Cancellations & Refunds will follow the Cancellation Policy on the platform you are booking on. O’Neal Vacation Rentals reserves the right to change reservation accommodations or refund the full balance should a specific property become unavailable due to circumstances beyond its control.

Guests will not be given any refund for issues related to noise ordinance violations. Possible violations include, but are not limited to, limiting sound amplification outdoors, over occupying parking areas, over occupying rental property, and failing to follow your agreement with the Management Company.

If there are any concerns with the property, please notify Management immediately to ensure that such issues may be remedied in a timely manner. The property will be subject to inspection upon reasonable notice to guest, which includes knocking on the door or ringing the doorbell before entry in the event that noise complaints are issued. The guest understands that this may occur anytime during the guest's stay if there is noise or reasonable suspicion of a party or any other violation of the house neighborhood rules or city ordinance.
• Occupancy Limits Our rental rates are based upon a maximum of two persons per bedroom. Children are counted in total occupancy, unless they are under the age of two years old. Guests who violate the occupancy limits (i.e., having more than two persons per bedroom) are in serious violation and breach of these Terms & Conditions, and O’Neal Vacation Rentals reserves the right to deny access or to require all guests to vacate the premises. No refund of monies will be issued due to violation of the house rules, noise ordinances, or occupancy limits.
• Private Pool – For properties with pools, they may be chemically serviced and cleaned regularly. Pool heat must be turned on in advance of your check-in and can take 24-48 hours to heat to the max temperature. We cannot guarantee temperatures and no refunds will be given for pools not reaching maximum temperatures. Please inquire about pricing for pool heat and we will be happy to assist. Tampering with the thermostat to increase the temperature will result in an additional charge and will be deducted from the security deposit. Please note that pools cannot be cooled to a lower temperature. The pool has been properly cleaned in advance of your arrival. However, we sometimes experience winds in the desert that can cause debris from Palm Trees and other materials to fall into the pool. Please advise the office if your pool is not clean, and we will make every effort to contact a pool cleaner, but please understand that WE CANNOT GUARANTEE that the pool person will be able to return to the property. In the event of any damages caused by tampering, the guest shall be responsible for the cost of said damages.
