This contract is an agreement between the Guest and Luxury Coastal Vacations (LCV) who is acting as the owner’s representative for referenced rental property. Cancellations within the first 24 hours will be allowed subject to a $25 administrative fee. All other policies set forth in this agreement become effective at time of booking and are agreed upon between the renter and LCV once the confirmation email is sent. After 24 hours, all terms and conditions apply. Additionally, entrance into property at check-in constitutes full acceptance of all terms of this agreement between Owner or Owners Representative and Guest.
OWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY: Owner agrees to provide unit in a clean, decent and sanitary condition on arrival of renter. Renter accepts condo as is, and as shown on our website (changes in decor, bedding, furnishings may change without notice). Upon arrival, please inspect condo and notify owner of any problems. Please report any housekeeping issues within 3 hours of arrival so LCV can promptly address issues. Renter agrees to give owner and LCV a reasonable amount of time to resolve any problems that may be encountered on arrival or during stay at property. On some rare occasions, the condo may not be cleaned before your check-in, by inadvertent fault of cleaners. If condo is not cleaned with fresh towels and linens upon check-in to our condo or if you find any other problem(s), Renter agrees to call LCV immediately, so that we may fix problem(s), as deemed necessary by LCV and/or Owner and at LCV/Owner's sole discretion. Housekeeping refunds/adjustments will not be given for unit cleaning issues unless they are not corrected after LCV has been notified and given a reasonable opportunity to remedy.
CHECK-IN: Check-in begins at 4PM. During peak summer periods, check in may be delayed due to our commitment to providing a clean and inspected unit. If you plan to arrive after 4PM please email us at email@example.com so we can best prioritize the cleaning schedule and be able to spend extra time preparing your rental. Please note, if you enter the rental before check-in time during our peak seasons (March through August) without approval, a $200 early check-in fee will be charged to the card on file.
CHECK-OUT: Check out is at 10AM. Please give us a call at 877-859-0113 if you will be departing early so we can schedule housekeeping accordingly. Any late departures (after 10AM) will be subject to a charge of an additional day, which Guest acknowledges and authorizes to be automatically charged to the credit card on file. Please be sure to refer to and follow the Departure Instructions that will be provided prior to arrival. Missing items (such as keys, arm bands, parking passes, fobs, lanyards, etc) will be charged to Guest. Lost keys will additionally result in locksmith re-keying services that will be charged to Guest. Owner/LCV is not responsible for items left in the unit, but LCV will be happy to return lost items when found if requested (items will be shipped for a $5.00 handling fee plus actual shipping costs). Items found will be only be kept for 30 days.
AFTER HOURS EMERGENCIES, SERVICE CALLS, AND LOCKOUTS: Contact Luxury Coastal Vacations at 850-332-5120 in the event of an after-hours emergency. Service calls made necessary by actions of Guests/Visitors shall be solely at Guest expense and will charged to the credit card on file or deducted from the security deposit including, but not limited to: lockouts, clogging toilets with moist wipes or other non-flushable items, not leaving key in lock box, or otherwise not accommodating unit access during scheduled time. Any such service calls will result in a minimum $40 service call fee, higher for after hours, weekends or extended repairs.
PETS AND SMOKING: PLEASE NOTE- Pets and smoking are not allowed in rental property (including balconies and patios), and renter agrees not to bring pets into unit or smoke in condo, balconies, service halls or elevators, or any other indoor or prohibited outdoor area. Any evidence indicating violation of these terms as deemed by owner/management will result in a minimum $500 fine charged to your credit card/deducted from security deposit plus any additional damage costs or cleaning fees that may be incurred. Any posted non-smoking signs on resort grounds should also be strictly obeyed, and guests can only smoke in designated smoking areas (if available.) Smoking in a prohibited area will result in a fine imposed by the resort. Smoke detectors inside the resort buildings, particularly but not limited to elevators, are sensitive to any airborne particulates (cigarette/cigar smoke or vapors, aerosol spray, water vapor, etc.) and are easily triggered due to the small confinements and close proximity of detectors, which creates a false alarm. Triggering any indoor alarms, regardless of substance will resort in a fine imposed by the resort. Unless otherwise noted, pets (including pets belonging to non-paying guests temporarily visiting unit) are at no time permitted within the rental property, nor permitted anywhere on the property unless the resort/complex is “Pet Friendly” and you have registered the pet with our office, the Pet Addendum is executed and the per pet, non-refundable pet fee has been paid. Any indication of any pet being on the property without prior approval and payment of the pet fee will result in a $500 per pet fee on your credit card/deducted from your security deposit plus any additional damages or cleaning fees that may have been incurred. If we are called out by a complaint of your pet disturbing the neighbors you will be charged a service call fee of $50 and may be asked to vacate the property with no refunds, in addition to the above penalties. Smoking or any pet found in a Non-Pet-Friendly unit is a clear violation of this Agreement and will result in immediate eviction from the property with no refund, whatsoever, of payments made. Smoking or unapproved pets in any Luxury Coastal Vacations unit will result in a minimum $500 fee.

Additional housekeeping services during your stay are available for a fee.

We ask that sheets are not stripped from the beds, and that any used beds be left unmade. Please do not leave wet items in the washing machine, as linens are laundered off-site.

If these items are not completed, guest authorizes Luxury Coastal Vacations to charge a minimum fee of $25 to guest credit card.
