Travel Insurance is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for all reservations.


In the event the unit becomes unavailable or uninhabitable due to naturally occurring events or entities, severe weather conditions, hurricanes and mandatory evacuations, any deposits and pre-paid rent will not be refundable. It is highly recommended the renter purchase travel/trip cancellation insurance to cover financial losses from cancellations. Purchasing trip insurance covers you from losses you may incur due to unforeseen circumstances, such as unexpected health issues, death, inclement weather, or jury duty. Trip insurance is offered at a cost of around 7% of your total rental cost. We recommend that you purchase this insurance as we are not flexible on our cancellation policy. Please refer specific questions to 1-866-999-4018 and use product code "Midnight" The Company is called CSA Travel Protection and their website is:

Check-out time is at 10:00AM on the scheduled date of departure.


Parking on the property is very limited. Each unit is only guaranteed 1 assigned parking space. Additional parking is only available on a first come, first served basis and only IF additional space is available. Due to the limited parking space on the property, no more than 2 parking passes can be issued per unit, but this is only when or if space is available. Please plan accordingly when making your travel arrangements. If additional parking is not available, visitors will be required to park off the property.

At any given time of the year there may be property enhancements and/or maintenance projects in progress on the property. This is typically more common between mid-August to mid-December however, some items may need to be addressed at other times of the year and without advanced notice. These are usually scheduled by the Buildings & Grounds Committee as well as owners remodeling their condos. We attempt to schedule these and post notice well ahead of time, but some may be last minute projects based on necessity and/or availability. Please ask a rental agent when reserving if your unit or building may be affected, as we will try our best to accommodate your needs by finding you a unit that may be not at all or less likely to be affected by a project.

Thank you for your understanding,

Midnight Cove Management
