Work from anywhere. Pack your bags and move your office to the desert.
At Gone South Vacation Rentals, we recognize that these are uncertain times and we are all adjusting to a “new normal.” While the COVID-19 virus interrupted our ability to welcome guests to our vacation rentals for a period of time, it has not altered the Gone South mission of delivering the very best vacation experiences filled with lasting memories of time spent with friends and family. We are so thrilled to be able to welcome you back to the Desert!
We would be seriously amiss not to acknowledge the many people who have experienced heartbreaking loss and sickness during this pandemic; our hearts go out to them and to all of the essential workers who are fighting to save lives and keep our communities operating safely.
The one "silver lining" in this pandemic is: The world has been forced to slow down.
Many of us have had the opportunity to spend much-needed, quality time with our family members. We've had the chance to live without our usually hectic schedule with meetings, appointments and social gatherings dictating our days.
We can rest. We can think clearly. We can breathe. And, with many employers allowing their employees to work remotely and many schools opting for distance learning, we can work and learn from anywhere!
We invite you to move your office and your kid's school to our pool-side settings in Legacy Villas and Mountain Cove. Enjoy our private, air-conditioned indoor spaces with high-speed wireless internet, and our beautifully designed outdoor spaces (pool-side cabanas, hammock gardens, quiet patios and balconies). These tranquil settings, combined with desert sunshine, will naturally fuel productivity.
There is something to be said for the ability to crank out quality work when you wake up in paradise. While you may still be working, the benefits of looking out at the palm tree-filled desert landscape, a lunchtime walk along the Santa Rosa Mountains, or an evening swim are immeasurable. And for the kids, we can’t think of a better recess than a swim in one of our pools or lunch on your private patio.
We have adjusted our cancellation policy to accommodate any future travel bans or restrictions due to Covid-19. We want to be sure that you feel as comfortable and secure as possible when planning and booking your vacation with us.
We want to assure you that safety is our top priority, and we will do all that we can to help prevent the spread of this virus across our rental properties to keep our guests and our Gone South Vacation Rentals team safe!
To that end, we have been, and will continue to monitor the situation and follow all guidelines put in place by The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). In addition to our usual focus on exceptionally clean properties and guest safety, here’s what Gone South is doing to keep our properties in top shape:
- Cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces and common areas (tables, chairs, doorknobs, light switches, remotes, sinks, etc.) based on recommendations from the CDC
- Rigorous laundering schedule – all bedding including comforters and blankets washed between each reservation
- Using disinfectant cleaning solutions following the approved products list found here
- We use a LOCKBOX entry, so there is no need to interact with anyone upon arriving or departing.
- There are currently pool occupancy limits to allow for social distancing - pool reservations are required at Legacy Villas during the weekends (Friday and Saturday) and holidays.
- The Legacy Villas' Fitness Center is currently closed based on the State of California Covid-19 guidelines.
We are prepared to make additional alterations to our daily procedures, should the need arise, and will continue to monitor the situation and keep you up-to-date with any changes. As we move forward, the most effective way to stay healthy and minimize the spread of infectious disease is to follow basic best health practices.
We appreciate you choosing to book your vacation with us, and we’re praying that all of our guests stay safe and healthy during this time.
