Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak Temporary Exception to Sandy Beach Vacation Rentals’ Cancellation Policies

We have Temporarily Altered our Cancellation Policy with our Guests in Mind!

* If you are arriving before May 19, 2020, and would like to voluntarily cancel your reservation:

** You can reschedule your stay, receiving ALL fees (including Processing Fee and Travel Insurance if purchased) issued back in the form of a credit toward a future stay.

*** This credit can be used for any other date in 2020 or 2021. (There are 4 properties that the credit must be used by the end of the year).
*** You can choose any unit; any date and your funds will be credited to that unit stay. We prefer you stay in the same unit you had rented but we understand due to availability that may not be possible.

**** If the unit is more expensive you can pay the difference.
**** If the unit is less expensive, there will be no refund (consider upgrading to a more expensive unit).
**** There are no blackout dates. (Florida is a great place to be at Christmas!)
**** You do not have to choose your dates now (so there is no hurry).
**** Current rates are peak season so rates may be considerably less at different times in the year.

* If you are arriving on or after May 19, 2020, at present, our Sandy Beach Vacation Rentals standard policies apply.

We are still welcoming our guests and truly hope you can travel as planned. Our beaches are still beautiful with the best sunsets & sunshine there is to offer. We hope everyone will need the relaxation after these stressful times. Our vacation rental properties offer you a private getaway, allowing for social distance within a private home or condo, which offers amenities such as high-speed Wi-Fi, fully-equipped kitchens, most with keyless entry (so no interaction is necessary), and most feature a private balcony or deck.

We thank you for choosing a Sandy Beach Vacation Rentals property ~ where we love you to the beach and back and memories last a lifetime. We are all in this together and remain committed to providing the best accommodations for guests to enjoy.
