Common Questions about our Vacation Homes

Below you will find a list of important information for your stay with us. 
  • Check-in: Check-in time to your villa is 4:00pm 
  • Check-out: Check-out time is 10:00am. If you would like a late check-out please notify the management company, there is a charge for a late check-out. The morning of your departure, please remove towels and sheets and place by the washing machine. If you can start the first load we'd greatly appreciate it! 
  • Air Conditioning: The air conditioning unit must not be set below 74 degrees on any thermostat. The unit can freeze if set below this level. 
  • Electricity: In the US, the voltage is 110 and sockets take a flat two pin plug. Always use a proper adaptor, never attempt to push bare wires ino the sockets. The lamp switches are twist style. UK chargers will operate with the correct adaptors, but will not generally display that the charger is actually working; however, they do take muc longer to charge than normal.

  • Blinds: The blinds in the house are very fragile. If opening a door, please open the blinds fully, as they will break. When opening, please turn the vertical slats to the open position before drawing them back, as this can also damange them. If they go out of alignment, please do not try and adjust by moving the mechanism at the top. Call the management company to re-align.
