Frequently Asked Questions

We know how much time and money you are investing in your vacation, and we know you will have questions.  To save you time and, hopefully, help you in your planning process, we have tried to anticipate and provide answers to the most frequently asked questions we hear in our office:

Is there a minimum stay required?
Yes, we normally require a 3-night minimum stay.  For stays of less than 6 nights, there is a Short-Stay fee, which covers the short turnaround for house cleaning.  This fee varies based on the total cost of the reservation.

Is there daily housekeeping?
Included in your rental fee is one cleaning (performed upon your departure), unless otherwise indicated in your rental terms.  For any additional cleaning services, if desired, please contact our office (863-588-1680) for availability and rates.  There is a minimum 24-hr notice required for additional cleans and for stays of less than 6 nights, there is a Short-Stay fee, which covers the short turnaround for house cleaning.  This fee varies based on the total cost of the reservation.

Do I need to check in at the office?
There is no need to come by the office to check in, provided all monies for your stay have been received.  Once we have received your signed and completed rental agreement (Registration Form), including your credit card information, we will send the access codes required to access your home.  These codes will access the lock box at your home, which contains your house key.  They may also, if necessary, include security gate codes, if your home is located in a gated community.  Once you have received these codes, simply obtain driving directions to your home via MapQuest or GoogleMaps, and proceed directly to your vacation home.

What time is check in?
 The regular check in time is after 4:00pm, Eastern Time.

What time is check out, and what do I need to do to check out?
Please remember that check out time is prior than 10:00 a.m. unless prior arrangements have been made with our office (863-588-1680).  The house keeping staff will be arriving shortly after 10:00am to perform a routine inventory and home inspection to the house, so please be sure to report any damages or breakages during your stay prior to your departure to eliminate any claim made on your credit card.  Just make sure to lock up, be sure to return the house key to the lock box to avoid unnecessary charges and have a safe trip home. 

What happens if I do leave personal items behind?
The management cannot be held responsible for personal items left in the homes once you have checked out and left the area.  If you should leave something behind, and contact us within the first week after you’ve checked out, we will be happy to ship the items to you.  However, you would be responsible for the cost of shipping.  As we do not have the space available to store items left behind, if no one claims them within the first week, unfortunately, we must dispose of them.

Is the $200.00 downpayment applied to my balance?
Yes.  The $200.00 downpayment that is taken at the time of your confirmed reservation and is deducted from the total amount due.  Please remember: this $200.00 is a Non-Refundable reservation downpayment, so Travel Insurance is recommended.

What is the difference between a standard home and an executive home?
Executive homes will have more amenities than standard homes.  In most cases, the Executive class homes may have upscale furnishings, a Games Room, Jacuzzi, multiple TV’s throughout the home and Internet access.  An Executive home will include at least one of the above mentioned amenities, and it may have more than one or all these amenities.  However, since each home is unique and furnished by the homeowner, we cannot guarantee all these amenities are included in all Executive homes.

What is the cancellation policy?
If you must cancel your reservation 30 days or less from your check in date, you will forfeit the entire cost of your reservation.  Cancellation more than 30 days from your check in date would result in the loss of your $200 downpayment. 

Are the homes non-smoking?
There is no smoking allowed in any of our homes.

Are pets allowed?
No.  However, we will be happy to supply a list of local kennels for boarding.

Is the pool heated?
 Pool heat is not included in the normal cost of your vacation home.  It can be added for $25.00 per night additional, plus taxes. There is a 7 day minimum on pool heat. If the home has a Gas Pool Heater the cost per day is increased to $35 plus tax as this kind of system is more expensive to run. We can let you know which homes have gas or electric pool heaters.

During the summer months, temperatures are warm enough that the pool water naturally heats to a temperature of around 80-degrees, so pool heat is not needed.  In the winter months, we cannot guarantee pool heat temperatures due to weather conditions. The pool heat will not work if the outside air temperature drops below 50-degrees.  If you have chosen to purchase the pool heat during the winter period, Really Florida will not give any refunds due to weather conditions, this is outside of our control.

Is there a Jacuzzi or Hot tub?
 Most of our Executive class homes have a Jacuzzi built into the pool and are only heated if the pool is heated (i.e.: you have purchased additional pool heat or the water is already heated due to warmer summer temperatures).  These are NOT “Hot Tubs” and will not reach the higher temperatures usually associated with hot tubs. 

What is provided in the vacation home?
Each room of our homes is fully furnished for your comfort.  Every convenience has been provided, including kitchen cookware and enough dishware, glassware, and silverware for the maximum number of people that can be booked into the home; sufficient linens for your stay; and a washer and dryer, for your convenience.

What do I need to bring and/or provide in the vacation home?
You will need to provide any food or drink you plan to consume during your stay, as well as additonal toilet tissue, Kleenex tissue, paper towels, napkins, garbage bags, dishwashing detergent and liquid dish soap.  You will also need to bring personal toiletries, such as shampoo, lotions, mouthwash, a personal hair dryer, wash cloths, laundry detergent, etc.

Where do I go for groceries or any other supplies I might need?
We have provided a very informative Visitor’s Guide in each vacation home.  This binder is full of valuable information for you, including locations and directions to grocery stores, gas stations, fast food and restaurants.

Do we have to wait until we get to the theme parks to purchase tickets?
Absolutely not!  We have a link, on our website to Kissimmee Guest Services.  They will be more than happy to take care of your ticketing needs, and even deliver the tickets directly to your vacation home.  Tickets can be ordered online before you arrive or once you are here (via our link or over the phone at 877-273-5636).  No waiting in line at the theme parks!  What could be easier?

Is there transportation or shuttles to the theme parks?
Since we have many vacation homes scattered over a broad territory, it would not be possible to offer any sort of transportation or shuttle service.  (In comparison, the cost of daily parking at the theme parks is much cheaper than the cost of shuttle service arranged by most of the local hotels.)  Also, using your own transportation gives you the flexibility to come and go as you please, instead of being held to someone else’s schedule.

We hope we have answered all of the most commonly asked questions. 

If you have a question we have not addressed, please feel free to give us a call at 863-588-1680. 
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to help you.

We look forward to your visit!
