5.) SAFETY RESPONSIBILITY
Guest(s) should inspect the home and familiarize themselves with ALL exits, fire extinguisher locations, amenities, furniture placement and potential hazards. Some properties may be situated on bodies of water or waterways and some may have boats and/or private docks for Guest use. Guest(s) acknowledges that there are inherent risks associated with property located along rivers, creeks, lakes, ponds or other bodies of water, and Guest(s) agree that water recreational activities as well as boat and dock usage are at their OWN RISK. If using a boat, it is the responsibility of Guest(s) to comply with Georgia boating laws. Guest(s) release Owner and Manager from any liability for damages resulting from injury to persons or property, or loss of life sustained in or about the rental property and improvements thereon, or on the roads, docks, bodies of water or waterways located on or appurtenant thereto by any persons whatsoever.
DOCKS – Some properties may or may not have boats and/or private docks for Guest use. Guest(s) understand that boat and dock usage are at their OWN RISK and WILL NOT hold Manager and/or Owner accountable for any injury that might occur. The following rules and regulations apply to the use of the private docks:
Swimming is a fun and healthy activity, but it also involves some risks. To ensure your safety and enjoyment, please follow these guidelines:
– Swim at your own risk. There is no lifeguard on duty, so you are responsible for your own actions and consequences.
– Always wear a life jacket while in the water, especially if you are not a strong swimmer or have a medical condition.
– Stay away from moving boats and other watercraft. They may not see you or be able to stop in time.
– Use a ladder to get back onto the dock. Do not attempt to climb onto the dock without a ladder, as you may injure yourself or damage the dock.
– Do not place any part of your body under the platforms or docks. There may be sharp objects or metal that can cut or puncture you.
Water safety for children is especially important, as they may not be aware of the dangers or how to react in an emergency. Please follow these additional rules:
– Children age 10 and under must always wear a life jacket when on the docks or walkway. This will prevent them from falling into the water or drowning if they do.
– No running on the docks and walkways. Running can cause slips, falls, and collisions that can result in serious injuries or damage to property.
– Children swimming off the swim platform must always wear a life jacket and be supervised by a responsible adult. The adult should be able to see and hear the children at all times and intervene if necessary.
Smoking on docks is prohibited for your safety and the safety of others. Gasoline vapors and accidental leaks/spills can create a fire hazard that can cause injury or death. For this reason:
– No smoking and no open fires are permitted on the docks. This includes any grills, candles, lanterns, or other sources of flame or heat.
– If you have a grill mounted on your boat, it cannot be used while at the dock; you must be in open water. This will prevent any sparks or flames from reaching the dock or other boats.
– Dispose of ashes and butts properly in an ashtray or trash can. Do not throw lighted butts into the water. Floating fuel or vapors can ignite and cause an explosion.
– No fireworks of any kind are allowed on the property or on the docks. Fireworks are illegal, dangerous, and disruptive to other guests and wildlife.
Fishing is a relaxing and enjoyable pastime, but it also requires some etiquette and caution. To avoid any conflicts or accidents, please follow these rules:
– Cabin renters may fish from the docks, but they must respect the rights and privacy of other guests and boat owners. Do not fish from someone else’s boat or dock without their permission.
– Keep the center walkways free of chairs, fishing poles, and tackle boxes so other guests can safely navigate. Do not block anyone’s access to their boat or cabin.
– Use caution when casting around boats and fuel lines. You may damage them or injure yourself or others if your hook gets caught.
Quiet hours are in effect from 10:00 PM to 8:00 AM every day. This is to ensure that everyone can have a peaceful and restful stay at our resort. During quiet hours:
– Keep your noise level to a minimum. Do not play loud music, shout, honk, or make any other unnecessary noise that may disturb other guests or wildlife.
– Be respectful of your neighbors and their sleeping preferences. Some people may go to bed early or wake up late, so please do not knock on their doors or windows unless it is an emergency.
– Enjoy the natural beauty and tranquility of our surroundings. You may see stars, fireflies, owls, deer, or other nocturnal creatures that are rare in urban areas.
Personal Items on Boats – Personal items should be properly stored, and boats covered and locked when not in use. Every effort is made to keep the docks secure but Manager is not responsible for items missing and/or damaged due to theft, wind and/or waves. Ropes, hoses, and electrical cords must be coiled on racks or otherwise routed so as not to obstruct walkways. Center walkways MUST always be kept clear. Dock boxes are not allowed.
• Hazardous Materials – Do not allow waste, fuel, oil and/or chemicals to spill into the water. Any cleaning products used must be biodegradable.
• Trash Disposal – Trash receptacles at the docks are for small items only. If you have large bags of trash, take them to the dumpster. Do not leave the trash bags beside the trash cans as they will attract unwanted pests.
INCLEMENT WEATHER –Guest(s) are responsible for monitoring the weather and road conditions before arriving. Guest(s) can contact the office to inquire about the conditions, but Manager cannot guarantee or predict the weather and/or road conditions in the region. Road conditions may change quickly and/or remain impassable for long periods of time.
• Manager will allow Guest(s) to reschedule before seventy-two (72) hours of arrival. If Guest(s) do not reschedule within this time frame, the agreement will not be changed or modified in any way.
• If Guest(s) are held over, they will be charged the full nightly rate for each additional night.
• Guest(s) will pay for any additional services they request.
• Guest(s) who arrive during this time and check in (accepting keys/taking occupancy of the property), understand that they are proceeding at their own risk and should make appropriate arrangements.
• Guest(s) who do not show up, turn around, or leave early, will voluntarily forfeit the reservation.
• Guest(s) understand that power outages may occur at any time for various reasons, including inclement weather, and that SCCR is not liable for outages caused by factors beyond Property Manager’s control.
The information and listings of the properties on the Manager’s website(s) are based on reliable sources and are accurate to the best of our knowledge. However, we cannot guarantee that there are no errors or omissions. Please contact our staff if you have any questions or concerns about the data and information provided.
The Owner and the Manager are not responsible for any events that may affect the Guest(s) occupancy that are beyond their control, such as natural disasters, government actions, fire, strikes, war, bad weather and/ or noise from nearby construction sites. Under these circumstances, NO REFUNDS, DISCOUNTS OR COMPENSATIONS will be given.
RIGHT OF ENTRY
The Guest(s) agrees that the Manager has the right to access the rental property for any reason, such as conducting an inspection or making repairs. The Manager/Broker may also access the premises to show the property to potential buyers, but only with the permission of the current Guest(s).
