Q: What is your cancellation policy?

A: CANCELLATION POLICY: Cancellations must be verbalized in the form of an email. If we are able to re-rent the property for that period of time for the same amount, all monies less 20% cancellation fee on total rent and less administrative fee, will be refundable. Any refunds due will be processed by check or credit card 30 days after satisfactory subject rental period is over. If unable to fill the reservation, monies paid will be forfeited. We do not guarantee that we will be able to rent the accommodation for what was originally paid. All re-rentals are at our discretion. Durkin Cottage Realty highly recommends customers purchase Travel Insurance, which may be done at the time of reservation or through other insurance company after reservation is made.
