Main Gate Goes Live!

The new main gate entry system is scheduled to go live Monday, July 31. From that day forward access may be gained using your RFID tag attached to your vehicle, the code that has been assigned to your unit, by dialing the phone number supplied by you (this is the same way as the old system) and pressing 9 on your phone, or by dialing the office code (0033 – call) during normal office hours. Owners who rent must contact the office to obtain a code for your renter along with the required paperwork and payment PRIOR to occupancy....

The Main Gate

The main gate is operational now, but we have not begun to lower it until all the data entry for each unit has been accomplished. This is to minimize inconvenience. The Board of Directors asks that owners with vehicles that are not currently on property contact the office to make arrangements to come in to receive their RFID access tag and have it applied to their vehicle. Also, and very important, please provide the office with an updated phone number if you want it entered into the system. That phone number will be the one a guest will use to call you to gain access. This can be a land line, cell phone, or long distance line. For owners who rent their unit, please contact the office to obtain a code which you can utilize for your renter. This code will only be activated for each rental period. Additionally, the new phone system at the gate will still use the same code for the office who can activate entry during business hours. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office. The Board worked hard to provide the community with a more secure gate system. While there may be some adjustment period, we are confident the new system will operate effectively for...

Happy Fourth!

Happy Fourth of July All! We hope everyone has a great time. Please remember that fireworks are not allowed anywhere on the property and glass is never allowed in the pool areas – both for obvious reasons. The Office will be closed on Monday the 3rd. Parking passes may be picked up either Saturday the 1st or Wednesday the 5th.  ...

Summer is Here!

Well, maybe not officially, but certainly weather-wise. It’s hot. It’s sticky. It rains a lot. Our new roofs are holding up wonderfully, but the rain brings other challenges, among them street flooding. Our inside street, Medallion Blvd., has a long history  of flooding in a good downpour, particularly around the big pool area. Fortunately, we are not in our busy season and so parking is ample enough to allow you to move your vehicle to another spot. Rex can also flood by the Fire Station. Drive carefully. The City has plans to redo the storm drains on Rex Place someday and when that happens we are hopeful it will alleviate some of our flooding issues. Florida beaches are still a wonderful place to be in the summer. Dress appropriately, drink plenty of fluids, and have a good time!...
