What does my Island Host/Personal Concierge do?
Your dedicated Island Host/Personal Concierge is there to assist you in setting up any services or activities before and during your stay here on the Island. They will welcome you at your accommodations while answering any basic house questions. It is recommended that you set up any activities prior to coming to the Island. However, your Island Host can also set up activities while you are here. Your Island Host will also ensure that your vacation itinerary runs flawlessly by checking in with you throughout your stay.
What do I need to bring on my vacation?
Our homes are stocked with everything needed for a comfortable vacation stay. Most properties include the basic house amenities: beach towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, kitchen supplies, a hairdryer, an iron, etc. One travel size shampoo, conditioner, and body wash is provided in most complimentary gift baskets. (Additional gift basket items are available for purchase.) Our homes contain water filtration systems so you don’t need to buy individual water bottles for your stay. (This is an excellent way you can reduce your waste and impact on the island.) Please let us know if you would like other suggestions on how to reduce your waste while on island. Feel free to contact your Island Host for any other accommodation amenities.
Who do I call with house concerns once I am on the island?
All of our homes are appointed with a property manager. This person is responsible for any house questions or property emergencies. Your Island Host, will provide you with their name and contact number. This information will also be provided on both your itinerary and in the house manual.
What are the standard check in and check out times?
All of our properties include a 3pm Check In and 10am Check Out. We do try and accommodate an early check in or later check out, if possible. Most properties offer a Half-day rate. This is to accommodate guests with an evening departure. Please note, that this service needs to be setup prior to arrival.
