Our bi-lingual house manager meets guests at the property on check in and provides an orientation of the house.
She is available during the stay to organize water delivery, gas refill, repairs and emergencies.
Unfortunately, due to the height of the staircase and plunge pool, this property is unsuitable for children.
Ice and Water
We don’t recommend you drink the tap water. You’ll find a water dispenser on the bench. The corner store sells refills for roughly $2 US..
The strongest signal is in the upstairs where the router is located. No password is necessary to access the internet.
