    1. BLUE WAVE VACATION RENTALS’ REPLY – This guest accepted the rental conditions concerning the vehicle limit and later complains about it in this review. Raves about the home and gave 3 stars for Accuracy. The maximum vehicle limit of “4” was given up front (Trailers, Golf Carts, Side-by-sides each count as a vehicle). This guest accepted these conditions at booking. At one point, they had 6 vehicles plus a large trailer, side-by-side and golf cart. Ultimately, they ran out of room from all the visitors & guests and started parking at our property next door where they did not have permission to do so. We received multiple complaints from our neighbors about a “party” going on at this home. When I came out, the music was extremely loud. Our homes have unintrusive decibel monitors built into our security system. 91db downstairs and 85db upstairs in open air. Even though this was outside or our “quiet hours”, this guest rented through Airbnb. Therefore, guests are expected to comply with Airbnb’s Community Policy on Guest Reliability Standards.
      We state our Rules, Maximum Occupancy, Vehicle Limits and the fact that we do not allow parties in multiple places in our listings as well as our other booking channels and rental agreement.
      I would state this to anyone looking at possibly booking our homes; If you don’t agree or intend to follow our rules, then please move along. We state this in our listing description – “RESPONSIBLE ADULTS ONLY: Please take the time to read through and understand “House Rules” prior to booking. This is NOT a party house. This home is intended for responsible adults and families only and should be respected as such”.
      Our SuperHost status with Airbnb along with our multiple 5-star review show that we do provide a great home to responsible adults.
