Things to ask your villa owner part 2
Continuing from part one, here are just a few more things you may wish to discuss with your villa owner before arrival at your holiday property.
How do I operate the pool alarm?
One of the first things you may wish to do when you arrive is take a dip in the pool!
Florida law states that rental properties should have either a pool alarm or a pool safety fence. If you don' t already know then ask your villa owner. If the property has a pool alarm (different to a security alarm) make sure you know how to deactivate it.
The instructions will probably be in your villa information folder or with the information sent to you before arrival, but you will most likely me hot and tired when you arrive and having this knowledge upfront will save time if you' re desperate for a dip!
Some properties have both an alarm and a fence and in these properties the fence may be stored and only used for extra security if guests wish. If this is the case in your rental property check wether the fence will be in place on your arrival. If it' s important that it is then let your villa owner know, they should be able to arrange it.
How do I access free telephone calls?
With the advent of Sype, iMessage, what' s app, face time, Viber etc etc, free international calls are not such a great requirement to keep in touch with those back home, but sometimes a landline phone call is necessary ( my Mum could never have dealt with anything else! ) Local phone calls are free, but local is only the very immediate area, even Walt Disney World is not considered local!
Many villa owners offer free national and international phone calls, usually via a special service. Information on how to access free phone calls will usually be found in your villa information folder or by the telephone, but again, having this information to hand or knowing where you can access it is always helpful.
It also helps to know the villa phone number before you go so that you can leave it with friends and relatives. Mobile phone coverage can sometimes be ' patchy' so an emergency contact number is helpful.
These are just a few of the things you may wish to know before you arrive, or immediately on arrival at your holiday villa. Your villa is likely to have an information folder filled with useful information about your holiday home and the surrounding area, but if there is something you need to know, just ask, your villa owner will be only too happy to help.
One final thing, whilst your villa owner will be happy to be contacted throughout your stay, the first port of call should be your property manager as they are on the spot and can deal with your concerns and queries without delay.
Have fun and enjoy your vacation!
