RENT BRANSON VACATION RENTAL AGREEMENT
We look forward to having you stay and enjoy one of our amazing vacation rentals! We have prepared
a wonderful place for you, your family, and friends. Please enjoy our home and keep in mind your safety and others.
Please read this Vacation Rental Agreement carefully before you begin your vacation. Any monies received by Rent Branson (herein referred to as BR) for occupancy of Vacation Property indicated the acceptance of the terms of our Vacation Rental Agreement in full. All policies are strictly enforced. It is the responsibility of all guests and members of their party to be familiar with all policies pertaining to rental. Upon making your reservation online you have already accepted this agreement. We also require this agreement to be accepted again with this form.
This agreement is made between you referred to as Guest throughout this agreement and Rent Branson/Alpha Omega Management LLC, called Agent.
RENTER REQUIREMENTS: For legal and accounting purposes, the person placing the reservation must be the same as the credit/debit card holder. This person is the Guest. All other persons involved with the rental are the Guest’s invitees, and all discussion regarding reservation, cancelation, and damage policies will be discussed with the Guest, not the Guest’s invitees. The Guest understands that Streamline Getaways rents to responsible adults over the age of 25 ONLY.
Rates are quoted on a per night, per week or per month basis as noted. Most rates quoted are for a specified number of people (4 for 2 bedrooms, 6 for 3 bedrooms). Additional guests are subject to a per person, per day charge. Charges vary and are subject to change without notice.
ADDITIONAL CHARGES (NOT included in rate):
Rates do NOT include daily maid service (unless noted), gratuities, out-of-country (except Canada) long- distance phone charges, car rental, food, liquor, laundry, personal items, excessive cleaning upon departure (i.e., upholstery or rug shampooing, etc.). For Longer Term Rentals we can make available weekly housekeeping. Please reach out to us for the rate. For some properties in this long term stay a mid-stay cleaning will be required. We will let you know if your property applies.
RESERVATIONS AND PAYMENTS:
Payment of the applicable 30% Rental Deposit amount together with a completed Guest Reservation Application must be received and approved by Amazing Branson Rentals before a confirmation will be
issued. You may be required to complete a guest verification form. This is to protect you as well as the owner from any possible fraud. Final payment, consisting of the remaining balance, must be received by the agent 30 days prior your arrival and for some properties of 120 days. Failure to make final payments on a timely basis will leave the Guest’s reservation subject to automatic cancellation without refund of any monies previously received. The credit card must have an expiration date that exceeds the departure date. If the card on file has already been charged, the Agent will not refund and process a different form of payment. If the Guest has more than one card on file, the Agent’s system will charge the default payment unless called ahead of time to change
it. If the Guest’s card has expired and there is another form of payment on file, the Agent’s system will automatically default to that form of payment. The Agent will not refund and charge another form of payment. An electronic check payment can be arranged if the Guest is not arriving in under thirty (30) days. A $35 service charge will be incurred for any returned e-checks. Additionally, a $500-750 security deposit may be required.
A non-refundable cleaning fee is required with all reservations. This fee is for the Agent’s housekeepers who dust, vacuum, sanitize, clean linens and towels, maintain the hot tub and remove refuse from the property. The Guest is required to follow all checkout procedures detailed in this agreement and leave the property in the same general and good habitable condition it was in when the Guest arrived. If the property is left in an unsatisfactory condition, including but not limited to, trash not removed, dirty dishes, furniture moved, etc., there will be an additional cleaning fee charged to the Guest’s card on file at a rate of $65 per hour, with a one-hour minimum. This also applies to the property exterior, grounds, grills, hot tubs, and pool (if so equipped). Housekeeping is not provided during the stay unless previously arranged. Glitter and confetti are not allowed on any property, inside or outside.
CONDITION OF RENTAL:
The property shall be in the same condition upon departure as at check-in. Normal wear and tear excepted. Failure to comply with pre-departure cleaning requirements resulting in excessive cleaning will be charged to your credit card at $65/hour, with a one-hour minimum
The Agent has the right to reject all requests pertaining to the changing of bookings. This includes moves or change dates. If a change is granted, an additional administrative fee of $100 to $250 will be charged. If there is an increased cost associated with the updated booking, then those costs will also be charged. Acceptance of any change is subject to approval by the Agent.
Each property has a maximum number of guests that are allowed, which is strictly enforced. If the Guest exceeds this occupancy limit for any reason, Guest is considered in violation of this agreement and will be charged a minimum fine of $100 per person per night. Please inform the Agent of any change in the number of guests before arrival to avoid these charges and ensure the property is appropriately prepared for the stay. No exceptions or refunds are given for changes in the number of guests after arrival. In addition, occupancy limits for day usage for visitors are limited to two (2) times the premises occupancy limit. A guest/reservation holder who signs this lease must be at least 25 years of age and be present during the entire term of the lease. Any Guest found to be in breach of this contract will be subject to expedited eviction procedures.
CHANGES TO THE NUMBER OF GUESTS:

