House Rules and Important Reminders

To make sure that family and frineds will have a pleasant stay and to prevent any misunderstanding, please read the House Rules and Important Reminders below pertaining to your stay. When you choose to stay at the property, you are also acknowledging that you have read, understood fully, and accept all our house rules and important reminders, and that you will fully adhere to them during your visit.  If you violate any of these house rules, this will result in the cancellation of your stay.

House Rules and Important Reminders

House Usage. The property is a residential vacation house built as a beach getaway for family and friends  only. Loud gatherings, parties or functions of over 20 people, commercial activities/events, and unruly & noisy guests are strictly not allowed inside the subdivision.

Check-in & Check-out. Check-in time is no earlier than 2:30PM and check-out time is no later than 12:00PM, unless otherwise pre-arranged. This is strictly enforced to allow for proper cleaning and preparation for incoming guests. Requests for early check-in or late check-out are subject to availability and must be explicitly  approved by our Manila office. Tali Beach security only allows guests entry to the subdivision at the pre-arranged time.

Safety. Please be aware that there is no lifeguard in the beach and swimming pool. Always swim with a buddy; do not allow anyone to swim alone. Do not swim under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Children and elderly persons should always be closely supervised. We urge all our guests, especially young children, to bring and use personal flotation devices (such as life vests) when swimming. Diving or jumping in the pool is strictly prohibited.

Valuables. Please do not leave your valuables such as cash, electronics, and jewelries unattended. The owners/management and caretakers will not be liable for any loss and will not be responsible for articles left behind.

Noise Control Policy. Enjoy the sounds of nature and let our neighbors do the same. Guests are required to keep noise & voices down and to completely shut off all sound systems (including karaoke/videoke machines) between the hours of 9:00PM to 8:00AM and during Tali Beach siesta hours of 1:00PM to 3:00PM. Our house is inside a very private subdivision which pride itself with its serenity and peacefulness. The guards are very strict with the implementation of the noise control regulations and their imposition of applicable fines & penalties, including being removed from the subdivision. There will be no refunds for early departures.

Things to Bring. Guests are responsible for their food & drinks, toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothbrush, etc.), and bath/beach towels. The kitchen is equipped with a two-burner stove, fridge, microwave, utensils which may be used for food preparation & simple cooking. There is an outdoor charcoal grill available for use.

Smoking is allowed in open spaces but is not permitted indoors. A minimum of PhP2,500 fine will be collected if cigarette smoking is detected inside the house.

Pets are welcomed but are not allowed on [a] the 2nd floor of the main house, [b] inside all bedrooms except for Rooms A and B (both located on the 1st floor of the main house), and [c] in the swimming pool. They must be on leash when outside the house. Guests are requested to clean up after their pets.

Caring for Nature. Avoid leaving anything on the beach shore as litter kills wildlife. We hope all our guests can try to adhere to the adage: “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time.”

Going Green. We invite all our guests to help conserve natural resources and care for the environment by turning off air conditioners, lights, and other appliances and making sure faucets are tightly closed when not in use or when you leave your room.

Swimming Pool & Sand. It is imperative that guests shower before entering the swimming pool. When coming in from the beach, please rinse the sand/dirt off your feet, hands, body, clothing, toys, etc. before entering the pool. Sand can clog and damage the pool’s pump filter. The pool pump will be turned off at 9:00PM, when sand is detected in the pool, and during cleaning & maintenance. The swimming pool will still be usable the whole day & night except when under maintenance.

Bonfires, Buses, Jeepneys, etc. Bonfires are not allowed anywhere in Tali Beach. The use of fireworks, firearms, illegal drugs, and other controlled substances are also prohibited. Buses, vehicles with over 22-passenger seating capacity, and jeepneys are strictly not allowed inside the subdivision.

Gate Pass. Complete names of all our guests and vehicle plate numbers must be submitted at least 7 days prior to check-in for the issuance of a gate pass. Only registered guests with a printed copy of their gate pass will be allowed by Tali security inside the subdivision. The gate pass shall be sent once full payment is settled. We also require a picture or scanned image of a valid government identification (ID) card of one guest.

Cancellations, Refunds, & Rescheduling. Cancellations are not possible for reasons including undesirable weather, for no-shows, or for early departures. Rescheduling a confirmed reservation may be possible only in the event of a storm signal number 2 or above officially declared in Nasugbu, Batangas area during the booked date/s.

Power Outages & Generator. During power outages and while power is supplied by the generator, our guests may use the following: [a] lights, [b] electric fans, [c] one air conditioner only, [d] laptops and mobile phone chargers. Please do not use more than one air conditioner and do not use other high wattage appliances like the refrigerator, microwave, and bathroom water heater. Overloading the generator will damage the generator and electrical appliances. Our generator cannot run continuously over a long period of time; it must be shut off after 4 hours of use and be allowed to rest for 1 hour before starting it back up.

Important Reminders. [a] Swimming and other activities are entirely at our guests’ own risk. The owners/management of the house shall not be held responsible for any accidents, injuries, or illness that may occur while on their premises. [b] Unforeseen events can sometimes occur. The owners of the house shall not be liable for delays to provide rooms/amenities, service interruptions with utilities, and cancelled reservations/stays due to events and circumstances beyond their control. [c] We have endeavored to accurately describe and provide actual photos of the property and the house. We will not be held liable should the house/property not match your expectations.
