We do not have a crib/playpen or high chair, but our on-island property manager has some of these that you can rent directly from them.  There is a limited availability of these though, so please let us know as soon as you make the booking if you would like to request this.

Starter Supplies

We also provide some “starter” stuff so that you don’t have to rush to the store when you arrive. You will find 1 of each of the following:

  • toilet paper in each bathroom
  • dishwasher soap
  • garbage bag
  • paper towel roll

“Pay it forward?”

We would love it if all our guests bought into the “pay it forward” concept and left some of the more popular things for the next guests. We’ve tried to start this – for example, we left a full container of laundry soap – this will probably last for quite a few guests, but at some point one of you is sure to find it empty… if you would be so kind as to leave another container for the next guest, and if everyone did this it probably all works out great for everyone!

An initial shopping list

A few thoughts to get you started on things you may wish to have on your initial shopping list when you arrive – but before you head over to the store, please check the cupboards to see what others may have left for you (the “pay it forward” above)

  • Your favourite foods for breakfast / lunch / dinner
  • Snacks – fruits, chips, cookies, crackers, cheese
  • Water for when you are out and about (or purchase a refillable bottle and enjoy some of the best water in the world right out of the taps!)
  • Other drinks – milk, pop, juice, beer, wine, more wine
  • Spices, Salt, Pepper
  • Coffee & coffee filters
  • Tea
  • Toilette paper
  • Paper towels
  • laundry detergent (check above the washer & dryer first)
  • Kleenex (hopefully you don’t have a cold!)
  • Garbage bags

If you think of anything else we should add to this list for future guests please let us know.
