Ocean Drive SW Cape
Wonderful, perfect for a relaxing getaway. So much to do in the general area. Sanibel island is just a short drive away, beautiful beach and can spend the entire day there with amazing food and shops in addition to the beach. Two great Marina's for dinner options or just watching the sunset. Publix (grocery store) is less than a mile from the house. You can spend the entire time at the house if you really wanted to. the pool is perfectly warm and relaxing, you can fish off the dock in the backyard and spot the occasional rabbit hoping in the yard. We truly enjoyed ourselves!

The following general provisions respecting the property should be noted:

Although we love animals all our properties are designated as "non pet friendly" by their homeowners. Any guests ignoring this rule may be asked to leave.

Where pool heating is provided by solar energy water temperature is determined by the ambient air temperature. Therefore no guarantee with respect to pool water temperature is possible or implied.

Swimming Pools are cleaned and serviced weekly. No responsibility can be accepted for dust, dirt or other incursion entering the pool water between cleans.

Cable and/or Internet TV is provided - the service level has been chosen by the homeowner. No refund shall be given for outages, lack of content, or personal preferences with regard to cable TV or Internet TV service.

High-speed wireless internet is provided as a convenience only and is not an integral part of the property rental contract. No refund will be given for outages, lack of content, speed, access problems or lack of streaming preferences with regard to the internet service.

The property is subject to regular insecticide treatment and as far as possible is screened against insect incursion. These treatments may leave some dead insects inside the property and this shall not be taken as a sign of any infestation.

For the benefit of all of our guests the property is designated as NON SMOKING and hirers should note that any contravention of this injunction will render them liable to excess cleaning charges associated with ridding the property of smoke, ash and odours that may have permeated the furnishings.

The rental property is situated in a mixed residential area and guests are therefore requested and expected to behave appropriately by avoiding noise or nuisance to other residents. Under State and Local laws nude or topless sunbathing is not permitted.

Mandatory evacuation - If state or local authorities order a mandatory evacuation of any area that Secret Places offers properties, due to a hurricane evacuation or other natural catastrophe, no refund of any monies paid will be available, nor will a stay be allowed at a later date. Secret Places strongly recommends trip interruption insurance.

15: Compensation

Any claim for compensation, including for "loss of enjoyment" must be reported whilst the clients are still in occupation. No claims will be entertained unless reported directly whilst the clients are still in occupation and good evidence exists that the managing agent have been given reasonable opportunity to rectify any issue giving rise to complaint.

The managing agent will endeavour to help guests with any problems they may encounter, however clients must be aware that the owners are not representatives or agents of any third party, including their tour operator and car hire company, and cannot be held responsible for any aspects of their vacation not directly related to the property rental.

In any claim for compensation the liability of the owner/agent shall not exceed the total amount paid by the hirer for the rental of the property.

Once your booking is confirmed, all agreements of the rental policy are in force. You understand that by booking your selected property you have agreed to follow the outlined terms and conditions above.
