Security Deposit / Insurance Fee -

All guests have to pay a Refundable Security Deposit of $350 / $500 or a $65 insurance fee, depending on the home.

If the homeowner or property manager requires the $65 insurance fee it will be applied at time of booking and will be stated on the property's Mickey Homes web page, the $65 is non-refundable. The $65 insurance fee is a product to protect guests against accidental damage to the home, all insurance plans are not the same, if a claim by the owner or property manager gets denied by or not paid enough for damages said parties may look for resolve by you or seek legal representation.

For Homes that require the refundable security deposit it is required 2 weeks prior to arrival date. This is intended to cover any accidental damage during your stay, for which you the Guest are solely responsible. The security deposit is fully refundable usually within a week of departure but could take up to 30 days after confirmation from the local management company that no loss or damage has occurred. The guest agrees that the lead name submitted on the booking form remains responsible for all loss from the property or its inventory during the Rental Period.


Pool Heat -

Pool Heat: The temperature recommended for recreational and competitive sports swimming by the American Red Cross and many swimming coaches across America is 78 degrees F. We recommend to our owners to set their pool heater to 82 degrees F for guests stays. It is important to note that this temperature will not feel hot like a spa, noir warm like a bathtub. It is only meant to take the chill off the water so you may swim comfortably. When the air temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit the pump (which sucks in air as part of its operation), although on at full operating capacity may not bring the water up to guests desired temperature that was set by owner or property manager. Please note if pool heat is chosen and the stay happens during a Florida Chill of 55 degrees F or less the operating costs for our owners still rise even though the pool water temperature never reached its setting temperature, guests who chose pool heat during these times will not be refunded for pool heat. The pool heater has warmed the water the best it can under the cold conditions, it is working.

Only if the pool heater is not functioning to its capability is when the cost guests paid for pool heat will be refunded.  To determine this the property manager must be called in by the guests during their stay ( not after or the latter part of their vacation ) to determine if the pool heater is not operating properly.

The pool is cleaned and chemically balanced every week for your safety and comfort; however on rare occasions it may be necessary to apply extra chemicals to the pool to maintain safe and correct chemical levels. Should this occur during your stay it will be necessary for you to be out of the pool for a period of 12-24 hours for safety reasons. Your Children are your responsibilty, do not allow unsupervised children to use the pool or spa. Items such as clothes, toys etc. must not be left in the spa.
