Our housekeeping teams are professional hospitality trained and monitored and follow strict cleaning and disinfecting protocols.

We strongly recommend guests take out travel insurance to have cover for inability to travel due to sickness or for illness during travel away from home. If a guest becomes ill before they stay with onefinestay we refer them to their travel insurance provider. If a guest becomes ill or suspects they have contracted the Covid-19 virus whilst staying in one of our homes or villas, our guest services team is available 24/7 for additional support. Upon first notification, we will contact the local health authority on behalf of the guest for instructions and work with them to deliver medicines, provisions or assistance as needed. If a guest needs to stay within the home they would need to pay for the additional nights.
