  1. Due to the deep cleaning involved and the time needed to complete our tasks, we have a new checkout time of 10.30 am to enable completion of this cleaning and the extra drying time required.
  2. One night stays will no longer be permitted due to the necessity to conduct a deep clean after every stay. Gift vouchers for one night stays will be assessed on a case by case basis.
  3. As a guest of Kudos Villas, you have an obligation to advise us of any change in your health pertinent to COVID-19. Prior to, during and in the days after your stay.
