Occasionally, some pools may experience a mild ground current. Generally, this is not caused by a pool defect or the household electrical system, but appears as a result of the earth’s own natural electrical current. Certain properties may be affected more than others and the current tends to be intermittent in nature. Please be advised, however, that this may affect the operation of pacemakers and other similar devices.

Gas fireplaces are shut down from May 15 until September 15.

Service Animals, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), includes animals that have been trained to perform specific tasks for individuals with a disability. These tasks are typically assisting those with hearing or sight impairment, assisting an individual who suffers from seizures, and assist those who suffer from Post-Traumatic disorders. Service animals are allowed in any of Sandbridge Blue’s properties, but we ask that the leaseholder makes us aware that a service animal will be present prior to check-in.
Emotional Support Animals (ESA), also known as a “comfort animal,” is a dog that belongs to a person who is emotionally or psychologically (psychiatrically) disabled. The person’s doctor (a licensed mental health professional) has determined that the presence of the animal is necessary for the person’s mental health and that they are considered disabled as a result. The licensed mental health professional must provide Sandbridge Blue a letter of prescription stating the dog is necessary for the normal day to day functioning of the disabled person.
Emotional Support Animals are allowed in any of Sandbridge Blue’s properties, but we ask that the leaseholder makes us aware that an emotional support animal will be present prior to check-in.
Therapy Animal (usually a dog) has been obedience trained and screened for its ability to interact favorably with humans and other animals. The primary purpose of a Therapy Animal is to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, hospices, disaster areas, and to people with learning difficulties. Although Therapy Animals provide a very important therapeutic service, they are NOT considered “service animals” and they and their handlers have no protections under federal law (ADA, the Fair Housing Act, Air Carrier Access Act, etc.).
Companion Animal (usually a dog) describes an animal that provides only companionship as a pet, rather than performing useful or necessary tasks. They are NOT considered “service animals” and they and their handlers have no protections under federal law (ADA, the Fair Housing Act, Air Carrier Access Act, etc.).
Those with Therapy Animals or Companion Animals are not allowed in non-pet friendly properties. If the animal is a dog we do have a large selection of dog-friendly properties to choose from.

Sandbridge Blue properties provide a charcoal or gas grill for our guests to use while occupying the home for their vacation week (see listing for each property to see which is provided). Guests are responsible for cleaning and removing the remnants from around and on the grill after usage. Grills are not permitted to be moved or placed on the wooden decks of the house due to the hazard of fire. These rules also apply to large propane deep fryers. The heat and grease can cause extensive damage to screens, wood & siding on the home as a result of being placed or left too close and of course also present a fire hazard. Grills and fryers should only be used on concrete surfaces away from the house for safety’s sake.

Sandbridge Blue offers optional vacation insurance. If you wish to purchase vacation insurance, you must include payment for the premium along with your signed lease agreement within 24 hours of making your reservation. Travel Insurance is offered on all lease agreements. Insurance includes coverage for medical emergencies and cancellation insurance for a mandatory evacuation. This insurance covers the rental rate and taxes paid for the home you reserve. The total cost is included in your initial balance due, but you may decline the travel insurance coverage. The initial balance due would then be the amount indicated on your lease, less the exact cost of this coverage (also indicated on your lease). We strongly urge you to purchase this coverage to protect your vacation investment, as no refunds will be offered, even in the case of a mandatory evacuation. If you have questions, please contact Red Sky Travel Insurance Guard at 1-866 621 2070. You may read details on their website 24 hours a day- Red Sky Travel Insurance
