This listing and rental agreement provides important rules and regulations for guests staying on a property. Here's a summary of the key points:

Age Requirement: Guests must be at least 25 years old to book this property, and they must be a guest staying at the property during the rental period.

Additional Guests: No "visitors" are allowed unless they are listed in your reservation as staying in the property for liability reasons.

Damages: Report any missing or damaged items promptly. The owner is not responsible for loss of money, valuables, or personal property.

Refunds: No refunds or discounts will be given for mechanical failures, malfunctioning/closure of amenities, or inclement weather.

Smoking: Smoking is not allowed in the property, including the balcony. Evidence of smoking will result in the loss of the security deposit and additional cleaning costs. Please use designated smoking areas.

Security Deposit: If the home is damaged or violation issued, the renter may be charged up to the full security and/or insurance amount. A $500 security deposit "HOLD" is required, collected separately by the property owner before check-in. It will be released within 48 hours if there was no damage/violation.

Pet Policy: Pets are not allowed. However, if they are located on property it will result in loss of security deposit and removal from the property without refund.

Quiet Hours: Quiet hours are between 10:00 PM and 9:00 AM. Please respect the neighbors.

Nature Caution: Be aware that Southern Alabama has various native animals. Use caution to protect yourself, other guests, and pets.

Rental Agreement: A rental agreement will be sent upon booking, and failure to sign and return it within 48 hours of booking will result in the cancellation of your reservation.

Date Changes: Changes in dates are not allowed within 30 days of the scheduled check-in. Your cancelation policy will apply.

A/C and Windows/Doors: Do not leave windows/doors open while the air conditioner is on, as it may cause smoke alarms to go off and the A/C to freeze up.

Sand Management: Rinse sand from feet, clothes, towels, and beach items before entering the house. Excess sand in indoor pipes can cause backups.

Towel Etiquette: Do not hang towels or clothing items from the balcony railing.

Wet Clothing: Do not sit or lay on furniture or beds with wet clothing, as chlorine and salt may bleach fabrics.

Grinder Pump: The house utilizes a grinder pump. If the light under the house flashes, notify the host immediately. Only flush toilet paper down the toilet; other paper products may cause backups and result in plumbing service calls.

Security and Privacy Note:
A ring doorbell has been installed at the front door and is active and recording audio and video at all times. Tampering with the doorbell will result in immediate removal from the property.

Compliance with Local Ordinances:
The agreement references specific city ordinances (No. 1809 and No. 2016-1220) that outline seven reasons for removing guests from the property, all of which are stated within the agreement. These reasons include illegal possession of controlled substances, disruptive behavior, illegal possession of alcohol, disturbing neighbors, misconduct causing property damage, exceeding maximum occupancy (yes, that includes guests' visitors or those "stopping by"), and failure to check out on time. Violating these ordinances or house rules may result in a loss of security deposit and/or immediate removal from the property without refund.

It's crucial for guests to read and understand these rules and regulations before booking and staying on the property to ensure a smooth and trouble-free experience while respecting the property owner's requirements and local ordinances.

At Westwind, your Gulf front oasis, we invite you to relax, unwind, and make lasting beachfront memories. Your coastal adventure awaits!

Cancellation Policy: Eighty percent (80.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 60 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. For cancellations made within 60 days prior to the arrival date, no refund will be issued.
