Puamana House Rules
PUAMANA COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION OFFICIAL RULES
The Puamana Community Association (PCA) has formulated these rules ".so as to provide the enjoyment of the Common Properties by every Member in a manner consistent with the preservation of quiet enjoyment of the Lot and Living Unit by every Owner." These words are from the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions, Article IV, Section 3(f), dated May 1968.
The basic rules for any dwelling can be simply stated as common sense practice in the consideration of others in order to create a friendly, pleasant atmosphere. The PCA appeals to all owners and their guests to demonstrate reasonable tolerance because of the close proximity in which we live.
The PCA rules state the responsibilities of everyone on the premises. The rules take into consideration the desires of the owners and their guests, and are subject to revision from time-to-time by the PCA Board of Directors, the final arbiters of any disputes or misunderstandings arising from these rules. The rules apply to all owners, occupants, guests, employees and other persons using the property. Each owner is responsible to see that all occupants of his/her living unit, guests, employees and other persons using the property are made aware of these rules.
- Procedures for Problems and Complaints Except for emergencies, guests should call their rental agent (Puamanavacations.com) at 280-7860. If you have a security issue, please call your rental agent and security at 667-5383.
- Emergency Telephone Numbers In case of bodily injury, theft or fire, the emergency number 911 should be dialed and the problem stated to the emergency operator. After the 911 call, the PCA Office should be notified at 661-3423 or 667-5383.
