Maid service can be provided at a starting fee of $75 per daily service. The checkout cleaning will be billed separately according to the condo size. Maid service is performed between 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. EST unless otherwise scheduled. The cleanings last approximately 2-3 hours. This is a great time to go to the beach or do some shopping. The cleaning service has a key to your unit so you do not have to be there during the services.  We ask that you please always lock your valuables in the safe when leaving your unit. Please note we have to use an outside maid service, therefore when they come to clean they can give you 20 minutes if needed but they cannot come back later in the day. So if you cannot give them access you would forfeit your  cleaning that day. Tenant cannot hire their own cleaning staff  or bring their own cleaning staff.
