Early Check In Requests:
Before you arrive in town, we need to ensure our previous guests have checked out, that the maid service and maintenance has been through the unit, and that linens and towels are fresh and ready for your visit. All this takes time and needs to be done before you check in. Due to this tight time frame, we don’t allow early check ins. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Checkout is at 11am sharp.
The cleaners arrive shortly thereafter in order to get the apartment cleaned before our next guests arrive at 4pm. We apologize in advance but we cannot allow late checkouts at all for this reason.
Please put all the trash into bags (under sink) and throw away (trash cans are located on the right-hand side of the building)
If you have crockery and cutlery, please start the dishwasher before you leave.
Please ensure all the doors are locked when leaving.
