Right to Enter.
Property representatives have the right to enter the vacation property at any given time, with prior notice to the guests, in order to inspect the property and perform any duties as per the property management contract with the property owner.
The number of guests stipulated on the reservation confirmation is the maximum number of guests allowed to stay at the vacation property. If more guests arrive than stated on the reservation confirmation, they may be denied occupancy, or an extra person charge of $50 USD (FIFTY AMERICAN DOLLARS) per guest, per night will apply.
Guests occupying the vacation property will be responsible for any damages caused by them or their guests to the property or its assets during their stay in that property. Cost for damage will be limited to repairs or replacement value of the items damaged. Guests shall not remove any items from the property, such as kitchen appliances, glassware, furniture, or any other item, or the replacement cost will be charged to their credit card.
NO SMOKING: Smoking is NOT allowed in any of our units. Smoking is not allowed outside by any open window/door. Smoking is permitted on balconies as long as the doors and windows are closed. If smoking occurs inside the unit, the tenant will lose 100% of their damage deposit.

A $200 fee will be charged if there is any report of pet hair on bedding and sofas. Guest pets must be leashed at all times when outside of the unit. The violation of any terms of this pet policy subjects the guest to a fine of $200 USD or termination of the rental period.
