Check-in time is between 4:00pm and 5:00pm. We cannot guarantee check-in by 5:00pm. We ask for your patience and suggest that you have alternative plans between 4:00pm and closing in case the unit is not yet ready. All units must be inspected by housekeeping management before being released to the guest. Late arrivals will be admitted to the unit by on-site security at the front gate guard house. Check-out is at 10:00am and is strictly enforced. No late check-outs will be given, no exceptions. Guests who fail to fully evacuate the unit by 10:00am will be billed the equivalent to half of the day.

An advance payment is due at the time of booking. Advance payments are applied to your total rent and the remainder is due in form of a final payment 30 days prior to arrival. Advance payments must be made by VISA, MasterCard, American Express or Discover cards. Cash or checks are accepted if making a reservation in person, at the Edgewater front office. Advance rental payments are only refundable through your vacation protection plan with CSA Insurance Services.
