Once you arrive at our beach house, you will likely want to dive in and use some of our amazing amenities. Below are tips on how to use our house features and appliances safely and effectively.
If the internet is not working, double-check that you are on the correct network.
If you still cannot connect, unplug the router for 30 seconds and then plug it back in.

When the refrigerator goes from completely empty to being filled with a full load of groceries upon your arrival, it can take 24-48 hours to cool all of the groceries. This is especially true if you add room temperature goods, like sodas and beer.
To help speed up the process, try adding your water bottles and freezer-friendly food to the freezer for 20-30 minutes to chill them before transferring them back to the refrigerator.
There is also another refrigerator in the garage for you to use. Consider distributing your food and drinks across the two fridges to ensure that there’s enough airflow to circulate and chill the food.
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
The normal house temperature is set at 71 degrees on the Cool setting during the summer season.
Please keep all open windows and doors closed to keep the interior temperature of the house comfortable.
The temperature is locked and can only be controlled by management. If you need to adjust the house temperature, please contact us at (949) 649-3828.
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 and Door Alarms
There are 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 that can cause bodily harm and possible death if not used properly. You are fully responsible for supervising ALL guests, including anyone on the property that was directly invited by you or not. Please use the pool at your own risk.
Children and anyone who cannot swim must be vigilantly supervised at ALL times.
You are responsible for the safety and maintenance of the pool and must inform us if you suspect anything is not functioning properly.
DO NOT touch the gated pool equipment without permission. If you wish to change the pool temperature, please contact us.
Do not put ANY small dive/children’s toys into the pool or hot tub. While playing with these toys in the pool may seem harmless, these objects 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, you will be charged $100 or more to remove and/or repair any damages.
Do not bring pets or any sharp/small objects into the pool. Use of glass dining or drinkware is strictly prohibited from the pool area. Rinse off at the outdoor shower before using.
The swimming pool is cleaned and serviced weekly. During your stay, please empty the skimmer daily. Keep all floaties out of the pool when not in use.
You are responsible for the safety/maintenance of pool equipment and should contact us ASAP if you suspect anything is not functioning properly.
The pool heater is only available for use during the cold winter months of November – March.
An extra fee per stay is charged to warm the pool up to 86 degrees. Note that we do not heat the pool above this temperature in order to optimally maintain the pool’s system and energy use. Note that our pool IS NOT a hot tub. If you would like to soak in hot water, please feel free to take a bath in one of our many bathtubs!
If you would like to have the pool heater turned on during your stay, but did not request the service prior to your arrival, we cannot guarantee same-day turn-on service. Please notify us immediately and we will work with our team to accommodate your request to the best of our ability.
