Please do so promptly after your arrival. During the summer the parking attendants patrol the area continually and cars without visible parking permits are cited. Parking fines are around $58.00. The loading zone is available for loading and unloading, but violations of the time limit are also subject to fine over which we have no control.  



  • Dogs, cats, and other animals are not permitted on the premises, no exceptions.  

  • Smoking is also not permitted in the rental unit or on the property.

  • The Surfside property, and your rental unit, are for registered guests only.


Checkout Time – The day you are checking out you must be vacated by 11:00 AM so that it can be cleaned for the next guest. Late check-out may result in an additional nights fee being charged to your credit card.


An additional cleaning/damage fee may be charged to your credit card if you smoke on the property, have not cleaned as per Surfside posted policies, if your unit is left unusually dirty, with trash and recycling left in the unit, or if there is damage to the room or furnishings.
