How many people can stay in a villa?
Rental homes are governed by the State of Florida’s Dept. of Hotels. Just like hotels, there is a maximum number of people that you are allowed in each rental. They allow 2 guests per bedroom.
What happens if the extra guests are children who can sleep on the floor?
Florida law is very strict. Between our pool, garden and maid services we know if there are too many guests, plus many of our neighbours are residents and will inform the Management Company accordingly.
Are pets allowed?
Sorry, we have to say no as many guests have allergies.
Is smoking allowed?
Smoking is not allowed in the house, but you may smoke on the outside deck area using the ashtrays provided there if the doors to the property are closed
