When should I take pool heat?
We recommend that pool heat is chosen (if you intend to use the pool or Spa) between October and May. The Pool heater is preset to the desired temperature (normally around 85 degrees) and cannot be adjusted.

The charges for this service are shown on the individual ‘prices' page as pool heat is not inclusive and is only offered as an option on any of our homes.

While we take every precaution to ensure that pools are heated as specified, weather conditions may (occasionally) affect the temperature of the pool.













Is Maid Service included?
Our home is rented to guests on a "self-catering" basis. Each property is cleaned and inspected prior to arrival, and on departure of every guest party. For your convenience and hygiene, each home is provided with a vacuum cleaner, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, mop, brush and pan for maintaining the property cleanliness during your stay. St. Andrews is treated regularly for insects, and the pool is treated to maintain its cleanliness.

Some guests that stay for a longer period (over 14 days) request a mid-term clean, which can be arranged in advance through our management company for a standard fee.
