About All Star Vacation Homes

Is the home, town home or condo I see on the Internet the one I get?

Yes, unlike most vacation rental companies, we rent the specific property you see in full detail on our website. We believe that this is the best way to ensure you will be happy with your accommodations.

Is this a timeshare offer?

We are not in any way affiliated with timeshares. The homes, town homes and condos are owned by individual investors and we manage them on their behalf. You are never required to sit through a presentation. However, if you are interested in owning a vacation home, we would be happy to sit down with you, and discuss it further.

How long has All Star been in business?

All Star Vacation Homes was established in 1998. We are members in good standing with the Better Business Bureau; local, state and national vacation rental managers’ associations; chambers of commerce and other tourism groups.

Is All Star licensed?

Yes, we are licensed in Florida as a lodging provider and each home is licensed by the state to be rented as a short term rental property. In other states where licensing isn’t required, All Star has obtained the recommended and required permitting and documentation to manage and rent vacation homes.

    Do you offer group rates and planning?

    Yes, All Star’s vacation homes are popular for reunions, weddings, corporate retreats, sports teams and other groups and special events. If the nightly rate is broken down per person, it is often more affordable than staying in a hotel, plus you’ll enjoy upscale amenities with all the comforts of home. Our Reservations Team can work with you to accommodate any of your group’s needs and create your ideal getaway. Please indicate the type of group and how many people you will need to accommodate when calling. Ask us about our Memory Making Ideas and event planning services!

    When is check-in & check out time?

    Check-in time is after 4 p.m. Since we want to ensure everything is in good working order to make your stay enjoyable, please note that you will have access to your property at that time. Upon request, an early check-in of 9 a.m. may be arranged based on availability. An additional fee of half the nightly rate will apply to receive an early check-in to guarantee availability.

    Again, to ensure that everything is pleasant and enjoyable for those arriving after your departure, we ask that you please depart the property before the indicated time for your destination on the date of your check out.

    What is the Property Protection Fee?

    There is a Property Protection and Administrative Fee for each reservation. The Property Protection Fee is a damage waiver that will cover accidental or inadvertent damages. The value of damage waived for accidental or inadvertent damages is based on the property size and location. Please be advised that intentional damage or gross negligence will result in additional costs. Refer to the complete terms & conditions outlined on the website for the home you are considering for more information. The Administrative Fee covers our administrative costs for the reservation. If you make a change to your reservation, there will be an additional non-refundable fee ($20), which will be charged at the time of the change. No changes can be made within 60 days of your arrival.

    What is your change/cancellation policy?

    If you change your reservation, there is a $20 non-refundable fee for any change. No changes can be made within 60 days of your arrival.

    Cancellations must be confirmed in writing. The 20% rental reservation deposit is non-refundable and cancellations made within 60 days or less of arrival will result in loss of all monies, and any claims must be arranged with the travel insurance company, if a policy was purchased. Any reservation that has been cancelled and reinstated is subject to a $50 reinstatement fee to be charged at time of reinstatement.
