The main Genova entry is manned with controlled-access to the main community entry, the pedestrian gates and the club facilities. Genova residents will be provided “chip” cards. A valid driver’s license and instant security check will be required of everyone else. In addition each building has its own controlled-access. These condos are truly “lock-and-walk”.

Yes. However, to discourage/prevent transient rentals, the lease period must be at least two months and you cannot lease your home more than three times per year. If for some reason the lease is less than two months it will be deemed a two-month lease and your condo will be required to remain unoccupied for the un-leased period before or after the tenant’s occupation.
