If you have designated parking in a lot, please park carefully so as not to block an adjacent space or any ingress/egress for other homes or units. There are municipal parking lots & metered parking spaces throughout the town. Additionally, there is posted permit parking from 12:00AM to 4:30AM in certain areas. For rentals in these locations we offer parking permits for you or your guests use, and they are to be returned with your keys upon check-out.

Housekeeping and Maintenance: All rental homes are to be left in as good of condition as received & left in neat order.  Our property owners are instructed to hire professional cleaners to inspect & sanitize rentals between tenants. If you find any housekeeping or maintenance issues upon arrival, contact us immediately. We will schedule service as soon as possible. Each week homes are inspected by property owner or their house cleaner for damages or maintenance issues; however, breakdowns can and do occur. Please contact us if you experience any sort of maintenance problem during your stay.

Refrigerators: One of our most common calls - refrigerators typically can take up to a full day to get back to temperature. When guests check out and everything is removed, the "cold" is basically removed from the appliance. Resist the urge to turn settings to their coldest as this could damage the appliance. Packing with room temp items is also not recommended.
