Reservations for your vacation can be made in person, by phone or by internet. If you book your reservation online, please print the lease agreement when prompted. If you book your reservation over the phone a Deposit Request/Lease Agreement will be emailed or faxed to you by the following business day. Please read the lease carefully, checking the dates for accuracy. After reviewing your Deposit Request/Lease Agreement and determining that you will confirm your vacation rental, please sign the agreement and return it by mail or fax within 5 days of the date the reservation was made. For any reservation made between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the “Deposit Request/Lease Agreement has to be returned within 72 hours (3 days). Return the original agreement along with 50% of the rent, a $135.00 (plus tax) administration fee (includes Incidental Damage Program), and optional travel insurance payment. Initial payments may be made by personal check, certified check or credit card (Visa/MasterCard). There will be a $25.00 charge for all returned checks due to non-sufficient funds or stop payment. Please refer to the specific office as to where to mail your payment and your Deposit Request/Lease Agreement. The address will be located at the top left corner of your Deposit Request/Lease Agreement.
If we do not hear from you, and have not received the signed contract with required payments within specified days from the date your reservation was made, your reservation will automatically be cancelled.
If you make a reservation less than 30 days prior to check-in,
the entire balance is due within 48 hours. We will fax the Deposit
Request/Lease Agreement, which needs to be signed and returned as
soon as possible. We will not accept personal checks if your reservation
is made 30 days prior to arrival- payment must be made by credit
card (Visa/MasterCard/American Express) or certified funds sent via express mail.
Even in prime season, nightly rentals for most units can be arranged
on a last minute basis. This can be done by calling our office on
Wednesday before the weekend/partial week that you plan to arrive.
Generally, a two night minimum is required, but may differ depending
upon the unit. Also, check our website for specials.
Nightly rates are calculated by dividing the weekly rate by five
When Intracoastal receives your initial payment and signed Deposit
Request/Lease Agreement, you will be emailed a Reservation Confirmation.
This will be the last notice that you will receive from Intracoastal.
This will show your balance due and the due date for final payment.
The final payment will include the remaining 50% of rent, all taxes,
and the security deposit or peace of mind payment, depending on
which option you have chosen on your initial contract. Intracoastal
must receive your final payment no later than 30 days prior to arrival
date in order to retain your reservation. Final payment may be made
by check, cashier’s check or credit card (Visa/MasterCard).
CSA travel protection insurance is offered to every guest. Travel
protection insurance charges are automatically added and due with
your advance rental payment. IF YOU DECIDE TO DECLINE THIS COVERAGE,
please initial appropriately on your Deposit Request/Lease Agreement
AND DEDUCT THAT AMOUNT FROM THE TOTAL. Although this plan is optional,
WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT. You and your family will be reimbursed
by CSA in cases of unforeseeable events such as illness, injury
or mandatory hurricane evacuation. NO REFUNDS will
be given in the event of unforeseeable cancellations, including
hurricane evacuations if you choose to not purchase trip insurance.
TRAVEL INSURANCE CANNOT BE ADDED OR DEDUCTED AFTER YOUR INITIAL
PAYMENT HAS BEEN RECEIVED. For more detailed information please refer to: "Travel Insurance".
Included in every reservation is guest protection for any incidental damage that may occur during your vacation. This program covers items that are damaged by either an accident or of no fault of the guest or allowed occupants. An illegal act, storm damage, willful or intentional damage caused by the guest or allowed occupants is not covered by this program.

The occupancy limit of each property is clearly stated on your
lease regardless of beds available. Children are counted in the
occupancy unless they are under the age of 2 and normally sleep
in a crib. Misrepresentation may result in the guests being asked
to vacate the property without a refund. No mobile units (such as
campers) can be used at rental properties for sleeping, cooking,
or any purpose other than transportation. (Most condominiums have
parking restrictions for recreational vehicles). We maintain a family
atmosphere for the quiet enjoyment of our guests. We only rent to
family groups. ABSOLUTELY NO HOUSE PARTIES, YOUTH GROUPS,
FRATERNITIES, WEDDINGS, RECEPTIONS, MEETINGS OR PARTIES ALLOWED!
INTRACOASTAL DOES NOT RENT TO STUDENTS OR GROUPS OF STUDENTS UNDER
ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, EVEN IF A PARENT OR LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE ADULT
MAKES THE RESERVATION AND/OR PAYS THE RENT. Should a group
misrepresent itself, they will be required to vacate the premises
immediately and all monies will be forfeited.
