Q

Questions about Logistics

A

Is the check in/out time flexible? 
Check in time is after 4pm.  Check out time is by 10am.  We can not accommodate early arrivals or late departures.  It takes the cleaners the full amount of time between guests to clean the home.  If you have time to kill, I recommend Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney), Universal City Walk, Celebration, FL or the Disney/Universal mini golf courses as fun options. 

How do I get into the house? 
The house is equipped with an automatic lock on the front door.  The code changes with each guest.  The codes are programmed wirelessly and do not work until shortly before check in time. The codes deactivate about 30 mins after check out.  If you leave something behind please contact the manager or owner as you won’t be able to get back in without assistance.

Do we need to rent a car? 
We recommend renting a car. There is a not a shuttle or bus in the neighborhood. Uber and taxis are available.

What is the parking situation? 
We have parking for 4-5 cars in the driveway. On the street parking is not allowed. RVs are also not allowed.

What if I lock myself out of a bedroom or bathroom? 
There is a small key located on a little nail on the outside of the door jam/trim near the pool master bedroom. This key can open the interior doors.

Where should we shop for groceries?
There are numerous grocery stores close by including a Wal Mart, a Target Superstore, several Publix and several Winn Dixie stores.  The Wal Mart at 550 U.S. 27, Clermont, FL offers online grocery shopping where you order online and drive up to pick up your groceries.  The highest end/fanciest grocery store nearby is the Publix at 29 Blake Blvd Celebration, FL

Q

Pool Related Questions

A

How big is the pool?
The pool is 34 ft long x 16 wide.

What direction does the pool face?
The pool faces South.

Is the pool heated? 
Yes, the pool is heated to 86 degrees for 10 hours per day.  The spa is heated to 100 degrees and is activated by a switch. 

Do you provide pool toys and/or life jackets? 
No.  We do not provide these items but they are readily available at nearby stores.  It is important to remove floating pool toys from the pool when not in use as they block the water returning to the pool pump and can burn out the motor.

Do you have a child safe pool fence or alarm? 
The house has a door alarm system for child safety.  We do not have a pool fence.   There are child pool alarms on all doors leading to the pool.   Please do not tamper with or disable the pool alarms as they are a critical safety tool and are required by law.  To open the doors to the pool, first press the doorbell like button located about 4-5 feet high on the wall near the door.  Once activated you may exit or enter the house.  You must immediately close the door behind you or the alarm will sound.  If you set off the alarm, you can turn it off by shutting the open door and pressing the doorbell alarm button.

How do I turn on the spa?
The spa is turned on by a timer switch which is located on the outside patio wall by the pool screen door closest to Sea Pearl Circle (the door to the far right if you are looking at the house). Open the box closest to the door and turn the timer knob.   When you turn the spa on, the switch turns off the heat to the pool and directs the heat only to the hot tub. It takes the spa about 30 minutes to heat up.  The spa heats to 101 degrees. 

How do I turn on the pool/patio and grill lights?
The pool light is located in an unusual place.  If you are facing the window treatments in the family room, the timer for the pool lights is located on the wall to the left of the window treatments.  Patio lights are located by the door to the patio and also by the kitchen table.  There is a light for the gas grill located on the patio wall outside of the Buzz Lightyear room.

Should we lock the pool screen doors?
Please do not lock these doors as the pool cleaner uses them to access the pool twice a week.
