Terms and Conditions

NAPLES AWAY TERMS AND CONDITIONS

NAPLES AWAY  is a wholly owned subsidiary of STEWART REAL ESTATE COMPANY, a licensed broker in the State of Florida. Your reservation is subject to the completion of our standard lease and will often require the registration of your tenancy by the property's Community Association. This is typically a routine process, using boilerplate documents, but is often necessary for the caliber of the homes and communities in which you will be staying. 

Reserving on-line puts your property ON HOLD. We will contact you to confirm availability and any minimum nights stay. Once confirmed, we will send paperwork for signature and charge your deposit to secure your booking.

Some of our homes are in communities requiring a 30 day minimum tenancy. Some owners also prefer a single 60 - 90 day booking in Peak Season. We will work closely with you to match your needs with any specific property guidelines. It is always helpful if your booking dates line up with the beginning and end of a Calendar month.

In addition to your separate agreement to the terms of the lease and any specific community regulations, by "Submitting" the reservation form, you are confirming that you have read and agreed to the rules and regulations listed below. Your ON HOLD reservation is subject to confirmation, receipt of payment and the understanding that you will adhere to the terms herein from  Naples Away.  The balance is due 60 days prior to the arrival date and it is the Guest’s responsibility to make sure payment arrives on time. If the balance remains unpaid at 50 days, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation and put the unit back on the market. (See Cancellations & Substitutions below). Reservations closer than 60 days must be paid in full when the booking is made.

To make this reservation, you must be at least Thirty Years old (30 yrs.) and occupy the unit for the entire time of the reservation. We do not rent to groups of singles under 30 or teens with chaperones . The maximum occupancy, of people over the age of Three years old (3 yrs.) is listed on the website for each unit and is strictly enforced. We reserve the right to determine the number of children that may accompany a parent or guardian. Guest may not assign or transfer this agreement. Outside guests are not permitted on a regular daily basis without approval. Community management will ask you to leave if you are under age or if there is evidence of outside, non-registered guests. Please do not leave children under 14 alone in the unit.

Cancellations & Substitutions:  Any change or cancellation of a confirmed reservation prior to original scheduled arrival will be subject to the loss of deposit and any further payments as specified in the lease. If the house is re-rented, you will receive a refund equal to the amount the house was re-rented for, minus a Three Hundred Fifty dollar ($350.00) service charge which may be applied to a future reservation. 

Travel Insurance: Please note that CSA Travel Insurance is available for United States residents only. Coverage Questions? Call (866) 999-4018.  We are pleased to offer the option of CSA Travel Insurance which covers trip cancellation, trip delay / interruption, rental car collision, baggage delay, medical expense / emergency medical transportation, roadside assistance, concierge service, identity theft and more. The cost is a very reasonable 7.65% of your total booking and covers everyone on your guest list. We strongly recommend you purchase this valuable protection, which will reimburse you for pre-paid, non-refundable expenses due to certain unforeseeable circumstances. However, if you do not wish to purchase travel insurance, please select “No” to Travel Insurance when booking.

Pets:  Dogs are only permitted in a handful of units so please inquire when booking. Cats are not permitted except by written permission in a very few homes. There is a non-refundable pet fee of One Hundred Dollars ($200.00). The pet fee does not cover removing pet waste so please stoop & scoop. Pets are not allowed in the pool. You must keep your pet leashed and under control at all times. If any evidence of a pet(s) is found in your unit or on the premises without prior written permission, you will be asked to vacate immediately with no refund of any payments. The owner of the house and Naples Away ! shall be held harmless from all claims or causes of actions arising from, but not limited to damage or physical injury, caused by the pet. You are responsible to have your pet up to date on all shots and vaccinations including but not limited to tick and flea treatment. Please do not leave pets home alone if you are expecting a service technician as they will not enter the premises.

Smoking:  Smoking is not permitted in any unit. If there is evidence of smoking in the house, you will be charged Two Hundred Fifty dollars ($250.00) plus the cost to remove all evidence of smoking. (This typically involves dry-cleaning of window treatments and bedspreads, shampooing the upholstery and carpets, and changing the air filters.) Please smoke outside and clean up all evidence of smoking.

Vehicles:  It is understood that RV’s, boats, motor homes, trucks, motorcycles, trailers etc. are not permitted . It is also understood that, at no time, are vehicles allowed to be used for accommodation or connected in any way to utilities of the main home. All houses have limits for the number of parking spaces which are strictly enforced. Please refer to the property listing for details.

However, no rent refund will be paid for any nonperformance of appliances or equipment, including pool or internet equipment.  Maid service is not included. If you would like additional cleaning services, this can be arranged, at your own expense.

Swimming Pool and Pool Area:  In homes with pools, the pool is typically heated by an electric heat pump and some pools are also augmented with solar heat. There will be instructions for regulating the pool temperature in the home. In the winter months, if the air is cold, the water temperature might not reach the set temperature and will be very costly to heat. For this reason, each pool home has a (generous) cap on the heating utility bill to be paid by the owner. Any indiscriminate use of the pool heater or air conditioning will result in an additional charge to the tenant, over the agreed utility cap. It is recommended that a solar blanket be used (if present) when the evening temperatures drop below 70 deg. There is no guarantee as to the pool suitability or temperature. Use of the Swimming Pool is "at your own risk". All guests assume the risks of use and waive the right to file suit against the owner and / or Naples Away for any loss, damage, injury or liability that should occur.  A Pool Waiver form is provided for this purpose. PLEASE AVOID DIVING. The guest assumes all responsibility for themselves and anyone that they allow to be in the pool area; there is no lifeguard on duty.

 •An adult ABSOLUTELY MUST supervise children at all times. The tragedy of child drowning occurs every year in Florida and is a nightmare we all must work to avoid. Pools are gated, caged or alarmed but you, as the parent or guardian, play a critical role – on vacation, just as at home.

•Only registered guests are allowed.

•Pets are forbidden in the pool and pool area.

•No glass or breakable objects.

•Area must be kept in a clean and proper order.

•Please do not throw anything heavier than a pool noodle in the screened pool area as the screens tend to get damaged. This is considered “Willful” damage and is NOT covered by your SDP.

•Please insure that young children wear swim diapers and not regular diapers.

The pool is serviced regularly and has automatic cleaning and chlorinating systems. Please notify Naples Away  immediately if there are any problems or concerns; unfortunately, there will be no rent refund if the pool or spa is closed due to any circumstance. The gates and pool cage doors are to be kept closed and secured at all times.

Bicycles, Lounge Chairs and Towels:  If you take any house property out of the home, please make sure it is all returned to the house each night. Replacement cost is Seventy Five Dollars ($75.00) per lounge chair and Twenty Five dollars ($25.00) per towel. Bicycles will be replaced at accurate replacement cost.

Quiet times:  Naples Away  takes the enjoyment of our guests very seriously. Quiet times between 10:00 p.m. (2200 hrs.) and 7:00 a.m. (0700 hrs.) are mandated and must be respected. Please remember that noise carries very well close to water and that conversations are easily heard from balconies and pools. Should continued, excessive noise persist, please be advised that the Sheriff will be called and your tenancy may be terminated immediately and you may be billed for any damages. Your cooperation in helping us maintain friendly relations with the neighbors, and the Community, is greatly appreciated.
