Big Bear Code of Conduct – $250 – $500 and $1000 fines and evictions
Big Bear is very strict with regards to outside noise after 10pm. You do face noise complaint fines from the city if you are outside on a deck (talking, bbq, playing music, etc) after 10pm. This is a Big Bear city ordinance. If Destination Big Bear has to visit the home during your stay because the city ordinance department has demanded we do. Your booking will be charged a $250.00 minimally, $500 for a second visit and $1000 for eviction. Amplified music heard at the property line at anytime even during the day will result in a fine.
Destination Big Bear can not prevent the city from issuing the fines. The city ordinance officers who are hired to patrol vacation rental homes respond to “CODE CALLS” by neighbors. Please be respectful to the neighborhoods and do be nice to the code officers, they have the ability to issue fines and if you are over occupancy they will evict you. We can not issue any refunds if you are evicted.
Each property has a maximum number of guests and cars that are allowed. This is set by the city/county and is not negotiable; renters found to be in violation of these clearly posted allowances will be subject to immediate eviction and forfeiture of all rental fees, charges and deposits by the city. The number of cars per city/county ordinance is cars in the driveway. Street parking is not available per the city/county overnight. Only park in designated parking spots, not in the yards.
It is against city ordinance to use a hot tub between 10:00 pm and 7:00 am even if you are quiet and will result in a fine.
Do not risk it the city is patrolling and auditing vacation rentals now.
