Q: Which house will I be in?
A: When you look at the pictures of the houses and townhomes we have to offer, you will notice how beautiful our houses are. When you place your reservation, we guarantee that you will receive the type of house you book, or nicer. When you place a hotel reservation, the hotel does not tell you your room number when you book. Only upon check. In the same way, when you place a reservation with us, we will not assign you a specific address until your arrival. It will be based on the arrival and departure of other guests. Although we will do our very best to provide you with everything you want, every now and then, a guest may place a special request, which we will promise to do our best to honor.

Q: Do you know whom I can contact for tickets for Universal Studios, Disney, etc?
A: For a good start, check out our Orlando links. Also, there will be someone selling tickets at the ballpark.
Q. I’ve signed up for multiple housing for my team, why can’t I get my addresses now?
A. We make every effort to place the housing units as close together as possible. By placing teams in housing this far in advance, any minor change (arrival/departure of any team, reducing / increasing a housing size) will cause the intricate placement of housing to be shifted entirely or partially, therefore we wait until after the “dust has settled” and teams have firmed up their travel plans and house size needs.
Q. What are your business hours?
A. Our normal business hours are 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
Q. How do you apply for a tax exempt form?
A. To obtain an application form to receive tax-exempt status visit the tax exempt faq at the IRS website.
