- Photograph on your arrival. Record the overall condition of the rental unit right away. If you find problems, or if fixes are required call the property manager immediately.
- When there's any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the house, condo access, swimming pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the rental home manager promptly. A brief phone call avoids many hassles.
- Please be considerate of the local community. Often, neighboring homes are lived in by permanent residents. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking rules can make a visit a little more relaxing.
- Ask a local. Local residences can often point you in the right direction. Who better to ask where to get the best pizza, have a great night out, or the best areas for night life?
- Make sure you protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental locked up when you are away, exactly like you would at home.
When its Time to Leave
- Clean up a lttle bit. Even if you're paying a cleaning fee, The vacation rental needs to be in sound condition. Kitchen sinks filled with dishes, substantial sand on the floors and sticky messes should really be dealt with before you leave.
- Make a point to walk through the rental home one last time and check for property damage. We recommend walking through with the rental manager whenever you can (often this isn't possible).. If the property owner is not available, make sure that you take photos of the property to record its condition.
- Did you have a blast? Many rental management companies and rental home sites make it easy for renters to give feedback. If the property and/or property manager was top-notch, they will appreciate your compliments. If something went wrong and they didn't fix it in a acceptable manner, or when the rental was not as described, you'll want to make it a point in your review.
