Does "maxiumum occupancy" in short term (2 months) condo rental apply to weekend guests? We're renting a condominium in Florida for 2 months. The rental agreement states that the maximum occupancy is 6 (three bedroom unit). We are a family of 6. My daughter would like to invite a couple of friends for a weekend (overnight guests), which would bring the number to 8 for two nights. Would this break the condo rules? What if they stay a week? If it's not permitted, are they allowed to have dinner with 8 people eating in the unit?

How can I motivate them to ACTUALLY remove the bats, protect my unit from further infestation and clean the insulation? [more inside]
