Wish You Were Here
First things first. Let's talk about the advantages of vacation properties compared to other lodging options.
A major benefit to staying in one of our clean and spacious vacation rental properties is the ability to distance yourself and your family from others. You can rest easy by knowing no one else will be in the property while you are there. Stay in and prepare your own meals or venture out in your own vehicle at your leisure. And while your there, take full advantage of the amenities offered in our vacation rental properties, including private swimming pools, spacious decks, and outdoor living areas complete with kitchens and grilling areas, as well as game and entertainment rooms - all there for you and your family to enjoy.

What is Garden City Realty doing to prevent the spread of the COVID-19?
At Garden City Realty, we want you to know the health and well-being of our guests and team are our top priority and we want to reassure you of the diligence of our approach. We want you to know that with us, you’ve always been able to count on outstanding cleaning and service from our professional housekeeping team.
In response to Covid-19, we’ve taken extra steps to ensure our rigid sanitization and disinfection protocols and best practices are being satisfied within all of our rental properties, offices, and operation facilities. These procedures expand on our already thorough cleaning measures and the amount of time our trained housekeepers spend caring for each of our rental properties. So, you can rest easy knowing the property you are staying in is safe for you and your family.
Our enhanced cleaning procedures comply with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as guidance from hospitality industry experts. Here’s what this means for you.
Sanitizing and disinfecting
In addition to methodically cleaning every home between guest stays, we’re applying disinfectant to all hard and soft surfaces with an EPA approved disinfectant. While disinfecting, we’re paying special attention to high-touch areas including, but not limited to, light switches, door knobs, counters, TV remotes, hangers, luggage racks, furniture knobs, dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, washer, dryer, cribs, high chairs, games, books, shower curtains, trash cans, and hampers.
If your rental includes fresh linens and towels, or if you’ve added them to your reservation, take comfort in knowing those items are processed in our own in-house commercial facilities. We use only commercial grade bleach, detergent, and fabric softener per load with hot water temperatures set at 145° - hotter than the industry standard. To remain germ-free, processed linens are immediately folded and shrink-wrapped opened only by you, the guest, upon arrival.
Protecting our teams
We provide our employees with gloves and face masks to wear while visiting homes for maintenance, housekeeping, or any other purpose. Also, employees must implement social distancing procedures while in an occupied property.
Going above and beyond
Garden City Realty guests can expect more than just professionally cleaned homes. Our housekeepers all receive required training on proper cleaning procedures and the use of cleaning chemicals.
Upon arrival at your rental property, you’ll find a welcome bag, equipped with starter amenities including basic toiletries and paper towels. We also routinely inspect each property to make sure everything is in working order—from smoke detectors to the Wi-Fi - all to keep you safe and comfortable. We focus on the details, so you can focus on creating lifelong vacation memories.
Book confidently. Stay comfortably.
We know your vacation time is valuable, which is why we want to relax and enjoy your time with us. With dedicated professional teams like housekeeping, laundry, and maintenance - you can count on Garden City Realty throughout your stay.

- All housekeeping staff is provided with hand sanitizer, gloves, and masks.

- Proper hand hygiene is part of the messaging our team receives on a daily basis.
