Ali is correct. Our association rules are very strict about parking (Not as bad as South Lake Tahoe in some places - $1000 fines - ouch!) After 10pm it needs to be quiet - even when getting out of cars after a fun night out. No pets in the house rules, mean just that, no pets, even if a friend brings one over for a few hours. Our association penalizes us sometimes for these infractions. Of course, I have to pass on those expenses. Ali took good care of our home, there would be no other reason to take her security deposit. It is a lovely home, close to everything and a private beach in a peaceful environment as you can see in our other reviews. BUT if our house rules aren't for you, I totaly understand, rent elsewhere. We want our home to be a FIVE star experience for those who stay with us.
