Temporary guests may be called in for up to 90 days, however their guest pass is only active for up to 10 days. A member may call in up to 10 temporary guests per day. 

Permanent Guests

Members may have up to six permanent guests. Permanent guests do not have an expiration, however their guest pass is only active for up to 10 days. While this type of guest does have an expiration, it is important to note that the Canyon Lake POA does clear the permanent guest lists on an annual basis at the start of each fiscal year. This process takes places to ensure the accuracy of the permanent guest list. The permanent guest list can be easily managed through the dwellingLIVE app or website. Alternatively, you can visit the Canyon Lake POA Member Services office for assistance.
