Hurricane Policy: This part of Florida historically has fewer hurricanes than almost anywhere else. However, if a mandatory evacuation order is issue during the rental period that would apply to our section of St. Johns County, we will refund ALL your rental fee for that week; unless order is issued for the day of your planned departure. If your rental period is longer than one week, this would apply only to the week it occurs or subsequent weeks if the house can not be occupied.
