In an effort to make everyone’s stay as pleasant as possible, Fern Grotto Inn has adopted these Terms and Conditions which shall apply to all Guests.  By making a reservation with us, you agree to the following Terms and Conditions:

Rental Payment:  The total amount of your invoice is due at time of booking.

Cancellation Policy:  If notice is received within 90 days of arrival, we are unable to issue a refund, unless we are able to re-book, then we will refund your Rent minus a $50 processing fee. If notice is received 90 days or more in advance of arrival, a full refund will be issued minus a $50 cancellation fee. Cancellations and early departures due to illness or inclement weather do not warrant any refund.

Credit Card Authorization:  I understand and consent to the use of the credit card provided without my original signature on the charge slip, and that this Credit Card Authorization cannot be revoked and will not terminate until 30 days after the premises are vacated. Charges may include, but not be limited to, damages beyond normal wear and tear.

Severe Weather: As we all know, the weather here is tropical but can be uncertain.  We therefore do not refund Rents or Deposits due to canceled or shortened stays because of weather. Departures due to inclement weather do not warrant a refund.

Cleaning: There is a one-time cleaning fee. An initial set up of toiletries is provided. Extra items needed are the responsibility of the Guest.

Check-Out Procedures: We know you are on vacation and we do appreciate your business. But we do have to ask that you abide by our Check-Out Procedures.  The main reason for this is so we can get the Unit ready for the next guests, who often arrive only hours after you leave. We accommodate late check out and early check in if available. Please check with us. If you leave the Unit in great shape, the next family can have access to the Unit on time. We really appreciate you following these procedures:

1. Check-out time is 11:00 am.
2. Please clean all dishes.
3. Take all of the trash to the bins outside, by the parking lot entrance.
4. Leave the keys inside the unit and lock the door behind you.

Please leave the Unit neat and orderly to avoid additional charges. If the cleaning crew finds that the Unit has been left excessively dirty, you will be billed for the additional cleaning time. If the cleaning crew detects any evidence of smoking in the units you will be billed an additional $200 to deodorize the unit. Please leave the house in as good as shape as possible. The cleaner we find it, the faster we can turn it over to the next guest. We appreciate your help.
