How are arrival and departure regulated? (Questions regarding travel and booking periods)?

We rent the carriage house for your arrival starting at 4:00 p.m. and your departure until 11:00 a.m. The remaining time between arrival and departure, we need to clean the Remise.

You are welcome to book a late check-out (until 18:00 clock) at a price of 50.00 EUR unless subsequent booking has been made. In case of overlapping we find’ll find an agreement or refund your charge.

The key that we send to you is valid immediately. It loses its function on the day of your departure at 6 p.m.

Arrivng late at night is no problem.

 

How do I get the key? And how does it work?

You get your key (6-digit code) on arrival at 12:00 (noon) as a text message to the mobile number that you gave us in advance. It is effective immediately and will lose its function on the day of your departure at 6 p.m. Arrivng late at night is no problem. In this case, we recommend that you bring a flashlight. The arrangement of the individual digits is unusual for some of the guests at the beginning.

You will receive a separate key for each of the four apartments. Each key includes a total of five doors: a) entrance, b) Hofdurchgang, c) staircase, d) common room (workshop) and e) your apartment. You need the key to unlook and to look the doors from the outside. From the inside you can close all the doors without a code. First, press the ON button and then follow the menu on the display: a) room number and confirm with ON, b) enter the code, c) turn rotary knob and open the door.

At your appartementdoor please enter directly the 6-digit numerical code.

Please remain calm. Most malfunctions are due to incorrect entries. If it does not work you can just start again. Please do always follow the instructions on the display. Note: the number "0" is located in an unusual place. The rotary knob functions as a key , also the direction of rotation. Also in order to lock the door the rotary knob has to be turned.

 

What do I need to clean and tidy up before my departure?

We try cleaning prices for you to keep low and only charge our cost. As the Ferienremise is quite large and spacious (200 m2) our effort is quite high and is 25.00 EUR per unit , or a total of 125.00 EUR.

This is the price we can meet only in case our guests leave the Ferenremise as clean and tidy, as it is common in holiday apartments . We ask our guests to vacuum-clean and to sweep. The necessary cleaning equipment you'll find in the common room. Please also clean the common room and rinse the dishes. Please don’t leave any food, empty bottles, trash and external items and no residues in the refrigerators behind.

Please empty the trash and put the emptied bucket next to the entrance doors. On your departure, all items must be put back into place.

Our cleaning staff will take care of the rest. We take care of the floors and prevent dust from accumulating on surfaces, check the cleanliness, the function and the completeness of the items and ensure that no objects of the previous tenant remain.

If you do not want to clean or tidy up yourself, please arrange the necessary additional service with Paula and Danica Lind.

 

Are linen and towels included in the rent?

No, the bed linen and 2 towels we charge extra with 10.00 EUR per person if you do not want to bring your own linen from home. Again, we only charge our cost for wash and not the fitting and removal of the laundry. Please make sure that all members of your group use all the linen neccessary. Please clear surplus blankets and pillows in the drawers and protect them.

Upon departure we ask you to completely remove the borrowed linen and put it inside the apartment next door or on the table.

Each borrowed linen set consists of 5 parts : 1 fitted sheet (90 * 200) , 1 duvet cover (135 * 200), 1 pillowcase (80 * 80), one bath towel (70 * 150) and a towel (50 * 100). The fitted sheets for the two sofa beds are 140 * 200.
