Rental Policy


We hope you enjoy our lakeside town home as much as we do!  When you arrive, relax and make yourself at home at Point Venture Retreat. It is a privilege to share this with you, our friends, and we would love to continue our rental program for years to come.  We realize that it's not a "plush" and "fancy" resort hotel, but it's very special to us.  We ask that you would respect and treat Point Venture Retreat as if it were yours. 


With that in mind, each guest is required to place a refundable deposit  of $300 for purposes of reservation, damage, and clean-up. The damage deposit must be received within seven (7) days of booking the reservation and automatically converts to a security/damage deposit upon arrival. The deposit is NOT applied toward rent; however, it is fully refundable within (14) days of departure, provided the following provisions are met.

  • No damage is done to unit or its contents, beyond normal wear and tear.
  • No charges are incurred due to contraband, pets, or collection of rents or services tendered during the stay. 
  • All debris, rubbish, and discards are placed in the waste container outside, and soiled dishes are placed in the dishwasher and cleaned. One load of laundry is started. 
  • All keys are left where they are found and unit is left locked (Replacement key charges will be assessed at $15 per door key and $40 per magnetic pool/amenity pass). 
  • All charges accrued during the stay are paid prior to departure. 
  • No linens are lost or damaged.
  • No evidence of pets and/or pet damage to Point Venture Retreat is found ($100 fee if found, plus damages).
  • No early check-in or late check-outs (unless mutually agreed upon in writing). 
  • The renter is not evicted by the owner (or representative of the owner), the local law enforcement, or the security company employed by Point Venture Townhome Association.

Please be kind, and treat the house as it were your own. Any damages caused to any part of the house by guests misuse will be the responsibility of the guest(s) and deducted from your deposit or charged to your credit card. If cleaning beyond the "normal" is required, a $50 fee will be deducted from your security deposit
