*Snowbird Special: Playa del Rio is happy to announce our Fall & Winter 2017-2018 Special Snowbird Rate of $700 per month (FHU – all utilities included in rate) for guests who stay a minimum of a two (2) month stay during December 2017, January 2018, and February 2018 (Regular monthly rate during this season is $800 / month for single-month reservations). Winter special rates that include the discounted rate for December, January and February are for the calendar months (rental is from the first day of the month thru the end of the month no matter what your arrival date is). Additionally, those who stay during January and February that wish to extend for March, April and May will be given a special discounted rate, based on availability, ($100 discount off normal monthly rate of $950) during this season for their extended stay up to the end of March for those extending for March, up to the Thursday before Mullet Toss Weekend for those extending for April, and up to the Thursday before Memorial Day Weekend for those extending for May (the Regular monthly rate during these months is $950 / month exclusive of black-out rate increased rate changes). Playa del Rio appreciates our winter guests and Snowbirds, as we appreciate all of our guests and Playa friends, and we look forward to seeing you this winter season and seeing you back for years to come! To get these special off-season discounted rates from December thru February and the special extended in-season discounted rates during March, April and May, mention that you saw it on the website [Discount Code: Snowbird2018]! Our busy in-season times are March 1st through May 21st; our busiest peak-season times are May 21st through August 15th; and our slower off-season times are August 16th through February 28th (with the exception of any holidays, special events, and black-out dates that may be in these months). The biggest special event of the year for the Playa del Rio and the Perdido Key area is the annual Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival on the Island. Enjoy some of the best entertainment in the country along with some of the best weather of the year during the Annual Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival Events and Playa del Rio House Parties and Concert Series in November [our November monthly rate is $950, and we have very limited availability so booking out a year in advance is recommended].
Deposits & Additional Service Fees: A non-refundable, pre-payment deposit is required at time of booking, which will guarantee all reservations. No reservation will be made without a Deposit accompanied with an on-line Reservation Request Form. Playa del Rio RV Resort “Off-Season” rentals are from August 16th thru February 28th; our “In-Season” rentals are from March 1st thru May 21st; and our “Peak Season” rentals are from May 21st to August 15th. For one, two and three night “off-season” stays, the deposit is payment in full (rent plus tax); for 4-7 night and weekly stays during the “off-season”, the deposit is $200 / week; and for monthly stays during the “off-season”, the deposit is $300 for single-month reservations or $200/month for a reservation that is for two months or longer (unless there are black-out dates in the month which will increase the deposit amount). For one, two and three night “in-season” stays, the deposit is payment in full (rent plus tax); for 4-7 night and weekly stays during the “in-season”, the deposit is $200 / week; and for monthly stays during the “in-season”, the deposit is $300 / month (unless there are black-out dates in the month which will increase the deposit amount). For one, two and three night stays during the “Peak Season”, the deposit is payment in full (rent plus tax); for 4-7 night and weekly stays during the “Peak Season”, the deposit is $300 / week; and for monthly stays during the “Peak Season”, the deposit is $500 / month. Whenever there are black-out dates in a month, this can increase the deposit amount due. Anytime a deposit is made for one week plus one day, the deposit will be the applicable weekly deposit plus an additional $100. Whenever a reservation is extended by a guest after the original reservation has been made and the reservation deposit has been paid, when an additional deposit is required to guarantee the reservation, the credit card on file used for the original reservation deposit will be charged the applicable additional deposit charge on the date of the reservation change. For Holidays and Special Events when minimum stay requirements apply (known as Black-Out Dates), the deposit will be the greater of whatever the minimum stay requirement is for the black-out dates being reserved (exclusive of taxes that will be paid at check-in) or the normal deposit as applicable to the reservation. Check-in is between 1:00 pm and 8:00 pm, and check out is up to 11:00 am. Late check-out and early check-in is offered for an extra $25 fee (plus tax), as a courtesy and based on availability, to allow you to stay longer and enjoy your time in paradise (arrive as early as 9:00 am / depart as late as 6:00 pm). Anytime a reservation is booked and guests have not arrived by 8:00 pm, there will be a $50 (plus tax) late check-in fee automatically charged to the reservation (since late night arrivals require Team Rio staff members to remain on duty on over-time past normal scheduled office hours to assist with arrivals) even if the guest choses to arrive the following morning, unless the guest has spoken to a resort host prior to the closing of the office during normal business hours. Late Check-In is allowed between 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm when approved (no RVs are allowed to enter the resort after 10:00 pm under any circumstances). Anytime a