(“Rental Agent” or “Utopian”), pursuant to which the Guest has agreed to rent the residence described above (the “Property”), for the duration of the Rental Term (Arrival Date to Departure Date) for the Total Rental Fees, other good and valuable consideration as described herein, including the above and following terms and conditions.
1. RENTAL DEPOSIT AND CANCELLATION POLICY
All deposits and/or subsequent payments made by the Guest are NON-REFUNDABLE. In the event of cancellation, any and all deposits or payments made by the Guest are NON-REFUNDABLE; Guest may purchase a travel protection insurance plan to cover the cost of any cancelled or interrupted travel plans, including deposits or payments to Utopian LVH, Inc. through CSA Travel Protection.

2. GUEST RESPONSIBILITY AND VACATION RENTAL DAMAGE PROTECTION
The Property is privately owned. Neither Utopian nor the owner of the Property (“Owner”) are responsible for any Guest accident, injury or illness, or loss of personal belongings. It is agreed that Guest expressly assumes the risk of any harm arising from Guest’s, or Guest’s permitted invitees, use of the Property. Guest agrees and accepts full responsibility for any damage to the Property and its contents during the Rental Term. Guest is required to purchase damage insurance protection or provide a $5,000 security deposit at the time of reservation. In the event of damage to the Property, Utopian will charge the Guest’s credit card on file for all damage related costs to the Property and its contents or apply such charges to Guest’s security deposit, as applicable. If a claim made through the Guest’s damage insurance is paid by Guest’s insurance, Utopian shall refund the amount charged to Guest’s credit card up to the amount paid by insurance. Should the insurance payment be less than the amount of damages claimed or damages exceed the security deposit, then Guest remains liable for the difference. Damages may include loss of income to the Property if the Property is rendered unrentable, in the sole and reasonable discretion of the Rental Agent, for any length of time due to damage caused by Guest.
Guest agrees that no more Guest’s invitees than the Maximum Occupancy, as identified above, shall be permitted on the Property at any time during the Rental Term, all of whom shall comply with the conditions and restrictions imposed upon Guest in this Agreement.
4. CONDITION AND USE OF PROPERTY
The Property is provided in “as is” condition. Rental Agent shall use its best efforts to ensure that all amenities in the Property are in good operating order. The amenities available for the Property are as further described in the Property listing. Rental Agent shall not be held responsible for such amenities’ failure to operate, but will make every effort to correct any issues as reported as quickly as possible. Guest acknowledges that use of amenities, such as hot tubs, pools, spas, fireplaces, decks, and the like, may be potentially dangerous and involve potential risks if improperly used, particularly with regard to children, and such use is at the Guest’s own risk. Guest shall use the Property for residential purposes only, in a careful manner to prevent any damage or loss to the Property, and keep the Property in clean and sanitary condition at all times. Guest and any additional permitted invitees shall refrain from loud noise and shall not disturb, annoy, endanger, or inconvenience the Property neighbors, nor shall Guest use the Property for any immoral, offensive or unlawful purposes, nor violate any local, state or federal law, homeowner association rules, nor commit waste or nuisance on or about the Property.

5. VIOLATION OF AGREEMENT
If Guest, or Guest’s invitees, should fail to comply with the terms, conditions, and obligations of this Agreement, including violations of the No Smoking, No Pets and No Events policies, at the discretion of Utopian or Owner, such violation by Guest, or Guest’s invitees, shall result in any or all of the following: a fine charged to Guest of the greater of $10,000 or 50% of the “Total” fees above, and/or damages charged to Guest, from such events including remedial cleaning, repair or replacement of damaged contents or fixtures, which may be charged to Guest’s or authorized credit card on file with the reservation, and/or Guest’s immediate eviction from the Property without refund of any monies paid for the Rental Term. Upon the demand of Utopian or the Owner, Guest shall immediately remove all Guest’s personal property, vacate, and surrender the Property in good order and free of damage. If any legal action by Utopian or the Owner is taken to enforce this Agreement, Utopian or Owner shall be entitled to its reasonable attorney’s fees and related costs.
6. NO ASSIGNMENT
Guest shall not assign the Property or permit the use of any portion of the Property by other persons who are not invitees of the Guest and whose presence would violate the Maximum Occupancy under this Agreement.
7. RISK OF LOSS, INDEMNIFICATION AND RELEASE
Guest agrees that all personal property, furnishings, personal effects and other items brought into the Property by Guest, or their invitees, shall be at the sole risk of Guest with regard to any theft, damage, destruction or other loss and Rental Agent or Owner shall not be responsible or liable for any reason whatsoever. Guest agrees to use the Property, and any amenities entirely at the Guest’s own initiative, risk and responsibility. Guest hereby agrees and hereby waives, releases, and indemnifies from any claims against Utopian, Owner, and their respective agents, owners, heirs, successors, employees or representatives from and against any costs, damages, liabilities, claims, legal fees and other actions for any damages, costs, attorney’s fees incurred by Guest, or Guest’s invitees, agents, representatives, heirs or successors, due to any claims relating to destruction of property or injury to persons or loss of life sustained by Guest, or Guest’s invitees, agents, representatives, heirs or successors, in or about the Property, including any common facilities, activities or amenities, unless such injury or damage was caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Utopian or Owner.
8. ENTRY AND INSPECTION
Rental Agent reserves the right to enter the Property at reasonable times and with reasonable advance notice for the purposes of inspecting the Property or showing the Property to prospective purchasers, renters or other authorized persons. If Rental Agent has a reasonable belief that there is imminent danger to any person or property, or a violation of the uses of the Property, such as smoking, illegal drugs, the presence of unauthorized pets, or a violation of local, state or federal law, Rental Agent may enter the Property without advance notice. In addition, if the rental property is listed for sale, with reasonable 24-hour notice, the Guest shall allow the Owner to conduct a supervised real estate showing.
9. UNAVAILABILITY OF PROPERTY
In the event the Property is not available for use during the Rental Term due to reasons, events or circumstances beyond the control of Rental Agent, Rental Agent will apply due diligence and good faith efforts to locate a replacement property that equals or exceeds the Property with respect to occupancy capacity, location and value that meets the reasonable satisfaction of the Guest. If such replacement property cannot be found and made available, Rental Agent shall immediately return all payments made by the Guest, whereupon this Agreement shall be terminated and Guest and Rental Agent shall have no further obligations or liabilities in any manner pertaining to this Agreement.
