Cottages are stocked with all kitchen items that you would need to cook and prepare food. You get towels to start and when you need more, you place the ones you are no longer using outside your door. I am sure you can request additional linens if needed. No housekeeping for short stays. Also a broom and dustpan for sandy shoes!

You put your towels that you want replaced on the porch steps (any & every day) and they will give you clean ones. You take out the trash to the bins next to your cottage. If you stay a week, you can ask for maid service in the middle of your stay. I am sure that if there was a concern, they would come at your request, they have always been helpful to us.
