When you book your Hilton Head rental home, villa, or condo a deposit of 50% of the rental rate and taxes plus the 8% processing fee and amenity fee ($79 - $129) is required to confirm the reservation. Deposit can be paid by Discover, MasterCard, Visa or American Express. Deposits are held in Escrow in an FDIC insured, interest bearing account which Guest agrees to waive their right to this interest earned.



Your balance must be paid by credit card, E-check or regular check and is due 30 days before arrival.



If a reservation is cancelled more than 90 days for homes and 60 days for villas before the arrival date, deposit will be returned less the non-refundable reservation fee. If the cancellation occurs inside 90 days for homes and 60 days for villas from the arrival date, the guest will forfeit the deposit, all payments and non-refundable reservation fee. Changes in dates and unit can only be made prior to the 90 day cancellation period for homes and 60 day cancellation period for villas. Travel insurance can be purchased for 7% of your total rental, and is highly recommended.


With the impact of COVID-19, we are willing to work with our guests. In some instances we are willing to reduce the cancellation window by 30 days so guests have the ability to wait and see as things continually change. Please contact our office to discuss all your options available.
