Frequently Asked Questions

The primary purpose of a bathroom exhaust fan is to remove the moisture out of the bathroom.   These fans help control and eliminate bathroom odors as well.   It will rid the bathroom air of excess moisture, humidity, and other pollutants.

When should you operate the fan?   According to the HVI (Home Ventilation Institute) bathroom fans should only be operating for about 20 minutes during and after a bath or shower.  

Should the fan be left on all day or left on all night?     You especially should never leave the fan on all of the time.  If it is run too long, it can overheat and become a serious problem and fire hazard.  
Please remember you are in Florida, where temperatures routinely exceed 90 degrees during the day. A properly functioning AC system can, at the most, lower the temperature 20 degrees from the outside temperature, so if it's over 90 degrees outside, the AC will struggle to cool the house below 75 degrees. Setting the temperature 20 degrees or more below the outside temperature or running it with windows and/or doors open will cause the AC system to run excessively while it attempts to achieve the set temperature and may cause the HVAC system to freeze and malfunction.  If this happens, you may incur an additional charge for AC repair and you will not have any AC until the repair service is able to resolve the issue.  Refunds are not given for this.  We recommend keeping blinds and curtains closed during the day to limit light/heat from entering the property.  The hottest part of the day will be between 2pm and 7pm - you should not anticipate the AC to be able to start to drop the temperature lower until after that time has past and the sun has set.
We get asked about Palmetto Bugs all the time.  They have been in Florida for a LONG TIME!  They can be pretty big, they fly and will scurry around the floor but they are largely harmless. They do occasionally come inside, especially at night and during or after any storms. We have a lot more sightings during our summer rainy season.  We have regular pest control service at all of our properties to assist in managing them.  However, they will get in thru open doors, garages, windows, etc.  

Tree Frogs & Lizards are also indigenous to our tropical climate and will be around all of our properties.   These are good for the environment and are not anything that we treat for!  You may find the occasional one has gotten into the property and not made it out - or has gotten in and is hopping around.   There is nothing wrong with this - it is part of our local environment.  

This is really just informational.  They are a part of our Florida Tropical Climate.  No refunds are given for these issues. Thank you!

Tenant is at least twenty-five (25) years of age & will be an occupant of the unit during the entire reserved dates.  In addition to Tenant, other authorized occupants that have been identified to us are included.  Should any unauthorized persons occupy or use the Premises, Tenant shall vacate the premises immediately without any refund.  Rental status is transient and gives no residential claim to the guests. Any changes in occupancy/dates must be made and agreed to in writing by both parties.  Transient accommodations, or "short term rentals" are also subject to applicable Florida Sales and County tourist development taxes which are added as a part of your total payment.  Should the laws change regarding applicable taxes, we will adjust your reservation accordingly.  This may include an additional charge should tax rates be increased or a refund if tax rates are decreased.
Reservations made for teenagers or young single groups will not be honored without any accompanying adult staying in the unit at ALL times.  We require at least one member of the party to be 25 (twenty-five) years of age.  Any violaters will be evicted according to Florida Statute 508.141 with forfeiture of all monies.
The maximum number of occupants allowed per property is listed in the property description.  Maximum capacity applies to any given time, such as during a gathering of people at the property that includes guests that are not staying overnight.  If maximum capacity is exceeded, occupancy may be terminated without a refund.
Any reservation obtatined under false pretense will be subject to forfeiture of reservation deposit, damage deposit, and/or balance of rental payment.
Pets are allowed on property (max 2) less than 25 lbs - must be disclosed in advance and pet fee paid.  If there is evidence of pets without disclosure, a $500 fine will be charged.
Smoking is strictly prohibited.  Your damage deposit will be forfeited, and you will incur an additional charge for carpet cleaning and deodorizing if any evidence of smoking is found.  Or you will be billed a $500 penalty for violating the Smoking Policy.  Smoking would include all forms of tobacco, cigarettes, pipes, cigars, e-cigarettes, vaping, etc.
Linens & towels are provided.  Excessive stains, damage or loss of the linens will result in a $50 charge.  An intial supply of paper products is provided.  Extra items are the responsibility of the Tenant.  Limited cleaning supplies are provided.  There is a $50 fee to restage the house if furniture is moved around and not returned to its original place.

Please be aware - when you bring in all of your groceries and load up the refrigerator - it is going to take time to cool everything back down!  Make sure you do not block the vent that brings in the air-flow.  The more full the refrigerator is - the harder it is to keep everything cool.  It needs unrestricted air-flow & circulation to be able to keep everything to the appropriate temperature.  Once you put everything in - please wait a minimum of 4 hours before reaching out that there is an issue.  We won't be able to do anything until that much time has already passed since you inserted your items.  Thank You!
Guests are not authorized to perform, schedule or coordinate any repairs to anything at the property during their stay.  Any issues that arise where maintenance or repairs are needed will be coordinated by the host only.

Home Away from Home
5/5 stars
Bluebird Bungalow was an absolutely perfect stay. The location is perfect within walking distance to all sorts of cute restaurants, independent shops, parks and playgrounds. A 2 min drive to the River where they always have great festivals and live music. 5 min to the highway so you can get anywhere in a jiffy. The house is perfectly appointed with all the amenities you need. Nice sized rooms enough for my family of 5. Cute and eclectic decorations were a personal touch. Even had a huge backyard with bonfire swing and lawn games for my kids! Loved our stay and looking forward to staying here again next year! 10/10 recommend!

Peaceful moments
5/5 stars
Bluebird bungalow was the perfect stay within the heart of Avondale! Shops and restaurants were within walking distance and a quick distance to the Riverside arts market! Each morning I would get up early and sit outside to listen to the birds with the sunrise, then walk the dogs over to Boone Park. Bluebird bungalow was the perfect getaway, very welcoming and peaceful for whatever the adventure!
