Rules and Customs.
Weekly rentals are from Friday to Friday. Check-in at 3:00PM, check-out at 11:00AM.
Upon receipt of your security deposit you will receive an email explaining arrival and departure information. The key is to the back door which faces the parking area. The beds will have been made up and towels will be in the bathrooms. Please do not take our towels to the beach. Bring your own beach towels for this purpose. A "starter set" of toilet paper, dishwashing detergent, paper towels, etc. will be waiting for you. Please replace these items before you leave. Check-in time is 3:00 on Friday unless other arrangements have been made.
Please call immediately if there is anything obviously damaged or not working when you arrive so that these items can be repaired or replaced and not charged to your damage deposit. We do our best to keep on top of these things, but sometimes an item goes unnoticed by our cleaning staff.
The heat will be set at 55° when you arrive. Please set it back to this temperature when you leave. There is no air conditioning, so you don't have to worry about that (you won't need any, either).
The refrigerator will be on but empty when you arrive. Please leave it in the same condition.
During Your Stay:
Be sure that all fires (fireplace, candles and firepit) are completely out before leaving or going to bed.
Please re-enter the cottage through the basement entry when coming in from the beach and remove all wet or sandy clothing in the basement before going upstairs. Sand and wet bathing suits ruin carpeting and furniture.
Be sure to turn off the coffeepot before you leave for the beach or town.
Checkout time is 11:00AM on Friday, unless other arrangements have been made.
Be sure the doors are locked behind you, and all the windows are closed. Do not leave any lights on and turn the heat down to 50°.
Although a cleaning service will be arriving to prepare the home for the next guests, we expect you to leave our home in good shape with everything put away and no trash or dirty dishes left around. You needn't vacuum or strip the beds, as the cleaning service will do these things.
