Cleaning Deposit: $200, all refundable if reasonable checklist is completed (or, you can just leave, and I'll clean it).
Security Deposit: $1,000 check, which I will not cash unless you do something egregious. In that event, I'll charge you for whatever damage you do, and refund to you the rest. I hope I'll never cash one of these--which I won't, unless someone does something remarkable.
Kids, dogs, cats all welcome!
Smoking is OK on the patio or the deck, but not in the house.
