Young’s Suncoast Vacation Rentals is able to make tentative reservations for future time periods for Preferred Repeat Guests. All advance reservations are subject to rates applicable at the time of actual reservation arrival and available inventory of rental units each year. No future year reservations will be honored at previous year rates. Peak season reservations may not be held beyond January 15th of any year without guest approval of the applicable rate and submission by guest of required prepayments.
The number of guests, including children, is limited to the sleeping capacity of each vacation rental property and is determined by bedroom quantity, furnishings and accommodation size. Exceptions may be made for infants under the age of two. Individuals less than 21 years of age are not permitted to rent. Guests under the age of 21 must have direct adult supervision at all times when on rental premises. Absolutely no unit will be rented to vacationing students under 21 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. Motor homes or campers are not permitted to hook up to utilities on any rental premises.
Guests may be asked to immediately vacate rental premises, without refunds or compensation, in the event of unnecessary and loud noise (nuisance or disturbance), breaking of Young’s Suncoast or condominium association rules or other illegal activities. Any reservation obtained under false pretense and not adhering to minimum age, occupancy limits, pet policy and supervision requirements are subject to immediate eviction without refund or compensation.
We reserve the right to substitute comparable accommodations without notice or liability should the reserved unit be out of order or not available for any reason. When comparable accommodations are not available, renter will have the option of selecting from available properties at the published rate or receiving a complete refund of the reservation prepayments. Under some circumstances, rates may also be subject to change, depending on the date your reservation was made.
We love pets as much as anyone; however, dogs are allowed only in specifically identified pet friendly properties and with applicable non refundable pet fees. A pet or evidence of a pet found on premises at any non pet friendly property will cause immediate tenant eviction and forfeiture of entire rent payments, prepayments, taxes and fees.
