Q. Are the laundry facilities close by?

Q. What are some of the features of my vacation home?
A. Each Incredible Vacation Home comes complete with wonderful furnishings to help make your holiday memorable and carefree! Other property amenities include FREE local and long-distance calls within the United States (does not include Canada), FREE high-speed wireless internet access, a fully equipped kitchen, Cable TV, DVD player, full-size washer and dryer, iron, ironing board, hairdryer, towels, linens, Pack ‘n’ Play, extra crib (available upon request), Alarm clock, Vacuum, Mop, Broom, complimentary starter soap package, toilet paper, and trash bags.
Q. Do I need to pay for pool heat to have the spa/hot tub heated?
A. Yes, if you would like the spa to be heated you will need to order pool heat with your reservation. A spa or hot tub is not able to be heated on its own. There is no option to only heat the spa since it is using the same water as the pool.
Q. How hot will my pool be if I purchase pool heat?
A. When pool heat is chosen for your home, the pool and spa will be heated to a temperature of around 80-84 degrees Fahrenheit. When the guest then turns on the spa mode, the system will automatically adjust the valves so that the water from the spa is returned back to the spa. This bypasses the pool, and so the spa will be heated up to a temperature of 94-102 Fahrenheit. If left in spa mode, the pool will not receive any heated water, thus leaving it to cool.
Q. Will heated pools cool down overnight?
A. Yes. The pool heaters operate on a timer and are set to come on in the morning and go off in the evening, therefore there will be some cooling off overnight when the air temperature drops. In the coldest winter months heating the pool can be a problem, with the water temperature dropping down overnight. Florida has a high temperate climate but we do get cold fronts coming in from the north that can bring overnight low temperatures in the 30s and 40s. Unfortunately, under these circumstances, there is no way the pool heater will be able to keep the water at 84 degrees. Especially where pool heat is provided via an electrical heat pump, if the outside air drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, the heating pump will be unable to operate effectively below this temperature, and failure of such devices is outside of our Company’s control and is regarded as an act of nature. Please note that cold weather does NOT constitute a mechanical failure, and no refunds will be given for problems that are due to cold weather.
Q. What do I need to bring with me on my vacation?
A. We try to provide each guest with the majority of what you need, but there are some items that are not provided in the homes. While bath and hand towels are provided, you may want to bring your own beach towels and washcloths, as these are not always supplied on the property. As mentioned, Incredible Vacation Home provides complimentary starter soap, toilet paper, and trash bags; however, once these items are used, it is the guest’s responsibility to replenish them. In addition, any basic toiletry items such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothpaste, etc., are NOT provided and must be supplied by the guest.
Q. Do you allow Trailers or Oversized Vehicle Parking?
A. Reunion resort does not allow a trailer of any kind into the resort per the resort rules.
Q. Do you allow pets?
A. We are sorry to say that we do not. We have a strict no-pet policy in all of our vacation homes. Those found to be in violation of this policy will be subject to a minimum $500 fee.
Q. Are your vacation homes non-smoking?
A. All homes have a strict non-smoking policy. Guests are permitted however to smoke on the screen-enclosed balcony, or outside of the property. Those found to be in violation of the smoking policy will be subject to a $500 fee.
Q. Do you have a lost and found?
A. Yes! In the event any personal items are left behind in your vacation home we will do our best to locate them. However, the owner and the management company are NOT responsible for any losses. Incredible Vacation Homes via the management company uses PAKMAIL to handle all shipping of left behind items, and the guest will be 100% responsible for shipping costs.
Q. Are the properties cleaned daily?
A. All of our homes undergo a regimented cleaning process prior to and after your stay. However, during your stay, our cleaning crew does not enter your vacation home. Guests are not required to clean the property themselves, however, cleaning supplies such as a vacuum, mop, and broom are provided to cover any mid-stay spills or other such occurrences. At a guest’s request at least 48 hours prior, a mid-stay clean can be arranged for an additional standard cleaning rate fee.

This type of cleaning will include the following: clean all bathrooms, remake all beds with the SAME linens that are already on the bed, clean the kitchen, empty all trash, sweep and mop all tile or wood floor, vacuum all carpeted areas, wash towels and leave in the dryer.

All guests over the age of two will need to be registered for a pass. Please note some of our properties do not have house guest membership. Therefore, if the property you have reserved has resort membership, then for a fee you can register at least 5 days prior to your arrival in order to use these amenities.

If the guest does not give 5 business days notice an additional late fee of $25 by the resort will apply. All registration fees above will also be taxed.
Once you have paid for registration and chosen your date, guests will be able to use the water park for your chosen day only for a fee of $18 each for adults and $12 each for children. This amount is payable at the water park entrance the day you go. The water park is open 7 days a week from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm (weather permitting).
