Terms

1. Reservations. One half of the total booking amount is required immediately to hold Occupant reservation including any security deposit. After the deposit is received, your reservation will be held until 60 days prior to check in, at which time, the remaining balance is due. Please note the date that final monies are due, as there will be no further notification provided by this office. Allow ample time for your payment to reach PROPERTY MANAGER in a timely manner. PROPERTY MANAGER shall not be obligated to honor any payments received less than 60 days prior to the beginning of the rental term/check in. All times are Pacific Standard Time and currency is in USD. Reservations will be held for seven (7) days. If signed rental agreement and deposit are not received within a seven (7) day period from the date of the Tenant's signature, the reservation will be cancelled.
2. Deposit. A deposit totaling 50% of the agreed upon total stay amount is due with acceptance of rental agreement. Payment of deposit shall be deemed as acceptance of this rental agreement. Payment may be made by a major credit card or wire transfer.
3. Cancellations. Cancellations must be made in writing, either via fax or email, no cancellations by phone are allowed. Upon cancellation, refund of any deposits held by PROPERTY MANAGER shall be granted only if the home is re-rented. We will make every effort to re-rent the home once notification of cancellation has been made; therefore it is in the guest’s best interest to notify us of a cancellation as soon as possible. If the Occupant cancels the rental, the Occupant shall forfeit all rental deposits held by PROPERTY MANAGER as liquidated damages for the Owner, unless the rental premises are re-let for the same rental period. Then a portion of the deposits may be refunded to the Occupants as follows: (1) a 15% (of the total rent due from the 1st page of this contract) reservation cancellation fee shall be deducted; (2) loss of rental income, if any, for the rental period shall be deducted from the deposits. [Example: house rental rate of $1,000 with a $500.00 deposit being held, which is re-let for $900.00 for the rental period, results in a $250.00 refund of the deposit. From the $500.00 deposit, deductions of $100.00 (loss of rental income) and $150.00 (cancellation fee) are taken resulting in a total refund of $250.00]. If you have purchased travel insurance, please refer to their guidelines regarding coverage on cancellations. There will be no refunds for early departure.
4. Changes to Reservations. Changes must be made in writing, either via e-mail or fax. Changes can also be made by phone with a follow-up in writing by Occupant. Changes to reservations can only be made up to 60 days prior to the beginning of the rental term/check in. Any change to a reservation regarding a change of date for the same property can be made over the phone and a new contract will be sent out for the new date(s). Any change request for a different property is subject to approval, availability and possible penalties and a new deposit will be needed if for a new property (See Section 1). The previous deposit will be held until the first property is re-rented. Any reservation change request where the first property is not re-rented shall be deemed a cancellation per paragraph 2.
5. Nature of Accommodations. Homes offered for rental are individually owned and reflect the taste of each owner. Homes are equipped with basic housekeeping items, including bed linens and bath towel sets. Every effort has been made to assure accurate descriptions of the property. Occupant agrees to accept home in its current condition and understands that there will be no refunds or reductions of rental rate due to issues involving the nature of accommodations. No rebates will be granted for malfunction or breakdown of appliances or home equipment, including but not limited to, microwaves, toasters, coffeemakers, dishwashers, washer/dryers, refrigerators, Jacuzzis/Spas, aquariums, televisions, home audio, DVD players, cable/satellite, televisions, elevators, computers/modems/wireless routers/internet access, and garage doors. All grievances must be expressed to PROPERTY MANAGER in writing on the day of check-in, otherwise refunds, if any, will not be considered.
6. Check-in and Checkout. Check-in time is after 4:00 PM on date of occupancy with no exceptions. Check-in address will be at the property between 4:00PM and 5PM on date of occupancy by SIGNEE AND MUST BE OVER THE AGE OF 25 WITH PHOTO I.D. While every effort will be made to have the property available for check in at 4:00 pm, during the summer, a cleaning crew may require additional cleaning time and check in may be slightly delayed. Occupant must vacate premises and return all keys (if any) to Rental Office no later than 10 a.m. on check out date. Check-out after 10 a.m. will result in an additional day charge. Occupants may not change or add any locks at the rented premises. Leaving the keys at the premises will constitute a late check-out and result in an additional day charge.
