VACATION RENTAL AGREEMENT
This Rental Agreement and Contract (the “Agreement”) is a legally binding agreement made and entered into as of the Reservation Date written below by and between the undersigned person(s) or company (the “Guest”) and the undersigned owner (“Rental Agent”), pursuant to which the Guest has agreed to rent the residence described below (the “Property”), for the duration of the Rental Term for the Total Rental Fee and other good and valuable consideration as described herein.
Guest agrees that no more than [8 Guests] persons shall be permitted on the Property at any time during the Rental Term, all of whom shall comply with the conditions and restrictions imposed upon Guest under this Agreement.
CONDITION AND USE OF PROPERTY
The Property is provided in “as is” condition and House Rules described below should be observed. Rental Agent shall use its best efforts to ensure the operation of all amenities in the Property, such as internet access, satellite or cable TV access or hot tubs, fireplaces as applicable. Rental Agent shall not be held responsible for such items failure to work, but will make every effort to correct any issues as reported as quickly as possible. Guest acknowledges that use of amenities such as hot tubs, pools, spas, fireplaces, decks, and the like may be potentially dangerous and involve potential risks if improperly used, particularly with regard to children and such use is at the Guest’s own risk.
Check-in time: from 4pm
Check-out time: 10am
We provide bed linen, bath and hand towels, soap in dispenser in bathrooms, 1 toilet paper roll for each bathroom, kitchen towels, high chair, kids stroller, iron and iron board, hair dryer, pool blanket and few pool inflatables (please see note about the pool blanket and inflatables in next section).
We do NOT provide bin bags (unless some were left in the house), extra toilet paper, toiletries, beach/pool towels, face towels, any type of condiment/food, washing up liquid, laundry detergent or conditioner – we kindly ask you to buy/bring your own.
Please keep the air conditioning within the range of 75°F (23°C). You should never turn it off, otherwise the humidity created during the period that the system is off is too much for the system to reduce when it is switched on again, resulting in the AC powering off. Instead, if you think you will be out of the house for a long period, and to save energy, I would kindly request you to put it at 80°F (26°C) (Cool).
Please try to remember not to leave doors open while AC is operating
2. FANS / LIGHTS/ TVS
Please remember to switch off all the lights, fans and TVs before leaving the house and when they are not in use.
3. TRASH COLLECTION
Every Thursday. The trash should be sorted by recycled or general waste.
They should go into bags before going in the bin or recycling boxes. A charge of $30 may incur for failing to follow this rule.
Please remember to empty the tumbledryer filter.
5. FOOD DISPOSAL (sink – right side)
This is for food only and all care should be taken not to drop any object, like piece of cutlery, plastics, caps, etc. to avoid the breakage of the disposal.
Barbecue equipment is not provided. In the eventuality of guests having disposable barbecues, we ask this to be in the grass area, as the fat and charcoal can stain the floor.
Smoking is not allowed inside the house.
Pets not allowed.
POOL HEAT & EQUIPMENT
We are happy to provide the option of pool heating. In order to provide this service as low cost effectively as possible, we ask that you read the following:
• Pool heating is provided for an additional fee, and is only permitted for those guests staying for a minimum of 3 days.
• The pool will be heated to a target temperature of 82 – 84 Fahrenheit (27-29 C).
• The pool heat will be turned on at least 24 hours prior to the check-in time. It may take 24-48 hours for the pool temperature to reach the target level.
• If the air temperature falls below 55 F (13 C), the pool heater may shut down, as a safety precaution, which will obviously reduce the temperature of the pool.
• The pool heater controls are locked. Do not attempt to interfere with or adjust the settings of the pool equipment, like pool heater, pool pump, valves or any related equipment.
• Tampering with the pool equipment could change the chemical composition of the water which has been balanced for your safety and enjoyment. It may also cause damage to the surface of the pool lining.
• We take every precaution to ensure that all pool equipment is properly maintained & serviced. In the event that there is an equipment failure during the rental period we will make every effort to repair it in a timely manner. A credit for pool heating will be given for the days following the notification of the malfunction, up until the time the malfunction is rectified.
NO credit will be given if the pool is unable to be heated up to the target temperature due to reasons beyond our control, such as cold weather or failure of the guest to use the pool blanket supplied. (See Pool blanket below).
In cold weather the water temperature in the pool can fall dramatically overnight and take a long time to recover to the target temperature. A pool blanket is provided to minimize the heat loss and keep the pool warm enough to use in comfort. It is the responsibility of the guest to employ the pool blanket when the pool is not in use for an extended period and particularly overnight.
Inflatables in the pool = Inflatables left in the pool under the hot sun can deflate and be sucked by the pool pump causing damage, breakage to the pump. This has happened before, so please I would ask you to remove the inflatables from the pool when not in use and keep them in a place (maybe under the lanai behind the table) where they are not directly under the heat and cannot be blown to the pool again.
Guest shall use the Property for residential purposes only and in a careful manner to prevent any damage or loss to the Property and keep the Property in clean and sanitary condition at all times. Guest and any additional permitted guests shall refrain from loud noise and shall not disturb, annoy, endanger, or inconvenience neighbours, nor shall Guest use the Property for any immoral, offensive or unlawful purposes, nor violate any law, association rules or ordinance, nor commit waste or nuisance on or about the Property.
If Guest should fail to comply with the conditions and obligations of this Agreement, Guest shall surrender the Property, remove all Guest’s property and belongings and leave the Property in good order and free of damage. No refund of any portion of the Total Rental Fee shall be made and if any legal action is necessary, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reimbursement from the other party for all costs incurred.
ASSIGNMENT OR SUBLEASE
Guest shall not assign or sublease the Property or permit the use of any portion of the Property by other persons who are not family members or guests of the Guest and included within the number of and as permitted occupants under this Agreement.
RISK OF LOSS AND INDEMNIFICATION
Guest agrees that all personal property, furnishings, personal affects and other items brought into the Property by Guest or their permitted guests and visitors shall be at the sole risk of Guest with regard to any theft, damage, destruction or other loss and Rental Agent shall not be responsible or liable for any reason whatsoever.
Guest hereby covenants and agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Rental Agent and their agents, owners, successors, employees and contractors from and against any costs, damages, liabilities, claims, legal fees and other actions for any damages, costs, attorneys fees incurred by Guest, permitted guests, visitors or agents, representatives or successors of Guest due to any claims relating to destruction of property or injury to persons or loss of life sustained by Guest or family and visitors of Guest in or about the Property and Guest expressly agrees to save and hold Rental Agent harmless in all such cases.
Guest hereby waives and releases any claims against Rental Agent, the Property owner and their successors, assigns, employees or representatives, officially or otherwise, for any injuries or death that may be sustained by Guest on or near or adjacent to the Property, including any common facilities, activities or amenities. Guest agrees to use any such facilities or amenities entirely at the Guest’s own initiative, risk and responsibility.
ENTRY AND INSPECTION
Rental Agent reserves the right to enter the Property at reasonable times and with reasonable advance notice for the purposes of inspecting the Property or showing the Property to prospective purchasers, renters or other authorized persons. If Rental Agent has a reasonable belief that there is imminent danger to any person or property, Rental Agent may enter the Property without advance notice.
