RENTAL HOUSE POLICIES RULES :
Rates and policies are subject to change and vary during both high and low season periods and for some special requests. Please review on line calendar and rental site for detailed rates.
The cost of 25% of the entire reservation should be remitted by check or will be charged to your credit card to reserve your booking and the balance 60 days prior to check in. If your travel plans change and you must cancel your reservation, please call us at least 60 days prior to your arrival date for a cheerful refund of your deposit less a $250 processing fee. In the unlikely event that you must cancel with less than 60 days notice, shorten your stay or check out early, please understand that we must ask you to take responsibility for your entire reservation. If we can rebook the house for that time at the original rate then a full or partial refund will be made less the aforementioned cancellation fee. To insure against adverse circumstances, we strongly advise that you take out travel insurance.
To confirm your reservation a valid credit card must be supplied with an expiration date at least one month beyond that of the completion date of the rental, as well as full name, address, cell and land line telephone and numbers of renter. All prices quoted are plus tax and cleaning fee.
Arrival time is between 4.30 pm and 5.30 pm and departure by 11 am unless other arrangements are specifically made in advance. An extension of your stay beyond these dates and times unless also arranged in advance will be considered an additional day’s rental and charged accordingly.
The house key can be picked up from and returned to the Shorecrest Bed and Breakfast along with any beach passes or other additional items supplied that are not part of the beach house supplies unless other arrangements have been made.
There is a maximum sleepover occupancy which varies from house to house. Please refer to the web listing and confirmation receipt for details. The renter must supply the names of all persons who will be sleeping in the house.
Large parties or late night events (after 11pm) are not allowed unless booked as part of an event. If the police have to be called to the house for any reason due to disturbance such as loud music or behavior the rental will be invalidated and the entire cost of the stay forfeited. Any damage beyond normal wear will be charged to your credit card and a valid receipt for work done will be supplied to you. Similarly please do not remove household items as you will be charged for their replacement.
There is no smoking permitted inside the house or rooms; however you may smoke in the Garden or deck area. There is a $500 house cleaning fee for violation of this rule. Smoking inside the house will result in invalidation of this lease and you will be asked to leave immediately without refund or return of your security deposit.
Dogs that are fully house trained are welcome in some houses. There is an additional deep cleaning fee of $125- $175 depending on the property. If the carpets or furniture are soiled or your pet sheds profusely there may be an additional fee as appropriate. Animals are not allowed on the furniture and if we find that the furniture or bedding is soiled or needs special cleaning due to pet hair, there will be an additional charge of $250 depending on the condition. Similarly owners must pick up after their dog from the garden and beach and must be dispose of in the appropriate containers. No animals are to be left unattended in any of the houses unless they are secured in a crate. If your dog barks for extended lengths of time when he is left alone then he may not be left as this could disturb other residents of the neighborhood. Since one of our houses recently experienced a large amount of damage due to a dog being left alone in the house, we now require a $750 security deposit in advance for pets, returnable once the property has been cleaned and inspected.
Cleaning and Garbage Disposal:
Please dispose of all garbage in the trash bags provided. Only some houses have trash pick up service and there are many wild animals in the vicinity so it is best not to leave trash outside unless contained in the bin provided with the lid firmly attached. Please read the manual provided for your particular rental.
There is an additional housekeeping and garbage removal fee for the first week of any stay. For stays of two weeks or longer arrangements can be made to have our cleaning team come to the house weekly for an additional fee. In some houses there is a weekly $50 garbage collection fee per week for stays longer than one week as all garbage collection in Southold is privately contracted for. In Souhtold township enough yellow garbage bags will be provided to get you started and separate recycling bins. You will need to purchase additional yellow town bins at the local store if pick up is provided at the house. Shorecrest Beach House guests may use the dumpster at the rear of the BnB. Please discuss with management refuse arrangements for your particular house.
