Policies

MontereyRentals.com Policies - by checking “I have read and agree to these policies,” or by completing this reservation, accepting keys or taking occupancy to the Premises, I signify my acceptance of and agreement with the policies herein.  

Check in time is 3 pm.  Check out time is 11 a.m.

Cancellations

This Agreement may be cancelled up to 60 days prior to arrival. The full amount of the rental is due within 60 days of arrival and is non-refundable after that date. The down payment, made at the time of the reservation, is completely non-refundable.

A $35 change fee will be charged to the credit card used to make the original reservation for any change to an existing reservation.

Occupancy

The Premises are located in a residential neighborhood that includes both short-term guests and year-round residents who enjoy living in a tranquil environment. Maximum occupancy rates are strictly enforced.

Special events and/or large parties, such as weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, birthday/anniversary celebrations, are strictly prohibited, and are a violation of the rental property owner's rental permit. A small dinner party or gathering for no more than one and one half times the number of guests who are accommodated at the Premises is permitted.

Note: If you are planning an event during your stay, please be sure you have arranged for a venue other than the Premises (contact us for suggestions of alternate venues). If you did not understand these policies when you booked your reservation and wish to cancel your stay, please contact us within 24 hours of making your reservation, and we will fully refund any payment made and cancel any future obligation.

Security Deposits and Accidental Damage Safeguard

Security deposits (if any) are charged to the credit card used to secure the reservation seven days prior to arrival and returned seven days after departure, or an itemized statement indicating the basis for and the disposition of the deposit or any part of it will be provided.

Security deposits, if any, will be held in the trust account of Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals. All or any portion of the security deposit, upon termination of occupancy, may be used as reasonably necessary, to (i) pay any sums still due; (ii) repair damage, excluding ordinary wear and tear, caused by the occupants, by any guests, or by any licensees of the occupants; (iii) clean the Premises; (iv) replace or return personal property or appurtenances.

Accidental Damage Safeguard (“ADS”) is a non-refundable fee for which Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals assumes the liability associated with minor accidental damages to the rented premises or its contents during occupancy relative to this reservation. ADS is not insurance, nor should it be interpreted as such. ADS allows Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals to waive occupants’ responsibility for reported accidental damage up to a maximum aggregate amount of $1,500.00.

ADS becomes effective upon check-in (and may not be purchased after check-in) and terminates upon departure of the occupants or at 11 am on the last day of the rental term (“check-out time”), whichever occurs first. Unreported damages, non-accidental damages, excluded damages, or damages exceeding $1,500.00 dollars are the sole responsibility of the occupants. The purchase of ADS does not in any way negate occupants’ responsibility to care for the Premises as if it were occupants’ own home. The cost to repair damage attributable to occupants or occupants’ invitees due to intentional acts, willful misconduct, gross negligence, abuse of the Premises, violation of these rental policies, or animals will not be paid under the ADS, and remain the responsibility of the occupants.

Damage must be reported to Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals prior to “check-out time.” The ADS applies only to loss or damage to the rented premises or its contents. The applicability of ADS to damaged property (and any determination of the extent of damage and/or the cost of repairs thereof) shall be in the sole and absolute discretion of Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals.

Note:  We understand that accidents happen. You obviously do, too, since you have made this purchase—so please do not hesitate to contact us if accidental damage occurs during your stay. We want to know about it, so that 1) your ADS is applicable, and 2) we can make repairs for both you and future guests.

Cleaning and cleaning fees

-Potential extra fee: there is a $25/hour charge for excessive cleaning beyond the standard checkout cleaning.

Departure housekeeping service includes: Replenishing soap and paper products, vacuuming carpets and rugs, cleaning bathrooms, cleaning crumbs and minor food splatters, unloading dishwasher, dusting furniture and other surfaces, laundering one set of sheets per bed and bath linens that are hung in bathrooms upon arrival, cleaning out wood-burning fireplace, and regular chemical servicing of hot tub (where applicable).

Our family loved this home! The backyard had great landscaping and was a peaceful place to sit. The short walk down the hill to Asilomar Beach was easy and well worth it! We could hear the ocean while sitting in the back yard. It was easy to find and go to restaurants, grocery stores, and of course the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We would love to go again!

Walk through the front door: the view goes straight through the living room to wall-to-wall glass framing a lovely garden. Newly-furnished, this single story home has oak floors, carpeted bedrooms, and a wood-burning fireplace. Tastefully updated, it features three bedrooms and two skylit baths: one is finished in rainforest green marble with a huge walk-in shower; the second (shared by the other two bedrooms) is done in peach marble with a tub plus a generous shower. The kitchen features quarry tile floors, gray granite counters, and sleek black appliances including a Dacor oven and five-burner gas cook top. Two barstools are the perfect perch for coffee, a snack, or a meal with a peaceful garden view. Located on a quiet, dead end street, it’s just a block from golf, two blocks from the sea, and a short distance to downtown Pacific Grove.

