On site Generator: We have a large diesel powered generator which will automatically engage should there be an island power outage (which can happen frequently!). If operating on the generator, please minimize the use of AC. Toilets & Plumbing:
We ask that you do not flush any foreign objects or personal hygiene products down the toilets! Our onsite waste system is far more susceptible to having issues than a public sanitary sewer system. Please report any running toilets immediately.
Showers and Faucets: Please help us conserve water by not allowing the water to run while washing up or brushing teeth, flush only when necessary, and do your best to take short showers. If you have children, please keep this in mind and explain to them why it's so important to conserve our most precious resource. Please report any running toilets or dripping faucets to the villa concierge immediately. We appreciate your help.
