RESERVE

First, tap the calendar to view the dock’s availability. If the dock is not availabile, dates will be crossed out. Choose your selected dates and make a reservation. Don’t worry – this only places a hold on your credit card! You won’t be charged until later (and for multi-month bookings, you’ll only be charged a month at a time).

If you have specific questions about the dock before booking, tap the blue “contact host” button on the listing page.

CONNECT

Once you’re verified, you will receive a confirmation email with the dock’s exact address and the host’s direct contact information so you can firm up your arrival arrangements.

At this time, you are free to visit the dock in advance of your booking to make sure it’s a good fit. You may arrange a dock preview within 14 days after the booking was approved, or up until the day before your booking starts (whichever comes first). If it’s not a good fit for any reason, let us know – the hold on your card will be dropped and you won’t be charged a dime.

PAYMENT

Your card will be charged 14 days after your initial reservation request, or on the first day of the booking, whichever comes first. For long-term, multi-month bookings, you’ll only be charged for the first month in the beginning. After that, you’ll be charged on a monthly basis until the end of the booking.
