Do you Allow Pets?

We do not have “pet friendly” rental properties. Our condos are located in complexes that are governed by HOA rules.

What if I Have to Cancel My Reservation?

Southern Hospitality Vacation Rentals understands that unforeseen circumstances do arise. However, this is not a hotel, but a small, family owned vacation rental business and we cannot easily re-book lost income from cancellations, as do large hotels. Once you have reserved the condo, it is taken off the availability calendar and all inquiries for that period are turned away. As a result, all payments made will be follow our cancellation schedule detailed in your rental contract. If you need further information, please contact us.
