Your checklist for a hassle free holiday

Your stay

BEFORE - your stay

 Check the expiration date of your passport and double check the visa requirements!
 Make sure your bank let you use your credit cards in South Africa
 Please do not forget the downpayment for your stay
 Book a rental car
 Book a taxi
 Book a seat in the amazing restaurants ahead of your stay!

 If you like reading our information folder which we put in the rooms in advance – you will get the short form explained by Ellen at your arrival!

DURING - your stay

If you rent the whole house in low season (May to October) you pay for electricity on a prepayment system and for the use of firewood during your stay as described on your booking confirmation. Ellen will read the electricity meter with you when you arrive and when you leave. You pay her for the units used (R3,4 per unit) or simply top them up by buying the units at the gas station. It sounds complicated, but I promise it is not. Ellen will definitely help you.

 You can park your car outside but don’t leave any valuables in the car
 The small garage is for your sports equipment
 The cushions for the sunbeds are in the box in the garage
 Braai is fun and a South African tradition – help yourself with wood
 We have towels for the room, the garden and the beach
 Every room has its space in the fridge and in the shelves in the kitchen

 If you like something say it and don’t wait until the last day of your stay :-)

 If you don’t like anything don’t wait neither – just speak to us and we will do our best!

 If you buy something in SA you could declare VAT at the airport (14%) on the way home.

After - your stay

Before you leave we would like to give you a quick checklist for your departure:
 Take all your things with you from the safe and leave the safe open please
 Don't forget your passport!!!
 Make sure that you have settled all open invoices with us :-)
 If you go to the airport make sure you consider the rush hours in Cape Town. (06.00 – 09.00 and 16.00 – 18.00)
 If you need a taxi call: +27 21 44 84444 or use UBER (we love it!)

 Plan with us your next stay to make sure we have availability for you and your friends or family!

 You will get a 5% discount if you come again and book through us! (High season only!) 

 If there is nobody for a last hug in the house please close all doors and the gate and throw the key into the post box!
