​​​​​​Vacation Rental Damage Protection:
As a part of your stay, you will have to purchase a Vacation Rental Damage Protection plan designed to cover unintentional damages to the rental unit interior that occur during your stay, provided they are disclosed to Management before checkout. The cost is $70 for $3,000. Any damages that exceed these policy amounts or are not covered under the plan 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 policy limit as stated above. Certain terms and conditions apply. Full details of the Vacation Rental Damage coverage are contained in the Description of Coverage or Insurance Policy here; https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/review?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:b9cc6b10-d334-4878-9a4c-f5d9d5969e81
