At Hodnett Cooper Vacation Rentals, our priority is the safety of the guests, owners and the communities we serve. We realize no measure can eliminate the potential transfer of all germs; but are proactively taking steps to protect you.
Your Vacation Rental
In preparation for your stay, your property will be sanitized using our enhanced cleaning protocol that utilizes CDC guidelines for stringent disinfecting using EPA approved products prior to your arrival, for peace of mind.
At communities that feature communal spaces and amenities, you will notice increased cleaning frequency of high use areas. You will observe amplified signage in these same areas, to reinforce the CDC’s recommendations for physical distancing. We respectfully request that you observe physical distancing guidelines while utilizing elevators, stairwells, pool decks and other confined communal spaces. Please utilize hand sanitizer stations placed throughout the property.
In our indoor office spaces, you will observe staff wearing face coverings. Face masks are required for any guest, vendor, or the like to enter the building. In outdoor areas it is recommended that staff wear facial coverings when distance cannot be maintained. We will be consistently adapting guest areas include signage and spacing indicators. All staff have been advised to shift in person meetings to telework or video conferencing. In the event of an urgent emergency, face masks will be required for any face to face meetings conducted within our offices.
We ask as you leave your rental to explore Saint Simons Island, you continue to observe physical distancing guidelines and wear a mask in the event you are unable to safely distance yourself. Please keep in mind many local vendors are conducting “cashless” payments. In an effort to reduce contact points many have adapted by accepting credit or debit only.
Many Hodnett Cooper Properties are equipped with electronic locks, allowing guests truly convenient and contactless arrival. After the rental contract has been signed electronically, this information will be available to you in our guest app or reservation confirmation.
In the event you must visit the office prior to check in, please observe additional signage that will direct you to contactless check in.
Should you need to enter the office space, Front Desk staff will wear face coverings and stand behind plexiglass shields which have been installed at each workspace. New health, safety and social distancing signage has been added as a friendly reminder of the CDC’s recommendations for physical distancing. We respectfully request that you observe physical distancing guidelines while utilizing elevators, stairwells, and other confined communal spaces. Please utilize hand sanitizer stations placed throughout the offices.
Your Vacation Rental Property
In preparation for your stay, your property will be sanitized using our enhanced cleaning protocol that utilizes CDC guidelines for stringent disinfecting using EPA approved products and then sealed prior to your arrival, for peace of mind. Additional time will be spent disinfecting such high-touch items as door handles, sink faucets, light switches, thermostats, TV remote controls, and telephones. Any items requested to be delivered to guest rooms will be provided in a way that minimizes contact and does not involve staff entering guest rooms.
We realize you are eager to start your vacation when you arrive to Saint Simons Island, unfortunately we are not able to grant early check-in requests. Given the current volume of business and extra cleaning measures there may be a delay in check in time. When planning your travel, please keep in mind that check-in begins after 4:00 pm. Please note, we are unable to release keys to a property prior to our housekeeping staff certifying it is ready for occupancy. Should your property become available earlier, we will contact the phone number on file.
