If you think you would enjoy owning a much loved home and would like to ask us any questions or make an offer please feel free to contact me. It’s has been an amazing time, we have met some wonderful people, visited Florida and explored and shared our home with so many people.

Please also note these important terms:
Smoking and Pets:
Our home is a no smoking property with absolutely no exceptions. If you smoke we request that you do so outside. If you do smoke inside the property you will be charged $150 to have the house shampooed and deodorized. Thank you for your help and understanding. Pets are not permitted in our home at any time out of respect to future guests who may have allergies. If it is discovered that a pet has been in the home, there is an automatic charge of $150 to cover the cost of professionally cleaning all carpets and upholstery. There is an additional charge should a pest control company's services be required. You will also be asked to leave the home, forfeiting your stay and all payments or deposits made.
Firearms of any kind are prohibited in our home. If a firearm is discovered in the home, you will be asked to leave, forfeiting your stay and all payments or deposits made.
If paying directly or by PayPal, security deposit is £200 ($320) and will be charged at balance stage. Fully refunded as long as no damage occurs during your stay. PayPal payments can be in either GB£ or US$ to suit you.
£15 per day or at current dollar rate, also payable with your booking costs- please advise at time of booking. Please note they may be a waste of your money if you intend to spend a lot of time at the parks - as it may be too cool at night to go swimming. Pool heat is usually advisable if required from October to April. We turn on pool heat from home - so can respond to your requests quickly if the weather is not as good as expected.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to protect the environment and reduce costs we have a system which turns off the AIR CONDITIONING and POOL HEAT if any of the external doors (including to the garage- games room) are left open. The system will re-boot once all doors are closed.
If you wish to speak to us personally about any query you may have our phone number is +44 (0)1945 430230. This is a UK number so please allow for time differences! We can phone you if you would prefer so please send a number and a good time to call you. We are always willing to talk to you and offer any advice we can. If you prefer you can always e-mail and we will reply as soon as possible. We want your vacation to be the best possible and hope that it will be a time you remember forever.
If you wish to pay by Paypal- we will generate a request for payment direct to you. If you pay by other methods we still produce an invoice for you.
INSURANCE- PLEASE READ
We all think that it could never happen to us - but it just might - we strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance to cover your vacation. We suggest you ask for the independent traveller option to be included. This covers you if any one element in your booking goes wrong as well as if you have to cancel your whole trip for any reason. It may cost you a little extra but peace of mind is worth it. We provide documentation to back up your claims.
Parking and Vehicles
No cars are to be left on the roadside; this is in breach of the rules of Highgate Park. Cars left on the kerb side are liable to be clamped or towed away. There is room for 2 cars on the drive. No cars are to be parked on the lawn areas as this can result in damage to our irrigation system and you will be charged for repairs. Commercial vehicles, campers, mobile homes, recreational vehicles, home trailers, boats shall not be permitted to be parked or stored on the property or anywhere else on Highgate Park. No vehicles may be attached to the utilities of the villa. This is governed and enforced by the Homeowners Association of Highgate Park.
Trash. We have once weekly collections and we have a concierge trash service that moves the bins on day of collection and replaces them back by the garage after the trash cart has been. Please do not put the trash out at any other time - use bags to hold rubbish and recycle where possible. The contents may attract all sorts of animals so make sure the lid is firmly shut at all times or you could be greeted by all your rubbish in the driveway! The carts are critter proof but only if you close the lid properly.
Please be aware that Florida has a tropical climate and that bugs are not a sign that the home is not clean as it is regularly sprayed for insects. If you are unsure please contact our management company for assistance. We love the little geckos who climb up and down our pool screen.
