Licensee assumes the entire risk of injuries arising from use of the Property. Licensee will ensure that the Property has a secure shower or bath tub mat, and that the Licensee takes reasonable measures to prevent slips in the bathroom, on staircases, steps, on balconies, and throughout the Property. Licensee agrees to take a higher degree of care in the use of the Property because of the age of the structures on the Property.

Parents may not book Properties for their children. The Licensee must be present at the Property for the time of the reservation, and take full responsibility for the Property.

19. Tenancy: The Licensee acknowledges that this is NOT a tenancy for the Property. The Property is not rented for more than 30 days, and is taxed and treated as a transient occupancy, akin to hotel accommodations. Property laws do not apply to the license granted herein, and the Licensee may be removed as a trespasser immediately upon termination of this license. The Property is rented on regular short term periods, and for a significantly higher rate than a non-vacation rental. Often a licensee is scheduled to begin a vacation in the Property on the same day as the check-out day of another prior licensee. If Licensee stays even one additional day, Mission Sands would face significant logistical problems with the next licensee, including possible liability. As such, Licensee agrees to vacate immediately on the check-out day, at 10:00 a.m. Failure to do so will entitle Mission Sands, in addition to all other remedies available to it, to: have Licensee ejected by law enforcement as trespasser; and to physically remove Licensee and all of Licensee's possessions from the Property, for which Licensee hereby grants permission and consent; and obtain damages and injunctive relief against Licensee.

However, Mission Sands is not liable for errors, omissions, mistakes, price changes and any changes by the Owner in furnishings, equipment, bed arrangements and other accommodations.
22. Construction: Mission Sands may not be held responsible for failure to disclose information regarding construction outside the property boundaries.
23. Relationship with Owners of Subject Property: It is hereby disclosed that Mission Sands has a contractual relationship with the Owners as the Owners, agent.

All rentals are subject to confirmation by Owner. Licensee agrees that Mission Sands will not be liable for damages caused by decision of the Owner.
