CLEANING Policy                                                        Good Shot Blake (1)

While Dewey Beach is open for travel, people are rightly concerned about the cleanliness of their vacation rentals. We have always prided ourselves and our professional housekeeping team on careful inspections and serious deep cleaning, however, during these times, we hope that our  upgraded standard cleaning protocols empower you to trust that we are providing a safe and healthy environment for you, your family and friends now more than ever. Each property is professionally deep cleaned and disinfected after every stay and we are taking extra care to disinfect high touch areas between stays, providing a selection of recommended cleaning products for guests’ use. Guests are asked to provide their own sheets, blankets and towels(please note that we do have a concierge service where we can order these and other items upon request).  We are also providing a contactless check-in procedure where we set up check-in prior to arrival.  It is of utmost importance that you feel safe while staying at our properties and we want to assure you that our cleaning protocols have been updated to ensure your safety while renting with Dewey Vacation Rentals.
