  20. For security reasons, all guests on the property must be registered guests of Cottages by the Sea.
  21. Parking is free to our registered guests, but we do ask that only registered guests use our parking spaces.  Use of our beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, patios, kayaks, grills and bikes is limited to our in-house guests only.
  22. We consider our property line to begin at our structures, so, although the beach is public, from our beachfront patios, back, is considered private property.
