Now For Some Really (Important but) Boring things:
Sleeping/Occupancy: We have set the maximum number for vacationers
at our apartment at 4 persons. Babies count as people so yes, they do count in
the maximum number. Pets, as nice & well behaved as they
are, do not count because they are not allowed.
Please note: We operate on a trust-based
system, meaning you trust us to provide a clean, family-friendly
vacation home & we trust you to honor our maximum occupancy. If
you choose to exceed the maximum number of people, we will retain your
security deposit. This is because you are not operating on the
same system of trust & we want to insure you do not come back.
in / Check out: Your check-in time is at 2 PM.
Check out is at 10 AM. If we are
not at the home, please leave the key where you found it, in it’s
prearranged spot or returned to the realtor.
Don't forget to put the beach tags with the keys in the boat
where you found them. We will be
checking the home between stays. Once
checked and confirmed that you’ve left it the way you have found it,
your security/cleaning deposit will be returned.
What we mean by "Clean Up": Please leave our home
the way that you found it, clean & swept, with trash put out, dishes
put away, etc. Just so you know, our rates DO NOT cover cleaning.
If you'd prefer to pay more to cover cleaning, please let us
know. We'd be happy to
arrange a service to come in & clean.
Bed Linens &
Towels: We do not provide
bed linens, beach or bath towels. There are service providers on
the island who do. Please Google this
service for rates & payment information.
Tags: We have left 2 beach tags for your use.
Children 12 & above need to wear tags on
the beach. If one should
break, please exchange it at a beach tag station for a new one.
If you should lose one or all of them, please replace it/them so
that the next vacationer is able to enjoy them.
If a tag should go home with you, we will deduct the cost of the tag
from your deposit so that the next vacationer has it to use on Saturday.
We do provide wireless
internet & will send you the password prior to your vacation.
Trash is collected on Monday and Thursday, generally pretty
early. Please place your
in-house trash outside in the cans by the night before and place the
cans by the curb. Would you
also bring the cans back in after collection?
Outside shower & Grills: These items are
shared between the two units. There are two grills and one shower.
Please use one grill & if the outside shower is in use, please don't try
recycles GLASS, PLASTIC & CANS as well as NEWSPAPERS.
Glass, plastic & cans can be commingled.
Please be kind and have as much of your trash collected (picked
up) before your departure so that the cans are “empty” for the next
person. Thank you for your
participation in saving the ecology!
We are fined if recycling is not done.
Your security or cleaning deposit will reflect that fine or the
cost for sorting your trash if you choose not to participate in
We have attempted to make the home “child-friendly” by adding the
gate on the front porch but children still need to be watched.
Games & other items: We have left
a few games, for your convenience.
Please do not take these items down to the beach or away from the
Out Menus: Take out menus are located in the drawer of the microwave
For the comfort of everyone, we prefer that smoking be done outside.
PLEASE place the butts in the trash, not in the garden, or on the
Energy & Water: We’ve added central air for your convenience.
Please don’t turn the air down & open the windows.
Ocean City is very costly. To
help us keep our rental pricing down, please do not leave water on while
it is not being used (i.e. letting the shower warm up).
We have enclosed the outside shower to aid in water reduction.
Feel free to shower there, if you like.
Have a wonderful vacation!
