Booking Confirmations & Cancellations

Your reservation is NOT confirmed until your full payment is processed. We require 100% payment at the time of the reservation.

If you find you need to cancel your reservation with us at any time for any reason, it may not be possible for us to re-rent the home or unit. Your payment, less a 30% cancellation fee based on your rate will only be refunded if the same dates are re-booked. While we make every effort to re-book your dates, please let us know as soon as possible in the event of a cancellation so we can open the dates for someone else.

Security Deposit

An authorized credit card (Visa or MC) is required as a security hold. No additional fees will be charged if all rental terms and conditions are adhered to.

Occupancy Limitations

The number of guests that will occupy your rental must be stated at the time of booking as each rental has specific occupancy limits. Additional guests not included in your rental agreement are required to check-in with Sleeping Sea management and additional fees may apply. Privacy, property lines, and “quiet hours”, observed between 9 pm and 7 am daily, must be respected at all times. Increased vehicle traffic, occupants, excessive noise, or illegal activity may result in fines and/or eviction.

Property Use & Responsibility

You accept liability for any damages caused to the home, including but not limited to; landscaping, misuse of appliances, and/or furnished equipment. If it is necessary to make extensive repairs or replacement, you will be charged for all labor and materials. Guests must immediately notify the owner of any damages or fire to the house and property.

Composting & Recycling

At Sleeping Sea we strive towards sustainability. Please save ALL food waste for our compost and farm animals. Absolutely NO food down the drain as it is harmful to the septic system. Be sure to recycle in the designated bins during your stay. Thank you for following these waste management guidelines.

Cleaning & Garbage Fees

Leave only footprints. In an effort to keep our islands green, please remove all refuse generated during your stay. A removal fee will be charged for any garbage and recyclables left on site. We are aware that this system may present a hardship for some and arrangement can be made for garbage removal at an additional fee. Guest must contact us prior to check-in for details.

Our homes and units are thoroughly cleaned between guests. Additional housekeeping can be arranged during your stay for an aditional fee. You are required to leave your unit in the same general condition in which you received it. In the event of excessively dirty conditions and disorganization, additional fees will apply.

Vehicles

For guests staying at Once In A Blue Moon Farm, please park your car in the guest parking lot and the parking designated for the suites. Loading and unloading is available next to all the units. NO vehicles are allowed on the farm to reduce congestion and to be sure they do not inhibit our tractors and other machinery, unless alternative arrangements are made upon check-in.

Gates

Our locations are gated and fenced to keep eager deer out of our gardens, and to keep our animals safe inside their pastures. We ask if you open a gate, please close it gently behind you. Not all gates are for opening. Please respect all signage, especially on the farm. No guests are allowed in animal pastures or fruit orchards without accompaniment by Sleeping Sea staff.
