Here is the rental agreement that you are agreeing to when you book Villa Derondo:
1. RENTAL AGREEMENT
THIS AGREEMENT IS MADE AND ENTERED INTO BETWEEN THE AIRBNB ACCOUNT HOLDER GUEST (HEREINAFTER REFERRED TO AS GUEST) AND STEVEN RYALS, (HEREINAFTER REFERRED TO AS AGENT) FOR THE RENTAL OF THE PROPERTY (HEREINAFTER REFERRED TO AS THE PROPERTY). NOW THEREFORE, IN CONSIDERATION OF THE MUTUAL COVENANTS AND AGREEMENTS SET FORTH BELOW AND OTHER GOOD AND VALUABLE CONSIDERATION, THE RECEIPT AND SUFFICIENCY OF WHICH ARE ACKNOWLEDGED, THE PARTIES COVENANT AND AGREE AS FOLLOWS:
RESERVATION POLICIES: Payment in full (Total Payment) is required at the time of booking to reserve the property. The reservation name, the credit card name, and the rental agreement signature must all match. All payments must come from the person on the reservation. We will return any payments (minus the bank fees) received from an account that does not match the reservation name. Bank fees are 3% when our bank takes the unacceptable payment, plus another 3% to return the unacceptable payment. Total payment includes the rent amount, fees, and taxes. If you booked through an online platform, this is not applicable to your reservation.
To protect your vacation investment, we strongly recommend you purchase travel insurance. You acknowledge that changes or cancellations may result in loss of up to the total paid to date.
CANCELLATION POLICIES & FEES Written (email) notice is required if you need to cancel your reservation with more than the required advance notice, which is 60 days prior to the check in date for weekly rentals and 120 days advance notice prior to the check in date for multi-week rentals If you need to cancel your reservation with more than the required advance notice, we will refund the initial payment minus a $350 cancellation fee. The Agent cannot accept cancellation requests with less than the required advance notice. The Agent reserves the right to rent the unit to a different group if the reservation is not paid in full by the payment due date. Cancellations occurring due to lack of total payment will result in forfeiture of the initial payment plus any rent, taxes, and fees paid. In no event shall a Guest assign or sublet the Rental Property in whole, or in part.
DAMAGES AND MISSING ITEMS
Guest will be financially responsible for damage to the property. Guest authorizes The Agent to charge Guest’s credit card in the event of the following: damage or theft; flea infestation caused by a pet; unauthorized pets; extensive cleaning required at check-out; evidence of smoking (all properties are non-smoking); exceeding occupancy or parking limits, and any other mentioned charges/policies in this Rental Agreement.
Guest will be notified of any damage/costs in writing. Excessive damage may result in Guest being charged for the relocation or compensation to the incoming guest if check-in is delayed as a result of said damage. Any material damage to the Rental Property will be charged immediately to the Guest’s credit card. Guest, in signing below, assumes full responsibility for any items damaged due to misuse or negligence and for any items found to be missing. Guests are responsible for notifying The Agent immediately upon check-in if the Rental Property is found in less than good condition or any damage (other than normal wear and tear) is noted. If damages occur during your stay, please notify us immediately.
The Rental Agreement is a legally binding agreement between Guest and The Agent. Your reservation and signed Rental Agreement bind you to a specific property (102 Derondo St, Panama City Beach, FL 32413) for a specific period of time (shown on page 1 of this agreement). There should be no expectation of refunds or relocation because you are disappointed with the property you have rented or if something associated with the property is not working to your satisfaction. All properties are privately owned and furnished per the owner's requirements, so unlike a hotel, we cannot relocate you without specific authorization from the Property Owner. If a problem arises during your stay, we will make every attempt to solve it in a timely manner. There will be no refunds for mechanical failure of appliances, a/c units, etc.
In the event of an ordered evacuation due to hurricanes or other storms, you are required by state law to vacate property. The Agent will not issue refunds in part or in full for inclement weather. Our recommendation for travels during hurricane season is for you to research and purchase trip cancellation insurance.
The Guest agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Agent and Owner for any damages to or loss from the rental house, grounds, furnishings, appliances, household items and any other of the Owner’s property resulting during the Guest’s rental term, normal wear and tear excluded.
The Guest further agrees to indemnify and hold the owner and the rental agent (Steven & Shellina Ryals) harmless from any claim or liability for any loss or damage whatsoever arising from, related to or in connection with the rental of this rental property, including but not limited to any claim for personal injury or damage or loss of property which is made, incurred or sustained by the Guest or other occupants or invitees of Guest. Neither the owner nor the agent is responsible for any of the Guest’s or other occupant(s) valuables, cash or other property during the rental term or thereafter left at the rental house.
Rental Properties are for family vacations only: The Agent gladly rents to families or responsible adults over the age of 25. The Agent has a No-Group Policy, which includes but is not limited to the following: school, spring break, prom, graduation, etc. The Agent MAY approve at the time of reservation and at our discretion with a significant additional damage deposit, rental to groups, but you must disclose at the time of reservation that you are a non-family group. Absolutely no house parties, overcrowding events, or kegs! Properties are stocked according to their maximum occupancy. Requests for extra items such as towels, sheets, blankets etc. will incur an additional fee to include delivery of items. Guests shall respect and not interfere with the rights, comfort or convenience of adjacent homeowners or occupants. If Guests violate any of the terms of this agreement, an agent representing The Agent may, at his or her sole discretion, evict Guests and occupants of the property with no refund, which will also include, if applicable, Guest’s security deposit. Additionally, if evicted, Guest’s credit card will be charged a $500 eviction fee. The Agent reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. All rental properties are leased without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap or sexual orientation.
ITEMS LEFT BEHIND

In addition, you will need to supply your shipping address and credit card information to UPS or equivalent to pay for shipping charges.

The process of eliminating smoke odor (ozonation, cleaning of furniture, drapes, bedding etc..) can become very costly. If you smoke, you will be charged.
