You can browse our site for current availability and rates (under each property details page). Once you have found the property you would like to stay at, either call us toll free at 1-800-641-1406, or fill out the property reservation form (located on each property details page). We will need your name, billing information, phone numbers, email address and the number of adults and children traveling with you. An emergency contact number is suggested as well.
A deposit (or payment in full for reservations made with-in 50 days prior to arrival) and signed lease agreement will be required at the time of booking. We currently accept VISA, MC, AMEX and Discover credit cards. You can also arrange to overnight a personal check or make a bank to bank wire transfer. After your reservation has been processed, you will receive an email with your reservation number, welcome letter, invoice (reflecting each payment) as well as the terms and conditions of your specific vacation rental.
During the summer months, we have a full-time concierge, our Director of Fun, to assist you with any needs you may have during your stay. Prior to your arrival, our concierge will email you to help schedule any advanced reservations you may need, such as dinner reservations, baby sitters, grocery shopping or bike rentals. You may also contact us anytime prior to your arrival. The Guest Services Desk is staffed from May 15 - October 2.
Only one discount offer, or package deal can be applied to a single reservation unless otherwise specified.
Your vacation rental will be available for check-in at 3:00 p.m. An early check-in can be coordinated for an additional fee in certain circumstances. If the property has a check-out the day of your arrival we will not be able to coordinate an early check-in because our housekeeping staff will not have enough time to prepare the house for your arrival. Check-out time is 10:00 a.m. A vacation home requires more time to clean than a hotel room, so please help us prepare for our next guest by being on time.
During the summer season, our Reservations call center is open Monday - Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and on from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. Off season hours vary. Our Guest Services Desk (May - October only) is open Monday - Saturday from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM and on Sundays from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM. If you need to check in after hours, or on Sunday, a staff member will be available to check you in. Our Property Care staff are available 24 Hours for emergency maintenance issues.
Yes, travel insurance may be purchased through us anytime before your final payment at an additional 6.95% of your reservation total, however the earlier you purchase the insurance, the more benefits you will have. For more information on travel insurance through CSA, please click here. We offer a 10 day free look, during which time you may opt out for any reason for a full refund. Please note that while travel insurance is optional, our property protection insurance is required for every reservation.
In addition to our published rates, each reservation will be charged a $50.00 booking fee, used to cover administrative processing costs associated with the reservation, and a $60.00 Property Damage Insurance fee, which is a damage waiver that will cover up to $3,000.00 for accidental or inadvertent damage. As of January 1, 2019 the sate of MA has implemented a 5.7% state tax on bookings that are less than 32 days. Currently we do not have any local taxes, however that is being reviewed and may change.
Please be advised that a valid credit card will still be required at check-in cover any additional charges made during the guest's stay. ** Any intentional damage or gross negligence will result in additional costs charged to the guest's credit card, as well as any damages beyond the covered $3,000.00 insurance policy and for fines due to improper recycling or extensive departure cleaning.
If you need to change your reservation (date changes or accommodation changes) there will be a $20.00 service fee applied to the account. No changes can be made within 30 days prior to arrival. In the event of cancellation, and the accommodation is re-rented for the rental period at the same rate, all payments will be refunded, less a 25% cancellation fee. In the event the accommodation cannot be re-rented for the rental period, the guest is responsible for the full rental amount, or the difference if the accommodation is rented at a lesser rate. No refunds will be given until the property is re-rented. Ask a Nantucket Retreats` reservations agent about travel insurance which will cover cancellations in certain conditions.
Every reservation includes a certain number of hours towards your departure clean (house specific - under terms & conditions/lease agreement). You can help to ensure we are able to stay within those hours by helping with certain tasks, such as emptying out your refrigerator and taking out the trash, starting the dishwasher and if possible start a load of towels in the washing machine. You will receive a detailed set of departure instructions the day before your departure. You will also receive detailed recycling instructions when you arrive. Recycling is mandatory on Nantucket and will result in large fines charged to your credit card if the instructions are not followed properly. Guest Services is available for any questions! Check out is by 10:00 AM.
