Secure Ordering Through PayPal
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to theirs when you make payment using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to PayPal, their server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once your information reaches PayPal, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the Internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.
You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by email, or by posting notices on this site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Information We Collect
A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and is stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies help us to analyze web page flow, measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety. 'Cookies' are files placed on your hard drive that will assist us in providing our services. Cookies can also help us provide information that is targeted to your interests. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on the Site.
To open a PayPal account, users must provide name, address, phone number and email address. In order to make payments through Pay Pal, you must provide a credit card, debit card, or bank account information; bank account information is required to make payments totaling more than $1,000. Two security questions are also posed to PayPal users to protect you against credit card and checking account fraud, and to contact you should the need arise to administer your account.
In using PayPal on our Site, PayPal verifies financial information with third parties in order to protect all of its customers. In the course of such verification, PayPal receives personally identifiable information about you from such services. In particular, if you register a credit card or debit card with PayPal, PayPal will use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to PayPal, and that the card has not been reported as lost or stolen.
All personal information provided to PayPal can be reviewed and accessed by their users at any time by logging into your account on the PayPal website, and changing your preferences in the Profile page of the 'My Account' tab. You can also close your PayPal account at anytime. For more details on your PayPal account, please visit their website at www.paypal.com .
Google Adwords Information
There are two types of ratings for Vacation Rental Pros properties: ratings from Guest Reviews from our customers and Property Style Ratings from our own property specialists.
Guest Reviews are comments from real people who vacationed in the property. Word-of-mouth recommendations are always valuable, often giving you a better idea of what to expect in a particular property than all the photos and descriptions can. However, the 1- to 5-star rating system is inevitably subjective. A budget traveler who found the perfect no-nonsense, no-frills condo and had a fabulous vacation may give it 5 stars, while a guest seeking the ultimate in luxury may lower his grade of a beachfront mansion because the kitchen lacked a special utensil. While we pay close attention to our guest reviews and believe that they are all valid, we like to supplement them with a second type of valuation: the Property Style Rating.
Property Style Ratings is a more standardized assessment of the quality of a property's decor and building materials. It does not take into account the location of the property (beach front, ocean view, or garden view) or its special amenities. Instead, it evaluates the value and condition of the property itself, from windows and doors to couches and beds. Therefore, the Property Style Rating cannot always be correlated to the rental fee.
Just as in hotels, a guest can expect the furnishings in a Silver, or 2-Sun, property to be less luxurious than those in a Diamond, or 4-Sun, property. Some people feel most relaxed in a comfortable, unpretentious environment – particularly at the beach! Others want to surround themselves with the very best, including the latest electronics and brand-new furnishings. Whatever your preference, Property Style Ratings are one way to help you find the vacation property just right for you.
Our "4-Sun" Quality Ratings are OBJECTIVE. Our team of professional Property Evaluators has developed clear definitions of the style, quality, and ambiance you can expect in each of our properties as defined in our 4-Suns Quality Ratings levels, below.
If your taste and lifestyle draw you to the very finest properties, choose our 4-Sun properties. If solid value is your goal, a 3-Sun property may suit you well. If you're looking for low price (or VERY low price), choose a 1 or 2-Sun rental property.
|Quality Rating||Extraordinary||Above Average||Good||Low||Poor|

Best choice for
Our Bronze Properties are modest but affordable. These properties are humble by today's standards. Most were built decades ago and have not been significantly updated since — they're like those you may have vacationed in as a child. They're older and less well appointed than those with higher ratings. They're comfortable but furniture, flooring, and especially exteriors show many years of wear and tear. Kitchens and bath(s) are older and dated. Style and décor vary greatly and much of the property and amenities have been well used. Yet vacationers who value savings over style choose our Bronze Properties because they get great access to all Florida has to offer at a bargain price.

No Sun Rating
Our Copper Properties are dilapidated. These properties may be in an excellent or even exceptional location but are dilapidated (in a severe state of disrepair) and are only suited for guests with a sense of adventure. Most were built decades ago and have not been updated since. Vacationers who value savings, and in some cases, an exceptional location over style and have a good sense of humor choose our Copper Properties because they get great access to all Florida has to offer at a bargain price. Please have everyone in your party read this clause and make sure they understand this is a Copper property. If you want a higher rate property, please call us back and we are happy to move you to a more updated property.
Regardless of Property Style Rating, all VRP rental properties contain the following, absolutely free:
*** A few properties may have wifi in a common area, and some have access to laundry facilities instead of an in-house washer and dryer. Full amenity details for each property are available on each property page.
