It can take 24 to 48 hours for the refrigerator to cool all the food and other items stored inside. This is usually the case when it goes from being completely empty to being filled with a full load of groceries. This is also especially true if you add room-temperature liquid goods, like sodas and beer.
To help speed up the process, try putting your water bottles and freezer-friendly food into the freezer. Store them inside for 20 to 30 minutes to chill them. Then, transfer them back to the refrigerator.
Use dishwasher pods or liquid detergent in the dishwasher only. DO NOT use regular dishwashing soap in the dishwasher.
The top-loaded washer and dryer are located in the upstairs laundry closet in the hallway.
Do not stuff and overload the washing machine when using it. It may break the machine (and it doesn’t clean as well when it is too crowded to allow full movement).
Do not add laundry that is soiled with solids and/or large particles.
Only use laundry detergent intended for washing machines.
Clean out the dryer lint tray and discard all lint into the trash.
Heat & Air Conditioning
We normally set the house temperature at 71 degrees on the Cool setting during the summer season.
It is very critical that you keep all windows and exterior doors closed at all times to keep the bugs out, house cool, and control the interior humidity levels. Due to our area’s high humidity and your constant use of air conditioning inside the home, leaving the doors and windows open may cause the HVAC system to freeze over AND cause water damage to the walls, ceilings, and electronic door locks with condensation build-up.
Only the management can control the temperature as it is locked to avoid accidental freezing of the HVAC system. If you need the temperature changed, please message or text us at (949) 649-3828 and we will be happy to update the thermostat for you.
The charcoal grill is located outside on the left side of the backyard.
Clean off the grill after use to keep the backyard AND home free of pests, like cockroaches and rodents.
Window & Door Alarms
Our Mighty Tortuga House Features include alarms on each window and exterior door leading to the backyard and pool area. This is to ensure that the pool area is secured and locked to keep children from accessing the pool unsupervised. Before opening the windows and/or door, please carefully disengage these alarms by flipping the switch on the alarm boxes.
Swimming pools can be potentially dangerous. They can cause bodily harm and possible death if not used properly. You are fully responsible for supervising ALL guests, including anyone who was directly or indirectly invited by you. Please use the pool at your own risk.
Be vigilant at ALL times in looking after children and anyone who cannot swim.
You are responsible for the safety and maintenance of the pool. Please inform us immediately if you suspect anything is not functioning properly. Except for cleaning out the skimmer basket and using our available nets, please do not operate or handle the enclosed pool equipment.
DO NOT put ANY small dive/children’s toys into the pool or hot tub. While playing with these in the pool may seem harmless, they always end up damaging our filters and pool pump. As a result, we check our filters and pool pump after EVERY guest’s departure. If we find foreign objects in our pool systems, we will charge you $100 or more for the damage fee.
DO NOT bring pets or any sharp/small objects into the pool. We prohibit the use of glass dinnerware or drinkware at the pool area. Rinse off before using the pool.
The swimming pool undergoes weekly cleaning and maintenance. During your stay, please empty the skimmer daily. Keep all floaties out of the pool when not in use.
While we clean and rebalance the pool and hot tub chemicals weekly, you may still find landscaping debris on the surface or bottom of the pool, and/or the water is a little cloudy. These conditions often occur if a storm or high winds blow adjacent tree leaves and foliage into the pool and/or it rains into the pool, changing the water chemistry. Use the pool net to skim off leaves and debris. If the water is cloudy from a recent storm, please let us know and we will reach out to pool support. However, please note that depending on how big the storm was and scheduling, we may not be able to get pool service before our next scheduled appointment.
The pool is heated to 83 degrees from October 1 to April 31. Guests may opt to maximize the pool heat up to 86 degrees for an additional fee of $50 per stay.
We do not heat the pool above 86 degrees in order to optimally maintain the pool’s system, energy use, and microbial growth. Note that our pool IS NOT a hot tub. Feel free to take a bath in one of our bathtubs for a hot soak!
If you want to have the pool heater turned on, please request the service at least 7 days prior to your arrival. Please notify us immediately so our team can accommodate your request to the best of our ability.
