ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
ARRIVAL - The Housekeeper, who lives on site, will try and meet you on your arrival at your accommodation, which will normally be ready by 2pm but may be ready earlier. At all properties there is a notice board with your name and apartment/cottage number and will be ticked when ready. Your apartment/cottage will be ready for you with the key inside so just show yourself in and the Housekeeper will catch up with you later if she is still busy. If you have any problems please see her and she will be able to help you. However, contact the booking office on 01481 237491 if you need any other assistance.
(You do not have to check or sign in - there is no reception)

DEPARTURE - You must leave your accommodation by 10am - please leave your accommodation as you found it, removing rubbish to the dustbin area. Leave the door open with the key in the door.
If not booking flights with Channel Island Direct and not hiring a car you will need to arrange your own transport between the Airport and your accommodation. We suggest if needing a Taxi on arrival that you Pre-Book with Island Taxis - 01481 700500 - the cost is £15.00 (£20.00 to Ilex) which you must pay on booking BUT they will wait for your arrival, even if delayed. You can take a chance that there will be taxis and the cost is a little lower - approx. £10/£12 but no guarantee of one being available. (The cost on departure day from your accommodation to the Airport is approx. £10/£12) - www.islandtaxis.gg
