Rental Policies & House Rules


When you are ready to secure your reservation, we'll send you a Rental Agreement for you to sign and return to us. We'll also ask that you make a $500 down payment to secure your dates.

Payments are made securely online with Visa or MasterCard.

$500 down payment is due to secure your reservation.
50% of the remaining cost of your stay is due 60 days prior to your arrival (or within 7 days of making your reservation if made fewer than 60 days in advance).
The remaining balance is due on or before 30 days prior to your arrival.

For last minute reservations made within 30 days of your arrival, your balance must be paid in full.
For reservations made within 60 days of your arrival, payment MAY NOT BE MADE BY E-CHECK. All payments must be cleared by the time of your stay.

Guests will be responsible for the fully reserved date(s) regardless of late arrival or early departure.

Guests are responsible for any damages and/or excess cleaning, other than normal wear and tear, as a result of their occupancy. San Diego Dreamin’ reserves the right to charge the renter for any damages or excess cleaning necessary, as permitted by state statute.


All cancellation monies are based on the nightly rental cost, cleaning fee, pool heating fee, plus the city tax. Your security deposit will be refunded regardless of cancellation schedule (minus 3% for credit card fees).

No matter what your vacation activities consist of while at the house (having a few drinks, playing in the pool, etc.), just please make sure to respect our home and our belongings while doing so.

DO NOT STAND ON THE HOT TUB COVER. The hot tub cover is for insulation purposes and is not designed to support a person or persons. It will break and you may be charged for replacement. Remember when not using the hot tub, leave cover on so hot tub will stay warm. DO NOT PUT SOAP OR ANYTHING IN THE HOT TUB TO MAKE BUBBLES.
