COVID-19 Update

Dear Hideaway Residents,
Thank you for your support during this very difficult time. We have all worked together to combat COVID-19 and through your continued diligence and responsibility, we can begin reopening the community’s amenity facilities.
In consideration of applicable state, county and city guidance, the Board of Directors, after consulting with our Association Management and other professionals, have been working diligently to finalize a reopening plan for the common areas, to include the pool. The proposed plan will include controls and procedures recommended by the CDC and other regulatory agencies to best maintain the safety of our residents and guests. We anticipate a phased and incremental reopening of the common area amenities to ensure appropriate oversight and sanitation measures.
FERRY: The 10 pm ferry run will resume effective May 23, 2020.
GRILL: Please follow CDC guidelines when gathering at the community grill area. Remember to practice social distancing.
RENTALS: Charlotte County plan was approved by the state to open short-term rentals. The plan outlines guidelines for reservations, health and safety of guests, and cleanliness of the properties. CLICK HERE for a complete overview of the plan.

    New Renter/Guest Agreement & Ferry Pass

    We have a new ferry pass that will be used beginning November 1, 2019. The old passes will no longer be accepted after November 30, 2019. Please remind your renter/guest that only those listed will be able to ride the ferry. This pass will need to be shown to the captain on both the island and mainland sides each time to board the ferry. The completed and signed passes should be emailed to the CAM (edward@sunstatemanagement.com) and the caretaker (HBBC2015@yahoo.com) prior to your guest arrival.
    The new ferry pass/agreement was designed so that there is more room to fill out the guest information making it easier for the captains to identify who is riding the ferry. The overall ferry pass/agreement is the same information as before in an easier to read format. The new form is available on the COA Owner’s Only page.
