Residents are only permitted one or two cats, or one or two small birds, and fish. Only small birds are allowed (parakeets, lovebirds, cockatiels). No large parrots!

The Town of North Redington Beach requires that your pet be on a leash and that you pick-up after your pet when you are walking it. Please remember that residents cannot acquire or replace a pet without prior written consent from the office.
Only persons named in the lease agreement, or designated as legal owners in the apartment owners' file, will be given access to that particular apartment.

Movers must release the elevator for emergency use.
Moving and delivery trucks are not allowed to park in the front of either building. Moving and delivery trucks may park ONLY at the rear of either building to load and unload. Should special circumstances arise, special permission from the office is necessary for moves in or out of the side entrances.
Please contact the office to reserve your moving day. It is to everyone's advantage to approve only one move-in or move-out per building per day.

MUSIC, NOISE AND NORMAL DAILY ACTIVITY Extreme care should be taken at all hours about making noise. The apartments at Gull Harbor are reasonably soundproof, but it is still necessary to think of your neighbors. This applies particularly to the use of musical instruments, radios and televisions that may tend to disturb other residents.
Normal daily activities should take place between the hours of 8:30a.m. and 10:00p.m. (Samples of normal activities to restrict to these hours are running the vacuum cleaner, washer/dryer, or dishwasher, exercising, hanging pictures, etc.) Vocal and/or musical instrument practice is limited to two hours between 10:00a.m. and 8:00p.m.
If you are entertaining, playing a musical instrument, playing the stereo or watching television between the hours of 8:00p.m. and 10:00a.m., it is recommended that you close your windows and doors. These are extra precautions you can take in order not to disturb your neighbors.
Please remember when entertaining in the evenings on your porch or private balcony that voices seem louder and carry further at night. Please keep your voices low, or go inside after 10:00p.m.
PARKING Residents are assigned numbered parking spaces. Please use only your assigned space. If you return and find a vehicle in your parking space you may call the Office Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm or Liz after hours to have the vehicle towed or to have a note placed on the vehicle asking them to utilize Guest Parking in the future.
All Gull Harbor residents must have a parking sticker placed in the lower left-hand corner of the rear window of their automobile. Please come to the office to obtain your sticker as soon as possible. If your rear windshield is darkly tinted, please place the sticker on a non-tinted window where it will be easily visible.

Service vehicles may not park overnight.
Any automobile that does not have current tags will be considered abandoned and will be removed from the Gull Harbor parking lot at the owner's expense.
Improperly parked vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense without warning. A Gull Harbor sticker does not grant residents immunity from being towed if they are improperly parked.

Temporary permits are available from the Town of North Redington Beach for the temporary parking of recreational vehicles along Gulf Blvd.
Please drive carefully through our parking areas and come to a complete stop at all traffic crossings.
NOTE: At this time, all available parking spaces have been assigned to apartment units.

This request must be made in writing.

It is the responsibility of our residents to observe and report rule violations.
Rule violations may be reported to the office on weekdays (9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.) and in the evenings or on weekends by calling Liz (see the monthly newsletter for the phone number). If Liz is not available at the time of your call, please leave your name, day, time and purpose of your call on the answering machine.
