How do I know which properties are available?
The best practice is to start your search for a vacation rental with only properties that are available for your dates of travel. Our system is designed to "Stop Searching and Start Choosing!" Therefore we highly recommend you start with putting in your dates of travel and the number of people traveling with you. The system will provide you now with a list of properties that are available for your dates of travel. If the list of available properties is still too long, we recommend a second useful tip where you start narrowing down the specifics of your vacation accommodation.  
 
How do I choose and book my reservation with JLA? 
Visit the JLA vacation rental page and fill in the START HERE yellow box with your dates, number of people traveling in your party and you can choose the number bedrooms you need. Click the Check Availability button and you will be provided with a list of properties available for your dates. On the left hand side you will notice Advanced Search options and you can check or uncheck boxes, the list will update automatically in real time. Whichever box you check or uncheck, the list will always be properties that are available for your dates that meet the criteria of the advanced search box you have checked. You can now scroll down the list of properties available on your right, then click a picture of a home that's of interest to you. Then the property page will load displaying all details for that particular property chosen. When you're finished reading about that specific property, just click your back button and go back to the list of available properties. If you liked the home you just viewed, there is a Compare box you can check mark on the right hand side of that property listing as you have the list of all properties up on your screen. Click the Compare box. After reviewing the list of homes available, the fastest way to decide between two or three homes you like best is by using the Compare boxes. Make sure the compare boxes are checked for your top 2-3 home preferences, then scroll to the very bottom of the list and you will see a Compare Homes button. Click this Compare Homes button and you will have up to 3 properties listed next to each other to make an easy choice on which property would be your perfect vacation rental match. Once you have chosen your property, you can either click the "Book It Now" button on the property and reserve the vacation rental property online (this will block out that property so another guest cannot book it any longer online, as the home is held for your dates once your reservation is submitted) or you can give us a call at 760-648-1919 and a reservationist will help you make the reservation, whichever you feel most comfortable with. The booking form is described below in detail on what information you will need to complete your reservation.
 
What are my booking options?
 
Are you bringing along the family pet? Please keep in mind that most units do not allow pets. Management companies will typically remove the guest and pet immediately from the home without a refund or compensation if the pet is found on the property without proper notification before the guest's arrival.

If the damage to the unit exceeds $3,000, the guest will be responsible for the balance and the pre-authorized credit card we have on file will be charged. It is the guests' responsibility to report all damages within 24 hours of occurrence in order for the waiver to cover the damage repair. The damage waiver expires 24 hours after departure. Unreported damage is not covered and is the responsibility of the guest.  This Damage Waiver does NOT cover intentional damage,theft, excessive cleaning, or any damage or flea infestation caused by a pet. Please do not hesitate to report an accident as this waiver is in place to protect property but also to encourage guests to work with the property manager.

After departure, the Security Deposit will be returned within 10 days less any costs associated with any damage to real or personal property of the unit. YOU MUST CHOOSE ONE, EITHER DAMAGE WAIVER OR SECURITY DEPOSIT.
