When looking for a dog friendly home, please remember that dogs are an additional fee and must be approved.  Sorry, no cats.

When booking your home online please keep in mind~ 
1: We do not take bookings more that one year in advance, and we do need to wait until anyone currently at the home has left.
2: Your 'ending date' is always the day of your departure. 
3: Our online booking processor is not connected to our homes availability calendars and will allow you to book specific dates online that may not be available, please check the homes calendar to confirm availability before booking! 
4: We take bookings online in the same order as we do phone calls, so if someone books online and their notification reaches our email before yours than we have to honor the first in. 
5: You commit to your reservation at the time you put a deposit down, NOT when you sign the agreement form.
6: NO 2 night bookings. *exceptions may be made if there are only two nights available but must be pre-approved.

If you have guests arriving late, it is important that they know how to get to the home before they get to the Island, as the NP office may not be open and they might not be able to reach you as cell phones do not always work here.  You can call if you will be having friends or family arriving after you who will need to know how to get to your rental home, we would be happy to email you directions to give to them.

If you will require excess parking,  have a large boat, or more than one boat, please be sure your home will accommodate you. Please keep in mind during certain times of the year, such as spring/fall, some amenities may not be available, ie docks, boat lifts or hot tubs. Please confirm before booking.

If you are a repeat at a particular home please do not assume that things will be exactly the same from year to year.  Homeowners may decide to make updates, or take away something that you may have enjoyed the year prior. Please check  our homes pages for any changes to the amenities & descriptions, OR you can also refer to our websites main page for highlights of any unexpected changes due to things that are out of our control, such as weather or  water levels.  We appreciate your understanding in these unfortunate situations!
