If you need my phone number or email address, please let me know; I will be happy to send it to you! Not providing this information BEFORE you arrive will impede your ability to enter the property and could cause a cancellation of your stay. If you are uncomfortable with providing this information, you may choose to cancel the reservation in accordance with the cancellation policy as stated in the reservation. **We will not provide a refund for guests who do not read and understand the instructions that are provided to them before they book.

OCCUPANCY: Guest acknowledges and agrees that city code and fire safety laws restrict occupancy to no more than 12 persons. Number of guests in the Rental Agreement must include all adults and children. Guest and all Guest’s visitors & guests shall comply with the same conditions and restrictions imposed upon Guest under Short Term Rental Agreement.

NOISE: Quiet time is regulated by ordinance of the City of Deerfield Beach. It is enforced from 9pm to 7am. Daytime family-style gatherings and barbeques are premitted.

If evidence of any unapproved/undisclosed animal presence is discovered, including an animal owned by someone other than the guest, Guests will be subject up to a $100 per day animal fee and may be required to vacate the property immediately, with the rent and deposit money forfeited. If an animal is approved in advance, all adult Guests staying at Mermaid Bay will be required to sign a separate Waiver in person, which outlines the risk, rules, & responsibilities to which the owner and animal must abide. This waiver is available upon request for review before booking.

PARKING: Parking is limited to the driveway and curb in front of the house only, which can very easily fit 6 cars or more. Street parking by neighbors’ houses is prohibited. No parking on the grass.

PLUMBING: Tampons & personal wipes must be disposed of in the trash. Even the “flushable” kind- they will most definitely clog the toilet and render the bathroom unusable until we can get a plumber.


NO SMOKING OR CANDLE LIGHTING PERMITTED: If evidence of indoor smoking is discovered, an additional $300.00 cleaning fee to remove the smell will be required.

Mermaid Bay is provided in “as is” condition. Rental Agent shall use its best efforts to ensure the operation of all amenities in Mermaid Bay, such as internet, Wi-Fi, internet TV access, pool, propane grill, etc., and all other listed or pictured amenities as applicable. Rental Agent shall not be held responsible for such listed items' failure to work, but will make every effort to correct any issues or replace non-working items as quickly as possible. Owner or rental agent must be notified immediately upon the discovery of any unacceptable condition. General condition of the property is considered ‘acceptable’ upon spending the first night on premises.

CONDITION AND SAFE USE OF PROPERTY: Guest acknowledges that there is no pool alarm or any pool security on the Property, and that guest is solely responsible for his or her own safety as well as that of any children and visitors. Mermaid Bay is not childproof. There are breakables, toxic cleaning materials, choking hazards, unsecured electrical plugs and cabinets, and other hazards within reach of small children. Parent/Guardian assumes all risk. Children must never be left unattended.

Use of any such (for example, the stove, pool, or grill) amenities outlined above and any other part of the property may be dangerous and involve potential risks if improperly used, particularly with regard to children. Such use is solely at the Guest’s own risk. Guest shall use Mermaid Bay for Residential purposes only and in a careful manner to prevent any damage or loss to Mermaid Bay. Guest agrees to keep the property in clean and sanitary condition at all times. Guest shall not use Mermaid Bay for any immoral, offensive, or unlawful purpose, nor violate any law, rule, or ordinance, nor commit waste or nuisance on or about Mermaid Bay.

Do not rearrange the furniture or accessories. You will be charged a mover's fee of $350 to rearrange back to its place in addition to being held responsible for any damage that's caused.

Please keep the outside gate closed and latched to prevent outside access to the pool by children & pets.

CHECK IN CHECK OUT: Check in is any time between 3:00 PM & 10PM local time and check out is at or before 10:00 AM local time.

Unless otherwise pre-arranged, late check outs are subject to docking of the deposit by the hour ($25/hour). Because we often have same day bookings, we normally have to accomplish an immediate, expeditious turnover.

Access to the home is obtained via keypad code, which becomes activated at check-in time, and deactivated at check-out.

SECURITY DEPOSIT: Security/Rental Deposit (as applicable) will be refunded less than 14 days after check-out if there are no damages, losses, or excessive cleaning required. Excessive cleaning, for example, could entail having to paint or patch a wall, clean a seat cover or carpet stain, remove the smell of smoke, or flea remediation, or hiring specialized help to clean an extraordinary or biological mess. Any such biological mess will be subject to a $300 cleaning fee, in addition to a possible replacement cost of the item.

INSURANCE: We HIGHLY RECOMMEND obtaining your own Travel/Cancellation Insurance and/or Renter’s Insurance for your trip. Just as with any other travel plan or vacation, cancellations may occur due to sickness, accidents, severe weather events or forecasts, such as with hurricane warnings, impact, or aftermath. It’s rare, but official, mandatory evacuations do happen sometimes. Rental Agent does not offer coverage to compensate for the cost or inconvenience that such unforeseen events can have on vacation plans.

