As of February 1, 2021, Prince Edward County implemented a 4% Municipal Accommodation Tax. This tax is charged on the accommodation portion of all short-term, roofed accommodation reservations in Prince Edward County (e.g., motels, hotels, inns, B&Bs, vacation rentals, etc.)
Some properties may charge a cleaning fee and/or a pet fee (if it is a pet-friendly property.)
The damage deposit is provided to Sandbanks Vacations via credit card preauthorization at the time of booking. In some cases, we will require the refundable damage deposit to be paid upfront. Fourteen (14) days after you check out, the damage deposit can no longer be processed and expires. This gives us time to resolve any claims to the satisfaction of all parties. If damage or a violation has been identified, we will notify the Renter within 72 hours, although this may take longer if your check-out falls on a Friday or Saturday. Property owner teams check properties after guest check-out and before new check-in, but sometimes it takes a few days for notifications to reach us.
If you have overnight guests, this needs to be shown on your rental agreement. If it is a last-minute decision, you MUST contact Sandbanks Vacations to confirm you are allowed.
As of 2020, there are new Prince Edward County short-term accommodation (STA) bylaws, and exceeding property maximums could result in fines or extra charges. Please note the maximum occupancy guidelines in each property listing and ask if you have any questions.
Many cottages offer a fire pit, but not all. Before starting an outdoor fire, The County requires you to call the Permit Department to notify them of each fire planned. You will need to ensure there is no “burn ban” on, and this information should be relayed when you call the Permit office. Often you will find the permit in the guest guidebook at the property or on the fridge. You will be asked to provide the permit number and fire route address (usually the 911 address).
For those who wish to bring a fire pit, you must okay this with us, and the Owner must arrange a fire permit with the Permit Department before your stay.
Please use care when building a fire. Never leave the fire unattended and have several buckets of water on hand before building a fire.
Renters may be charged additional costs if the property is left in an unreasonable condition or damage is found.
This information can be found in your Welcome Package email (emailed out approximately four (4) weeks prior to your arrival). Please make sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contact list so that essential communications do not filter into your Junk/Spam Mailbox.
If you have questions or concerns, we encourage you to contact the “Owner Contact” in your Welcome Package. If they have not responded within a couple of hours, you may contact Sandbanks Vacations. Our emergency number can be found in the Welcome Package email for after-hours emergencies when the Property Owner cannot be reached or in case of emergency.
Where properties are pet-free, we respectfully ask that no guests bring pets even for a short visit as Owners can be highly allergic.
