- When there is any ambiguity about vehicle parking, policies of the house, condo access, pool operations, etc... we recommend you ask the property manager immediately. A quick phone call helps prevent many complications.

- Ask a local. Residents can frequently point you in the right direction.
- Ensure you protect the rental owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the rental secured while you are away, exactly like you would at home.
- Double-check every space of the rental to be sure you've gathered all valuables.
