Some properties have BBQs for the guests to use (see property description). The BBQ is a courtesy by the owner and sole responsibility of the guest (gas and cleaning). Vacation homes (houses) have a propane BBQ, some condo associations may provide community charcoal BBQs.
– We do not provide fuel / propane. It is your responsibility to get fuel. (We think you wouldn’t expect the rental car company paying for your gas.)
All properties have a propane container (you can exchange (take it there) it at gas stations / Walmart / Supermarket / Wal-greens for $20 +/-).
However, we do not refill propane / replace empty containers (Federal Regulations and the freaking insurance carrier prohibit transporting inflammable liquids commercially). So the container may be empty when you arrive.
We also won’t reimburse for propane refills. All BBQ fuels are the guest’s responsibility. Why? Simply, because you get the food, not us!
If you don’t like this policy, we encourage you go to a restaurant or use the kitchen. Sometimes the BBQ igniter goes bad (battery empty, they tend to fail). If so, please use a lighter instead. But let us know, our housekeeping likely wants to take care during regular maintenance.
If the propane container has some gas in it when you arrived, great! We think it is a courtesy to leave some gas for the next guest.
– Cleaning of the BBQ is your responsibility.
BBQs are NOT fully cleaned (completely disassembled and cleaned) by our staff. BBQ cleaning is NOT included in the cleaning fee we charge. So please expect to clean it before usage. We expect all guests to clean it AFTER usage – though. Good people take care of their followers, sometimes that not the case. Don’t blame us for the world.
We recommend running the BBQ on hot for 20 minutes without any food to burn off excess grease inside the BBQ BEFORE usage. This is how a propane BBQ should be cleaned/ prepared for usage.
Be nice to the next guests. Let the BBQ run without any food on hot for another 10 to 20 minutes. Scrub off the grease from the cooking surface. Make sure no food is left on the BBQ. This is NOT yummy and shows your attitude if you did. So please, please show your grace to people and DONT do it.
BBQs are a courtesy by the owner for our guests. We are not responsible for anything related to BBQs.
Most properties will come with some BBQ tools, but we don’t restock those, so if you expect a certain tool, you may need to bring or buy it.
If you find the BBQ in bad shape, sorry. Florida weather can be harsh…, let us know we like to take care 😉
