Can infants or babies stay at Mariners?
Babies and infants can stay in the house just be aware that we have no cot or baby facilities (ie. stair gates or child toilets etc…) so you may need to bring these yourself. I have also made no attempt to baby proof furniture and the spiral stair case can be difficult for young children so they may require more supervision during your stay. If you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Do you offer any discounts?
I only offer two discounts; weekly (10%) and monthly (25%), which will have been automatically applied to your total booking amount. Any other discount requests will be declined.
When is check-in / check-out?
Generally, check-in is from 15:00 on the first day of your holiday; please provide an accurate time and notify me of any changes so I can arrange for either myself or my manager and neighbour Anna to welcome you.
The property must be vacated by 11:00 on the last day, please ensure that the house is tidy upon departure, that all appliances have been switched off and windows closed.
If you would like to check-in/check-out outside of these hours, get in touch and I will see if it is possible.
Can I leave my luggage in the house?
You may leave luggage with my neighbour and manager Anna after your stay, provided this has been arranged before your departure time and a pickup time decided in advance. Alternatively you may be able to extend the check out time, if the property is available. Get in touch and I’ll see if it’s possible!
Will you be there during my stay?
I live abroad so will be unlikely to be present during your stay, however you will get the use of the entire house and all the amenities during your holiday. I will be available by email and phone once you book to ensure you will have everything you need for your stay.
My lovely neighbour and manager Anna who lives next door will be there to greet you, advise you on what to do in the area and resolve any issues you may have. If Anna is not available visit Nici or her team in Lishe Café on Calstock High Street, open Tuesday – Sunday, 10:00 – 16:30, be sure to treat yourselves to some delicious cake while you’re there!
Anna can also escort you to some of her favourite secret spots during your stay for an additional cost – delicious Cornish pasty included of course!
