Reservations made 60 days or less prior to arrival may be cancelled through the following day after making the reservation (before the end of hours of operation, Eastern Time) with no cancellation fee or Usage Restriction. After this grace period passes, cancellations and modifications to the reservation – including changes to the arrival or departure date or to Villa type (other than releasing one side of the lockoff for reservations confirmed during the Home Resort Reservation Period) — will incur cancellation fees.
