Getting to know your vacation home
Florida has a sub-tropical climate and care must be taken with food that is left uncovered.
Uncovered food can attract insects very quickly. In the unlikely event you should discover any quantity of ants, palmetto bugs or other unwelcome guests, please contact Cosy Casas to schedule a service call.
Please only use dishwasher detergent in the dishwasher. Any other soap products including the normal liquid dish soap will overflow the dishwasher. Please make sure all excess food is removed from plates, bowls, pans, etc. The dishwasher will not operate if the door is not properly closed.
Do not place wooden, plastic or non-stick pans in the dishwasher unless they are clearly marked as “dishwasher safe “.
To use the required burner, push in the knob and turn it to the desired temperature. To use the oven, select “bake”, with activates the bottom element and select the desired temperature. For safety, ensure that no pan handles are facing outward and remove all items, once cooled, from the top of the stove when no longer in use.
There is a microwave unit in the kitchen. Please insert microwave-safe food and crockery only and check that the time you selected is correct for the cooking you are doing. Sealed containers and eggs in their shells can explode if cooked in a microwave. DO NOT place any metal trays, foil or utensils in the microwave as this can cause fire.
To enjoy the most of your vacation experience, nobody wants to call a plumber. Please only flush toilet paper and place other disposable items (diapers, baby wipes, sanitary napkins, etc) in the waste bin. If you have a clogged toilet or sink and are unable to remedy the situation with the provided plungers, let us know and we will assist or call a plumber. Any service housecalls may result in an additional charge.
Should the smoke detector sound due to burning toast or as result of cooking on the stove and you are confident there is no cause for alarm, open all windows and doors and try to fan the smoke out. Please do not disconnect the batteries in the smoke alarms.

Become familiar with the layout and exits of your vacation home. Know what floor you are and know where the stairwells are,in case of fire.
DO NOT USE THE ELEVATOR. Plan two ways out of every room and make sure all guests can unlock and open all windows and doors quickly, even in the dark. Agree on a meeting point for all guests in case of an emergency escape.
In an effort to help prevent a fire, we kindly ask that you follow the safety guidelines:
* Please keep small children away from stove/cooker and grill areas.
* Never leave pans with grease unattended, please remove them as soon as cooked.
* Never use water on a grease or electrice fire.
* Always keep a pan lid handy to smother a stovetop grease fire.
* Do not smoke inside your vacation home.
* When using the clothes dryer, be sure to remove all lint before each use.
All vacation homes have a fire extinguisher.
While we are sad to see you leave, we hope you enjoyed your stay and will continue to vacation with us !

Please place all dirty dishes in the dishwasher and start the dishwasher before departing. Please refrain from leaving used or dirty dishes in the sink or putting dirty items away in the cabinets.
We kindly ask you NOT to strip the beds. Our cleaning staff will do this, as it makes it easier for them to check the linen and sort it before putting to wash.
