Sea-Vu South was developed in 1990 by the Talevi family.
It is now owned and operated by Sea-Vu South LLC.
Our success is directly attributed to our many campers. In our
effort to provide the best seasonal resort environment we have put together
the Sea-Vu South Handbook. Please take the time to read and understand
the following rules and guidelines in order to help make our resort community
one we can all be proud of!
Sea-Vu South sends each seasonal a new
registration card and payment schedule in the fall for the upcoming season.
Sea-Vu South reserves the right to refuse or revoke a seasonal campsite
Deposits: Your registration card and deposit are required by
October 1st for the following camping year. If a deposit is not received,
your trailer must be removed at your expense by November 1st so that we
can contact people who have been patiently waiting on our seasonal waiting
When you return the next season, the deposit will be applied to your
site fee. If you choose not to return after the deposit is processed
it will be considered a storage fee and is non-refundable.
Payments: Payments shall be made following the payment schedule.
If final payment is not received by the due date, Sea-Vu South reserves
the right to charge a late fee. Also, if any payments are still due
by opening day, you will not be able to use your site and will incur a
utility suspension fee of $150/mo. until paid in full. In other words…
please pay on time, it will cost you less.
* Outstanding balances must be paid in full and registration cards must
be completed in order to process your registration for the coming year.
Security Code: Each Seasonal Site will be assigned a security
code. Your security code is for security reasons…the more you give
your code out, the less secure your campground is! As an added measure
of safety please have all guests and visitors check in at the office when

your neighbors, please have your children play in the playground field
and not in the campground roadways.

Please respect your neighbors and the park.
Tip: When leaving the trailer after the weekend… it is advisable to turn off the hot water heater, furnace, A/C,
gas tanks, water line, and empty your rubbish. If you have an awning,
make sure you have a good pitch and keep the fabric taught. Also,
make sure it is anchored down securely. This will help prevent damage
during bad weather while you are away.

~ YOUR SEASONAL
A seasonal rental gives your family the use of a site from Mother’s
Day to Columbus Day weekend. The maintenance and upkeep of your site
is your responsibility. We do request that you check with the office
before starting any site work.
There is a setback of 5 feet from the edge of the roadway for emergency
vehicle purposes. This area is to be grass only, plantings or structures
of any kind are prohibited.
Landscaping: Shrubs, trees, flowering bushes and flowers
are encouraged and may be located any where outside the setback area.
Patios or other ‘hardscape’ elements are restricted to 100 sq feet in
area in an effort to keep adequate green space throughout the resort.
Walls, fences, hedges or other elements are not allowed to identify
or define your site boundary.
Any landscaping must be kept intact on site if you leave the park or
Decks can be built using 2 x 6 pressure treated wood for frames, and
5/4 x 6 pressure treated or composite decking on top or ¾” treated
plywood (inside a room).
Decks must also be built in sections, each being no larger than 8' x
The maximum size is 8' wide by 40' long, or from the trailer hitch to
Again, PLEASE SEE DAVE BEFORE ANY WORK IS STARTED. The
town requires building permits on decks and certain rooms.
Florida rooms/ Screen rooms: Florida rooms and or screen

fire wood. Wood can be purchased in state and at the office.
When in doubt please ask the office!
~ OFF SEASON ~
Much of the work we do to keep our resort looking good is done during
the off-season. The late fall and early spring are essential times
for us to complete necessary maintenance and repairs on our utilities and
facilities. As a result, you may not stay in your unit when the park
is closed. However, you may come up off season to check on your unit
and or clean up your site during the day. Please park in the lot
and walk to your site.
Winterizing: All utilities will be terminated at the close
of the season. Please disconnect your water hose from the spigot
and unplug or shut off the circuit breaker at the electrical pedestal.
Don’t forget to winterize your unit or make arrangements to have it done
(see Resource List).
Here are some tips for packing up your home for the winter:
-Inside your home, turn off the breaker for the hot water heater and
the main (you can leave all other breakers on).
-Turn off your water at the outside post.
-Empty your fridge & freezer and leave the door propped open.
Remove all food from the cabinets.
-Remove all liquids including cleaners, soaps, shampoo, etc. Anything
liquid will freeze and food items will attract animals.
(If you have any cans of food that you are getting rid of at the end
of the season, please drop them in a box at the office. We will donate
them to the local food pantry.)
The resort will not be responsible for units
that are not properly winterized.
Site Cleanup: Bag your leaves, grass, sticks, etc. and
leave them at the end of driveway. Bags will be picked up in both
the Spring and Fall. Please use the paper recyclable bags and DO
NOT mix trash in the bags! Any other time of year, bring yard waste to
the mulch pile.
Switching Sites or Leaving the Park: If you are leaving the park or
just switching your site, you are responsible for any site clean up and
or removal of old decks, mowers, grills, etc. Please notify the office
before hand if you need assistance.
~ SELLING YOUR HOME
We realize that a Park Home on a beautiful site is very attractive to
a potential buyer but remember the trailer sale and site rental are separate
transactions. Some of the conditions to allow an “on site” sale are
You must be up to date on all payments owed to the park. Buyers
need to be interviewed and approved by the office. Any party purchasing
your trailer will be obligated to pay the prorated site rental fee.
Any non-12’ wide trailer older than 8 years cannot be sold on site.
Any 12' wide Park Home older than 13 years old cannot be sold on site.
Once approved, there is a sales fee of $3000.00 owed to Sea-Vu South.
This is usually subtracted from the cost of the trailer and paid from the
buyer. Any additional work required at the time of sale will be assessed
and billed accordingly.
All sales involving Sea-Vu South must be approved by David B. Talevi.
Sea-Vu South reserves the right to regulate and approve all sales, including
price. If any problem should arise regarding a sales transaction,
Sea-Vu South reserves the right to remove the unit from the park.
