Rianne, your hostess speaks French, German, Dutch as well as English and welcomes all guests upon arrival. She is more than happy to assist with restaurant bookings, information about walks, day trips, island excursions, activities and places to visit.



Cancellation Policy and Booking Terms

  • Each room "sold" is at least 25% of our B&B income and to lose that through a cancellation or "no-show" is most upsetting and not good for business. A booking, either verbally or in writing, is a binding contract that must be honoured by both parties.
  • If you use a credit or debit card we may not actually charge your account until you are with us, however if you need to cancel or don't "show up" then we reserve the right to charge your account for the fees due.
  • Please note that any changes to the length of stay may also be regarded as a cancellation so check with us prior to making amendments.
  • Please give as much notice as possible if you have to cancel your reservation, as we may offer a full refund in the event that we're able to relet the room(s), otherwise the following will apply:
    • Cancellations giving a minimum of 2 weeks' notice - full refund of net amount
    • Cancellations giving less than 2 weeks' notice - 50% refund of net amount
    • Cancellations giving less than 1 week's notice - no refund