FAILURE TO COMPLY: If Guest, Guest's family, Guest's guests, Guest's animal(s), or Guest's visitors damage the property or fail to comply with the conditions and obligations of this Agreement, Guest shall immediately surrender the Property, remove all personal belongings and leave the Property in good order and free of damage. No refund of any portion of the Total Rental Fee shall be made, and the Rental Agent shall be entitled to damages, reimbursement, and legal fees from the Guest for all costs and lost revenue incurred, without regard to the security deposit already made. The amount of the security deposit does not limit Guest's obligation to reimburse the Rental Agent for damages, fees, and costs.

RISK OF LOSS AND INDEMNIFICATION: Guest agrees that all Guests’ personal property, furnishings, personal effects, animal(s), and other items brought into Mermaid Bay by Guest or Guest’s family or Guest’s guests shall be at the sole risk of Guest with regard to any theft, damage, destruction, injury, or any other loss, and Rental Agent, Mermaid Bay owner and/or their agents, family, successors, assigns, employees, or representatives, shall not be responsible or liable for any reason whatsoever. Guest hereby covenants and agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Rental Agent, Beach-day Properties Inc, and Mermaid Bay owner and their family, successors, assigns, employees, contractors, or representatives from and against any costs, damages, liabilities, claims, legal fees and other actions for any damages, costs, attorney’s fees incurred by Guest, Guest's family, Guest's guests, Guest's visitors, Guest's animals, or agents, representatives, family, close friends, fiancées, partners, or successors of Guest due to any claims relating to loss, damage, or destruction of property, injury to persons or animal(s), or loss of life sustained by Guest, Guest's family, Guest's animal(s), and/or Guest's visitors in or about Mermaid Bay. Guest expressly agrees to save and hold Rental Agent harmless in any and all such cases. Guest assumes all risk and responsibility.

Rental Agent has no control what-so-ever over fees charged or fees refunded by the listing agent and may be unable to effectively intervene on the Guest’s behalf.

RELEASE: Guest hereby waives and releases any claims against Rental Agent, Mermaid Bay owner and their agents, family, close friends, fiancées, successors, assigns, employees, or representatives, officially or otherwise, for any injuries or death that may be sustained by Guest, Guest's family, Guest's animal(s), or Guests' visitors on or near or adjacent to Mermaid Bay, including any common or private facilities, activities, or amenities. Guest agrees and accepts that use of any such facilities or amenities is entirely at the Guest’s own initiative, risk, and responsibility.

ENTRY AND INSPECTION: Rental Agent reserves the right to enter Mermaid Bay at reasonable times with reasonable advance notice for the purposes of inspecting or maintaining the property. If Rental Agent has a belief that there is imminent danger to person or property, Rental Agent may enter Mermaid Bay without advance notice.

UNAVAILABILITY OF PROPERTY: Availability is real time and could change after a quote is given. Property is not reserved until deposit (or full balance) is paid and booking is accepted. If Mermaid Bay becomes unavailable during the Rental Term due to personal, unforeseen events or circumstances, Rental Agent will apply due diligence and good faith efforts to locate a replacement property that equals or exceeds Mermaid Bay with respect to capacity, location and value that meets the reasonable satisfaction of the Guest. If such replacement property can’t be found, Rental Agent shall offer to rebook during another time period acceptable to Guest. If none of these conditions can be met, then Rental Agent shall immediately return all payments made by the Guest, whereupon this Agreement shall be terminated and Guest and Rental Agent shall have no further obligations or liabilities in any manner pertaining to this Agreement.

Reservations made under false pretenses (for example using fake names, fake ID, fake credit card information, or false number of guests) will be deemed canceled and everyone in their party will be denied entry to Mermaid Bay; if Guests are already checked in, their stay will be terminated and they will be required to vacate the property immediately. No refund of any kind will be given under such circumstances.

GENERAL PROVISIONS: This Short Term Rental Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties with regard to the rental of Mermaid Bay, and any changes, amendments, or modifications hereafter shall be void unless the same are in writing and signed by both the Guest and the Rental Agent, such as any rules & conditions that are agreed to in the Animal Addendum should the Guest seek permission for an Animal. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida. The words “Rental Agent” and “Guest” shall each include their respective heirs, family, close friends, fiancées, partners, and/or successors, and/or representatives. The waiver or failure to enforce any breach or provision of this Agreement shall not be considered a waiver of that or any other provision in any subsequent breach thereof. If any provision herein is held invalid, the remainder of the Agreement shall not be affected.

NOTICE: Any notice required to be given under this Agreement shall be in writing and given in person and/or sent to Guest’s known contact information email or text. This Agreement may be signed in one or more counterparts, each of which is an original, but taken together constitute one in the same instrument.

Upon execution of payment or digital signature , this document shall be deemed a valid agreement.
