If a reservation is canceled more than 60 days prior to your arrival date, all costs and fees are refundable except the booking fee. If a reservation is canceled less than 60 days prior to your arrival, the rental rate and TOT will be refunded only to the
extent the house can be re-booked for your reserved dates, but cleaning fee, pool heat, and all deposits will be refunded in full. There is no refund for early departure. If you booked through an online booking platform under a cancellation policy different

may cancel this Contract. In this event, a full refund will be made immediately to Guest of all payments made. Until check-in, AVR reserves full discretion to assign Guest to a different vacation rental property. Reasonable effort will be made to substitute
a property of equal or greater size and quality.
VACATION RENTAL INSURANCE: CSA Vacation Rental Insurance has been made available with your reservation. Vacation Rental Insurance reimburses for pre-paid, non-refundable
expenses due to certain unforeseeable circumstances that may jeopardize your vacation investment and force you to incur unplanned expenses. We strongly recommend you purchase this valuable protection. If not purchased, you acknowledge you have read and understand
our cancellation policy and choose not to purchase Vacation Rental Insurance on behalf of all occupants. Separate terms and conditions apply, read your policy carefully and contact CSA at (866) 999-4018 with coverage questions.

hours of 10am and 10pm, is 4 more than the overnight maximum. No parties are permitted, and occupancy limits are strictly enforced. Guests must use existing bedding. No inflatable or portable beds are allowed, with the exception of portable cribs for infants.
Violating these occupancy limitations is a violation of this Contract and the City Code and may result in immediate removal with no refund of rent, fees, or deposits to Guest.

