Travel Insurance:We strongly believe in covering your investment and for your convenience we have Travel Insurance available at an additional 7% to the total cost of your reservation.

Pets of any kind are forbidden, unless the property allows pets and tenant has paid additional pet fees. Violation of this rule will result in cancellation of the reservation, eviction without notice and forfeiture of all rental monies. All homes are NON-SMOKING; the decks are designated smoking areas. Please dispose of cigarette butts properly; this does not mean leaving them in the yard or on decks or porches.

Tenant agrees to indemnify and hold Gary Greene Vacation Rentals, the property owners, employees and agents free and harmless from any liabilities for personal injury or damage or loss of property that is made, incurred or sustained by Tenant or guest of Tenant.
You should not expect compensation or relocation because you do not like the property or a particular amenity is not operating to your satisfaction. We do not operate in the same way that a hotel does, therefore we cannot relocate you without proper approval from the homeowner. We will make every effort to ensure that the property is to your satisfaction and we will take corrective action for any problems encountered in a timely manner, but no refunds should be expected.
All of our properties are patrolled by off-duty uniformed Galveston police officers. We have a zero tolerance policy for any renters ignoring neighborhood rules, such as excessive noise and occupancy/parking violations. Violating any rules are grounds for eviction and forfeiture of monies paid.
Included with your rental will be a guest pass to the Galveston Country Club for access to a swimming pool, tennis courts, golf course and restaurant. Normal club fees will apply.
