We try to engender a friendly laid- back feel to our place, where guests can come and go freely in the knowledge that if something goes wrong there is usually someone around to help.  We do have a few rules in place as this makes for a better and safer experience for everyone.  As a green business we believe that “less is more” however this should not mean fewer home comforts for our guests.  We have done a lot of the heavy lifting in terms of energy & water management, however there is always more we can do, as there really is no plan B.

Please observe the following Property Rules before you book and during your stay:

  •   Check-in: After 16:00
  •   Check out: 10:00
  • Self-check-in with lockbox
