How To Book The House
1 – GET A QUOTE
If you have your dates simply fill out the Booking Form
If you don’t know your dates Send an Inquiry at the same location
2 – BOOK YOUR VACATION
Once you have the quote simply sign the Renter Agreement and make a deposit.
When you open the quote link you will see all the details, dates, and prices. At the bottom of the form you will see
“Looks Good! Finish Booking”
You enter your information then click
“Continue to Renter Agreement”
Review the agreement and sign

3 – PAYMENT
If you avoid using a credit card and pay by Personal Check or Wire you save the 3% fee
You can also pay by Visa or MC – A 3% service charge will apply
Once your payment is received at our bank your reservation is complete and your dates are secure. We do not block off any dates until all three steps are complete.
4 – SECURITY DEPOSIT
After booking you will receive a request for a credit card. This is used to place a “HOLD” on funds in case there is any damage. The hold is automatically released a few days after your departure date. No actual charges will be made as long as there are no damages or ancillary expenses. This is identical to the way a hotel will request a credit card upon checkin.
5 – Who will run the house?
This is a big house. With a large group, it is important to have someone in charge. You, the guest signing the lease, can personally take all of the responsibility for the rental and guest questions during your stay. After all, it is your security deposit. You may not want to take on this responsibility directly. Some tenants choose to delegate this to one or more of their guests. We call this person the “House Captain”. The chief responsibility of the House Captain is to read the House Manual and assist fellow guests during their visit. Although I would encourage everyone to read it is impractical to expect all guests, especially children, to read the manual. The House Captain becomes the responsible person in charge of the crew. The House Captain (or Captains) should also be knowledgeable of technical matters for internet, stereo, and thermostat questions among others. All you need to do to include people in the Captain’s role is share their email and I will CC them on all correspondence.
We recommend that you save the manual onto your iPad or phone for easy access. To do this open the document in Safari or Chrome. Choose the Square Icon with the arrow going up. Select the Glasses Icon to add to Reading List. You will then have a copy of the manual you can access by clicking on the book and selecting the Glasses Search Icon.
From time to time I will send all our tenants email blasts with important information in order to not have to do individual emails. Make sure you view any newsletter from the captainmorsehouse.com and please set your spam filters to accept our emails. Please forward any pertinent information to your House Captain.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
