Check-in time is from 14:00 until 17:00 on the day of your booking – if you’ll be checking in late buy a better watch or please arrange with management in advance. This is Graskop after all and we’re probably out skydiving, bungee jumping, river rafting – or bungee jumping down the gorge naked with Ninja masks and watermelons (but that’s a story for another day!) Check-out time is before 10:00 a.m. on the day of your departure, penalty fees will apply for late checkouts. Please remember to leave your room keys and gate remote with us when you leave. A charge of R 500 will be levied should you lose your remote & keys.
You are welcome to use the wood provided if it is finished the 24-hour La’ Boutique in town sells wood as well as the Graskop Spar. Please make a moderate fire no more than five stumps at a time please do not make a bonfire, sorry this is not an outside camp under the starry sky’s, the house will actually fill up with smoke and will create damage to the property and we would hate to hold you liable.
Deo Favente is a smoke-free zone. Smoking is limited to the outside entertainment area.
On check-out please advise us of any breakages.
The passage to the right of the kitchen and all outside lights are activated by a day-night switch and will come on as soon as the sun starts to set.
Kids are cute and we love them to bits, we even make our own, but at times they can become a bit “highly-strung” (read – obsessive, loud, arrogant, ignorant, ill-mannered, misbehaved, ill-tempered to name but a few…) and they are therefor to be supervised by parents “at all times”. The definition of “at all times” is from the time you drive through the front gate until we kick you out because you weren’t paying attention to the term “at all times!”
- Swimming Pool
The pool is at your disposal daily. Children’s safety is the total responsibility of their accompanying adults. Nothing is allowed that starts with “hey guys watch this…!” Also, don’t play with the pump, it has been set on an automatic setting, off cause unless you are an engineer and can give us valuable hints.
Only paying guests are allowed on the premises. Please arrange with management should you wish to bring visitors onto the premises. Pets are not allowed, for those who want to argue, yes dogs are classified as pets, yes, even Yorkies and Toy Poms, even if they wear clothes and even if they fit inside your handbag and yes, even if they would “never ever” sleep on the bed and even if they can “talk” and yes even if they are “super clever and potty trained”
- Liability / Damages / Loss or Injury
This is Graskop after all and personally we leave our keys in our cars and we sleep with open doors. However, that doesn’t mean you should! Rather be cautious and do not leave valuable items unattended outside or visible in your car as we do not accept responsibility for any theft or loss. Guests make use of the facilities of Deo Favente entirely at their own risk. The management of Deo Favente it’s employees or representatives are not liable or responsible for any loss/injury/accident or damage to guests, their visitors or their property regardless of the circumstances. We have a local saying – we (Africans) are a tough and resilient bunch and weak cry-babies should rather relocate to New Zealand (where they welcome sissies.) Therefore, small things like theft (we call it re-appropriation) don’t phase us, so take your hits like a man! We also often say “man” when we kinda mean “??” I don’t know what we mean, it just makes sense to us. So, that sentence should have read “… take your hits like a man, man” – but we know that would’ve just confused you! Smile man (see what I mean) … you don’t own all the problems in the world man (now I see you’re getting the hang of it man!) Man, we love our guests and we want to ensure their safety, security and maintain peace, order, and harmony in our guesthouse (do you know how many beauty pageants have been won with that line!) Therefore you shall not act irresponsibly, unsafe, offensive or practice illegal behavior. Guests will be held liable for all damages, breakages, shortages or losses caused by them.
Please do not remove any goods from the room. Remember you didn’t buy the room, only the use of the room. Therefore the items in the room are to be used and not kept, a few examples are scattered cushions, bedding, pillows, towels, baskets, air conditioners, soap dispensers, tiles, globes, carpets, tv’s, beds, lamps, plugs, trays, cups, teaspoons, satellite dishes, etc
- Lastly, and our last Rule
You’ve come here to get away, to relax, to have a well-deserved break and some peace and quiet – we challenge you – Graskop really is the place to do something you’ve never done before, be someone you’ve never been before, go for a walk, go for a hike in the mountains, take a ride on the Graskop Gorge Lift, go bungee jumping naked with the Ninja’s, have a blast, be happy, make sure you take in the breath-taking sunsets, forget the bad, remember the good and for a day or so, just… be…
