BBQ / Propane policy

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 / charcoal.

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 can’t reimburse for propane refills. All BBQ fuels are the guest’s responsibility. Why? One reason: Because you get the food, not us! Just kidding…

Sometimes the BBQ igniter goes bad (battery empty, they tend to fail). If so, please use a regular lighter instead. But let us know, our housekeeping likely wants to take care during regular maintenance.

– Cleaning of the BBQ is also 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.
Good people take care of their followers, and clean it after usage.

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 😉
