Your vacation property will be cleaned to quality standards prior to your arrival and after your departure. Maid service is not provided during your stay. You are responsible for cleaning your vacation property during your stay and for leaving the property in good condition at check-out For example: wash the dishes, clean up spilled milk, juice, candy wrappers etc. Clean up a sticky floor. Put the iron and ironing board back in its proper place. Take all the trash to the dumpster. If the property is left damaged, unusually dirty and messy, you will forfeit your security deposit and will be charged additional fees to offset the expense of cleaning and/or repairs.
Refrigerator: Please do not overload the refrigerator with drink cans and bottles. Please do not reset the refrigerator setting to a low setting for a “quick cool” for drinks. This can cause problems with the refrigerator and restricts the refrigerator from cooling properly. If a service repairman is required, then the charges will be deducted from the security deposit. If the charges exceed the deposit, then additional payment is required by the guest.
Washer/Dryer: Please thoroughly shake out the sand from beach towels and swimsuits before washing/drying them in the washing machine. Sand causes problems in washer/dryers and a repairman may be required. If a repairman is required, then the charges will be deducted from the security deposit. If the charges exceed the deposit, then additional payment is required by the guest.
Please do not take the property’s bath towels or linens to the beach. Please bring your own beach towels. If beach towels or other colorful items are wash/dried with the property’s towels/linens, then replacement charges of the affected towels/linens will be deducted from the security deposit. If the charges exceed the deposit, then additional payment is required by the guest.
Linens/Towels/Supplies. The property provides basic towels/linens and starter supply of trash liners, bathroom paper and soap. However, guests will need to provide their own laundry detergent, additional paper products and household supply items for their stay.
Trash Disposal. Please place trash in trash bags and dispose of trash at the dumpster at the resort during your stay. Maravilla Resort homes and Beach Retreat Cottages are offered EARLY MORNING trash pick up on Monday and Thursday. Otherwise, please dispose of your trash at the dumpster during your stay.

The condo or home must be left in good condition. All soiled dishes must be washed in the dishwasher or by hand prior to departure. Owners typically reserve the right to retain partial or full security deposit for late departure, carpet cleaning or additional housekeeping services due to guest’s lack of care or respect for privately owned properties. Additional charges may apply to offset deep cleaning, damage and/or theft. Please treat the property with care and the neighbors with courtesy.
The vacation properties may have a locked closet(s) that is reserved for storage for the owner’s personal items. The locked closet is NOT included in the rental.
I value putting the right deal together vs. simply pursuing a commission or fee.
The Manager, Tenant and Owner have to be willing to enter into forthright and honest business dealings.
There are Property/Owner situations, however rare, that have to be avoided and in the past I have actually returned properties when circumstances dictated.
