Every Hostvacations home is a little different — and the maximum occupancy changes depending on the size of the property and local laws and ordinances. To view the maximum occupancy for the home you’re interested in booking; please check the top of the listing beneath the property name.
All overnight visitors and day visitors count toward this occupancy number. We do not include children under 1 year of age in our occupancy count, but we do ask that you include them in the infant section and on the guest occupancy forms.
To help you prepare for your trip, here are some helpful tips on how to be a considerate vacation rental guest.
• Review your property listing, your rental agreement, house rules, and pre-stay email to make sure you understand the rules that apply to your rental
• Prior to your arrival, contact Hostvacations or your Guest Contact to communicate any expectations or special needs you may have
• Make sure your Guest Contact knows what time you expect to arrive at the property
• Report all issues with the property to your Guest Contact as soon as you are aware of them; we want to know.
• Be respectful of the neighborhood and any neighbors that you meet. We are all trying to create a welcoming and positive experience for each other. Remember the Louis Armstrong version of “It’s a wonderful world.”
• Quiet times are between then 9:30 pm and 8:30 am. During that time no sound other than normal conversational tones, loud toys, toys rolling on hard surfaces, running or noisy walking. Our properties are designed and cater to guests looking for fun, peace, and quiet.
• Post a review of your stay to help guide future travelers
