Please note that if you have a pet, you must declare in the inquiry and rental agreement since an additional charge of $70 for a non-refundable deposit and $25 for cleaning (totaling $95) applies. Also, additional guests (and any accompanying pets) who visit must be declared to factor into the rate for use of the home. The determination of occupancy is not limited to overnight guests only. Heavy kitchen usage must be declared since this requires cleanup beyond normal use charge and extra cleaning charges will apply due to extra time and associated expense which must be declared at the time of inquiry and confirmation agreement to allow for full planning, cleaning arrangements and time for home preparation for next guest arrival. Our cleaning list and inspection list provides for documentation of excessive home wear, tear and usage.
