Check-in time is 4:00 p.m. The premises and its amenities may not be available prior to that time. Every effort is made to have your property cleaned and prepared for you by 4:00 p.m. but it is not guaranteed. After-hours check-in can be made with prior notification to our office.

The occupancy on each accommodation is limited to and will not exceed the number of persons indicated on the rental agreement. Exceeding maximum occupancy violates the terms and conditions of the agreement and may be subject to cancellation of reservation and forfeiture of rental funds.



Any use of the dwelling other than residential use during a family vacation must be approved by the Agent. If the dwelling is to be used for any event, such as weddings, reception, or large gatherings, the Guest agrees to submit a request for approval to the Agent and adhere to the Agent’s determination on that request. If the Agent approves the event, the Guest may be required to pay an additional deposit and event fee. If the Guest misrepresents an event to the Agent, the Guest agrees that the Agent may refuse occupancy or have the dwelling vacated and the guest will not be entitled to a refund.



Pets are not permitted in our homes and villas or on the premises unless previously authorized. If Guest is found in violation of this Policy, Island Time Hilton Head reserves the right to immediately cancel your rental reservation and occupancy of the dwelling. Guests could be asked to leave without a refund if a pets found on premise without prior permission and will be charged of pet fee of $500 for the violation. Please note that we cannot guarantee that properties advertised as not allowing pets have never had a pet in the property. There is a nonrefundable pet fee for all dog- friendly properties. $300.00 minimum weekly for the first dog and $150.00 minimum weekly for each additional dog (if the property allows for more than one dog- must be approved by the owner). Dogs must weigh less than 30 lbs and are not permitted on furniture or beds in the property. Damages found will result in additional charges to the card on file.

Pool heat is available at an additional charge and must be arranged at least 14 days prior to your arrival to avoid additional service fees. The pool heat charge will be based on the season and prevailing rates at the time of your rental. Due to unforeseen mechanical problems with heating of pools, we will refund unused heat fee, but no adjustment will be made to rental rate. Private pools are cleaned once a week with an additional cleaned scheduled mi-week during the summer season. There will be a charge for extra requested cleanings. In the interim, a skimmer net is provided for guest use.



Spa heat for vacation homes is an additional charge similar to the pool heat. Refunds will not be offered for unforeseen mechanical problems that prevent spas from operating properly. Spa instructions will be provided onsite or in your Hospitality app and must be followed in order to keep spas and pools circulating normally. There will be a charge if service calls are necessary to correct pool and spa issues from negligence.
