House rulesINFORMATION DURING YOUR STAY
An Information Booklet has also been placed in each rental for guests to review upon check-in. Your host has personally decorated each unit in a unique theme furnished with one of a kind collectible items and turned her estate into a tropical paradise graciously shared with guests from all around the world. In turn, we ask that you respect your host and the property and abide by the rules set forth in this informational booklet. Violations of rules will be charged against your security deposit with amount of fines determined by owner.
AMENITIES: All common area amenities are for guests use. Since our guests come from all time zones, we allow 24/7 use as long as other occupants are not disturbed.
BBQ: Supplies are kept inside BBQ drawers. Never bring unit dishes, glasses, etc. outdoors which can be broken or lost. Buy paper cups, plates, etc. for outdoor eating and drinking. Clean BBQ immediately after use in respect for the next guest. Throw trash in appropriate cans in trash area.
CANDLES: Only flameless candles allowed
CHECK-IN: 3:00 PM
CHECK-OUT : 11:00 AM.
CHILDREN: Never leave small children unattended outdoors.
COUPONS: We offer our guests discount coupons for dining, entertainment, attractions, car rental and more (as per availability.) Come to our office during business hours for coupons.
COFFEEMAKERS: We have placed permanent reusable filters inside the filter holder, so guests do not need to buy disposable coffee filters. Just remove permanent filter from filter holder, dump coffee grounds in trash can, and rinse out. Never throw permanent filter out!
DISCOUNTS: No discounts are offered for any reason (weekly, monthly, senior citizen, frequent guest, etc.) as we have priced our rentals so low we stay booked solid. There are ways, however, to save money on your booking: book directly with us rather than a 3rd party agency, pay cash rather than Paypal or credit card, and participate in our referral program (see “Referral program.”)
DISHES: All dishes, pots, pans, silverware, etc. must be washed, dried, and put away in their original location in the cupboard prior to your departure as it is not included in housekeeping duties.
ELECTRONICS: Additional multiple outlets have been installed so never unplug our electrical items. Re-setting clocks and plugging electrical items back into the walls is not included in housekeeping duties.
EMERGENCY CALLS: We attempt to provide all guest information in a clear, concise, and thorough manner on our website, in our Check-in instructions, and in our Information Booklet. Our office is open during normal daytime office hours to accept walk-ins, emails, phone calls and respond to guest’s needs. All of our rentals are self check-in. Guests are emailed their check-in instructions a few days prior to their arrival. Guests are asked to review and print them out. Any questions/concerns should be addressed upon receipt of email. Our guests arrive at all times day and night, as they come from all parts of the world. On occasion, due to guest’s failure to read or print out their check-in instructions we receive “midnight phone calls.” We are not a hotel/motel employing personnel for round the clock 8 hr. shifts and it would be unreasonable to expect your host to be on call 24/7 so phone calls/emails outside of our regular business hours will NOT be responded to!
EXTENDING YOUR STAY: If you’d like to extend your stay, just ask! We will check availability for you. But do not wait until you are ready to check out. Plan ahead!
FIRE PIT: Skewers are inside fire pit and wood found in a container next to it. Never bring unit dishes, glasses, etc. outdoors which can be broken or lost.

HOUSEKEEPING: We do not provide maid service or replenish housekeeping items during your stay. This is how we keep our rates low for you and also respect your privacy.
