Description of Rental Property:
The Rental Property consists of a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house.
Luxury linens and towels are provided. Bed linen and bath towels will not be changed during the Rental Period. Laundry facilities are provided, and it is up to the Tenant and other registered occupants to wash the linen and towels during the Rental Period. Owner will provide a sufficient supply of toilet tissue and trash bags, based on the number of registered occupants; however, there is no guarantee that the supply of any of these items will be enough to last to the end of the Rental Period. Any additional items must be provided by Tenant at Tenant’s sole expense.
Notice to Owner of Repairs Needed:
If the Rental Property or any of the contents are damaged, not working or otherwise in need of repair or replacement, the Tenant must promptly notify the Owner. The Owner will have a reasonable amount of time to make repairs. If the Tenant must vacate the premises because of damage not resulting from the Tenant’s act or neglect, the Tenant will be refunded the rent for such period of time that the Tenant is unable to occupy the Rental Property, prorated on a per diem basis commencing on the date that the Tenant was forced to vacate and calculated to the date on which the Tenant was able to re-occupy the Rental Property or the end of the Rental Period, whichever comes first. If the Rental Property is totally destroyed, this Rental Agreement will terminate and the Tenant will pay rent up to the date of destruction.
The Owner is not responsible for any inconvenience or interruption of services due to repairs, improvements, or any reason beyond the Owner’s control, and no refund will be given in this event. Tenant understands and agrees that Owner may enter the Rental Property at any time for the purpose of making needed repairs.
If the Tenant does not show up within twenty-four (24) hours following the Check-In Time, and has failed to contact the Owner regarding any delay in arrival, the Tenant will be considered a “no show” and shall be liable to the Owner for the total amount of the Rent and other charges as set out in this Agreement.
In the event that Tenant’s reservation for the Rental Property is double booked with the reservation of another tenant, Owner reserves the right to relocate Tenant to a different rental property within the Owner’s rental program or that of another company. Every effort will be made to ensure that the replacement property is reasonably comparable to the original Rental Property. Owner shall have the sole right to select such replacement rental property. Owner agrees to pay any additional charges due in excess of the rental amount for the Rental Property, and refund any amounts paid by Tenant in excess of the rental amount for the replacement property. Tenant will have the option to (i) accept the replacement property or (ii) reject the replacement property and receive a refund of all rents and fees paid for the Rental Property. Tenant agrees that Tenant’s choice between these two options will be Tenant’s sole remedy for any and all damages, liability, or inconvenience arising out of the double booking.
