Check-in time

By appointment only; and is no earlier than 3 pm and no later than 6pm (as this is a residential community) unless you make special arrangements with the host

With international flights and individual circumstances We do make our best effort to accommodate early check-in, however our check-in time stands - we need the time to prepare the place and expected early check-in is an unrealistic expectation putting stress on our staff and those that have those expectations

We cannot always accommodate early check-in. Some solutions to deal with early arrival; a guest could reserve the day before or go get a bite to eat , even go for a swim year round and then check-in after. Thanks for your consideration The rack rate 126 per day before taxes


Some additional costs

There is an extra cost associated with massage, international calls, rental bikes or cars, requested pick up or drop off, island tours or other special requests. Requesting a service booking a time, accepting a charge for a service is associated with special requests, We do not offer commercial credit or charge accounts

Guest room materials

Room items are included for use in the rental and not as take home items. They can be purchased separately in advance


Well, we try hard to reschedule your trip, or rebook the room with someone else to avoid any fees; generally,for a full refund, cancellation must be made 30 full days 50% up to 1 week prior

Absolutely, no refunds after that strict we recommend travel insurance in case you need flexibility, we have to protect others 7-14 separate guests trying to book per spot, (they may end up having to pay 21-70 more a night), the host who guarantees your spot and you in turn pay for that spot during that time

This was a first time for my wife and I booking a place like this to stay. Normally we always stayed in known hotels and resorts (spending usually hundreds a night for just a place to shower and sleep).
