House rules and Q&A

A Kind Reminder...

On behalf of our owners, as well as for you our special guests, we ask for your kind cooperation. Please treat this home with the respect and care as you would your own home. We kindly ask for your assistance in remembering a few important things so you may enjoy the best and most memorable stay here on the Big Island of Hawaii.

If damage of any sort is noticed upon your arrival, please immediately notify management. We do inspections before your arrival; however, sometimes things can get missed.

Please also notify management immediately if anything is not in proper working order during your stay. We can not fix it if we are not aware of the problem. Smoking is strictly prohibited in or immediately around all of our units and/or homes (incl. unit lanais). There will be a charge of up to $500 if any evidence of smoking is found.

Kindly maintain a clean house throughout your visit.  Bugs love dirty counters, left trash and dirty dishwashers. Upon your departure the only towels left unclean should be those used during your last day. One towel per guest plus the bed linens from each bed. The housekeeper will take care of the items used during your last day. Please do not make the beds before you leave. Please put all dirty dishes in the dishwasher and start the dishwasher before you leave.

Kindly return everything you may have moved during your stay to its original position. Please do not rearrange furniture.

Please collect and carry all your rubbish, bottles and cans to the dumpster, there is a $25 trash removal fee if it is not disposed of upon departure.

Kindly check all the closets, drawers and under the beds for any misplaced articles. We are not responsible for any items left behind.

Kindly remember to turn off appliances, fans and air conditioning (if/when applicable).

Due to back to back bookings, there is a charge of $50.00 for excessive cleaning (excess trash & dishes, incl. sand), a $30 charge per excess load of linens and carpet stain removal as quoted by a local vendor.

THANK YOU for staying with us, and we hope you have a great vacation.

The Boundless Hawaii Management Team.


GENERAL Q&A

Why do I need to acknowledge all this information?
Our properties are not owned by us. We have the responsibility to assure our owners as well as our guests that we have everyone’s best interest at heart. We try to provide the information you need to make your stay with us as easy and accommodating as possible prior to your arrival. But we have legal requirements that must be satisfied prior to your arrival. The forms in this part of our website cover those important areas and requirements.

What is all this paperwork?
One part consists of our contract with you so you know what to expect from your stay in advance. The secound part our the house rules.

When do you need to have this acknowledged?
Please set up an account with us at http://www.boundlesshawaii.com/subs/index.php and acknowledge the legal documents BEFORE you start your travel. Preferably you take care of this right after confirming your reservation. We would like to make sure you are in the system so that your reservation is secured. We cannot confirm your reservation until such time we have received acknowledgement of the required documentation.

The website asks for the number people in my party. What if that changes?
Just let us know in advance and we will be happy to update your online registration.

What is Vacation Rental Damage Insurance and Why do I need it?
The CSA Vacation Rental Damage Insurance plan covers unintentional damages to the rental unit interior that might occur during your stay. The policy will pay a maximum benefit of $3,000. This is in lieu of a cash of equivalent amount.

Can I mail it back?
You really don't have to as you can acknowledge all of your legal documents online. This takes the burden out of scanning, emailing, faxing or mailing of documents, and it is easier for you to manage your reservations with us.

When do I get my directions to the property and how do I get in?
We collect a down payment from you upon making your reservation. The balance will be due 60 days prior to your arrival. After we have received your payment in full, you will receive directions and other valuable information 2-3 weeks before your arrival. We change security and lock box codes frequently and want to make sure you have the most updated information upon arrival. Once you receive your final check-in instructions, make certain you keep that paperwork with your travel papers. You will need it to locate your property, reference gate, lock box and internet codes if/where applicable.
