Vacation Rental Policies
We offer Special Rates during the months of November through May on participating houses. These specials do not apply from June – October or during holiday weeks. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years have four night minimums. Please ask for information when you place your reservation.
At the time you make your reservation, ½ of all rental charges are charged to your credit card. Rental rates are subject to a 10% Marin County Tax. The second ½ of the rent is due 30 days prior to arrival. Failure to make timely payments will result in a $25 late payment fee and/or cancellation of your reservation. We accept Visa and MasterCard.
A Security Deposit will NOT be charged at the time of placing the reservation. A $50 Damage Waiver fee is charged to your credit card at the time you place your reservation. This waiver relieves you of costs for all unintentional and incidental damage to the rental property and its contents up to $1000. This damage must be reported to the DBPM office prior to check out in order for the Damage Waiver to be in effect. The Damage Waiver does NOT cover intentional damage, plumbing stoppages and/or extra cleaning.
PETS - A charge of $100.00 for having a non-registered pet or a pet in a non-pet friendly home is in addition to the damage waiver.
Should you find it necessary to cancel your reservation before 30 days of arrival; a $75.00 cancellation fee will be charged to your credit card. The $35 processing fee is non-refundable (totaling $110.00) Cancellations less than 30 days prior to scheduled date of arrival will be given a refund only if the home is re-rented. Payments for bookings are refundable only to the extent we are able to secure a replacement booking. If the property does not re-rent, you are responsible for the total rent of the house including all fees, taxes, and rent. Changes in rental dates or homes can be done for a $25 fee. Refunds: Conditions beyond our control like; weather, road conditions, power outage, TV outage, hot tub problems or guest emergencies do not constitute a basis for refunds.
Dillon Beach Property Management reserves the right to substitute comparable accommodations, without notice or liability, should the home be out of order or unavailable. When comparable accommodations are not available, guest will have the option of selecting from available properties at the published rate or receiving a full refund.
You are expected to care for the home during your stay. This includes performing the required cleaning described in your information packet. Should the home require extra cleaning or unreported damages are found, you hereby authorize Dillon Beach Property Management to charge your credit card for these costs.

You will receive a written confirmation of the terms and restrictions of your rental home in the Rental Agreement. Accepting this confirmation obligates you to adhere to these terms, including maximum occupancy for the property. IF THE RULES ARE NOT FOLLOWED YOU MAY BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE RENTAL PROPERTY PREMISES WITH NO MONITARY REFUND. The Terms and Conditions, Credit Card Authorization, Rental Agreement and Cleaning Instructions must be signed and faxed or mailed back as soon as you receive them in order to complete your reservation. The Rental Agreement describes bed sizes and features of the home to assist you in planning your stay.
If your home has a hot tub, your use is at your own risk. Rinse off sand before entering the hot tub. Do not use any body oils or scented additives in the water and never sit on the hot tub cover ($400+ to replace the cover). NEVER leave children unattended in hot tub and observe all precautions regarding use of drugs and/or alcohol. Hot water is unsafe for pregnant women. In the event the water is found contaminated in any way after your departure, your credit card will be charged to cover the cost of draining and cleaning the hot tub. All efforts are made to ensure hot tubs are in good working order at all times. Due to our remote location and the difficulty in securing parts in a timely manner, we cannot guarantee the function of a hot tub. No monetary adjustment will be made for its failure.
