To Our Treasured Friends and Valued Guests,
As the coronavirus continues to have an impact around the world, we felt it important for us to communicate with you and share steps we are taking to help keep our guests and team safe.
At our Historic Casa Grandview Bed and Breakfast and our separately licensed Casa Grandview Vacation Rentals, we have always adhered to or exceeded the highest cleaning standards possible with guest comfort being our first priority. We have implemented additional measures in the face of COVID-19 to ensure that our guests feel a sense of safety and security when staying with us. We are confident that these extra measures and precautions make our Inn and Vacation Rentals a safer place to stay so that you can enjoy your business trip, getaway, or vacation. For the safety of our guests, team, and outside contractors, we are providing Personal Protective Equipment like face masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, booties, etc. and have added cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitation procedures that comply with the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), state and local guidelines, as well as those recommended by hospitality industry experts. Most recently, we have participated in training and received certification from Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association’s SafeStaff Sanitation & Safety, American Hotel & Lodging Association Safe Stay, Select Registry Safe Stay, Stay Select, and practice Discover the Palm Beaches Pledge.
These changes cover all aspects of our operations, including breakfast and dining changes, guest room housekeeping, and common area cleaning and sanitation which supplement our already rigorous processes. Our goal is to ensure the utmost in cleanliness and hygiene.
We are now cautiously operating in accordance with heightened CDC, state, local, and health department guidelines for the lodging community in Stage 3 of State of Florida regulations.
Please read about our enhanced procedures below and contact us by email, text, or phone, if you have any questions regarding reservations or area business openings. Email Us– Stay@casagrandview.com, Text Us—561.313.9695, or Call Us—561.655.8932 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. daily.
Guest Check-In and Check-Out
While it is always our preference to personally welcome our guests, we agree with CDC and government guidelines that implementing social distancing guidelines is wise in the current climate. We have implemented new contactless check-in and check-out procedures for the safety of our guests’ and team.
Our reservation system collects deposit payments and processes receipts electronically prior to guest arrivals, so the need for credit cards, pens, or papers to be exchanged at arrival will be limited. If a credit card needs to be run while a guest is checking in or out, we will make sure the card is sanitized prior to its return to the guest.
Prior to arrival, guests will be emailed contactless arrival information and their keyless entry door code. Our cell phone numbers are included in the email. Please contact us via phone or text messaging, if you need anything or have any questions we are here to assist. The guest check-in and reception area remain closed.
Innkeepers and staff are on-site and will be happy to answer any inquiries that you might have while remaining at an appropriate distance. Vacation rentals continue to be offered as self-catering accommodations. We ask guests to practice social distancing, wear masks as required by Palm Beach County, and use the hand sanitizer and wipes provided in their accommodation.
Since all charges are prepaid, there should be no need to settle balances due at the time of check–out. Please secure the door and turn off lights when it is time to check-out.
Our B & B full breakfast experience has been modified to ensure social distancing and safety. Guests may choose to request a grab n’ go option for early departures, a prepared boxed breakfast delivered to their door, at additional cost, or accept the lower advertised room rate if they plan to sleep in and forego breakfast. Breakfast can be enjoyed at an umbrella table for two on the east deck or adjacent to or in their suite at the Sundance North or South Suites.
The following changes continue:
- All self-service beverages will continue to be provided in the guest room in advance of arrival.
