Neighbors: House Rules

The Kingdom Stays House Rules

In addition to all other precautions:
Each guest must confirm they have read, understand, and will abide by the full house rules:

Enforced 24/7
(house rules can vary slightly by location)

The house rules will be formally enforced and are very important to ensure a great experience
for each and every guest staying with us, so please read them carefully:

House Rules Highlights:

  • No Parties or Events

  • No Smoking

  • No Pets

  1. The platform chat is the primary method of communication.

  2. Local residents must communicate with us first before booking.

  3. The primary user must have a valid and updated phone number on the platform.

  4. Disclosure: A comprehensive background check by Checkr will be completed before reserving.

  5.  Accurately reporting the number of guests will be accounted for with outdoor entranceway cameras. It is required that you promptly communicate changes in the number of both guests staying the night a visitors (total/anytime guests). No more than 16 individuals are allowed on or in the property at any given time.

  6. No excessive noise allowed: this is defined as disruptive noise that can be heard at the neighbor's property line. The noise level will be monitored by a noise-level alert system.

  7. If there is any issue related to your stay, you are required to communicate this promptly to
    Kingdom Stays and allows a representative of Kingdom Stays to come and fix the issue at any
    the time during the stay.

  8. No more than 6 cars are allowed to be parked in the immediate vicinity, street, and
    neighborhood. This is to maintain the character and traffic flow of the neighborhood and will
    be formally enforced.

  9. There is a $50 late check-out fee unless otherwise communicated.

  10. Smoking is only allowed in the back of the house. Marijuana is not allowed on the premise
    under any circumstances due to how close the neighbors are. Immediate cancellation of the
    reservation and a $250 smoking fee are assessed for each day of the reservation if smoking of
    any kind is detected inside or in front of the property whatsoever. This means smoking is NOT
    allowed in front of the house, front porch, front yard, or back yard. This will be monitored by a smoke-detect monitoring system installed within the home and outside entranceway

    Local legislation requires a verification process upon check-in. This will come in the form of a
    quick, easy-to-use, online check-in form that can be done straight from your smartphone. Upon guest registration, you must certify that this is not the permanent residence of anyone

    Feel free to reach out to me with any situation you are not sure of or have any questions about.
    I am very understanding when it comes to most situations but do ask.

    Not following any combination of these rules can result in being responsible for any costs
    associated with the disruption of the following reservations. Violations can result in instant
    cancellation of the reservation without a refund.
