COVID-19 Pandemic - Midnight Cove is open for business.

midnight-cove-blog-3-2020 Midnight Cove Sunset

Dear Midnight Cove Insiders,

First, we want to share with you that Midnight Cove is open for business. Our beach is private, so it is not included in the closure of Siesta Key Public Beaches. Our beach and pool will remain open subject to “social distancing” guidelines meaning that no groups greater than ten people are allowed and each group must be separated by at least six feet. This may mean that chairs will not be available for all guests at all times. Your cooperation and understanding are essential. Please be aware that our facilities, including the beach and pool, are subject to closure or usage restrictions without advance notice based upon guidance from health authorities or government officials.

At Midnight Cove, we take the health and safety of our guests and associates seriously. We are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization’s statements regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following the guidelines from these agencies as well as local health departments and medical professionals. Yet as an enhanced preventative measure in light of current related events in Florida, we’ve further enhanced our cleaning, communication, and promotion of healthy hygiene practices.

We also want to share that here at Midnight Cove, we have closed the fitness room and clubhouse until further notice, following what has been recommended. We will limit the number of hours that the office is open to foot traffic each day. We ask that you make every attempt to contact the office via phone or e-mail whenever possible. We have a talented staff that has been working diligently to deal with this difficult situation. The check in process will be conducted via self-check-in using the lock box outside the office. Our team will provide instructions to guests that are using the Midnight Cove Realty rental program.

We do have some amenities here at Midnight Cove that will help make it easier for you to practice social distancing. Our condos all have full kitchens, which allows our guests to prepare food and drinks in their suites instead of going out to restaurants and bars. Publix delivers groceries here at Midnight Cove so you can enjoy a stocked refrigerator without fighting the crowds at grocery stores. We also have gas grills, adequately spaced apart so our guests can prepare food while maintaining a safe distance.

Our team is constantly in communication with local and state officials, ensuring that we are in compliance with all guidelines. We have implemented all CDC recommendations for our business. We look forward to seeing you here on Siesta Key to enjoy the beauty that we share at Midnight Cove. Thank you for your support as we work together to help keep each other safe.

Alana Tomasso
General Manager
Midnight Cove Realty
