Finding Your Vacation Rental: The majority of our tenants start and finish their vacation rental search on the internet. As a result, we have focused on creating a website that helps to streamline your search. You will find that our rental page is easy to navigate, with up to the minute rental information and availability including photos, amenities, and a map of the location. Once you find your vacation rental, please call our direct line 609-967-0320 or toll free 1-877-524-6337 and one of our rental team members will be happy to book your rental. If you have the time, we would enjoy saying hello and helping you to preview any rental properties before you make your decision. Our office is open year-round except for the major holidays. Our hours are 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday, and 10 am to 4 pm on Sundays. Once you have decided which rentals to preview, call us with your choices and we will have property sheets and rentals keys waiting for your arrival.
Weekly, Seasonal or Half Season Rentals: The majority of our vacation rentals run from Saturday to Saturday with a check-in time of 1:00 pm and a check out time of 10:00 am. We do have a few Friday and Sunday check-in properties whose check-in and check-out times vary. In addition to weekly rentals, we have a selection of Seasonal rentals. Our full season rentals generally run from Memorial Day through Labor Day. If you are only looking to enjoy a partial season we have half season rentals that run mid-May to mid-July and mid-July to Labor Day weekend. Full season and half season rentals include a security deposit, end of season cleaning and carpet cleaning fees and also require tenants to put the utilities in their name for the duration of the lease term. Security Deposits: We are pleased to offer Vacation Rental Damage Protection (VRDP) to our weekly and multi week tenants. This $40 flat rate insurance offers you unintentional property damage protection up to $1,500 during your stay. VRDP is not available on full season and half season rentals.
Checking into your rental: Please stop in our office to pick up your rentals keys and check-in package at the designated check-in time on your lease. If you’ve picked up keys before you know that 1:00 to 1:30 on check-in day can be a busy time in our office. Delaying your key pick up until 1:30 can save you time spent waiting in line. We realize how important your vacation is and we promise to do everything we can to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. At times issues will arise that are beyond our control. Please know that we will do everything we can to remediate these issues. In your check-in packet is a Property Condition Sheet. This sheet is very important and should be completed and returned to our office the day you check-in or the following day. By completing and returning this sheet, you will be letting us and the owner know of any defects at the property. If, upon your arrival, you encounter a problem that needs immediate attention, please do not hesitate to call our office.
The majority of our rental properties will have a rental book or an information sheet in the property. The book will most likely be in the kitchen. If it’s not in the kitchen it will be in some other common area of the home. Typical information in the rental book or posting will be information regarding trash and recycling pick up, internet access (if applicable), local business information and community activities/events.
Beach Tags: The majority of our owners do not provide beach tags. Before you purchase beach tags check into your rental and see if any beach tags have been left by an owner or a previous tenant. Avalon beach tags can be used in Stone Harbor and Stone Harbor tags can be used in Avalon. Beach tags are required for anyone 12 and older.
Linens and Towels: The majority of our rentals do not include linens and towels. You are responsible for supplying your sheets, bath towels and beach towels. Owners provide pillows and a bed spread or comforter for each bed. There are several linen rental and concierge services on the island and we would be happy to send you their contact information.
