BOOKS + WINE VINEYARD + THE BEACH = PERFECTION
BOOKING YOUR VACATION AT THE PELEE ISLAND BOOK HOUSE
There is a 2-night minimum stay during the months of May/ June and September/ October, although weekly rentals are available. Only weekly rentals will be accepted during July and August. Rental weeks run Monday to Sunday. A booking deposit of 20% of your rental invoice plus a security deposit and a signed contract is required to hold your reservation. The balance of your rental invoice is due 30 days before your arrival. Your security deposit will be returned 7-10 days after your rental ends and the property has been cleared of any damage. In addition, if the trash and/ or recyclables are not removed (as per your signed contract), then your security deposit less $50 will be returned. A calendar with open booking dates can be found below. Or go here: www.cottagesincanada.com/peleeislandbookhouse.
Once you have checked if your desired vacation dates are available, please send a message through the contact form. You will then need to download the Rental Request and fill out the dates and your personal information. Send to the email provided. Cancellation Policy: If we are able to rebook the time you reserved, we are happy to return your money (less a $40 administration fee.) We request a cancellation notice sixty days prior to your vacation. Alternatively, your deposit can be used for a future rental.
Your booking is not complete until a signed short term rental agreement is received and the deposit has been accepted. Please make note of the contract rules: maximum occupancy of 12, no excessive noise past 10pm, garbage and recycling must be brought to the transfer station, the dishes washed and the floors swept. Please be aware that we are on septic and water conservation is a must. Do not flush anything other than waste and toilet paper. The septic and weeping bed are in front of the porch. Please do NOT park there. You may park to the side of the bunkie. There is a maximum of four cars allowed. The empty lot beside us is owned by someone else. Please be respectful. Do NOT drive or park on the empty side lot.
