Units are decorated to match the tastes of the individual owners. All units are air-conditioned and heated, have Cable TV, a refrigerator and a dishwasher. Kitchens are furnished with dishes and silverware. No food, food seasoning, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, or paper products are provided. More detailed information concerning the particular unit is available from the Edgewater management. NO PETS ARE ALLOWED IN ANY RENTAL UNIT.
To confirm your reservation, you must remit advance rent payment of 50% rent + the vacation rental damage protection premium + a $75 Administrative Processing Fee. You will have 15 days to return a signed copy of your lease or your reservation will automatically be cancelled without further notice. Your final payment is due thirty days prior to arrival. This payment includes the balance of rent plus the Optional Travel Cancellation Insurance premium (if selected) and all applicable taxes. Payment may be made in the form of money order, certified or cashier's check, or personal check (personal checks cannot be accepted less than 30 days prior to arrival date). Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express) payments are also accepted. All reservations made less than 30 days prior to the arrival date must be paid in full within 3 business days.
All cancellations must be in writing; an e-mail is acceptable. All monies paid, less a cancellation fee of $100 plus any non-refundable fees, will be refunded ONLY if the unit is re-rented for the same rate and time. Every effort will be made to re-rent the unit. If the unit is not re-rented, you will not receive a refund, regardless of the reason for cancellation. A travel cancellation protection plan is available and highly recommended.
Switching Dates and/or Units
To avoid a $100 penalty, all changes to a different unit and/or rental week must be made a minimum of 60 days prior to check-in.
Instead of tying up several hundred dollars in a cash security deposit, we offer vacation rental damage protection. This plan will protect you in the event of accidental loss or damage to the rental property that is not a result of negligence or willful conduct by you or others in your party up to $3,000 total. The plan does not negate your responsibilities as a tenant. You must notify our office in writing of any damage or loss during your occupancy and receive a written copy of your report prior to your checkout or this coverage is void. Terms of this coverage will be mailed to you with your reservation confirmation. The cost is $55.
Reservation Hold Fee
After spending your vacation with us, we invite you to reserve the unit of your choice for next year. You will be given the opportunity to make an advance reservation for the following year for any available Edgewater rental unit. The non-refundable reservation hold fee is $100, and will be subtracted from the 50% rent payment due in January. The advance reservation is subject to: 1) the owner's return of the property to the rental program for the week(s) the tenant wishes to reserve, and 2) no previous reservation hold fee being placed on the unit for the same week(s). If an owner does not make your week(s), available, we will assist you by suggesting a comparable unit.
The following linens will be delivered to your unit on arrival day: 6 towels, 6 hand towels, 6 wash cloths, 2 bath mats, sheets for all the beds and pillowcases. Beds are not made. Linen exchange is not provided.
Linens are not provided during the off season or for monthly rentals.
Tenants are expected to keep the unit clean during their stay. All rubbish is to be disposed of via the trash chute on each floor. No sand is to be brought into the unit on bodies or on clothes. Sand can easily stop up drains in the bathrooms. Tenants are expected to leave the unit clean. Upon checkout, any dirty dishes are to be placed in the dishwasher and dishwasher turned on. The unit is professionally cleaned after each tenant. The cleaning fee is included in the rates for the weekly rentals. Monthly rentals of less than 90 days will be assessed a $120 cleaning fee. Rentals of 90 days or more will be assessed a $50 per month mini cleaning fee and a $120 final cleaning fee for the end of the stay.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express as well as Money Orders, Cashiers Checks and Bank Checks at any time. We accept personal checks 30 days prior to arrival.
Units are available for check-in between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Saturdays. IN NO CASES WILL TENANTS BE GIVEN ACCESS TO EDGEWATER PROPERTY OR THE RENTAL UNIT PRIOR TO 4:00 p.m. If for any reason you anticipate arriving after 8:00 p.m. , please notify the office during regular business hours and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.
Check-out time is 11: a.m. on Saturday. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
All units have a shared house phone that is used to contact other units and to remotely open the lobby door after hours (press 99 when you are called from the phone at the lobby door). There are a very few outside lines attached to this internal phone system. Most Owners provide a separate outside telephone for tenant use. No long distance service is provided on either of these phones. You may use a calling card or a credit card to make long distance calls on either of these phone systems. THE EDGEWATER MANAGEMENT DOES NOT TAKE MESSAGES FOR OWNERS OR TENANTS.
FREE high-speed Internet access is available in all units. Get your access code when you check-in.
The Edgewater is located on the Boardwalk with a major beach access point just outside. A public hydrant for washing sand off your feet and a fountain are adjacent to the beach entry/exit. Additionally, the Edgewater has a shower just under the building and at the pool. Please do not walk through the newly landscaped areas in front of the Edgewater.
Owners have made every effort to do all repairs prior to the season, but occasionally it becomes necessary for us to enter the unit during reasonable hours to perform routine maintenance.
Items Left in Unit
Neither the Edgewater management nor the unit owners are responsible for items left in rental units. We will hold any items left for 30 days after which we will dispose of them. Items of value will be donated to charity. If contacted, we will mail items found in units to the tenant at tenant's expense.
Damage to Units
The tenant is responsible for any damage that they, or parties visiting them, do to the Edgewater building or the interior of a unit. The tenant will be response for any repair costs.
On rare occasions, a rental unit may become unavailable or uninhabitable. On such occasions, Edgewater Condominiums reserves the right to move you to a different unit. Every effort will be made to place you in a comparable unit; however, the availability or comparability of other units cannot be guaranteed.
No grills of any kind are allowed on Edgewater property.
Drying Clothes and Towels
No clothes or towels are to be hung on the outside railings of the buildings.
Feeding the Birds
Do not feed the birds from the balconies. When birds fly after food they leave deposits on the windows. The windows must be cleaned by a professional window cleaner suspended from the roof of the building and is only done a few times a year.
Luggage Baskets and Carts
Luggage carts will be returned to their proper secured location outside the building entrance immediately upon unloading, so they are available for the use of other occupants
