COVID-19 Response

At Charleston Coast Vacations, the safety of our guests and employees is an uncompromising priority, and we are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19). We are consulting the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and DHEC to understand the evolving situation.

Vacation Information

For those planning to visit our Charleston Coast this spring & summer, we are looking forward to hosting your vacation! Our goal is for everyone to have a relaxing, enjoyable vacation, but most importantly we want you and your family to do so in a safe environment. We are implementing new procedures in order to keep our guests, vendors and staff safe. 

Arrival & Departure

As our contracted cleaning companies will be taking additional time to clean and sanitize each property, early check ins and late departures are not available. Even if a property is cleaned early, we will not allow early check ins to allow the property time to sit unoccupied.  If you already are already planning a late arrival or early departure, we ask you please let our team know ahead of time to help us with planning. 

Check in will be after 4pm. We have a contactless check in system in place for all properties. Many of our properties already employ a keyless entry system. You will receive the check in information 3 days prior to your arrival date. For properties with physical keys, we will email you instructions on how to obtain your keys and passes prior to your arrival. All keys and passes will be sanitized prior to check in in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Cleaning & Supplies

Our cleaning companies will be performing departure cleanings with CDC guidelines Including wearing appropriate PPE during the service. We suggest all guests plan to bring any additional cleaning supplies, hand sanitizers and hand soaps you feel you may need during your vacation. We are in a densely populated area and cleaning supplies may be limited at local stores and from our providers. We suggest planning accordingly for your vacation. 

Our goal is to provide one bar of hand soap and one roll of toilet paper per bathroom, one roll of paper towels, 3 dishwashing pods, a 3 oz bottle of Palmolive dish soap and a new sponge for the kitchen. Due to the limited availability of these supplies from our suppliers, we highly recommend bringing your own supplies as these cannot be guaranteed.

Our Offices & Staff

Our offices will be staffed during regular business hours Monday - Saturday 9AM - 5PM with a limited number of employees. Should you need assistance with anything in your vacation rental, we will attempt to handle remotely or when the property is empty. All staff & vendors will be required to wear personal protective gear inside the properties when occupied and will sanitize any surfaces touched during our visit. If you need to visit our office during office hours, we ask you to limit the number of people. 

This is a constantly evolving situation and we will do our best to update this page as new things unfold. If you have any questions regarding your upcoming vacation, please reach out to us.
