Each unit has a maximum capacity, which you were informed of when making your reservation. Overcrowding of units may result in the immediate eviction and loss of deposit and rent. Large gatherings are not permitted on the premises without prior written approval of the rental agent.
We do our best to accurately describe each unit and its amenities prior to booking, but cannot be held responsible if tenants are dissatisfied with the accommodations. If you have any questions about the unit amenities, please call our office. We will gladly discuss them with you. Our rentals do not provide beach chairs or beach towels. Very few rental units provide grills.
Should any mechanical failures occur during your stay, we will do our best to make prompt and thorough repairs. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for inconvenience caused by inoperable equipment.
Check out time is 10:00 AM. Check-out instructions are provided with your keys. When departing after business hours, or on Sunday, please drop keys through the mail slot in the front door of our rental agent. Please do not leave keys in the unit or give them to anyone other than our rental agent.
Pools are regularly cleaned, treated and maintained at the owner’s expense. Following inclement weather or high winds, pool service cannot be expected “on demand” for removal of fallen leaves or minor debris. When renting a property with a pool, it is important to remember that your help in maintaining it, to some degree, is expected. Pools are heated from approximately Thanksgiving to Easter only and are set no higher than 82 degrees. During colder weather, we cannot guarantee that the pool can be maintained to that degree.
Many units now offer various forms of high speed internet service for your convenience. Due to the numerous different providers and age and configuration of your personal computer, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to connect. We will do our best to assist you, but cannot be held responsible and no refunds will be offered if you are unable to take advantage of this service.
RIGHT OF REFUSAL
We cannot offer the right of first refusal on rental properties. If you want to rent your unit again for next year, please let us know as soon as you can after arrival to ensure availability. Please do not wait until departure to inform us of your desire to return. We do have to make the property available to others until a reservation is confirmed and cannot be held responsible if your unit has already been booked and is unavailable to you.
All of our units are non-smoking. Please smoke outdoors and responsibly discard all smoking debris. Evidence of smoking in the unit will result in an immediate and non-refundable $500.00 cleaning fee charged against your card.
