Young‘s Suncoast FAQ’s
Questions about your Orange Beach or Gulf Shores vacation rental?
Anyone age 25 and above may rent a vacation property through Young’s Suncoast Vacation Rentals. Absolutely no unit will be rented to vacationing students under 25 who are not accompanied by a parent or guardian of age as mentioned above. The person checking in must be the person who is renting the unit. Any reservations obtained under false pretense may be subject to loss of prepayment, rental payments, taxes and fees.
We require a non-refundable processing fee and a non-refundable convenience fee at the time of booking to confirm your reservation. Processing and convenience fees may vary depending on where you booked your reservation.
If purchasing optional travel insurance, payment for the insurance is also required at the time of booking. Please visit our Trip Insurance page to learn more.

When comparable accommodations are not available, the renter will have the option of selecting from available properties at the published rate, or receive a complete refund of any pre-payments. Under some circumstances, rates may also be subject to change, depending on the date your reservation was made.
Cancellation notice must be given at least 30 days prior to arrival for daily and weekly condo rentals, 60 days for house rentals and 90 days for monthly reservations. If it is necessary to cancel your reservation with more than the required advance notice, all pre-payments are refundable, less your non-refundable processing fee, non-refundable convenience fee, and trip insurance premium, if purchased. Payments with less than the specified number of days notice will be held for lost rent and result in forfeiture of pre-payment(s), including all pre-paid rent, fees and taxes. There will be no refunds issued for early departures. Any changes in the dates of a reservation will incur a $30 administrative change fee.
