If you are planning a Multi-Family Group or an Organizational Gathering of 4+ people, please contact us for “large group” accommodations and fees, which are handled on an individual basis.
All fees are due upon receipt. We will send you a Paypal invoice as soon as your reservation has been confirmed. If it is necessary for you to cancel a confirmed reservation, we will refund your fee minus the $25.00 non-refundable processing fee. Any cancellation made in less than 30 days of reservation will forfeit 50% of the service fee.
On rare occasions our hosts may have to cancel after a reservation has been confirmed. We will make every effort to find alternative arrangements for you - either by rescheduling the dates or finding another location. If these arrangements cannot be made to your satisfaction, we will refund 100% of your payment, including the $25 processing fee.
The ministry is primarily funded through the reservation fees and covers the cost of screening guests, coordinating with hosts, and facilitating correspondence between guests and hosts, along with general administrative costs and ministry development. For most stays, there is no charge at the Hospitality Home. Fees or gifts are not tax-deductible.
We welcome general donations to help defray the cost of operating this ministry. You can donate through PayPal or make checks payable to MAKAHIKI MINISTRIES, PO Box 415, Mariposa, CA 95338. For these, you will be sent a tax deductible donation receipt.
Another way you can help is to offer your home as a Hospitality Home. Go to our "Becoming a Host Home" page for more information.