guest advises that they will be arriving after the office is closed, and the guest choses to arrive the following day without advising our office prior to closing time of their change in plans, the guest will be automatically charged the late check-in fee whether or not that guest comes in on the scheduled arrival date or the following morning (since late night arrivals require Team Rio staff members to remain on duty past normal scheduled office hours to assist with arrivals). Refer to our policies page for information on cancellations, no shows and all related charges. Playa del Rio has a no-refund policy, and all Deposits are non-refundable pre-payments. We do not give refunds for cancellations, no shows, last-minute reservation changes, or early departures (including early departures caused by violation of Resort Policies). Resort In-House Credits are issued pursuant to our cancellation policies for those who qualify (see cancellation policies for further information). We do not issue resort credits for any deposits paid toward monthly reservation cancellations or cancellations for black-out dates. We welcome guests and families, and our sites are rented for two (2) adults and three (3) children under the age of seventeen (17) years of age. All additional adults and children will require an additional $5 / person / night charge (there is no charge for children under the age of one (1) year old).
Black out Dates: Blackout dates are special events, holidays, and dates when our nightly rates are priced at special rates and our deposits are different than normal off-season and in-season deposits. Blackout dates are dates that are excluded from weekly and monthly rates (if you rent a monthly stay during a time when there is a black out date included, the blackout dates may be added to the monthly cost, additional costs may be added to your monthly costs, or your monthly dates may be extended by the number of blackout days with blackout charges additional).

The rates during the week from the first Thursday to Wednesday of the Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival are $85 / night (3-night minimum at $85 / night — Deposit is $255) and the rates during the final weekend from the second Thursday thru the Sunday final shows are $150 / night (3-night minimum at $150 / night — Deposit is $450). We require weekend reservations that include a Friday or Saturday night to be a 2-night stay, unless we have an opening between other reservations that may allow a 1-night stay (discuss with rental office). Weekly rates cannot include black-out dates; while monthly rates sometimes may include one (1) black-out date at no additional charge depending on the black-out dates (this will always be discussed at time of reservation; and in some cases black-out dates within a month can cause the monthly rate to be higher than posted rates). The monthly rate during November is $950 and includes Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival and Thanksgiving black out dates at no additional charges.
Boat Slip Rentals: Boat Slips are available for rent at $25 / night for boats and $15 / night for wave runners to registered guests of the resort and must be booked for the same number of nights as your RV site reservation. We offer special discounted boat slip rates for weekly rentals [$150 / week]. Our monthly boat slip rental is $200 / month. No utilities are available for boat slips, so make sure before you book a boat slip that you can dock without the need for any utilities; and make sure that you have a location for cleaning, repairing and storing your boat and boat trailer since that is not allowed on our docks or on resort property. We do not have a boat launch, but there are many local boat launches in the near-by Orange Beach and Perdido Key area for your convenience. We do not have boat trailer storage space at the resort; and we do not allow boat trailers, boats on trailers, or wave runners on trailers in the RV park during your stay without special approval (sometimes we will allow trailers to be parked on your RV Site when pre-approved at the time of reservation in place of a vehicle; and sometimes, during our off-season periods, we can rent you a boat trailer storage space for storing your trailer if your boat is docked in our marina) on resort property for $15 / day based on the time of year and availability; but we do not allow boats, wave runners, and/or trailers to be parked on RV sites without special pre-approval at time of reservation — see office for details. For your convenience, boat, trailer, and RV storage is available approximately ten (10) miles from the resort at U-Store-It 180 on Canal Road in Orange Beach, Alabama, which is within approximately five (5) miles of two Orange Beach public launches that are located near the resort. Also, please note that ‘A minimum of 90% of the wet slips at the Playa del Rio docking facility are available for rent to the general public on a “First Come, First Served” basis’ — see office for details on monthly boat slip rental to non-guests. Boat slip rentals to people who are not guests in residence with an RV will require a minimum of a 1-week rental, then rental pricing will be our standard $25 / night rate. Sales tax of 7.5% is added to all boat slip rental charges. All boat rental reservation charges require non-refundable pre-payment deposits the same as RV site rentals at time of booking the reservation. Anyone renting a boat slip in our marina will be allowed to use our fish cleaning station; but they will be required to dispose of all fish parts away from our property (throwing fish parts in the water off our docks or disposing in resort trash receptacles is not allowed and is grounds for eviction from the resort without any refunds).
