The home was beautiful and very well furnished. Great location to be close to everything. Even had a chance to see a couple of Manatees in the canal at the rear of the house.

The pictures don’t do it justice
Jessica B - Texas USA
August 2021 - Still Waters SW Cape
This house is beautiful and the location is perfect! The pictures don’t do it justice. My husband and I stayed here with 4 teenage baseball players and it was perfectly sized. We were even able to work while we were there in the home office. The pool and back patio were really nice to have, and being able to fish the canal behind the house was fun. Of all the houses I’ve rented in the past, this one was the most perfectly appointed. It had everything we needed for a week’s stay and more! I would stay here over and over again!

Terms and Conditions

1: Contract

The hiring contract is between Secret Places and the party leader or third party agent who must sign a booking form accepting the booking conditions on behalf of all persons named on the booking form including any names substituted or amended on the form by written agreement.

A contract exists when the required deposit has been paid and Secret Places have acknowledged the same by issue of a booking confirmation. The renter understands and consents to the use of the credit card details provided on the registration form or booking form without original signature, serving in place of an original signature and that the credit card authorisation cannot be revoked and will not terminate until 60 days after the rental property is vacated.

The contract is subject to United States Law and the exclusive jurisdiction of the U.S. Courts.

2: Confirmation

On receipt of the required deposit payment and the signed booking form a confirmation will be issued. Accommodation is reserved only for the persons named on the booking form. Any alterations, substitutions or additions to these details must be notified and agreed in advance of the commencement of the rental in writing. A charge may be levied for this service if notification is less than eight weeks before the rental commencement date. Bookings may not be assigned to another party except by express agreement with Secret Places in writing.

Once a confirmation has been issued the hirer is responsible for the total price of the property rental as shown on the confirmation. Signing of the booking form constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions by the client.

3: Balance of Payment

The balance of payment will be required in full before the hire is due to commence. This date will be communicated in writing to the hirer on their confirmation.

4: Price guarantee

All prices are subject to change without notice and may be subject to currency fluctuations. Rentals paid for in full at the time of booking will not be subject to any increase (Note: a surcharge may be applicable if state or local taxes are increased). Payment by credit card will incur an administration charge - credit card with a non-US or Canadian billing address may incur higher administration charges.

5: Cancellation and/or date change

If the hirer wishes to cancel the booking this must be done in writing by email and a confirmation of the instruction received back from Secret Places. Cancellation will only become effective from the date that written notification is received and acknowledged by Secret Places. No refunds are available for early departure or no shows.

Change of date (if available) will be subject to an administration charge.

On arrival at the property the managing agent will require a security deposit. This security deposit may be made in the form of a credit card imprint (VISA or MASTERCARD only)
Refusal to provide a security deposit may result in access to the property being denied or delayed.

* Property damage, staining and / or breakages

Secret Places reserve the right to substitute alternative accommodation in the event of unforeseen circumstances which may render the original property unsuitable for rental, this may include if a property has been sold or is no longer participating in our rental program.

14: General Provisions

The following general provisions respecting the property should be noted:

Although we love animals all our properties are designated as "non pet friendly" by their homeowners. Any guests ignoring this rule may be asked to leave.

Where pool heating is provided by solar energy water temperature is determined by the ambient air temperature. Therefore no guarantee with respect to pool water temperature is possible or implied.

Swimming Pools are cleaned and serviced weekly. No responsibility can be accepted for dust, dirt or other incursion entering the pool water between cleans.

Cable and/or Internet TV is provided - the service level has been chosen by the homeowner. No refund shall be given for outages, lack of content, or personal preferences with regard to cable TV or Internet TV service.

High-speed wireless internet is provided as a convenience only and is not an integral part of the property rental contract. No refund will be given for outages, lack of content, speed, access problems or lack of streaming preferences with regard to the internet service.

The property is subject to regular insecticide treatment and as far as possible is screened against insect incursion. These treatments may leave some dead insects inside the property and this shall not be taken as a sign of any infestation.

For the benefit of all of our guests the property is designated as NON SMOKING and hirers should note that any contravention of this injunction will render them liable to excess cleaning charges associated with ridding the property of smoke, ash and odours that may have permeated the furnishings.

The rental property is situated in a mixed residential area and guests are therefore requested and expected to behave appropriately by avoiding noise or nuisance to other residents. Under State and Local laws nude or topless sunbathing is not permitted.

Mandatory evacuation - If state or local authorities order a mandatory evacuation of any area that Secret Places offers properties, due to a hurricane evacuation or other natural catastrophe, no refund of any monies paid will be available, nor will a stay be allowed at a later date. Secret Places strongly recommends trip interruption insurance.

15: Compensation

Any claim for compensation, including for "loss of enjoyment" must be reported whilst the clients are still in occupation. No claims will be entertained unless reported directly whilst the clients are still in occupation and good evidence exists that the managing agent have been given reasonable opportunity to rectify any issue giving rise to complaint.

The managing agent will endeavour to help guests with any problems they may encounter, however clients must be aware that the owners are not representatives or agents of any third party, including their tour operator and car hire company, and cannot be held responsible for any aspects of their vacation not directly related to the property rental.

In any claim for compensation the liability of the owner/agent shall not exceed the total amount paid by the hirer for the rental of the property.

Once your booking is confirmed, all agreements of the rental policy are in force. You understand that by booking your selected property you have agreed to follow the outlined terms and conditions above.
