No discounts or refunds will be given for equipment/appliance/utility/plumbing failure or maintenance noise or disruption that occurs during your stay.

Every effort is made to keep each property clean and well maintained. Please notify us upon arrival if the unit is unsatisfactory for any reason so we have an opportunity to address it. Please do not wait until departing to voice a complaint...we want to be immediately aware of any concerns or problems so we can rectify the situation.  

WILDLIFE and PESTS: Every effort is made to control our natural guests or what some people refer to as pests.  Barefeet Rentals and the property owners engage pest control companies to control potential issues.  Part of the control is the guest’s responsibility by ensuring garbage and recycling is removed promptly and secured properly in garbage cans and doors are not left open.  The Guest accepts these pests are part of the experience and there are no refunds or cancellations provided based on pest issues.  
 
PARKING RESTRICTIONS: Parking in many locations is restricted, either by space or regulation. Parking required for motor home, travel trailers, boat trailers, etc. may determine which units you stay in, or require off-site parking arrangements.

BOATS AND OTHER WATERCRAFT:  ALL watercraft must provide proper ownership documentation and insurance AND receive confirmation of approval from the condo community's Harbormaster prior to arrival.  Barefeet Rentals is not associated with marina facilities and therefore all responsibility for making reservations for boat slips and access for watercraft onto community property are guest's responsibility. Barefeet Rentals is happy to provide the phone and/or emails for harbormasters when asked.

SUBSTITUTION OF ACCOMMODATIONS: Circumstances may cause your confirmed unit to become unavailable due to ownership changes, properties being removed from rental use, mechanical problems, or other unforeseen circumstances. Therefore, Agent cannot absolutely guarantee a specific rental property. Agent reserves the right to change assignments without notice or liability should the unit become unavailable prior to your arrival; however, this would only occur in an extreme circumstance. When comparable accommodations are not available, Guest(s) will have the option of selecting from available properties at the published rate or receiving a complete refund of their reservation deposit. Where there is no advanced deposit and no substitution can be made, Agent will give as much notice as possible so other arrangements can be made.

If circumstances occur during guest’s stay, Barefeet Rentals, acting as a booking intermediary between you and the property owner, will use its best efforts to provide a substitute vacation accommodation of equal monetary value of the original agreement.  If Barefeet Rentals is unable to find such accommodations, then at the option of the agent or Guest's option this Agreement shall be canceled and terminated. Barefeet Rentals shall refund to Guest all payments made by Guest under this Agreement for any unused portion of the rental period and shall thereafter not have any liabilities or obligations to the other arising out of the unavailability of the rental property and/or Guest's travel arrangements.
