Frequently Asked Questions
Vacation rentals offer a more home-like feel than hotel rooms. You will have the opportunity to cook your own meals and enjoy views from every room in our properties, which are decorated with unique styles for each individual owner! Also, you can save money on food by preparing your own meals, or opt for takeout if you prefer.
When you book with Paradise Breeze Vacation Rentals and Realty LLC, we will not charge a "guest fee" to advertise on our site. Online travel agents like Airbnb, Homeaway or Booking charge customers an additional fee for advertising their service which is added onto your total cost of renting property through one agent's website without any transparency about where that money goes - but it doesn't have to be! When using direct contact channels (like calling us directly), there isn’t this extra surcharge so everyone wins: You save time by cutting out all those middlemen who don't provide anything but ads.
Third-party rental sites like Airbnb, Vrbo, etc are primarily advertising sites which provide maximum visibility for those wanting to find renters for their properties. We do advertise our properties on such websites, however, Paradise Breeze is a full-service provider, that manages the entire process from marketing to maintenance.

The pool heaters will turn on at the appropriate time and go off in the evening, there is some cooling off overnight when the air temperature falls. In the cooler winter months, it can be difficult to keep water warm. Heating units are designed to work at certain temperatures. If the outside air temperature drops below 55° Fahrenheit, electric heating pumps do not operate as effectively and can cause problems with your pool's functionality. Failure of such devices to heat the pool to the desired temperature is outside of our control and is regarded as an act of nature, not a mechanical failure and no refunds will be given for problems due to cold weather.
