Do I need to pay for pool heat to have the spa/hot tub heated?
Yes, pool/SPA heating can be purchased at additional cost. You can simply add the heating to your reservation upon booking or contact us to add the option after reservation. A 24 hours notice is required before check in to purchase the heating so that we can ensure heat is turned on before your arrival. A spa or hot tub is not able to be heated on its own. There is no option to only heat the spa, since it is using the same water as the pool.
How hot will my pool be if I purchase pool heat?
When pool heat is chosen for your home, the pool and spa will be heated to a temperature around 86 degrees Fahrenheit. When the guest turns on the spa mode, the system will automatically adjust the valves so that the water from the spa is returned back to the spa. This bypasses the pool, and so the spa will be heated up to a temperature of 94-102 Fahrenheit. If left in spa mode, the pool will not receive any heated water, thus leaving it to cool.
Will heated pools cool down overnight?
Yes. The pool heaters operate on a timer and are set to come on in the morning and go off in the evening, therefore there will be some cooling off overnight when the air temperature drops. In the coldest winter months heating the pool can be a problem, with the water temperature dropping down overnight. Florida has a high temperate climate but we do get cold fronts coming in from the north that can bring overnight low temperatures in the 30's and 40's. Unfortunately, under these circumstances there is no way the pool heater will be able to keep the water at 86 degrees. Especially where pool heat is provided via an electrical heat pump, if the outside air drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, the heating pump will be unable to operate effectively below this temperature, and failure of such devices is outside of our control, and is regarded as an act of nature. Please note that cold weather does NOT constitute a mechanical failure, and no refunds will be given for problems that are due to cold weather.
Do you allow pets?
All homes have a strict no-pets policy due to some of our guests having extreme pet allergies. All rental agreements specify a minimum $500 fee for if pets are found in the property.
Are your vacation homes non-smoking?
All homes have a strict non-smoking policy. Guests are permitted to smoke outside of the property in areas that are not covered. Those found to be in violation of the smoking policy will be subject to a $500 fee.
Are the properties cleaned daily?
All of our homes undergo a regimented cleaning process prior to and after your stay. However, during your stay our cleaning crew does not enter your vacation home. Guests are not required to clean the property themselves, however, cleaning supplies such as a vacuum, mop and broom are provided to cover any mid-stay spills or other such occurrences. At a guest's request at least 48 hours prior, a mid-stay clean can be arranged for an additional cleaning fee.
