14. Can I heat the pool or spa?
Pool heat is recommended for folks staying October-April. Pool heat requests will match the same number of nights as the total length of your stay. There’s a nightly fee for pool or spa heat. It also means the guest agrees with the pool heat operation information supplied on our DVRO FAQ page:

  • Cooler temperatures outdoors will not result in a refund of the pool heat cost.
  • The pool will take 24-48 hours to heat up.
  • Pool heating only runs during the daytime for a set number of hours on a timer.
  • There is a 5 night minimum on pool heat requests.
  • Pools with spas attached will be the same water temperature; they cannot be heated separately.

PLEASE NOTE: if the outside temperature drops below 55 degrees, the heat compressor will shut down automatically and the pool will lose heat.  The unit will automatically turn back on when the temperature rises above 55 degrees.  This is a safety measure and beyond our control.

Please help us take care of your property.

A white folder of helpful tips will typically be displayed in the home asking the guest to follow certain guidelines such as, but not limited to:

1. No Smoking within any vacation property. Violators will be subject to extra deep-clean costs.

2. Pets are only permitted within designated pet friendly homes. Violators will be subject to pet fee.

3. Guests are permitted to enter and exit the property only on their scheduled dates of stay. Guests who enter the home prior to their scheduled check-in time, will be required to pay for an early check-in. Guests who depart later than their scheduled departure time will be required to pay a late check-out.

4. A minimum temperature for which the A/C can be set will be noted. Lowering the A/C beyond this minimum may cause the A/C unit to freeze and the guest is held liable for the repair cost.

5. Do not tamper with the pool heat box. Guests who help themselves to pool heat will be charged for the standard pool heat costs over the duration of their stay by the management company. Please place the child-safety fence back in the upright position on the pool deck prior to departure from the home.

6. You will be expected to place your garbage in the proper collection bin.  Any excessive trash within the home or left upon the exterior of the property will subject the guest to proper cleaning charges and/or an excessive trash fee.

7. Please do not place paper towel or other items other than toilet paper in the toilet bowls. Plungers are provided but if a plumber is needed the guest will be subject to the cost incurred.

8.  Any damage that is malicious or intentional to the home including the exterior or interior, or contents within the home will result in repair or replacement charges that will be billed to the guest directly by the management company of the property. Stolen items from the property will result in charges that will be billed to the guest directly by the management company and the incident will be reported to authorities. The management company of a vacation property may require you to complete a registration form and/or security deposit form authorizing $300 upon your arrival date which is then held during your dates of stay in order to safeguard the property. This is not a charge through Discount Vacation Rentals Online. The security deposit is authorized and released back to the guest at the discretion of the rental property supplier and/or property manager, not by DVRO.

9. Keep your key in the lock box. Lost or stolen keys will need to be replaced and the guest will be charged directly by the management company to cover this cost. Upon checkout of the home place the key back in the lock box with the lock box top secured safely in place. If you lose the top of the lock box that holds the key, you will be charged for the lock box replacement.

10. Please clean up spills, smudges or stains made by your party on the floor, carpet, or bedding (towels, pillow cases, sheets and blankets). These items need to be enjoyed by the next party entering the home and we’d greatly appreciate your help in cleaning up if your toddler spills their juice on the floor for example. Carpet cleaning or dry cleaning costs will be a result of items left stained by a guest and the guest will be charged directly for such cleaning costs or replacement of the items damaged/stained.
