Terms, Conditions, Rules and Additional Information
A/C Fees– We charge you if the AC is in the “ON” position at any time during your stay. Electrical costs are very high and the charge is a fraction of our true cost to run the A/C. During the summer it can get hot, so we have A/C available for your comfort, but because of past abuse, we remotely monitor the A/C settings. For those that do not use the A/C, there are not any surcharges. We do a modest surcharge if you use the A/C conservatively and you do not set the temperature below 78 degrees (26 Celsius), and a slightly higher surcharge if you set the A/C lower than 78 (26 Celsius). We consider any setting at or below 72 (22 Celsius) to be “unreasonable use of utilities” and to be in violation of the rental agreement. See Utilities and Violation sections below for more details. FYI – Our A/C (electric) bill has run as high as $3000 per month ($100 per day)! To minimize the A/C requirements in the summer, we suggest you open the windows during the night and close them when the heat of the day comes. Open them again after the sun goes down. Please DO turn on the ceiling fans; doing this you will find that the A/C is not needed, or needed as much. Electricity is very expensive so to avoid surcharges and to save money, run it ONLY when it is needed and Please make sure everyone in the home is aware of the thermostat settings! Part of your deposit will be charged and not returned. If our thermostat monitoring hub, is unplugged or disconnected during your stay, you will be charged $60 per day surcharge plus a $50 reconnect fee. We have multiple A/C units in each home and the charges are based off the lowest settings on any A/C unit. Please inform all people staying in the home of these charges. You will be charge no matter “who” turned it on (with or without your knowledge). Please check the settings as soon as you arrive in case someone prior had it on. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Casa 1 A/C fee – $40 day for 78 degrees (26 Celsius) or higher and $60 per day for 77 degrees (25 Celsius) or lower.
Casa 2 A/C fee – $25 day for 78 degrees (26 Celsius) or higher and $45 per day for 77 degrees (25 Celsius) or lower.
Cancellations – We have a Non Cancellation Policy. If you cannot honor the reservation, as a courtesy, we will try to help you re-rent the property. We would need all notices, for any reason, to be made in writing. If a notice is received more than 90 days before the rental date, all attempts to re-rent the property will be made. Your account will be charged 10% of the total reservation amount (with a $200 per villa minimum) as a re-rental fee. If the property does get re-rented, the amount of money collected will be credited to your account. Example: You had a 7 day rental and we re-rented it for 6 days, you get 100% of what we collect (6 days) and will not get credit for the 1 day. If less than a 90 day notice is given no attempts to re-rent it will be made. If you think you may have to cancel or you are concerned about losing any money for any reason, we strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance. See Travel Insurance below
Change of dates – When a reservation is made, those dates are reserved for you and we start turning away other guests that make inquiries for that time for that unit. If you need to move those dates back or forward a bit, (still renting same amount of days and still maintaining most of the same dates) we try to be flexible, but a $200 change fee does apply. If you wish to increase the length of your stay, we will be happy to do so, based on availability. But you cannot decrease the length of your stay. The reason is when you book, we reserve those dates and that unit for you and we start turning away future guests because you had that unit reserved for those dates. This is the reason we do not allow any decrease in the length of your stay, or any decrease in the number of units you are renting. Also rescheduling for completely different dates, or unit, is NOT allowed. It is considered the same as a cancellation. See cancellation policy above.
Cleaning/Housekeeping – While linens and bath towels are included in the unit, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate. If you would like daily cleaning service, you can make arrangements direct with the cleaning people. The property is cleaned prior to occupancy and should be left in a reasonably clean condition when vacating. All dishes, kitchen items, pots and pans should be cleaned, dried and put away. All garbage should be securely put in the trash containers by the street. Any excessive cleaning or the cost of any damages caused by the guests will be deducted from the deposit. Examples of excessive cleaning: beer cans/water bottles/cigarettes or any other debris left, not bagged and taken to trash area.
Deposit – A deposit is required and refunded within 30 days after you move out. If more than 1 charge card is used in making payments, we normally refund/credit the deposit back to the last card used. Please let us know if you want the refund to be handled in a different manner. Most Deductions will be made for any outstanding balance that is owed, early move-in or late move-out, abusive use of the A/C, missing or damaged items, any violations in the rental agreement, or if any excessive cleaning is required.
Drains – The home is on a septic system. The septic system is very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. We test all sewer drain lines to make sure they are flowing before you arrive and they must be working properly when you leave. DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper. No feminine products should be flushed down the toilet. You will be charged for clearing of any sewer lines.
Early Check In/Late Check Out – Most times we can do either 1 hour early or 1 hour late at no charge, but depending on how busy we are, sometimes it is not possible. Early Check-In or Late Check-Out fees are 10% of your daily rate. Example: $300 rate is $30 per hour for any extra hours. Late check out after 3PM is another day rental fee. All times are rounded up to the nearest full hour. If you have requested for early check-in or late check-out please check a few days prior to the rental period to make sure we still can honor the request. If we can no longer honor the request, you will be given a full refund of the early/late fees paid. VERY IMPORTANT – We do remotely monitor when guests check in and when they check out. Any guests found to move in early or check out late without making prior arrangements will be charged 20% of the daily rate per hour for all hours beyond the agreed to hours mentioned in this agreement.
Floors – While the home and floors are cleaned prior to you arrival, the elements from the ocean breeze and the beach do tend to leave a film on the floors. This is normal, especially if doors and windows are left open.

It goes over particular operations of the property and contains important information and is considered part of this Rental Agreement. The latest version can always be found on line on our web site. This guidebook also goes over how to operate the electronic components and has a TV guide.
Heating Fees– We charge a small fee if the heat is in the “ON” position at any time during your stay. Electrical costs are very high and the charge is a fraction of our true cost to run the heat. Depending on the settings the fees are about $25 per day. Contact use for more details and exact pricing.
