METHODS OF PAYMENTS: Reservations require an advanced deposit of roughly 50% of the rent total, due within 10 days the date the reservation is made. If we do not receive your deposit within the 10-day period, your reservation will be cancelled. Final payment, which includes the balance of the rental amount, any applicable security deposits, and any additional fees, are due 60 days prior to arrival. We accept cash, bank checks, money orders and all major credit cards. There will be a 3% surcharge added to every credit card transaction, and checks can only be used for reservations taken more than 30 days prior to the arrival date.
SECURITY DEPOSITS: Some owners require a security deposit. If the property is left in satisfactory condition, the security deposit will be refunded within 7 days of your departure. If the property is left in unsatisfactory condition, any cleaning or damage fees will be deducted from the security deposit at the discretion of the homeowner.

In the event there is a RI state mandate preventing visitors from coming to RI at the time of your rental, you will receive a refund less 10% and any previously incurred fees; the re-renting condition will not be necessary.
