Terms & Conditions


Around the Sea Inc. statement on Cleaning Protocols & Covid-19

We are a family-run business which practices extreme caution and safety protocols. We live on the second floor of Canada's Rotating House, take standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously, and have taken steps to ensure the safety of our guests and cleaning staff. We have been closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization statements regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).


Our accommodation's health and safety measures are designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19, and include everything from hand washing hygiene and cleaning product specifications to guest suite cleaning procedures.


Each of our four rotating condos is self-contained with separate ventilation and has its own, private 50' deck. Our backyard is spacious & enables families to enjoy with a vast amount of distance between one another.

Cleaning Products and Protocols

Guest Rooms: We use cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean suites after guests depart and before the next guest arrives
Back of House: In the spaces where we work "behind the scenes," we are increasing the frequency of cleaning.
We are a family and we want you to know that regarding cleanliness & safety we treat "our" house and every space in it as if we live there too...because we do. :)

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations made prior to one month from your check-in date are fully refundable.  Unfortunately, we are a small business and lost bookings represent a loss to us and a missed opportunity for others, so cancellations made within one month of your check-in date are NON-REFUNDABLE, BUT ONLY IF WE CANNOT RE-RENT YOUR STAY DATES.

Because of the non-refundable nature of our bookings, it is recommended that all guests get trip cancellation insurance to help cover the cost of a cancellation due to pandemics, inclement weather, flight problems, or any other reason.
