Let us know immediately if the unit has not been properly cleaned.

MAINTENANCE ISSUES AND DAMAGES:


ISSUES: Report all maintenance issues promptly by calling. Every effort will be made to correct the situation; however, no refunds or rates adjustments will be made for mechanical or maintenance issues and/or failures. We make an effort to keep all of our properties in good condition. Maintenance issues might occur just as they could at your own well-kept home. Please allow us the opportunity to make an effort to correct the issue by calling us immediately. 


NO GUARANTEES: Working condition of pools, air conditioners, cable, phones, internet service, TVs, DVRs, DVDs, appliances, etc. are NOT guaranteed. No guarantee that pools will be heated. NO REFUNDS or rate adjustments will be made for mechanical failures and malfunctioning equipment. These amenities are extras provided in addition to the beach house.  Although all attempts will be made to correct the situation, some breakdowns cannot be prevented or repaired during your occupancy.


DAMAGE: Report any damage or breakage upon occurrence by calling so the matter can be settled before departure.


NO SMOKING: Lessee acknowledges that smoking is prohibited inside the premises. Cleansing the unit of a smoke smell is costly as it may require cleaning of blinds/curtains, furniture, carpets, etc. Smoke is very obvious in these units. If it is detected following a guest’s stay, there will be a fee of $500 for de-smoking the unit.


MINIMUM RENTAL AGE:
Home will not be rented to persons other than families, married couples and adults who are 25 years of age or older.

CITY ORDINANCES SPECIFY THAT PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE BEACH.