7. True Representation of Occupancy. The Property Manager manages homes that are privately owned and operated. The owners who make their homes available through the Property Manager's request that they are marketed and rented only to vacationing families. Reservations made for teenagers or young single groups will not be honored without an accompanying adult staying in the property at ALL times. If the Property Manager finds that Occupant has made a false representation of occupants, or the sole occupants at the premises are under the age of 26, or that there are any unsupervised minors at the premises, Occupant is subject to immediate termination of tenancy with no refund of rental monies. Each home has a sleeping occupancy bed limit set by the owner. If Occupant exceeds this bed limit for any reason, Occupant will be considered in violation of this rental agreement and will be charged a minimum fine of $200.00 per person per night. In addition, occupancy limits for day usage for Occupant’s guests and invitees are limited to two (2) times the premises’ occupancy or bed limit. If Occupant desires to exceed this limit for a specific purpose (family gathering or holiday celebration), Occupant must put such request in writing with total number of guests specified.
8. Repairs/Maintenance Renter shall keep and maintain premises in a clean and sanitary condition at all times. PROPERTY MANAGER will pay for all normal and usual maintenance as needed. If appliances, electronics, etc malfunction, PROPERTY MANAGER will attempt to fix and/or replace items as soon as possible once notified by occupant. Ongoing property maintenance may take place during your stay, but will never interrupt your vacation. Repairs will be accomplished as soon as possible, taking into consideration service personnel workloads, part availability and nature of the work.
9. Entry and Inspection PROPERTY MANAGER shall have the right to enter the premises: a) in case of emergency; b) to make necessary or agreed repairs, decorations, alterations, improvement, supply necessary or agreed services, c) when Occupant has abandoned or surrendered the premises. Except under (a) and (c), entry may not be made other than during normal business hours, and without less than 24 hours prior notice to Occupant.
10. Pool & Spa PROPERTY MANAGER is not responsible for any spa or pool related injuries that may occur (overheating, slipping, etc). All spas/pools have electrical/mechanical components which can sometimes malfunction. PROPERTY MANAGER is not responsible for any malfunctioning heater. In the case that the heater does malfunction, please inform us as soon as possible. However, no compensation will be given for malfunctioning spas/pools. Occupant agrees to secure spa cover after every use, as winds may blow cover off and cause damage. THE RENTER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT BEACHES & SWIMMING POOLS AND AREAS SURROUNDING THE SAME ARE INHERENTLY DANGEROUS AND CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY, DROWNING, OR DEATH. Therefore, Occupant will assume this risk and exercise great caution when using the pool, outdoor spa, pool area and beach. The renter hereby agrees to supervise children, non-swimmers and/or guests with physical or mental limitations and all others using the pool, spa and/or pool area and beach and to take full responsibility for their supervision. Occupant agrees to use the pool, spa, beach access and beach area entirely at the occupant's own initiative, risk and responsibility.
11. Substitutions. The Property Manager will make every effort to ensure the house selected will be available. However, should the reserved house be unavailable, the Property Manager may provide an equivalent substitute for the same week. We will try to notify the Occupant in advance, time permitting. Should the substitute house’s regular rental rate be less than the reserved house’s rental rate, Occupant will be refunded the difference. Should the substitute house’s regular rental rate be more than the reserved house’s rental rate, there shall be no further charge or liability to Occupant.
12. Utilities. No compensation will be given for temporary outage of electricity, gas, water, cable, or telephone service. Outages will be reported immediately to the correct authority and all efforts will be made to have them restored as soon as possible. For certain properties, extra utility charges may apply.
13. Keys. Most of our properties are equipped with an electronic keyless entry with passcode. You will receive the password and operation instructions the week prior to your arrival. If you are issued keys, lost keys are a $100 charge as well as for garage door openers.
14. Security Deposit Refunds. For those properties which require a security deposit, such deposits will be returned by mail within thirty days after checkout, less deduction, if any. The security deposit protects against damage done to the home, any excessive required cleaning, any missing/damaged linens or towels, service calls and telephone calls by guests, any extra number of guests not specified on page one of this agreement and any other extraordinary expenses that may have been incurred. This paragraph does not apply to those properties which have a damage waiver charge.
15. Housekeeping/Turnover Fee. The housekeeping fee charged with each unit is a non-refundable charge that is applied to the cleaning of every unit upon check-out and pays for a third-party professional sheet and towel service. Any heavy/deep cleaning required above the standard cleaning charge will be deducted from the security deposit and will void the damage waiver agreement (if any). All units include linens for each bed, including a set of towels for each listed/authorized occupant. Please do not remove them or damage them in any way.

