Hire a house-checker! Pelican Cove has many part-time residents, most of whom come down to enjoy our winter months to get out of the snow up north. Yes, the “snow birds”. As they return to their primary homes, it is recommended by the Association that they hire a “house checker” to look in on their condo at least once a week to set the A/C, flush the toilets, etc. This will usually prevent any water damage or other problems or catch those problems early on. A monthly fee of under about $25 can be expected and is well worth it!
