Sorry to say because of abuse by a few guests, we are requiring a $1000 security deposit for your stay. This will be promptly refunded to you after your departure if all is loss, no damage and specifically - no additional persons (above 8 unless authorized), no additional cars over 4 and no extended parties/events. Apologize, but a few negligent persons have caused this. I am at risk of losing my license with Santa Cruz County for a vacation rental if I do not comply with occupancy, car, noise restrictions. Any non- compliance with these clearly explained guidelines will result in full loss of your security deposit and/or you will be asked to leave the premises.
