  1. All ecolodges have filtered water machines from which it is safe to drink for your whole stay with us.The water from the faucet is safe to do the dishes, cook or brush your teeth.
  2. Next to the toilet is a wastebasket for toilet paper because we work with septic tanks. Please do not flush the paper in the toilet. Please remove bags and place by the other trash basket. There are new bags to use.
  3. The safe works only with the key and not with the numbers. Please leave your passports, cash, credit cards, plane tickets or other important things there.
  4. The big plastic basket outside the bedroom is for laundry. Anything you would like to have washed, please leave it there. Every morning the cleaning girl will pick it up wash it and dry it for you. It can be clothing, towels or bedding. It is free of charge and included in the ecolodges rate.
