& Safety Language
As part of our effort to help you relax and enjoy your stay,
we have partnered with Safely.com to provide you with the below protection. The
cost of this protection has been included in your rental rate and fees and
covers you for accidental damages during your stay in accordance with the terms
of the coverage.
The SafelyStay, Inc. Trust and Safety Fee includes up to
$10,000 of coverage for accidental contents damage and up to $1,000,000
coverage for accidental property damage and bodily injury. Complete terms
regarding the Trust and Safety coverage can be found at https://safely.com/terms. Any deductible or minimum claim amount will
be the responsibility of the Renter, but the Rental Agent will assist with the
processing of your claim by using the form of Renter’s payment on file and you
hereby authorize us to make that charge for the applicable deductible.
You will often find a locked closet within the home or
condo. This area is off-limits to Guests as it holds the homeowner's property.
Accessing this area or tampering with the door or lock will result in
additional charges to the Renter and possible police reports being filed.
Many thermostats are preset to not go below 70 degrees. It
is imperative that you follow this rule regardless if the thermostat is preset.
During Florida's hot and humid summers setting the AC below 70 degrees will
cause the system to freeze. When this occurs, we are at the mercy of an HVAC
vendor to correct any problems. Additionally, if any exterior doors are left
open for a prolonged period, the air conditioning must be turned off. If the
vendor finds the issue to be caused by Guest negligence, the Renter will be
held responsible for the service fee.

your stay, you may refill the tank and send the receipt to Guestservices@destinpointerealty.com for a refund. If you cannot fill it yourself, don't
