Our Housekeeping Department has been anxiously awaiting the upcoming rental season... things are starting to get busy, and our inspectors are gearing up to ensure that our vacation homes and condos are ready for occupancy.


Many homeowners may not be aware of our procedures for Pre-Arrival Checks, but they play an important role in ensuring guest satisfaction. All rental properties that have not been serviced by housekeeping or have been vacant for more than 7 days are inspected by a member of our Housekeeping Service team prior to a guest's scheduled arrival. This process is especially important early in the rental season when many properties have been vacant for an extended period of time, but is necessary at other times as well.

Inspectors are trained to check for cleanliness, to make sure appliances are operational, utilities are functioning and to ensure that any maintenance issues can be addressed before the guest’s arrival. This service is provided at no cost to the homeowner, and the majority of the time our inspectors are able to handle this free preparation service for your properties themselves by doing some light dusting or sweeping up the occasional “palmetto bug” (incoming guests never appreciate our state bug.) If your property needs additional service from a housekeeper or a member of the Property Care Team, the inspector will notify the office of what's needed and we will make sure the concerns are handled and the property is readied for the guest.

If you (or your guest) is departing with a renter expected to arrive in the near future and would like us to come and complete an inspection before you head back home, please call our office and we will arrange for that inspection at no charge to you. Many owners have found that this can avoid additional charges for items that may need to be taken care of before an arrival that they can handle themselves before leaving.
