Final Payment

Final payment on your vacation rental, including damage waiver fee and taxes, is due in our office no later than 30 days prior to your arrival date. Personal checks cannot be accepted within 30 days of your arrival.

Cancellation

In the event of a cancellation, you are responsible for payment of the full rental amount. If Coldwell Banker is able to re-rent the property for the duration of your lease, your payment will be refunded less a re-rental fee of 15% of the total rental amount.

Check-In

Check-in time for your vacation rental is between 2:00PM and 5:00PM. If you know or think you'll be arriving late, please call us in advance to make arrangements. We cannot give out keys before 2:00PM. Call us immediately to report any problems in your vacation home.

Cleaning

Our goal is to have each property cleaned prior to your check-in at 2:00PM. On rare occasions, our cleaning companies need more time and it may be necessary to allow them access after 2:00PM.

Parking On The Street

Parking permits are required for parking on public streets in the towns of Rehoboth and Dewey Beach EXCEPT in areas with parking meters. PARKING PERMITS ARE NOT VALID IN METERED PARKING SPACES.

Rehoboth Beach parking permits may often be purchased at our Rehoboth Beach office and various locations throughout town. Dewey Beach permits may be purchased at the Dewey Beach Town Hall located at 105 Rodney Street.

Some property owners provide parking permits in addition to off-street parking or where off-street parking is not available. Ask your rental agent for details.

Parking is prohibited on the ocean block of St. Lawrence, Queen and Prospect Streets in South Rehoboth from 11:00PM to 6:00AM daily. If you are staying on these streets, please move your vehicle.
