CSA VACATION RENTAL INSURANCE - Why You Need To Buy A Guest Protection Plan.

How many of us could afford to lose the non-refundable part of our trip if something unexpected happened? Your vacation is protected when you buy CSA Vacation Rental Insurance, which offers trip cancellation, delay, and interruption coverage.  “COUNTRY CLUB PROPERTIES VACATION RENTALS” has partnered with CSA Travel Protection to provide you with this important insurance and we highly recommend that you purchase the protection to safeguard against the unexpected.  We all want the trip we’ve planned to be the vacation of our dreams. No one wants that dream to turn into a nightmare, but unexpected events can happen. Troubles can occur when you least anticipate them.  Illness...medical emergencies...delayed flights [snowstorms] and other severe weather can force you to cancel or interrupt your trip resulting in unplanned expenses.

Before your departure, please pay careful attention to the following information.

CHECK OUT TIME IS 10:00 A.M  Please understand that we have multiple properties where guests are checking out and new guests are checking in on the same day. We need time to prepare the rental property you are vacating for the arrival of the next guests. Housekeeping and maintenance professionals must have access to all properties from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for cleaning and maintenance after check-out and prior to check-in.  You can assist us by doing the following:

PLEASE WASH AND DRY THE TOWELS  We’re happy to provide towels & linens at no additional expense but they do take longer to dry in higher elevations.  By starting the towels in the dryer, this helps housekeeping ready the house for the next arrival.

LEAVE BEDS UNMADE

CLEANING Every attempt is make to keep cleaning costs to a minimum; however, we insist on maintaining a very high standard and ask that you help with this endeavor by complying with a few simple requests:
  • Use only those towels and linens necessary to be comfortable. Extra laundry means extra expense.
  • Do not leave dirty dishes upon departure. Please load them in the dishwasher if available, or wash them and leave them on the dish drain board.
PLEASE DO NOT REARRANGE FURNITURE OR MOVE OWNERS BELONGINGS  Our owners have asked that we stress the importance of this issue as this can lead to accidental damages and is a safety concern.

TRASH

BEARS AND TRASH ARE BECOMING AN INCREASING PROBLEM AND WE ASK OUR GUESTS TO HELP ELIMINATE THESE PROBLEMS BY BEING RESPONSIBLE WITH THEIR GARBAGE. CURBSIDE TRASH PICK UP IS AVAILABLE AT LEAST ONCE WEEKLY BUT PLEASE DISPOSE OF ANY REMAINING TRASH BY TAKING IT TO ONE OF THE TRASH & RECYCLING CENTERS LISTED BELOW. When trash is left out, bears are attracted to the house which is dangerous for everyone.  We know that disposing of trash can be an inconvenience in the mountains and appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
