Home > Rental Policies
  1. Reservations. All reservations are subject to booking rule requirements. Some properties may require a weekly stay during peak season.
  2. Check-In/Check-Out Time: Check-in is between 4:00pm - 5:00pm we cannot guarantee check-in by 5:00pm during holidays and peak season your patience will be greatly appreciated in these instances. Guest who will be arriving later than 5:00pm should refer to your confirmation packet for check-in location and late arrival instructions. Absolute check-out time is 10:00am so we may prepare for our next arrival.
  3. Rates are based on property features, location, and season, and can be found listed on this website. Rates are subject to change without notice. For monthly rentals, please see the website at: www.DestinVacation.com or call us at (800) 225-7652. Cleaning charge, sales tax, administration and booking fee will be added to all reservations. These fees will vary with each property.
  4. Rental Payments: Final rental payments are due in full 30 days prior to arrival. Payments may be made by cash, traveler’s check, bank money order, credit card or personal check with proper identification. Credit cards will not be accepted for monthly stays. In the event of cancellation, refunds must be obtained from Red Sky Travel Insurance and are subject to their policies and conditions. To protect against the loss of your rental payments, travel insurance is strongly recommended.
  5. Monthly Bookings: Advance rent payment of $500.00 is required at the time of booking and will be deducted from the last month’s rent. Cancellation or changes of reservations must be made 60 days prior to arrival for all monthly bookings. There will be no refunds for late arrivals or early departures and the $500.00 advance rent payment less a $75.00 cancellation fee will be forfeited to the owner of the rental unit.
  6. Advance Rent Payment: 40% of total rent amount is required within 10 days of initial reservation. If the advance rent is not received within 10 days of booking, your reservation will be cancelled. Reservations made 30 days prior to arrival require an electronic check or credit card advance rent payment upon booking. Advance rent payment is only refundable in the event of cancellation through RED SKY TRAVEL INSURANCE or if the property is rebooked.
  7. Travel Protection Insurance: Newman Dailey Resort Properties has partnered with Red Sky Travel Insurance to provide Sun Trip Preserver® coverage for our guests. It is automatically calculated and added to your rental rate upon booking. The plan is optional but we strongly recommend it. In case of any unforeseen events, this insurance helps protect your vacation investment. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO PURCHASE THIS COVERAGE NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN. You can decline the coverage by signing the waiver form enclosed with your Confirmation and returning it to Newman-Dailey within 10 days of receipt of your confirmation. To learn more about Sun Trip Preserver, please visit www.trippreserver.com/sun-trip.html or calling 866-889-7409.
  8. Cancellation of Reservations: Please contact our office as soon as possible in the event you must cancel or change properties. If you choose to decline Red Sky Travel Insurance, we will only refund your advance/final rental payments if the property is re-rented for the same time period and rate, less $75.00 cancellation fee. Once your reservation has been confirmed, any cancellations date or property changes will be subject to this cancellation policy. To prevent loss of rental payments we strongly recommend purchasing Red Sky Travel Insurance.
  9. Hurricane Policy: Should a hurricane or tropical storm threaten our area we will receive evacuation instructions from the National Hurricane Center and our local governing officials. If the “Mandatory Evacuation” order is given, refunds will only be given by Red Sky Travel Insurance if you have purchased coverage before the storm was named. Newman-Dailey will not issue refund of any rent payments.
