Our commitment to our Guests, Owners, and Team Members


Since late January, LTGC has been monitoring the news stations and  staying updated on precautionary measures due to COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus.  Through our research, we wanted to share how we feel this will affect vacation rentals and wanted to share some of the information/links that we have found to stay up to date on recent happening and precautions we are taking to ensure your safety.

Our Housekeeping Team members clean and sanitize all hard surfaces of our vacation homes, including but not limited to floors, countertops, TV remote, doorknobs, window handles, taps, stair railings, light switches, kitchen appliances, etc.

The quality of disinfectants we use should remove 100 percent of the microscopic organisms on surfaces, and effectively stop the spread of disease and viruses. Our Bed linens and towels are laundered offsite at our linen facility. There is no evidence to suggest that this particular coronavirus will survive the wash chemistry and temperatures in the wash and dry process. All soiled linens are treated as if they are contaminated.

Our housekeeping staff is trained to use the best hygiene practices at all times. With the combination of these best practices, our employees, clients, and guests should be safe from the spread of coronavirus.

An added layer of protection is included in every stay with us as our mattress protectors and pillow protectors are required for all of our houses. These help in keeping our homes as sanitary as possible while not compromising on comfort.

By keeping our vacation rental’s clean to the highest standards, we feel confident that you’ll be impressed with the quality, ensuring a great all around experience and also to protect you and the property from coronavirus.

How to Stay Healthy During your Stay

Although we feel extremely confident our quality assurance team will be ahead of the game in sanitation, some guests as an extra precaution may want to perform additional cleaning upon arrival.



The CDC recommends all households consider cleaning and disinfecting “high-touch” surfaces daily in shared household areas (e.g., tables, hard-backed chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, handles, desks, toilets, sinks). As has been recommended by many authorities, wash your hands often, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
