Vacation Rentals by Kimberly
Terms and Conditions
Please read our Terms and Conditions carefully before you begin your vacation. Any monies received by Vacation Rentals by Kimberly, LLC (herein referred to as VRBKIM) for occupancy of Vacation Property indicated the acceptance of the terms of our Vacation Rental Agreement in full. All policies are strictly enforced. It is the responsibility of all guests and members of their party to be familiar with all policies pertaining to rental. Terms include a No Tolerance policy regarding excessive noise, parties, or disturbing neighbors. Please make sure you are comfortable with our Terms as they are strictly enforced.
RENTER REQUIREMENTS: For legal and accounting purposes, the person placing the reservation must be the same as the credit/debit card holder. This person is considered to be the Guest. All other persons involved with the rental are considered to be the Guest's invitees, and all discussion regarding reservation, cancelation, and damage policies will be discussed with the Guest, not the Guest's invitees. The Guest understands that VRBKIM rents to responsible adults over the age of 25 ONLY.
ALL PAYMENTS ARE NON REFUNDABLE: Total cost is due to reserve property. A reservation can be made with a 100% payment paid by credit card. The credit card must have an expiration date that extends beyond your stay. If the Guest(s) has no Visa, Master Card, or Discover Card, a cash payment can be arranged which may include a security deposit if you opted to pay the security deposit vs. waiver fee. This security deposit will be returned within one week of the departure date, provided there is no breakage or damage to the premises and/or contents, there are no outstanding long distance phone or pay-per-view charges, no additional cleaning costs, and all other rules of this agreement are adhered to. A $35.00 service charge will be incurred for any returned checks.

The Guest agrees to pay for any flagrant damage to the units, excessive cleaning required at check-out, missing or damage to the units' content, or any other accidental damage to anything beyond reasonable wear and tear within the rental unit during the rental period. Your reservation was either charged $89.00 for a Damage Waiver to cover up to $1,500 in damage or we collected a deposit. If any damages are above this then the Renter authorizes any said damage or missing items charged to their payment identified.
