Isle of Palms Addendum
ADDENDUM TO RESERVATION AGREEMENT FOR UNITS LOCATED IN THE CITY OF ISLE OF PALMS
The city of the Isle of Palms recently enacted a series of ordinances and has increased enforcement of previously existing ordinances in an effort to balance the needs of year-round residents with the needs of short-term vacationers. This addendum is not intended to be a substitute for the actual ordinances but a brief summary of what we consider to be some of the major regulations that our guests should be aware of.
- The City limits the maximum number of persons and vehicles allowed on a rental property at any time. Please check with Island Realty since stricter limits probably apply to your rental.
- The maximum number of overnight occupants is stated on page one of the Reservation Agreement.
- The maximum number of vehicles allowed on the property is stated on page one of the Reservation Agreement.
