MyOceanRental strives to ensure peace and quiet for all of our guests, neighbors, and community of Folly Beach. This means we follow guidelines to ensure you have a peaceful, safe and memorable stay with us. Due to Folly Beach's strict noise ordinance we have been forced to place noise sensors in our properties. NoiseAware is a smart home device that measures decibel levels throughout the property and allows us to respond to noise nuisances without disrupting your stay. NoiseAware is 100% privacy compliant and is required on this property. These do not listen or record, they only detect noise levels. If the noise level exceeds the legal limit for FB, you will receive a friendly reminder text message to turn the noise down. This will help avoid any violations with the FB police that can result in a $500 fine as well as result in major penalties for the homeowner.  

The Folly Beach NOISE ORDINANCE is from 10 pm to 8 am. Each property is listed with the maximum occupancy for the home (number the house sleeps). House parties, weddings, functions, events, bands, DJ’s, mobile units, campers and RVs are prohibited (you can park a camper or RV if that is your transportation, but you cannot stay in them). Please remember to be kind and courteous to your neighbors. Use of premises shall not disturb or offend surrounding residents. If the occupancy is misrepresented or a disturbance is reported at the property, we reserve the right to terminate your rental agreement and will require that you vacate the property immediately, without refund. If you have any questions, please ask. We are committed to your comfort so please let us know if we can do anything during your stay to make it more enjoyable.

If you booked your reservation through Airbnb, VRBO, Booking.com or any other third party booking agent, your reservation is subject to their cancellation policy.

Contract for Lease terms are solely between the Owner and Tenant. Tenant fully understands this is a relationship only between Owner and Tenant. MyOceanRental is not responsible for unsatisfied Tenants and will not provide for moving or switching Tenants to additional properties. Cancellations can be made with a full refund less a 5% penalty if requested at least 14 days prior to your arrival date. For all other cases, cancellations made after the reservation payment is made will result in the forfeit of all applied monies, unless the property is re-rented and confirmed at the same rate for the canceled dates. Should the property be re-rented at a lower rate, the monies refunded will be subtracted from the difference in the rate. MyOceanRental LLC will monitor that time slot and refund all monies to original guests upon the re-booking. There will be a 5% change/cancel reservation fee charged in such circumstances. In the event the unit is not re-rented for the same period, there will be no refund. Refunds are inclusive of rents, deposits, taxes and fees. Insured renters' cancellation claims are processed independent of the Owner. Changing a reservation in any way (dates, accommodations, etc.) is considered a cancellation and the same terms and conditions apply. Refunds are not given for inclement weather, including hurricane evacuation. Travel insurance, which may cover this and other possibilities, is available for a fee and noted below.
To protect against cancellations caused by certain unforeseen events, such as illness, death, natural disasters, etc., we recommend that guests purchase trip cancellation and Interruption Protection insurance to assure refund of deposits paid and reimbursement of other vacation payments. Such insurance is available through travel agents, auto clubs such as AAA, or online at http://www.rentalguardian.com/ or http://www.generalitravelinsurance.com/

If a catastrophe (hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood, etc.) or any situation simply beyond our control impairs the vacation rental, MyOceanRental LLC is not responsible for finding alternate lodging for the renter or for the renter's financial losses related to transportation or alternate lodging. There will be NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR EMERGENCY EVACUATIONS. Therefore, we suggest you consider Travel Protection Insurance to secure your vacation investment and eliminate your financial risk. There will be no refunds of any kind for evacuations.
