Resort Housekeeping Services


Taking care of your units so you can take care of your guests.


At Resort Housekeeping, you tell us how you want your housekeeping program to run. You'll specify your linen and terry standards. Pick your paper product and "in room" amenity packages. We'll ask you to describe your reporting systems, or just hook us into the arrival/departure module of your computer reservation system. Then sit back and watch it work. Our uniformed, insured, and bonded employees will arrive in clean and decaled vans—no personal vehicles causing security angst or sloppy looking housekeepers trying to deliver a less than sloppy product.

We'll provide the products to your standards (click here to see sample specifications), clean your units to your specifications on time and on schedule, and enter ready rooms or units into your computer program so your front desk will have immediate access to available inventory. Once the day is through, we'll launder the linens to resort industry standards, restock our vehicles, and be ready to do it again on the following day. We'll do it all on a "per occurrence" pricing basis that historically will cost less than your "in house" program. We will communicate with you frequently, accept responsibility for any guest housekeeping issues (real or perceived) and perform callbacks (if any) to ensure guest satisfaction. 



We don’t worry about the housekeeping side of our business. We know it’s taken care of.
— P.B., Resort Housekeeping Client
