odor, ashes, cigarette butts, etc., will result in an immediate $500 fine, plus any cost incurred in ridding the rental of smoking residue or damages.

While we understand that you may have additional guests over, no parties, large groups or additional overnight guests are allowed. Exceeding the maximum occupancy or having parties/large groups at the property will be reason for eviction without reimbursement of rents and deposits.

Please be aware and cautious with your little loved ones.  

Keys & Car Tags - If a guest loses their keys or tags, there is a $25.00 charge per key and/or tag.

A/C & Refrigerators - Please do not turn the A/C units below 70 degrees. This will cause the unit to freeze and you could be charged for the maintenance call. The refrigerators work best at their normal settings. Please do not overload the refrigerator with warm food and drinks and turn them to the highest settings. The refrigerator will not be able to cool the food fast enough to prevent it from spoiling even at the highest settings.
