No seasonings are provided.
We arrived early! Can we still use the pool or go to the beach?
Of course!! Feel free to use the pool (if your property has one) or go to the beach before you check in! If you need somewhere to store your luggage, you can drop it off at our office!
The sliding doors are so hard to open! Why?
Beach properties are required to have hurricane grade sliding doors to sustain winds up to 135 mph, so they can be a little harder to open :)
I have a large vehicle, what is the parking garage height?
If your unit has a parking garage, that information is provided under parking information in your pre-arrival information.
How do I use the Beach Service?
For most (not all) of our condos, beach service is included from March – October! Just walk down to the beach and let the beach attendant know which unit you are in and that you are with Easy Vacation Services. They will take it from there!
The Beach Service includes 2 chairs and 1 umbrella. I have my own chairs and an extra umbrella. Is that okay to bring down to the beach?
Of course! :) You can bring your own chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc.
Can I smoke or Vape in my unit or on the balcony?!
