Our online Owner Portal provides easy, one-stop access to the most updated documents, including:

In addition to the base rental rates, guests pay the cleaning fees and taxes.
With every reservation fee, guests receive the Southern Peace of Mind protection plan, providing damage waiver coverage of up to $2,000 for reported accidental damage.
We also offer optional travel insurance protection through a third party.
*Some additional fees may apply.
Another competitive advantage that entices vacationers to book with Southern over another vacation rental company is the Southern Perks program, featuring free amenities and discounted rates from local attractions and restaurants. There is NO COST to Southern owners for this program.
