Villa Rental Rates
"Yes Lets do it again. We had so much fun last year. I'll get the exact dates asap. Thanks again - Al"
Villa accommodations include 2 twin beds in each of two upstairs lofts, 2 twin beds in each of two downstairs bedroom areas, as well as a fold-down double futon couch in the living room area of each of the two bedroom units. The bedroom units are connected by a kitchen-dining-living area that includes another fold-down futon couch and dresser. Twin bed pairs can be consolidated into single kings if requested.
Amenities include gas cooking and refrigeration (7.3 cu.' Servel), 12 volt DC lighting, as well as CD and DVD players. Limited solar electrical generation precludes air conditioning and heat, however fine screening with tent netting over huge and numerous window openings, combined with generous eaves and porch roofs, allow most windows to be open most all the time. The Southeast exposure, accompanied by deep porch shade and roof vents at the apex of the gable ends, allows heat to escape, even in breezeless conditions.
Fairly protected dockage (see breakwall) for smaller boats (up to 25 or 30') drawing under 2.5 feet (tilt up power required) is provided free of charge for 2 vessels, with villa rental. Because of the proximity of the villa to the dock golf cart rental is not required.
VILLA RATES *
We may be able to book your stay on very short notice but there is a risk of prior commitments. Rather than crossing the stream you can always fly into Treasure Cay and rent a boat from Ronald Russell.
Rates are subject to change without notice except for reservations already booked which are locked in.
Our villa rates for the 2017 season are $180 per night, for occupancy of 4 persons or less.
+ plus $20 per person for 5 or more. Children under 7 years of age don't need to be counted.
+ plus a $300 fee per stay (to cover fuel and labor expenses of folks coming from Abaco to prepare the villa for you).
Villa rental includes complementary shallow, small boat dockage, entirely at the boat owners risk.
There is no need for a golf cart rental - required at some resorts - because of the villa's proximity to the dock.
On a 7 night basis for 2 couples this adds up to a modest $780 per couple per week, or $112 per night per couple.
For 4 fishermen splitting it 4 ways, it comes to a measly $390 each PER WEEK - that's $56 per night each, INCLUDING dockage. All in all a pretty good bargain for the Abacos.
Villa rental rates are subject to change without notice, but increases will not apply to previously booked parties.
Responsible representative(s) of guests, must be at least 26 years of age to book our villa, and must accompany occupant(s). A copy or fax of driver's license and vessel registration of responsible party(s) must be provided at the time of booking.
The PDF agreement at the following link must be signed by a representative of each family that plans to stay in the villa.
Any deposit received that does not include a copy of the RENTAL AGREEMENT will be returned to the booking party.
Please don't let the content of this page, or booking, concern you unnecessarily. Our guests usually have so much fun, that most of them return, year after year.
PAYMENT - Payment in full must be received at the time reservations are made. Check or money order will be acceptable 30 days in advance of rental dates, or PayPal may be used if you are booking your dates closer to your arrival than that. If you reserve your dates more than 60 days prior to your anticipated arrival, a deposit of 50% of the value of your stay may be sent, to reserve your dates. You will then be responsible for sending the remaining 50% at least 30 days prior to the date of your arrival.
On-the-spot bookings, if the villa happens to be available, may be paid in cash or by credit card or traveler's checks, payable to Ronald Russell at Foxtown Shell.
CHECK-IN CHECK-OUT - Check-in time is after 2:00pm and check-out time, including dock privileges, is prior to 11:00am.
SUBLEASING/RENTING is strictly prohibited, and will result in forfeiture of payments previously made, and reservations being cancelled, without refund. Renting party must accompany group.
THINGS HAPPEN - While we will do everything in our power to make sure that the villa is ready for your appointed stay, we have been confronted with challenges in the past such as hurricane damage, and other complications inherent in the operation of, and systems serving, such a remote location.
It is possible that for reasons within, or outside of our control such as hurricane damage or system breakdown, your accommodations could be compromised for your booked dates. In such an event, we will contact you regarding the nature of such compromise, and discuss options with you. While we have not had to make such a contact to date, all interested parties are hereby notified, and agree, that Moraine Cay Villas and Club, LLC will not be held liable for any circumstances that may arise, that compromise your stay on Moraine Cay, that are within, or outside of, our control.
Should we be unable to accommodate you on Moraine Cay because of such unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to exchange your booked rooms on Moraine for two rooms, with queen size bed downstairs and twin bed in an upstairs loft, at Millie's Guest House located on the waterfront in Foxtown, just 9 miles away. Since our rates at Moraine Cay are based on two couples, should you need more than two rooms at Millie's Guest House, you will be responsible for paying for any additional rooms you require, on your own. Moving to Millie's Guest House in Foxtown may also be required, in the event of system failures that may arise while guests are staying on Moraine Cay, though we have not found it necessary to move any guests, for any reason whatsoever, as of the date you are reading this.
IN THE EVENT OF DAMAGE to the villa by inconsiderate or malicious guests, Bahamian government authorities will be notified. This could result detention and/or deportation, and blacklisting from future entry into the Bahamas, for the offending parties.
