How did JMC Resort Properties come about?

Homeowners in the JMC developed communities located on Clearwater Beach approached the CEO of JMC Communities about creating a professionally operated company focused solely on the profitable management of property owners’ homes. Gil St. Clair was brought in to develop and manage the company’s formation. His years of experience in luxury hotels and high-end vacation rentals dovetail perfectly with the JMC portfolio of quality standards and business practices.

Why is there a 30-day minimum stay requirement?

The 30-day stay requirement is created by the rules and regulations of the individual condominium communities, and is the legal requirement by the City of Clearwater, which has jurisdiction over Clearwater Beach. JMC Resort Properties is committed to adhering to the rules and regulations of each individual community and advises each renter of those rules prior to accepting a rental in a community.

What happens if a renter wishes to leave early?

There is no requirement for a renter to occupy their accommodations for the entire length of the lease. However, an accommodation may not be leased for less than 30 days, and may not be subleased or assigned should a renter depart early. There is no refund or pro rating for stays in which a renter leaves prior to the expiration of the lease period.

What happens in the event that there is a tropical storm or hurricane?

The accommodations that JMC Resort Properties manages are located on a barrier island, and as such, are the first area to be evacuated prior to a tropical system coming to the area. Because our guests’ safety and the protection of our clients’ assets are our top priorities, the management of JMC Resort Properties feels an obligation to have the most up to date weather information at all times, and to keep our guests informed as well.

  • Whenever a tropical system approaches our shores, management will contact our guests and brief them on the next steps should the storm continue toward the area.
  • Guests having to evacuate due to weather will receive a pro-rated amount of their rent as refund for the time not available to them during the storm.
  • Additionally, JMC Resort Properties will assist guests in locating alternate accommodations or safe shelter in the event that they cannot return home during a storm.
