CHECK-OUT TIME

Check-out time is strictly 10am. Should you require a later check-out we will do our best but you need to let us know beforehand. If we have guests arriving that day it will be almost impossible to offer a late check-out due to the cleaners needing to prepare for those guests.

CLEANING

You will find the house clean on arrival but please let us know if you are not satisfied. For stays of 1 week there is no cleaning service. After you depart our cleaners will perform that for the next guest. If you are here for two weeks there will be one clean, usually on the middle of your reservation dates. They have a key and will access the house at some point during the day, but not before 10am. If you need a cleaning service more often, please let us know and we will arrange this. An extra payment will apply. On departure it is very important to leave the house (particularly kitchen contents and bbq/grill) clean and tidy. No need for you to perform a full clean! Attention! If you leave behind unwashed dishes or garbage you could be charged with extra cleaning fees.

GETTING YOURSELF ORIENTED

OVERVIEW OF THE AREA

The area of Ixia where the villa is located combines everything; accessibility to the city of Rhodes, the beach which runs along its entire length and close proximity to the Rhodes International Airport. The distance from the nearest cafes, bars, taverns , supermarkets and Ialisos beach is approximately 1 km.

The beach is one of the most organized on the island. During the summer season, it gets rather windy, which makes it ideal for Wind-surfing, Jet skiing, Water-skiing, sailing, parasailing etc. For those you that prefer to swim with larger waves, this location is the best! If long moon light walks and spectacular sunsets is what you would go for, then Ixia is the perfect choice for you!

 

ABOUT THE ACCOMMODATION

APPLIANCE INSTRUCTIONS / INFORMATION

AIR CONDITIONING

Our home has the benefit of air conditioning. Every bedroom has its own AC unit easily handled by remote controls that are located on the bedside tables. Please ensure that all windows and outside doors are closed whilst the AC is running to ensure it operate to maximum efficiency. We recommend a setting of [72F / 22C] which we find keeps the place sufficiently cool. Please acknowledge that operating AC units in lower temperatures for many hours continuously will damage the units causing expensive repairing costs as well as not being able to enjoy it until a specified technician fixes it. That could take more than a day.

CENTRAL HEATING

You can use the AC units to warm efficiently every room.

HOT WATER

The house has installed solar panels. In case of a cloudy day, or in case you spend all the hot water there is a button for the water heater next to the electrical board which is located in the hall of the top floor.

KITCHEN EQUIPMENT

The Dishwasher:
It’s very simple, we promise! You will need to insert one tablet into the flip box container on the inside of the dishwasher door. Then press the program button of your choice – there are a few settings which are obvious – then press the start button.

The Fridge/freezer:
You should not need to adjust any settings. If you run into any difficulties (e.g. it’s not cooling efficiently) please let us know.

The Hob and Oven:
The hob is a four ceramic/electric hob, and the electric oven and grill is normal width. When grilling please leave the door open.

VERY IMPORTANT: Please never put hot objects (such as pot, pans, oven trays etc.) on the kitchen bench. Always use provided heat protection mats to avoid any damage on the kitchen surfaces.

In case of a power outage please check carefully the power panels on ground floor in the laundry room, on first floor next to the WC and on the top floor in the hall.
