Rental Rules
 

Welcome to Grand Isle. We hope you enjoy your stay with us. This property is privately owned and all items and furnishing in this home are the private property of the owner. Any damage to property or missing items will be deducted from your damage deposit. We understand that accidents happen, and we ask that you report any damages immediately in order that we can arrange for repairs or replacement as soon as possible,

Please make sure that all members of your group are advised of the following information:

Please note this is not a "party house". We do not rent to fraternities, sororities, bachelor parties or other such groups. Please respect this policy and do not cause a problem for yourself or us by attempting to use this property for this purpose, as it will not be allowed. Your group will be asked to vacate the premises and there will be no refund.

CHECK IN time is 3:00 pm. Please do not arrive before check in as housekeeping needs to complete the cleaning from previous guests. NO EXCEPTIONS.

CHECK OUT time is 11:00 am. Please vacate property no later than 11 a.m. so that we can have it ready for the next guests. If you stay past 11 a.m., you will be charged an additional night's rental. NO EXCEPTIONS.


Pet Policy: Absolutely no pets allowed anywhere on the property.

Smoking Policy:- No smoking is allowed inside. Please use the downstairs area or outside on the decks for smoking. Please use an appropriate receptacle for cigarette butts. Do not throw them on the decks, lawns or grounds. An additional fee will be charged for picking up cigarette butts.

Towels and Linens: Towels are provided for bathing and are not to be taken to the beach or used to wash boats, vehicles, etc. Linens, blankets, pillows, mattresses and comforters are not to be taken to the beach or used outside.

Furniture: Please do not rearrange the furniture. Do not dismantle beds and move them to other rooms. Do not take deck furniture off of the property. If an umbrella is provided, please do not leave unattended or use in windy weather.

Outdoor Areas: Outdoor areas must be cleaned and returned to proper order prior to departure. This is not included in your cleaning fee.

Fish cleaning areas are provided for your convenience and enjoyment. Please dispose of fish heads, guts, etc. in a proper manner. They may be placed in heavy trash bags, tied and placed in the garbage bins or you can bury them across the beach levee (deep enough so that no one will step on the fin or bone of a fish). Do not throw this material on the levee, streets or any other open area. This is a violation of municipal law and could result in a fine. You are responsible for cleaning all fish cleaning areas after each use. Remove all seafood and fish scales and rinse all fish cleaning counters, concrete, etc. with fresh water.

BBQ - Because of fire hazard, please use barbeque pits in open areas only. After charcoal has cooled, please remove charcoal from pit and discard in garbage bag. Please clean grill after use.

Boiling seafood - Because of fire hazard, please boil in open areas only. No boiling is allowed on decks. Turn off propane tanks when finished boiling, wash boil pots and pick up any trash, food, shrimp shells, etc. Rinse tables, counters and concrete with fresh water. Return boil pot, burner and propane to proper area.

If outdoor areas are not cleaned, an appropriate amount will be deducted from the security deposit.

No swimming pools or hot tubs are allowed anywhere on the property: The decks are not designed to support the weight of water in a swimming pool. This can create an extremely dangerous situation resulting in damage to property and possible injury.

Parking: No parking is allowed between the yellow water meter and the drainage ditch right-of-way. Drive slowly as you pull in and out of the driveway because wet grass can and will become full of ruts. Additional parking can be found across the street in the beach parking lot. Do not park on the street in front of neighbors camps.

Neighboring Properties: Please be considerate of neighbors and respect their property. Do not park on their property or block their driveways. Do not use items from outside their houses (tables, chairs, crab traps, fishing gear, etc.). Do not empty charcoal or dump grease or boil water on their lawns. Please use designated crossovers to get to the beach and do not cut through private property. There is a right of way across street to access the beach. Some of these rights of way are maintained by the neighboring homeowners and appear to be part of their property. However, they are public property. There are also numerous cross walks with steps to the beach that are maintained by the town. These are especially helpful for those who may have trouble crossing the levee.

This is the maximum number of people that may sleep in the house overnight. Older children, teens & toddlers are counted in this number. Infants (under 12 months old) do not have to be included in this number. You are allowed to have a reasonable number of guests visiting the property during the day, however, we do not allow large groups of extra guests and large "yard party" situations. If the police are dispatched to the house due to large groups of people or because of loud and disruptive behavior, we reserve the right to deny occupancy to all members of your group with no refund.