Unauthorized people at the property at any time will result in a double charge for each additional guest or a maximum occupancy charge (whichever is more), loss of any security deposit, and responsibility for all damage, disturbance, and cleaning charges.
CONDUCT OF GUESTS:
The rental property is not intended for parties, nor gatherings at any time of anyone except those who have paid to occupy the property. Exceptions are made on an individual basis – please contact the Agent for prior

In addition, all credit card and processing fees will be retained by the Agent. To protect against cancellations caused by certain unforeseen events, such as illness, death, natural disasters, etc., the Agent strongly recommend the Guest purchase travel insurance and the VIP Protection Plan to assure refund of deposits paid and reimbursement of other vacation payments. Such insurance is available through travel agents, auto clubs such as AAA, or the Agent. Cancellations due to a cancellation or change of a tee time, conference, or other events are subject to this same policy.
VACATION RENTAL INSURANCE:
Travel Protection Insurance is available through the Agent and covers cancellation or interruption of the Guest’s stay, travel delay, baggage delay, rental car damage, and emergency/medical/dental expenses. Please read your documentation carefully as certain limitations, restrictions, and exclusions apply. The plan is optional, but we strongly recommend it. In case of unforeseen events, this insurance helps protect the Guest’s vacation
investment. If the Guest chooses not to purchase this coverage, or the Rent Branson VIP Cancellation Protection Plan provided by the Agent, no refunds will be given after the final balance has been paid. The insurance premium, 7.45% of the total, is non-refundable and non-transferable.
RENT BRANSON VIP CANCELLATION PROTECTION PLAN:
The Agent may provide the option to purchase the VIP Cancellation Protection Plan at the time of booking. The
Agent’s VIP Cancellation Protection Plan is not a replacement for the third-party Travel Protection Insurance but is an additional option for the Guest to have peace of mind when planning. It is available for 5-bedroom homes or smaller and stays no longer than ten (10) days. The VIP Cancellation Protection Plan can be purchased for 13% of the total at the time of making your reservation. It must be added within twenty-four (24)
hours of making the reservation.
If the Guest purchases the VIP Cancellation Protection Plan, guest can cancel for any reason up to seventy-two (72) hours prior to check in and receive a 100% refund, excluding the credit card fee, VIP Cancellation Protection Plan cost & administrative fee. The admin fee, VIP Cancellation Protection Plan cost and credit card
fees are non-refundable.
If the Guest purchases the Travel Protection Insurance and the VIP Cancellation Protection Plan and need to cancel, he or she should submit the Travel Protection Insurance claim first and then contact the Agent regarding
the VIP Cancellation Protection Plan. The Guest cannot be double paid out for a cancellation. Claims must be
filed within fourteen (14) days of cancellation.
An additional refundable security deposit may be required at the Agent’s discretion for the Guest’s reservation. It is the obligation of the Guest to surrender the rental property in good, clean condition at the time specified. If a security deposit is taken it will be returned within thirty (30 days) of the departure date, provided there is no breakage or damage to the premises and/or contents, there are no outstanding long-distance phone or pay-per- view charges, no additional cleaning costs, and all other rules of this agreement are adhered to. If your property allows for a pet, a refundable pet deposit may be required. Please note pet cleaning and daily pet fees are in addition to this and are not refundable.
DAMAGE PROTECTION PLAN:
The Agent’s Damage Protection Plan covers unintentional damages to the rental unit interior that occur during the Guest stay, provided they are disclosed to the Agent prior to checkout. The policy will pay a maximum benefit of $1500. Any damages that exceed $1500 will be charged to the credit card on file.
EMERGENCY and/or MAINTENANCE:
In the event of a problem getting in the rental or if there are problems with the condition or functionality of the rental, please immediately contact the Agent at 417-779-5880. If it is not an emergency, please call during normal business hours between 8 AM and 8 PM.
DAMAGE and/or ACCIDENTS:
The Guest agrees to notify the Agent as to any damage or accidents that occur to the premises, to both real property and personal property during the rental period. Damages must be reported prior to checkout for the Agent to repair and/or replace said damages. Otherwise, all damage costs will be the responsibility of the Guest.
If the Guest’s reservation for the rental property is not available, the Agent reserves the right to relocate the
Guest to a different rental property within the Agent’s rental program or that of another company. Every effort
will be made to ensure that the replacement property is reasonably comparable to the original rental property.
CANCELLATIONS DUE TO POWER OUTAGES AND WEATER:
The Agent does not issue refunds due to acts of nature such as weather, road conditions, snow conditions, power outages, or forest fires, but the optional travel insurance plan does provide some protection against these instances. If the property is uninhabitable, there is no other comparable property the Agent can move the reservation to, and the Guest did not purchase insurance, reservations can be rescheduled for future dates within one year of the reservation date (dates subject to approval by the Agent and the Guest is responsible for any additional costs).
CASTASTROPHICK EVENTS AND EMERGENCY EVACUATIONS:
If a catastrophe (hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood, etc.) or any situation beyond the Agent’s control impairs the vacation rental, the Agent is not responsible for finding alternate lodging for the Guest or for the Guest’s financial losses related to transportation or alternate lodging. There will be no refunds or credits for emergency evacuations or weather conditions. The Agent recommends the Rent Branson VIP Cancellation Protection Plan and/or travel protection insurance to secure the Guest’s vacation investment and eliminate financial risk. There will be no refunds of any kind for evacuations and/or weather conditions.
Directions, key codes, and other information will be provided upon receipt of the final payment. Door codes will not be activated if this agreement is not accepted, and full payment is not received.

