Interaction with guests
It will be a very easy check in/check out process. Prior to arriving by 5:00 p.m., present your Airbnb paperwork to front office and pay a one time $5.00 parking fee. If arriving after 5:00 p.m., present paperwork to the Security booth for a TEMPORARY overnight pass, but you MUST return to the office the following morning for proper check in. You will receive an email from the owner prior to your check-in date with the cottage front door KEYLESS access code. In case of an emergency, numbers are listed in the house manual who will call fire or police. Please familiarize yourself with this manual as the owners do not live in the resort community.
Other things to note
Upon your check in, you will receive a tag to place on your mirror that permits you to come and go as you please during your stay. The resort security patrols throughout the night, 24/7, for everyone's safety. There are five (5) colored rubber bracelets provided for each guest in the home that you MUST have in your possession while visiting the pool and tennis court areas to designate that you are a resident visitor of our private community. If you have invited guests, you will have to purchase more at the front office. There is a cost to the owner for these bracelets, so, if they are not left in the home upon your checkout, or if they are lost, you will be charged $25 for each lost bracelet for a replacement. Remember, this is a "tropical" resort area. Our home is on a quarterly bug extermination plan, but you may still find a couple of bugs "belly up" at times. We have never had renters find "live" ones running around. This is just the nature of the beast in tropical areas.
The resort does have a "quiet time" after 11:00 p.m. for our neighbors. No one likes to hear blaring music especially since we live on the water where sound carries. The resort is a relaxing place to get away from the hustle and bustle and is not known for the "college" hard drinking and party scene. That is left for the island just minutes away across the big bridge that sometimes takes a while to cross over because of the crowds in summertime. That's what makes it especially nice about the resort's quietness and peacefulness. You can have your "cold" one on your own deck and "kick back and enjoy" without being disturbed! We do adhere to a STRICT cancellation policy especially for those booking for the winter months in advance for Jan-Mar. Please be sure to read the Airbnb policy.
