San Juan Islands
Vacation Rental Policies
San Juan Property Management LLC's luxury vacation home rentals start at 4pm and end at 10am.
Tenants agree to a specified number of people per rental, whether it's a San Juan Island house rental, a Friday Harbor vacation rental, or a Lopez Island vacation home. Tenant understands and agrees that smoking is not permitted inside the rental unit; pets are not allowed on the property unless property has been approved as pet friendly and tenant has paid pet fee, and housekeeping services are not provided during your stay. Tenant also understands and agrees that the use of tents, campers, and motor homes are not allowed on the property.
San Juan Property Management is not liable in the event a property becomes unavailable due to circumstances out of our control. In this event, SJPM will make every attempt to secure suitable accommodations or will return your unused fees and rental payments made.
Booking Procedures and Payment Schedule
Payment arrangements must be made by the person named as tenant in the contract and must also be the same person who accepts the rental agreement terms.
Reservations made thirty (30) days or more in advance are confirmed when 50% of the total rental fees are received along with a properly executed rental agreement and any applicable addendums. The total rental amount must be received by SJPM thirty (30) days prior to the occupancy date. In the event that a reservation is made less than 30 days prior to the arrival date, then the total rental amount is due at the time of booking. If final payment is not received by the due date, SJPM will attempt to contact the listed tenant by which ever correspondence method(s) were provided by the tenant to advise them that payment is past due. If a response regarding final payment is not received by SJPM within fourteen (14) days of notice due, this agreement may be considered cancelled by the tenant and SJPM will proceed with the cancellation policy as listed below.
The initial 50% pre-paid property rents are non-refundable if the reservation is cancelled. If the reservation is cancelled after the total rent payment is due and has been paid in full, 80% of the total rental amount will be refunded if the property is re-booked. If the property remains vacant for that time period, 50% of the total rental amount will be refunded.
Because unexpected events can occur prior to your travel, you may consider Travel Insurance to protect your financial investment. Coverage can be obtained through such companies as Travel Guard.
A Non-Refundable Damage Waiver fee of $45.00 is collected on each reservation in lieu of a security deposit. This Damage Waiver provides for up to $500.00 of non-intentional damage to the property. The person named on the reservation and all guests staying in the property will be covered for reported accidental loss or damage up to the maximum coverage limit. This does not negate your responsibilities as a tenant. You must notify San Juan Property Management of any damage to the property during your occupancy or this plan is void.
The Damage Waiver does not cover theft, gross negligence, willful or wanton conduct, intentional damage, pet damage, loss or damage to guest's personal property or rental equipment brought onto the premises, additional cleaning, lost keys, excessive wear and tear, damage caused by a motorized vehicle or watercraft, unauthorized late check-outs, smoking, or any other violation of our rental policies.
San Juan Property Management will determine all necessary repairs and expenses related with any damage. Liability is not limited to the Damage Waiver coverage. If damage caused by the tenants to any part of the rental property exceeds the amount of the Damage Waiver coverage, tenant understands and agrees that they are responsible to pay the additional cost for replacement or repair of damaged items. Documentation of expenses will be provided to the tenant and you authorize San Juan Property Management to charge the credit card on file for any damage not covered by the Damage Waiver.
