We have a management company that takes care of our home for us and if there are any problems during your stay, they will try to fix the problem as soon as possible. Our home is well maintained but unexpected things may happen during your stay. We will try to get them fixed as soon as possible but we don’t refund rent due to for example, one broken TV or the pool heat not working (although we will refund any money paid for pool heat in this case). Also, please note that Florida can and does get quite cold in the winter and there are times that the pool heat, even though working properly, will not be able to stay at a level that is comfortable for swimming. The pool heating system can usually keep the pool warm enough to swim but when Florida has night after night of weather in the 20s or 30s, it takes awhile for it to heat back up. Thanks for your understanding.
Our villa is "self catering" which means you will need to grocery shop for items like paper towels, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent and even toilet paper (although you will have a starting roll in each bathroom). We try to leave laundry detergent, trash bags, paper towels and soap but when other guests use these up, they sometimes don't get replaced until our next visit. There should also be coffe filters, sugar, salt and pepper in the cupboard but be sure to check before you shop. The best grocery is Publix or Super Target. Go our Formosa Drive and turn left at the light at 192. Publix is a few miles down on the right. Target is on the left. There is also a convenience store in Windsor Palms. Go through the clubhouse to the pool area and it is right there.
The villa has free wireless internet access for your laptop. There are instructions for how to connect in a frame on the desk in the living area. There is also a printer there for your use. We just ask if you use a lot of supplies, that you replace the ink and or paper.