Long-term Leases: Leave your RV at the Playa del Rio and enjoy paradise year-around! We offer annual leases for $900 / month plus the cost of your monthly power bill (all other utilities are included in the monthly rental price). The deposit for a 12-month lease is $1,300 for leases signed between August 1st and December 31st -or- $2,500 for leases signed between January 1st and July 31st (as this is going into our peak rental season). Deposits do no apply to any monthly rental payments — all deposits will be held until the lease has ended, and returned within sixty (60) days following the expiration date of the lease based on satisfactory delivery of RV site back to Playa del Rio, all rent, charges and fees due having been paid in full, and full payment of the final power bill having been paid. Note that we do not re-sell any power service, we do not do any meter reading, and we only provide a copy of the billing as billed by Gulf Power to be paid by the renter. The only exception is the first and last month’s power bill which will be pro-rated based on the meter reading on date of arrival or departure with the power bill provided by Gulf Power for those billing cycles. The deposit is due at the time the lease is signed, the first monthly rental payment will be due upon the day of your arrival, rental payments will be due on the first day of each months, and all power bills will be due within three (3) calendar days from the date you are billed by our office which will be on the date the power bills are received at our office from Gulf Power. All payments for rent and power are due within three (3) days of their applicable date to avoid a ten percent (10%) late fee. We also offer 6-month leases billed at the then-current monthly rates. The deposit for a 6-month (and one day) leases is the monthly deposit for the applicable month as with all transient rentals, and the rates will be charged at the then-current monthly rates of the lease period. The deposit will be held until the last month for all 6-month leases that include the In-Season and Peak Season months of March thru August. For 6-month leases that do not include the In-Season and Peak Season months of March thru August, the deposit will be deducted from each month’s rent when paid. There are no sales or lodging taxes charged on 6-month and 12-month long-term leases. All deposits are held until the end of the term for six (6) and twelve (12) month leases, and are not applied to rental payments unless during the off-season.

Discounts are not offered during special events, black out dates, holidays, weekends, or during our peak and in-season months [during March 1st through August 15th discounts are not available]. In the event a customer is required to be put on a premium site at the time of the booking, the resort has the option to allow a discount or to make a complimentary premium upgrade at no charge, based on availability and dates. During the off-season we also discount our weekly rates so the nightly rate is at a lower rate (you pay for six (6) nights and get your seventh (7th) night FREE, so we do not offer any additional discounts on weekly or monthly rates).

We offer premium upgrades during the off-season on monthly rentals for $100 / month and during the in-season on monthly rentals for $200 / month on monthly rental reservations.

Currently, the West side of the resort has been completed and sites #16 (#16-W) thru #26 are newly renovated sites with new concrete pads, paver patios and landscaping areas, which are all premium sites; while the East side of the resort renovations are planned for 2017 / 2018 (sites #1 – #15 are not newly renovated sites and are a mix of gravel, concrete, paver patios and landscaping areas – inquire with office for more specific details on each site). The location of site numbers may vary from artist site renderings on the East side and preliminary site plans on the website on the East side (and sites #16-E and #27 are not pictured); so please discuss with our reservations office when booking a specific site for the first time and also when you have any questions or concerns about the resort, special requested sites and any construction scheduling.
