We recommend you contact us directly for an up to date, accurate description of our rates and rate policy (it's simple and clear). We've found the Homeway system (the rental site you're on now) is very confusing and does not help the guests researching a place, or home owners looking to present their property. They were bought by Expedia in the Summer of 2016, and the customer service since then has been abysmal. So respectfully, we encourage you to contact us directly and we promise to get right back to you with answers to your any and all of your questions. Thank you!
