Most frequent questions and answers

We ask that upon booking, you disclose all of the names of the guests that will be staying or visiting even if it is for the day. We are OK with day guests as long as you do not exceed or max occupancy of 14 guests at a time.

If you wish to have additional guests, please just send an email with the additional guests names when you know them.

Sometimes we have availability before/after your stay to extend. You can visit our booking calendar to see if there is availability. Please note it MUST follow our cleaning schedule so check in/out must be on a monday or friday. There is no discount if you want to leave early.

We do not allow events or parties on our property. We are OK with Bachelor/Bachelorette parties as long as things stay quiet for the neighbors and any decorations are removed from the site. Please do not put tape on our walls or furniture.

11pm is quiet time. Please ALWAYS keep noise to a minimum and be respectful of our neighbors. Music must be off by 11.

Our cottages are thoroughly checked between guests so we know when something is broken. Sometimes the guest before you may have broken something and we will do our best to fix it before your arrival however we are sometimes not able to make it happen in time.

Please just be honest with us! Because our cleaners check everything between guests we will know when you broke something VS. when something was already broken. Depending what it is, we may ask you to replace or we may take some of your damage deposit. We appreciate full honesty!

The security deposit is returned within 3 business days of check out. However, if there is something broken we may need additional time to return a portion of the payment until we find out a replacement cost, extra cleaning cost etc.

An emergency such as a fire or medical emergency please call 911 immediately.

An urgent need such as something you have damaged, Air conditioning broken, an appliance not working etc. please contact us via email immediately at info@simplyparadisefr.com We will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible. Please note we do not answer emails in the evenings and some weekends we are not as reachable. We do not have 24 /hr concierge as we are a private, family owned cottage rental business.
