Check Out Procedures

At departure please remove all trash from the home and wash any dishes either in the dishwasher or in the sink. Don’t worry about the linens and towels, are housekeeping teams will take care of it.

Keys must be returned to our office. Many units have additional keys, gate or garage door controls, passes, etc. that are expensive to replace. We cannot stress enough the importance of returning keys properly, so a charge is not incurred for lost or improperly returned keys.

What We Consider to be Excessive


An excessive amount of Trash.  (Anything that exceeds the supplied containers or trash left throughout the property)

Dirty pots, pans, plates or silverware should not be left in the sinks or on the counters

Pet debris if Rental Agreement states a pet is permitted

Bodily fluids/hazardous matter

CARPETS: Every effort is made to keep the carpet in good clean condition for all our
guests and owners. Guests will be responsible for any excessive soiling of the carpets
and substantial stains created during their stay, including professional carpet cleaning (to ensure the carpet is sanitized for all guests and owners) for the clean-up of vomit, feces, urine, wine or other substantial soiling or health hazards. Please remove shoes if they are dirty and clean up carefully to avoid additional carpet cleaning charges. TO AVOID CHARGES, REPORT ALL DAMAGES UPON ARRIVAL IMMEDIATELY.
