Rentals properties require a one-week minimum rental and run from
Saturday to Saturday. Arrival check-in time is after 2 p.m. and
departure check-out is no later than 10 a.m.
All properties have strict occupancy limits which must not be exceeded
at any time. Except for two properties that will permit a pet with
advance permission from Sylvan Rentals (one
in Harwich and one in Chatham), absolutely
no pets are permitted inside or out at any rentals. Also, many properties
have a no smoking restriction. If you or a member of your party
smokes, please inform the Sylvan agent when you are making a reservation.
Except for a few homes, all properties are housekeeping rentals,
which means no maid service or linens (sheets, towels, pillow cases)
are provided. Houses must be completely cleaned on departure, left
ready for the next tenant. Sylvan Rentals inspects each property
between tenants to ensure it is left clean and in good repair. There
is a cleaning/security deposit required for all rentals (amount
varies with each property). This is refunded within 60 days of departure
providing the property was left clean and in good condition.
A few homes include departure cleaning and/or linens. This is noted
in the property description. These
properties must still be left tidy, "broom clean" and in a reasonable
state on departure, with all dishes and linens washed and put away.
At a minimum, all properties provide full kitchens with all the
basics for cooking and cleaning and at least one bathroom with a
shower and/or tub. A pillow, blanket, mattress pad and bedspread
is provided for each bed in the property.
All rentals have a telephone with free local calls. Please note
however that all long distance calls must
be charged to your
home phone or credit card -- including Internet and E-mail access
numbers that are not in the local calling area.
Rental payments are accepted in cash or check. Credit cards are
not accepted. For rentals of two weeks or longer, a deposit equivalent
to 1/2 the total rent is due when the lease made; the balance is
payable on arrival. Payment in full is due with the lease for one
