Security, Damage & Cleaning Deposit
To ensure that our vacation homes are well maintained and cared for, we require a security deposit. . The security deposit will be used to cover any damages, missing items or extraordinary cleaning fees. In the event the extra charges exceed the security deposit, we will notify you with full details of the charges and circumstances. We appreciate our guests and the fine care they give our homes during their stay and we rarely find the need to keep any of the security deposits.
Check-In and Check-Out:
Check-In begins at 3 p.m. and Check-Out is 10 a.m. Due to the high volume of activity during the summer season and the time required to clean all the homes between renters, we are not able to accommodate early check-ins or late check-outs.
Housekeeping & Linen Supplies:
All of our homes are defined as“ housekeeping units” and daily maid service is not provided.
Each home provides bed linens (sheets, pillowcases, & bedspread/comforter) per bed as well as bath towels and wash cloths for the bathrooms. Please do not take towels for use outside the home. You must bring your own beach/boating towels.
Your vacation home will have a starter roll of toilet paper in the bathrooms. You are responsible for your own usage of toilet paper and other paper products during your stay.
Be respectful of your neighbors! All outdoor noise after 11:00 PM should be kept to a minimum or stopped completely. .
Parking is plentiful at American Spirit for cars and trailers.
Please do NOT flush anything except toilet paper down the toilet. Any other products, facial tissues, paper towels, feminine protection of any type will clog the septic system. A clogged septic system becomes very uncomfortable fairly quickly for everyone in your party.
All trash must be bagged and placed in your trash cans outside your vacation home and tightly secure the lid. Due to the hungry nature of raccoons and other wild animals, do not allow containers to overflow or leave full trash bags sitting outside the trash containers. Full & tied trash bags will be picked up periodically throughout the week. You must bring your own trash bags.
Though all of our vacation homes are sprayed regularly by a professional pest control company, ladybugs, wasps, and other insects sometimes visit the premises. In the event our guests discover a major infestation, notify the guest coordinator.
It is important to note that certain health risks are associated with the use of a hot tub. It is the responsibility of the registered guest to inform anyone using the hot tub during their stay of the potential hazards. Prior to using hot tub, wash off all suntan lotion, clay, mud, gravel etc. from your person. Do not add water or chemicals to hot tub—contact guest coordinator if you feel this is needed. Beware, hot tub covers are for insulation purposes and will not support a person. DO NOT STAND OR SIT ON HOT TUB COVERS, they will break, possible injuring someone, and you will be charged for its replacement. Keep covers closed while not in use. We will make every effort to ensure the hot tub is working properly, however, if it is temporarily out of order, renters are not entitled to a refund.
Use Hot Tubs at your own Risk
