NO REFUNDS FOR EARLY DEPARTURES OR EVICTIONS!!
Pets of any variety are not allowed and will cause a $300 fine to be charged to the renter’s card on file. This is because many of our guests are allergic to pet dander and we must use extraordinary methods to clean the unit after a pet is discovered in the unit. Additionally, some resorts are Not Pet Friendly for all units and impose their own fines and fees if they are discovered.
Renter agrees to maintain the cleanliness of the premises during the occupancy and to leave the premises in good condition upon departure. While we do not expect the renter to leave the unit spotlessly clean, we do expect the following to be done: 1. ALL trash should be removed from the unit, there are trash chutes on every floor. 2. Put all dirty dishes into the dishwasher, add automatic dishwashing cleaner and turn on. 3. If used, remove linens from sleeper sofa. If these housekeeping rules are not observed or the renter leaves the unit in an extremely dirty condition, a charge of $50/hour can be assessed on the renter’s card on file for additional maid service to clean unit for next guest.
Home & Condo Equipment
All homes and condos are privately owned and equipped for basic vacation needs. Bed linens/towels are provided in the unit as well as a starter supply of soap and toilet paper. You will need to bring or purchase additional supplies. Local calls are free from unit phone (if provided). Use a calling card or dial collect to place long distance calls.
Maintenance problems in the home or condo will be handled in a timely and professional manner. The rental rate will not be adjusted due to any malfunction of equipment, which includes TV’s, DVD’s, air condition units, hot water heaters, stoves, washer/dryers, refrigerators, door locks, etc.
The agent may enter the premises at any time in the event of emergency, but will use its best efforts to give 24-hour notice for normal maintenance or sales inspections. During Spring Break, the unit may be inspected during the course of the week to be sure that the occupants are cooperating with the rules related to excessive overnight guests, smoking and parties.
Each property has a specific maximum overnight occupancy. Take note of the maximum number of guests allowed for an overnight stay in the homes and condos before making your reservation. We STRICTLY limit the number of pool tags to the number of sleeping guests allowed in each unit and make no allowances for additional guests. Pool passes are required for all guests 12 years of age or older and are to be used while on resort property and as a means of identification when re-entering the property on foot. The renter can only have as many tags as the unit they are occupying will sleep. Pool tags are to be left on the hook in unit at checkout. Any tags not turned in at checkout will be deducted at a rate of $10/tag from the renter’s card on file. Pool tags are not necessary for children under 12 years as they are to be accompanied by an adult.
Our properties are located in residential areas and are rented for personal vacation and family use only. Parties and other large gatherings are not allowed in individual units. Violators risk forfeiture of their deposit, rental fees, and eviction. Units are closely monitored during Spring Break each year and documented evictions have occurred in some resorts for overcrowding and partying in individual units. While we encourage young adults to reserve our condominiums to enjoy the beach and the surrounding areas and venues of Spring Break entertainment, Kim’s Condos,LLC strives to provide clean, secure and comfortable condominiums for the quiet enjoyment or our clients and guests and will not tolerate annoying, unruly or uncivil behavior.
Although each property will be completely equipped for rental purposes, we cannot accept responsibility for aesthetic conflicts. We reserve the right to change units for any reason.
