Frequently Asked Questions
Fees -- what fees, if any, are you
paying when you rent "Bella Vista" from us?
We charge for rent, our cost for cleaning, and the
required taxes.* There are no hidden
fees or other expenses.
We have owned Bella Vista as a personal vacation home and
made it available for vacation rental since 1994, providing over
1000 multi-day guest rentals during these years. In addition to featuring our home on this
"acviews.com" website (the name stands for Affordable Comfort
and VIEWS), we have listed it with Airbnb. We will
respond to inquiries made via "acviews.com" with an independent
quote and handle the subsequent booking and manage the rental
details ourselves. We do not charge a fee for these
services. We use PayPal as primary means for our guests to
pay with their credit cards, following our guests' agreement to
our no-nonsense rental conditions. In most cases we even
absorb the fees charged to us by PayPal for their
services. However, if guests make a reservation via
Airbnb, they will be charged a service fee by Airbnb which will
go directly to them.
The upshot is that we offer our guests avoidance of
substantial third-party service and booking fees by
encouraging booking directly
through us, without extra fees.
* Eff. 1/1/2919 we are adding a 3.5% TSRA-STR
Fee which is payable to the Sea Ranch Association and will
be waived if the renter is a member of TSRA.
