Q: When is the latest Vacation Rental insurance can be purchased?
A: This insurance can be purchased up until the final trip payment is made or 30 days prior to arrival, whichever comes first.
Q: Why is there a deadline for checkout times?
A: Cleaning rooms, condos, homes and resorts between Guests is a big job. It can take hours to make a place spic and span. Housekeepers need to know they can start immediately upon departure of a Guest to a unit fully clean before the next guest arrives. Staying late disrupts the cleaning schedule. If the next Guest is not scheduled for immediate arrival, a unit may be available for late checkouts for which charges usually apply.
Q: So what are Vacation Rentals?
A: That's an easy one. Any lodging unit that has a full kitchen & bath, is fully outfitted with linens and towels and usually detached bedrooms is a Vacation Rental Home. These may be apartments, cabins, condos, chalets, houses or villas. In some countries they are called Holiday-lets, Holiday homes, Holiday Villas or Gites (France.)
Q: Are housekeeper tips mandatory in Vacation Rentals?
A: Tips for housekeepers at lodging accommodations of all kinds have become the sign of considerate Guests and just plain good manners. Due to their square footage and amenities, housekeeping at Vacation Rentals is back-breaking work. Considerate Guests will leave a tip of five to ten percent of the total rent. Far less than at a restaurant, but housekeepers work far harder.
Q: What is the weather like in Hawaii?
A: In a word - paradise. That is not just a slogan. Temperatures run around 80 degree pretty much every day. A few degrees warmer or cooler depending on the time of year. We can get a tropical shower in the afternoon but they usually leave quickly. Be sure to bring your sun tan lotion.
