LA rental alcohol advice please!

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow fodorites, I would like some advice please..
My daughter (23 years old) booked a holiday renatl house in LA on the homeaway website and has just checked in.
The property lists a pool and now that they have arrived they find it is a community pool apparently shared by one other property. The "pool rules" list no glassware (fairly standard) but the owner, who appeared to be somewhat surprised by their age (they are a group of 6, similar age) has stipulated no alcohol at the pool.

They are disappointed by the fact that it is a community pool as the website does not relect this but I have told her to chalk that one up to experience. However I am concerned that this alcohol stipulation has just arisen because they are younger than the owner thought they were which is somewhat discriminatory?

Is this reasonable without any previous notice of such a rule? They are certainly not intending to party hard but would like to relax by the pool with a beer after a hectic couple of weeks travelling. Apparently there is nothing in the house or by the pool that states no alcohol. They would not have chosen this property if they had known this.

Does this seem fair? Is this a normal practice?
I can understand owner's concerns but surely this should have been stated somewhere so that everyone was aware of this restriction from the outset.

Would appreciate any comments please?
