Housekeeping

Should you require a cleaning/changeover service, then we have several companies who we can recommend.  They are our preferred cleaning contractors all of whom we have had many dealings.  They would be able to manage the cleaning of your holiday home, laundering of bed linen, re-making of beds and advise on the release of the breakage/damage deposit.

In addition, they can also provide the very popular ‘Welcome Packs’.  The content of the pack is very flexible and would depend on how much you would like to budget for the pack.  An example of a packs content might be a welcome card, flowers, tea/coffee (top up), milk, bread, butter, fruit juices, bottle of wine, copy of the Isle of Wight County Press and a box of sweets.  The pack is optional but it is very well received by guests.  We feel that these little ‘extras’ can make all the difference when guests are deciding whether to re-book for the following year.  Please let us know if you would like any further information on housekeeping services and we will arrange for someone to contact you.
