What to Pack: Linens, Bikes and Essentials
NEVR Vacation Home Preparation:
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, New England Vacation Rentals has implemented expanded guidelines for the cleaning and sanitizing of our Cape Cod Vacation Rental Homes. These guidelines have been developed under the direction of The Vacation Rental Housekeeping Professionals (VRHP), a subsidiary of the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA) and the CDC. The VRMA/VRHP “SafeHome” initiative is working to take all precautions to keep our guests safe and healthy. Special attention will be given to the disinfection and sanitization of “high touch surfaces” such as tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, all knobs and handles, desks, toilets, faucets, TV remotes etc. Cleaners will be using products that have been approved under the EPA guidelines. The dishware has been cleaned–however, if you still feel uneasy about cleanliness we recommend you rewash before use.
Each home has its own independent cleaner that is employed by the owner of this home. The Cleaner contact information will be provided at the home along with a Departure Check Out list for your handling.
All of our homes are equipped for normal housekeeping. Each home has a fully equipped kitchen with all cookware and dishes.
It is best to check the property description on our New England Vacation Rentals website that would have exact details for all items included in your rental home.
*** NOTE– Safety precautions undertaken in the preparation of the home are not foolproof and cannot be guaranteed. NEVR Cape Cod Vacation Rental Homes are used at your own desire and risk. The new cleaning guidelines are not legal or medical advice, and are subject to change as more information becomes available about COVID-19.
Cable TV and Complimentary WIFI. All homes have at least basic cable TV or a Dish network. All homes have Wifi. Most homes no longer have landline telephones but be sure to ask about your specific home and check your cell phone coverage for that area. All homes have either a charcoal grill or gas grill.
***Due to the COVID-19 Situation –Many Comforters, throw pillows, smaller rugs have been removed from our NEVR homes this summer. All beds will have blankets and pillows. Most guests prefer to bring their own Pillows, Favorite blanket, Bed linens, towels etc or are happy to rent them from our Linen Rental Services. . Furnishings, appliances, kitchen supplies, deck and beach furniture are provided by owners and New England Vacation Rentals, Inc. takes no responsibility for the overall condition, quality or number of each.
Most books, magazines, spices, games, pamphlets have been removed from the homes. If your home still has these -use as you wish.
We suggest you pack extra disinfecting items for your personal use such as hand sanitizer and wipes if you feel needed. Masks at this time are also suggested as you will need to go into public places such as the supermarkets.
