Venue. Perfect Places is not a party to the rental transaction. Perfect Places does not own nor can it contract for any vacation rental property listed on its website (a “Furnished Listing” and collectively “Furnished Listings”). Instead, this Site is a venue that allows Listers to offer Furnished Listings for rent and for Renters to rent such properties. Perfect Places is not involved in the actual transaction between the Listers and the Renters, although Perfect Places provides tools, such as direct booking, that enable a Renter to enter into a transaction to lease a specific property directly from a Lister. As a result, Perfect Places has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of Listers to rent the properties listed or the ability of Renters to pay for the rentals. Consequently, Perfect Places cannot ensure that a Lister and the Renters will actually complete a transaction and does not make any representations as to the quality, location, availability, suitability, or pricing of any specific property.
