TAX INFO: Reservations that include winter and summer dates, will be taxed on the departure date rate.

Reservations and services, such as fishing and tours, that are for multiple people, will be charged according to how they are billed and paid; If all billed on one invoice and paid with a credit card or cards in ONE person's name will be taxed as invoiced. If paid with credit cards or billed in more than one person, each person will be invoiced and taxed according to Sitka City and Borough statues.
RESERVATION: On stays less than 30 days, a 35% deposit is required to reserve your dates, unless; your arrival date is within 60 days, in which case the full amount is due, or, your reservation total is $500 or less, in which case, the full amount will be charged.
EXTENDED STAY RESERVATIONS: (stays over 30 days): Payment for your first 30 days is required at time of booking to reserve a home for extended stay. Unless otherwise approved, a credit card is required for the reservation and extended stay reservations will be auto charged on the first of the month.
Unless otherwise agreed upon in writing, Extended stay reservations must be paid in full 30 days before arrival and 30 days before each consecutive stay. Stays 30 days or longer are exempt from city sales and bed tax.
IMPORTANT: We offer discounts on extended-stay that are only valid if your stay is over 30 days. In the event of cancellation that shortens stay to less than 30 days, your invoice will be changed to reflect the higher day rate and sales and bed tax will be added. If renting extended stay, with an open departure, 30 days notice is required that will go into effect on the 1st of the month after notice is received.
PAYMENT: Your lodging is guaranteed your entire stay, even if your arrival is delayed, you are still responsible for your accommodations.
CANCELLATION: You may cancel your reservation up to 72 hours after booking with no cancellation charge. After 72 hours, stays cancelled 60 days or greater before arrival, will incur a 10% cancellation or change fee on the full reservation amount. There are no refunds for stays canceled 60 days or less prior to arrival, unless it can be rerented, in which case the 10% cancellation/change fee still applies. If only a portion of your days are re-rented,you will only be refunded for the days that were rented, minus 10%.
INSURANCE: The premium for Travel Guard Vacation Rental Insurance is available at time of booking. Vacation Rental Insurance reimburses for covered pre-paid non-refundable expenses due to certain unforeseeable circumstances that may cause you to cancel, interrupt or delay your trip. Please review our cancellation policy on our website. Please consider purchasing this to protect your investment. This is particularly important in Sitka reservations as reservations can be made as far as a year ahead, leaving room for many things to happen in your life. Also, weather can be very variable in Sitka, even in the summer, causing delayed arrivals.
SECURITY DEPOSIT: In lieu of a security deposit, we offer an Accidental Damage Protection Plan through Travel Guard that covers unintentional damages to the rental unit interior that occur during your stay, provided they are disclosed to management prior to check-out. The policy will pay a maximum benefit of $3,000. Any damages that exceed $3,000 will be charged to the credit card on file. If, during your stay at one of our Rental Properties, an Insured Person causes any damage to real or personal property of the unit as a result of inadvertent acts or omissions, the insurer will reimburse the insured for the cost of repair or replacement of such property up to a maximum benefit of $3,000. Certain terms and conditions apply. Full details of the Accidental Damage Protection Plan coverage are contained in the Certificate of Insurance or Insurance Policy. The Accidental Damage Protection Plan can be purchased up to, and including at, check-in. If you choose NOT to purchase this policy, damages will be charged to your credit card.
GETTING TO YOUR RENTAL: Transportation is not provided. You can rent a car, hire a taxi, or take the airport or ferry shuttle that also charges a fee. If you are concerned about finding your way, for a fee of $50, we will be happy to meet you at the airport or ferry and escort you to your rental.
WHAT'S INCLUDED: Each of our homes are individual and have a unique character of its own, so you should check your home's description to see what is included. Most homes do include all furnishings, dishes, bed and bath linens.
CLEANING: If renting a home, a cleaning fee may be added to your invoice that covers your move-out cleaning. If there is not a cleaning fee, you are responsible for leaving the rental in as near arrival condition as possible.
You are required to pay for EXCESSIVE cleaning beyond what is normal for the home you are renting. Excessive cleaning is cleaning that costs more than what you were charged, or what would be considered normal cleaning, based on previous year's cleaning.
Re: Homes: At the end of stay, you are expected to clean your own dishes and empty the trash and pick up all trash that is a result of your stay. General cleaning will be done by our cleaning staff, which include: all beds will be stripped, sprayed/disinfected and replaced with clean linen. All used towels, rugs, and such will be washed and replaced. Bath rooms, kitchen, floors will be disinfected, wiped and cleaned by owner or staff. Anything beyond this will be billed at $35 per hour to your credit card. Cleaning is not normally provided during your stay, but it can be arranged at $35 per hour.
CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION: As part of this agreement, we require that you authorize Creative Connections to charge any damages or excessive cleaning that may be caused by you or your guests, not covered by either your deposit, or your Security Deposit Waiver to your credit card.
I promise to always treat you ethically and give you an opportunity to respond prior to charging your card.
PETS: Select Homes, Only With Prior Approval: Failure to clean up the yard after your pet WILL result in a cleaning fee of no less than $25, but may be more depending on the cleanup. Any damage caused by your pet will be charged to your card on file.
