It’s time to talk about the one thing that everyone who rents a condo in Destin wants to avoid – HURRICANE SEASON. Like it or not, Hurricane Season has kicked off here on the Emerald Coast. From now through November 30, the likelihood of a storm increases.
Formations have everything to do with warm water temperatures (80 degrees Fahrenheit and up) in tropical climates. That said, you shouldn’t let this deter you from taking your vacation. To help ease your mind, we’ve prepared some resources to help keep you, your guests and your home safe.
Here are some steps you can take to prepare yourself for Hurricane Season:
- Sign up for local alerts at www.floridadisasteralert.org/alertflorida. If you’re staying in Destin, the county to reference is “Okaloosa.” If you have chosen to stay in one of our Miramar Beach, Santa Rosa Beach or 30A vacation homes enter “Walton.”
- Have a plan. Whether you are East Coast or Gulf Coast, you’re primary residence, second home or vacation rental of choice could be susceptible to a storm. Create a disaster supply kit full of basic household items and keep it handy wherever you are.
- Purchase the “Worry-Free Cancellation.” Just 5% of the reservation, this option will allow you to cancel outside of 30 days prior to arrival, NO QUESTIONS ASKED. It also covers you in the event of a mandatory hurricane or tropical storm evacuation. For more details, just ask your reservations agent when you’re ready to book.
