The property is located in a residential area with strict curfew laws associated with “excessive noise”. Please keep noise levels to a minimum. The hot tub is sanitized, refilled and chemicals replenished prior to your arrival; therefore, it may not be warm until later in the evening. Shower, clean off sand and other contaminants before entering. If after your departure and our inspection, the hot tub is found dirty beyond normal use, requiring a partial or full drain and water change, because of misuse an additional $100 cleaning fee will be charged. Please do not add any type of soap products to the water. Please notify us immediately of any accidental damage to hot tub including broken jets, lid, etc.
