Our Commitment to Cleanliness
The health and safety measures that are already in place at our managed condominium units are designed to address a broad spectrum of issues, including COVID-19. Those health and safety measures extend from handwashing hygiene to cleaning product recommendations being shared with the service providers who care for our managed units.
Our associates have been instructed to follow the WHO and CDC recommendations for everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of diseases, and we encourage all guests to do the same both at home and while at our resorts.
