Site Policy and Procedures

Prospective Renters: You assume all liability for use of any information you find on Stayatourplace.com. Stayatourplace.com assumes no responsibility and in no way warrant the accuracy of the information contained in any of the pages published here. Not all of the property listings found on Stayatourplace.com are created directly by the property owners, some listings are marketed by agents or property managers for the owners. You are responsible for conducting your own investigation regarding any property information found in individual property listings sent in by prospective renters or vacation property owners or agents. You assume all liability for use of any information you find on Stayatourplace.com. In simple terms - do your homework. Don't rely on just our listings to form your opinion of a property or it's management. Contact the owner/agent directly and get more information.

Renters are aware that each property sets its own Refund/Cancellation Policies. Stayatourplace.com recommends that renters ask for and receive a written notice of the Refund/Cancellation policy from the advertiser and for added protection, we recommend the purchase of Trip Cancellation Insurance at your own expense. Stayatourplace.com is not responsible for the refund of rental fees for any reason.

None of the information contained on Stayatourplace.com is confirmed or warranted by any party. Again, confirmation of information published herein is the sole responsibility of the renting party. Protect yourself when dealing with anyone you don't personally know. Qualification of all renters is the sole responsibility of the property owner or agent.
Some suggestions:
  • Ask for referrals from previous renters. Property owners/managers should be able to provide some qualified references from past guests. Always ask for more than one reference.
  • Before you send any money to an owner or providing a credit card number, always request and receive a completed rental agreement or contract. Be sure that it specifies the cost of the rental, the dates you will be staying in the property, any deposits, taxes, cleaning fees, and the cancellation and refund policies. Without a signed rental agreement do not consider the rental to be yours. If you do and something unforeseen happens, you may have little recourse in getting your funds returned. It is suggested that you do not work with owners/agents who do not provide a contract/agreement.
  • Your best protection is to stay with property owners that accept credit cards. There are certain protections that the banks put in place that make credit card use favorable. Using your credit card does provide you with certain remedies that are not via other forms of payment. Paying by PayPal, or through other eCommerce software, may not provide you the same same level of protection that paying directly via credit card provides.

Property Owners: Qualification of all renters is the sole responsibility of the property owner or agent.If Stayatourplace.com is unable, at any time, to provide the promised level of service for any reason, including, but not limited to service outages, war, acts of God or negligence, neither Stayatourplace.com or its owners can be held liable for any costs beyond the prorated costs paid by the client for the services which were not provided. Stayatourplace.com does not guarantee that the Stayatourplace.com website will be available 100% of the time. Property owners are responsible for investigating and adhering to all local regulations including, but not limited to, permits, licenses, occupancy taxes, and safety compliance.
Membership Cancellation: Stayatourplace.com listings run on an annual basis. Due to the fact that the vast majority of the work involved in promoting vacation properties on the Internet occurs in the first few weeks (the creatation of the ad), Stayatourplace does not offer refunds, in full or part for listings created and paid for.
