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).

Departure housekeeping service does NOT include: Removing spots (such as coffee, wine, and food) from carpets, rugs, and upholstery; unclogging sewer lines due to paper overload (or items other than tissue put into toilets); cleaning major food spills or baked-on food from appliances; cleaning BBQ; washing/loading dirty dishes; moving furniture back to its original place; window washing to remove fingerprints; laundering multiple sets of sheets and bath linens; removal of paper, food, or foreign items from gas fireplace; removal of sand and pine needles from hot tub (where applicable). If your rental has a hot tub, please wash sandy feet before using, and keep it covered when not in use.

All landscaping, furnishings, appliances, and all mechanical, electrical, gas and plumbing fixtures will be properly used by all occupants, and Monterey Bay Vacation Rentals will be immediately notified of any problem or malfunction.  All repairs or replacements caused by the occupant(s) and/or their guests, excluding ordinary wear and tear, and including repair of drain blockages or stoppages unless caused by defective plumbing parts or tree roots invading sewer lines, will be charged to the credit card provided to secure this reservation. Checking "I have read and agree to these policies" and/or completing this reservation, accepting keys, or taking occupancy to the Premises, shall be proof of authorization to charge said credit card accordingly.

Check in: 3 pm or later

Keys and/or entry codes to the Premises will be available at 3 pm on the arrival date listed in the reservation.

Note:  As we often have guests departing the day you arrive, early check-in or storage of luggage in the room before 3 pm on the day of arrival is permitted only by prior arrangement, for which there may be an additional fee.

Check out: 11 am or earlier

As we often have guests arriving the day you check out, late checkout is permitted only by prior arrangement, for which there may be an additional fee. You will be charged a late checkout fee for any time past check out that the Premises is still occupied without prior arrangement. Contact your local representative immediately if your departure may be delayed.

Unauthorized holding over is subject to a minimum charge of 1.5 times the prorated daily rate. Charges for holding over may also include the cost of alternative housing for any guests who may be displaced, as well as any additional housekeeping fees that may be incurred as a result. Checking "I have read and agree to these policies,” or completing this reservation, accepting keys, or taking occupancy to the Premises shall be proof of authorization to charge said credit card accordingly.

We think that Pura Vida is a greet holiday home to rent - it is perfect for a family - you can hear the ocean waves crashing at only the 4th home back from the water - and you can see the ocean from the living room - the walk to the beach is just a few feet away - also, the home is just a short walk from the shops and restaurants in the Ocean Avenue area - we highly recommend this rental home

What do you get when you mix luxury and location? With a touch of Tuscany, the charm of Carmel, and the sand just steps away, this dreamy beach house has it all.

The living room features wood plank floors, a rough-sawn peaked ceiling, a comfortable overstuffed sofa and chairs, a Samsung 4000k Ultra HD TV, and a large wood-burning fireplace (with gas starter) to keep you warm on chilly nights. There are two indoor dining areas - one in the living room and another in the gourmet kitchen.

The kitchen is straight out of a magazine: ivory-painted cabinetry and a contrasting natural wood island, gleaming granite, tumbled stone, and alabaster lighting fixtures. When you're not enjoying one of Carmel's fabulous restaurants you'll prepare meals here with pleasure: the kitchen includes a SubZero side-by-side refrigerator, a professional Thermador gas cooktop with a grill, a Bosch dishwasher—even a Krups coffeemaker and bean grinder. There's a powder room and a stack Bosch washer/dryer in an alcove off the kitchen; multiple French doors open to a Carmel stone patio with a gas grill on one side, and an arbor-covered veranda on the other.

The master suite upstairs has a Queen sized bed and small balconies that overlook the garden and a peek of the ocean. The private sitting area has a Samsung TV in an armoire, and the en suite bath with tub/shower is finished with soft, sand-colored travertine and high end fixtures.

A second guest room upstairs is a symphony of soft blues, reflecting the ocean views. Soothing, cream-colored walls, a full sized bed, and a private bath with a tub/shower combine to make this a lovely retreat. Downstairs, the third guest room has a Twin trundle bed, a private bath with shower, and French doors that open to the backyard.

The literal definition of pura vida is "pure life," but South of the border the real meaning is closer to, "This is living!" Guests lucky enough to stay at Pura Vida will no doubt agree.

A wonderful home

We were lucky enough to stay in this home for a longer term. The home is lovely with warm colors and a nice modern kitchen that brings in natural light. It was perfect for a family of three, but it could easily work for a larger family for a vacation term. Location is fabulous with a short walk downhill to Carmel beach. We miss our bench down by the sea that we walked to almost everyday to gaze at the ocean.

highly recommended

The house is beautiful and comfortable for about four to five guests in three rooms. The house is two blocks from the beach and gives great views of the sunset.

Manager Response

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! Pura Vida is one of our very favorite homes, and the location can't be beat.