The minimum charge for unapproved late checkout is $50. If the rental has not been vacated by 4 pm, a fee equal to the rental rate of two and a half (2 1⁄2) days may be assessed.
If any guest has not departed the property on their end date of their reservation they will be considered as trespassers and law enforcement will be contacted to have anyone removed.
Early Arrival and Late Departure
The only way to guarantee an early arrival or late departure is to book an additional night on the front end or backend of the stay. The Agent often offers discounted rates for adding additional nights and the Guest can inquire about adding additional nights with the Agent. If additional nights are not purchased, the Guest will need to wait until early afternoon on the day of arrival or the morning of departure to request early arrival or late departure. Additional fees may apply.
The Agent shall not be held responsible for changes made by owners, printing errors, or properties leaving the
Agent’s rental program. The Agent does not move people, give refunds due to construction noise, or guarantee
views. Recompense will not be issued due to malfunctioning equipment, housekeeping issues, or another
Guest’s dissatisfaction. All grievances must be expressed to the Agent in writing on the day of check-in,
otherwise, refunds will not be considered. The Guest agrees to indemnify the property owner, the Agent, and its
employees in the event of loss or damage caused by the Guest. This includes any liabilities or any loss or
damage whatsoever arising from, related to, or in connection with the rental of the premises including but not

Safety and Security Risks
Always lock doors and windows when not at home. The Guest assumes responsibility for the home and its contents, as well as all personal property. Instead of using a key, the Agent uses a keypad to lock and unlock the door. The Guest will be given a code in the Arrival Instructions email to use to access the home. This code is changed for every guest for security. For most properties, the Agent also has a key in a lock box in the event it is needed. The Guest is responsible for lost key replacement costs.

If there is any tobacco, other smoke odor, or smoking remnants within the rental after the Guest’s departure, there will be an air quality fine of up to $1500 but no less than $250. This will be charged to the method of payment on file. If deemed necessary, the Agent will bring in an outside source for smoke removal and may charge the Guest’s method of payment for additional costs that are incurred to remove the smell of smoke or smoke damage. Oil lamps, candles, and incense are not permitted due to the long-lasting odor, fire risk, and liability. Smoking is only allowed outside if the remnants are properly disposed of. Do not throw cigarette butts on the ground (including the fire ring) or bring them into the rental. If this policy is violated, there will be an additional charge for excessive cleaning.
Many of the Agent’s properties have never had animals. ADA-certified service animals are accepted by law;. Lying about service animals is a felony and will be treated as such. A service animal is one who has been trained to do a specific task and is tasked to be with their owner twenty-four (24) hours per day, not left at the unit. No animal can be left in the unit without being crated. If found in violation, the Guest will be asked to vacate the premises immediately. Please notify the Agent directly of any special conditions. The Guest must also inform the Agent in writing that a service animal will be staying in the rental upon booking. Non-pet- friendly homes are generally for owners and/or guests that have allergies or reactions to animals.
Swimming Pool Use and Rules (for properties that have them)
Use of the swimming pool is strictly at the Guest’s own risk and liability. The pools are regularly sanitized, and chemicals are replenished in all indoor pools prior to every arrival. If additional maintenance is required during the Guest’s stay, or the next guests are unable to use the indoor pool due to conditions resulting from the Guest’s failure to observe the rules laid out in this agreement, there will be a minimum $45 charge (and cost of
supplies if necessary) for each hour of required maintenance. If the Agent must drain the tub or indoor pool it
will be 1)
a $200-500 charge.
All children and teenagers, regardless of swimming ability, are to be constantly supervised by an adult that can swim and is able to jump into the pool to assist a child in danger of drowning.
Keep a phone nearby to call 911 in the event of any swimming pool accident. All adults must know the house address.
Swimming alone is not permitted, regardless of swimming ability or age.
Don’t leave any toys in the pool when the pool is not in use. Toys are an invitation for children to explore an unattended pool.
No running or jumping around the pool area is permitted.
No horseplay is permitted.
Be familiar with pool rescue protocols.
Be familiar with emergency CPR.
No glass items are allowed in or near the pool.

