NOISE AND DISTURBANCE:    We are a residential establishment in a quiet, peaceful area. It is important that our guests are respectful to each other and our neighbours and therefore we request that there be no loud music or noise after 10.00 pm and that only paying guests may be in the flats in the evenings after 10 pm. Please note that Ansteys is NOT a party venue - we are in a residential area and we cannot allow loud noise and music out of consideration to our neighbours and other paying guests. Please be considerate when using the communal ablution facilities as there are guests staying in the rooms close by. If any noise and disturbance persists despite warnings from Management, we will have no choice but to evict you out of respect and consideration to our other guests and neighbours.

SUPPLIES ON ARRIVAL:   We supply toilet paper but we do not supply any toiletries, coffee, tea or sugar etc. as these units are self-catering. These items can be purchased at Reception if need be, or visit Heidi’s Café (above the swimming pool) for breakfasts, good filter coffee and delicious home baked treats.

MONKEYS:   Please do not feed the monkeys! Ensure that all doors and windows are closed when you go out so that the monkeys cannot access your apartment. They are very clever and know just what to do to get in - they can cause great havoc if they get into the apartments and WILL steal your food and whatever else they can get hold of.

TV CHANNELS AND DVD'S :    We have enabled most of our apartments with DSTV so that you can bring your own DSTV decoder and Smartcard but please ensure you bring the correct cables as we do not supply those.  For those who don’t bring their own decoders, we have 2 x DSTV Channels as well as all the local channels (SABC 1,2,3, etv).  The one DSTV channel is controlled by the TV in the main reception lounge.  Please advise reception if you are watching a movie or wish to watch sports but please understand that we have to cater for all guests and there might be times where we are unable to comply with everyone’s requests.  The other DSTV channel is the Owners personal channel and whilst it will be available on your TV, it is up to their discretion to change that channel. 
DVD’s are available at reception for a nominal refundable deposit.

TV, LIGHTS, WATER etc:    Environmental conservation is important to us and we try our utmost to do our bit where possible - please be mindful that the TV, lights, fans and air conditioners (where applicable) in your flat are turned off when and that all taps are closed properly when you leave your flat/room.  Please check your outside lights as well.
