Important Safety and Use Instructions:

1)         WARNINGS: Persons using any medication or anyone with a medical condition including, but not limited to, obesity, heart disease, low or high blood pressure, thyroid disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes or circulatory system problems should consult a physician before using the hot tub since the hot tub affects heart rate, blood pressure and circulation. Pregnant women, and women who may possibly be pregnant, should not use the hot tub. Excessive water temperatures have a high potential for causing fetal damage during the early months of pregnancy. The use of alcohol or drugs in or around the tub and/or swimming pool is prohibited. The hot tub may cause lightheadedness and use of these substances may lead to unconsciousness with the possibility of drowning. Individuals using medications should consult their physician before using the hot tub since some medications may induce drowsiness, while other medications may affect heart rate, blood pressure and circulation.

Hyperthermia (heat stroke) is a dangerous condition brought about by excessive heat. The symptoms include: sweating, dizziness, nausea, light-headed, convulsions, increased pulse rate, shallow breathing, possible unconsciousness. If you suspect hyperthermia, get medical help immediately.

2)         Before each use of the hot tub, measure the water temperature. Water in the tub should never exceed 104 degrees. Water temperatures between 100 degrees and 104 degrees are considered safe for a healthy adult. Lower water temperatures are recommended for young children. If there are any problems with the hot tub and/or swimming pool, including any mechanical, electrical or chemical, please call the Manager immediately and do not enter the hot tub and/or swimming pool. Never use the hot tub and/or swimming pool alone. Do not permit children to use the hot tub and/or swimming pool unless they are closely supervised at all times. While the hot tub and/or pool are being serviced, Manager asks that you keep children and pets away from the hot tub and/or swimming pool area. Do not stay in the hot tub for extended periods of time. Set reasonable time limits (10 minutes is recommended). The hot tub must always be left covered and locked when not in use. This is for the safety of your family and any children in the area. Read and follow any safety instructions and/or signs posted in the home and on/around the hot tub and/or swimming pool areas.

3)         Exercise extreme caution when entering or leaving the hot tub and/or swimming pool. Be sure of secure footing before applying your full weight as water refraction can be misleading. Never use any soaps, oils or fragrance of any type in the hot tub and/or swimming pool. This could cause damage to the equipment and affect the chemical balance of the tub and/or pool, leading to a less enjoyable environment and a possible dangerous situation. Never remove the thermometer or floating chemical dispenser from the hot tub and/or pool. These must remain in constant contact with the water to provide the maximum amount of safety. Always shower before using the hot tub and/or swimming pool. DANGER - Risk of Electric Shock. Do not permit any electrical appliance, such as a light, telephone, radio or television within 15 feet of the hot tub and/or swimming pool.

If a Guest checks in before Arrival Date, an additional full day’s rent will be charged, payable upon taking occupancy.

Nonetheless, in the event of such other unavailability of a rental property for other unforeseen or natural circumstances, including but not limited to, road/bridge obstructions that prevent access to the Property, or institution of curfews or roadblocks, through no fault of Manager or its agents, Manager agrees to use reasonable efforts to accommodate Guest by reserving the right to move, relocate, reassign or change the rental property, and Guest agrees that such circumstances will not warrant in any way a refund or reimbursement of rental monies under this Agreement.

Manager recommends that Guest obtain Travel or Vacation Insurance policies; however, Manager makes no warranties or representations to Guest relating to any Travel or Vacation Insurance policies.

(d)        Cancellations, abandonment or early departure by Guest for any reason (excluding mandatory evacuation) do not warrant any refund of any monies paid by Guest. In the event of a mandatory evacuation order issued by a county or otherwise, Guest and all Property occupants agree to comply with such order, and Manager after attempting to move, relocate or reassign Guest to a comparable or similar rental property, may agree in this specific circumstance, in Manager’s sole discretion, to refund, credit or reimburse Guest of rental monies for only the dates affected by the mandatory evacuation.
