Once you have chosen the vacation property that best suits your needs, check the availability calendar for that property to ensure availability on your chosen dates.
Our rental weeks run from Saturday to Saturday, but during our low season, there may be some flexibility. Next, you should contact us using our Reservation Request form and we will reply as soon as possible and happily answer any questions you may have.
Once you have made your decision and confirmed availability - we will then e-mail you our Rental Agreement. You should print and complete it and either e-mail or fax it back to us.
We require a $500.00 Reservation Deposit, which secures your rental dates. The rental season in Nova Scotia is short and in very high demand, so when you make a reservation you own that time slot.
All reservations require a valid credit card for confirmation.
The balance, plus a refundable $250.00 Damage Deposit, is due 90 days before your check-in date. Any last minute reservations, or reservations made less than 90 days before arrival date, must be paid in full at time of booking.
Once we have received the completed Rental Agreement, we will process your deposit and mail you a receipt. We will also send you details explaining when the final payment is due.
Once the final payment has been made we will send you all the details you will need including driving directions, cottage rules and instructions on where to find the key.
The $250.00 Damage Deposit will be refunded to you within 14 days of your departure, as long as there is no damage to the vacation property beyond normal wear and tear; no extraordinary cleaning required; no missing items and the key has been returned.
Your payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard, E-mail Money Transfer, Personal or Certified Cheque (in Canadian funds). There is a $25.00 charge for NSF Cheques.
There will be no taxes on top of the shown rental rates, saving you 15% over other hotel or resort reservations.
If for some reason you must cancel your reservation, your notice to us must be made in writing by post, fax or e-mail and is subject to the following terms:
If you cancel the rental reservation more than 90 days before the check-in date, $250.00 will be forfeited from the $500.00 Reservation Deposit.
If you cancel the rental reservation between 60 and 90 days before the check-in date, 50% of the rental fee will be forfeited, unless the property can be rented to another tenant on the same or better terms and conditions.
If you cancel the rental reservation between 30 and 60 days before the check-in date, 75% of the rental fee is forfeited.
If you cancel the rental reservation less than 30 days before the check-in date, 100% of the rental fee is forfeited.
In all cases of cancellation, we will refund the damage deposit of $250.00 in full. We will try to rent the property to another guest, but this cannot be guaranteed. No-shows, late arrivals and early departures are all non-refundable.
Vacation cancellation insurance is always a good idea.
