YOUR PERSONAL RESORT Terms and Conditions


Your Personal Resort endeavors to present premium properties and customer service to our guests. These terms and conditions are intended to clearly communicate what we will provide, the rules of our property, and the requirements we make of our guests. These help us to ensure our property remains clean, safe, and fully functional so you, and the guests who follow you, will have an awesome vacation at Your Personal Resort.

It is very important that you read and understand this entire agreement. Payment of the deposit or for the vacation rental also indicates your acceptance of the terms and conditions, but payment does not replace the signature requirement.

Initial notice by phone is acceptable, but follow-up in writing is required; email from the address associated with the reservation is acceptable as written notice.

If we can re-rent the property, we will refund any payments less a 10% cancellation fee and less any re-rent price deficiency. A price deficiency can result if, for example, we are unable to re-rent for the full time period or if the daily rental rate had to be discounted to fill the property.
