cleaning fee added to their rental rate which will include a normal cleaning of the unit.
We ask only that our rental guests load any dirty dishes into the dishwasher, remove
garbage from the unit, and place all used linen and towels in the designated area of

shall refund to Tenant all payments made by the Tenant.
(14) MANDATORY EVACUATION. If State or local authorities order a mandatory
evacuation of an area that includes the premises, Tenant shall comply with the order.
(15) EXPEDITED EVICTION. If the tenancy created hereunder is for 120 days or
less, expedited eviction procedures will apply. Tenant may be evicted under such
procedures if Tenant: (i) exhibits behavior towards our staff, residents and guests that
is disruptive or disrespectful in any way, such as a public gathering or party, or (ii)

Premises for the entire length of stay. We will hold Tenant responsible for the
conduct and behavior of all other members of the group. Should PBVR ascertain that
a Tenant, or guest of Tenant, is violating any of the provisions of the Lodging
Agreement, or determines that a Tenant is occupying a property through
misrepresentation, the group is subject to immediate termination of the tenancy with no
refund of any rental fees or other payments. PBVR reserves the right to refuse

by any person (including Tenant's guests) as a result of any cause, unless caused by
the negligent or willful act of PBVR or the Owner. Tenant agrees that PBVR, the
Owner or their respective representatives may enter the premises during reasonable
hours to inspect the premises, to make such repairs, alterations, or improvements
hereto as PBVR or Owner may deem appropriate. Tenant shall not assign this
Agreement to sublet the premises in whole or part. PBVR holds the person whose
name appears on the Agreement responsible for any payments, damage deposits,
and all other responsibilities of the Agreement. This person must be in occupancy of
the Unit for the entire term of the rental period.

pet per night cleaning fee. IF YOU PLAN ON BRINGING A PET WITH YOU, PLEASE CALL
AND SPEAK WITH OUR RESERVATIONIST FIRST. IF A UNIT DOES NOT
SPECIFICALLY ALLOW PETS, and if Tenant is found to have a pet in Tenant's unit

and a mandatory additional cleaning charge of $500 will be charged to Tenant's credit
card on file, plus an applicable administration fee.

breakdown of air conditioning, golf car, or other appliances. Please report any
non-operative equipment to PBVR promptly. We will make every effort to have repairs
done quickly and efficiently. Should a repairman make a call to a unit and find that the
equipment is in working order and the problem was due to Tenant oversight or
neglect, all charges for the service will be charged to the Tenant's credit card on file.
No rental refunds will be made due to failure of air conditioning, golf car, icemakers,
other appliances, or items beyond our control.
(20) UNIT INTERNET & TELEVISION. High speed internet and television
service may be available in your unit. These services are provided as a convenience

outages will be repaired as quickly as possible subject to the availability of service
technicians, and are not cause for the refund of any rental payment.

drivers must have a valid state-issued driver’s license, regardless of age. The golf car
is to be operated in accordance with all community rules and regulations as described

responsible for the safe operation of the golf car, for damages caused to the golf car,
and for damages and injuries to all drivers, passengers, pedestrians, other vehicles
