Often prospective guests ask pertinent questions about vacationing on Hilton Head such as the reservation process, policies and what they should bring. We have collected these questions and created this list for your review in the hopes that we may answer some of the questions that you might have.

What is the cancellation policy?

No cancellations will be accepted including weather related issues unless CSA Vacation Rental Insurance was purchased. Cancellation 90 days or more prior to arrival without travel insurance will be allowed and a full refund of payments made less the reservation fee will be issued. Cancellations made 31-89 days prior to arrival will result in a forfeiture of the deposit payment made. Cancellations 30 days prior to arrival will result in a full forfeiture of payment made. Cancellations can be made up until 5pm the day prior to the balance due date of the reservation, but no later as your balance payment posts at midnight on the due date. Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay forfeit the full payment credit and the right to reschedule. Cancellation by early departure does not warrant any credit of rent. If you accepted vacation rental insurance, the premium for CSA Vacation Rental Insurance has been included in the cost of your initial deposit. Vacation Rental Insurance reimburses for pre-paid non-refundable expenses due to certain unforeseeable circumstances that may cause you to cancel, interrupt or delay your trip. 

What is due at the time of reservation?

Once your reservation has been made, a rental agreement will be e-mailed to you. A deposit of 50% of the total cost is required and will be charged to the credit card on file for the reservation. Your balance is due 30 days prior to arrival and will be automatically charged to the card on file, unless the guest notifies us otherwise. When making a reservation less than 30 days prior to arrival, the full amount will be charged to the credit card on file for the reservation.

Is the accidental damage plan optional?

The accidental damage plan is optional. But if you chose to forgo this $75 protection plan, you will be charged a $10,000 security deposit that will be held until after departure.

Is the accidental damage plan refundable?

The accidental damage plan is not refundable.

What credit cards do we accept?

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

How do I pick up my keys when the office is closed?

Where can I pick up information about Activities, Dining and Shopping?

The Hilton Head Island Welcome Center is located at 100 William Hilton Parkway, on the right side of US Hwy. 278, about one mile from the foot of the bridge as you come onto the Island.

Where can I go to the beach?

All of the beach is public, from the ocean to the high water mark. Access to the beach, however, is often private, but all of our homes & villas have beach access.

Otherwise, feel free to pass through Chaplin Park and use the public beach access at the end of Burkes Beach Road. All other properties are located in line with beach access.
