Notes about Pool and Spa
Pool heating is charged at an additional £115 per week (recommended Oct to April.) Please note the following:
The pool heater heats the water to 85-90 degrees F. The jacuzzi spa is attached the the pool so the water is the same temperature as the pool (it is NOT a steaming 'hot tub' which gets to 100+ degrees F so please be aware of this upon booking.) However, it is still lovely to relax in after a day at the parks!
Please note that the pool heater is not operational at air temperatures of less than 54 degrees F, so if you are visiting in the winter months, and the air temperatures are very low (especially at night), the pool heater may not be able to get to the 85-90 degree temperature during the day, and may therefore be unusable (especially if you have young children) until the air temperature increases. Please bear this in mind before paying for pool heating - it is advisable to check the weather forecast 1 week before travelling, and if required, the pool heating can be paid for and turned on before your arrival. It can take 24-48 hours for the pool heater to reach the 85-90 degrees F temperatures, and the insulated pool cover must be used at all times that the pool is not being used, especially in the winter months.
If pool heating is not booked before arrival, it can be paid for during your stay, but there will be an additional $25 charge made by the management company, and they will not attend out of hours or at the weekend to turn on the heater.
If you have any questions about whether you need the pool heating, it is advisable to contact me in advance to avoid any disappointment. Thank you.
