CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 UP TO DATE INFORMATION AND POLICY
 

Important Update as of July 8, 2020

Please note that we are experiencing a very high call and email volume in office, responses could take longer than anticipated. We’ve also been asked several questions on what is happening locally on our beaches and we will do all we can to keep you informed.

 

Short Term Vacation Rentals in All Panhandle Counties are OPEN. The personalized safety/reopening plans drafted by both Walton & Okaloosa County Commission Boards have been approved by FL Governor Ron DeSantis. 
 
In the event that a travel ban to the state is imposed, we will offer affected guests a 100% credit toward a future stay with no expiration date. However, guests citing a “fear of travel” due to the COVID-19 outbreak, or guests who choose not to travel due to related closures of local beaches and/or amenities, will not be eligible for the credit or a refund. In any event, rest assured that we will continue to provide updates on this page as new information is received. 


Beach Reunion is following the orders/directives of our county and state regulation and not by any other county/state ordinance. We are strictly adhering to our contracts with both guests and homeowners alike.
 

Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in Florida, The Department of Business and Professional Regulation has suspended the on-premises consumption of alcohol at bars statewide. Bars can still sell alcohol to-go and restaurants can continue to serve drinks as long as they don’t get more than 50% of their revenue from alcohol.
 

As testing has become widely available throughout the state to the public, the number of cases were expected to increase. The Department of Health in Okaloosa County (Including Destin, Ft. Walton Beach, and Crestview) and the Department of Health in Walton County (Miramar Beach, Santa Rosa Beach, 30A) are closely monitoring and reporting numbers as they're available. In Walton County, a nursing home facility has been the site many of the reported cases.

BEACH REUNION STERILIZING/CLEANING PROCEDURES

Our staff and cleaning crews have done extensive cleaning and sanitizing in our houses which have been vacant.

"Sanitize It" uses technologically advanced, professional electrostatic sprayers to deliver a safe, effective shield of a hospital-grade disinfectant over all surfaces.

Our cleaning policies have been enhanced and our cleaning staff is thoroughly trained. Linens are being professionally laundered, and we are replacing comforters, towels and sheets with the "triple sheeting" method to ensure quick and effective transitions from guest to guest. All high contact surfaces (doors, windows, handrails, countertops, etc.) are being actively sanitized. 

We are actively adhering to CDC guidelines for sanitizing and securing our rental homes, as well as following the recommendations of the DPBR/Walton & Okaloosa County authorities. Those guidelines are outlined below:
