BEACH ATTENDANT: Sea Crest 

Sea Crest is our busiest inclusive beach and its waterfront is the smallest.  This means that the setup is tighter than our other beaches and there is a high level of customer interaction.

 

Property Boundaries:

The north boundary is easy.  We share a boundary with House of the Sun.  Their attendant starts earlier than we do so most days you can follow their lead. 

The south boundary is shared with TEN35.  Set the south boundary line by lining up the white 4×4 post on the southwest corner of the awning over the grills with the north wall of the beach house.  The dune is completely on TEN35’s property. 

Note that the property is wedge shaped.  The front row is small.

We provide beach service for 3 different populations.

UNIQUE WRINKLES:  SOME THINGS ARE ONLY FOR SEA CREST GUESTS

  • The Blue Lounge Chairs.  The blue lounge chairs stored on the beach are for use by Sea Crest guests that opt-out of beach service.  They can use them under/near the pavilion.  During turtle season, it is our responsibility unlock these loungers at the beginning of our shift and to lock them up at the end of our shift.  
  • The Sea Crest Gate.  Only Sea Crest guests can use the Sea Crest gate.  Do not let people from Calini or the beach access group in through the gate.  

 

Talking points:

  • Normal hours 9:15 to 4:00, weather permitting.
  • Each unit is entitled to two chairs and one umbrella, weather permitting.
  • Sets cannot be reserved.  Unattended gear may be reissued to other guests.  
  • Personal gear is not permitted in the beach service area.  If guests have their own gear, your response depends on where the guest is staying. 

A.   If they are staying with Calini or the beach access group, say “Great! The area for personal gear is in front of the flags.”

C.   If they are staying at Sea Crest, say “if you want to opt out of beach service, you’re welcome to put your own stuff up back toward the pavilion.”  

WHat bathroom to use:

You may use the bathroom in the laundryroom.  This is a shared bathroom.  If you make a mess, clean it up. 

 

WHat TO GRAB FROM THE LOCKER BEHIND THE SHOP:

  • Camo (or military) green lanyard
  • Check to see if an updated list has been posted on the box.

Minimum Setup:

Set up at least 8 chairs (4 sets)

Set up the beach attendant station on Sea Crest’s property closer to the water than the dune on Ten35’s property.  People from Calini and the beach access group enter the beach through the private access for Sarasota By the Sea Association, which is next to TEN35.  It is important that the beach attendant station is visible to them.
