We hope that you had a lovely holiday, enjoyed your stay, and that everything went smoothly. Please feel free to take some business cards for friends, if you’d like. We will be in touch with you shortly.

return pool toys to garden box
leave parasol down

Please leave ready for the next guests. Changeovers are on a tight schedule, and the BBQ is not part of the cleaning routine. We charge £20 if our cleaner needs to do it. We clean the grill plates with soapy water and a steel scourer, and the outside with a soft (non-abrasive) damp cloth.
Accidents happen! We don’t worry about the odd glass or dish, but prefer to know. There’s no need to replace items, as we keep matching spares.
We appreciate feedback about your stay – suggestions help us to improve things for all. Recommendations are particularly helpful for fellow guests: We like to add comments to the website, and are keen to grow our followers on social media.
Snags and suggestions
The utility whiteboard is for quick housekeeping notes (eg light-bulbs, breakages). Don’t assume we know. Hopefully if anything more serious arose during your stay, you would have already told us. Even if it’s something that doesn’t bother you, the next guests may feel differently, and some fixes take time.
We may surcharge in the rare event that the villa is left very dirty, for putting dishes away, for delaying a changeover by checking out late, or for rubbish disposal.
Many thanks! Nikki and Peter
