Paddle Board Information

Vanderbilt Villa is happy to offer 2 BOTE paddle boards for you and your guests to use during your stay. We do have a liability waiver any adults planning to participate in the use of the paddle boards will need to sign at the time of check in on a physical copy of the form that will be provided by our concierge member Ayana, when you arrive. Each adult participation will need to sign their own form so Ayana will make sure enough are printed out. In addition, any minor planning to use the paddleboards will also need their legal guardian sign a form on their behalf with the minor’s name indicated on the form. 

A digitally signed copy of the form is not required before your stay. I will attach a copy so that you may review it and ask us any question prior to your stay so that when you arrive you will just have to sign it! 

If no one in your party will be using the paddleboards, Ayana will make sure they are locked up during your stay, so you won’t have to worry about them being out or anyone using them.
