INTRODUCTION


Nick and Irene MacPhail together with their two sons, Rowan and Tobar, introduce you to their Guernsey self catering seaside cottages at Mas des Sable. We would be honoured for you to entrust us with your holiday accommodation needs and feel sure that your holiday here would be a happy one.

Guernsey self catering holiday accommodation at Mas des Sables has been designed and equipped with the features that we would have liked to find in the self catering homes that we have stayed at in the past.

Your accommodation would be in a granite cottage, which benefits from modern insulation and double glazing to keep cool in summer. Central heating with individual room temperature control ensures comfort for early and late visitors. The pine kitchen is equipped with a fan oven with vented hood to give modern convenience (though with so many restaurants of every standard on the island you won't need to be chained to your kitchen ). In addition to the fridge,incorporating a 3 star icebox, a microwave cooker has been included for speed and ease. As we know that nobody wants to do the washing up on holiday a dishwasher has been provided so you may enjoy doing more leisurely things.


The compact lounge/dining area is provided with a ctv/video/dvd player and freeview (personal sky cards can be brought and operated in the boxes) and a second television is provided in the master bedroom to save family arguments when the football clashes with X-factor.

The bathroom is equipped with a bath with shower attachment which has thermostatically controlled bath filler and shower mixer valve to ensure the safety of younger family members. On the ground floor there is a doubled-bedded bedroom which has its own en suite wc and washbasin and two twin-bedded bedrooms on the first floor. Built in wardrobes and bedside table with table lamps are to be found in all three bedrooms. A smoke and heat sensing alarm system, automatic emergency lighting to the stairs and fully opening windows in each bedroom ensure our guests safety.



Hardwood tables and chairs on a patio outside your holiday home will enable you to enjoy an evening glass of wine or an 'al fresco' breakfast. A gas barbecue is available for each cottage. The private courtyard provides a peaceful haven from the outside world and security of off street parking. One parking space is provided for each cottage.

There is a utility room for the use of both holiday homes which has an automatic washing machine, iron and ironing board and for inclement weather drying, tumble dryers. A sink with hot and cold water enabling beach wear to be rinsed upon returning home. Drying lines are provided in the rear garden. All fresh linen and towels are provided but guests are required to bring their own beach towels.

Mas des Sables is situated between two of the island's most beautiful sandy beaches - shown at top of the page. Saline beach (also known as Grandes Rocques beach) and Port Soif Bay. Saline beach is sandy at most stages of the tide and swimming can be enjoyed at both high and low tides. Port Soif Bay is a beautiful sandy cove at high and low tides, lowering to reveal a myriad of rock pools with stones to be turned revealing darting shrimps, crabs, baby fish, starfish, in fact all the creatures children delight in discovering.

Grandes Rocques is blessed with some of the prettiest sunsets on offer and few places can offer a lovelier evening stroll. The more energetic will appreciate the flat coast roads and cycle hire is readily available for those not wishing to bring their own. We are on a beautiful coastal Nature Trail and close to other countryside Nature Trails and coastal footpaths which are ideal for those who enjoy walking and cycling.




On the corner of our road is situated Cobo Butchers which incorporates a delicatessen and off licence and Cobo village is about ten minutes walk away and offers a supermarket, post office, bank, chemist, newsagent/general store and a butchers shop. Within about five minutes walk bar meals are available and there is a bistro restaurant. The west coast bus terminus is one minute away. For the sake of other guests who follow we do not allow pets. The cottages are NON-SMOKING but for the convenience of smokers ashtrays are provided outside on the hardwood tables in the patios where guests are permitted to smoke.

CONDITIONS OF BOOKING.A non-refundable deposit of 50% of accommodation cost will secure your booking. The balance is due at least eight weeks prior to your arrival, in default of which the reservation may be cancelled. There are no refunds for cancellations less than 8 weeks prior to the booking unless we are able to rebook that cottage. The signed reservation form denotes a contract and you are advised to insure against possibility of cancellation and for medical insurance as there is no reciprocal arrangement with the UK to cover medical costs in Guernsey. Please note that only those named on booking forms will be accepted as guests in the cottages - any guests not named in reservations may be turned away. We also strongly advise that insurance is taken out for injury, loss or damage to guest's property while on the premises as no responsibility can be accepted by Mas Des Sables Seaside Cottages owners. Any breakages or damage must be reported to the management straight away who will decide if reimbursement for such breakages or damage is required and to enable management to rectify any problems before the next guests arrive. The cottage should be left in a clean and tidy condition and the beds stripped of linen. If not left clean and tidy we reserve the right to make an extra charge.
