Rental Policies




Coastal Wave Vacation Rentals has homes on several websites (online travel agencies). However, reservations can be made securely through our company website. Booking directly with Coastal Wave ensures you get our best prices. Once your reservation has been made a rental agreement will be sent to you via email. Please review the agreement and sign it electronically. Coastal Wave reserves the right to cancel your reservation if your rental agreement is not returned within 48 hours. You will be required to pay 50% of the total reservation cost at the time of the booking. The final payment will be due 30 days prior to arrival. The final payment will run automatically to the card on file. However, guests may request a link to update or change this information by emailing Personal checks are accepted but must be received more than 30 days before arrival. Please let us know in advance that you plan to mail a check to us. 


No dogs or other pets are allowed unless the property is pet-friendly, our staff has approved the pet, and a pet addendum has been signed electronically. Pet-friendly homes require a non-refundable pet fee at the time of the reservation. However, pets can be added at any time before arrival provided the aforementioned criteria are met. Otherwise, in the absence of a pet addendum, if a pet(s) is found on the property, the guest will be evicted and there will be no refund. 


Cancellation policies may vary based on the property and time of year. Please review the rental agreement for important dates related to cancellations and refunds. Refunds will not be given for late arrivals, early departures, or no-shows.


If a mandatory evacuation is issued due to a natural disaster such as a hurricane within 48 hours of the guest’s arrival date, guests will be issued a full refund. If a mandatory evacuation occurs during a stay, the guest will be refunded only for the number of days that there was an evacuation order in effect. We recommend that all guests purchase travel insurance, especially during hurricane season.


All reservations come with fees that cover housekeeping, property management, and damage protection. Additionally, state and county taxes are included in the total cost. Some listing sites charge service fees in addition to our charges. Coastal Wave is not responsible for calculating those fees or refunding them in the event of a cancellation. Please keep in mind that although we have damage policies in place, guests may still be held accountable for excessive damages. Furthermore, while we make every effort to ensure that all rates, minimum night stays, and discounts are accurate, a technical error or unintended oversight may prevent us from honoring your reservation.


Seven days prior to arrival, guests that have made all payments and electronically signed their rental agreement, will receive guest instructions specific to each home. These instructions will be sent via text and email and are not available in the home. We recommend that guests print them before they arrive. We request that guests contact us immediately with any maintenance or housekeeping issues. We respond promptly however, sometimes time is needed to schedule services. Equipment and appliances can malfunction and cannot be guaranteed and there will be no refunds.
