Home (literally)

House Rules:

Summary: Quiet hours 10 pm - 7 am
Renters must leave the unit CLEAN and ready for next tenants, including laundering sheets and towels. Washer/dryer and cleaning supplies provided. You may prepay a cleaning fee ($50), if you choose to not clean the unit when you leave. This must be scheduled in advance, so I can schedule a cleaner. The unit is the upstairs of a private home in a quiet, residential community. The unit has private parking, private stairs and deck, private entrance. It is clean and comfortable, but it is not fancy.

Details: Check-in: 3:00 pm -------------- Check-out: 11:00 am

Before check-out, all items on the "Check-out Checklist" (posted in the unit) must be completed.

Rental Rules
1. Absolutely no smoking inside. If you smoke on the deck, make sure door remains closed, so smoke does not blow into the inside. If you smoke outside, dispose of butts appropriately.
2. Report any issues so we can fix them! We don’t know unless you tell us :) 3. When grilling, do so away from the house and vegetation. If it’s a charcoal grill, dump coals in dirt pit, making sure hot coals are safe.
4. Do not wash sandy articles in the washer; sand will destroy the washer AND the septic system. Please shake well outside before washing.
5. Rinse or towel off sand outside before showering. There is a hose on the side of the house.

Cleaning Checklist (You may clean yourself, or I will clean for $50 out of your deposit - your choice! Please let me know, so I can have it ready for the next folks!)
1. Clean kitchen - wipe fridge, microwave, dishes, counters, sink, floor.
2. Clean bathroom - toilet, sink, shower, countertop, floor, mirror.
3. Wash sheets and towels and fold. Do not put them back on the bed.
4. Wipe down all counters, tables and mirrors.
5. Sweep floors. Mop if needed.
6. Vacuum carpet.
7. Make the house look like somewhere you’d be happy to be.
8. If any furniture was moved, replace to original positions .
9. If you would like to leave food/condiments in the refrigerator (not leftovers), or household items, I’d rather see things used than thrown away! 10. Take trash and recycling to the cans by the main driveway.

Pet Policy: Well-behaved, well-trained, parasite-free adult dogs are allowed.
1. Clean up after your pet - inside and out. It is fine to toss dog poop into the woods, as long as it’s off the grass/yard.
2. You may leave your pet unattended in the unit ONLY if it is kenneled or if you are certain it will not damage anything or bark incessantly. You must bring your own kennel, if you need one.
3. Any cleaning or damage costs will be taken out of your deposit.
Payment and Cancellation Policy: A 50% deposit is required within 7 days of booking. The balance, plus 15% taxes & fees and $100 refundable security deposit is required 30 days prior to arrival . If the room/apartment is cancelled at least 60 days prior to arrival, 100% of deposit will be refunded. 30-59 days, 50% refund. Less than 30 days prior to arrival, no refund. In the event of personal emergencies, I can't guarantee anything. But I'll make every effort to book you another period (free of additional charge), if one is available that fits your schedule. The replacement must be of equal or less value. Don't worry about hurricanes. If there is a mandatory evacuation of Roanoke Island, a pro-rated refund will be given for each day the evacuation is in effect.

Smoking Policy - Smoking is NOT ALLOWED indoors in any rooms/apartments. If you must smoke, please choose a spot outside and a reasonable distance from doorways (yours and others) so the smoke doesn't drift inside. (Don't leave the door open- for the same reason...) And, make sure you dispose of butts properly. Security deposits will be held for cleaning if the room smells like smoke when you leave.
