Dogs may be allowed but the renter must first contact us for a discussion. We understand that many people do not want to leave their dogs behind when they go on vacation. We are open to having dogs stay at Cactus Moon Retreat so long as their owners are sensitive to and understand some basic issues, and pay a small fee.
INSIDE THE HOUSE
Unlike a hotel with many “units” we have only one "unit" we can rent at any one time. If that unit is damaged or soiled we are unable to rent the unit until repairs or cleaning can be completed. And often we have back-to-back guests – one group checking out by 11 am and another group checking in after 3 pm the same day – thus no time in which to complete anything other than standard cleaning.
• Using special sheets we provide, dog owners should always cover any place where their dog may elect to lie down (other than the bare concrete floors). We are not equipped to shampoo furniture or rugs or dry clean bedding when fast turnarounds are so common.
OUTSIDE THE HOUSE
• Dogs should at all times be kept on leash. There are coyotes in the area and if your dog is less that 30 pounds they might become dinner.• Under no circumstances can dogs be in the pool. • Dog owners should immediately pick up after their dogs and deposit the waste in a plastic bag. • Dog owners should understand that we will not hesitate to deduct as needed from their deposit for failure to do any of the above and/or to cover any excessive cleaning or repairs necessitated by the presence of their pets.
