The unit has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, awaiting your arrival. Supplies have been replenished, it should be spotless with everything in good working order. If something has been inadvertently overlooked, please let our front desk staff know as soon as possible after check-in so that it can be corrected quickly. Furthermore, mentioning items requiring attention at check-out is helpful and will benefit the next villa occupants, and you, in the long run.
Treating your villa like your home is something we expect and hope you will respect. Not doing so will be costly for all. Of particular concern is failure to remove golf shoes and ski boots before walking on the wooden decks and through the villa.

FIREPLACE AND WOOD
A complimentary bundle of firewood has been provided for your enjoyment, except in the summer months. You will find the fireplace lighting instructions on the fireplace mantel. Additional firewood bundles may be purchased at the Recreation Centre front desk.
Our valued housekeeping team works to ensure the cleanliness of your villa. All employees are trained to ensure that the high standards Mountainside Owners have come to expect are maintained in an efficient manner. The team works diligently and conscientiously within a very limited time frame. A little bit of help on your part will go a long way and is much appreciated. We politely request that you assist in the following:
- Sofa Beds
Your sofa bed has not been made up. Bed linens are stored in the front hall closet. Unfortunately, the beds are neither designed nor constructed to accommodate sheets and blankets when folded. Leaving these on the sofa mattress while in a folded position damages the mechanism, making it very difficult to open and close. It would be greatly appreciated if, before folding the bed away, it is stripped.
- Clean Up
Upon your departure, it is requested that you put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher and turn it on. The cleaning staff will put them away. We request that the plastic items, including plastic handled stay-sharp knives, pots and frying pans, be washed by hand. Plastic items may melt in the dishwasher, and the pots and pans do not clean properly without hand-eye attention. S.O.S pads have been provided to assist with the pots and frying pans. Please do not use these pads on Teflon coated surfaces.
If the oven is soiled, please turn on the self-clean feature after its last use.
- Garbage & Recycling
All garbage bagged or otherwise, should be taken out on a regular basis to the bins outside of clusters C-E-F-G-J-L-P-R-W.
Also, please take your garbage and recycling to a bin provided when checking out of your unit.
Please do not turn off your fridge before leaving.
As many people are allergic to animal hair, dander, etc. the NO PETS policy is strictly enforced. Animals are not allowed in the villas or anywhere on the grounds, including anywhere on the golf course. Boarding kennels are located in Cranbrook, Invermere and Windermere and we have supplied PET CARE information within our website under the “Services” tab.
Only Guide and Service dogs that are specially trained by an accredited training school and government certified are permitted.
An additional cleaning charge will be levied if anyone is found in violation of this policy to cover the cost of extra cleaning and fumigation. The animal will have to be removed.

SQUIRRELS & CRITTERS
Although these small animals are friendly, cute, and very much a part of the Fairmont environment. We urge you not to feed them, or encourage them to come onto your deck or into your villa.
