Departure Policy


When departing, please leave premises in clean condition and comply with the following. Note we are firm on the 11am checkout time unless other arrangements were made.

All food removed from refrigerator and cabinets.  

Sink clear/dishes loaded into dishwasher (turn on) run on normal cycle.

Please take all trash, including bathroom trash bags, out to the trash cans to the Green Poly Cart

  Beds stripped and linens/towels placed in in laundry room. 

Please lock all doors and close all windows.

Place the keys back inside the lockbox

Please notify us of any items to be replaced, including propane.

Last thing — look around….did you pack everything?*

*Look around before you go!  Did you get your DVDs out of the player?  Phone chargers? Beats speakers? Medicine in bathroom drawers?  Clothing out of the drawers/dryer? Fencing sticks in the corner? Special soccer ball from grandma? Your favorite jeans, ball caps, Ninja blender…the list goes on and on – all of these items and more have been left behind. 

Due to the increasing number of requests to ship forgotten items, we have implemented a $25 handling fee plus postage/materials for left behind items. We need to compensate our property manager for her time and expense to pack the items and make the trip to the post office. We agree this is not a bargain but it is a real hassle to deal with leave-behinds. The easiest thing is to just take everything with you!

If you choose, we’d also appreciate an entry in our guestbook. We love to hear from all our past guests.  

Thank you for booking at Sun Catcher Properties. We look forward to seeing you in the Bayou Beauties.
