The following Rules and Regulations apply at Canyon Country Club Estados to ensure the enjoyment of the community by all and to keep it at a consistent standard. As an Owner, Renter, or Guest, you are a part of a small community, and we must therefore have rules so that we may live together in comfort and be protected in our rights of quiet enjoyment. These rules minimize the expenses of maintaining this complex, reduce the liabilities we may incur, and ensure a neat and orderly appearance so as to enhance the resale value of the property. We also must, by law, enforce the Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&R's). Please respect these rules as an underlying framework for better group living.
Please Enjoy Yourself. You Are Welcome To Our Community.
