RENTAL POLICIES & PRE-ARRIVAL INFORMATION
(IMPORTANT INFORMATION PLEASE READ)
RESERVING A PROPERTY
Reservations can be completed either by phone or email and upon the completion of reserving one of our units, we will send you an e-mail confirmation including the lease contract. To confirm the reservation, we require the $500 security deposit along with a signed copy of the rental agreement.
Security deposits are due at time of booking. Rental fees including tax (if applicable) & departure cleaning fees are due 60 days prior to arrival. For any reservations made within 60 days prior to arrival, the full payment is required.
In most properties at Rancho Las Palmas, we require a three night minimum stay. However, major holiday periods may require longer stay requirements. Most of the Mission Hills Country Club properties require stays of a month or longer.
In the event a reservation must be cancelled, the following restrictions apply:
(a) If notice is received 60 days prior to arrival, payment of rents and/or deposits will be refunded.
(b) If cancellation occurs within 60 days of arrival, any refund is subject to the ability for us to re-rent the property.
Pets are allowed only if you have contractually made prior arrangements. Please contact us if you are interested in renting a pet friendly property. There is an additional refundable security deposit of $200 required for guests bringing their pets. Guests bringing their pets may have the fees for carpet & upholstery cleaning deducted from their security deposit.
All properties are fully furnished and equipped with linens and kitchen wares.
All “Reservation Deposits” automatically become “Security Damage Deposits” upon occupancy of the rental unit. Said deposits are held in addition to the rental monies collected prior to check-in. Any additional charges or damages incurred will be deducted from the deposit and the balance refunded up to 21 days after the departure date.
