Do not leave any food and trash on the outdoor porch and patio because bears and other critters may get into it and cause damage or harm to your party or spread trash through the neighborhood.  Dispose of all trash in the trash cans located at the side of the house, during daylight hours. Do not allow trash to overflow. Please put trash cans at road's edge the night before  for pickup on MONDAYS and THURSDAYS and then return cans to the side of the house.  HOA requires that trash cans not be left out by the road (fines will be passed on to guest)

While we do strive to offer some amenities to get you off on the right foot, these are not meant to last the duration of your stay. We are excited to share our personal home with you; this is not a hotel so we do not replenish these items or offer housekeeping during your stay.  Please expect that you may need additional toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, coffee, etc. Please bring/purchase your own personal toiletries, condiments, oil + spices, ziplock bags, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, bottled water, etc.


Wildlife and pest encounters may happen: these are at your own risk and we are not liable to compensate you for these encounters that occur during your stay. Believe it or not, black bears are found in the Florida Panhandle, including our neighborhood.  Bears are DANGEROUS. Please put garbage outside ONLY in the  trash cans on the side of the house during the day (don't leave out overnight, this can attract bears). Please be responsible and deter unwanted wildlife where possible by not leaving food, compost, or birdseed outside that attracts wildlife, insects and other pests. Please be aware that we perform regular pest control, but given the location of the home, you may see or encounter bugs and/or wildlife while in the home or neighborhood, including but not limited to: ants, bugs, birds, bees, wasps, bats, mosquitoes, spiders, snakes, fireflies, butterflies, beetles,skunks, raccoons, black bears, etc. Bug spray is recommended in warmer months. 

In certain seasons, the climate does cause a lot of bugs. Please make sure all doors and windows are closed when not in use. We perform regular pest maintenance, but there is no perfect solution to keep a Southern beach home completely bug-free.

Electricity, internet, and/or cable services may get interrupted during storms and other issues beyond our control. These disruptions are rare and services usually resume after a couple of hours. We cannot offer refunds for outages.

We are unable to offer refunds due to any type of inclement weather, including hurricane warnings/evacuations.  We do strongly encourage the purchase of trip insurance. 

A refundable $750 security deposit is collected as a credit card HOLD to pay for extra cleaning fees, repairs, or damages caused by you and your guests during your stay. This hold will be released within a week of your departure.  A cleaning fee of $525 per stay is also charged at booking.

Guest must sign Rental Agreement, provide identification, and provide credit card (for security deposit hold). Request to book this property constitutes your agreement with all House Rules. 
Renter must be at least 25 years of age and there must be one adult in per 3 children. 
This is NOT a party house or "Spring Break" house for teenagers, college students, fraternities, sororites etc and if this is the type of group you have, it is essential that you book elsewhere.