Many of you will vacation with other family members or friends,
but only one person will sign the lease. We hold the leaseholder
responsible for payment and all other facets of
the leaseholder responsibilities as outlined in the lease, including
all guests. Please designate one person in your family to be responsible
for sending in one payment per reservation. THIS IS A VACATION RENTAL
AGREEMENT UNDER THE NORTH CAROLINA VACATION RENTAL ACT. THE RIGHTS
AND OBLIGASTIONS OF THE PARTIES TO THIS AGREEMENT ARE DEFINED BY

Please be aware that certain properties may have their own rules
and regulations which must be observed, such as pool rules, no grilling,
no smoking, no boats, trailers or jet skis, recreational vehicles
and the number and size of vehicle. Parking may be extremely limited
and is strictly enforced by non-Intracoastal entities.
All cancellations or reservation changes on which payment has been received must be made in writing. If no payment has been made, you may cancel at any time, without penalty. You are not entitled to any reimbursement for any advanced rent or full rent payment unless the property is rented for the same amount of time and for the same rental amount. If the property is re-rented, you will receive reimbursement less the CSA trip insurance premium (if selected) and additional $150 fee. Requesting a transfer to another unit or changing weeks is considered the same as a cancellation.
In order to protect your vacation investment, please consider
purchasing the travel insurance (information is provided with your
deposit request). If you have any questions concerning coverage
provided for the travel insurance, please call the insurance carrier
at 1-800-554-9839. We are not licensed insurance agents and can
not answer any question pertaining to the insurance.
Your vacation accommodations will be ready after 4:00p.m.
on the beginning date of your reservation. In order to allow sufficient
time to prepare the property for your use, we ask that you not request
early occupancy. At check-in, you will receive 2 sets of keys and
directions to your vacation home. We can make arrangements for a
late check-in if you arrive after hours. Please call the office
for late check-in procedures. Failure to make arrangements for a
late key pick up will result in a $25 charge.
All properties must be vacated by 10:00 a.m.,
SHARP on your departure date. NO EXCEPTIONS! Anyone returning
keys after 10:00 AM will be charged for ½ day’s rent.
Before you leave, read and follow the required check-out instructions.
You were given 2 sets of keys at check-in. Failure to return both
sets will result in a $25 per key charge.
(failure to do the following will result in a $50 charge)
Intracoastal Realty strives to have you return year after year.
Advance tentative reservations will be accepted for the following
year, but cannot be guaranteed. If you want to reserve the same
unit for the same week next year, you must reserve it NO LATER THAN
5:00 PM WEDNESDAY DURING THE FIRST WEEK OF YOUR STAY. These tentative
reservations assume that the homeowner will make the property available.
You must book your next year’s reservation with a $50.00 (plus
tax) non- refundable fee. Please contact the office for further
details. After rates and owner usage are finalized, you
will be mailed a Deposit Request/Lease Agreement for the required
50% advance payment. Tentative reservations are non-binding until
the 50% payment is made.
If you leave something behind, call us and we will make every
effort to locate it and return it to you C.O.D. We will not
be responsible for any items left in the properties. There will
be a $10 service charge to package and mail back any lost and found
items. Any items found in units will be kept in our office for 30
days only; after which time, if still unclaimed, they will be donated
Most properties are equipped with telephones for your convenience.
Local calls are free of charge. Most properties have a block to
prevent direct dialed long distance calls. Please do not abuse this
privilege by charging long distance calls, or dialing directory
assistance to the owner’s phone. Bring your calling card or
long distance credit card number with you. Call home collect or
charge to your home phone. Any telephone charges will be deducted
from your security deposit and will include a $20 per call fee plus
cost of the call. The phone number to the unit appears on your lease.
Please leave this number with friends and family in case of an emergency.
We attempt to call individuals receiving faxes, packages, mail
or phone calls. If you are expecting any correspondence, please
check with the office. (Excessive fax usage may result in a tenant
charge). Please be sure to have your name and your unit name on
anything you might receive. We do not provide delivery service.
Only emergency messages will be delivered.
Any pet found in or around any non-pet unit will result in a $200 fine and could result in immediate eviction and forfeit of all rents paid along with charges for any damages that resulted because of the pet. This rule is checked and strictly enforced and also applies to “visiting” pets. For units that permit pets, there is a limit of 2 pets.
Please keep a key with you at all times to prevent accidental lockouts. During business hours we can provide assistance to you, but after hours an immediate fee of $25 cash will be due for someone to meet you at the office with an extra key. An additional deposit of $25.00 per key will be required. This deposit is refundable upon
return of the key.