may not be duplicated. Guest will be charged for lost keys and openers in the event they are removed from the property upon termination of occupancy.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES:
Glass is not allowed out in the pool area. There are plastic glasses, platters, and bowls provided, so any broken glass out by the pool will result in a $50.00 fee
to clean the pool deck area of glass. If a glass is broken IN the pool there will be a charge in the amount of $250 or the actual cost to AVR, whichever is greater, to drain the pool, clear out all glass and repair any damage. NOTIFY AVR IMMEDIATELY so we
can take steps to remove the broken glass and protect the filter system and future Guests.
No candles are allowed inside the house or outside on the property at any time.
Activities involving the pool and spa carry inherent risk, and Guest assumes all liability for that risk when using the pool or spa. Minors are never allowed in the
pool or spa unsupervised…leaving children unsupervised at any time could result in serious injury. Consuming alcoholic beverages is not advised with pool/spa activity. In addition to causing impaired judgment and risk of injury, the effects of alcohol are
enhanced with spa heat. Diving is absolutely prohibited in the pool. Running or engaging in horseplay around the pool area is prohibited. Please dry off before entering the home, as floors may be slippery when wet.
ABSOLUTELY NO pets are allowed on the property that are not specifically approved by AVR in writing in advance and noted in the Contract at the time of booking (just
noting them on the Contract is not considered approval). If you have rented a pet friendly house, a pet addendum will be attached to this Contract that must be filled out, even if you are not bringing a pet. Any sign of unauthorized pets will result in immediate
removal and loss of all rent and deposits.
MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS DURING STAY: Maintenance problems sometimes arise in homes as they do in your own. Problems will be handled in a timely and professional manner.
The rental rate will not be adjusted due to any equipment malfunction, as these items are only amenities. Notify us of any problems with any equipment including TVs, DVDs, air conditioning units, hot water heaters, stoves, outdoor grills, refrigerators, or
pool equipment. Please be aware that repairs may not always be immediate. If repairs are not likely within 24 hours, a rate reduction may be considered based on the severity of the issue or lack of amenity usage. In the rare event of a more serious maintenance
or habitability issue arising during stay, it may be necessary to terminate occupancy early. In such case, AVR may make reasonable efforts to relocate Guest in equivalent lodging or may cancel the remaining term of the reservation and provide Guest a prorated
refund of sums paid by Guest.
FURNISHINGS NOT GUARANTEED: Information regarding individual property listings on the AVR website or online travel agency website is believed accurate but cannot
be guaranteed. We have made every effort to ensure that all the information on the websites is current and accurate. Furnishings are subject to change without notice. Furniture, bedding, mattress pads, utensils or any other property supplied with the Property
must not be taken out or transferred from one property to another. Loss of these items, as well as damage to the property or furnishings in excess of normal wear will be charged to the guest(s).
ENTRY BY AVR: An AVR representative may enter the property at any time, but will use best efforts to give a 24-hour notice for normal maintenance or inspections.
SECURITY CAMERAS: Some houses may feature cameras as part of a security system. In most cases these cameras are exclusively directed towards doorways and entrances,
but in some cases they may include views of living areas or outdoor areas. By signing this agreement and renting this house you acknowledge that there may be cameras in the house and agree to their use. These cameras are for the protection of the house as
well as you and your property. Under no circumstances will these cameras be used for any public or commercial purpose. You may cover any cameras that view living areas (if we haven't done it already), however door and entrance cameras must remain active for
security reasons. If you have any questions about the use of cameras, please ask us. We will be happy to tell you if the house you are renting features security cameras and give you more details about them if it does.
CLEANING FEE: The property will be delivered to Guest in a professionally cleaned condition. Upon termination of occupancy, Guest will deliver the property in a similar
condition, less ordinary wear and tear. Guest will be charged a nonrefundable fee set forth in this Contract. This fee is for a general cleaning. If cleaning is heavy, the extra cost will be documented and may be deducted from the Security Deposit or charged
to credit card on file.
SECURITY DEPOSIT: The security deposit refund is processed after property is vacated and all terms and conditions of this Contract are satisfied. In the event of
any breach, the security deposit shall be retained to compensate Owner and/or agent for such breach, including payment of cost of extra cleaning, repairing or replacing any of the property, its contents or common areas and recreational facilities, lost rental
income and expenses related to future Guests. In the event that said deposit is insufficient for that purpose, Guest shall pay the additional costs on demand, and hereby authorizes AVR to charge such costs to the card on file. If all terms and conditions of
this Contract are fulfilled and there is no damage to the house, the deposit refund will be processed within 7 business days after departure date. For guest stays of 28 days or more, security deposits refunds will be processed within 30 days after departure
VACATION RENTAL DAMAGE PROTECTION: As a part of your stay, you may be able to purchase a Vacation Rental Damage Protection plan designed to cover unintentional damages
to the rental unit interior that occur during your stay provided they are disclosed to management prior to check-out. If purchased, the policy will pay a maximum benefit of the policy limit you purchased. Any damages that exceed that policy limit or are not
covered under the plan will be charged to the credit card on file. If, during your stay at one of our rental properties, an insured person causes any damage to real or personal property of the unit as a result of inadvertent acts or omissions, the Insurer
will reimburse the Insured for the cost of repair or replacement of such property up to a maximum benefit of the policy limit for the plan you purchased. Certain terms and conditions apply. Full details of the Vacation Rental Damage coverage are contained
in the Description of Coverage or Insurance Policy www.vacationrentalinsurance.com/g20vrd. The Vacation Rental Damage plan can be purchased up to, and including at, check-in. By submitting payment for this plan, you authorize and request CSA Travel Protection
and Insurance Services to pay directly AVR any amount payable under the terms and conditions of the Vacation Rental Damage. Please contact AVR directly if you do not wish to participate in this assignment. If you do not wish to purchase the Vacation Rental
Damage Protection, a damage deposit will be required instead as per your booking. In addition to the exclusions noted above and in the Description of Coverage, note that this insurance does not cover intentional damage, or any damage or fines caused by your
negligence or a violation of the house rules or this contract, nor does it cover excess cleaning. Any charges incurred that are not covered under this plan will be charged to your credit card on file, and you hereby expressly give AVR permission to charge
your card for such purpose.
MONTHLY UTILITIES: Guests that stay for 28 days or more are responsible for the entire gas and electric bills during their stay, based on recorded meter reads from
check in to check out and rates on file at AVR. In this case, a utility deposit will be taken in advance. Guests will be billed monthly for actual utility charges, and the deposit will be returned with the security deposit 30 days after departure date.