A Haven in Pacific Grove

Reviewed by Christina

Date 01/04/2017

My sisters and I rented this house for the second year and genuinely love it. We love the open plan living room/dining room, great for entertaining, which culminates in floor to ceiling picture windows overlooking the garden. The kitchen is wonderful for multiple cooks and we hosted our family for Christmas Eve and Christmas dinners. I wish that the house were closer to downtown, but it's just off of Asilomar and near the beach and shore walks. The only negative -- the house heats unevenly and tends to be much cooler on the kitchen/master bedroom side and too warm in the other bedrooms. We turned the heat off at night to compensate.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location!

My husband and I spent a the month of February, 2016 at Butterfly Haven! The neighborhood is incredibly quiet. The only sound you will hear is the pounding surf a VERY short distance away. A few things came up regarding the house. Michelle answered our every need immediately!! The backyard is beautiful. A great sunny place to read the paper in the morning. The open concept living room /dinning is very spacious. Lots of couch space for everyone to sit. Loved the work space in the kitchen and the cook top!!! We have rented other houses in Pacific Grove over the past 4 years, we are sold on this rental. Our children came down every weekend and they all agreed this house is wonderful!!! We will be back!!!

Garden surprise

The house was well maintained, probably the cleanest summer rental of many I have rented. The décor was well appointed, updated bathrooms and kitchen, well equipped. Nice surprise was the large garden with a charming area of benches and table under the watchful eye of th " Wine God" ( statue).

The house was perfect for our needs. Not only the space but the location. We were disappointed to find dirty dishes not only in the dishwasher but in the cupboards and drawers. We believe the wrong cycle had been used on the dishwasher. We appreciated the amenities -- shampoos, soaps, lotions and plenty of toilet tissue. I would suggest the rental agency know more about what is in the rental that the customer does not have to supply. I would stay at Butterfly Haven again.

Decent, but not worth the "cleaning" fees

Reviewed by AdikBadik1

The accommodations were good. Our issue was with the cleaning fee and the fact that they expected US to do most of the cleaning. We traveled with 4 adults and 4 kids, kids ranging in age from 16 weeks-5 yrs old. All the kids are VERY well behaved and we are all clean freaks. We barely spent any time at the house, since we were out and about exploring Monterey; we ate only a small breakfast at the house 1 morning, so the rental was pretty much clean when we were ready to leave, and before our last day, I had already emptied out some of the trashcans since one was being used for dirty diapers. The rental property charges a $200 cleaning fee BUT they expect you to wash ALL dirty dishes, EMPTY all trashcans, take all the used sheets off the bed and pile them near the laundry room...and to top it all off, they would "appreciate it" if you'd start a load of laundry for them. EXCUSE ME?!? Then why in the world are we paying a $200 cleaning fee if we're expected to do all of this? AND since they charge a $1000 deposit a week beforehand and don't refund it until about 3 weeks AFTER you're done with the rental, we did all that they asked. So this clean freak family left the place pretty much spotless, probably cleaner than it was upon check-in (since I am anal about disinfecting everything). And for that reason, I say it's not worth renting. The point of a vacation with a $200 cleaning fee is to relax and NOT be cleaning, and NOT worry if your kids touch the windows and leave a few fingerprints. Next time we'll be staying at a Hotel instead, where they do all of the cleaning for us and DON'T charge a $1000 deposit.FYI: Not walking distance to Monterey aquarium or Dennis the Menace park, but very close to a bus stop that will take you to Monterey, and will accommodate strollers. The bus ride is $1.50 per adult, kids free

Manager Response

We couldn’t agree more that the whole point of a vacation is to relax: we definitely do not want our guests to spend their time cleaning. In the past, our check out instructions asked guests to start the dishwasher and a load of towels before leaving, but we have since clarified that this is entirely OPTIONAL. (In many cases, our housekeepers have only four hours to clean an entire house between check ins, so starting the dishwasher/washer really gives them a leg up timewise and is most appreciated - but it is not a requirement.)

Thanks to your input, we have reviewed our policies and deleted references to removing the sheets and taking the trash to the outside bins. (And you no longer have to worry that you’ll be charged for fingerprints on the windows.)

Though our cleaning fees may appear high - especially to people from other parts of the country - our housekeepers are all licensed, bonded, and insured. We live in a very expensive area, and we make sure our staff is paid a living wage. In exchange, they are held to a very high standard and they are available on call 365 days a year.

One other note: our security deposits are now refunded seven days after arrival (instead of the 21 days allowed by law). We also offer a non-refundable $49 Accidental Damage Safeguard in lieu of a security deposit.

As you’ve discovered, renting a vacation home is vastly different than renting a hotel room. For some, a hotel (plus maid and room service) is the way to go; for others, all the comforts of home plus the value of not having to eat out at every meal makes a vacation rental a better choice. We certainly hope - no matter which you choose - that your next vacation is more restful than this one. We’re parents too, so we know you deserve it!

We enjoyed staying at this house.

I loved the all the windows in the house. The landscaping made the backyard private, so I left the blinds to the 3 large windows open most of the time to enjoy the beauty of the backyard.
