Coronavirus cleaning practices for our vacation rental properties.

Dorinda Keeler - Hospitality Manager

Here at Unsalted Vacations, we take our role in slowing the spread of the COVID 19 virus very seriously. We know we, like most everyone else, are looking forward to traveling again when it is safe to do so. It is our responsibility to create safe spaces and healthy environments for people. Therefore we have provided our cleaning crews with instructions for heightened cleaning and disinfecting measures. In accordance with recommended CDC cleaning procedures, we have compiled a list of specific items within our managed properties that we will address during every cleaning for the foreseeable future. We recognize that we are the first line of defense in preparing a property for safe enjoyment by our guests, and we will continue to pull out all of the stops to ensure our environments are safe for you when you are ready to travel to our area. 


It is our responsibility to create safe spaces and healthy environments for our guests and we take cleaning very seriously.
