We also provide a dedicated contact telephone number for your guests to use in the unlikely event that they encounter problems with the property.

The fee for this service is $160 per calendar month, and includes replacement of normal bulbs; air-conditioner filters; and 12V, AA, and AAA batteries. Please note though that specific pattern batteries for intruder alarms, electronic door locks, pool door alarms, and other such specialized electronic equipment are not included. Similarly, specialized bulbs, such as halogen high intensity bulbs used in outside security lights are excluded.
