Is your pool open during the winter months?

Our Vineyard Pool and Spa are open year-round. Our Hilltop pool is open from early April to early October, weather dependent.

Where do I check in?

Check-in time begins at 4:00 p.m. During busy seasons, the property may not be available until 5:00 p.m. Directions to your vacation home will be emailed and texted to you before your scheduled arrival. Every effort is made to have each home ready by 4:00 p.m., but no guarantee is made as to the exact time of occupancy. Housekeeping and maintenance personnel must provide services between occupancies for each home in preparation for incoming guests. On occasion, housekeeping and/or maintenance services may not be completed by your 4:00 p.m. check-in time. This situation rarely occurs and we apologize in advance if your check-in time is delayed.

What is the departure time?

The check-out time is 11 a.m. sharp. A late check-out fee of $150.00 will apply on late departures. Please call the morning of your departure to ask if a complimentary one-hour late checkout is available.

Note: this can only be extended on homes that do not have an arrival that same day.

Is there a cleaning fee for homes?

Yes, a one-time cleaning fee is charged for each guest's stay. The amount of this fee is based on the bedrooms, baths, and overall size of the accommodation you select. Extra cleaning fees will be charged if it is necessary to perform cleaning beyond the average amount for the home.

Do I need to bring linens?

No, all of our vacation rentals have professionally laundered, high-quality sheets and towels. Pool towels are provided in each home.

Do you provide paper products, soaps, and other household supplies?

Yes - our vacation rentals are furnished with a supply of paper and soap products to begin your stay with us. This includes paper towels, toilet paper, face tissue, bath soap, dishwashing soap, and a starter amount of laundry soap. We encourage you to bring additional products with you for longer-term stays. For health and safety reasons, we do not provide any spices or condiments.
