A ninety (90) day notice is required for cancellation and refund of the 10% payment and will incur an $89 cancellation fee.  Cancellations made less than ninety (90) days prior to the arrival date are subject to a 20% cancellation fee of the reservation amount. Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay, that are made within 60 days of the arrival date, forfeit the full payments made. For reservations that consist of 2 units or an 8-14 night rental, a 120-day notice of cancellation is required prior to arrival date or a 20% cancellation fee of the rental rate will occur. For large groups, part of a group or family reunions that consist of 3 units, a 6-month notice is required or a 20% cancellation fee applies to all units reserved. For groups booking 4 or more units, or reservations longer than 14 days, 50% of the rental total is due at the time of booking and is refundable with a cancellation fee of $89 per unit up until one year from the check in date.  Within one year, all four units are non-refundable. 


Cancellation or early departure does not warrant any refund of rent. Once inside the 90-day period, modifying the reservation dates does not negate the cancellation fee it would be subject to.  

We also recommend purchasing travel insurance separately by selecting “RENTAL GUARDIAN” insurance on our booking page or through this link: https://fariaresorts.rentalguardian.com/ if there is any concern that you will not make your reservation. Trip Insurance is only refundable 10 days after purchasing, otherwise it’s non-refundable even when making a claim. 

We require 10% of the rental total to be paid at the time of booking to secure the reservation. This is a credit to the rental total and not a damage deposit. 90 days before your arrival, 40% of the rental total is due. The remaining 50% of the rental total is due 30 days prior to your arrival date. For 2 units, 50% of the rental total is due 120 prior to your arrival date. For 3 units, 50% of the rental total is due 6 months prior to your arrival date.  For groups booking 4 or more units, or reservations longer than 14 days, 50% of the rental total is due at the time of booking and is refundable until one year from the check in date.  If you choose trip insurance, 100% of the cost of the insurance is due at the time of booking. Trip-insurance is non-refundable.

If you do need to cancel, all cancellations must be done via email. Cancellation must be from the reservation holder’s email to verify the cancellation. Please note our cancellation policy before you send the email.
