NOTES
∗Osea Island is accessible via a mile-long tidal road for 4 hours every 12 hours when the tide is low. At high tide, access is possible by water taxi. During daylight hours, access is possible by helicopter. A Tide Time chart and specific driving instructions will be provided once your booking has been confirmed.

∗Osea Island is self-catering, and each cottage has fully-equipped kitchens to support this. We recommend purchasing as much of your required groceries as possible before you arrive. However, Ocado will cross the causeway and deliver to the island if you select a one-hour delivery window within the low tide.

∗Pets are welcome on this property, but please bring food and any essentials for your furry friend, as the island has no stores.

∗WiFi is available in most properties on the island and is powered by mobile 4G routers. Due to our remote location, the WiFi can occasionally prove temperamental. We ask guests to please refrain from using the WiFi for streaming purposes.

∗Osea Island supplies firewood/logs for any property, including a working fireplace or wood burner.

∗The heated outdoor swimming pool is open from April to October.

∗Outside barbecues are permitted, and guests may bring their own.

∗Please note that the beds are in standard UK size.

∗Please note that ALTIDO is not responsible or liable for any lost, misplaced or stolen items during guest stays.

– Strictly no smoking within the properties.
– Dispose of rubbish appropriately.
– Keep the property clean and tidy.
– Whilst washing up and stripping the beds at check-out would be appreciated, it is by no means expected.
– Quiet hours are between 10 PM and 9 AM. So please keep the noise down and respect the neighbours.
– Please remember to close all windows and doors when leaving.
– Careful attention to the keys is extremely important. Guests are responsible for any additional costs resulting from misplaced keys or locksmith call-outs.