Birthday Celebration We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday on Balboa. Sitting outside enjoying morning coffee, and wine at night was enjoyable. The cottage was in a perfect location to walk anywhere; stores, restaurants, beach. TV, basic cable and apps, did not work in all locations; i.e. living room. Feeling the breeze and having all the windows open was enjoyable. Just an FYI,the cottage is in the direct take-off flight path of John Wayne Airport. You do hear the jets constantly during the day.

Great location--Balboa Island family fun We were looking for a family friendly, affordable cottage for a family get together and this fit the bill. It is cozy. It was clean and the tiny kitchen was well stocked. The garage and laundry facilities were a plus as was the keyless entry. We found street parking as well. The property management people were responsive. The only reason I give it a 4 star rating is that the lighting was very dim so it was difficult to read in the cottage which I love to do on vacation. Because it was Christmas week, I didn't think to call the property manager about this but she indicated that they would have provided better lighting if they had been informed...and that is customer service.

201 Ruby The property was advertised on AirBNB. According to the sight there was only a pin marked to indicate location. Only after the booking process was an address provided and the location was different. The property is located on a corner lot with traffic noise a factor. Also, a large home was under construction across the street, adding to noise level. There was also an infestation of flies and cockroaches. A fix it form was submitted to property manager with no response. Of my many years of if renting on the island, this was my least enjoyable. Response from Newport Beach Vacation Properties; Wednesday, August 14, 2019 Hi Erin, We understand your frustration andwe wish Airbnb could give a more exact location before booking and we wish we could control the construction noise from the neighbors. We appreciate your feedback about the bugs and will be sure to fix this. Thanks - NBVP Team

Great Location but needs Major TLC Pros: <br/>-Staying on Balboa Island (instead of the craziness of the peninsula) was a good fit for our family.<br/>-Ruby Street itself is the only street on the island to have a beach (on the bay) with calm water, roped off from boat traffic, that is great for little ones . <br/>-Marine Street (main street with shops and restaurants) is a 10 minute walk. In those 3 respects, the home is in a great location.<br/>-When a key wasn't left at check-in that we needed to get into the garage to access our vehicle) AND a doorknob fell off in our hand, making a closet inaccessible, NBVP took care of those things by the next morning.<br/><br/>Cons:<br/>-The house was STIFLING. There is a barometer inside the house which consistently showed the living room being at or just over 80 degrees. This was the COOLEST part of the home. We opened every window and door we could, ran fans, and it was still very uncomfortable. I would not stay here in the summer if you have a baby or elderly person in your group.<br/><br/>-The master bedroom had a very strong smell of mildew that never entirely went away, despite opening up the house everyday. It was particularly strong in the closet. (I suspect there was water damage at some point.) <br/><br/>-201 Ruby is at the corner of Ruby and Park Ave. Park Ave. is one of the busiest streets on the island. You will have constant loud traffic/noise going past the house, (motorcycles, bikes, etc.) <br/><br/>-There is construction (a new home build) right across the street. The work started just after 7 every weekday and on Saturday. We are early risers, so the noise didn't wake us, but the constant hammering and sawing was incredibly annoying.<br/><br/>*The house has an insect problem, specifically, with roaches. I saw 5 roaches outside (near the grill and back door.) The night before we left, I found 2 live roaches INSIDE the house. Contacted property management 2x - no response.* Response from Newport Beach Vacation Properties; Wednesday, August 14, 2019 Hi Sarah, We're so glad you enjoyed the great location on Balboa Island. We are sorry to hear the house was hot and will be sure to make sure there are even more fans to help cool it down. We apologize for the insects and we have made sure to fix this issue.
