Check in / Check Out: Check-in begins at 3 pm on (the “Check-in Date”) and check-out is no later than 10 am on (the “Checkout Date”). We are not able to offer early check-in or late check-out.

 

Access: We have a little annex at the home and we’re often on hand if you need anything during your stay. We keep a low profile, so as not to intrude on your vacation, however if we feel that it’s necessary to inspect or repair anything during your stay we do exercise a right of access policy.

 

Cleaning and Housekeeping:

 

Our commitment to cleanliness: We are proud housekeepers and always endeavor to leave The Beach House as we would want to find it. If on check-in you find any of the rooms unclean or items damaged, please let us know immediately, so that we can correct the situation immediately.

 

Keep it clean: We do not offer a daily housekeeping service, so please treat our home in the manner you would expect others to treat your own.

 

Ready to rent policy: We operate a ‘ready to rent’ policy, which means the premises should be left in a ‘ready to rent’ condition on check out. If we find the property in need of maintenance, excessive cleaning or repair after check out we will deduct those costs from the security deposit prior to refund. Any damages over and above the security deposit are the tenant’s responsibility.

 

Before checkout we ask that you thoroughly clean and put away all utensils, plates, pots and pans, and remove food, drink, trash and recyclables from the home. Please also make sure the air conditioning is switched off and all windows and doors are closed and locked.

 

Bed linens and towels:  We do not supply sheets and towels (unless agreed upon at an additonal charge). We do supply mattress pads, bedspreads and pillows on all the beds.  Please do not use our bedspreads or blankets to take to the beach!

 

Waste disposal: To keep our home and neighborhood clean and odor-free, we ask that guests dispose of all waste material generated during the rental period in the allocated trash and recycling in bins located on the left side of the house. The bins must be put out Sunday night for early Monday morning pick up.

 

House Rules:

 

No smoking: We’re not lovers of the smell of smoke and don’t allow smoking in our home. We ask that guests respect the no-smoking policy, or expect to forfeit the security deposit.

 

Guest invitations:  We have a no visitor policy.

We have worked really hard making our vacation home nice and we would like to keep it that way so we do not overload the house, we limit the rental to 6 people, we do not allow visitors, get togethers or parties of any kind.

Everyone in the rental party must be listed in the rental agreement.

 

No gatherings or parties: We love our guests, but we also have a great relationship with our neighbors and like to keep it that way. That means we expect our guests to act in a responsible manner. No parties, or other noisy gatherings during your stay. Quiet time starts at 11 pm, please keep outdoor noise levels down after this time.
