With the vast amount of properties and locations, the minimum length of stay required can vary from rental to rental. Please inquire about minimum stay requirements with your Exceptional Stays reservations agent. Some properties will accommodate shorter stays upon request.
No. You may check in on whichever day of the week you prefer.
50% of the rent plus tax is due at booking. The deposit becomes 100% (i.e. the entire rental fee is due and payable at the time of booking) for reservations made less than 60 days prior to the intended arrival date.
Deposit refunds are available if a reservation is canceled at least 60 days prior to the scheduled arrival date. In this event, the entire deposit shall be refundable, less the first night's rent + tax/fees. No refunds are available within 60 days or less of the scheduled arrival time. For stays of 30 days or longer, the initial deposit is non-refundable.
Up to $5,000 per reservation can be placed on a credit card. Any remaining balance above the $5,000 limit, must be paid via wire transfer, e-payment or check.
This depends on the country in which the property is rented. For those vacation rentals located in the United States, Damage Insurance is available in lieu of a security deposit. For $59, this Damage Insurance Waiver includes insurance coverage for up to $3,000 in damages. For those Vacation Rentals that are not eligible for Damage Insurance, security deposits typically range from $3,000-$5,000. Security deposits can be used at check-out to cover additional costs of stay such as groceries, liquors, and activities.
Trip insurance is highly recommended. Don’t let a last-minute emergency cause you and your loved ones a loss of funds in addition to your trip cancellation. Please contact Exceptional Stays for additional information on adding trip insurance to your vacation rental package.
Check-in time is any time after 4:00 pm on the arrival date. Check-out time is 10:00 am on the departure date. If you require an early check-in or late check-out we are happy to accommodate where possible. Please contact us to make arrangements.
When you book your Exceptional Stays vacation home, you’ll receive a link to a personalized guest portal containing complete and detailed information regarding the residence; including where to find things, how to operate appliances, internet network and password information, and much more. If you happen to run into a problem that written material does not help you in solving, our team is available 24/7 to assist you. Typically, problems can be solved over the phone with a quick troubleshoot, but if this is not the case, we can arrange on-site assistance with an expert. For those properties in Mexico, Morocco, or Spain, you’ll often be welcomed by the house manager, who will walk you through the home and introduce you to additional staff. Your house manager is there to resolve any concerns you may have, no matter the time of day.
You will arrive to find your property immaculately clean and well-stocked. If you would like additional cleaning services or linen changes during your stay, it is our pleasure to schedule them at your convenience. Check-out clean is part of the rental service and is included in your rental rate. For those homes staffed with a housekeeper, housekeeping is included at no additional charge.
Each residence is fully stocked with linens, towels, paper products, detergent, coffee filters, cleaning products, dish soap, hand soap, and a starter set of shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and body wash. Each property is equipped with laundry facilities and Wi-Fi, as well as humidifiers, fans, and hair dryers. Kitchens have all necessary small appliances, cookware, flatware, and dishware.
