  • Return thermostats to room temperature (70F)
  • Make sure all doors – including deck and patio – are locked

LATE CHECKOUTS

There are only 4 hours between our check-in (11AM) and check-out (3PM) and our cleaners need ample time to properly clean and prepare the property for our next guests.

On rare occasion we can offer a late checkout, but they’re always extended on a case-by-case basis and may require an additional fee. The only way to guarantee a late checkout is to reserve an additional day.

Please help us keep Waterfront Gem beautiful for every guest by giving us enough time to prepare! Thanks in advance for your understanding.
