1. AGREEMENT: Your Hosts, Paul and Sheryl Waln (Owners), and Tenant(s) agree as follows:

Above Tenant(s) is an adult and will be an occupant of the unit during the entire reserved period. Other
occupants will be family members, friends or responsible adults, but no more than the maximum number of
adults are allowed to stay and occupy the unit. Use of the premises will be denied to persons not falling
within the aforementioned categories and as a result they would have to vacate the property immediately
without refund. Tenant shall NOT sublease the unit. No business of any kind shall be conducted in the unit.
Keys will not be issued to anyone who is not an adult. Keys will only be issued to the person(s) who have
completed and signed this Rental Agreement.

2. Check-In: 4 p.m. and Check-Out: 10 a.m.

Please plan your arrival for late in the day, as your accommodations will not be ready prior to 4 p.m. You
are to schedule your arrival with the Property Manager. If you wish, the Property Manager will meet you at
a pre-appointed time and can conduct an informal walk-through of the home to advise you of important
information pertaining to the home. Please plan your departure for 10 a.m. so our housekeeping staff may
have time to properly prepare the unit for our next guests.

By 10:00 a.m. on the day of your departure, your vacation home should be empty of your personal
belongings, trash out and in the proper receptacle, all dishes washed and left in a generally neat and orderly
condition. Please be certain that you have taken with you all personal items, the Owners and/or Property
Manager(s) cannot be responsible for items left behind. Keys should be returned to the Hosts, unless other
arrangements are made. A $100 per hour fee will be charged for each hour (or portion thereof) past the
required check out time. A $150 will be charged for lost key(s). Your Security Deposit will be returned
upon the Hosts receiving key(s) back from the Tenant (assuming there is no further damage or fees to be
charged).

Early check-in is allowed only when the property is clean and ready for occupancy ahead of schedule and
prior approval is required. Exceptions to the regular Check-in and Check-out times must be requested in
advance and is at the sole discretion of the Property Manager. Early check-in will result in a $100 per hour
charge for each hour (or portion thereof) prior to the normal check-in time of 4:00 p.m.

3. PETS: Not Allowed.

No dogs are allowed on the premises without the prior written consent of the property owners. If a pet is
approved, an additional rental fee, and a substantial damage deposit will be required. You MUST clean up
after your pet. That includes proper disposal of all waste material. You must also maintain control of your
pet at all times and NEVER leave a dog unattended. If you are leaving for the day and do not want to take
the dog with you, you must put it in a local kennel, or find alternative solutions to leaving the dog alone at
the property. You must depart the home in the same clean condition you found upon arrival; including
removal of pet hair — so that it is not visible. Any complaints from neighbors regarding excessive noise, or
other nuisances from your pet, may be cause for immediate termination of this Rental Agreement and
forfeiture of the remaining rental fee. Pets are NOT permitted on the furniture, including, but not limited to
beds, couch, chairs, futons, tables, ottomans. If it is found that a pet was at the property without prior
written permission, you will be charged $250.00 per pet from your Security Deposit.

Cats ARE NEVER ALLOWED — NO EXCEPTIONS!

4. SMOKING. Not allowed — No exceptions!

The Tenant(s) may not smoke inside the home. Please smoke outdoors. If the Tenant(s) leaves evidence of
smoking and/or smoking odors inside the home, any sanitizing and deodorizing of carpet, upholstery,
window coverings, etc., will be at the expense of the Tenant(s) — charged against the Security Deposit.

5. SECURITY DEPOSIT:

The Security Deposit is due 7 days prior to your stay — in the form of a cashier’s check. This includes pet
deposits if applicable. Cancellation of your reservation will occur if you fail to pay your Security Deposit
within this time frame. Your Security Deposit is fully refundable and will be refunded upon the Hosts
receiving the issued key(s) back from the Tenant, provided that real and personal rented property are
vacated in the same condition as commencement of the rental.

For 30-day or more stays where Tenant(s) are required to pay utility charges, your Security Deposit will be
refunded less the utilities, upon the Hosts receiving the issued key(s) back from the Tenant. Of course, also
provided that real and personal rented property are vacated in the same condition as commencement of the
rental.

6. ADDITIONAL TENANT(S) LIABILITY

Tenant(s) will be held liable for replacement and/or repair of items that are damaged, and not attributable to
normal wear and tear. Tenant(s) will be responsible for any damage caused by willful or malicious acts
occurred during their stay. Tenant(s) agrees to accept liability for any damages caused to the property
(other than normal wear and tear) by Tenant(s) or Tenant’s guests, including, but not limited to:
furnishings, landscaping, misuse of appliances, and/or equipment. If damages are in excess of the Security
Deposit being held, Tenant(s) agrees to reimburse the Hosts, Paul and Sheryl Waln (Owners), for costs
incurred to repair/replace damaged items.
We appreciate you reporting all maintenance items, and we will respond to them as soon as possible. Please
understand that if your actions have caused a maintenance call, your Security Deposit will be charged.

7. CANCELLATION: No Refunds.

There are no refunds for cancellation of your scheduled stay. If you are forced to cancel your reservation,
you will forfeit your rental fee. Every effort will be made to re-rent the property. If the property is re-rented
to someone else, at the same rate, for the same time period, we will refund your rental fee, less $100 for
administrative fees. Your Security Deposit is fully refundable.

8. WEATHER CONDITIONS: No Refunds.

We do not offer refunds for inclement weather conditions during your stay -- we are providing the
accommodations only.

9. CLEANING:

Each property will be inspected, sanitized and cleaned prior to your arrival and after your departure. Your
rental fee provides up to four hours of normal cleaning after you depart, so that you may enjoy your
vacation up to the last moment. YOU ARE REQUIRED to leave the property in the same general condition
as when you arrived, by making sure dishes, towels and linens are washed and the home is generally
"picked up" and ready to be vacuumed, dusted and sanitized. If additional cleaning is required, appropriate
charges will be deducted from your Security Deposit at the rate of $25 per hour.

10. TELEPHONES:

Long distance telephone service is blocked. YOU MUST USE CREDIT CALLING CARDS, OR CALL
COLLECT WHEN MAKING LONG DISTANCE TELEPHONE CALLS. Telephones may be used to
make as many local calls as you wish. Additional phone jacks are available throughout the home for use

towels, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, TV’s and DVD systems, laundry room, air conditioning, small

item that you are accustomed to using (such as a special type of cooking utensil, etc.) please provide for
those items by bringing them with you. If you have any questions about what is provided with the home,
please contact the Property Manager prior to your arrival.

12. WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING:

You must bring with you such items as bath soap, shampoo, toilet tissue, laundry soap and all personal

Causing damage to the premises or to any neighboring property, and 4) Any other act(s) which interferes
with any surrounding neighbor’s right to quiet enjoyment of their property.

We love our guests, but loud and unruly tenants will not be tolerated. The home is located in a residential
area, and may not be used for weddings, wedding parties, receptions, or other large group functions without
written approval from the Owners. The home may be located in a Homeowners Association, where failure
to comply with regulations concerning parking, noise or other disturbances, may result in being asked to
leave and/or loss of you remaining rental funds and Security Deposit.

services. Tenant agrees to pay long distance telephone charges, gas and electricity (in excess of $125.00

be deducted from the Security Deposit as they are incurred.
