It is highly suggested you purchase Trip insurance, either from your preferred agent, or Welcome Home Vacations.

TRIP INSURANCE: Welcome Home Vacations offers travel insurance through Royal Adventure Travel Protection, underwritten by Jubilee at Lloyd's, which will protect your vacation investment against unexpected events that might cause you to cancel your trip. These events might be an illness, injury or death to you, a traveling companion or a family member of anyone in the traveling party, Hurricanes & natural disasters, a job termination, or 20+ additional covered reasons." "Also, if you might have anyone in your party who may have a pre-existing medical condition, it is important to buy the travel insurance now, at time of booking, so that pre-existing conditions are covered fully under the policy". This is particularly important in Sitka reservations as they may be made as far as a year ahead, leaving room for many things to happen in your life. Also, weather can be very variable in Sitka, even in the summer, causing delayed arrivals.

HOUSEKEEPING: While linens and bath towels are included in the unit, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate. Mid-Stay cleaning is available, however, at a rate of $35 per hour. Please call the office to arrange. Some owners may at their discretion include or require a weekly or monthly cleaning to prevent buildup and protect the rental.
