About the property

Getting Around:

There are many close by establishments for guests to stock the fridge, do some shopping, and buy souvenirs. However, if your intention is to visit all the historic sites or the beaches, although close, some means of transportation is needed. If you are up for an adventure our public transportation system is very informal but can get you almost anywhere if you have time and patience. But if I were you, I would rent a car or rent a tour guide.

Nearby Attractions:

Check-in is at 4pm, but we do allow early arrivals to drop off luggage and return at the scheduled check-in time.

Late check-out can be confirmed early morning the day of departure.The property manager or owner will make arrangements to meet each guest at check-in and provide keys and access codes to the guest for entry.Managers and owners reserve the right to access the property in case of emergency without previous consent of the tenant.

If the guest is still not satisfied after amends or relocation, no refund can be issued as at this point the host will have lost the opportunity to book another guest in the unit.

Left Property

Please check every drawer and cupboard carefully before you depart to ensure you have all your belongings. Dont forget to look under the beds. If you get home and find you have left something behind, call or email to let us know. We will package the item/items up and let you know the cost of sending them so you can decide if you wish to have them returned. Unless you wish them sent urgently, we will wait until we are scheduled to visit the post office, so you are not charged for our caretakers time and mileage to make a special trip. We will either charge the credit card we have on file or ask for a PayPal payment prior to dispatching the package.

Check out & damage charges

We have left a departure check list and ask that you follow it and leave the property in a neat and tidy condition. We dont ask our cleaning team to wash dishes, move large items of furniture around or clean up after pets, so request that you load the dishwasher and clear away all dirty dishes, return all furniture to its original location, remove pet hair from furniture, and scoop the poop in the yard. We dont like to make claims on damages but if our cleaning staff has to spend additional time above and beyond their allocated hours, to make the property ready for our next guests, we will charge for the additional time. Please note that any damage that occurs to the property during your stay will be corrected using the credit card we have on file where reasonable. We dont expect you to fix a pre-existing plumbing issue, but if you use brute force and break a door knob or faucet then we have no choice but to claim a reasonable amount against the damage charges.

Failure of essential and non-essential appliances and facilities

Please let us know immediately if there is any equipment that is not operating correctly. We will make every reasonable effort to have repairs made as soon as possible; however, there are limited service contractors in our areas, particularly on evenings or weekends.
