Monday morning update

( – The fate of a US landfall is all dependent on if and when this storm turns northward. Right now the storm is moving west at 1 mph. The question is when will it turn northwest. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) says it expects the storm will turn to the north over the next couple of days.

The good news for the US is that most of the forecast models meteorologist use — like the European and the American models — show the storm remaining offshore.  – Source:

As Orlando is still in the hurricane cone no one is certain what will happen, so we advise you to be ready for strong winds and heavy rain. Keep all your personal belonging indoors and stay safe when travelling.

Update – Aug 29 – 2:15 PM

Hurricane Dorian is on it’s way to the Florida mainland with an expected landfall on Monday morning. We are preparing everything we can to minimize the impact of this hurricane.


Due to the nature of this storm, we are allowing guests that are due to arrive to cancel their reservation free of charge, to make room for evacuees from the coastal areas.

We are also trying to accommodate current guests that are due to leave over the next several days by extending their stay or moving them to another available unit.

If this is applicable to you, please contact our guest services team at +1(800) 464-4104 or via so we can find you the best solution.

Vacation home owners

We will be going around to each property to take all small patio furniture and patio pillows inside. The garbage bins outside in each property will be temporarily stored inside the garage until after the storm. We are also asking our guests to make sure that all windows and doors are properly closed.

Please be aware the pools will be closed as the weather builds up to ensure the safety of all guests. When the weather calms, they will re-open.