alcohol must not enter the pool.
11) Notify the Agent of any potentially dangerous pool or backyard conditions that may be present.
12) For sanitary purposes, the Agent respectfully requests that all children that are not fully potty-trained
wear swim diapers.
Hot Tub (for properties that have them)
The hot tub pump will kick on periodically to circulate, filter, and heat the water. It will activate automatically. The Guest does not need to do anything. This continues to occur while the hot tub cover is on. The water level will be filled to the proper amount upon the Guest’s arrival. Please take care not to splash too much water out or add more water. Altering the amount of water in the hot tub can disturb the chemical balance. Allowing the jets to be exposed to air will cause the tub to airlock, resulting in the need for a service call, and an additional charge. Please carefully remove the hot tub cover when ready to enjoy it and remember to replace the cover after each use. The cover must remain on the hot tub when not in use to maintain its temperature. Absolutely no suds, oils, or food is allowed in the hot tub. Feet should be rinsed before entering the hot tub to ensure sand and dirt are removed. This is very important as all these things affect the filtering system. Draining and cleaning out the tub and filter system is very time-consuming and costly. After refilling the tub, it can take twenty-four (24) to thirty-six (36) hours to reheat. If the hot tub must be drained and cleaned after the stay, the Agent will charge the Guest an additional fee to be determined at the time of service.
Hot Tub Use and Rules
Use of the hot tub is strictly at the Guest’s own risk and liability. The hot tubs are regularly sanitized, and chemicals are replenished in all hot tubs prior to every arrival. If additional maintenance is required during the Guest’s stay, or the next guests are unable to use the tub or due to conditions resulting from the Guest’s failure to observe the rules laid out in this agreement, there will be a minimum $45 charge (and cost of supplies if necessary) for each hour of required maintenance. If the Agent must drain the tub or indoor pool, it will be a minimum $200-500 charge. Instructions for the tub controls are posted in the information book in the rental property.
1) Always shower or bathe before and after using the hot tub. Body oil, tanning oil, self-tanning products, makeup, hair products, etc. clog filters.
2) An adult must always accompany children.
3) Observe the safety precautions posted at the tub and have all guests do likewise.
4) Do not sit, stand, or lie on the tub cover; a minimum charge of $300 will be made if the cover is broken. 5) Unhook the safety strap before removing the cover.
6) Replace the cover when not in the tub and secure the safety strap to conserve heat, for safety, and to keep debris out of the water.
7) If the temperature has been adjusted during use, make sure to return the temp to the original setting when done. Failure to reset may cause the hot tub to overheat & stop working, possibly resulting in additional charges.
8) Use non-breakable drink containers in the tub area.
9) Do not add anything to the hot tub water such as bubbles & oils, even if the product says it is compatible. 10) If the water level is low (below the filter intake) add more water or call the Agent, as low water can destroy the pump, resulting in additional charges.
Hot tubs may be drained and refilled before the Guest’s arrival because of previous Guest misuse. If this occurs the hot tub may not be warm until later the evening of arrival or the following morning. Additionally, due to the high mineral content in the mountain water at some of the Agent’s rentals, the hot tub may initially appear cloudy until the minerals settle. If the conditions persist, please call the Agent.

I (the Guest) also agree an adult must be present to supervise any children or teenagers in the swimming pool area. I (the Guest) agree to never leave a child or teenager unattended on the property. Swimming Pools can be extremely dangerous for unsupervised children and teenagers, as well as adults swimming alone.

Limitation of Liability

The Agent reserves the right to cancel or rescind any rental agreement if it is found that the Guest is conducting unlawful activities, disturbing others by playing loud music, percussion, audio, or instruments, causing any loud or offensive noises, has made any misrepresentations about the nature of the visit, size of the group, use of the property, or breach this rental agreement in any way.
Indemnification and Hold Harmless
