You agree to the following terms and conditions when you book this property through Airbnb:
Guest. The Guest reserving this property is an adult and will be an occupant of the house during the entire reserved period, unless agreed to in writing prior to the start of the reservation. Any guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Damage Deposit. This deposit will be accounted for and refunded (less deductions) within 15 days of your departure. All or part of the Damage Deposit may be withheld to cover missing items, excess cleaning or repairs ($50/hour), additional occupancy, re-keying of locks, damage done by parties, or any damage whatsoever. Smoking is absolutely prohibited in the house. If there is any tobacco smell or evidence of smoking, the Damage Deposit will not be refunded. In addition, the Guest may be billed for any additional associated costs to rid the house of smoke smell and damage. Pets are not permitted in this rental unit. If there is evidence a pet was in the unit the Damage Deposit will not be refunded. In addition, the Guest may be charged for dry cleaning of bedding, repairs/replacement of furnishings, or any other additional cleaning and sanitizing costs associated with the occupancy of the pet. If additional cleaning or repairs require the use of an outside vendor (i.e. carpet cleaning due to spills on carpet or upholstery or patching drywall) Guest will be charged the cost of that service plus a 20% administrative fee. Regardless, Guest promises to reimburse the Owner all damages to Owner’s property caused by Guest, including those in excess of the Damage Deposit. Guest shall also be responsible to Owner for attorney fees and other costs necessary to collect for such damages.
Arrival/Check In. No check-in will be allowed until total payment has been received in full. The house will be available to you any time after 3:00 pm on the date of your arrival. We are not usually able to accommodate requests for early check-in. If you notice pre-existing damage upon your arrival please notify us immediately. Failure to report damages may jeopardize the return of your Damage Deposit.
Keys/Lock Outs. Two keys will be provided for your use. If you are locked out, you may call us at ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and we will respond as soon as possible. Please understand that we may not be immediately available for assistance.
Linens/Supplies. Sheets and towels are provided for your stay. Dishes, basic kitchen utensils, and initial consumables are also provided (toilet paper, coffee/tea, dishwashing detergent, paper towels).
Cleaning & Housekeeping. Housekeeping services are not provided with your rental but basic housekeeping supplies are provided so you may do your own cleaning during your stay. You are expected to leave the house in the same general condition that you found it by making sure: dishes are cleaned and ready to be put away; counters and appliances are left clean; all items and furniture are returned to their original location; and garbage/recycling/composting is placed in proper containers. Bedding should be left on the beds, but they do not need to be made. The house should be generally picked up and ready to be cleaned and sanitized for our next guests. If additional cleaning or repairs are required you will be charged $50 an hour with a 1 hour minimum; additional cleaning is considered anything beyond laundering linens and towels, changing beds, dusting, vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, and putting away clean dishes.
Garbage/Recycling/Composting. Seattle has mandatory recycling and composting programs. All occupants are required to follow the City of Seattle’s Recycling Guidelines by disposing of recyclable goods and compostable material separately from trash.
Fireplace. Only the provided candles may be burned in the fireplace. Burning candles should never be left unattended. The fireplace is not to be used to burn wood, paper, trash, or any other material.
Departure/Check Out. Departure time is 10:00 am; your prompt checkout is appreciated so we can prepare the house for our next guests. When you check-out make sure all doors and windows are closed and locked, the thermostat is lowered, and the lights are turned off.
Number/Conduct of Occupants. Please inform us of any changes in the number of occupants before your arrival. Unless you’ve received written permission from the Owner, the house is not for gatherings at any time of anyone except those listed on the reservation. There are absolutely no parties permitted. If evidence of a party is found during a Guest’s stay, (for example, because of noise complaints or alcohol containers littering the yard), Guests will be asked to vacate immediately. The Guest will likely also be billed or the Damage Deposit withheld for excess cleaning, replacement cost of broken items, and repairs needed resulting from violation of this policy. No illegal activity is allowed. No RV’s or campers may be parked on the property.
Security. Guest assumes responsibility for the house and its contents, as well as any of your personal property in the house during your stay. Our property insurance does not cover Guest belongings. You may wish to purchase travel insurance for this purpose. It is advisable to lock the doors and windows when you are away and leave the porch light on. We recommend that you remove valuables from your vehicle and keep it locked as well.
Risks/Safety. Children are welcome, however, there may be conditions in and around the house that may pose hazards to them, as well as to adults. Owner does not assume any liability or responsibility for any injuries occurring during your stay with us. Children must be supervised at all times. Candles are not allowed due to fire danger. Fireworks are prohibited in the City of Seattle.
Locked Areas. The Owner may keep personal items in one or more locked areas. Access to these locked areas is not included in your rental.
Repairs. If something breaks during your stay, please call us at ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) to report the problem and we will address your concerns as soon as possible. (Even if you don’t mind going without the item, we may need time to arrange repairs before the arrival of our next guests.) It may be necessary for us or a contractor hired by us to enter the home at reasonable times to make repairs. Public utilities are beyond the Owner’s control and their failure will not be grounds for a refund. No amenities are guaranteed. The malfunction of amenities will not entitle Guest to a refund.
Telephone/ Mail and Packages. Telephone service is not provided. You will not be able to access the mailbox during your stay. If you need to receive mail or take delivery of a package, please contact us for assistance.
Items Left in the Home. Please be sure to thoroughly check the house before you leave for any personal items.

However, we cannot guarantee the return of items left behind and items found and not requested to be returned within 3 days after your departure may be discarded.
Non-availability of Property. In the event that the Owner is unable to deliver the property reserved under this agreement because of fire, eminent domain, act of nature, double booking, delay in construction or any other reason whatsoever, Guest hereby agrees that Owner’s sole liability as a result of these conditions is a full refund of all monies previously tendered by Guest. If such an event occurs after check-in Guest’s sole remedy is a pro-rated refund. Guest expressly acknowledges that in no event shall Owner be held liable for any consequential or secondary damages. No refunds shall be granted due to surrounding construction or noise.
Owner’s Right to Terminate Agreement. This agreement allows the Guest to occupy the property on a nightly basis. The Owner may terminate this agreement by providing written notice at any time during the reserved period and Guest’s sole remedy shall be a pro-rated refund.
Additional Terms and Conditions.
