Feliz Stays Vacation Rental Policies and Procedures

FELIZ Stays takes great pride in our vacation rental properties and works hard to ensure a safe, clean, and fun vacation experience for all of our guests! Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding the below policies.

Easy Reservation Process

Submit a booking request online or by phone.
We’ll review the booking request to ensure it fits our policies and guidelines.
Your reservation will be confirmed once we’ve accepted the booking request and your payment have been successfully processed.


We are using only credit cards and debit cards for payment. (Visa, MasterCard, Amex and Discover). Full amount is charged at the time the reservation has been confirmed.

Security Deposit

There is a refundable deposit on all properties. You will be charged a pre-authorization charge on the credit card used for your reservation the day prior to guest arrival. This charge will be released three days after checkout pending provided there were no identified damages or other issues.

If for any reason a security deposit has not been added to the reservation, you are still liable for any damages at our property.

Rental Fees

We have no hidden fees! The reservation total consists of the nightly rate, cleaning fee, and all requisite city and state taxes. We strongly recommend Travel Insurance but this is optional. 

Leaseholder Responsibilities

The leaseholder is responsible for payment, deposits, damage to property and all responsibilities spelled out herein.  The leaseholder’s email address will be used for all notices and correspondence.  The leaseholder must be present at the property during the dates of occupancy.

You are binding yourself to the property during the dates booked once your booking is confirmed and you have entered into our rental contract.  There should be no expectation of compensation or relocation because you are not happy with the property for whatever reason. 

We will make every effort to correct impactful issues or problems encountered during your stay, but refunds should not be expected.

FELIZ Stays reserves the right to cancel a confirmed reservation (with good reason) at any time prior to the leaseholder taking occupancy of the property.  If this should occur, FELIZ Stays will refund the full reservation amount to the payment method on file. 

Cancellations and Refunds

Strict Cancellation Policy: Guests who cancel at least 60 days or more before check-in date will get back 100% of the amount they’ve paid. If they cancel less than 60 days before check in date, they will not get a refund.


Once we’ve confirmed your reservation, any cancellations, date changes or property switches will invoke our cancellation policy.

We understand, things happen!  Unforeseen circumstances such as sudden illness, job loss, deaths or hurricanes do occur.  This is why we highly encourage all guests to purchase Travel Insurance to help protect the investment made on your vacation. This insurance is optional, but we strongly recommend it so if you experience a tragedy such as these listed above, you may be reimbursed.
