House Rules and Helpful Tips
Welcome to our home away from home! Nexta Sea is a very special place to us. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and ask that you treat it as your own. Here are a few house rules we ask that you keep in mind.
- No smoking.
- There are a shower and hose under the house. Please rinse all sand and beach tar from your feet, legs, and body before entering the house. Please, don’t use the indoor sinks and showers to rinse sand.
- Please do not sit on the indoor furniture in wet/sandy swimsuits.
- When doing laundry, please rinse and shake all sand from swimsuits and clothing before washing. Sand in the washing machine, sinks, and indoor showers will clog the drains.
- Be careful when exiting and entering the house. Wind gusts can be strong at the beach. Be sure to hold onto the storm door and make sure it closes all the way.
- Keep the windows closed when the air conditioner is on unless you are cooking.
- Use the BBQ on the concrete slab and attend to it. After use, please clean the grill. Do not store it under the house until cooled and all flames are out.
- Use soft, nonabrasive sponges and cleaner on the stove cooktop.
- Keep indoor furniture inside the house and outdoor furniture outside.
- All upstairs windows, except for the kitchen window, have been sealed shut to minimize leaks during hurricanes and nor’easters. These windows will not open. You can open the sliding door, turn on the kitchen ceiling fan, and open the kitchen window to create a cross breeze.
- This house has a septic system. There is no garbage disposal. Please scrape all food scraps into the trashcan before washing or putting dishes into the dishwasher. Only put toilet paper into the toilets. Avoid pouring bleach or chemicals into the drains.
- Keep the laundry room key on the anchor key hook by the front door, so it doesn’t get lost.
The TVs upstairs and down (with the exception of the pirate room, which is DVD only) are smart TVs. Please, feel free to sign in with your streaming accounts, just remember to sign out before you leave, so other guests aren’t able to use your accounts.
Turning the bedroom TVs on requires a couple of extra steps:
1. Turn on DirecTV power.
2. Use TLC TV remote to select satellite TV.
3. Press the Exit button to close the program description.
3. Use DirecTV remote for channel selection, volume, and to power on and off.
While we set them to stay off, the bedroom TVs also have status lights on the bottom that may decide to come back on when the TV is off. The lights may be a little brighter than you want when sleeping. If that happens here are the instructions to set them to off:
