Hosts have, to the best of their ability, given an accurate description of the property and its condition. Guest understands that it is considered as reserved “sight unseen”. Our cleaning staff will have cleaned it before your occupancy. All electrical, plumbing and appliances should be in working order. The failures of operation of certain extra amenities, such as large screen TVs, cable, or the Internet and WiFi service are not a basis for any refund. Host will make every effort to have these items repaired. When you arrive, if you find that the house has not been cleaned to normal standards please notify the host immediately. The Guest agrees to hold the hosts harmless from any liability for the condition of the house. Due to the nature of beach properties, the sand, stairs, decks and concrete are not always stable. Use at your own risk.


Guest agrees to keep house, furniture and furnishings in good order, to keep walks, patios clean and free of debris. Removing, adding or changing furniture without host’s written approval shall be deemed a material breach of this Rental Agreement, and is strictly prohibited. Guest is responsible for cost of replacement of any damage to furniture or premises and replacement of missing items. Under no circumstances can any furnishing or linen be taken outside onto the beach with the exception of those items specifically mentioned in “USE OF EXTRAS”.


With Guest’s permission, Host may enter the premises during reasonable daylight hours. In any emergency, hosts may enter the premises at any time without permission of Guest for the purposes of making repairs to alleviate such emergency.


Guest will be completely responsible for any and all damage to the home or property caused by guests, whether accidental or due to guest negligence.


Guests will furnish their own beach towels, beach chairs and beach shades (EZUPs, umbrellas, etc.). However, the host makes available extra towels and linens to handle unusual circumstances or needs including a few beach towels. Any unused beds will be left as found. Leave used beds unmade and used towels on the bathroom floor or laundry room.


No lifeguard may be on duty. Accordingly, persons using the ocean do so at their own risk and the host assumes no responsibility for accident or injury. No one should swim alone. Guests will hold the hosts harmless from any and all bodily injury and/or property damage incurred on the property arising out of guests’ negligent acts or omissions.

All furniture must be returned to its original location on Guest’s departure or an additional charge will be made.


Guests will be charged for any missing items reasonably attributable to guests and not returned after notification.

Hosts will notify guests in the event that items were inadvertently taken, and provide guests the opportunity to return the missing items.


Guest understands that any personal property of and used by Guest is not insured by host and host shall not be responsible for any lost, stolen or missing property of the Guest or property of Guest left after check out.

This is a NON SMOKING vacation rental. Evidence of smoking, such as the smell of cigarette or cigar smoke inside the home by the cleaning crew is sufficient basis to charge the guest for smoke cleanup and removal from carpeting, AC ducts & filters and furniture.

Guests may arrange for extra nights in advance to avoid any late checkout fees. If Guests are not present when cleaning crews arrive and have left their possessions in the house, cleaning crews will collect their possessions and remove them from the premises in order to prepare the unit for incoming guests and Guest will be charged for this service. Guests will be subject to additional fees if they enter the property before check-in time at 4:00pm, unless previously granted permission from host.
