The pool is cleaned on Wednesday morning, usually about 9. You don't need to be home, but just so you aren't surprised when you see people near the pool.
Whale Huys is our dream retirement home and we are delighted to be able to share this magical place with people from around the world. We have carefully selected quality furnishings for the villa to make us feel at home. Rather than a log list of "do's and don'ts". We would ask that you treat it with the same care and respect we do. But for complete clarity on a few common points of question: There is no smoking allowed anywhere inside the villa and no pets allowed.
