exceeding the maximum occupancy of the home will result in requiring that the Renter and occupants immediately vacate the property without recourse. Refunds of any deposits or payments will not be issued, and any costs associated with the Renter being evicted will be charged to the credit card on file and/or pursued by legal means.

During Your Stay

• We have a strict NO smoking and NO pet policy in all of our properties. If there is evidence of smoking or the presence of a pet on the premises, your security deposit will be forfeited in full. In addition, an extra cleaning fee to remove stains and odor will be charged to guests who are found to be in violation of these policies.

• Lavistays homes are self-catering properties. We provide our guests with a small quantity of essentials such as toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, dishwasher soap, and laundry soap. Guests are responsible for supplementing these with their own supplies. Grocery stores such as Wal-Mart and Publix stores are within 1 to 3 miles of each property.

• Linens and towels are provided by the Owner and are not to be removed from property.

• The property you have rented may have a spa, hot tub, or pool on premises. Children must always be supervised by adults when using rental home pool facilities and resort amenities. No running, diving or horseplay in pool areas is allowed. Glass is not permitted in any pool areas.

• Guests are expected to leave the home in a reasonably similar degree of cleanliness in which it was found when you checked in. Should you find the property to be inadequately clean upon arrival,
contact the Property Owner immediately, so we can rectify the situation.

• In case a problem should arise while you are occupying the home, the Renter should immediately contact the Property Owner, who will work to resolve the matter in a reasonable and timely manner.

• There is no daily housekeeping service provided in your rental rate. The home will be thoroughly cleaned by a professional cleaning company prior to check-in. However, cleaning services during your stay can be arranged for an additional fee.
