HAS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY CHANGED SINCE COVID-19?

Yes. We have adopted an Interim Cancellation Policy for new reservations. If you cancel more than 60 days prior to arrival, you will receive a refund of your initial deposit less the processing fee of 5%. Our flexibilities include the option to purchase travel insurance at the time of booking that allows you to CANCEL FOR ANY REASON and still be reimbursed. Check it out!. We offer a large enough discount for those who purchase this that it covers the cost of the insurance and protects your investment. Since the travel insurance without increasing your cost, we are not refunding money if your arrival date is less than 60 days and you chose not to purchase the insurance. The travel insurance is 9.8% of the total reservation, while the discount is 10% off the nightly rate. You enter promo code CFAR at checkout, and we will manually give the discount. If you have another discount, it can still be used at the same time.

Those with existing reservations made prior to March 13, 2020:
If you cancel more than 60 days prior to arrival, you receive a refund less the 5% processing fee. If you cancel 30-60 days prior to arrival, you receive a refund less the processing fee and a $100 cancellation fee. If you cancel less than 30 days prior to arrival, we will immediately put the property back on the market for rent. There would be a $100 cancellation fee and loss of the processing fee, and the amount of refund would depend on if the property was successfully rented after your cancellation. To minimize your loss of funds, we are offering to allow you to change your reservation date rather than cancel. Your payment will be credited to your account for a future stay to be used within 365 days from the date of "change". Since you have no financial penalty for cancellation, you will not be able to cancel after the "change", and you can only make the change one time.
