Ask for details.
Our In-house Maintenance and Housekeeping Staff: are here to make sure that your vacation home is in the best condition that it can be.

Refrigerators and Freezers: Prior to your arrival, the refrigerator may have been left open for a period of time during cleaning. It can take as long as twelve (12) hours for your food to cool and for the refrigerator to return to a medium temperature, especially if you fill it with warm groceries. To avoid the refrigerator going into the defrost cycle make sure the refrigerator and freezer are always set at a medium temperature. If the refrigerator is turned to the highest setting, the humidity will cause the coils to ice up and prevent cool air from reaching the refrigerator compartment, while the freezer compartment remains cold. If this occurs, please return the unit to a medium setting with both controls and allow time to defrost and sta¬bilize. Helpful Hint: Your groceries will cool faster if you avoid frequent opening and shutting of the refrigerator door during the first evening, use an ice filled cooler for drinks. Refrigerator complaints made on the day of your arrival will not be responded to until the next day and there is confirmation of continued problem.
