Cancellation Policy: Reservations require a 30-day cancellation notice prior to the scheduled day of arrival for daily & weekly stays. Deposits are non-refundable. Changes to reservations outside the specified 30-day cancellation period that result in a reduced value of the reservation, downgrade of unit size, or a reduction in the number of nights will result in a $75 transfer fee. These changes may not be made within 30 days of arrival. Balance paid is forfeited for all cancellations made within the 30-day period. Any refund requests for reservations including travel insurance are directed towards our travel insurance provider, Red Skye. Reservations not including travel insurance are completely non-refundable.

Limited Damage Protection: The Limited Damage Protection is a $40.00 fee added to the reservation total. It covers the registered guest against any accidental damages to the unit or its contents for an amount not to exceed $2,000.00, when reported immediately. This fee eliminates the necessity for the traditional security deposits. This gives our guests a complete and total peace of mind by knowing “When accidents do happen…You are covered!” Please report any damage to the unit as soon as it occurs so that we may be able to assess and/or minimize the extent of the damages. The Limited Damage Protection is ONLY valid if the incident is reported PRIOR TO CHECK OUT. It will become void upon departure. If it is determined that the damage was not caused by accident and was the result of inappropriate action resulting in negligence, the guest is then responsible for all damages.

Requests and Unit Availability: Sterling Resorts will make every effort to honor requests such as; specific floors, unit numbers, and bedding types. However, such requests CANNOT BE GUARANTEED. If the assigned unit is unavailable substitutions will be as similar to that of the original accommodations, including size of unit and property location, where possible. Sterling Resorts reserves the right to change unit assignments without notice. No refunds or reservation discounts will be given due to changes in location of unit, size of bedding, and furnishings.
