Weekly and monthly rates available upon request.
The base rate of $110/night is for one or two occupants, on a weekday night, and during the off-season (November 1 through February 28). The nightly rate is adjusted upward if there are more than two occupants, if you are staying on a Friday or Saturday night, and your stay is during the peak season from March 1 through October 31. Sunday night rates are treated as weekend rates if that Monday is a holiday. If Monday is a holiday, the previous Sunday night rate is the same as a Saturday night rate. The state of Georgia requires 7% state sales tax is added to the total rent amount, not just the base rate. The upcharge for 1 or 2 additional occupants/guests is $20/night, not per person. The rates for additional occupants/guests are subject to the 7% sales tax. The $60 cleaning fee, and the FlipKey booking fee are not required to be taxed. I will be glad to figure the exact invoice amount when contacted by the traveler with specific details.
