- House Maintenance: Your home is professionally cleaned and disinfected prior to your arrival.
While we don’t expect you to dust, scrub toilets or vacuum on your holiday, we would ask you to please keep the house clean and tidy (as it was when you arrived). Cleaning up spills immediately protects the finish, and keeping the kitchen clean prevents little critters from feasting on your leftovers. Only use appliances for their intended uses. If the vacation home requires more than normal cleaning after your stay, you will be assessed the additional cost.
Please help us maintain the home in a good and clean condition by following these simple procedures during your stay and at departure:

- Run the dishwasher with soiled dishes prior to checking out
- Dispose of all waste materials into specific bins outside as instructed upon arrival.
- Please clean countertops and stove top of any spills or sticky residue
- Please do not rearrange furniture in the house. Outdoor furniture stays outside, Indoor furniture stays inside! You may be assessed an additional cost to your stay if furniture is damaged from being inappropriately treated or the additional time to put furniture back in its designated spot.
- Odours - Please refrain from cooking foods or creating aromas that linger beyond your stay. If the odours remain and result in relocating the guests coming in after your same day departure, you will be assessed the cost to relocate for one night. Strong aromatic foods can be cooked outside on the grill/BBQ.
- Niagara Holiday Rentals reserves the right to enter the premises to perform maintenance and ensure the vacation home is kept in good repair.
Report all maintenance issues promptly. Just as might happen at your own well-maintained home, mechanical failures, disruption of services and other breakdowns can occur. Every effort will be made to correct the situation; however, no refunds or rate adjustments will be made for mechanical and service failures that are beyond our control. Report any damage or breakage upon occurrence so the matter can be settled before departure. Damages found by inspection crews upon departure will be billed and full payment for repairs will be collected via credit card.
- If bedding and or towels are stained, please do not attempt to clean, this may set the stain. Please let us know as soon as possible and definitely before your departure.
