All guests MUST follow all HOUSE RULES below upon booking:
→ By Jersey City regulation, guests must be at least 21-years old in order to book short-term rental, no exception will be made. The account holder must be present during the staying, and the profile picture must be a clear photo showing the face. I will cancel the reservation if the profile picture does not show the face of the account holder.
→ We prefer at least one guest be at least 25 years old. If you cannot meet this requirement, message us and tell us about your stay before you book.
→ Sorry, no pets allowed under any circumstance due to owner's asthma and severe allergies. We will cancel your reservation immediately if you bring a pet. Otherwise, I will charge $150 deep cleaning fee.
→ You must book your reservation with the total number of guests expected. There are no additional guests allowed beyond the number you book for. There is a small extra guest fee for reservations over 6 people. If there are more guests check-in than are on the reservation which will be subject to Airbnb's cancellation policy.
→ Strict quiet hours are between 10pm and 8am. While rule #1 is to have a good time, please, no parties. The Lee Mansion is definitely not a party house. So, if you feel like you need to bring your beer pong table, this is not the rental for you. No speaker bigger than an Alexa is allowed in this house, it is not a party or a frat house so do not bring unauthorized people here and definitely do not try to sneak-in 20 people in here to host a drinking party. Any group is found breaking this rule will be charge $500 violation fee on top of $40 per unauthorized person.
→ I host you and people on the reservation as my guests, but I don’t host guests’ guest/visitors. So try not to break that rule. If someone close by and want to stop by to say “hello”, please ask me for permission first and you must clearly let me know when this person coming and how long he/she is staying for, any visitor staying more than 4 hours will be charged a extra guest fee of $25
→ NO SMOKING, NO VAPING, and NO HOOKAH are allowed INSIDE the house. There are hidden silent smart smoke detector installed throughout the house which will send signals to my phone if smoke occur, so pulling down the smoke detector will not help covering up if you smoke inside the house. And do not think opening the window will help, no it doesn’t. Cleaner will charge $500 to deep clean everything to get rid of the smoke smell and this cost will be charge back on your security deposit. Make sure you are at least 10 feet away from the front entrance and the backdoor in the backyard when you smoke outside to avoid the smoke smell comes back inside the house.
→ Do not use the white towels to clean your make-up, it stays on and never able to use again, I will charge $5 for each towel if found make-up or any kind of colorant on it.
→ Guest safety is our top priority. If you have children, you are fully responsible for their safety at all times. This house is not set up for child proof house
→ Check-in is 4 pm and you can come anytime after that. Check-out at 11 am is strictly enforced to allow a reasonable window for cleaning between guests. If cleaners must wait past checkout, you will be charged $15 for every 15 minutes.
→ We have 2 trash bins by the front courtyard, blue is RECYCLE and dark grey is WASTE for your convenience. You must bring all your trash to these trash bins before you checkout. Please keep the lids securely closed to prevent animals from getting inside. If these trash bins are full, you must put them in the outdoor trash bags (clear for recycle and black for waste, they are in the kitchen storage closet. Please do not mixed the trash, you will be charge $100 for handling fee. It is very important that this is done right from the beginning to avoid ticket from the city. There will be instruction at the trash area to show you what are recyclable.
→ Wash, dry, and put away dishes. Never throw food, grease, or trash down the sink and dish washer. The cleanliness of kitchen essentials depends on the guests before you - please wash them the best you can. Cleaners will charge $15 if dishes are left behind. → We understand that accidents happen. Let us know if anything breaks or is damaged during your stay so we can replace or repair them as soon as possible, and it does not become a surprise for our next guests!
