NOISE AND EVENTS POLICY: Out of respect for our neighbors, large social events or gatherings (i.e. birthday parties, ceremonies, weddings, and receptions) at any of our rental properties are prohibited unless prior arrangements have been discussed and confirmed through our office. I understand that not adhering to the quiet hours or violating the events policy may result in immediate eviction and that no refund will be given for unused nights.
TOWN OF VAIL ORDINANCE: Vacation rental properties located within the Town of Vail must comply with the strict ordinance for guests staying in vacation retinal within the town limits. It is imperative that you adhere to the following:
- Quiet hours of 10 PM - 8AM MST
- Excess noise is defined as any noise that can be heard in another property
- Any other form of nuisance as deemed by the neighbors located near your rental property.
If guests are reported to the Town as being in violation of this ordinance, a fine of $2,000 will be applied. This fine will be passed along to the guest staying in the reported property and will automatically be charged to the credit card on file.
CHECK IN/OUT POLICIES:

ASSUMPTION OF RISKS:
There are risks inherent in and associated with the use of any property, including the rental property, which may include risks of injury to person or property or death. Certain risks may be more likely to occur in high altitude locales with severe climates, such as where the rental property is located. Call the rental company immediately if there is any matter about which you are uncertain or which you believe may present an unreasonable risk to you. Risks which may be inherent to the rental property and the location in which it is located may include, without limitation: wet, slippery, or icy conditions both inside and out; falling snow or ice; being in proximity of, or use of, a swimming pool, bathtub or hot tub including without limitation risks of, drowning, heart attack, stroke or reactions to pool or cleaning chemicals; allergic or other reaction to cleaning or “freshening” products; allergic or other reaction to manmade and synthetic materials; actions of third parties not under the control of the property manager or unit owner; theft of, or damage to, personal property; electric shock or other injury in the use, or misuse, of any electric appliance or mechanical devise; risk of injury in the use of garbage disposals, trash compactors, steam showers, saunas and other similar appliances. Pregnant females (or women who suspect they may be pregnant) may be subject to particular risks and should consult a physician before using a hot tub or spa. Alcohol and other state-altering substances should not be used in or around a pool, hot tub, bathtub or sauna. The rental guests assume these risks, whether enumerated or not, known or unknown, on their own behalf and on behalf of any person under any legal incapacity for whom the rental guests may be responsible.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:
RentVail's liability shall in no event exceed the amount of the rental payment received regardless of the kind or extent of injury, cause thereof, claim or legal theory advanced. The owner's liability shall in no event exceed the lesser of the rental payment received or the liability insurance then in place regardless of the kind or extent of injury, cause thereof, claim or legal theory advanced. Renter agrees to the foregoing and waives all right to claim damages in excess of the foregoing amounts, and agrees to be limited for all purposes to such amounts.
